Sneak Peak On Fall Decor

Although I am very sad to see summer leave us, I’m excited for the Fall – the arrival of my first grandchild as well as fall decor & fashion (some really great boots!)

Fall is a great time to transform your home to capture the spirit of the season by adding spice and warmth. This year, take a look at the beauty of nature’s fall wardrobe by using all the colors of the Autumn palette.

When purchasing furnishing for your living room, look for furniture that is neutral and warm in color. Brown and mocha couches work well for all seasons, especially fall.  To create a warm, cozy feel decorate with fall colored accessories. Put an autumn colored throw pillows on your couch.

Colorful candles bring beauty in the seasons’ colors. Even when not lit, candles create a warm ambiance in the room. Fall is about layering and creating warmth. It is about texture.

Decorating Your Condo

Decorating  your condo, or any condo for that matter, can be a very challenging but gratifying experience, particularly in cases where space is often limited. In decorating your condo, the key is to develop a meaningful, yet realistic plan before you start. It is essential to organize yourself in order to maximize your space, but not necessarily compromise on style.

Be Creative and maximize storage opportunities where possible. Wherever you can benefit from built-ins, do so.

 

Bills Built in

Learn to utilize colour to visually expand space. For example in the case of bedrooms, dark ceilings can give a room height, while the use of mirrors can help to make a room larger than it actually is.

Combining materials such as velvet and mohair’s with luxe lighting can connect rooms visually and give them a full and cozy feeling.

Musings – Finding vs shopping

Some call it shopping.

We call it finding. – Because the latter suggests a match, not a purchase.

Finding is discovering new things to love, joining the ones you already cherish.

Styles change, lamps change, rooms change. You switch them up, embellish them, adorn them and create a place for yourself, your friends, and your family.

Your home should be and is as eclectic as you are worldly, bright, and or modern.

It changes and grows with your love, thoughtful design, and the inspiration that surrounds us.

 

Barbara Park Ent Console 62317 RS

And we keep finding, collecting, and sharing with one another…

For the thrill of the hunt, the constant pursuit of beautiful things.

Because the story of your home is never quite complete.

And because design is never done.

Stay on Trend with Home Décor

By incorporating trends you can see a dramatic change in your space and over all home decor.

Bold Colors:

Try adding bold coloured pillows to your neutral coloured sofa to keep your room looking fresh and current. Cushions are more than just for comfort; cushions accentuate your décor colors and bring life to a tired sofa.

Black:

Black gives a space sophistication and drama.

Geometric Patterns:

Scrolled or geometric patterns are on trend. i.e console table or an area rug.

Mid-century Modern:

Inspired from the 80s & 90s, mid-century modern is trending now. For example, sofas on high legs or console tables with hair pin legs. Try a live edge table in reclaimed wood to give your room warmth.

Metal Finishes:

You can mix and match metals in your space. Sometimes chrome can be cold. Introduce warm gold, nickel, and bronze for a touch of glamour. Rose gold is also a current trend i.e. this dazzling mirror frame.

Rustic & Distressed pieces:

Choose a desk or hall table. When placed in a room with modern or traditional furniture, it creates interest and contrast in the room.

Inspirational Pictures:

Art can not only be abstract, floral, landscape or figurative, but also inspirational. Try to put a piece of art with the word ‘LOVE’ to add personality to your space.
