Bachman’s Fall Ideas House “A Transition of Seasons & Styles” September 15, 2011 – October 9, 2011

Guess what?  If your name is drawn, the contents of the sunroom (above) can be yours! No purchase necessary, just enter your name in the drawing at Bachman’s on Lyndale. And Hirshfield’s is giving away four gallons of the wall color 0634 Day Spa.

Decorative doors from the Wisconsin State Capital used in the living room vignette on the right. The coffee table is made from windows and salvaged wood filled with vintage print blocks.

Teaching your little genius numbers, words, and the alphabet would be easy peasy in this pre-schoolers bedroom.

Gorgeous antique armoire painted glossy white with a customized interior. The detailing on the front of the armoire adds to its charm.

Fall tablescape in the dining room.

This room is called the “casual office & family room.” The paint used in this room can’t decide if it wants to be a gray, green or beige, which makes it a perfect bridging color. The saying on the pillow has me thinking:

“When was the last time you did anything for the first time?”

There is so much more to see inside and outside at the Fall Ideas House. It’s always fun to see what, and how, the staff repurposed all the pieces (for sale) throughout the house. I guess that’s why they call it the “Ideas House.”

Bachman’s suggests calling in advance for your ticket and remember they are not open on Mondays and  the last tour slot is at 5:00. I have not run into crowds on my visits as I try and go at the end of the day. If you’ve never been through the house, remember the saying on the pillow, “When was the last time you did anything for the first time?”

Number one question asked of the “keepers of the castle” at the Bachman’s ideas house?

What color is the paint…?

The paint is brought to you by Hirshfield’s and Benjamin Moore.
