Recap 2012: Favorite Decor Projects

Celebrating well at home is something I’ve worked on my entire adult life. Festive home decor is a major area where you will see A Subtle Revelry grow in 2013. I have many projects, series, and ideas waiting to be shared! In the meantime, here are my favorites for the home from 2012.

Simple and spectacular; these gold frosted bowls will center any table of a home in a glittery, festive style.

The faux cut glass lanterns are a great example of making simple updates for a more stylish space (even outdoors).

I was over the moon to share this gorgeous paper floral candleabra that Brittany created for us. It will immediately brighten up a shelf at home.

DIY concrete Candles were a favorite project last spring. I’m still dying to make them in a huge mass. It would be an affordable way to make a powerful design statement.

These custom fabric vases with download fabric pattern will bring your mismatched vases back to life.

A DIY table top grill that I still use and love – for small patios and intimate meals at home.

In March I recovered my sofa in a pretty avocado and we had a little house tour over at Design Sponge. Funny note: right after the tour, I changed so many of the pieces in my house and ended up with a much quieter space.

This fabric tape DIY project is great for brightening up the office or holding up a wall of flowers.

In early summer, I took the embroidery trend and a drill bit to update our patio table.

Then we built an ice cream cart and had a blast BBQing at home with good friends.

We spent time this summer building an a-frame tent to picnic under at sunset.

I made a big heart out of confetti for the wall above our little desk.

I also updated our family photo wall with the awesome new photo wall decals from our long time sponsor Pinhole Press.

We ended the year on a simple note with these easy DIY paper lanterns. They are a simple and pretty instillation to make this winter.

      Gloria, I know right! The project takes a couple hours work, but is so worth it to brighten up before spring!
