After perusing a number of holiday interiors, we came up with a list of important items to include that will easily help you nail that rustic-chic look in a matter of minutes!

Mason Jars: Most of us already have mason jars lying around somewhere, which makes this item an easy one! Simply fill with berries, branches, greens and more for a natural and rustic accent on any table in your home.

More to Love About Fall on The First Day of October

October has arrived—although we’re not entirely sure how because it feels like September just started. It has been a rainy week here and with it has come cool air. Despite the sudden appearance of October, we’re embracing this new month. We’ve been drinking mugs of hot tea, lighting apple scented candles, and taking our boots out of the back of the closet.

Read on for some of the other things we can’t wait to do now that fall is really here.

Go on Nature Hikes

It’s finally cool enough to go outside without immediately sweating profusely. Take advantage of the fresh air and go on a nature walk or hike this weekend. Foliage season is just around the corner and the forest will be a vibrant oasis.

Spend Time Reading

Reading is a year-round activity, but it is especially nice to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea, a blanket, and a good book and spend a rainy sunday escaping to another world. If you’re looking for an entertaining home decor book, we recommend A Perfectly Imperfect Home by Deborah Needleman. It’s full of great tips and beautiful illustrations.

Knit a Pillow

If you’re learning know to knit, the typical first project is usually a scarf. But, why not go a little wider and a little shorter and make a pillow? Then when someone complements this new decor addition, you can proudly say that you made it yourself.
If you’re a more advanced knitter, a pillow is the perfect project to practice new stitches or techniques.

Decorate With Pumpkins

Who says pumpkins have to live outside? Make pumpkins part of your interior decor by matching them to your personal style. Paint them different colors, cover them in lace, add a bit of sparkle, or leave them as is.

Plaid Everything

Each year autumn stretches its limbs and emerges from the heat of summer, bringing with it crisp air and cool nights.
While each passing season brings along change, fall comes as a refreshing awakening. Old time traditions of apple picking, pumpkin carving, and enjoying a warm beverage are revisited with a renewed enthusiasm.
2015’s fall home décor trends play into this idea of celebrating the past and making it feel as fresh again.

Greys

Grey Home Decor for Fall

Images from LillaVillaVita.blogspot.com, Elle.com, and Brewster.

Grey is a trend that has been seen in fashion for a few seasons now, and it has definitely seeped into the home décor world. Grey has become a fresh palette that is anything but boring. The cool toned cousin of traditional black is the perfect soft color for fall.

Vintage Pastels

Pastel Home Decor for Fall

 Similar to the grey trend, pale vintage colors and textures are becoming the new neutrals. No longer are we confined to taupe, black, and white, the new neutrals come in pale seagreens, blush pinks, and muted indigos.
These color palettes create a romantic aesthetic in a space. Calming yet warm, pretty yet approachable, the perfect feminine design trend that isn’t overwhelming to  a space.

Chunky Knits

Chunky Knits for Fall

Knits have always been a Fall/Winter classic, but this year the knits are bigger than ever. Larger than life textiles are making their way into blankets, cushions, and wall murals.
The huge textures are taking this classic pattern and reviving it in a modern way that  embraces the  history of the knitting technique.

 Rustic Textures

Rustic and industrial home décor has been big for a few seasons now, but it goes especially well with fall color palettes. Warm browns and honey-hued golds match seamlessly with the changing leaves, gourd center pieces, and a bowl of freshly picked apples.
Whether you prefer a more polished Edison bulb, or a weathered metal sign, this trend has something for everyone.

Serve food that showcases the summers best! In season vegetables and fruits such as corn, watermelon, blueberries and strawberries makes sure that your food is perfectly ripe for the picking. Include refreshing cocktails to beat the heat and don’t forget about the little one’s! Filling an ice bucket with popsicles is a great idea for kids that can easily be replenished as it gets low. Finally, make sure that you are always opting for ease. Adorning your food with a stick makes for both easy accessibility and easy clean up. Remember, finger foods will make your summer entertaining schedule much more enjoyable to handle!

Décor:

Have fun with your décor! Although your party or event will most likely be outdoors, incorporate elements that will still make your party special such as an elegant tablecloth or brightly colored pillows. Decorating with items that serve a double purpose is also something to keep in mind. We love how Devon Rachel showcases above a sweet Hawaiian Soiree that uses fans for the table setting but that could easily help you cool off from the summer heat. Homedit.com also shows how you can use pretty blue mason jars filled with citronella to both ward off bugs while providing a stylish table accessory.

Extras:

Top 5 Spring 2015 Trends for the Home

Home Decor Trends to Try This Year

Today marks the vernal equinox which means Spring is here! Despite the actual weather calling for snow flurries here, we are delighted about the prospect of warm weather and bright days ahead. We are also giddy about all things new in color, fashion, and fun trends for the new season. Here is a list of our 5 favorite design movements to try this Spring.

Bold Blue

Marsala was declared the color of the year, but we have to say that bold blue is stealing the show. Rich Mediterranean blues are adding a regal tranquility to every room of the house. From accent walls to furniture, and kitchen cabinets to accessories, blue is a major trend in home decor this season.

Industrial

Inspired by chic lofts, artist studios, and the juxtaposition of finery with streamlined modern spaces, industrial decor is a contemporary trend to watch. Lighting, in particular, designed with a utilitarian feel that has been adapted with interesting finishes and unexpected scale, is adding a refined beauty to decor. The trend extends to furniture and wall decor, with sheet metal, steel, and exposed rivets creating drama.

Beautiful bathrooms featuring free standing tubs are giving us bathroom envy this year! Whether featuring modern lines, vintage stylings, or a transitional mix of both, some gorgeous tubs are taking center stage these days. What a beautiful spa-like decor idea for those who love to take baths and have the space for a tub that doesn’t double as a shower.

Warm Metals Copper

We love shiny things! Metallics have been captivating home decor and the trend continues to prosper this season. Shimmering gold, warm copper, and beautiful brass bring a touch of luxury to any space, radiating the light of the room. Pendant lamps, mirrors, furniture and wall decor, even sinks and hardware are all benefiting from the beauty of metallic finishes.
