Fall Trends That Are Taking Over This Year

It’s time to get ahead of the game and start preparing for your fall home décor makeover!

The stores are clearing their shelves of summer home décor to make room for fall. A great way to get started is by reading my list of 2018 fall trends!

Bolder and brighter hues are on the horizon for this fall

Blue and Orange what a complimentary combination!

Brighter and bolder are going to be a big hit for fall trends this year.   How do you pull this off with success you might ask? Try pairing this blue hue  with cinnamon and orange, natural woods, and cream. In addition, I recommend starting small with this hue and see how you like it in your interiors before adding more. A few additional items in  these colors I suggest looking for are: candle sticks, lanterns, window treatments, throw pillows and blankets. Stop by my new retail boutique or send me a message if you’d like more help implementing one of these colors to your home!

Add mood with matte black

Ah-ha, another color to keep your eyes peered for this fall! This one can be rather easy to bring to your fall style this year. I love matte black light fixtures and recommend looking for these if you’re wanting to add some matte black this season. The black color adds a dark tone of fall, while lanterns, lamps and lighting add warm hues to your interiors during those chilly days and nights!

Cozy up the bedroom or living room with prints and fur

Colorful pillows and cozy throw

My favorite way to add new style and flare to a bedroom this fall is with pillows and throws!  If you’re wanting a fall bedroom to like you’ve seen in the magazines, mix and match. Bedding sets are on a decline, while mixing and matching colors and textiles are on the rise. By creating your own look you will add a sense of unique style to your bedroom – plus it can be a lot of fun! I recommend trading your white sheets or coverlet for patterns or solids.  Also, if you’re like me and love a cozy retreat, faux fur throw blanket or pillows are a fantastic way to complete your cozy oasis.

From copper to brass

Brass Coffee table adds brightness to a room!

Copper has been trending in home decor for sometime now, and while copper is quite timeless, the trend has recently changed to brass. Although brass is quite similar to copper, it does have a lighter tone to it. Similar to the copper trend, you can add brass to your home décor through furniture accents, and accessories. This is a great way to start a new fall trend in your home.

Smooth and silky velvet

Velvet is a luxurious looking and feeling fabric that you just can’t keep your hands off of. This fabric is sure to be a perfect way to welcome fall into your interiors! The thing I love about velvet is that it doesn’t take much to make a statement. For example, by adding one piece of velvet furniture or a couple accessories the mood of your interior will change. Furthermore, if you’re seeking to add a visual wow factor, a little luxe and a sense of coziness, velvet is the way to go.

Remember, your home and interiors are most importantly about your style and what you like. Just because these are trending, doesn’t mean you need to go and throw out all of spring’s trends. Nor do you need to implement every trend every season. Similarly, some trends you will like, others you won’t, and that’s okay! In contrast, trends are a great way to keep up with refreshing your style and trying new things. Finally, I hope you enjoy some of the fall trends this year, and let me know how I can help you with transforming your home for the fall season.

Best 4th Ever: Dazzling Decorations for your Gatherings

We know you love the fourth of July, so we’ve got some ideas to make it the best one yet! Decorating for the 4th is relatively simple: add red, white, blue and American flags and you’ve got a patriotic home. While that’s true, we’re here to make sure your décor looks clean and tasteful, not cheap and tacky!

Sweet cake pops

Tasty Tribute:

Who doesn’t love a tasty treat? Decorating with candy is a clever idea that’ll keep your guests smiling. We have a few ideas for you on this topic. For starters, use some glass jars or vases (which can be used as décor for all seasons by the way). Next, fill them with red, white, and blue M&M’s or gumballs. In addition, patriotic colored tootsie pops in small metal buckets is another favorite of ours! If you’re a treat expert, you know you’ve got to have both salty and sweet. Try using different sized vases for yogurt-covered pretzels, licorice, and blue candies. Finally, wrap your treat filled vases in a pretty ribbon or top with an American flag and you’ve got yourself a wow-worthy treat station!

Forever Florals:

It’s likely you’re going to be outside for some, if not most of your 4th. Therefore, you can’t forget about adding some outdoor symbolism! This can be done relatively quickly by first purchasing some vases or metal buckets and tubs. Next, head to your favorite floral shop for some red, white, and blue flowers. Then place your pretty flowers near the front door or on your steps, and top them with an American flag to welcome your party guests with great declaration! You can even take this cute idea to your tabletops by using smaller floral arrangements. Here’s a tip: if you’re having trouble finding patriotic colored vases, you can use clear vases you already own and try putting food coloring in the water, thus adding those celebration colors to your décor!

Symbolic Setting:

If you’re anything like us, you absolutely adore a beautiful place setting at the table. Don’t worry, you don’t need to go out and buy all new dishes and tableware to be patriotic this summer. If you have a patriotic colored table runner, tablecloth, or napkins lying around, you can start with one of those items and then work around it. Be warned, there is such a thing as too much red, white, and blue – so make sure you create a good balance.

Layers, contrast of colors, and a centerpiece are the ingredients to a pretty place setting. Place mats are a great starting point. From there, begin layering plates by color or size. If you have plates that are all the same color, you can break them up by placing a cute bandana or napkin in-between the layers. Next, place a small decoration or treat at each place setting. This can be a bag of candy with a flag, utensils wrapped in a pretty napkin, or anything you can imagine! Lastly, you’ll need a good centerpiece. For an affordable route, baskets filled with confetti, flowers, and flags are sure to spruce things up. In addition, lanterns, candlesticks, or vases are also a great way to go for your symbolic centerpiece!

Dazzling Décor:

You have a lot of options when it comes to patriotic décor and accessories – how do you choose? While we believe you can make inexpensive 4th of July décor look cute, we want to ensure your 4th of July decorating looks fabulous! That’s what here for, after all. Accessories are important; they are the little details that bring everything together. Dollar store decorations can go terribly wrong, or incredibly right. Thus, we recommend using them as small additions, not the grand look. For example, rather than purchasing a flimsy sign, be looking for cute chalkboards you can write messages on and add some décor around. You should also opt for a few wooden or metal decorations rather than poor quality lanterns or pinwheels that are likely only going to last you a few hours!

Here are some dazzling decorations we recommend: Wreaths, wooden signs, block letters, throw pillows, chalkboards, candles, wooden or metal stars, patriotic place settings and napkins, and small American flags! As a reminder, not everything needs to be red, white, and blue. Make sure to keep the look clean and tasteful by breaking up these colors and patterns to avoid creating a cluttered look.

Most importantly, don’t forget to have some fun! Decorating and designing for various holidays should be a joy, not a burden. If you find yourself stressed over interior decorating, schedule a consultation with our in-house experienced interior designer and feel all your worries melt away! Ready to get out there and start shopping for your 4th of July décor? Stop by our shop to browse all our unique and high quality accessories.

We want to hear from you! What is your favorite way to decorate for the 4th of July?

Go Coastal! Bringing the Beach to Your Interiors

It’s that time of year we’re heading to the coast for a vacation with some surf and sand. But don’t you know that you can also bring the coast to you? We’ve got the scoop on all things beach house for your interiors. By adding in beachy colors, accessories, and wall art, you’ll feel like you’re already on the beach!

Splash in Some Beachy Color:

First thing’s first, in order to go coastal with your interiors this summer, you need to get the color scheme down. This season, popular beachy colors include white, gray, light blue, cream, and navy! The coastal theme is all about looking bright, open, sunny, and relaxing. Therefore, try not to focus too much on any one of these colors. In order to pull of the beach house look successfully, you’ll need to mix and match and have some fun with it! Otherwise, your project won’t turn out the way you’ve been seeing in pictures. As a result, by paying attention to this color scheme while doing your shopping, your new beach house look is sure to be a success!

Anchors, Starfish, Whales – Oh My!

The coastal look demands that you be more neutral with your colors. However, it also allows you to go big with your wall décor. You should be hunting for adorable anchor pieces, along with whale, ocean, and fish wall prints. Try searching for beachy prints in crisp white frames to add a higher quality look. In addition, shadow boxes with shells and sand dollars are a great way to go! The coastal look has become quite popular in recent years, so you should have no problem finding some unique wall décor.

Throw In Some Fun:

IMG_3856_sRGB
The best thing about throw pillows and blankets is in the name. You simply purchase them and “throw” them in! While we all know you can’t just throw in pillows and expect it to look nice, you get what we mean! As a result, you’ll need to intentionally place your throw accessories to make it look effortless, yet pleasing to the eye. Likewise, by throwing a blanket over the sofa or bed, and adding in a couple of coastal print throw pillows, you’ll quickly pull together the coastal look. Throw accessories are that simple!

Don’t Forget the Seashells and Sand:

IMG_4365
Remember what we said about bringing the beach to you? Adding beachy accessories is a great way to bring pieces of the ocean to you while adding to your coastal theme. For a centerpiece, try looking for glass containers that you can add sand, shells, and a candle to. In addition, a couple beach accessories that tend to be forgotten are roping and baskets. For example, candlesticks with roping and small wicker baskets will instantly add a beach vibe. Finally, another easy idea is to find some cute bowls and fill them with shells, sand dollars, and starfish!
