Free Wichita Printable Downloads

_DSC0030.jpg

I’ve been promising for a few weeks to get these printable downloads up on the blog, and here they are! We kind of just threw these up on the wall in our new bedroom because they were already framed from our old house’s dining room. They’re possibly a teeeeny bit small for the space, but that just gives me an excuse to move wall art around in a few months.

These printables are just black and white PDFs, and sized for printing at 16x20”. You’ll need Adobe Reader (free version here) to open them. You can either print them at home (I recommend either fine art paper or photo paper) or send them in to a local printer. The frames I bought to fit these prints can be found here.

Home Decor Favorites

There’s just something about moving that lights my fire for decluttering, and makes me all energized for organizing new spaces. Maybe it’s also a little of that New Year, New Me spirit going around. For now, I’m focusing on getting our main spaces just right - living room, dining room, kitchen, & master bedroom. And I’m loving anything that combines timeless character, a little old world, and modern lines.

I’ve found that displaying a few larger books (8.5x11” is my go-to size) stacked makes for a clean, classic look. Joanna Gaines’s new book Homebody is so excellent to read and flip through, but you’ll also find it’s a beautiful fabric-covered hardback with gold foil printing when you take off the cover. Perfect for decorating with!

I love these vintage frosted glass vases because they’re old-world with clean, modern lines - basically the exact combo of aesthetics we’re going for in the new house.

I am loving this initial block in “S” from Anthropologie for our shelves.

Target has a ton of McGee & Co dupes out right now, and you can’t beat their prices. I snagged a few of their vases for our built-in’s (pretty with or without greens in them).

I’ve been looking high and low for some pretty glass beads and found these for a great price! Just ordered them in a deep blue, and I have a feeling I may go back for bone beads next…

These eucalyptus stems from McGee & Co are only a few dollars more than their counterparts at Target, and they’re also 11” longer.

I’m still on the hunt for pillows that work with our Chesterfield sofas, but in the meantime loving cozy throws over them for that Hygge feel. This one from West Elm is so cute.

Finally, I’m always looking for some cute baskets to store toys and blankets in, and World Market is my current favorite for baskets with great texture and quality for the price. I love this larger banana leaf basket for the living room!

Hope your week is going well - happy decorating, friends!

A Simple New Year’s Day Brunch

I absolutely love having people over, and one of my 2019 resolutions is to open our home up more often to hosting just for the heck of it. You don’t have to have a fancy spread to make it happen, either. I used my stand-by quiche recipe, some grocery store doughnuts, eucalyptus and roses from the floral department (pretty but definitely optional), and a pot of coffee to bring some friends together on New Year’s Day.

All I did was stack some doughnuts on a cake pedestal, and I tucked in roses and greens in the gaps between doughnuts. It was super easy, and took all of five minutes!

Quiche is without a doubt my favorite to make for company because it’s simple, budget-friendly, and always a crowd pleaser. We had broccoli + cheddar and sausage + cheddar variations on my favorite quiche recipe here. I made them the night before, and just warmed them up in the oven before company came.

Anytime I’m at the store and I see a good deal on a white cake pedestal, I grab it. Sometimes Target has little ceramic white ones in their Dollar Spot, and they’re great for layering on larger cake plates. I think a few well-placed pedestals work wonders for making a simple tablescape or buffet look a little fancier, and they don’t have to be super high quality to have that effect.

Our kitchen island is so fun to gather around. I’m already loving all the memories we’ve made this holiday season with friends and family hanging out on barstools in the kitchen.

Coffee was still brewing when I took this picture! I put out our Starbucks collection of “You Are Here” mugs for everyone to use with their homemade lattes, but mismatched mugs are just as home-y and fun.

I put out my own dishes this time since it was a smaller gathering. Jordan and I picked these out for our wedding registry, and had to hunt down quite a few of them at different Anthropologie’s in other states when they went out of stock! But they’re back actually, and I linked them in my Shop the Post below. I love the imperfect look they have - they’re all handmade in Italy which is, of course, the coolest.

Below are some other pieces from the post, including our barstools that I’m obsessed with for family life, dining room furniture/decor, and some pretty pie and cake plates!
