“Fall”ing for Blue for Fall Decor

I am “fall”ing for blue for Fall decor this year.

I am doing this for two reasons.

One, because I love blue.

Two, because I need to keep my interiors simple in these days

of being in the process of selling our home.

I was able to visit a couple of Pottery Barn stores while I was in California

and I caught some great sales.

A Bar Cart or a Tea Cart?

When I placed the vintage drop leaf table that I painted in a corner of the guest room . . .

I had to re-locate the piece of furniture that was in that spot. Which was the Ethan Allen tea cart

that I found last year at an estate sale.

The Ethan Allen tea cart that I so very much wanted in our early years of marriage

but just could not afford it. Practicality always got in the way.

Birdcage Vignette

I am slowly making some small changes in my master bedroom…

I have a dresser that has a “matchy” mirror.

I tried to “hide” that fact by placing a large birdcage in front of the dresser.

It did the trick..but it was time for a change.

This area seemed to be the perfect fit.

I bought this birdcage a few years ago at our neighborhood yard sale.

It actually has two additional sections that you can add to the bottom portion.

I added an orchid from Trader Joe’s to the vignette and placed it in a vintage American Fostoria vase.

In the morning when the sun is shining through the windows…

…..there are beautiful little reflections of rainbow colors on the wall.

They are from my Swarovski Crystals that hang in my windows..

I so enjoy this “mini light show” every morning…just starts the day off on a happy note!

And I hope your day started out on a happy note too!!!
