Easy DIY Modern Wall Art Acrylic Paintings

Easy DIY Modern Wall Art Acrylic Paintings

If you like easy, modern and art, than this post is for you!  I've been taking a little time off blogging (not sure you noticed...) and one of the things I enjoyed doing during my break, was painting. Hence, these easy DIY modern wall art acrylic paintings !  I'm no professional artist, but I love creating DIY artwork to display in my home (you can see some here , here   and here ). I think it's far more meaningful than buying art, more pleasurable too and a LOT more affordable! 😉

This year, Christmas may look a more scaled-down and different, but that doesn't mean we can't set up a pretty, cozy table to celebrate and give thanks for all the blessings we have in our lives! Am I right?! 🙏 So, I have opted for quite a relaxed, fuss-free style this year, with lots of natural wood touches to create a modern, neutral farmhouse Christmas tablescape . Hope you enjoy the ideas! 😍

This year, Christmas at ours will be a little more chilled out and relaxed, so my décor will also be a reflection of that. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year, and after a tough year, I don't want to stress over elaborate décor. So I took my inspiration from nature to start the decorating process, with the styling of my mantel in a neutral farmhouse style . The DIY projects for this décor style are also inexpensive and super easy. Again, reflecting the peaceful and natural atmosphere I want to create at home.

DIY Christmas Village Advent Calendar

DIY Christmas Village Advent Calendar

Some of my favorite ways to spend quality time with my kids during the holiday period, is to craft and to bake together. And this year, more than any other, the focus will truly be on family and faith! So rather than share lavish party ideas here on the blog, I've been creating some content that's suppose to nurture those feelings of home, togetherness and of slowing down to focus on what Christmas is truly about. Starting with this tiered DIY Christmas village advent calendar . It's a fun, easy craft project that your can do with the kids, and bring it out year after year as a family keepsake!

Halloween Mantel DIY Modern Decor

This year, Halloween is a little more demure at ours. So, I opted for creating a few decorations that would reflect a "calmer" and more cozy vibe with neutral colors and a more paired-down style. To be honest, I much rather prefer this black and white, clean, modern monochrome vibe than anything too loud anyways!  Not to mention that, (apart from the spider webs) this décor can be re-purposed for the November and Fall months too!

Halloween for my family has always been about the fun costumes, snuggling up on the sofa while watching movies, and eating candy.  So although Halloween may look a little different this year, we'll still just see it as an excuse to snuggle up on the sofa to watch fun movies...and eat lots of candy! 😁 Hence these adorably cute, decorative Halloween throw pillows to make our sofas a little more cozy and a lot more BOO-tiful 👻

I'm a coffee lover and cannot lie! ☕🥰  So naturally, I take so much pleasure in creating a little coffee nook in the studio and changing its decor each season. Especially since we've been spending so much at home lately, a designated coffee bar or coffee station adds such a fun and cozy vibe to any room, especially during the cooler Fall season! Sometimes I like to "go all out", particularly for the Holidays, and add some sweet treats to my coffee bar like the coffee and donuts bar I styled last winter .  But for now, here are some easy DIY crafts that you can replicate to decorate your coffee bar for Fall!

Even though the temps are still pretty hot where I live, Fall is officially here! Inspired by all the pretty autumnal colors around my garden and the local French countryside, I styled a blush tablescape that would be perfect for any celebration you may be hosting this season. Or simply to dress a pretty table for brunch! Since some of us are still homeschooling or working from home, I find that adding little touches of seasonal décor and comfort, not only serve to "dress up" the space we're living in, but also helps to cheer things up a bit!
