My Blue & White Cottage Decor

Hi Everyone! First, let me apologize for my absence here at my Blog! My YouTube channel “Arlynn’s Country Craft Corner” kind of took off on me, so I have turned most of my attention over there; I so love to Blog though, so let’s go with this post. 🙂

We moved into our home over 6 years ago and since then I’ve been searching for a decor genre that I could call my “every-day decor”.  For a long time, one “side” of our home was decorated in a bit of a country sheek sort of way while the other side leaned more toward the primitive country style. I’ve outgrown both styles if I’m honest and I really wanted to find a more grown up, soft, yet, interesting style in which I could add my Seasonal decor without having to recreate the wheel every time we had a Season or Holiday change. The only time that that will not be the case will be for my Christmas decor, I will continue to switch pretty much everything out.  But, for the rest of the year I will be working with this new decor, my “Blue and White Cottage” feeling decor. OH BTW, Chris, my hubby, repainted the entire main level for us last Spring. I wanted a paint color that I could pair with grays as well as with beiges, so we chose “Perfect Greige”. It is a Sherwin Williams color that we had mixed at Home Depot in their best Behr paint with primer. I feel it has warmed our space up and my accents just pop against the new color. I LOVE IT! ANYway, getting back to my new decor I had been collecting accent pieces for months and I already had some vintage pieces that were passed down to me from my grandma. After Christmas I started to switch this house’s decor over to my new vision in earnest. I will show y’all some pictures of what I’ve created here, but, please do take a peek at my Playlist of “Decorate with Me” videos that I shared on my YouTube channel as I worked my way though the entire main level of our home. That playlist can be found here on my “Arlynn’s Country Craft Corner” YouTube Channel: Blue and White Cottage Decor Series

Here are some pictures for you to peruse through so you can see where I’ve gone with my decorating. I am super happy with every single centerpiece, vignette, & room’s decor;

Here is a link for the video where I created this huge burlap wreath (this particular wreath’s tutorial is not in the Playlist that I shared above):

Stacey, my first cousin came to visit me and brought her Cricut along with her, she made that sign and I hung it on a grapevine wreath form and created that big swag to hang on it. This tutorial is not included in that main link for my decor Playlist. But, I will share the wreath tutorial for this creation here:

For the first time in my life in any home that we’ve been fortunate enough to own, I finally have a decor that is coherent and runs throughout the main level of our home. I cannot tell you the feeling of accomplishment that I obtained when I was finally finished. I worked super hard on this, physically and I also worked my creative juices as it was a challenge to be using the same color scheme yet make it look and feel just a little different in each vignette/room.

Thank you all so very much for stopping by here at my blog!  I will share with y’all some “final words” that I say in every video that I put up on my YouTube Channel. Over a year ago, I felt as if these words were given to me from above, honestly guys, I feel like I can almost read these words on a chalkboard in front of me. 🙂 So here goes. I hope that all is well with everyone! For those of you who might be struggling or suffering with a catastrophic illness or chronic pain, I hope that you have someone there with you, taking care of you, helping you get through each day, making the very best out of each day. I hope that there is nothing weighing on your minds or your hearts, pulling your attention away from where it should be or from where you want it to be. I keep you all in my thoughts and prayers every single day and I love y’all to bits, to bits, to bits! So with all of that said,  I’ll just say, until next time, y’all take good, good care! 💗
