At Home with My 100 Year Old Home

A monthly online magazine featuring the best of the blog

August was a tough month.  It’s was often 100 degrees outside while I was trying to decorate for fall. I struggle with this every year and  this year I decided to   ease into fall decor as gracefully as I could.

So what did I love about August?

I did create mood boards for Fall and the Holidays.  I decided my color theme for fall would be copper and I have  already introduced a few really fun copper ideas. 

 We love to entertain so I planned two dinner parties for our family. One was in the backyard and the other was on the beach in Ventura. Both were amazing and really fun. I also shared an entertaining DIY which is something a few of you  have been waiting over a year to see.

I also teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers for the Makeover in a Month Challenge and spent thirty days redoing our third floor bedroom.  The final reveal is on September 1st.

August was a month for crafts as I  shared five DIYs. I do think a few of these  are my best craft ideas ever.

Makeover in a Month

I thought it might be fun to get together some blogging friends to do a Makeover Challenge. We  all  decided to redo one room during the month of August. I chose to redo our third floor bedroom which to bee honest, needed a lot of work.

So what  did  I do? I painted  the bedroom, added a feature wall, put in new lighting, drapes and  a  rug. I  redid the bookcases and  added  all new furniture from Bed, Bath and Beyond. 

I also made a slipcover and painted an abstract painting. We  are sharing our completed rooms on September 1st. I cannot wait.
