Home is so important to me. I truly believe that the way your home is designed will impact the way your life will play out in that home. When you walk through the door does your home make you smile or cringe? When you look around are you reminded of your roots, travels & passions or do you see clutter, mess, and unfinished tasks?
A well-designed home is easy and when life is easy you feel happy.
Oh, how we adore the transition into fall! Perhaps the only thing more satisfying than crunching a perfectly crispy leaf under a heeled leather boot is transforming our homes into cozy, autumn hideaways. Seasonal transitions are the perfect time to update the warmth and story of a space. While core furniture and finishes should remain, change out decorative elements like rugs, pillows, window treatments, lighting, and artwork to more seasonably appropriate textures. For autumn, focus on warm tones, natural materials and soft, heavy textiles.
Now's the time to change light, summer window treatments in favor of deep hued, heavy textiles. Dried leaves in a hand thrown vase can mimic the season while adding visual texture to a sideboard or dining table. Add depth to your space with pillows in neutral patterns and subtle fall hues. This is a great opportunity to incorporate tribal patterns and vintage fabrics! Dark, warm wood tones and warm, organic pottery can be added in lighting, accessories, and accent furniture pieces. To really create a dramatic transformation, rearrange artwork in favor of a more neutral, abstract piece. (<<Check out the great work of Ashley Finnemore in this feature post>>). For bonus points, add a vintage rug with subtle fall hues (like this one we love from our local favorite: Passerine).
