It’s still August, so you’re certainly thinking, fall color palette? Are you crazy? It’s still 90+ degrees outside. And we understand, we really do, but sometimes dreaming of cooler weather gives you a nice reprieve from the scorching summer heat. Which is why we’re getting inspired to feather our Fall nest!
When it comes to living room furniture, the coffee table gets all the glory. Aside from the sofa, it’s one of the first items people look to purchase when they’re setting up house for the first time or upgrading from the hand-me-downs of college days past. It’s easy to understand how the much smaller side table might be easily overlooked, but we’d argue that it’s just as important a player. These flexible pieces of furniture offer a place to set a drink, provide storage, and, depending on the style of the table, pinch hit as an extra seat or a mini-bar.
Even if your side table isn’t front and center, it’s still worth taking the time to style it like you would your coffee table to create a balanced space that reflects your personality. Read on to find out what our favorite must-haves are for a well-styled side table.
Because we shoot in real homes, we are not always at liberty to paint the walls. In those cases, we have chosen paint colors that best match the wall color in the photo. Please be aware that color may vary due to various light conditions, finish and other factors. Therefore, it’s always a great idea to test a paint sample on your wall first. We use Benjamin Moore paint, but most paint stores can match any color.
Every year, Southern Living pulls together a talented team of designers to build a home from the ground up that exemplifies southern style. The stage was set with the location of the 2014 Idea House: Palmetto Bluff, smack dab in the middle of Carolina Lowcountry. This year’s dream team, Interior Designer Suzanne Kasler and Architect Ken Pursley, was up to the task. Together, they created a lighter, fresher approach to living. The storybook vacation home, surrounded by pine trees and nestled beside a lake, is complete with a back porch that offers unrivaled views of the sunrise. We got together with Suzanne to talk about the design and what inspired her.
