Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Farmhouse Decor

For the last week, my newsfeed has been blowing up with posts about the #NSALE AKA the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  This is a HUGE epic sale that happens just once a year when all the brand new fall merchandise including clothing, beauty and home decor is discounted up to 40% off before it even hits the floor.  Pretty crazy right!

So I’ve decided to officially hop on the bandwagon and share my top 10 favorite farmhouse decor items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  But you’ll have act quickly… the sale only lasts through August 6 and items are selling out all the time.  If you think you might want it… you might as well buy it because it’s FREE shipping.  Prices will be shooting back up on August 7.

5 Ways to Style a Tobacco Basket

How To Decorate Tobacco Baskets

Lately I’ve been seeing tobacco baskets popping up all over the place.  They can be a great way to incorporate farmhouse flair into your home.  Even if the farmhouse trend isn’t your thing, it can serve as a way to incorporate natural wood elements into your interior design.

If you’re looking to purchase the real thing from an antique store, it’s going to set you back a couple hundred dollars.  Maybe you can snag one at a barn sale or a flea market for less.  But lucky for those of us on a budget, you can find replica tobacco baskets from Hobby Lobby, Amazon and Decor Steals from time to time.

Once you get your hands on one… how do you decorate with a tobacco basket?  Here are 5 simple ways you can style a tobacco basket within your home.

  1.  Hang on a wall. 

I’d say this is the most popular way I’ve seen tobacco baskets used.  You can hang on a wall just the basket itself to keep it simple.  Or you can attach some faux florals or include multiple baskets to display as a form of wall art.

2.  Use as a tray. 

Looking for the perfect focal piece for your coffee table?  Why not use a tobacco basket as a tray to hold a few decorative items like books, candles and flowers.  You can even make it more practical by adding in your TV remote or pretty coasters.
