The crisp autumn air, the leaves starting to change and the days begin to feel much shorter. Now that October is over, we find ourselves almost a week away from Thanksgiving. I wanted to share our living room mantel, in which I’ve decorated with fall fiery leaves and pumpkins. I like to decorate with an autumnal theme, allowing us to enjoy for a longer period of time, as early as September all the way through November. Although I am itching to begin decorating for Christmas, but I will resist the urge.Read More
Summertime to me is all about bright colors and the warm sunshine. The interiors switch from heavy textiles to light throws for the furniture. It’s all about bringing the indoors out and enjoying the time in the sun. Of course it doesn’t hurt to get a little tan during all these either. I hope you enjoy my collection of summer fun below.
The next few months are going to be full of all things fall and pumpkins, so I wanted to pay a homage to summertime. I am going to cover a few of my favorite trends from the season and how you can incorporate them into your home.
Bright hues of decorative pom-poms & tassels were all the craze this summer. The neutrals of the straw bags are perfect against the colorful yarns. Poms have also made their way into home decor seen on throw blankets and playful accessories. Please check out this fun article from Apartment Therapy on "Trend Report: The "It" Decor Item We're Seeing Everywhere" showcasing all the ways you can incorporate pom-poms in your daily life.
I've noticed wooden beaded necklaces have become more popular as decoration around the home than a piece of jewelry. I absolutely love these and I want to make some for myself after reading the article linked below written by Melissa from Brown Dog Vintage.

Who doesn't love coffee table books?! Said Nobody EVER!
My passion for design never stops even on vacation. To my surprise along our journey down king street in Charleston, SC we noticed Mitchell Hill it looked like a store we couldn't pass up.
Abstract & Geometric forms are all the craze right now.
Patterns & Colors around every corner.
Transforming traditional chair forms & re-upholstering the piece with high contrast textiles. The pillows are also beautifully showcased with one larger square pillow and a small lumbar support. When deciding on throw pillows for your space, one must first know there color scheme. Pillows are always best when the scale of the pattern is different than the one next to it. Mixing with colors & texture brings an added interest to the seating arrangement.
Remember those tips next time you find yourself staring down the pillow wall. Questioning yourself on if you need another pillow or not?! We all do it!
What is your craziest must have when you find yourself in a home store? I have to pull myself away from the coffee table books & throws. I believe you need a different throw for every season! It's almost time to get the fluffy fur blankets out, yay to Autumn near.

During our vacation in the low country one of our stops was in Beaufort, South Carolina. One day we decided to take the car for a drive and see what we could find. We discovered many beautiful 19th century homes but one in particular stood out from all the others. This house has earned the nickname "The Castle" due to the nearby river flowing alongside the property resembling a moat. One can only gawk and imagine what the interiors must look like in this twenty-three room mansion and the amazing views held from each of the seventy-nine windows.
