Navy & Caramel Tones: Friday Faves

Coastal InteriorsAnneke McConnellComment

It must be the crisp in the air as the weather turns here in the Seattle area, but I can't help but be drawn to those warm fall colors as the leaves already start to turn colors of yellow, orange, gold, and brown. 


On a personal note, we survived the start of school and we now officially have a middle schooler on our hands. This is a pretty fun stage as a parent of 3 kiddos!

Today's post is short and sweet as we get ready to celebrate our oldest daughter's birthday this weekend!  I'm tempted to order this "I Love You To The Beach & Back" sign for her! I love it! hehe ;-)

Navy is a staple color year round for me, but throw in a little caramel color and it instantly feels fall.  I'm a little head over heels in love with this Self Portrait sweater, Free People Sweater (which comes in 4 colors), and spool accent chair!

I also spotted some fantastic napkins if you're looking for Thanksgiving - a set of 4 with 27 colors options - I'm thinking about picking up a couple sets in either the Slate, Mocha, and Terracotta. They're so pretty!

As for around the beach house, I'm about done with our project painting the stairs.....everything but the treads and I'm hoping we'll have our new pantry delivered by next week so I can get more organized for the school. Storage is limited around here, so this will be an amazing upgrade!

Happy Friday!

Neutral and Navy Living Room eDesign

Anneke McConnell

Hello design friends!  Today's edesign is grounded by a beautiful navy blue rug and surrounded by neutral pieces of furniture and home decor that can be easily moved around as needed.

I'm excited to see more new arrivals for fall and can't wait to share more favorites soon. For now, enjoying time as a family before the kids go back to school is a top priority for this mom of three. ;-)

I have to say the oversized armchair in today's coastal design is probably a favorite. Can you just imagine sinking into that chair with a good book and hot cup of tea?  I never tire of a cozy chair!


Enjoy and cheers to the weekend!

If you're unfamiliar, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale happens every July and Nordstrom stocks new pre-season arrivals and makes them available for up to 40% off (or more sometimes). Craziness! It's the perfect time to stock up on staple clothing items, shoes, handbags, jackets, jewelry, gifts, and more.

You can CLICK THE TITLE of each section to take you to ALL of my picks for that category, but these are the best of the best in my opinion. ;-)

Let's get to it! 


I suggest going through shoes, denim, and jackets FIRST as they sell out quickly, not to mention my fave staple leggings



I hope this helps you guys navigate the sale a lot faster!! There are so many great items selling out quickly, it's hard to keep up, but I'll do my best!  I'd like to invite you to join me on Facebook to chat LIVE about style, furniture painting, book reviews, etc.  Click below to follow along there - it's so fun to interact with you ladies!
