Rustic Thanksgiving Inspiration in Rich Colors

Rustic Vintage Wedding in Rich Reds Orange

I was out and about searching for Thanksgiving inspiration when I came across this beautiful rustic wedding at one of my favorite blogs, Style Me Pretty. Jessica Claire, a fantastic artist and photographer in her own right, married in Napa Valley and shared her wedding inspiration through the eyes of photographer Jose Villa. Check out their blogs for a little {swooning} over pure photography bliss.

Gorgeous wedding aside, this would make a LOVELY Thanksgiving tablescape! From the rich colors to the vintage appeal and outdoor ambiance — I’m picturing what random vases I might have around to copy this beautiful look.

Simple floral centerpieces, thrift store vases and containers, a single statement runner in lieu of a tablecloth, and just a hint of glam in sparkly gold chargers all contribute to a cozy but festive tablescape.

Casual tall branches poke out of an unassuming vase and become the focal point for a buffet or kitchen table arrangement. A hodge podge of fresh flowers from your local farmers market contribute color, but there’s no need to stick to a style or shade — buy what’s fresh and in season.

Getting Cozy for the Fall… Knitted Chairs!

Knit Chairs 1

Love to knit? Then I’ve got the project for you… cozy up to one of these awesome chairs this fall by taking inspiration from the UK’s Melanie Porter who showcases an entire collection of knitted gloriousness. Oh how I would LOVE to snuggle with a chair like this by the fire!

Decor8 shared this wonderful artist a while back, and I’m beginning to wonder how I might reupholster one of my own chairs with my novice knitting skills?

Knit Chairs Melanie Porter 2

When in doubt, leave it to the pro. In Melanie’s words, “Each project starts with the chair itself – anything from an antique Victorian nursing chair, to a 1970s Egg chair – which is painstakingly stripped back to the frame, before being restored and reupholstered using traditional techniques. This blank canvas is then covered with a series of hand-knitted panels, especially created for each chair.”

Hot cocoa and a good book, anyone?
