Looking for a new twist on your traditional holiday decor? Try bringing a little coastal glam to your season! We’ve taken a cue from Nicola’s stunning Summer Beach Christmas from the Pretty Blog, which was inspired by her childhood holidays near the South African seaside. Using a natural color palette inspired by beautiful sea oysters, she delivers eclectic touches to the home with stunning shells, gorgeous plants and more to tie together an unforgettable yuletide look.

Cost-effective and chic, this seasonal accent delivers an earthy aesthetic with a texture-rich mix of nautical ropes, succulent plants, sea shells and twigs. To provide a simple contrast to the table’s focal point, she chose crisp, white dinnerware for an elegant polish.

Entertaining with Kate: Do-It-Yourself Hobnail & Shabby Chic-Inspired Pumpkins

Kate Landers Halloween Pumpkin Decoration Layla-Grayce Photography: Kate Landers

It’s Kate Landers here again, sharing some inspiration for fall and Halloween celebrations. I absolutely love autumn and the beautiful pumpkins and gourds it yields. I also adore all things “shabby chic” (including Shabby Chic designer Rachel Ashwell) and loved the idea of pairing my style with this season’s décor.

I am here to share two beautiful ways to dress up pumpkins. The first is a white hobnail milk glass look, and the second a shabby chic ruffled look inspired by my dear friends of the former Icing Designs.

These would be fabulous displayed on a hearth, mantle or tabletop centerpieces for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. I also love them as decorations for a fall bridal or baby shower, wedding or a little girl’s autumn first birthday.

Supplies Needed:

  • ~ 4″ and 8″ crafting pumpkins (I used ivory ones from Target)
  • ~ White flat-finish spray paint such as this one
  • ~ White upholstery pins (approx. 150 to make 1 large & 1 small pumpkin) like these.
  • ~ Needle, white thread, scissors and 1 yard white muslin fabric
  • ~ Lo-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • ~ Black paper bat decorations (optional) from Martha Stewart found here

Instructions: White Hobnail-inspired Pumpkins

1. Insert white upholstery pins into pumpkins in vertical lines, each pin approximately 1/3″-1/2″ apart. For 8″ pumpkin, each row should be 1.5″-2″ apart. For 4″ pumpkin, each row should be 3/5″-1″ apart. There is no exact formula to this; these are basic guidelines, so do what feels best to you!

2. In a well-ventilated area, coat pumpkins (pins already inserted) with white spray paint. Allow to dry minimum 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Instructions: White Ruffled Pumpkins

1. In a well-ventilated area, coat pumpkins with white spray paint. Allow to dry completely, preferably overnight.

2. Fold yard of white muslin fabric in half (this yardage includes extra fabric if you want your ruffles wider or fuller).

3. Cut fabric into eight 1″ strips (fabric is folded over so there will be two strips one on top of the other, total 16 strips) for small pumpkin, and ten 1.5″ strips for large pumpkin (again fabric folded over, so there will be one strip on top of the other, total 20 strips).

4. With a simple needle and white thread, use a simple stitch (thread knotted at end opposite of needle) and thread needle through center of strips (having the two strips on top of one another creates a fuller ruffle), each stitch close together for tighter ruffles. After approximately 15 stitches, you can push fabric down thread and see it gather. Continue until you reach end of the strip and push down fabric so it all gathers. I recommend approximately 12″ gathered length of strip for large pumpkins, and 8″ for small pumpkins.

5. After you hold up your ruffled strips of fabric to the dried painted pumpkin to confirm proper length (you can elongate by making ruffles further apart or make shorter by scrunching ruffles closer together), knot thread at end so ruffle length stays in place.

6. Warm up glue gun, and carefully glue ruffled fabric strips onto each pumpkin, top to bottom, one at a time.

Enjoy your pumpkins!

Emmy Fashion for the Home!

Last Sunday we tuned into the 65th annual Emmy Awards and as we expected, the small-screen sirens brought some serious style this year! Although there were several stunners, we managed to narrow it down to three leading ladies. Here we show you how to translate their winning looks into award-winning decor!

Kerry Washington Emmy Fashion from LaylaGrayce
Kerry Washington 1. Aidan Gray Pillow O No. 2 Flax 2. Aidan Gray Pillow French Scroll No. 4 Ballet Pink 3. Southport Sage Green Wrought Iron Chandelier 4. Zentique Furniture Medallion Dining Chair Natural Linen 5. Demilune Buffet in Mushroom

Kerry Washington was recently named “World’s Most Stylish Woman” and for good reason! She looked positively radiant in her blush-toned Grecian gown from Marchesa. The breezy chiffon was sprinkled with rose blooms for a look of pure romance. This is a perfect palette to emulate in a boudoir. Think French vintage, a la Zentique Furniture’s Medallion Dining Chair in Natural Linen, and soft hues like ballet pink and washed sage. We love the elegant charm of all things Aiden Gray, and their French Scroll No. 4 Ballet Pink Pillow is key to nailing this look. What would a romantic retreat be without a gorgeous chandelier? Our Southport Sage Green Wrought Iron Chandelier perfectly mimics the floral motif of Kerry’s dress and will be a simply sweet finishing tough in your space.

Julianna Margulies Emmy Fashion from LaylaGrayce
Julianna Margulies 1. Barbara Cosgrove Laurel Wreath Table Lamp 2. Thomas Paul Zinnia Ebony Cream Tufted Wool Pile Rug 3. Bungalow 5 Jacqui Three Drawer Side Table Black 4. COCOCOZY Oxford Black Embroidered Pillow 5. COCOCOZY Loop Black Embroidered Pillow

Black and white will always be a classic combination in both fashion and interiors. So it’s no surprise Julianna Margulies turned to this fool-proof pairing for her big night out. With clean lines and a graphic floral, her dress has given this combo a modern lift! To bring this look home, try furnishings in sleek black lacquered finishes. We love the lines of the Bungalow 5 Jacqui Three Drawer Side Table and the gold pulls pack an extra punch of style. To tie in a graphic element, we recommend the Thomas Paul Zinnia Ebony Cream Tufted Wool Pile Rug. The over-sized print is a polished take on mod 60′s style, which we can never get enough of! Complete your look with a classic geometric print like our COCOCOZY Oxford Black Embroidered Pillow. Remember, whenever in doubt, stick to the basics and give them a little make-over for a fresh, updated look.

Allison Williams 1. Worlds Away Wesley Gold Floor Lamp 2. Lili Alessandra Onasis Linen White & Navy Decorative Pillow 3. Lili Alessandra Lili Linen Navy Decorative Pillow 4. Barclay Butera for Mirror Image Home Madison Mirror 5. Worlds Away Emma Navy Dresser

Newcomer Allison Williams has been turning heads wherever she goes and the red carpet is no exception. The brunette beauty wow’ed in a royal blue strapless gown from Ralph Lauren. She balanced the radiant hue with vintage gold cuffs and kept the rest simple. Take a cue from Allison and try our Worlds Away Emma Navy Dresser. The color is bold enough to make a statement, yet versatile enough to withstand the test of time. Like our muse, there is something regal about the design of Lili Alessandra Onasis Linen Navy Decorative Pillow. Complement your royal space with gold-leafed accents. We are especially taken by the Barclay Butera for Mirror Image Home Madison Mirror who’s Greek key design is the ultimate finishing touch to your design fit for a queen.
