If you remember,
I shared photos
of the Bachmann's
Idea House last fall.
(Bachmann's of Minneapolis, Link)

I was lucky enough to
attend the opening
of this year's
Fall Idea House
and took many pictures
before my cell phone
camera battery died
|Gorgeous fall foliage filled window boxes.|
So many clever ideas
at the Idea House.
|Casual fall picnic table set up for a gathering on the front porch.|
My two favorite rooms
were the powder room
and the dining room.
Pay special attention
to the balcony of the dog's
bedroom upstairs. OMG,
that's all I can say!

|Close-up of the plain drum shade made into something cool |
with twig balls and dried eucalyptus sprigs.
|Living room mantel arrangement.|
|Coffee table made with an assembly line roller section.|
|A vintage aluminum and wood optometrist's desk is converted |
to a make shift bar.
|Small round kitchen table w/room for storage. A galvanized storage drum.|
|Fall arrangement inside the window frame.|
|Wire pails for storage in a tiny space.|
|Natural cork covered walls.|
|Sorry the lighting is poor. It was 6 pm and the sun was very bright!|
|Diapers make up the three hanging sacks above the changing tables and they are labeled with|
nothing other than silver safety pins.
|Yarn and nail wall sculpture.|
|This is the dog's room. A little table set for two with all the perfect touches.|
|Dog bowl stool turned into wall sconces.|
|Blurry photo of lion's leg table flipped and upholstered to become a dog bed fit for his royal canine highness! Felt pad stickers were added to the top of each leg to continue the dog theme with the paw pads.|
|Puppy play area through the screen door. Complete with bone-shaped swimming pool |
and bone-shaped and topiaries. Fresh wall-to-wall sod.
|Puppy hop skotch and sand box for hiding bones. Too cute!|
|Silver dog bowls have round mirrors added to become wall art.|
Hope you have enjoyed
the little tour of the Idea House.
They have this home decorated
for each season so if you are ever
in Minneapolis, be sure to check
their website for the showhouse
schedules. An inspirational visit
every time you go!
