Weekend Reading

November 1, 2013

I took a walk with my neighbor yesterday, it’s a weekly ritual of ours. Around the corner from our homes is this beautiful tree filled with autumn colors, I had to return to capture it! We’ve enjoyed the most amazing weather here for weeks, blue skies and warm afternoons with this great show of autumn color, I don’t ever want it to end.

    Hi Kate, these week end reads are my favorites. I can sit down with a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy at my leisure without worrying about interruptions from anywhere or anyone. Wonderful. Thanks.

    I love your weekend reads!! I always check them out first thing on Saturday!

    I went to the BHG website looking at your coffee colored items –and I wanted to find the color palette page that is in the magazine each month (I wanted to find the coffee page with the colors names) do you know if they are on the website?

    Thanks again for all the great info on your blog

    I wish I could get the source for you Kate, I’ve inquired at BH&G before and they don’t keep sources on the older mag features but check out the Gus Modern Jane sofa at All Modern, it’s very similar:

  11. Awesome photo of the tree with the changing colors. I don’t get to enjoy the fall foliage colors very much in Florida but I do enjoy the season when the yellow Tabebuia trees are in bloom.

  12. I love the coffee inspired palette. I tore it out of my BHG and put it on my inspiration board!
