SWEET SATURDAY #4


Did you see Sarah's bathroom renovation?  Wowzers!!  Sarah, would you and David please come re-design my master bathroom???  And do all of the work?  ;)   (Please pin from original source.)


I've had fun working as part of the At Home Stores Inspiration Team for the past few months, and my friend Vel finally made her way to her local store.  She was surprised to see some of her favorite designer inspired mirrors that can be found for a fraction of the cost of the real deal!  See her mirror Look for Less pics at Life & Home at 2102.

Isn't this DIY pouf great?  Maggie was inspired by a pricier West Elm version.  You won't believe what she made it with! (Please pin from original source.)


Speaking of DIY, last night I just finished up my "new" bamboo hall table and stools. The covers on the caster wheels were so dark, I wasn't sure what color they originally were, but I thought I'd try polishing them and see what happened.  I used a scratch-free scrubbing pad, my favorite cleaner for brass, Bar Keeper's Friend (liquid or powder), and LOTS of elbow grease, and was happy to find shiny metal under there.  I'm not sure if it's brass, the color seems a little off for it to be, but I much prefer the polished wheels.   I've moved some things around in the living room and am anxious to show it to you this week.


Shiplap shiplap shiplap is all the buzz, but what if you don't care for shiplap?  A group of super creative bloggers posted loads of ideas for beautiful wall treatments that aren't shiplap this week.  If you're looking for something different, check out these posts!  Start at Rain on a Tin Roof, then Jenna has links to all 20 blogs participating at the bottom of her post.  (Please pin from original source.)



I hope you all enjoy your weekend!  I am scrambling like crazy to prepare to leave for NYC in less than 48 hours.  Thank you all for your great suggestions you left last week on what to do and where to eat.  Now, we may just be arranging our first ever Uber when we get there!  I have some new friends for you to meet while I'm gone, and I'll pop in on Wednesday with the part 2 of my Fall home tour.  See you soon, and you can follow along with our fun on Instagram and Instastories!

FALL HARVEST TABLESCAPE


I have partnered with At Home as a member of the At Home Inspiration Team for this sponsored post and am happy to share some of my favorite products with you!  All opinions are mine alone.

Now that we have a great outdoor dining area on our new patio, I thought it would be so fun to set up a Fall harvest tablescape outside.  I headed to my local At Home store for some seasonal inspiration, and I wasn't disappointed!


As soon as I saw this modern squirrel statue, I knew he had to be the jumping off point for my table.  He was just too cute to pass up and I love that he's an outdoor accessory that I can use elsewhere on the patio or tucked in a flowerbed long after this tablescape is gone.

He's holding a darling little scooped out acorn, perfect for a votive candle or filling with treats like I did with the peanuts... it was a toss up between those and candy corn!


For the centerpiece, I used a simple glass jar filled with roadside sunflowers and pretty filler weeds(?) flowers, propped on a small cake pedestal to add some height.


Small pumpkins are corralled and piled on a galvanized metal tray.  I almost picked up a simple galvanized tray, then my sister spotted this one with the cool geometric cut out pattern on the sides, and the copper trim makes it even more special.  Not shown are the chunky rope handles that add even more texture and interest.  I couldn't find a link to this one online, but there are several different sizes and they should be available in store.


As a base layer for the table, I started by spreading out a plaid scarf for a runner, then layered this pretty burlap braid table runner on top of it.


I mixed in some of my favorite black and white patterns on the place setting, and although there's a lot of pattern and color going on, I think it all relates well together.  Fall is all about piling on the cozy plaids and patterns!


I've said before and I'll say it again, I LOVE mixing metals in the Fall.  I've put together the dark pewter/copper on the tray, used silver flatware, and pulled in copper mugs instead of regular glasses.


Each place is finished off with a mini straw bale serving as a place card.  I used some craft supplies I had on hand and glued each name card to a wooden skewer to insert into the bale.


When I found the squirrels I had a cabin, "lodge-y" theme in mind, so the plaid, burlap, mixed metals, a variety of colors and textures,  and a nod to some older items with the flatware and vintage steak knives all played together to accomplish the look.



Although I didn't use too many of these traditional "Fall" colors of orange, yellow, and brown inside the house very much this year, I sure and enjoying them out on the patio!

TRENDING: GREEN CABINETRY


I'm noticing a trend lately that I can totally get on board with... green cabinetry.  I know that sage green and more muted tones have likely been popular for years, but I'm talking GREEN green.  My green.  Bold green.

While looking through this month's HGTV magazine, this kitchen stopped me in my tracks! I studied each detail and was SO drawn to that gorgeous green island.  Right then and there I got up and looked at my kitchen and wondered if I could do the same.


Sadly, I don't think it would work with my current kitchen countertops, but I've tucked this idea away for the future for sure.  I've been looking to replace my barstools, though, and those are certainly inspiring me!

Here's a peek of one corner of the kitchen via Style Me Pretty (photographed by Alyssa Rosenheck)- see the post for more photos and information on the design.


But, that's not the only place I'm seeing pretty green cabinets turn up.  My friend Emily has done a complete kitchen remodel, and do you see those green cabinets peeking out in the corner?  She hasn't posted a full reveal of the space yet, but I'm waiting with baited breath... hurry up, Emily!  :)

Kitchens aren't the only place green cabinets are turning up.  How gorgeous is this bathroom?  I give this color combo two thumbs up.


A variation that I'm also loving is a deep, rich, moody toned green.


Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Company just revealed her gorgeous new kitchen, full of lovely green/blue/gray cabinets, metallic and wood accents, and that stunning vintage runner.


Afraid of color on your cabinets?  I think the key in most of these photos is lots of light/white mixed in with a saturated dose of color.  An island is always a "safe" play to experiment with color, or like the photo above a bold color on a bathroom vanity could be a good jumping off point.

What do you think?  Would you/have you used a bold color (maybe green!) on any cabinets?
