My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Today is quite a busy day friends, I have not just one…but two posts for you guys! You can see the details on the second post at the bottom of this one, trust me you don’t want to miss it!

Shall we begin with my first post….

My friend Stefanie from Brooklyn Limestone put together a fun and simple holiday series to share pretty gift wrapping ideas. Including our lovely host, there are fourteen of us all together, you can see everyone’s #prettypackages over on Stefanie’s blog. Below is mine, plus a few of my favorites.


Wallpaper Wrapped Present #PrettyPackages

I love wrapping gifts with unique paper ideas, and this one is no exception. Would you believe me if I told you this pretty package is wrapped in paintable wallpaper? So you can leave it as is since the texture is already amazing, or give it a fun pop of color to wrap your gift in!


Next, give your wrapped gift some layers with pretty holiday ribbon and a piece of pinecone garland.


Again, how gorgeous is the texture on this wallpaper, it’s the perfect print for the holiday season! You can find everything I used to make this gift a pretty package over at Lowe’s.

I hope my DIY gift wrapping idea sparks a little holiday inspiration into your day.  For more ideas check out a few of my favorites below and see all 14 pretty packages on Brooklyn Limestone.
