Fall Decorating Ideas

--> Fall Decorating Ideas

This weekend I spent time around a campfire, snuggled in my sweater and enjoyed the crisp autumn air.  Fall has made it appearance; the leaves are changing color and it is time to start decorating your home for the season.
Painted Pumpkins- One of the most iconic symbols of fall is the pumpkin. While it is traditional to use orange pumpkins to decorate your porch, they may not go with your interior décor. If this is the case, you can choose to paint them in a variety of colors from gold to chalkboard. A hot trend this year is to use metallic paint or foil to decorate your painted pumpkin.
Buffalo Check- Plaid patterns are perfect for decorating for the fall. Buffalo check is a large bold block of color, usually in black and white. It is easy to layer this pattern because of the color scheme and visually simple pattern. Add this pattern in cozy pillows and throws. These pillows from Pier One Imports are fun and inviting and would look perfect on your couch.

Unexpected Florals- You can’t go wrong with flowers when decorating your holiday table. While the typical fall flowers consist of mums and sunflowers, why not go with something a little less expected. In this centerpiece, you can see the pumpkin used as a vase for the variety of succulents. Use this as the start of a fabulous table-scape for your Thanksgiving celebration.
Natural Elements- One of my favorite ways to decorate for fall is to use natural elements.  I love to string up pinecones and acorns in a pretty garland for my table and mantle. I found this paper oak leaf garland and Crate and Barrel that creates a great look that can last through many seasons. Drape this on your mantel or banister for a natural, but more stylized look.
Muted Tones- One of my favorite colors of the fall season is Pantone’s Red Pear. It is described as a, “deliciously, deep red, whose luscious depth entices,” it is a rich and decadent burgundy with cool undertones.

Happy Decorating, everyone!

Top 5 colors for Selling your Home

Paint is probably the easiest and most economical change you can make to your house when it is on the market. A fresh coat of paint can instantly change the feel of your space. When you’re selling your home you want to make the space neutral to appeal to a wider variety of buyers.

Gray has been popular for a couple years, and in 2020 it is still popular but much lighter than before. Grey is a great color to use when a house is on the market, it creates a warm and sophisticated feel. With the trend being going towards lighter colors we are seeing white and light creams becoming popular.

Here are the top 5 colors to use when putting your house on the market:
Pale Oak: This color from Benjamin Moore is becoming a favorite color among sellers and home owners alike. It has enough warmth in the gray family to keep it from looking cold and sterile.

There can be many different reasons for downsizing – but moving is probably the most common. Well, I’m not moving, but the older I get the more I get annoyed at all the stuff I’ve accumulated over the years. Does this sound familiar to you? 
In the past, I would move to a different home every four years. And every time I moved, I would sort through my stuff, donating lots of bags to the Salvation Army, Purple Heart and Goodwill. As you can tell, my love of shopping for clothes, shoes and decorative items has always gotten me in trouble.
However, now that I’ve been living in the same house for the past five years, my “stuff” has been multiplying exponentially. Not only is the crawl space under the house filled up completely, but we now have a garage that has no more extra room – especially for a car. And it's migrating to my two spare bedrooms and the closets are bulging at the seams. I'm really tired of the piles which seem to grow on a weekly basis. And eve…

A Relaxing Bedroom Color

Your bedroom should be calm, it should be a place of rest and relaxation. But all too often it becomes a place to catch up on work on and watch TV. While bad habits are hard to change you can still make your bedroom the oasis it ought to be using one simple trick-- paint it blue.

Here are some great shades of blue to use in your bedroom:
