2018-colour-of-the-year

It is that time of year where all of the fashion and home design experts are making their predictions for what will be the hot colour of the year…. Benjamin Moore has already announced their pick for colour of the year for 2018….Caliente – and just like the name suggests this colour is red hot.

More about the colour of the year….

This colour, Caliente, is hot, sexy and has lots of bold personality….this red hue has a touch of orange so it is a bit of a departure from the purple based wine tones. For anyone who is drawn to rich and warmer tones, caliente is Perfect!

The experts already were way ahead of this announcement and started to declare red as the new ‘millennial pink‘ over the summer months….

Red is a great next step from millennial pink….it is bold, a little unexpected in certain places (a red kitchen island….) . It can add a lot of richness to an exterior. It can be both feminine and masculine  depend on how you use it in your space.

How to decorate with the colour of the year…

This colour is so versatile … you can add this colour in a modern space that needs a colour injection but you can also make this work in a country or nautical inspired theme.  A Persian rug in this rich hue is another way to add this tone and some sophistication into any space.

Red Rug

This boho inspired room is so relaxed and the red makes a statement without taking over the space.  this room really combines a mix of styles like modern and traditional along with some great texture.

 Red sofa

Alright this is for someone who is really looking to e bold in their home decor.  A red sofa makes a statement but if you love colour…why not go bold? Red is a great colour for a major piece of furniture like a sofa because it really does work with a lot of other colours…

home-tour-champagne-condo

Take the home tour of this Champagne Avenue condo!

The condo …

It’s always fun to start with a blank canvas – the couple moving into this condo did not have any furniture – so we had a lot of planning to do and of course, a budget to work within. We had 2 bedrooms and an open concept living room space with a kitchen. The colour palette of this condo is a blend of white and shades of grey, so very ‘on trend’ and great neutrals to work with!

The look…

This space was a fun one that really challenged us – why? Well, the couple had a totally empty condo with some pretty contemporary finishes like the high gloss white kitchen, the grey glass tile back splash, all white walls, grey floors plus tons of huge windows.  But their style is more rustic meets industrial … they love reclaimed wood, Industrial lighting, lots of texture and not a lot of colour.  We had to bring all of these styles together in this small-ish space and although a blank canvas is fun it can be hard to know where exactly to start. We started with the master bedroom – not a huge room but it was a great place to start with the furniture and of course the styling. And once we had the look of that bedroom we used that inspiration to move into the main living space….

The secondary bedroom is a smaller room and since they didn’t need another full-time bedroom, we turned this room into a small work space / den to be used if they needed some quiet space to work or extra room to host over night guests.

 

Take the condo tour….

To blend the more contemporary finishes with the tastes of the new owners we decided to work with neutrals as our colour palette and add lots of textures that would create contrast – that way there is ‘common thread’ with the colour palette and introducing the rustic and industrial elements with texture.

We added lots of galvanized metal detail like the kitchen counter height stools.  The coffee table is a painted metal piece, metal antlers and the metal frames on those round mirrors in the master bedroom. We also added textures like rope and reclaimed wood.

You will notice that we angled the rugs in both the living room and den – these rooms are a bit on the long side so by angling the rugs the room appears a bit wider and not just long.  We played with with wall space as much as we could – we think art is a great way to show off your personality and style plus it helps pull a look together. We have some unique pieces in different sizes which keeps the space interesting.

So this is the secondary bedroom, since they didn’t need (or want) another fully dedicated bedroom in their condo – we needed to create a multi-purpose space that was still clean in design.  So we added a small work space – neither of them needed a full home office. And this pull out sofa is perfect for another seating space for reading and a private sleeping area for guests.  We added some poufs as foot stools instead of a coffee table – we didn’t need the bulk and we love the texture of these rope poufs! This art piece is huge and we love it! It really shows off the couple’s fun personality!

So this master bedroom, was where we started with the design….the leather headboard was a great deal and it’s super versatile.  We kept the room looking fresh and bright with the pin tuck white bedding, it’s adds some femininity to the space as well. We love these round mirrors with rope detail but wall space in this condo was pretty limited so we decided to add them on either side of the bed over the reclaimed wood night stands – they look great and they make the room look a bit bigger, too!

Shop the look ….

Love the rustic and simple design of these round mirrors from Wayfair with the rope detail (they are so easy to hang, too)

 

These rope poufs are great foot stools or extra seating when you need it! We love the texture of these poufs – they really work well with the industrial or rustic look.

These metal stools were just one of the metal details we added to the space.  These stools have an industrial look (they are pretty comfortable, too) and easy to store – you can stack them!

This all white pin-tuck duvet added another detail and a feminine touch to the masted bedroom – we love how it looks with contrasting textures like brick and reclaimed wood.

You absolutely mix styles and textures to create a space that is all yours – that’s what personal style is all about,

home-tour-warehouse-loft

This warehouse loft model home is a past project of ours….we blended some of the typical warehouse loft elements like brick walls and industrial lighting with some fun accents of colour.  We love to play with mixing textures and adding some fun and quirky elements….

Loft elements – the ‘expected’ …

Often when we think of a loft style we think of raw materials like brick or concrete, wood and metal.  This loft model suite has a lot of those materials.  The kitchen lighting with an industrial look (above the island), the wide plank hardwood floors, the muted wood grain cabinets, the oversized black trim windows and that brick accent wall….are all seen here in this space.

and the unexpected….

Typically in this style of decor we see a lot of texture from raw materials but we see mostly neutrals – we decided to add some great colour and pattern – so this is the unexpected factor in this model loft.  This rug was a piece that we fell in love with and the bold teal tone is not something you often see in this decor style – that was one of the first pieces we found and wanted in this space.

The teal and the orange tone from the brick wall are natural complimentary colours – so we knew that this would work but it was unexpected.  We sourced out a simple and clean looking sofa in a great neutral tone would be a great canvas for some fun pillows.

We carried this bold colour theme into the bedroom as well for some consistency to keep the whole space looking fluid and therefore larger.  Looking at our inspiration vision e-decor boards – our final product isn’t that far off….

Loft model – take the tour…

See the end results of this model space –

 

 

 

 

Shop the loft look….

This art piece from Urban Barn is a favourite and it looks fantastic in the bedroom – it is a large piece (and we love oversized art) and would look great above a sofa…

 

These counter height stools in metal wire with a white leather seat are actually really comfortable – They offer great seating at the kitchen island but because of the wire detail they don’t look bulky and visually take up space.

Lighting makes a huge difference in a space and this industrial kitchen island pendant from Wayfair – really plays into the look of the space.

 

Metal is a big element in loft decor – we love these metal and stack-able bistro chairs – they are also easy to clean and as they age over time – it just adds character.

Warehouse industrial style is really unconventional and doesn’t really follow any rules – it easily blends with other styles which is just one of the reasons it is so popular….

friday-favourites-deep-purple

Friday favourites for this week we are highlighting some of our favourite deep purple hues. Shades of plum, wine and aubergine are some of our favourite fall colours to work with – they are deep, rich and warm plus they work with the standard golden yellow and orange tones. But they transition well into the cold winter months, too.

Deep Purple Inspiration

You can be inspired by anything – we love the rich and warm colour combination of this bridal bouquet from an Fall wedding.  See how lovely the orange, deep purple and wine tones work together

Photo credit : Classy Petals

This eclectic living room / meeting room adds a bold statement with the plum area rug – the green velvet sofa adds another bold element and the furry mustard pillows really pull the two together.  This room has a mix of different styles to create this eclectic boho look.

Photo credit : my domaine

Yes, you can decorate with deep purple…

When it comes to working with a big statement colour like deep purple you only need a bit to make a statement.  This living room in clean white tones is light and bright but adding this signature velvet aubergine tone chair in the colour adds depth to the space (plus it looks so comfortable).  Paired with the different tones and textures – this colour adds a unique pop to this space.

When it comes to decorating with purple hues – you can always opt for something softer and even something with more of a grey tone.  This bedroom is a great example of grey-purple tones of various degrees – the accent pillows on the bed vary in pattern and shades of purple and the walls are painted in a grey-purple tone as well.  The purple hue is balances out with neutrals like white and black.

Shop …Deep Purple

Here are some of our favourite deep purple pieces for the home…

This vintage finish hand-knotted area rug from Wayfair – is a great way to add this deep jewel tone to your space plus there are many other colours in this rug that you could use as inspiration in your space…

This knitted textured pouf in various tones of blue, purple and even slight touches of red is a great find from Wayfair.  The texture and tones are so rich and this pouf would add a great punch in any room.

A wreath is a great front door accessory but we also love decorating with wreaths indoors too – add them to a front door vignette, gallery wall or as fireplace mantle decor.  This wreath from Amazon is such a great find – we love the rich and warm purple wine tones paired with the herb greens and that texture!

Urban Barn is one of our favourite stores and these stunning geode inspired coasters come in a set of 4 and they are another great way to add this rich tone to your space

 

Pillows are a great accent piece because with literally no effort or mess you can transform the look of your space.  These deep aubergine toned pillows are a great pair to add to your sofa or bed.  This tone works well with all neutrals but also is a great match with olive green, mustard, teal and even millennial pink.

Art hangings are always a great way to switch up your home decor and add some colour! This purple tree print from Minted is a clean and chic piece that would be perfect in a bedroom, living room or entry.  The white matte and frame really let the deep purple tones stand out!

 

Adding just a few pops of this deep (and timeless) tone can really add a warmth and richness to any room.  You don’t need a lot to make an impact!

navy-peony

Navy Peony ….Have you heard about this colour? Navy Peony is one of fall 2017’s hottest hues for fashion and for the home.  Navy blue is of course a classic that never goes out of style but this fall we will be seeing even more of this stunning tone.

Navy Peony….

this colour is fresh and clean….it is a bit lighter than the traditional navy blue.  Navy Peony is a true blue colour.  It works will neutrals (we love it paired with white) but it also looks modern with tones like millennial pink. This versatile shade will be everywhere…

Navy Peony Home Decor Ideas…

We love the depth of this colour but the versatility is also a great feature of this stunning shade. You might think that navy is boring but it can be anything…ranging from classic and traditional to fun and fresh – it all depends on how and where you use it! Mix it with some metallic tones, bold colour, mix and match prints or keep it with the neutrals. Try it in unexpected rooms like a nursery or the kitchen! Here are some of our favourite rooms (right now) with navy peony…

Photo credit : Domino

Navy peony in the kitchen is a huge trend.  This year we saw navy in the kitchen (mostly kitchen islands or lower cabinets) and we love it! The navy island with detail ‘furniture’ style legs makes it look like a piece of furniture.  The white tone is very clean and bright. Some might say this combination is traditional but add some interesting pieces to make it less formal.  These ‘riviera’ stools add a relaxed feel with a bit of a beach inspired vibe.  The simple white and gold pendant lights add some modern feel to the kitchen.

Navy blue in a nursery is a perfect colour palette – navy and white is so crisp and of course, classic. The mix of pattern like polka dots and chevron makes this classic colour combination look fresh and fun, very age appropriate.  This is a space for the baby and the whole family to enjoy! Plus the existing palette can easy transition as your child grows and you can add a secondary or accent colour like green, red, orange or pink!

Photo credit : Tigmi Trading

We love an entry that has some personality – sure it is a small ‘room’ but this space really sets the tone for your home – it is a well used space by those who live in the home and those who visit, so don’t over look that area.  This entry has so much character – we are huge fans of displaying pieces you love and found items.  Displaying artifacts from your travels is a decor style that is truly one of a kind.  Typically display walls are painted in lighter tones but here we see this bold navy wall and it makes a great statement especially with the concrete floors and the wood accents.

We are huge fans of this family great room (and this home tour)! Plus this space goes to show how navy peony can be used as a simple accent and not the main colour.  Here we see these white built-ins flanking the fireplace with the backing in navy wallpaper with a linen-like texture.  We also see in the space some navy pattern pillows that mix so well with the sofa and chairs and of colours the styled accessories and library lights all work together so beautifully in these built-ins – navy in this space really compliments and doesn’t dominate.

 

Photo credit : bhg.com

Again we see how navy peony is not over powering this room.  We see a great balance of deep navy and crisp white and some great ‘in-between’ tones that bridge it all together – the grey and teal hues plus the mix of printed pillows add warmth to the room.  There is a lot of great layering and styling in the space that give it a contemporary feel that is still very cozy.

Shop Navy Peony…

Thinking about adding this hot hue to your home? Maddie is already working on it!

Here are some amazing pieces – we love – in this colour of the moment…

Add a touch of luxury with a navy peony velvet tufted ottoman – this one is from Wayfair, add a tray for some serving surface or extra space for decor.

 

If your look is a bit more farmhouse, you can still add some of this colour to your decor – this navy Milk bottle vase is a great accessory for a console table.

 

 

Add some blue to your walls – not with paint but with art! Add this beautiful blue watercolour abstract print to your home.  This would look beautiful in a bedroom (guest or master suite).

 

Navy peony is going to be everywhere this fall…what do you think of this unconventional choice for the fall season?

love-chunky-knit-blankets

I have to confess that I am in love! I’m in love with chunky knit blankets … I have loved them since they really started to emerge in current home decor.  I love being cozy and snuggling up with a blanket (as I am writing this post I have one of my many throw blankets on my lap …)

Photo credit : countryliving.com

Do you love chunky knit blankets?

I know in terms of trends I am a ‘little late to the party’ but to be honest I don’t consider knit anything to be a trend – I think there will also be a place for these fabulous knitted creations but yes, they are having a bit of a moment right now.

I have to share some of my favourite home decor looks with chunky blankets

Chunky Blankets in the Living room

Photo credit: My Modern Met

This white living room with black and grey accent is so clean and crisp – and this over sized chunky blanket adds so much texture to the room.

Photo credit : All Free Knitting

This big stitch oatmeal chunky knit blanket draped over this sofa is perfect for cuddling and snuggling plus it makes this contemporary tufted sofa look softer.

The chunk knit blanket was seen a lot this year in millennial pink – two trends working hand in hand.  The corner of this living room space is so fresh and feminine in millennial pink, clean lines and the over sized knitted throw is balanced and beautiful!

Chunky Blankets in the Bedroom

There’s no better to place to snuggle than in your bedroom – add a chunky knitted blanket and you may never want to get out of bed again!

Photo credit: Decoratio

Again that classic combination of soft grey and millennial pink – so soft and soothing especially in a bedroom.

Where can you get a chunky knit blanket?

If you are crafty – there are some great arm knitting tutorials that show you how to make such a cozy and chunky knitted throw blanket.  This is one tutorial that I found easy to follow – here

I’m a knitter and my goal is to knit one of these myself – I found this step by step knitting tutorial for one of these chunky blankets on nourishandnestle.com – I can’t wait to make my own!

Not crafty? That’s OK…

You can purchase one!

Here are some of my favourites, found on amazon.com

This beautiful blue blanket is a stunning colour with this chunky knitted texture is available on Amazon.

This white handmade chunky blanket by wool + sea is stunning and available on amazon.

Do you these chunky knit blankets as much as I do??

What is Buffalo Check?

This pattern is also known as Buffalo plaid.  It originated at Woolrich Woolen Mills in the 1850’s. This pattern is traditionally seen in red and black but over time there have been many colour variations.

Photo credit : hm.com

The pattern is often 2 or 3 colour striped fabric creating equally sized large squares (gingham is similar but the squares are much smaller).  Buffalo check had a real moment in 2015 holiday decorPlaid is always a popular choice at Christmas and this pattern fits the style plus with the popularity of woodland inspired decor the pattern is a perfect fit!

Photo credit : Etsy.com

Buffalo Check and Home Decor…

This plaid print works very well when paired with a rugged and rustic look (think ski chalet) but in other colour variations it can also work in more transitional, farmhouse and traditional styles.  Buffalo plaid can be used in many different ways – ranging from upholstery to table settings. Here are some of our favourite rooms with Buffalo check.

Photo credit: Simons.com

This bedroom has a rustic mountain home look with the traditional red and black Buffalo plaid pattern.  Paired with the cowhide rug and shiplap walls – this room has a rugged and cozy feel.

Photo credit : Magnolia Home

Add a touch of country to your walls with this water colour effect wallpaper in Buffalo plaid print – the black/grey/white colour scheme is very neutral easy to work with.  It pairs beautifully with the wood tones and the simple and clean bedding – the style in this room has some mid century modern elements but it works with this check pattern on the wall.

Photo credit : Damask et Dentelle

Pillows in a Buffalo plaid is a more subtle way to add this print into your decor.  Again the black / white/ grey plaid print is a great addition to any space – this is beautiful at a front entry bench, living room, bedroom and this dining banquet.

Shop Buffalo Check

Here are some of our favourite home decor items in rustic inspired pattern…add this print to your space this fall or winter to bring that cozy feel in your space.

100-room-challenge-week-4-room-reveal

Room reveal time! It is now week 4 of this amazing challenge to makeover 1 room with only $100 and I am so excited to show you the results of the room reveal.

Let’s take a look back…..

Remember my extra wide hallway space that was a dumping group for all things kid related?

…and these before photos are showing off the space after I had my kids do a bit of a clean up.  so not the best use of this space.

 

As my kids are getting older and 3 of the 4 are in school – they are coming home with projects and homework … the kitchen table was an OK area to do the work but my 2 older children in particular were quite distracted by the goings on in the family room with their 2 younger brothers.  So that is what motivated me to create a homework station.  This challenge popped up at the perfect time as I really wanted to have this space all set up before back to school.


Let’s take a look at the progress….

I knew this space would be perfect – we don’t need a massive ‘office’ for the kids and I wanted them to still be close by that we could check in on them and they could ask for help. This little nook space is located between my kitchen and laundry room.

It started with a total removal of everything that was in the space and everything was re-homed to a better spot in the house (baseball bats don’t need to be stored by the kitchen)

I then asked around (starting with family) to see if anyone had anything ‘hanging’ around that they wanted to get rid of — I lucked out with a desk.

The desk fits beautifully in the space and it is metal so it is easy to clean (white may not be the ideal colour for kids but if it gets really dirty and cannot be cleaned….it should be easy enough to spray paint)

I purchased the plastic 4 drawer chest at staples (it was about 1/3 of my budget but it is such an important item).  It comes with wheels so it is easy to slide in and out as my kids need items from the drawers.  I designated (using labels) one drawer per child and the top drawer is for shared items like scissors, erasers, pencil sharpener….)

I soon realized that I had some additional wall space in that nook area and that could be used for back packs! The kids back packs end up in various locations of the house and we need a system….so wall mounted hooks were need. I found some great ‘Buddy Hooks’ on Wayfair and I could have opted for something more typical but I thought these were really fun (and my kids love them, too!) That’s $20 added to my budget – so 1/2 already spent!

I wanted the space to have some colour and also demonstrate that it was a kids’ space – we have tons of kids’ art all over the house and some just stored in bins.  So I spent some time with the kids going through some of their favourites…we found some colourful canvases, a papier mache mask my son had made plus a bunch of other items…..I wanted to be able to show off all of their work but there’s isn’t enough wall space for that – so I thought about adding these clipboards to the gallery wall and this way we could switch up their art and work throughout the year!

I like to plan out my gallery walls on the floor first instead of just ‘winging’ it!

These clipboards were about $5.00 each…

See the full details of this homework station transformation…

week 1

week 2

week 3

Time for the room reveal….

I’m so happy with how this turned out! My kids are really excited, too – my daughter jumped right it to use the space as soon as I announced that it was done!

Here are the buddy hooks – in the back pack area – one hook for each child and I added a photo frame with a school photo – so they knew whose hook was whose….

The final budget…

4 drawer chest from Staples                                     $32.95

Buddy hooks                                                                         $20.00

2 clip boards                                                                         $10.00

3 wood photo frames                                                    $4.50

desk                                                                                     came from my parents

chair with pillow                                                               was already in my home just in another room

art                                                                                        already had

kids’ school photos                                                           already had

pencils, crayons – holder                                                 already had

2 file holders                                                                      $9.99 each

wall mount copper baskets                                             $20.00 (on clearance)

Total:                                                                        $107.43

So I’m slightly over budget….but the extra $7.43 I can live with for a space this useful and that looks this great!

A few more photos of the room reveal….

This new homework station is going to be really useful for us and the challenge really helped me stay on track with time and budget….I’m really looking forward to the next challenge coming up in September.


Let me know what you think of this homework station,

stittsville-walk

Stittsville Walk is a community that is currently under construction. We recently sourced and styled the model home just last month.  It is located in a great nook of the city and we love the quaint feel of main street mixed with the chic style of the finishes in this model.

Stittsville Walk – Take the Tour:

These newly built townhomes are perfectly located in this village like setting – the exteriors have a timeless colour pallete with a touch of a modern edge, take the tour inside to see the amazing features and finishes of Stittsville Walk.

We wanted the look to appeal to a younger demographic so we opted for some furniture pieces that suited a first time home buyers but also interior finishes that embraced what’s current without being too trendy.

We love a two toned kitchen but we wanted the look to be light an airy – so we stuck with a classic white shaker style cabinet in the main part of the kitchen.

We then decided on a ‘driftwood’ tone for the kitchen island – this cabinet has a grey-ish hue with a visible wood grain.  The light fixture adds a bit of an industrial element with the metal ‘pipe’ look and vintage bulbs, along with the grey industrial style stools.

The living room is a blend of soft grey tones, cow hide, reclaimed wood and some knitted textures. We didn’t want to add too many bold colours in the space – so just a pop of bright yellow pillows is all we need! A series of three mirrors with wood frames fill the wall space by the sofa.  This living room is cozy but also chic!

This designated dining space suits a mix of modern ad industrial styles.  The Eiffel chairs in white echo the white kitchen cabinets – when we design we love to see common threads throughout an open space to make the connections throughout the entire look.  These chairs are a classic modern element and we love the contrast with the table.  We added some simple small storage with the glass console table and these accessories add some visual interest.

 

Stittsville Walk – Get the Look:

We found these amazing pieces for great prices…let us show you how to get this look!

30″ Bar stools  These come in a bunch of colours – neutrals to brights – we opted for the light grey to keep the space looking very light and clean.
 This 12 bulb light fixture has a bit of a mid-century modern look but if you change out the bulbs to a vintage bulb (like we did) the look is much more industrial

We wanted some grey colour on the walls but nothing too deep, too dark or too blue….what did we pick? Benjamin Moore’s Stonington Gray. It is become one of our favourite paint colours to work with …

A pouf is a great alternative for a traditional foot stool, it is also a good seating option if you are in need. This cream tone pouf from amazon was a great addition in this living room space.

In smaller spaces, it can be challenging to find the right size furniture and we struggled with finding a coffee table so instead we used 2 of these wood accent tables instead.

This cinema light box from amazon is a fun accessory to any space – we love it in the dining room but it would be fun in a den, office, TV space, styled in a bookcase….so many possibilities!

 We love the versatility of Eiffel chairs – they add that classic mid-century modern look to any space giving the whole room an updated look.  We found these white Eiffel chairs with wood legs on Wayfair.

We added another great light fixture to the space – over the dining room.  Because the fixture in the kitchen over the island was so visually interesting we knew the one over the table had to work with the industrial styling of the larger chandelier but it had to be simple.  We found this one – on sale at Lowe’s – we love the simplicity of the pendant paired with the pieces in the room, it has a touch of a scandi-industrial look

We love how this model home at Stittsville Walk came together,

friday-favourites-fall-decor-finds

We know that summer is still here and we are soaking up the fun in the sun but fall isn’t that far away and of course, we love fall decor! The fall is all about adding nature elements to your space and getting cozy with soft textures – we love the harvest theme and of course those stunning fall tones.

Photo credit: Craftberry Bush

So in preparation for one of our favourite seasons we have rounded up some of our favourite fall decor finds.

Fall decor finds:

A definite fall decor must are some pumpkins…we are really loving the look of white pumpkins – they work with a more modern or contemporary style home or anyone who just doesn’t want to dive right into the orange, red and golden tones of the season.  These white pumpkins look great in a simple bowl, add them to a tablescape or style them on a tray or coffee table.

 

Pillows are a fun a simple way to spruce up your decor and celebrate the season or holiday.  again we are loving these unconventional autumn tones like the warm whites and even light blue tones.  This pillow is a wonderful addition – we love it for an entry vignette.

 

We love curling up with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine on those crisp fall days.  We don’t turn the heat on just yet so we wrap up in a chunky knit blanket – this chunky knit blanket is perfect for a bedroom or living room.  The chunky texture adds a lot of character to any space.

We love inspirational words and quotes in our homes, on pillows or wall decor.  This ‘grateful and blessed’ sign is a great reminder for the everyday but it fits perfectly with the Thanksgiving holiday.

Candle light is a great way to add ambience to your space – whether it is a bubble bath, a romantic dinner or just relaxing at home with a movie or book – candles really add soft and subtle lighting to the room.  We love these flameless LED candles – they are very authentic looking and we love that they are safe.

Fall decor is really about embracing the beauty of nature.  Bringing in the tones and textures that we see outside and bringing them inside – this wood dough bowl has a rustic look and it’s perfect for a kitchen island – fill it with seasonal fruit like apples for a simple and healthy snack.

A fall wreath is a must and we love the farmhouse look of this wreath – the mix of neutral tone sand textures is just beautiful and is quite transitional  in style plus this wreath comes with some personalizing options like scent and the message on the sign!

Fall is such a beautiful time of year to celebrate and when it comes to fall decor finds there are so many and we will likely find some more fall decor inspiration through our shopping excursions but for now these are our fall favourites…
