What better way to celebrate our first fall weekend than with a makeover giveaway?! I've partnered with two of my local favorites, Springhouse Gardens + Kayla Weber Art to bring you the perfect collection of fall plants + decor for decorating your mantle, porch, or entryway! The winner of the giveaway will also receive custom styling of the items in your home by me! This giveaway includes: 3 mums from Springhouse Gardens; 2 pumpkins from Springhouse Gardens; mini fall painting by Kayla Weber Art; framed vintage equestrian print from Miss Molly Vintage; 3 basket planters from Miss Molly Vintage; vintage lantern + vintage glass bottle from Miss Molly Vintage; and custom styling by Miss Molly Vintage.
My latest focus at the house has been finally finishing up my dressing room! This space was not at all a priority when we first moved in and kind of became a hodge podge of temporary fixtures and furniture. We painted the walls (Art Deco Pink by Behr), put down the new laminate flooring (from Lumber Liquidators), and changed the light fixture during our renovation but besides that, not much decorating had happened in here until recently. You can see more before photos + my original plans for this space here.
The first step in moving forward with this space was finally convincing my husband to help me build these pipe clothing racks. They were definitely not as easy as they looked, but I love the way they turned out and I have more than enough hanging space in here now. I shared some more details on these racks and the assembly in my progress post here.
After finishing the clothing racks, I began choosing some furniture pieces that I actually loved to replace all the leftover random furniture I was using in here. The velvet bench, vanity stool, and glass side table were Homegoods finds and the rug is a $5 steal from an estate sale. I also found this desk that I am using as a vanity at Homegoods and I just spray painted the handles gold so that it would match the rest of the gold finishes in the room. I grabbed lots of acrylic organizers and mini wire baskets at Homegoods too to organize all my makeup inside these giant drawers. The shelves that I have above the vanity are all thrifting finds that I painted gold.
I am using the one open wall without clothing racks for my jewelry and accessory storage. I've used this antique dresser in several different rooms in our old house and I chalk painted it dark navy to use in here (you can find the chalk paint I used here). I placed all my jewelry displays on top of it- these are a mixture of vintage displays and new from Target (linked above). I can also use the drawers of the dresser for more jewelry trays and organizers as well as for jeans, shorts, scarves, etc. I added these beautiful wood + brass shelves from Target for purses above the jewelry table. I love the clean + modern mid-century look of these shelves and the pops of gold. The matching mirrors on each side of the dresser are vintage that I have painted quite a few times over the years, but I repainted them a medium gray for this room.
Another addition to the room is my shoe closet! My husband made custom floating shelves to fill the closet perfectly and I stained the wood dark. I also painted the inside of the closet a dark charcoal gray (with leftover paint from our entryway- Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams). We also switched out the pull-cord closet light for a small industrial look pendant that hangs down slightly above the shelving. I'd love to eventually get a cool old glass door to add to the front of the closet, but for now I will leave it open.
I ran out of shelf space for my hats so I used the blank spots above my vanity to just hang them on hooks! I love the way it looks and it keeps them from ever getting smooshed too!
It feels so good to have one more project done and have such a pretty space to get ready in every day! I even had to add a dog bed in front of the window because Hank and Dixie always want to be in here with me every morning! If you have any questions about fixtures or details I didn't mention, feel free to ask!
I'm super excited about this next design special- perfect for anyone who's stumped on how to decorate and fill in bare walls inside their home! The most popular design dilemma among my clients is just that: bare, empty, and sad walls. Gallery walls are becoming so popular and are a quick fix for a large, empty wall, but many are stumped on how to get started and execute this project. Don't worry, I can whip up a gallery wall collection for you in no time and completely arrange and install it inside your home too! I'm offering this design service for JUST $50* for a limited time and you also get 50% off ALL Miss Molly Vintage prints and wall decor from our shop (*the $50 just covers your design/installation fee and does not include additional items you may want to purchase to build your gallery wall)! We can also mix and match and use items, photos, or wall hangings you may already have, and find the perfect frames for any prints or photos that need them. My favorite part of gallery walls is the ability to make them completely unique and personalized to your home and style! We can also customize your gallery wall to fit perfectly into any space you want, big or small. Check out some of my favorite gallery wall inspirations below as well as my picks from our shop for beginning to build your own gallery wall (remember that ALL these items will be 50% off, when you schedule your gallery wall design appointment!).

There's nothing more exciting than designing a space completely from scratch and surprising one of my clients with the completed look! This client wanted all new holiday decor for her mantle and trusted me completely to put together a design that she would love. I was inspired by the rest of her living room to keep the design simple + modern with lots of neutrals that would seamlessly blend in to the rest of her decor.
I was able to find most of the decorations at my favorite place, Target, which always has the best selection of unique, modern Christmas decor. I love the mix of more rustic materials (woodgrain, fresh greenery, and white-wash) with super glitzy and glam elements (like her starburst mirror, glittered trees, and mirrored snowflake garland). My favorite feature is the super modern layered garland: I topped a fresh pine garland (from Trader Joe's) with two different unique garlands from Target. I chose some simple wool and faux fur stockings too which I tucked into the garland off to one side.
I filled the rest of the mantle with a mixture of different mini trees, a distressed wood wreath, and white-washed deer. I usually play around with these arrangements to try to find the perfect balance on each side. On the ledge below the mantle I placed a gold metal basket filled with a boxwood wreath (also from Trader Joe's), another deer, and small tree off to one side. I love to use baskets on fireplace ledges to help them look less bare. You can fill them a mixture of firewood, blankets, pinecones, or greenery. I also added a few little touches to the shelves beside the fireplace to keep the eye moving across the space (all those items are from Michael's).
I love the neutral color scheme mixed with pops of fresh greenery! The best part is that all of these items are perfect for mixing and matching with so many different color schemes and styles of decor, so she will be able to use them year after year. Stay tuned to see more of my Christmas tree decorating and shelf styling for this same client later next week! In the meantime, you can shop all the items used for this mantle at the end of this post!
