Welcome back to the Best of 2015 week here at D&T!  Yesterday I shared my top DIY Projects from 2015, and today I wanted to recap my favorite posts that focus on styling, home tours, and a few miscellaneous posts too.

I began the year shopping the house and changing things around for my Winter Living Room.  Even though it looked bleak outside, there was no shortage of color inside.  As I pack away the Christmas decorations today, I'm ready to get past the mess and back to the pretty!

This Easter Table was one of my all time favorites... how could it not be with blue, white, kelly green, and gold?

And if you need a fantastic recipe to fill up those plates for Easter Brunch, try this Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche.  It's one of my favorites for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

As the trees outside are currently coated with ice, I'm kind of wishing it was time for another Summer Home Tour right about now!

We took a family road trip to the West Coast over the summer, and I immediately fell in love with the houses along the shore as we took a whale watching tour.  I shared a Newport Beach Homes Tour with all of my favorites.

I compiled my Top 5 Styling Tips-

Hands down, my second hand find of the year was this Brass Coffee Table. She's the star of the show in any photo!

It may not look like much, but the deliciousness of this Crescent Roll Lasagna will win you over in a hurry (and you can make it in a flash!).

With some pillow and accessory swaps, I shared my early Fall Home Tour.

I was adventurous and put together 2 Thanksgiving tables this year, both with a gingham tablecloth as the base.  Rustic vs. Glam... what's your pick?

More styling tips, this one specifically with styling for a photo shoot in mind, but there are still some practical everyday tips too.

After a few years of putting off the purchase, I finally selected a new sofa from Scout & Nimble. It holds tons of fun pillows (a good criteria to use when sofa shopping, wink wink), which are on the floor most of the time because we're loving lounging on our comfy new furniture!

We wrapped up the year with Christmas Tours, Part 1-

and Part 2.

It always amazes me to look back over a year and see how much has changed from January to December, and makes me excited to think what the year ahead has in store!

  1. I just want you to know that your blog is one of a few that really inspire me, Jennifer. I am also looking forward to seeing what will unfold in 2016. Happy New Year to you!

  2. Jennifer, thanks so much for sharing your inspiration with us. Your home is lovely! Can you tell me what the name of the navy toille/chinoiserie fabric is on the pillow on your new couch? It's beautiful! Thanks.

    1. Hi Miriam, So sorry, but I can't! It was a drapery panel that I picked up at a thrift store and made into the pillows. I've since learned that it's vintage fabric made by Markwood, but that's all I know. With they still made it, it's fabulous!

    2. And, it's actually black if you happen to search for it, that might help ;)

  3. Did you paint the green china caninet and the green tray? If so, what color is that? I love your style and colors!!!

    1. Yes! The china cabinet is Pine Scent by Behr (Home Depot), and the tray is Meadow Green spraypaint by Rustoleum. Thank you!

  4. These were all fabulous posts. I love seeing what you are up to next, you have such a fabulous creative mind.

  5. 2016, congratulations! !
    We will bless that visit your great year.

  6. I love the choice of pillows you always have on your couch- So pretty!!!
