Holiday home decor, Jana's Top Tips on Style My Pretty Living

I’ve never been one to edit our decor for the seasons, but this year we decided to have a huge holiday party & I wanted our home to relay a festive vibe that invites guests to stay awhile. In tweaking our spaces, I arrived at three top takeaways to get your home holiday-ready without completely overhauling every detail.

Here's my first tip & I'm excited to be sharing all of them over at Style Me Pretty Living today! 

Fresh greenery

Given our homes coastal vibe, I wanted the greenery to be a bit softer. As our local Michigan options are heartier, I took the task to Etsy. In doing so, I sourced this gorgeous (looking and smelling) bay wreath


Then, I’ve always wanted to work with magnolia, and thankfully my go-to florist, at the University Flower Shop, was able to source it for me.


I so enjoy that both the bay wreath, and magnolia branches, are drying now but are still so pretty.

Get the rest of my tips over at Style Me Pretty Living, I hope they resonate with you!

Happy holidays to you & yours!

Front Gate Poolside Refresh

This summer we partnered with Frontgate to refresh our poolside patio and I'm excited to share the transformation with you! 

We’ve enjoyed our Carlisle outdoor furniture for almost ten years. To that end, I must highlight that Frontgate's quality and customer service, is absolutely top notch. The level of detail they consider when crafting their products is evident. From the prints lining up on the cushion ties, to the furniture still looking beautiful after withstanding a decade of Michigan elements, when you purchase FG furniture, you can relax in knowing that the pieces are as durable as they are easy on the eyes. 

So while the pieces themselves were still in fine form, our original yellow and green color scheme was feeling a bit tired. Coupled with the need for new barstools, our outdoor area was begging for a new lease on life!

Here's a look at the before:

To create our outdoor oasis, we went for a classic navy & white resort vibe. I’m so happy with the crisp stripes and in knowing this timeless design will always feel fresh!

Here’s some additional peeks at the transformation:
