If you’ve ever experienced New England in the Fall, you know the vibrant beauty that seems to suddenly appear out of nowhere, transforming busy highways and cottages by the sea into picturesque scenes of color. From gold toned leaves to the comfort of a fireplace to crisp cool nights spent in cozy sweaters, these are the things that make Autumn one of our favorite seasons. So why not invite some of the warmth and magic of the harvest season into your own home? With autumnal colors and natural accents, to decorative pumpkins and more, adding a touch of fall flavor to décor is very simple to achieve.

Bring Nature Indoors

The heart of Autumn decorating stems from the beauty of nature. From pine cones and berries to acorns, pumpkins and leaves, creating a gorgeous wreath or a rustic centerpiece out of natural details is an easy and stylish fall addition.

Cozy Accents

Layering your room in a variety of cozy throws and blankets adds both warmth and texture to décor, fashioning a comfortable fall escape for you to enjoy on those chilly days and nights.

Decorative Pumpkins

It’s not about the plain orange pumpkins anymore! Painted and glittered, golden and shiny, pumpkins have come a long way and can be both a chic and stylish fall accessory to home décor.

Shades of Autumn

Rich browns, brick reds, burnt oranges and golden yellows all lend their part in creating an Autumn inspired atmosphere. Decorative pillows or kitchen linens are a great way to add in unexpected pops of these toasty shades.

Arrange Your Shelves with Style

wallpaper book shelfShelves can be a true pinnacle of where chic meets function… or they can be a jumbled eyesore! One true sign of sophisticated decor is a thoughtfully arranged shelf. Mixing books with framed photos, vases, shells and sculptures is an expressive art form. Your shelves are more than just a handy place to pile books and keep electronics and clutter! They are a stage to set the tone of your space, a place to display your collections and precious memories in an attractive and organized manner. This will help bring your personality to life in the room, and give your treasures a well deserved presentation. If you have built-ins, you are lucky indeed! If not, you can get the look with a tall bookcase or a pair that match, set against the wall and painted to coordinate. Either way, adding a splash of color and pattern to the back of your shelves is a brilliant way to create a dazzling focal point for your arrangement. Below are a few of our absolute favorite looks for well appointed shelves in decor, followed by a few tips on styling your own perfect arrangement!

1. A potpourri of pretty: Each of the above shelves is completely unique but they all have one thing in common: diversity. Mix and match books with candles, shells, framed art and family photographs, small statues, curiosity items, ceramics, plants… whatever you have collected that you love! As long as you don’t overcrowd your shelves, you should be able to find a balance that showcases your style with panache!

2. Arrange, then step back… and Re-arrange: Your shelves can be an evolving art installation, changing as you acquire new things to display, or to accomodate for fun seasonal decor items, or just to refresh the look of your room! Try arranging everything, then studying the overall look before re-approaching the shelf to make final adjustments.

3. Keep a Secret Stash: be honest with yourself about the fact that some things might end up on the shelf that do not necessarily merit being on display. Most of us have a lot of stuff and might have a tendency to toss mail, remotes, receipts, trinkets, keepsakes, etc. onto our shelves. It helps to have an attractive basket or box in your display mix so that you can stash less than lovely items with ease.
