On Friday afternoon, a home item I’ve been brainstorming, second guessing and pondering arrived: a new guest room rug! While it shouldn’t have been that big of a decision, it became one as I had the hardest time committing. Because the room is a catch-all of furniture right now, I wanted a rug that would help the room take shape and now that it’s in place I’m overflowing with fun ideas for the space. It will be a winter project for the months ahead, but in the meantime, here are a few items I’d love to add to the mix. And this too, of course. Keep you posted!

2 :: I Got This print from BRIKA
3 :: Faux Sheepskin from IKEA
4 :: Costas Plaid Throw from Crate & Barrel
5 :: Pelham Orange Pillow from Crate & Barrel
6 :: Metal Basket from H&M
7 :: Threshold Accent Table Hourglass from Target

This chair stopped me dead in my tracks today. While it may not entice you go plop down after a long day of work and enjoy some trash television, it definitely entices me to put on some great shoes, pour a simple drink and chat alongside friends. Not a bad vibe to give with just a few simple curves.

This has been the perfect fall weekend! The temperatures have been ideal, the sun is shining and we’ve been spending time with family and friends over bowls of chili, pumpkin carving and football games. If that doesn’t scream fall, I don’t know what does. The fun continues today as I’m running out the door to assemble Halloween costumes! Be sure to check Instagram next Friday. I’m sure they’ll be a post! Until then, enjoy these links from around the web.
Talk about a slow-moving week, eh? For some reason the days seems to crawl by, the nights were to short and I am oh-so ready for an evening of baking, an autumn stroll and a movie. Sounds pretty perfect right about now. Hope you’re able to indulge in the season this weekend and check back on Sunday for the wrap up. See you then, friends!

Things that are happening this weekend: this dip.
I realize it’s only Thursday but I’ve been plotting a weekend full of plans, one of which is the Slow Cooker Corn and Jalapeno Dip above. Damn Delicious knows her stuff, so I have a feeling I won’t be disappointed.

We’ve reached that magical time of year when the sun beams into your eyes on the way to and from work, when you need the heat in the morning and air conditioner in the afternoon, when layers are your new best friend… you know the drill. As the days of bare legs are winding down I was inspired by these two monochromatic looks. Chunky knits and classic knits are definitely things I’m into. Bring on the unpredictable Midwest temps, I’ll be ready!

If you’re on the market for house numbers (a niche market, I know), look no further. I spotted these beauties from Anthropologie today and can’t get enough. I’m sure they’d be perfect next to your front door!

Yesterday started out so innocently. I carved out some time to finally paint the trim in the dining room white (you know, the never-ending quest I’m on to make our trim match… riveting stuff) and during the process, I noticed that our poor wallpaper was looking pretty sad. Even after install, it was never quite right. Our 90-year old walls are uneven, hard to adhere to and unpredictable, to say the least. So, in a fit of rage, I tore down all the wallpaper yesterday. As a testament to how poorly the product and our walls played together, the sheets came off in one big piece from crown molding to baseboard. Probably the easiest removal ever, but now I’ve got torn up dining room and very little time to address it. Woops! Off to Ace now to figure out next steps. Enjoy these links while I bug my favorite hardware workers.
At a photo shoot this fall I decided I needed a cape. The Tracy Reese number that triggered this idea was out of my price range, but I’m still on the hunt for a reasonably-priced and chic number to add to my closet. The four above styles and patterns caught my eye in a recent search. Send any good finds my way and have a great weekend!
