Today we are so lucky to have Kim from SAVVY SOUTHERN STYLE here, at StoneGable!  Her blog is a must read for me every day!!! She has a HUGE following... and no wonder! Her signature southern/french style and eye for a bargain combine to be a decor home run!

Thanks, Kim for helping me out and for this great post...

Hello, Stone Gable readers. I am Kim from Savvy Southern Style and I want to thank Yvonne for having me over. After Yvonne asked me if I could guest post for her while she was away I started racking my brain over what to blog about. Yvonne's blog is always full of great eye candy that I know her readers are expecting. I knew not to share a table setting because my oh my no one does those better than Yvonne.

Well, after I tried to not think so hard over it I was just walking through the house and then it came to me. Texture! I can talk about texture. Yes, I know that isn't anything over the top exciting, but most of us are surrounded by texture and we just go through each day without even thinking about it.

Of course baskets add texture like this large vintage market basket I placed in my fireplace for the warmer seasons and filled with some dried hydrangeas which also add texture.

Another large market basket filled with throws and pillows.

I used this vintage basket as a backdrop behind these blue and white jars to add texture.

Just look at your baskets or trays differently and turn them up on their side and place them behind things or hang them on a wall.

And another vintage basket is on top of this armoire in the master. The woven panels of the doors is also texture.

This is a triple whammy of texture. The grain sack, the concrete planter, and the plant.

Another large grain sack filled with pillows.

Demijohns or wicker wrapped bottles are in my kitchen in this little vignette which adds texture to the hard surfaces of the kitchen.

Bread boards and aprons hanging add texture to the hard lines of the cabinets.

Another grain sack and the burlap pillow piled on the wicker.

This bench with rush seat and an added throw in the master.

And a woven tray with a piece of driftwood and a plant for some texture in the sun room.

So now I bet I will have you looking at things a little differently in your home. 

I hope if you will come by and visit my blog if you haven't been before. I'm the crazy blogger that decorates and paints things and does them all over again. 

Thanks again, Yvonne for having me!

Thank you Kim! You DO work magic with your paintbrush that is for sure!!!! You really  should write a book!
 I'm so blessed to call you my dear friend!
