I’ve been looking for a rug for my place for quite some time.  As soon as I find one that I think I like, I find another that I like better… There are just so many to pick from.  I think I have the toughest time picking a style: traditional, modern, or rustic.  I think a room shouldn’t ever be matching. Instead, a room should have a style that more or less “goes together” and it takes me forever to decide what style my space has. However, I have a feeling that my future home {even if it’s the man cave} will have a cowhide rug like the one above!  There’s just something about it I love!


Southern Style:: Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are one of my favorite home decor accents.  It’s a great way to take personal collectibles (whether photos, art, or memorabilia) and turn them into a unique display for all to enjoy.  Here are some of my favorite styled gallery walls from Savvy Southern Style and coco + kelley.  They are the perfect blend of southern, antique/vintage, whimsical, and maybe a hint of french country design influences.

Southern Accents:: Wax Seal


Looking for a way to fancy up your stationary?  Try adding a wax seal!  They’re so simple and classic, yet add a personal touch that can’t be overlooked! I love little additions, like wax stamps, that can take something ordinary and make it unique and personalized!

Some of my favorite places for wax seals:
