Nest with Feathers...

I visited another model home. This one had feathers all over.



This wall is faux stone wall.
If you check out Screaming Meme's blog she is teaching faux finishes.



What a darling place mat. I could probably make something like this.


I love getting tile backsplash ideas. One day I'm going to tile my backsplash in the kitchen.


More feathers added to the pillows. Cute!


Here they used two end tables for the coffee table.




I love how they added these copper corners to the tiles. Small details!



Thanks for visiting my home (I wish), I mean my post today!

After I visited this model I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a bunch of feathers. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them but I was in a feathery mood.

That tile floor is great. Feathers huh? I am anxious to see what you do with them. What a crack up, I used to use 2 end tables to make a coffee table...oh, let's see, 30 years ago!! I thought it was because I was too poor to buy one, but hey, I was ahead of my time!

I really like those feathers. I also love the copper pieces in the tile work. Just a little bit makes a huge difference. Thanks for sharing.

I am anxious to see what you do with the feathers. I really like the tile in the bathroom and that little bit of copper really makes an impression.

Hi Brandee, I really liked that model home, loved the colors and all the tile work. Buying those feathers without knowing what to do with them is exactly like something I would do!...I cant wait to see what you do with them...take care, ~Cindy~

Do you think the company that owns this model home would notice if I moved in?

Tricia Anne said...

Hello!
I saw those exact place mats at WalMart today. They were with the Fall table settings. :o) They are so soft! I did not purchase any, we have three curious cats! :o)

Hi, you should come visit me, I have feathers all over the chicken pen/barn! I enjoyed your post pictures. Wow. I could enjoy living in a house like that! But no feathers for me-I have too many feathered friends (chickens) as it is! Have a lovely weekend!

Good Morning Girl,

No I haven't forgotten about you. Busy must be my middle name. No wait, design is my middle name. Your the first one to get to see the name of my new company.

CdesignS ~ the C & S are a loose script. Genius huh? It hit me like a ton a bricks one day while my head was been spinning in circles.

I love the model home. I so enjoy going into furnished model homes. There such a great place to see what's new on the market. And I have to say, I've seen feathers, everywhere! Can't wait to see what my BFF in Arizona comes up with.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love to have a peak at yours every couple of days...but, I get "decor envy" when I do - everything looks so great. It makes me want to start redecorating LOL!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I guess they took the feather theme and just "flew" with it. :)

nikkicrumpet said...

Great home...the feathers are a really pretty touch.

As to how to make the doggies talk. I use a place called Photobucket.com download your pictures...go to decorate...and one of the options are the word bubbles. If you have other questions just let me know...good luck!

Darlene said...

Hey Brandee,
I tagged you if you want to play along.
