Things We Love: Painted Wood Houses

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a fabulous Thursday. We are getting ready for Halloween and trick or treating and can’t wait to be able to carve our pumpkins!

Even if orange and black isn’t your favorite color combo, there are so many fun ways to spruce your home for fall–starting with the exterior and the landscape.

New, seasonal flowers, fresh mulch or pine straw and giving the bushes a good prune can make a world of difference in a home’s exterior and curb appeal.

We don’t know about you, but we love painted, wood houses.

On a home that’s a throwback to a simpler time or a fresh, new facade, a pretty painted exterior is a forever favorite.

Exterior paint sets the tone for what’s to come in a big, big way.

The problem with painted wood houses? Well, they have to be painted. A lot. Especially when they’re on the water. In fact, I’m pretty sure we’re always painting ours on some side and when that one’s done it’s time to do the next one!

But oh, it’s so worth it.  There is nothing quite like the charm of a painted wood house!

We absolutely adore the look of these gorgeous flowers growing up the side of this painted facade. It’s the perfect fresh complement to make any home ready for fall!

Are you a painted house lover?

Things We Love: Daybeds

For smaller bedrooms, awkward shapes or multi-purpose rooms where guests might stay, no piece of furniture is as versatile as a beautiful daybed.  Perfect for sitting or displaying statement-making pillows, the only problem with some of these daybeds is that they’re too beautiful for sleeping. Take a look at these pictures and we think you’ll agree. Happy Thursday, Friends!

Things We Love: Bench Seating

When it comes to interior design, we could live a variety of ways. We’ll admit that we like formal details every now and then, crystal chandeliers and fussy fabrics. But we’re also huge fans of casual spaces that feel welcoming–and like it would be okay if you accidentally spilled your spaghetti.

Things We Love: Console Tables

For a welcoming statement in an entrance hall, a desk alternative in a tight space or filling a narrow spot, we just love console tables.
