Recently I heard the phrase ‘rustic and refined’ and I thought ‘THAT’S the feel I’m trying to achieve at the cabin’! To me, it represents a style that is warm with lots of texture, a tad sophisticated but doesn’t take itself too seriously.
These glasses, a recent purchase from Pier I, represent that style well and I’m totally in love with them.
These metallic orbs are another new favorite of mine. I like things that are a bit different and versatile, and these fit the bill. I think I’ll use these for months to come.
The table runner and napkins are a combination of velvet and a nubby linen like fabric which are the perfect combination of rustic and refined. I love velvet, and I love linen, so these are two items I couldn’t pass up.
I got 9 of those battery operated ‘candles’ at a tag sale for $4.00. Everything else came from HomeGoods or Pier I, two of my favorite stores. I don’t know about you, but I can spend hours looking around in those stores, AND then spend hours playing around with table settings, especially this time of year. I think we can all agree the colors of Autumn are fabulous to work with and such fun.
When it comes to decorating, I think tablescapes are one of my favorite things to do. I just wish I had more storage space so I could collect interesting items and take them out when the mood hits.
What’s your favorite?
