Summer is almost here, and we’re ready for it with these bright and colorful picks that have made their way onto the web just in time for June!

These friendship hoop earrings from PS I Made This go great with summer basics, like a black maxi dress.

As of late, we’ve been seeing a lot of beautiful statement stud earrings. And why not? They’re dainty, small, and can be worn without being too distracting. While we’re huge fans of these tiny ear gems, we’d also like to give a shout out to their longer and more flashy counterparts. The beautiful earrings below are some of our favorite dangling “drop” earrings. We love these types of earrings because not only do they provide extra bling, but they also seem to dance when you move, a feature that is found in almost no other jewelry!
What are your favorite types of earrings? If you prefer the stud, would you be willing to give the drops a try?

We don’t know about you, but to us libraries and books have an elegant charm that Kindles just can’t touch. (No offense.) Curling up in a corner with a good book is the ultimate stay-at-home activity for a chilly winter night, and having a beautiful library to hide away in is even better! Check out our library inspiration that will make you feel smarter and more stylish just by looking at it.
We love the eclectic mix of modern and vintage in this library/work space. And those arched shelves are amazing!
Sometimes chaos can be totally called for. A stack of books can easily become a tiny table for a cup of tea or coffee!
Does anyone remember Reading Rainbow? Well check out this literal iteration! Books organized by color look so cool, and we don’t want this trend dying out any time soon. Your plethora of books can easily become a work of art!
There’s nothing like a bold pop of color to really brighten a room. This fuchsia bookshelf would get anyone excited to read!

Even though Halloween is over, the party is just beginning! If you’re planning a party for this holiday season, here are a few tablescapes that are perfect for fall!
This is an unexpected color palette for fall, but the addition of the metallic pumpkins brings the theme back to autumn. Despite the plethora of pumpkins, the selective colors keep the table from looking too busy.
Small details can take your party from ho hum to HOLY COW! Case in point: the gold-dipped stemware. It’s a simple touch that really elevates the tablescape.
You know that rule about not playing with your food? We’re giving you a pass to break it. Use winter cabbage, kale, and pumpkins to create a festive centerpiece that’s almost good enough to eat! Warning: There’s a slight chance that your guests may start chowing down on your beautiful centerpiece thinking it’s a winter salad.
If It Ain’t Broke
This table is perfect for a traditional autumn party. The rich burgundy and orange colors are classics for the cooler months.
The bright colors give this table a modern twist! Traditional florals get punched up with the addition of the blue tablecloth, and the wooden-handled utensils give the table a rustic charm.
Which look are you going for this year? We’re loving the metallic trend. Stay tuned because on Tuesday we’ll show you how to take this trend, and give it an M&J twist!
Curtains are among the first details you notice when you enter a room. They are both functional and fashionable. In order to get that dramatic effect curtains should be embellished with fringe, pom-pom trim, or greek key Jacquard. Purchasing these curtains ready-made can get pretty expensive which is why we always take the DIY route at M&J. To make your own customized curtains you can purchase inexpensive curtains from a department store and embellish them with any decorative trim. The options are endless!
To give you some inspiration we’ve rounded up some of our favorite curtain makeovers. Let us know what you think!
