Favorite 5 Friday: Home Pieces

One of my favorite pastimes is browsing Etsy.

Tell me what you think about these items or share some of your favorites...Find something you want, just click on the name. Please take time to visit these shops to see all their awesome items.

I have been contemplating new decorations. My home is very rustic, with primitive cabin decor. Inside is knotted pine, high ceiling with large beams, and Australian Cypress floors. I have several barn wood cabinets, quilts, and old metal pieces. My colors are mostly barn red, black, olive green that look great, but I'm tired of them. I would love to go more shabby chic with some bright colorful pieces, but I'm not sure if they would look good with the knotted pine walls. This weeks finds pieces that I would like to have for my home.

This wonderful Canterbury cabinet is nice to add a lovely pop of color.

Here are a pic in my home, this is in my living room going up to the loft, you get the general idea of decor. Please tell me what colors you think would look good.


  1. With the stairs and pottery, it looks like you already have the red accents going on. I'd avoid a green that would make it look to Christmas-y. The white table with red accents would look nice.

  2. Great finds... will check the shops too :)

  3. I think if you replaced some of your red pieces with light blues or greens it would make the biggest difference. Be sure to share pictures of what you end up doing!

  4. What great pieces. Can't go wrong with white, especially with the red of your stairs.

  5. Thanks for everyones input. I do want to get rid of some of the red. I will research some more blue pieces. I've been looking a fabrics to make me a new table cloth and valances too. Will post pictures when I'm finished.

  6. Definitely the top one! It looks like it would be perfect for that space and it would add a great pop of color. Plus I just love the cabinet. That's my 2 cents...

  7. I love that one in the top photo!!!


Thank you for reading my post. I enjoy hearing your thoughts. Tisha
