november styling {owls}

I cannot believe that it is November and that the weekend of All Hollows Eve has ended. I am really hoping that my pumpkin keeps for a while, as it is carved with an owl, and I have a mild obsession with anything that hoots. Maybe I will just have to find some owl décor that keeps through the year. Possibly a small statue for my coffee table.....

Or an adorable yet simple print...

What is on your November decorating or project list?

You should check out High Street Market on Etsy. She has a few amazing things right now with owls - I just bought the cutest owl trivet. There was also a painting and some statues as well as some other things.

Thanks for the sophisticated, subtle examples - I've seen owls all over lately, but mostly plump ceramics in retro colors, or cartoonish versions printed on fabric. These pieces could stay in a room for years!

I, too, am a little obsessed with owls. They are such mysterious and beautiful creatures. I came across your post this morning while browsing interior design blogs and your take on interior décor is exquisite.Could you include this love for owls into your window treatments? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.

I'm hopefully just about to purchase a yellow settee like the one in the second picture- fingers crossed! I have so many things on my Nov. list, I wouldn't know where to start- first thing up is some hallway wallpaper and an upholstery job on a pair of chairs-I can't believe it is already November- time flies!!
I'm loving the owls too- a little owl statue in the house feels like having something wise watching over it:) Have a great week!

I have the same obsession. I love owls. See my most recent blog posts. Although these would be cute in kids rooms I love the subtlety of your two images for the adult spaces.

wow, i love both of these images... loving that second one with the bright yellow. I have a lot of grey in my room and want to add a color like that for a nice pop!

concrete jungle - I completely agree with you the blue and yellow are pretty bold. Lovely

Yes owls are so cute. Growing up in Sweden we were surrounded by lovely owls in our forests.
Though they have declined a little on the scale of trends, I am still very into them!

Yellow and blue are my favorites color combination. There is something about the contrast that it creates

Megan said...

You can never have to many owls... and if you could, I would be getting close! Check out my blogpost on all my owls.
