It’s the first October edition of Links We Love, which is wild and exciting all at once. It really feels like the new season is officially upon us! With it comes a lot of inspiring content from around the web. Here’s what we loved most this week:

This cozy plantation home in Athens, GA is filled with a lot of unique pieces. We really dig the vintage flair!

If minimalism is more your thing, you’ll love this fashion blogger’s black & white abode.

With Halloween just around the corner, you’ll want to stock up on treats! We always turn to Olive & Cocoa for the best of the best.

Fashion month is still moving along, but we admittedly have stopped keeping track of all the shows. Rachel Zoe to the rescue! Sneak a peek at her favorite pieces from Paris.

How did we miss National Taco Day? We’ll be whipping up this recipe we saved from Reese Witherspoon’s blog.

Anyone else choose hotels based on the design alone? Looks like the hotel of our dreams just opened on Nantucket. We can’t wait to visit!

And in case you missed it, our editors selected a new color of the month, we chatted business with some of Charleston’s most creative gals, and we revealed the images from the Decorist DesignOff. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you Monday!
