Best of 2014

Happy New Year's Eve friends! I hope your holidays have been beautiful and relaxing. I have been a bit MIA around here, with a busy season at work plus enjoying Christmastime with our family. But it has been a full year here at 12th and White and you all have been so amazing for following along as we spent our first full year in our home, held the 12th and White Vintage Sale and changed up decor for the seasons. Each year I like to share the top five posts of the year, so here goes...

5. A New Milk Paint Buffet

I was lucky enough to have the talented Abbe of All Dolled Up do a custom buffet for our dining space with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint. Not only that, but my photos of the piece were featured in the first MMSMP Look Book, which was such an honor!

I still absolutely love this piece and how it fits into our home!

4. 2014 Holiday Housewalk
You just can't go wrong with Christmas decor! Everyone loves it and this year was no exception! Our house was glowing with twinkly lights, lots of greenery and gold and silver decor all season long!

3. Fall Living and Dining Room
Autumn brought cozy touches, warm tones and lots of nature-inspired decor to the Browning abode.

2. Makeover Round Up: Our House Six Months Later
I shared the progress we made after six months in our home, complete with before and afters of each space we had worked on. I'm hoping for even more makeovers to share in 2015!

1. How to Create an Elegant Home on a Budget: 7 Tips and Tricks

 This post has 50 times the views of any other post on the blog...that still blows me away! : ) I'm so glad my personal experience with budget decorating is helpful to you guys. I always joke that at least others benefit from my mild (or maybe not-so-mild) obsession with decor, furnishings and finding the absolute best price!

Thank you again for following along this year! I am feeling a pull away from doing quite as much blogging as I used to. I think after four years, I'm needing to step back just a bit. As much as I absolutely love it, it's also a lot of work and time to maintain a blog. I'll probably pop in from time to time, but I bet you'll find me much more often on Instagram...I'd love to have you join me!

Happy 2015!


  1. I enjoyed all of those posts, but agree that the Budget Decorating one was the most impactful for me. I'm pretty sure I pinned every photo lol. Lots of great tips and really enjoy your eye for pretty vignettes and textures. Wishing you and your loved ones all the best in the New Year!

  2. I really like the simplicity of the design! I would definitely try this one out, it happens that I am on a Buying and Selling HDB Singapore industry and learning this kind of budget home decorating will be a big help. Of course, this help me to capture the attention of future investors.

  3. There are so many fun and exciting Things to do and experiences around the world that I thought I ‘d put together a list of favorite things to do for all travelers.


Well hello there! You just made my day!
