I also updated my chinoiserie collection with a fall inspired acorn (a Home Goods impulse buy). But honestly I might keep it out year round since Raleigh is the City of Oaks. I'm not much on full-out seasonal decor so I can picture myself rotating this in and out even when I'm not in pumpkin-spice mode.
Because I went to Affordable Chic recently, I had to bring a new antique home with me. An Asian chest with ivory inlay bird details? It wasn't getting left behind.
Even my husband approved (which often doesn't happen with my chinoiserie purchases). Since it is a jewelry box (I think) I struggled with where I should put it. I mean, there is so little admiration it can get in my bathroom. So instead it made it onto the shelves in the den for maximum viewing pleasure.
Speaking of which, the den is starting to come together nicely right now. It just took 3 years....
On my to-do list: I'm not completely in love with my tie-die pillows but I'll keep riding the trend for the moment. I'm also in need of upgrading my lamps -- they seem pretty short in these pictures but probably because the walls are so massively tall. I also want to upgrade our art at some point, but I struggle with knowing what to invest in. Some day I want a really vibrant painting behind the couch, but until then I'm trying to layer in travel posters all around the World Market print we have to create a colorful and more personal gallery wall effect. We've been a few more places so it's time to start adding more frames soon!
