Unique Flooring

With a twist of pattern and pop of color, flooring trends are on the rise adding pizzaz to any interior.  And with Pinterest taking over the world, we love the hands-on DIY projects and “how to’s” especially when you want extra pocket change at the end of a project.  These projects can add up fast so make sure you do your research before taking on such a large task.  Who needs a rug when you have floors that look like these?

*Our suggestion:  painting wood floors is an inexpensive fix but we only recommend painting wood floors when the wood is unrepairable or you have purchased flawed salvaged wood with the intension of painting.  If the wood is in good condition, staining and refinishing the floors add more value to your home and reveal a classic, timeless look.

Southern Football Traditions

Since Southern football tailgates deal with decorating a tent, it can count as design right?  We have been so wrapped up with the whimsical thought of actually putting faux curtains on a tent that we had to share ideas and pictures of what we would call extreme tailgating.

Any native from the South knows that football season is also known as Fall, ha ha.  Most of us get all dolled up in our team colors, whip up some delicious goods and celebrate victories throughout the season.  And others go the extra mile in creating the most fabulous tailgating tent known to man.  With our favorite team being new to the SEC in college football, we had no idea what we were up against.  And no, we aren’t talking about football, we are talking about TAILGATING.  From floral arrangements to white linen spreads, yachts to chandeliers, these football fans don’t live it down especially Ole Miss and Tennessee.

We have to say that the Tennessee Volunteers have one of the most unique tailgates with yachts linked together on the Tennessee River.

Top notch, silver and all.

A tailgating dream…life would be so easy setting up camp.

Note: Faux curtains that hide gazebo poles.

Aren’t these super fun?!  They are a must at our next tailgate.

We are all about showing school spirit but thought these shorts were like WHOA and the grill below is WAY extreme.

Southern Living’s “Vote for Who Throws the South’s Best Tailgate” sweepstake of their top 20 schools with the best pregame parties has ended with the #1 winner will being announced on Oct. 15th.  Check out their top picks on other categories such as most spirited, most traditional, the powerhouses and style setters.

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL???!!!
