This bowl is another item I love. I can just picture it with lemons on my kitchen table right now.

Since there seems to be a pattern with the holes that I'm loving, I searched a little more on Etsy and found this fantastic bowl.

And another great "holey" bowl.

I would be ok living in this room and no other room of the house. This picture is so pretty, the organization, the styling, the fact that they have two washers!

This isn't the greatest picture but she used manzanita branches for her centerpieces. We got them wholesale from a floral company here in SLC, and she used apples to fill the vase. Another great thing to use the branches for, like my last post!
I'm pretty sure most everyone says fall is their favorite season, and it is mine also. I just love the temperature changes, and here in Utah we get the best of all four seasons. The mountains are so beautiful with the leaves changing. The colors that come out at this time, that you don't get to see very often, are gorgeous.

Some things I like to decorate with are pumpkins.
I like to spray paint the pumpkins a pretty gold color and place them on our kitchen table. This a great inexpensive decoration to use.
This is not the greatest picture of my pumpkins from two years ago, but you get the idea. I had placed them outside my door, and that is Ainsley's bouncy chair in front. Spray painting pumpkins is cheap, easy, and adds a big impact.
Pine cones are another item I like to use for fall decorating. Either plain or painted.
This is a great bowl that would be fun with pine cones or green apples in it.
I also enjoy decorating with branches, either fallen off a tree or manzanita. I used a manzanita branch sprayed black with my pumpkins, and I have one inside painted white. I love the earthy feel they give to a space, especially in the fall season.

There is not a bad design decision in the whole space. The wall is well utilized with floor to ceiling shelving systems from Elfa. What's so great about this whole system is that you can decide where and how the shelves go. This family needed places for doing homework and computer time, but also needed ample storage for papers and more. I love seeing a space used in a smart way, and outside of the box. That got me thinking about some other creative office areas:

There are so many ways to achieve the silhouette look; people, kids, and animals just to name a few. The website "Paste" puts a different spin off of the normal silhouette, but it's so fun. It's made by using scraps of paper. I like this unique approach.

The great thing about these is that you can easily make them yourself, or find them online for a reasonable price. Silhouettes add such character and whimsy to a space. I just started on one of my daughter Ainsley. I can't wait to see how it turns out.... She has the roundest cheeks!
