The Bachman's Fall 2013 Ideas House...

Time for the Fall 2013 Bachman's Fall Ideas House tour!  It's always a lot of fun to visit and full of lots of decorating inspiration, too!  For those of you new to the tour, Bachman's is a retail floral, home, and garden business well known in Minnesota.  The Ideas House is held seasonally in an old family home on the flagship property in Minneapolis.  You can visit my posts on all of the previous houses by clicking on the icon at the top of my sidebar.  Also, you can click on any photo 
for a closer look!

The theme this time is "An Upscale Casual Harvest at Home."  This time, the home was designed for a couple- she is an event planner, he is a downtown business executive.

We'll start with the porch...

I love this fairy garden in an old suitcase...

Entering the house you are welcomed with a wreath...

The living room has the feeling of upscale casual decor...

Just off the living room, the sunroom is used 
for a game table and console serving area...

Isn't this a great way to hang a label 
on a bottle?

Looks like a fun place to entertain!  
Next time...the dining room and kitchen!

I am joining Be Inspired over at Common Ground...

Until next time...


  1. Linda- I LOVE those tours of the Bachman house. Amazing photos and ideas. Hope you have a great night- xo Diana

  2. I can't get over all the work that goes into decorating that house for the seasons! I see so many things that I like that I never see in their stores, like the napkin rings, candles in the fireplace and that chair in the last photo...really love that! The Bachman's near me never has anything vintage anymore...I sure miss that.

  3. I always love your posts on their show houses, that orange cubby is so fun!!

  4. OMG Linda this was just beautiful. Lovely post, Loved the garden in the old suitcase and the black candel holders outside.
    Can't wait to see some more. :)
    Take care

  5. I could live on the porch and be happy as a clam!

  6. Love you pictures Linda! You always see things that I didn't. I posted a link to you on my blog so my followers can view the photos. I just haven't gotten mine edited.
