I covered old cornices that we already had instead of buying or creating new ones. My overall vision was during a textured grey cornice, tufting it with nickel nailheads, and adding textured drapes in a contrasting color, to give it depth, instead of trying to make it “matchy.” Tufted Cornice DIY - TheSubtleStatement.com #homedecor #diyMeasure the width of your cornice, including each of the sides and add at least 2″ to each side to staple, and determine the amount of yards of fabric you will need. Cover your cornice with the fabric, pulling it tight as you go, and stapling it along the edge to secure it.

Next, measure a straight line around your cornice, making a square, of where you will apply your nailhead trim. Carefully, place the nails and hammer in to secure. Tufted Cornice DIY - TheSubtleStatement.com #homedecor #diy

I bought a basic curtain rod and we installed it underneath the cornice and added contrasting textured curtains.

Heavy Metal

Heavy Metal - Metallic Trend

Shorts | Sweater | Sunnies | Pouch | Wedges | Nail Polish | Sweatshirt | Belt | Sneakers | Sandals | Clutch

I’m all about the full blown metallics for Spring. It makes a great statement piece, to make any ensemble shine. Gold and bronze metallics make chic beach accessories, and silver is such a chic pairing with black & white or a pop of neon.

Weekend DIY: Instant Update {Nightstand}

In need of a pop of color to my mostly neutral bedroom, I updated my nightstand with a few home “accessories.” A decorative candle stacked upon books of inspiration, and a vivid floral arrangement. To add character, I typed out a fun quote and slid into a coordinating frame.

A few minor changes can make a big difference. The new addition has a personal touch and livens up my space.

I bought these shoes for my friend’s wedding and were the most comfortable heels I have worn! The gold and silver combo make them the perfect hybrid for any occasion or ensemble. I love throwing on a statement shoe to transform an outfit of simple staples. And who doesn’t love a little sparkle?

Julep Maven: November

This month’s pick for the Julep Maven program is American Beauty. The set came with colors Stefani and Lynn, and an essential cuticle oil.

 A fun surprise was the nail glitter pots included in the set. How cute is this?

I decided to try this peachy pink pair first.

One of the perks of being a maven is discounted products. I also snagged this goodies. Harley, O’Canada, and a base coat.

Have you joined Julep Maven yet? What colors are your loving?
