Fall Idea House 2016 Part 3

Part 3 of the Fall Idea House 2016 has loads of fall decorating ideas that give you inspiration for your own home. If you missed Part 1 and Part 2, you’ll want to check them out, too. In this post, I will show you features that caught my eye. Remember, this home is decorated three times a year by a team of decorators.

I’ll take you through the bedrooms, craft room, office, craft room, small vintage bathroom, living room and sunroom. I’m highlighting lots of ideas so let’s go!………

The two bedrooms feature unique headboard ideas.

The master bedroom uses assorted wood boards attached to the wall for a headboard. Layered on top is artwork of white trees on glass. The wood boards show right through it.

The headboard in the guest room uses metal wall art.

Other features in the master bedroom include these layering ideas for wall art.

Use two table runners layered behind art work to give it added color and texture.

Next, we go to a craft room.  Wow! Here’s two unusual ideas of String Art! It’s not just for kids anymore!

Notice the revolving metal hardware bin that holds all the paint. On another wall, there’s a vintage iron panel with lights and wall art.

Have you ever thought of using vintage aprons for a window valance?

Now, someone thought “out of the box” when they decorated this vintage bathroom. A small boat-shaped container hangs on the wall for towels. Another idea is to use an old mailbox for a toilet paper holder. Also, just above the sink are several glass containers in a wire basket attached to a salvaged board. And that’s not all….

By using several coordinating shades of taupe napkins attached to a rod, it makes an attractive valance on this small bathroom window. For a small bathroom, it is big on ideas!

The office is next!!

“Watch out” when you walk into the office! This would be a good “time-out” room, too! Perhaps it’s a reminder that it’s “time” to get to work! I could go on and on, but I won’t!  (Sorry, I just couldn’t resist!)

Another view of the office…..

The last area on this tour of decorating ideas, is the living room and sun-room. Another layering idea uses shutters behind framed pictures along with a basket filled with fall stems.

The coffee table is a wood-topped metal bench layered with a striped dish towel for a table runner.

Above the fireplace several sections of metal leaves layered with ceramic bird houses make a big impact. In the fireplace, two garden trellises along with a garden stool support pumpkins and garden mums.

The sunroom has more seating and uses a bench as a coffee table.

A vintage metal work bench serves as a side table. On top of the bench is a rug for a table runner along with a vintage cutting board holding several pottery items.

I found two craft ideas that make great gifts. One was in the sunroom resting on a book and the other was in the kitchen. The first is a bookmark made from the spine of an old leather book. It is simply glued to a backing. I think it looks awesome!

The second is a recipe holder made from a small shutter. They added a piece so it stands.  Two decorative drawer pulls hold the recipe in place!

Spring Idea House Tour 2015 (Part 1)

Spring Idea House Tour (Part 1) grandparentsplus.com

It’s Spring! (at least that’s what the calendar says) Time for another Spring Idea House Tour 2015 (Part 1)! This house is decorated by designers three times a year to highlight repurposed items, decorating trends, new items for sale, along with loads of inspiration for spring! I’m sure you’ll find many ideas for your own home.

Nothing is left undecorated! Even the garage windows are hung with burlap and twine roping. An array of colorful rain boots all lined up, with some used as vases, look so spring-like! Now, this makes a fun entrance! Perhaps, it would be great as an early spring accent on your flower boxes or near your front door or do you decorate your garage, too?

This old wooden painted trunk is stenciled with “Sunshine” and filled with an artificial spring arrangement. I can visualize this using a small wooden box with a similar arrangement used indoors. Can’t you?

The window boxes are filled with a spring arrangement as well! Notice that they use rolled birch bark, too.

As you enter the front porch, a vintage workbench with candles in a glass cylinder are wrapped with burlap and lace.

Spring Idea House 2015 (Part 1)  grandparentsplus.com

This candle idea would work for Christmas by just adding a red bow or red berries.

Also on the porch, the hanging wire spheres are accented with moss balls and decorated with spring floral buds. Wouldn’t this be pretty for a wedding, too!

Here’s another unique idea……   Use chain entwined with decorative ribbon as curtain tie-backs!

This is a re-purposed antique item. Do you know what it is? It is a laundry drying rack hung in the corner of the porch and used as a plant accent! I actually have one of these in the garage somewhere. Got to find it, now. I think I’ll try using it in my laundry room.

Lights are strung out from this sphere in the center of the ceiling. Artificial greenery sets it off.

A large lantern is hung on the wall and filled with a vintage picture and a bottle used as a candle holder.

The dining room is next……

Notice the tablecloth is made of burlap. Tiers of ruffles finish off the look.

You see lots of textured layers used for this table.  Burlap tablecloth, textured fabric runner, pink floral placemat, and a circle burlap placemat make an interesting tablesetting. The napkins are simply tied with twine.  Look carefully as the napkins actually look like a pink flower! On the stem of the wine glass, decorative colored wire is wrapped around the stem and shaped into a leaf.

A green napkin ring finishes off the textured runner.

Back pillows for the chairs are made from kitchen towels.

On the center of the table, the flower arrangements and candles are at varied heights. Stacked, finished chunks of wood make it easy to alter the heights.

Above the sideboard, metal art is layered with colorful artwork. Moss balls are placed on the candle-holder instead of using candles.

The chandelier is  accented with several green balls.

The stained-glass window above the buffet is decorated with vinyl window cling. It sure looks real and gives nice color to that area.

Spring Idea House 2014 – Part 3

Spring Idea House 2014  Part 3

Come with me for a peek into the Spring Idea House Part 3, where we enter a bedroom, den/reading room, hallway, and small bathroom. Many of the ideas, the decorators used, have the ability to be incorporated into your own home.  I know you’ll be inspired by their beautiful rooms.

Walking up the stairs to the bedrooms and den, the decorators  hung  framed wall panels backed with teal colored fabric and embellished with large artificial flowers. Very striking, don’t you think?

At the top of the stairs is the Reading Room/Den with many re-purposed vintage items.

The shelving is made from re-purposed gym benches.

This lighting fixture was one of the most unusual ideas. They took a plastic lampshade and cut slits all around the outside. At each slit, they pushed in a folded book page. Perfect for the “reading” room!

Here’s a better look at the inside….

You need to make sure the bulb is a safe distance from the pages!

The coffee table in the room is a re-purposed industrial cart!

Have a shadow box that you don’t know what to do with? Fill with artificial succulents! Succulents look artificial anyway, so no one will really know! This makes an  interesting wall accent!

spring Idea House 2014 Part 3

The master bedroom color scheme is navy blue, white, teal, with an accent of the bright green! The main wall is dramatic when painted navy blue. The stencil  goes right around the corner. Half of the stencil is painted as a blue shadow against the navy background. Great look!

Spring Idea House 2014 Part 3

Here’s a closer picture showing the stenciling. Love the chevron drapes, too!

Next, is the spare bedroom……

The wall pattern is repeated many different ways in this room. Look for the repetition.

I may be showing my age, but before computers, we used these metal stands for typewriters. It now serves as a night stand.

Look at how a vintage luggage or mail cart is re-purposed as a bench/coat rack with storage below.

Because of this house being very old, there isn’t a large master bath. However, the small bathroom always has some unique ideas.

The decorators used a bookshelf as storage for towels and various bathroom items. Also, a piece of driftwood makes a “one of a kind” wall shelf!

When the ice is off the lakes, I’ll be looking for that perfect piece of driftwood to use in my home, too!

A dish towel with a napkin ring highlights the small bathroom window.

Spring Idea House 2014 Part 3   grandparentsplus.com

Now, that’s easy to do for a small window! Do you remember the kitchen windows in Part 1? This is a variation of that  idea.

I have a small kitchen window in our cabin where this treatment would look great! Just need to wait for warmer weather to get there. Until then, I’ll be looking for the perfect kitchen towel to use.

Did you get some decorating ideas from the Spring Idea House Part 3? Well, there’s more good things to come! Be sure to subscribe to be notified of future posts.
