DLAG: Rory's Birthday Parties

 I love this dollhouse and the fact that it is never actually used as a plaything anymore, but for decoration. Here it is in a bedroom, where it works great with the decor, but later Lorelei puts it in her living room, where it works just as well. A great way to display a meaningful piece of childhood, although personally I would put it in a girl's bedroom.
This white wrought-iron shelf is perfect for storing plants on the porch and that is exactly how I would use it.

DLAG: Kill Me Now

I love this pale sage green wicker patio set. And it goes perfectly in the corner of a wrap-around porch, as seen here. I also like that Lorelei uses a lantern on top of it.

Decorate Like a Gilmore: Pilot

New segment for the blog is starting today: Decorate Like a Gilmore. I will be sharing the best home and business decor ideas inspired by the show. There won't be a post from every episode because the decor doesn't change every episode but there will still be plenty of ideas!

So let's get started.

This is one of my all-time favorite decor ideas from the show: the classic Luke's mug shelf. This could be an easy DIY. Just nail together a couple of two by fours, paint a cute color, and hang on the wall to display mugs or some other collection.

Another iconic piece is the Gilmore mailbox. Very rustic with that small town charm. For this DIY, I would take a regular mailbox, stencil on your last name, then distress it a bit.

This is one of the few elements that you can't DIY, but I love Lorelei's living room. From the built in shelves in the corner to the brick fireplace with that mantle. Very quaint!
