PB Fall Collection

That's right, fall is nearly here. We're going on vacation this weekend trying to squeeze in some beach time before the fall is officially here... but it seems like everyone else is heading back to school and getting ready for the fall. I have to admit I do love changing out my home decor with every season but I'm sad to see the summer end. I have been scoping out some fall decor trying to get my plan together for my own home and Pottery Barn has some great stuff! I've loved the past few seasons with PB featuring a more rustic, farmhouse feel and this season is no exception! Here are a few of my favorites...

They finally got glass cloches!

Love the idea of using glass bottles as candle holders...

Just love these french wire votive holders!

hmm, chippy white paint!

Love these wire baskets!

Grain sack pillows!

Might have to make one of these for myself...

And some adorable furniture! I love this tv stand!

And the entire printer's collection. Gorgeous!

What are your plans for fall decor?

white sofas?

So our two year old sofas in our living room are on their last legs. I made the mistake of getting microfiber with two pets and I'm just overall not impressed with the quality of them. So much to Mr O's chagrin I've been lusting over getting some white slip covered sofas. Probably the Ikea Ektorp.. what do you all think of white sofas? I'd love to hear your opinions, especially if you have them!

friday finds: Chattanooga

This week we're checking out what Chattanooga has to offer! First up is this adorable French provincial desk and dresser set. It's adorable! And they're only asking $45 for both pieces. You can't pass this one up!

This classic dresser is in great shape. I think it would look amazing painted in white with some cup handles or even some library inspired hardware. And it's a great piece for only $70.

This mirror is in fantastic shape! Would you believe they're only asking $10? You can always use a classic mirror like this one! Especially for this price!

This hand painted nightstand has a great shape but could use a makeover. I love the two small drawers! A little white paint and some glass knobs and it would have a whole new life. A great find for only $30.

I seriously love this dresser. It has such a rustic feel. And I love the the drawers have almost a beadboard look. A little paint and some new hardware and this would be the perfect addition to any bedroom! And the best part? It's only $40!

My favorite find this week is this classic desk. It reminds me of the Pottery Barn's new printer's inspired furniture. And it's a real steal for only $25.

Are you looking for a particular item for your home? I'd be thrilled to help you with your search and feature it on an upcoming Friday finds. Just leave a comment here or send an email.
