My Friend, Icely's Place.

I wanted to share with you one of my good friend's home. She has talent and great taste. Icely, yes Icely is her unique, beautiful name, is really into Shabby Chic. She decorated for Fall with these great, soft, white and pale blue colors. Who knew you could decorate with shades of blue for Fall. She certainly did, and it looks wonderful! Very Chic....Shabby Chic!

I love this whole table centerpiece! Burlap runner, robin egg  blue acorns in the branches. Adorable ceramic birds placed on candle holders.Cream glass pumpkin and gourd, birdcage with lit candle, a random branch, etc. etc. All placed in this wood shadow box! Awesome!

Real white mini pumpkins decorated with vintage ribbon and buttons. Oh and notice the great silk fabric pumpkin with a cork for the cute! Icely made and decorated these pumpkins with total Shabby Chic skill!

Here's some traditional orange.....Fall leaves with a pumpkin and gourds, berries placed in a old vintage Coke Cola bottle crate! So creative!

I love the monochromatic theme of the fireplace Fall decorations. Icely kept it simple and sophisticated using colors that were on the same color pallet. A log tealight log, that her good friend (me) made for her is the center point of the mantel, along with the Fall banner she made from burlap and twine. The vases filled with tall dried flowers flanking the mirror makes for an impactful and dramatic design. Love the basket filled with a variety of pumpkins and pine cones. A vase filled with branches and lights and acorns gives this fireplace whimsy.

Here's a closer look. Cute owls to left and right continue the whimsy. Candles and acorns finish the, love, love!

Icely made this wreath with feathers and cream burlap. Two adorable birds made out of sheet music holding a  Fall banner. Lovely and unique. I hope you enjoyed these ideas from Icely's home. She really thought outside the box with the blue and incorporated her gifts and talents in making homemade items. Hope you were inspired and have courage to try something new. Go be creative!
