It’s been a while since I’ve shared my favourite tear sheets with you but I loved the October issue of Martha Stewart Living so much you couldn’t have gotten me to the blog any faster! Let’s get down to business, shall we? First up I found myself inspired by the burnt orange flower arrangements – perfect for autumn. Next up was the children’s bedroom, where the stylist used spot on accessories to style up the room (not to mention that super sweet wallpaper). Then I soon found myself dreaming of days when I might have a house to take a hallway as lovely as the one shown in the Good Things feature! As well as the rustic-meets-opulent place setting, I also felt inspired to try out the sage popcorn recipe and the DIY bats for Halloween. Finally, I really liked their story on decorating with check patterns – the DIY screen particularly caught my eye. So, tell me what your faves were folks?

    Whoa up. That jumbo crayon gives me thoughts of episodes of Full House. Fun times!

    Wow I love the second lot, orange and taupe is probably my favourite ever combination!

    I adore the table setting — the use of bark as a placemat is perfection. I think I may have found my inspiration for Thanksgiving…..

    i love the halloween bit even though I m not much of a fan of the festivity as per se, beautiful ideas!

    Any idea where that wallpaper comes from in the kids' bedroom. I have been searching high and low to find out. Am wanting to use that, or something similar, in a room at my house…

    @Nutmeg – I'm not sure, sorry. I can see why you like it though – it so fun!
