Decorating with Owls

Posted by on Sep 30, 2013 in fall, fall home tour | 12 comments

Please tell me that at some point you’ve been able to go to Anthropologie?!

This summer, I had the great pleasure of spending some time in the Anthropologie in New York City.

Actually, a lot of time…

…I had 3 teens girls with me. 🙂

And, while those girls shopped…

…and giggled…

…and tried on stacks of clothes…

…I gathered ideas.

Decorating with owls

And, did a little shopping myself. 🙂

Decorating with owls

I had already bought this great owl print from our local drugstore.

So, I knew that I wanted to use owls in my fall decorations.

 So, when I found this tiny calendar filled with owl pictures,

I had to have it!

When I got home, I cut the calendar apart and hung the pictures from a string with tiny clothespins.

And, notice the owl paper that I attached to the back of my hutch with glue dots?

That was another New York City find…

…in the Paper Source.

Another store that offers ample inspiration!

I knew it would make a great backdrop for my white dishes.

So, there are a few more detail of my fall decorations.

Life to the full!

  1. Loving the owl paper for backing in your hutch…that just made it! All the different textures and objects keep it from being too cutesy or overdone. The black silouettes add the punch of wow. It looks so pretty and ready for fall festivities!

  7. I love your paper decor on the hutch! I am totally going to steal that idea! It’s time to redo my hutch for fall. Time to put the aqua and yellow away for a while and bring out the amber and emerald and chocolate and gold. Great job! And thanks for sharing with all of us.

  8. You are an owl maven gal. Love them all, especially that paper on your hutch. It’s perfect on the background, light, pretty. I’m very envious of all your owls, you’ve got quite a collection going there.
    I have one owl I bought at HL a few weeks ago. Guess retail places know owls are popular as prices keep going up on them. I love the ceramic owls, will have to check HL tomorrow when we go to VA hospital for hubs VitB1 shot and his flu shot.
    Well back to putting away clothes from summer, think I need to get a big box to put rest of mine in. Not my favorite job, how can we know what clothes we’ll need for next few weeks?Our weather likes to play with us, up and down, rainy, cold, windy then Indian summery days. After living in climates like this for so many years you’d think I’d know but every year seems to be different. sigh. Ah well have to go find something to put all this stuff in til I get the box.
    Hope you have a great week.
