Best of November and What’s to Come!

Happy December friends!  Are y’all getting excited for the holidays?  I can’t believe Christmas is only 24 days away.  We had a wonderful time in Tokyo enjoying Disneyland, Disney Sea, and downtown.  I think my favorite part was the cooler weather!  It was a great way to finish the month and I’m so thankful that we are building awesome memories for our kiddos.  I would love to hear what you’ve been up to?

November was a great month for Up to Date Interiors.  A lot of it had to do with purchasing a new computer! Whoop whoop!   In case you missed some of the happenings around here, here’s a recap.

Our Chinese eterge that we found out here finally received some styling love.  It’s such a neat piece of furniture and balances out our bedroom nicely.  While I was at it,  I wrote tips on styling two different bedside tables with a cohesive feminine and masculine feel.  You can find it HERE.bedroom-hisandhers-pinterestSONY DSC


Most of the house was “KonMari”ed this summer and so far has been a good success.  I shared the process last month on our master bedroom clothes and the kids’ entire rooms.

I was big on repurposing and recycling DIYs last month.  With limited resources, I worked with what what we brought with us across seas and a few other inexpensive supplies.  Check out these easy Christmas/Winter projects.

Oh!  Apartment Therapy also featured my house call.  Super exciting.  You can read about it HERE.  (There’s something even bigger coming soon!)


I’m starting off December with a Christmas Home Tour tomorrow.  It is part of the 2015 Holiday Home Tour Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Practical Home.  The tours started yesterday, so have fun enjoying the ones that are already live! holiday-home-tour
