{lovely weekend} relaxed beauty…

September 25, 2010

So very happy for fall! The temperature outside is finally cooling off so I can begin wearing long, beautiful coats again.

I spend most of this weekend finding new ways to decorate my living room. I definitely want to incorporate more blacks; they compliment well-lit rooms so well. The bottom photo is a great example of what I want to do but I have been trying to hunt down a great set of Black wicker furniture but have had no luck. I’ll keep trying til I can find that perfect one!

Some of my favorite posts for this week:

Past posts you may love:

Hope everyone’s weekend is going wonderfully!

    This is a gorgeous welcome to Autumn, I must say! I was instantly drawn to these images…

    I find that right now I’m really drawn to rich colors, a multitude of metallic tones (especially aged gold, copper and silver) and high contrasts. I put away my vintage milk glass, pastels and bright yellow in exchange for my deep silver taffeta pillows, faux fur winter white blanket, and am now on the hunt for new curtains. Black wicker would be so dramatic — if I happen to see anything that might work, I will message you :)

    Enjoy the weekend, Amanda — thank you for another week of pure eye candy.

    Just beautiful. It might be easiest to find wicker furniture you like and spray it with a high gloss black than trying to find black wicker…

      Im allergic to something inside those spray-cans! We’ve never been able to figure out what exactly but the few times we used it I broke out in hives on my face. I guess I could get my boyfriend to do it and I could look outside the sliding glass door, lol.
