Another week has flown by and we have made it to October – I truly can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. With fall (affordable decorating) in full swing, it’s officially sports ball season. I am definitely not a football fan, The Real Housewives of New York is more my speed. However, I am a fan of the amazing snacks that come along with this time of year. Jalapeño cheese crisps anyone? Plus, are we here for Taylor Swift & Travis Kelce? Yes, I am a Swifty and I literally just bought this Kelce t-shirt – because, well if he’s good enough for Taylor, then his shirt is good enough for me. Come at me. P.S. Did you see how cute Tay Tay was at his game last week? This is the joy I need in my life right now. Either way, Cruel Summer has been my go-to song on repeat when I drive up to the cottage. I literally blast in all the way there.
In other news, I also had a blast at my local flea market here in San Francisco. I found tons of gems to add to the cabin and my living room design. While I am having serious regret about not grabbing this giant vintage oil painting, I did walk away tickled as I snagged three copper cookware utensils that are going to look perfect on a pot rail in the kitchen attached to the exposed beam at the cottage – it’s so fun to be style sourcing again. Oh, one more thing. Can we say weather vein?
Sure, I don’t have drinkable water, barely any internet, and a scorched electrical panel – but I got a new weather vein. I haven’t shared it on social yet, but I couldn’t tell you – my besties. Look how cute this peacock weather vein is. Is she not magical? I wanted something traditional with a twist. I think this is a touchdown. Maybe I am a sports guy after all.
Okay, another update I want to give you is I am re-obsessed with the baked feta pasta dish. Honestly, it’s the perfect dish for cozy weeknights now that the weather is starting to cool down. You can’t beat a one-pot dish, especially one with an entire block of feta in it. While I’ve been perfecting the weeknight dinners I’ve been scrolling the world of interior design for inspiration. I share some unique favorites on my Instagram stories every morning so don’t forget to check those out!
Last week, I shared a beautiful Wildflower Dining Room design with perfect wallpaper. This week, I found a stunning English cottage-style living room design that has me dreaming of a vacation to the United Kingdom. It’s cozy, it’s layered, it’s homey, and it’s stunning! The mixing and matching of the textiles creates such a welcoming vibe and I dream of the day I can curl up on a couch like this with a good book and a cup of tea. I’m stoked about this mood board – let’s jump in!
