I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing weekend now that the hustle of the holidays are behind us and we are hopefully gaining some free time on our days off again.  I spent my weekend out of town with my girls as they danced at a convention, and was also able to get in a little shopping during our down-time.  I visited some local boutiques, an antique mall, and some of my favorite national stores to gain some winter and spring home decor inspiration.  At this time of year, most of us are in the mood to freshen up our homes now that all of the Christmas decor has been put away, and even though my home is feeling a bit bare right now, I am kind of enjoying the fresh feel of a clean slate with everything put away, uncluttered, and feeling somewhat in order.  I did find some really pretty things and ideas as I shopped around that are inspiring me to redecorate certain areas of my home this winter, and really enjoyed this pretty display I found at Pier 1…

The subtle colors and textures of these pieces are so pretty and the dishes can really serve dual purposes of function and decoration in your home.  I like to change up my pretty dishes at different times of the year by displaying them on open shelving, a dining hutch or buffet furniture, with plate holders on my counters or on a side table, or dressing my dining table or bar/ kitchen island area with staged place settings… so many opportunities to take our pretty dishes out of the cabinets, and use them to decorate, fill up, and beautify our spaces.  I linked all of these pretty pieces for you to shop below and on my Jaime Lyn Shop Page… Enjoy!… & keep reading below for a new Design Tip!


Design Tip:

Enjoy freshening up your home with some new pieces this new year that serve both function and decoration, or simply reorganize and rearrange furniture and decorative pieces you already own to new locations within your home, to give it a fresh, new, and updated feel.
I hope you all are enjoying your first week of the New Year!
