Easy Spring Project: Forcing Branches to Bloom

Forcing Branches to Bloom | Satori Design for Living

Ready to perk up your space for spring? I have an easy project for you today… This one requires a little patience, but nothing compared to forcing bulbs. With branches, you’ll start to see changes in days, not weeks. If you have a tree or shrub in your yard that flowers in the spring, that’s all […]

Pretty Spring Decorating Ideas

Spring Tablescape | Dreamy Whites

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day making it feel like Easter is truly around the corner. However, Mother Nature decided to bring back winter today… sigh. That’s the way it goes, right? Thankfully, the days will be getting longer and eventually a whole lot warmer. Until then, there are all kinds of ways to make […]

Ten Minute Project / Crocus Planter

Easy & Inexpensive Spring Crocus Planter Using Bulbs from the Grocery Store.

Although we’ve had a fairly mild winter compared to last year, I can’t help but feel a little hum-drum this time of year. Even if all the snow has melted and it’s warm by February’s standards, I’m craving the beautiful green that comes along with Spring. Branches budding out, bulbs peeking through, birds chirping… it’s […]

Front Porch Decorating: Winter Swag

Winter Swag Outdoor Decorating Project for the Christmas Season

During the Christmas season, I like to keep decorating around our house simple. Aside from our tree and a few tchotchkes, most of our decor is winter-themed rather than Christmas per se. I began this a few years ago when it didn’t feel quite right to start pulling Christmas decor out in early November. However, […]

Lavender Infused Sugar

Lavender Infused Sugar

I started with one tiny lavender plant years ago that has spread into a tiny garden of sorts. Nothing like the beautiful fields of Provence, but my own little pièce de résistance. Until last year, I had only enjoyed the heavenly aroma and beautiful color of these tiny blossoms. Then, I baked lavender shortbread cookies […]

Weathered Bench Container Garden

A couple summers ago, I discovered two weathered benches in an old shed at my parents’ farm that I decided to bring home with me. I managed to paint the larger one a bright yellow color for the Outdoor Extravaganza last year, and it eventually made its way to our front porch. The other smaller sized […]

Lounging Around: Our Outdoor Living Space

Outdoor Living Space with Lounge Area

Last July, we got most of the foundational pieces in place for our outdoor living space. However, when it came time to finish the decorating, most of the outdoor decor was picked over and I had to put the process on hold. This year, I decided to be ahead of the game and started picking […]
