Since I live in a fairly private setting, there is little need to cover my windows for privacy. So to add some softness to this rustic style room, I opted for the graphic patterns and textures of traditional kilim rugs.
I used a simple metal rod and circular drapery hardware with clips attached. I clipped the kilim evenly spaced and once it was hung, adjusted as needed to keep the “flow” even. Since my window is wide, I needed two kilims to cover the width with all the folds. The picture on the left shows how I ‘married’ the two ends together. I clipped them relatively tightly together then added the large button and leather strips as a decorative feature. I repeated this at each end as well for a uniform look.
I was inspired by a fellow Instagram Account to create this tabletop display in my kitchen. I had the carousel and was actually thinking of getting rid of it! I made a display of similarly themed small items. It’s a great way to corral those “little” items we all know and love, but never know where to put them to keep them from looking clutter-y.
I do have an affinity for sleighs. This one I found at Hobby Lobby and filled it with beautiful greens and snowy pine cones. It makes just the perfect tabletop display. Add tiny lights, the battery operated types, for an extra glow-y effect!
Breaking away from the traditional wreath, this fall basket is bursting with autumn accents. Feeling inspired? Try your hand at this project, I’ve given instructions under “Create”.
