Hello Fall- Get The Look

September, the time of year when it dawns on you that Mother Nature’s palette is changing from the bright greens of summer to the golds and browns of autumn. Happily vintage treasures come in all those shades so the time is right to welcome FALL into your home. 

“By all these lovely tokens September days are here, with summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer.” — Helen Hunt Jackson

5 fast pedestal perfect decor ideas

amber pedestal

Cake pedestals are a fine thing. They can elevate a box of store-bought cupcakes to a gourmet delicacy. And they are also quite versatile around the house for both decorative and functional uses. As summer winds down, you might be feeling that urge to tweak your decor just a bit. Go no further than your serving pieces; grab a pedestal that is way too pretty to be hiding in a cabinet and treat yourself to a quick change up.

Stacked pedestals offer multiple layers of storage, convenience and style. Easy to arrange materials for your current projects and keep them close at hand. While this is probably not a great long term storage solution, it does keep your work surface tidy and makes you feel elegant at the same time. Design from HGTV.

Gain a little counter space and elevate your dishwashing game by using a pretty pedestal to elevate your dish liquid and hand soap. Find a pretty bowl to be a sponge caddy (if you’re still using a sponge after the horrifying bad press sponges as bacteria colonies got this summer–ewww). Design from Liz Marie Blog.

Pretty perfume bottles deserve more than to collect dust on the vanity. Tiny works of design, collecting them on a pedestal gives them a chance to see and be seen. Add a little WWAD (what would Audrey do) touch by snaking a string of pearls through the bottles. Design from Helpful Homemade.

cake pedestal with plants

A pedestal on the windowsill

If you’re enamored of the tiny succulents that are sprouting everywhere, the power of many has much more design punch than the loneliness of one. Group three little plants on a cake pedestal for a temporary display. Don’t forget to add a saucer, you don’t want mineralization from watering to mar your pedestal surface. Design from In the New House.

pedestal with jars

A pedestal in the center of everything

Whether your keep a stash of jars or you have to raid your recycle bin, pedestal plus jars plus snips from the garden makes a sweet summer impression. Sneak in some shells from the beach or stones from a hike. Add some of the magical-mystical-make-everything-amazing battery powered micro lights to soften the earlier twilights of late August. Design from Southern State of Mind.

Get the Look: Twin Peaks, original

twin peaks pie quote

It’s 1990. You’re watching TV and you find yourself at the intersection of surreal and plaid. And so many characters and so many subplots that you needed a diagram to keep up with the twists and turns. Yup. Twin Peaks, iconic serial drama. It’s back. Starting tonight on Showtime, 18 new episodes returning us to the mysterious Pacific Northwest town 25 years after Laura Palmer was murdered. Written and executive produced by David Lynch and Mark Frost? Yup. Returning cast members? Yup. Get the look? Yes please.
