Happy Halloween, tater tots!
May your evening be full of tasteful, clever and Pinterest-worthy festivities.
For all those times you invite people into your home and they insist on imposing their design opinions on your living space.
(I, for one, would never impose in such a way.)
Okay maybe once. Okay on occasion. Okay every time I enter someone’s home. Or office. Or retail space. Or public bathroom.
I nearly spit out my chocolate cream pie last week in Idaho City when I overheard a young couple talking about the camo themed wedding they had just attended. “The bride had a camo sash and all the guests wore camo accents” she gushed.
I imagine the spectacular sight looked a little something like this. The social event of the season, no doubt.
Then suddenly and seemingly out of nowhere (perhaps because it blended in so well? Gaffaw, Gaffaw) camo appeared everywhere in fall fashion.
I immediately found myself wondering whether or not this print would translate well to interior trends. There are whispers of imagery sprinkled throughout the web suggesting that I am onto something. And love it or hate it, I see big, square, fluffy down-filled camo accent pillows in Suite Potato Store’s future…

Canary yellow! This conjures up all sort of possible combinations. The yellow accents could just as easily be a shade of florescent pink to be used in a girls room. Houzz
I’m swooning over these Lima-bean-green chairs. I am very on board with camo as a detailed accent (displayed in lampshade.) It’s not the first thing you notice when you see the room but it makes second and third glances more interesting and dynamic. Suite 106 Blog
How would you incorporate camo print pillows into your setting, you ask? I was thinking a little something like this:
From Idaho to Colorado to Utah to New Mexico and back again; a constant and relentless stream of blazes have lured Special Man Friend off our shady porch and into the desert so many times that I have almost stopped asking ‘hey, WHERE’S THE FIRE?!” Almost. OK I still ask.

Despite our despicably short and sparse R&R days, we have still managed to squeeze in every morsel of summer-in-Idaho goodness when he gets to come home.
and then there are the Special Man walnut waffles.
And lastly – the ultimate act of chivalry – showing he still thinks of his Suite Potato and her style whilst battling the forces of mother nature….
A beautiful, bleached, perfectly-intact deer shed.
Naturally, i found a new home for him immediately.
Talk about living on the edge. You think fighting fires is scary – try sleeping under a 6-point, poorly secured deer shed every night.
I kid, I kid.
It’s well secured. Isn’t it? Wait, is it? What if it’s not. I don’t know. Now I’m not sure. I should go check. I’m going to go check.
Stay safe and cool out there, tater tots!
