New Year’s Eve Bringing in 2017

Tonight we’re saying good bye to 2016 and Ringing in 2017 …. Are you having a party, Hosting friends , heading to a big shindig or staying at home watching the Ball drop?  Any way you choose to celebrate I hope your New year brings you blessings, love, dreams achieved and a healthy 2017.

Here’s a little peek into our Space, My Hubby built our Bar for my Birthday last year and I really do need to do a post just about it! I love to entertain and it has brought us much enjoyment. This is where we spend or Sunday’s With family and friends❤️

For Tonight We are still deciding if we’re heading to our close Family friends for a party or staying home and chilling… We’ve had a crazy season in Retail and our Boys are not feeling so hot ( one has a concussion from a ski accident….. And the other caught my nephews cold over Christmas) so we’ll see what their wanting to do. We always spend New Years with our boys and lucky to have Friends that love to throw Family parties not just adults so tonight our plans our up to our boys….So your Thinking Why is our bar decorated? Well if you know me you know I love a chance to decorate & I found some cute New things this year & mixed with some old Things, I think I came up with a cute New Years Eve display to celebrate 2017 No matter what we decide to do🎉🍾

View of our Bar room, set up for Bringing in the New Year.

Every closet should have a little Black dress  this one I purchased at Nordstrom over the summer just to have on hand

if I was ever in need of a cocktail dress.

Perfect little black dress & accessories
Accessories statement Bracelet , Rhinstone earring's and Yves St Lauren lipstick
Cocktail dress by Adrianna Papell @ Nordstrom

With out knowing our plans for this evening I put together some outfit choice’s just in case… A girl needs opptions  and I like to be ready 😘 I really do suggest having a couple of little black dresses and some fancy not practical shoes in your closet, you never know when you might need! As for the shoes this could be cute on a date night with Jeans and a tee with a leather jacket…. Or in the summer with shorts and a tank❤️ Always thinking ahead….  I consider  this one of the basic’s Every girl should own. I post a couple days ago some cute top options that would be cute with leather pants and heels for a festive look with out being so dressy.   So do your self a favor and be on the look out for both…. I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek into our Home & my closet.

No matter what your doing to ring in the New Year I hope you look smashing and  Make it a Great and festive night! Be safe and responsible ❤️D’Arcy

Getting ready for New Years Eve ….Nails, Champagne & clothes

New Year’s Eve nail and Diy Glitter Champagne bottle


Sparkle and Glitz

2016 is coming to an end….  Later this week All post My 2016  resolutions and how it turned out

( It was the first year I made any Resolution’s)  As we get closer to New Years Eve I thought I would share a couple things I did to get ready for the night. First thing was I had my cute nail girl do my nails In a fun champagne toast theme… I hadn’t decided what I was wearing so we went with a mix of  things. Red on 3, 1 white with rose gold & silver  glitter over white and a black nail with a hand painted silver flute….. Now I can pick any outfit and it will work knowing my festive clothes are All in those tones….

2nd was to create a DIY project with a bottle of Champagne ….. Everything looks better with glitter 💕 You’ll need a bottle, mod podge,  a brush and glitter of your choice ( I did gold , rose gold and silver)  spray sealer .   cover bottle in mod podge roll or sprinkle fitter on and let dry… Repeat if layering color’s , let dry  then spray with sealant or cover with mod podge again let dry… Voilà a pretty Bottle for your New Years festivities 🎉🍾

3rd.  Finding a festive outfit in your closet…. Funny thing, I went into my closet and pulled all my sparkle or festive tops, any thing with beading, sequins or flash…. It all happened to be in the same blush, gold, white, cream family…. I am drawn to sparkles, beading and metallic so I had a few good choices to pick from out of my years of collecting. TIP it’s good to save classic dressy pieces.  I was only pulling tops or vest to see what I could come up with. I found some cute items that would go perfectly  with Black leather pants and heals…. Add some fun accessories and your set. Knowing  we are probably going to a house party , Where you want to look festive but not over dressed. ( we were invited to a black tie cocktail party as well and will show that outfit tomorrow)  hope you find inspiration in this post and can dig up some great treasures in your closet.

Happy Last week of 2016 ❤️D’Arcy

Winter Bedding to cozy up the Master Bedroom

Winter bedding black and white demask with Stripe , finished with Fur pillow's and A Minky Couture blanket.

Changing of the season….As the Days get shorter and Night’s get Colder , Our Master Bedroom gets cozier❤️  Do you change your Bedding seasonally?  Add More Blankets or completely change your look?   I love the opportunity for change, add layers and give our room a NEW look..

To get our look I change out the curtain’s  from the light summer lace to the raw Lined Silk drape’s ( pottery barn )  The heavier Curtain also helps keep the heat in.  I add Rug’s to each side of the Bed to add texture and warmth ( Tgmax)  Our Bedding set I purchase a couple years ago  I saw on Pintrest from Macy’s. The comforter is thicker then our (Summer bedding duvet from anthropology ) and reversible, for yet another option . The Set included a comforter , dust ruffle, 2 pillow shams . I added on the European Chevron Pillow….because I am pillow obsessed ( I am always buying pillows) I purchased the 2 fur pillows and the sequined deer from Homegoods at different times. I do find it easy to change out pillows when I get board or need a new look… Hence a reason I am alway purchasing NEW ones. I am lucky I have a great storage room to store all my props and interior Season decor items.  I Am in love with the Over sized dust ruffle that flares out of t he sides of the bed. It just adds that special touch!   Black and white is just a classic  color scheme that  works with our Grey walls ( Bengamin Moore) And easy to accent with any other pop of color if you wish. I love adding a pop of light pink around Valentine’s Day 💕 Another way I add a touch of warmth and luxury for the cooler months is a fur blanket our families favorite ( Minky couture) Looks beautiful thrown on the bed and cozy warm to snuggle up with.  The last detail is I add a spruce Wreath around a glittered dear head above our headboard. ( growing up in California we had earthquakes, you don’t put Heavy object above your sleeping head!)

I often get asked about my choice for night stands…..I am not a fan of Matchy Matchy bedroom sets… Yes my dressers match our bed but to add a special touch I got two differnt desk and painted both of them in silver spray paint and topped with mirror to give them a chic look and I love having the space a desk has to offer over a small night stand. Thinking out of the Box to create a space that works for you:)

Hope you enjoyed your little Bedroom tour:) and inspired you to add winter warmth to your room.

Nightstand Favorites

My Nightstand FAVORITES!!!
Lately I have been seeming snap shots of people’s nightstands… On pintrest, blogs and Instagram.
Which had me take a look at mine.
I have kept the same 3 things on Every night stand I have owned over the years…my favorite nightstand must haves
…Fresh flowers, (lately it’s been roses) in my favorite vintage mercury glass vase.
…My favorite lotion MILK by Archipelago,
…A drink..mornings it’s hot tea or coffee and nights it’s Water.
These 3 things no matter what are always sitting on my table.
Yes I have other treasures, candle, lipbalm, magazines or a book, photo’s and other odds and ends, but as I looked back over time these are 3 of the things that have stayed the same.
Think about your favorite nightstand items…have they stayed the same or changed over the years??
