443rd Inspire Me Tuesday

Welcome to the 443rd Inspire Me Tuesday.  Lots of pretty fall going on all over blogland.  Everyone is enjoying the cooler weather and thinking about the Holidays. 

Everyday Living created this beautiful outdoor tablescape and also shared several other tables that will totally inspire you. 

To all of our Canadian friends - Happy Thanksgiving.  Dining Delight shared her pretty table with lots of fabulous copper. 

Here's another fun DIY Fabric Pumpkin tutorial using cabinet knobs.  Check out The Interior Frugalista.

I love this pretty urn Pumpkin Topiary.  Inspiration For Moms shares her step by step to create one.

Last week I was auditioning this mirror for my Mini Living Room Makeover.  I have also been practing, practicing, practicing how to use my new camera. 

Ok, let's see what you have for this week.

Create A Warm & Cozy Master Bedroom

A simple and easy way to Create A Warm & Cozy Master Bedroom.

You all know that I love to switch things up around here and lately I have been on a recycling kick.  By that I mean taking accessories that I have been using in one room and then using them in another room for a completely different look.  

I've had Blue and White in the master for a while, time to warm it up a bit. 

I have been using these brown pillows in the living room for a while, so time to move them around.  I dug these pillows out of my stash when I was trying to figure out what would go with the art my daughter loaned me.  


These pillows are actually ones I made out of the same fabric as my bed skirt.  I chose this fabric because it complimented the headboard fabric.



 It's a pretty crushed silk with crushed velvet embroidery. 


I always get a lot of questions about my headboard.  Check out how how I redid this thrifty $79.50 find with a little old world paint technique.







Love the way the pillows create a custom designer look for the bed and the fur makes it such a cozy setting.  Plus that leather chair is a long time favorite. 
(I know I still need to paint that jewelry armoire as soon as my back is well.)



How do you create a cozy bedroom?

Step by Step - Change Your Color Scheme The Easy Way

If you follow me then you know I have been auditioning all kinds of furniture, art and accessories for my living room.  I am in the process of a makeover of sorts.  (That huge mirror I had over the sofa is gone - now what?)  My daughter has loaned me some art to fill up the empty wall behind the sofa for now, however I am struggling with adding color that doesn't clash with the art.

(I am also practicing, practicing, practicing with my new camera.  I am taking hundred of shots.  Still a learning curve, but they are getting better.)


I have some rust and black on the patio and it looks great, so I thought I would try the same thing here.  


I pulled out some teal pillow covers that you see on the chair, they didn't look exactly like what I wanted for fall.  However I did find out that the teal color would work with the art.  

This is what I have been using for a while.  The Brown is nice, but I really am a color girl.


I only buy pillow covers whenever I can.  If a pillow comes with an insert that isn't down, then I take the insert out and give it to Goodwill.  Then all I have to store are a gazillion pillow covers.  When I want to audition a pillow for a new arrangement and color scheme, I just drape one of the covers over an existing pillow to see how it looks.


This works, but maybe this is a little more winter or Halloween than fall.

I think I like the idea of just the orange for fall and keeping the antelope pillows to go with it.  The floral arrangement on the coffee table adds more orange around the space.

Yes, this brings a little fall into the room and it is still light and airy.


At the same time, I found a mirror to replace the borrowed art and I think it is a winner.   So here is how the room looks now. 





I think I am finally getting the room to look like me, I am loving the mirror and the way it adds some character to the wall.   

So do you go really bright and bold for Fall or do you tame it down a little like me.
