I am lucky enough to share my time between 2 houses in sweet home Alabama,

 

coastal-pumpkins

 

One house is formal,

and one house is rather funky

I get to play in two very different worlds…

Twice the work but twice the fun!

Let’s start in the city

Black & white is the base of my holiday decor this year, with cotton bolls and magnolia leaves

Nothing says Southern better than cotton and magnolia

Things are more casual in the kitchen

With more black & white, and a bounty of vegetables on the island

Ready for transforming into an array of fall dishes

Let’s head to the coast now, where the colors are brighter and things are more relaxed

My favorite color turquoise is the base for decor here

Did you know turquoise is sorta the new black, it goes with everything!

Turquoise is fabulous with orange pumpkins and fall colors

 

pilgrims-indians

 

The pilgrims arrived by boat,  speed boat that is!

 

autumn-buffet

 

The kitchen island is a perpetual buffet, a collage of dishes, “ready to grab snacks” in jars, and pops seasonal decor

And lots of twinkling lights

It’s a crazy happy place!

But I do love to return to a more sophisticated style

And  I always count my blessings

    Jenna, I love seeing your two distinct styles of decorating and celebrating the holidays! The black and white is so classic and pretty paired with magnolia and cotton and silver accents from your mercury glass pumpkin and table accessories. I’ve noticed turquoise everywhere this fall paired with pumpkins. It’s the perfect color for your coastal home no matter what the season is. I had to chuckle at “the pilgrims arrived by speed boat” 🙂

    Jenna- I love everything and you have just described a dream of mine- two houses, two looks. I am a great fan of traditional decor with a little funk thrown in and I agree wholeheartedly- turquoise is the new black.
    Thank you for joining our Thanksgiving Vignette tour this week.
    I am delighted you did.

  3. Jenna, I LOVE this! “I get to play in two very different worlds” – indeed, much to be thankful for, and sounds like a dream come true. I also love the line, “the kitchen island is a perpetual buffet”. That speaks volumes for your love of home and family! Have a great weekend.

  4. Oh my goodness, the city mouse and the beach mouse. I loved this! The black and white with fancy touches is gorgeous. The beach table couldn’t be more fun. I’m in love with the brussel sprouts!

    Thank you for joining us. 🙂

  6. Jenna your tour is “twice as nice”! You have decorated each of your homes so beautifully. I have to admit that the turkey made of gourds has truly captured my heart. So, so clever. Thank you SO very much for creating such wonderful vignettes for the tour.

  7. Jenna, I love both homes, two different styles allows so much creativity! Your MC is always so perfect and you are right, what is more Southern than cotton and magnolia. The beach house is always so fun, and your Thanksgiving vignettes are so creative! Have a great weekend and Roll Tide!

  8. Jenna, not everyone could pull this off, creating such loveliness times two! You have so much talent you need at least two houses. I love the formal and the funky at the beach and how different they are. Coming to visit you I always come away with inspiration. Enjoy the weekend………..

    • Oh Emily, thank you so much, I love to hear that I have inspired! I am so lucky to have these playgrounds and a family, especially my husband, that tolerates perpetual change 🙂 Happy weekend and enjoy this lovely weather!

  9. You are amazing! I could stay on this post for an hour taking it all in. Both houses have personality and great design. You are right about aqua going with everything and I had not thought of that really. Love you MC pieces and your buffet spread. Brussels sprouts from the vine are distinctly more tasty.
    Magnolia and cotton are indeed so southern!
    All your vignettes display your creative style.

  10. I love how you have two spaces to play with! And I love the looks of both of them for different reasons — they appeal to both my whimsical, relaxed side and my love the elegance side! And I still think those sprouts make the best table runner and I’m co-opting Rick’s for Thanksgiving!

    Wow, how fun to do both houses! I have seen the cotton everywhere, and this is really fun putting it with the silver. Yes, turquoise is gorgeous and you have such fun oranges to go with the turquoise. What a delight!

  20. Oh, they are indeed opposite ends of the spectrum, but I love them both too. The cotton and magnolia leaves are so classically southern and perfect for Fall. However, the whimsy and splashes of turquoise at the beach house is more like my style. You have such a great eye and talent. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Jenna, would you come to my house and help me get ready for Thanksgiving or maybe Christmas? As soon as we got back from Sicily we hit the road to Houston. My head is spinning, but maybe when we get there I can settle down enough to think about what comes next. As always, I love seeing your creative expression.
