My Perfectly Imperfect Home Tour

Good Morning!

Remember how I told you I was going to be more open about my life with you this year?

Well…today is one of those open days.

For. Sure.

When you are a single thirty-something {or twenty-something in my sister’s case} sometimes life or work gets in the way…and you don’t always have time to make your bed in the morning, put your clothes away, or sort through a stack of bills and junk mail. Sometimes it’s much easier to let those things go and sit down to watch an episode of the Real Housewives instead.

{Even if you’ve already seen that same episode 10 times.}

Although we try our hardest to keep the Purple Palace clean we are only human. So today we are going behind-the-scenes for a glimpse of what our home {gasp!} sometimes looks like.

Welcome to my Perfectly Imperfect Home Tour!

Christmas Home Tour


One of my favorite things to look at on blogs are the home tours. And if it’s a Christmas home tour…well that’s just icing on the cake!

Today I’m thrilled to be joining 30+ bloggers for the Very Merry Christmas Home Tour hosted by Carrie from Lovely Etc.

Halloween Home Tour


Halloween Home Tour

Good Morning!

One thing you might not know about me is that I am a big scaredy-cat.

Like huge. No joke.

So it seems weird that during Halloween I love decorating with spooky, slightly gothic décor.

I think it’s because purple and black just go so well together…and if something scary is decked out in glitter it makes it less scary, right!?

I’ll let you be the judge 🙂

Welcome to the Purple Palace’s Halloween Home Tour!

Decorating with Branches


Decorating with Branches

Good Morning!

One home décor trend I really wanted to add to the Purple Palace this Fall were deer antlers.

They are so simple and chic.

But the problem is deer antlers are expensive! And I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t justify spending $40 on the super cute pair of antlers I found at Hobby Lobby.

Sorry Hobby Lobby, but even my 40% off coupon isn’t going to cut it this time around.

I have noticed some really cool branch décor on Pinterest lately and figured I could find some branches that resembled deer antlers instead.

Christmas in July

Merry Christmas!

Christmas in July that is.

I know you are probably thinking I’m crazy for celebrating Christmas in July…I really don’t, but I still get super excited thinking about Christmas…who doesn’t!?

I could show you pictures of our 4 (yes 4) Christmas trees, how we make the best Christmas cookies EVER or how I wrap presents….but I have to save something for December!

Instead I’d like to tell you a little bit more about a Christmas tradition we started a few years ago.

I’m sure you are familiar with this guy…
