    No Hang Ups

    Renting typically means no painting and no wallpaper. Which is why I’m gradually warming up to the idea of wall tapestries. Urban Outfitters has been stocking them for a few years now, but lately they seem to have slightly more sophisticated options. Like this Phula Garden Tapestry from Plum & Bow. It’s 56″ x 84″ and I love the deep navy and plum. $59 each.

    Lovely Layers

    Stylish Halloween Round-Up

    I’m a big fan of multitasking. So I’m a big fan of Halloween decor that is classy enough to be used or displayed year round (depending on your tastes, of course). So here is a round up of some of my favorite spooky decor. Above, Halloween Medallion Plates, $31.95 at Williams Sonoma.

    Molded Resin Snake Box, $39.95 at Z Gallerie.

    Skull Vase, $42 at West Elm.

    Coasting Along

    Coasters are meant to stop condensation from putting rings on your furniture. Which makes me wonder why most coasters are made of plastic, glass or ceramic. All three materials end up stuck to the bottom of a dripping glass. Maybe it’s time for me to order some of these leather gem coasters from Urban Outfitters. $45 for the set of 4.

    Spin Me a Yarn

    There’s something so charming and folksy about these Yarn Tassel Knob Bobbles from Aunt Peaches. And that’s leaving out how amazingly fun it is to say “Yarn Tassel Knob Bobbles.” All you need to make them is some colorful yarn and a few inexpensive bracelets. Get the how-to here.

    Etsy Find: I Saw the Sign

    I’ve always thought a subtle neon sign can add a pop of modern to more traditional decor. I’ve just never thought I’d find a neon sign that was even remotely affordable. That was until I ran across Marcus Conrad Poston’s Etsy shop. His signs aren’t exactly cheap, but they come in under $1000 each. Above, super awesome J’adore neon sign, $650. Poston also does custom jobs. Via PoppyTalk.

    Outside the Frame

    What a cool and eye-catching way to display art. They’ve simply continued a graphic element out of the frame onto the wall. Via Coco & Kelley.
