Hi friends, happy weekend to you! I’m headed to IKEA today for a few things, I haven’t been in over a year since it’s an hour away and I tend to get lost in there don’t we all? Tomorrow I’m running a 5K which I’ve trained for, not too difficult only 3 miles but I like being at a fitness level where a three mile run is no big deal, that feels great! Here’s the roundup of favorite projects spied on the web, enjoy!
Don’t you love when all the fall catalogs arrive? I do, it’s so fun to see the all the collections revealed, what’s new and what’s trending. I study the cozy layered spaces, the best ones mixing wood tones and/or painted finishes with a variety of textures including beautiful fabrics, woven and organic materials. I also look for a touch of metal somewhere, cooler chromes and silvers or warm gold and copper. Metallic sheens add that extra layer of luxe, they pop out at me as I pour over my stack of fall catalogs, latte in hand. I’ve noticed a few visiting some shops recently too, here are some favorites!
First up this coffee table that I’m crushing on and considering for our family room, it’s the right size and brings a touch of glam. Slightly out of my budget but I absolutely love it!
Next up this curvy brass shelf. At first it reminded me of those shiny lacquered ones from the 80s but the shape is reinvented with a modern twist featuring more elegant lines and in brushed metallic gold. I haven’t seen this particular piece in person but at first glance I find it very chic for a living room or home office!
I spied this last month at World Market and tried to think of a place to put it, this desk makes an instant home office anywhere. Elegant enough to tuck under a window in a bedroom or living room and of course perfectly placed in a home office.
Rose gold and copper are just as alluring this season as they were last autumn. This pair of tables can be pulled up anywhere next to a chair or sofa or tucked in a corner, the skinny design makes them perfect for potted plants or as a place to set your beverage.
A console table multitasks, squeezing into hallways, up against walls in dining and living rooms, and behind sofas too. This streamlined gold version is at home in any space from traditional to contemporary.
