Style Scouting: Vol. 155

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

This past week I have been getting inspired for fall. So much so that I bought a new area rug for my living room that I have had my eye on for a couple of years. The price went down so I figured since I still liked it, it was time to finally get it.

Along with that I also found this bowl and pillow cover and a matching basket to one I have at a local furniture store. So stay tuned to see how it all comes together.

If you want to get inspired for fall as you are still enjoying summer, head over to Pottery Barn and browse all their Fall Lookbooks – they have 3- Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. I always find so much decorating inspiration in these lookbooks.

If you’re not a Pottery Barn fan, head to your favorite online home decorating sites and check out what’s new. Here are a two more: McGee & Co Fall Catalog and Magnolia. You don’t have to buy anything, but browse just to find new ideas on how to style what you already own.

  1. Quote is by Neil Gaiman
    “The one thing you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can. The moment that you feel that just possibly you are walking down the street naked…that’s the moment you may be starting to get it right.”

      Hi Pam – Love the quote!!! Thanks for sending it to me. I will include it in a future Style Scouting post.

  2. Thanks for the links! Just FYI, the link for the quinoa granola isn’t working.

  3. Like you, I can’t wait for Season 5 of Virgin River…
    I definitely won’t be running a marathon now – age 62 or age 92 (if I live that long). I enjoy walking instead!

  4. Kate @Centsational Style says:

    Lovely links as always, thank you so much for including my shell DIY!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      I love your shells! So pretty and Doable! Hope the chaos from the toilet overflowing is behind you soon. A few years ago, we had that happen with a dishwasher after we had just had the floors redone. :-(

  5. Michele M. says:

    Loved your weekend roundup – that lady who cares for the hummies is a saint. I feed my hummingbirds fresh nectar every day but no way would I have them in my house. But it sure would be neat to have one trust me so much it would stand on my hand or let me hand feed it. That’s so neat.

  6. Wow….this post is full of good things!!
    I love your new rug, bowl and pillow cover…can’t wait to see in your home.
    The fall jacket is so cute..I may have to get that 💜
    Love to browse the online Fall look books for great ideas😊

  7. Hi Diane, I so enjoy your Sunday Style Scouting posts I make time to read them each week. This week I loved the basement apartment redo and Chrissy Ritter’s small apartment. Such amazing decorating skills. I’ve never tried sculpey clay and it looks like it’s something I could do. The shell trinket trays are so pretty. I have a friend who has been making these with mostly oyster shells. I bought one for my DIL and she loves it. My friend sells her’s for $10.00 each and she has started selling at craft fairs.The wooden bowl you recently picked up is beautiful and I love the new rug. I’m looking forward to seeing them in your home. I’m so tired of the extreme heat this summer. It’s 1:15pm right now and our temp is 94 with a feels like of 107!!! I just checked the temps at Lake Murray Shores (where you are?) and you are cooler than we are…89 with a feels like of 96! Being near the water has more than one benefit. LOL Take care and you and Ed stay cool.
