Did you enjoy the week of fantastic home tours? Thoroughly inspired to bring a little fall into your home? We had dinner with my sister this weekend and she said she was inspired to finally take down her 4th of july stuff and replace it with leaves, pumpkins and cozy textures. Her house always looks great and I’m excited to see what she has done with it now.
So let’s talk about some of the items seen in the second half of our house tour (first half, click here. And for sources, here.) Most of the furniture and accessories are not new which means they are not always still available for purchase, but I’ll share links where applicable.
wall // I double-stick taped pages from a french book to the wall about 7 years ago. They’re getting a little tattered, but I still love the texture it brings.
seats // we found these old theater seats at our favorite local salvage shop called Second Use in Seattle. They came from a high school and I think we paid about $15 for the group.
banner // this was a diy done a few years ago. I’ll post a tutorial shortly with templates.
stag // he’s heavy and modern, but still quirky and a little traditional. I love the simplicity of having nothing on the mantle and the stag as the focal point.
bow pillow // a pillow I made last fall that I’ll post a tutorial for. It’s made of a subtle plaid menswear-like fabric.
sofa // I’m still loving our linen couch. It has held up well (we don’t let the kids eat on it and I’m slightly protective) and is super comfy.
tray // not finding this one online, and maybe it’s no longer available because I’ve had it for several months. Trays are great for corralling items on a coffee table.
coffee table // no longer available from wisteria (which is a bummer, because it’s heavy and really well-made) but here is a similar look from World Market.
rug // another discontinued item (why would you discontinue a striped rug? I do not know). You can get almost the same thing from here.
silver // pretty much all of the silver pieces in our home came from my mother-in-law who finds them at the thrift store. And then she passes them on to me (lucky girl). I shine it maybe once every two years? Maybe? I actually prefer the tarnished look.
pom throw // inspired by this beauty, I decided to try a diy version. It turned out really well and a tutorial is upcoming.
candle // I’ll be honest – scented candles give me a headache. Most of them, at least. But I love the cozy lighting and the gentle smell when it’s gentle and not overpowering. I found this one at target and mostly like it for it’s packaging, but the smell is good too. I’m not finding it online, but it’s the Shades of Glass wild mint + verbena.
dishes // perhaps my most beloved christmas gifts ever – these dishes are stored away until the fall and they are for sure a seasonal favorite.
chalkboard // such an easy diy project! And I especially like it with the Seahawks schedule #gohawks
