One of my favorite days of the year is when I decorate my christmas mantle. I try to do a little different look each year, and it’s always fun to pull it all together. This year, I felt like we didn’t have a fall season, so I tried to hold out as long as possible, but still ended up decorating in mid-november.
This year, I went for a more colorful and whimsical theme, instead of the more traditional look that I normally have.
Sometimes your house needs a little something new. But we don’t all have the time and money to do a room makeover whenever we feel like it! So how do you refresh a space without a huge overhaul? Here are 6 quick and inexpensive ways to update your home:
By the end of August, I am always so excited to start putting out my fall decor. I pretend to have an excuse to decorate so early so that I can take photos for my blog, but I would probably do it at the same time regardless of the blog. It’s just fun to refresh things and know that change is coming!
I’m not totally happy with the decor and I think that I need to add a few pieces. I try to be really intentional when shopping for decor these days, so that I don’t end up with a ton of stuff that I never use. Now that I have the spaces set, it’s easier to plan just where I need to add a few things. Right now I’m thinking that I need a little something more around the fireplace and some more fall colored textiles for the dining table and in the living room. I’ll keep y’all updated with what I find!
Fall is just around the corner. Can you smell the pumpkin in the air!? Its so fun to update your home for fall, but sometimes fall home decor can feel really cliche. How do you make your home feel warm and cozy, without going overboard?
Here are 4 updated ways to transform your home, that don’t take a huge amount of commitment.
I realized from my “loving” pinterest board, that I have been pinning tons of images with the color terra cotta in it lately. The color has been popular for the last year or so, but as we transition from summer to fall, it’s such a pretty color to add to your wardrobe or home!
The warmth looks so pretty in interiors, and makes plants and other cool tones pop. I also found some really pretty stationary that feels so new and sophisticated, instead of the same old blush pinks.
For apparel this color can bring a lot of flattering warmth. I love pairing terra cotta with more neutral pieces for a pre-fall outfit. It’s also a beautiful color for lipstick or blush as we transition to fall!
