Autumn Baker's Rack

A couple of months ago I treated you to my Baker’s Rack Redo project, something that I took on as therapy while Mr. O-P was in his final days. I've been enjoying that Baker’s Rack so much ever since that I decided to use it as a focal point to decorate with each season.
Often holiday decorating can become a bit overwhelming. This no longer need occur if you choose one focal point in your home, decorate it simply for the holiday, and leave it at that.
You'll be treated to a lovely change a number of times a year, and have something that's seasonally appropriate.
I have an open floor plan, so the Baker’s Rack is one of my main focal points. It’s a piece of furniture that I absolutely love, and have had since I was right out of college. It was one of my first large purchases (Large in size and money!) and I have been in love with it ever since.
It has been in a kitchen, on a covered porch, in the living room, bedroom, and now it's on the fringes of the kitchen and breakfast room.
Despite the fact that it is probably no longer “in style,” I love to look at it, and love that it's a showcase for some of my favorite pieces. As you all know, I do have a lot of dinnerware, but I tend to view it as not only a way to set a pretty table, but also as home d├ęcor to display and enjoy.
I like to change things up for the seasons so I can enjoy everything that I have. If you like dishes as much as I do then you should do the same.
When you last saw the Baker’s Rack it was very serene with whites and greens. I started taking a few pieces away, and dug around to see what I had in fall colors. I was actually quite surprised at how many different things I had in orange. I started putting things in place finding that very few pieces needed adding in order to change this into an early fall display. Stay tuned for more posts as it transitions from fall to Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Bakers' racks are out of style....I didn't know that! I wish I had a place for one, because I think they are fantastic! Maybe open-shelving is the new trend in baker's racks. Your dishes look lovely, and your idea of choosing just one focal point for seasonal decorating sounds fabulous; but I need lots of focal points around my home, so I'm a!

Happy Weekend!
