Merry Christmas from The House of Figs

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, from our family to yours…

In lieu of Christmas cards this year, Paul made a fun video of our tree cutting and decorating… be sure to watch all the way to the end.  Those crazy kids were so hyped up on Christmas cheer and at that point, I told them to take it outside, haha!

The other videos he’s made for this site can be found here.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Let’s Style Some Shelves- a Video

Shelf Styling :: The House of Figs

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and with all the things I’m thankful for, this year one of them is YOU!  I had no idea what this would turn into for me when I started this blog back in February and I’m so thankful to all of you for reading, subscribing, commenting, and just for all the encouragement along the way.

Today I’ve got an exclusive new video all about styling shelves.  My talented cinematographer husband produced it and I am really so excited with how it turned out.  I hope it will be something useful and fun for you and even if you don’t have time to change up any shelves while you’re prepping for your big dinner tomorrow, maybe it will be some inspiration for after the big day.

You can access the video by clicking here or at any time from the Video Tutorials link in the top menu. The video is for subscribers only so you will have to put in your email address to log in if you’re a subscriber or to sign up if you’re not.  You’ll find my other two videos about hanging a gallery wall there as well. It’s totally free and just means you will receive blog posts directly to your inbox.  No spam, just free and fun content that I hope will be both purposeful and beautiful for you.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Weekend Reading: Favorites From Around the Web

Happy Friday!  Will you be Christmas decorating this weekend or do you wait until after Thanksgiving?  We are strict waiters around here because we love to cut down a fresh tree either the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving. I also start to feel a little crazy when the Christmas decor has been out for too long so in order for it to keep some of its magic I wait.  Anyone else get overstimulated by the extra stuff in your house or is that just me?

So since I’m not preparing for Christmas decorating, I’m doing some weekend reading and catching up with some of my favorite blogs.  I thought I’d share with you a few of my recent finds…

First off…

We Are More Than the Worst Thing We’ve Done by Jamie Ivey

Jamie Ivey

Next, The Nester made a video about sofa styling!  She talks about pattern and texture and how your throw and your pillows and your couch are like three friends working together.  Love it. Check out her post and cute video here.

Style a Sofa You Hate

Oh and speaking of Christmas, have you seen this video from Ikea (of all places??)?  A good reminder as we enter this season.  Warning, get your tissues out for this one!

Do you read Design Mom?  She does these wonderful Living with Kids home features and her latest one is one of my favorites.  Aside from having a beautiful home, the family featured also has a greenhouse that their kids use for painting and art. What an amazing spot to allow for creativity and not have to worry about cleaning up the mess!  Find the rest of the tour here.


Lastly, I am just in love with this window seat and built-in reveal by Brit over at House Updated.  Check out her post here that gives lots more pictures and all the details of this beautiful space in her living room.  While you’re at it check out the rest of her blog, too, she’s got some great stuff happening!

That’s it for now.  Whether you’re Christmas decorating or not this weekend, I hope you have a great one!

New Video Up Today!

Gallery Wall Video Part 2 :: The House of Figs

I’ve got a new video up today!  You can find the link here.  I am also keeping an archive page now of all the videos we make that you can access in the top menu.  If you are not a subscriber, you will be asked to sign in with your email address.  All this does is sign you up to receive my blog posts in your inbox and it will give you access to these free videos.  No spam or anything like that ever!

Also just a quick little thank you to your response on my last post.  Thanks to those of you who commented and shared it- its just a little thing, but wow it means so much to me.  I know it might seem like I know what I’m doing or like I’m so confident here just hitting “publish” on these posts but that one sat in my drafts folder for quite a while.  It was re-written, prayed over, and there were a few nights when I thought I just might not ever hit publish on that thing.  To know that so many of you needed to hear it just like I did was big for me.  So thanks, from the bottom of my heart.

Would love for you to subscribe and check out the new video. Have a great week!
