Coastal Interiors: Entryway Design and Decor Picks Under $100

Entryway, Home Blog PostsAnneke McConnell

Hello friends! Be sure to follow along on Instagram and Pinterest for all the behind the scenes, not to mention my new FAVE app Periscope!!

 

When it comes to design, I gravitate toward clean and simple, yet with an element of coziness and blended textures.  In today's entryway design (first shared on Instagram at @CoastalInteriors using LikeToKnow.It's services - sign up to easily shop my designs before they hit the blog).

Like I said above, I love clean lines and uncluttered design.  I do think that special items styled well make a beautiful difference and add character to your home.  I often love searching local antique shops on the surrounding PNW islands for a beautiful piece of coral.  It is one of the few things I collect and treasure, because each piece is unique and they look beautiful displayed throughout our home.  Below are some of my recent finds of mostly under $100 items I find either beautiful, functional, adding to a positive family life, or a great sale this week!  I'm honored to possibly be a part of helping you find a special new treasure or decor item to add to your home this season. These are anything from home decor items, lighting, and kitchen items for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas season.  I love them all!

 

 

Below are a few items that caught my eye as I was searching for design ideas.  That blue velvet settee is gorgeous, isn't it?!

On a personal project note, I am continuing to work on our open kitchen, dining, and living room space at our beach house [series on previous blog] as well as a mini makeover on our kid's shared bedroom. These things never seem to happen as quickly as I'd like, but I'd rather take it in stride than rush it!

Coastal Interiors: Baskets and Blankets for Fall and Winter

Home Blog Posts, InteriorsAnneke McConnell

Hello friends! Be sure to follow along on Instagram and Pinterest for all the behind the scenes, not to mention my new FAVE app Periscope!!

There are also some pretty FANTASTIC sales right now at Pottery Barn for dining tables, home office furniture, lighting, halloween, drapes, rugs, the entryway and more.

 

So, when it comes to fall, it's tough to make black and white decisions about what is my favorite.  From hot coffee or tea in the mornings to the cozy fireplace and candles, paired with comfort foods and family gatherings for the holiday season - I love it ALL. But blankets.....they really have the ability to make a house a home in these cooler seasons.  

 

As a mom of three kiddos, I love spending time with them snuggled in a good chair or the sofa reading books together in the evenings.  I wish I could say it happens every night, but hey....no one is perfect. ;-)  You can bet that this time of year though that I bring out all the fall and winter weight blankets and fill every basket I can throughout our little beach house.  It's a necessity for those morning devotions, evening reading time, Saturday morning cartoons, and watching the waves during winter storms.  Baskets and blankets - they carry us through the season! Not to mention make fantastic gifts for friends, family, hostesses, etc.

 

It's not too difficult to go wrong with a good sturdy basket and quality blankets, but I've rounded up some that have caught my eye this season at various price points.  Whether you love cotton, wool, or cashmere......rattan, wicker, or rope,  I've brought my personal favorite throw blankets (a few oversize!) and baskets that are sure to bring years of warmth and storage wherever life takes you. :-)

Artist Feature: Lucy of Craftberry Bush and Coastal Watercolor Art

Interiors, Home Blog PostsAnneke McConnell

The talent and skill I see in the world of blogging and social media blows me away every day.  When I first began blogging, I was immediately drawn to the talent of other bloggers, business owners, designers, etc.  We all seem to have gone various directions, finding our way and working within the areas we gain the most enjoyment from, all while trying to help those who stumble upon our work and ideas.

 

With that said, it has been a JOY to see Lucy from Craftberry Bush grow in her artwork and really put it out there for the world to enjoy! You can see her beautiful summer home tour HERE.

My heart skipped a beat when she recently shared her watercolor series of coastal inspired motifs. They are SO beautiful and I couldn't wait to share them with you!  I love that she is making her work available through Society6 and her art can be bought as a pillow (which I've highlighted below), iPhone case, t-shirt, mug, framed art, shower curtain, etc.  There are so many options.

Her pillow designs come in sizes 16" x 16", 18" x 18", or 20" x 20" as a cover alone or with a faux down insert included. The throw pillows are made from 100% spun polyester poplin fabric, are individually cut and sewn by hand, feature a double-sided print and are finished with a concealed zipper for ease of care [as described in the Society6 site].

Which design do you love most? Share below or talk with me on Instagram!

Have a beautiful day!
