Indulged in a little retail therapy. I guess I caught a shopping bug with this change in weather.
I have a home accessories fetish. I think it's because I seem to have trouble making Big Decisions regarding home decor so I make small decisions instead. I am constantly amazed by the gazillions of bloggers out there who can paint and glaze furniture, sew drapes, whip up some cupcakes, put up board and batten, make homemade baby food...all before lunch. They don't seem to have any trouble making a plan and then implementing it. Me? I shop.
I went to one furniture store and a lot of home discount stores today: Marshall's, Stein Mart, Tuesday Morning, and Ross. Here are a few things that caught my eye.
|From Weir's Furniture|
I love this little hall chest: the yummy color (kind of a grey-green), the shape, the storage. It is a steal at $199. I need to measure to see if it would fit in my house somewhere. Remember what I said about me and Big Decisions?
I noticed a lot of grey (or greige) and burlap all over the place. I can't decide if the stores are following the blog trends or if the blogs are following the home store trends.
Here are some gray offerings from Stein Mart:
|Love the reticulated (pierced) edge on this|
|More galvanized metal, this time with some wicker for texture and warmth|
Here is Marshalls' homage to grey:
|Nice lantern -- I have a similar one that I may paint|
|Another lantern design|
|Love the box pleats on this grey pillow...|
|and the puckered texture on this one!|
Here was the piece de resistance at Marshalls:
|Fab, French Linen for $199?--Oo la la!|
So do you want to see what I bought? There's not one grey thing among them!
|Little white pitcher--$3 from Ross|
|Presto-changeo candleholder (aka mini cloche)--$7 at Tuesday Morning|
|Cool little sign that has my fave colors--$7 at Marshalls|
What do YOU do when you get the Fever?
