As many of you know, that follow my blog, I love pillows. I love pillows the way that Oprah loves bread! I love pillows the way that Imelda Marcos loved shoes. So, that means that I have WAY too many in my home. Now, because I don't like a cluttered look when I decorate, I have a lot of them in storage. My storage area (for pillows) is in my guest room closet. God forbid anyone stay longer than one or two nights because I don't have a closet for your clothes. Ha! Since my pillow closet started filling up to the point where I could barely close the doors, I decided now might be a good time to re-think how I store my pillows. And, a little cleaning out might be in order too.
Here was the state of my pillow closet before I got started.
Since my husband and I plan on moving in the next few years, we like to look at new homes being built to get ideas of what we want in our next house. It's also good to see what you can get for the money and an idea of good areas to live. We found a new subdivision not far from our current home that was beautiful! Unfortunately, the homes were a lot bigger than we need and were well above our budget. But, it was fun to see what was out there and get ideas to incorporate into our current home or our next home. I took some pics to share with you because I knew you would enjoy the tour as well! This home wasn't huge on exquisite decor but huge on pretty architectural elements and other ideas to have built into your home. Those are what I'm highlighting here. I'm not sharing the entire house. I"m only sharing rooms where I saw something that peaked my interest.
Here is the home exterior. Really gorgeous right?!
Welcome to Share Your Style! I'm Julie from Little Farmstead, and I'm your host this week. Whether you're here to browse the party for inspiration, or whether you'll be linking up your recent projects with us, we're so happy to have you participate!
How was your weekend? I hope it was good. Mine was uneventful. I was finally able to enjoy some much cooler weather here though! I heard it won't last long, but I was happy to feel the change.
October, here in GA, usually is the turning point for Fall. We should start seeing the leaves change color, cooler temps, and the night sky falling on us sooner. One of the best things about Fall is that daylight savings time will finally end! That is the bogus time change that we no longer need anymore. So, now the clock will reflect the true time of day that it is supposed to be. Can you tell that I'm not a fan?
Now that it's October, the pumpkins can officially come out! For now, I only have a few boo pumpkins set about. I have some on my mantel and in my kitchen. I love how cute they are.
Here is my mantel. I don't go overboard with seasonal decorating. I like just a touch.
Here is a small boo pumpkin set on top of a preserved box wood wreath.
to our 85th Share Your Style blog party. Autumn has officially arrived and I am seeing so much beautiful inspiration in your homes for decorating with a Fall flare, yummy (gotta try) recipes, life style suggestions, fashion and lots more. A big thank you to all who join us.
Your hosts are a party of five so when you participate in the party you will get lots of exposure.
