INVENTORY UPDATE | capri blue candles

Well... I just died and went to heaven. Candle heaven! And, I truly believe there is a such a place.

Capri Blue Volcano candles (quite possibly the best scent EVER -- you are a martian if you have never burned one of these in your home) just arrived at J.McIntyre HOME. We have four different sizes all in beautiful mercury glass. 

Remember, when the candle is done, DO NOT THROW AWAY! Use as an accessory in your home for flowers, matches, q-tips, paperclips, whatever your little heart desires. The possibilities are endless! 

Until next week... HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

FESTIVE | give thanks

It's that time of year. Time to gather around a table with people you love and delicious food. Sometimes it's hard to get excited to spend an entire day or a few days with family, but make the most of it. Make this the Thanksgiving that is special and enjoyable. 

This past weekend my friends and I had a potluck Friendsgiving with amazing food, fun music, and lots of laughter. I wanted the table to be casual and fun but still pretty. I made simple flower arrangements that added a lot, but my favorite part was laying out butcher paper and having jars of jumbo crayons for my friends to write down why they were thankful. Everyone loved it. It was interactive, inexpensive, purposeful, funny, and thoughtful. 

What are your family traditions? In the past few years, my family started playing games together at holidays. I am actually looking forward to Thanksgiving because of this. We get to laugh together and have fun. 

I tried an amazing new recipe this past weekend for the same Friendsgiving and it was a huge success. I might have even heard that it changed someone's life. I can't take all the credit, though. I found it on Pinterest. 
PUMPKIN CRISP. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine 15 ounce can of pumpkin,1 cup evaporated milk, 1 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Sprinkle a box cake mix and chopped pecans over top. Pour one cup of melted butter. Bake for 60 minutes and top with whip cream.

Pull out your nicest dishes, buy fresh flowers, and create a special
place for your loved ones to gather.
It's amazing what the little extra touches can add.  

Happy Thanksgiving!

TREND ALERT | gloriously glossy

It's time. Time to break out of your comfort zone. We've had enough semi-gloss. It's time for something richer, something with more depth, something more special. It's time for HIGH GLOSS paint. We're not talking about every room in high gloss. Choose your application wisely. Here are a few ways we like it: 

BEAUTIFUL BACKDROP | a subtle color is taken to a new level

CLEAN AND CLASSIC | this bathroom beadboard is
                                             amazing in high gloss black

TAKE IT TO THE FLOOR | white glossed floors add an
                                             extra element of elegance  

SMALL & SPECIAL |  take advantage of a small space
                            by popping in some gloss 

WOW | that's all 

                                        VERSATILE | glossy isn't just contemporary, 
                                                                it can work in a traditional space, too

JUST A TOUCH | you don't have to paint a whole room,
               gloss up a piece of furniture 

Need some starter pieces to get your glossy going? We love these pieces from one of our favorite vendors: Bungalow 5

DESIGN | bring on the color

Hi Gang, 

Confession: I don't usually start a project with a bold, colorful wallcovering, paint color, or fabric. My instinct is to start with neutrals and layer in some color. BUT, I have been so inspired by all these colors I am seeing. Bright, cheery, refreshing. There is a time and place for color, and I think it's here and now. 

WARM WELCOME | what better way to welcome someone into your home than with color - starting with that high gloss navy door. love.  

LAYERS | okay, so this is neutral with colors added, but look at that bold art!

POP | keep that pop of color going. the headboard is bold, but it's so smart to continue the poppy color in the bedding. it gives a finished look  

A THOUGHT | if colors look good together in nature, then they look good together in your house 

ART | benson cobb is one of our favorite artists. gorgeous colors and soft lines 

Don't be afraid to use color! 
and DON'T FORGET our SALE going on at JMI right now!
