Over Thanksgiving in my hometown of Billings, I got to visit one of my favorite "looking" stores, Raffia (click on the link to check out their blog). When I am there I feel like I have stepped into an issue of Home Companion (RIP). Creative ideas are everywhere--thought I'd share a few. Sorry pictures were taken on the phone so quality is not great (neither are the ones that I take with a real camera Ü). Make sure you click on the pictures to enlarge them and see everything!
Loved the red locker decked out for Christmas. The wall treatment? Old Reader's Digest pages stapled at the top of each page to the wall
Loved the scenes on paper behind these windows. I am thinking of putting a window up and having my kids paint different scenes for different seasons.
This wall treatment has always been a favorite--decoupaged napkins.
Love the Santa hat chair covers, and an ornament sitting on each plate, plus more of the great Reader's Digest wall.
Great green sofa and red bench coffee table, but really wanted to show you the floor treatment, or untreatment. It is the glue stuck from old linoleum floor tiles being pulled up. I once asked hubby if I could glue down old tiles and then pull them up to get this treatment in our new house--he nixed that idea!
Loved the yummy blue cabinet against the burnt orange wall.
Pink and green confection--notice the rough pink beadboard.I want to sit here and have tea--love that birdcage lighting fixture--complete with birds on a wire!
And who wouldn't love a holiday red table and chairs?
Keep yours open this season for inspiration everywhere!
