Color Crush: Coral

As far as all-time favorite colors go, coral is near the top of my list. It’s bright and punchy and perfectly embodies the cheeriness of spring and summer. It can look a little Palm Beach-y if paired with too many pastels, but it’s so versatile! I have to admit, coral pops up a lot more in my makeup bag than in my apartment, but I’m planning to change that. Ideally with an amazing coral front door (one day)…

Damn, how beautiful is that rug? If I had hardwood floors, I would be all over it! Here are a few other ways to integrate coral into your home.

Winter Home Decor Refresh

Well guys, as far as I’m concerned, winter has arrived. Snow has been sighted within the city limits, they’re already playing Christmas music in stores, and slowly but surely, all the blankets I own have found their way onto my bed. With the changing of the seasons comes the urge to refresh my home decor, and naturally I want to cozy things up a bit. And by ‘a bit’ I mean so many furry blankets and pillows you’ll think you stepped right into Winterfell. I’m really loving a soft, serene palette of white and gray with gold accents, with a hint of rustic wood here and there.

Do you have any winter decor updates you’re dying to make? Also: how amazing is that faux fur bean bag? I never thought I would say such a thing, but I really want that bean bag. Just imagine curling up next to the fireplace on your gloriously soft, furry bean bag, and diving headfirst into a Netflix binge as a winter storm rages outside. I’m pretty sure that’s the Webster’s dictionary definition of coziness right there.

5 Fall Decorating DIYs

5 Fall decorating DIY projects do-it-yourself

This weekend I had big plans for a new DIY decorating project. I had empty wine bottles piling up in the kitchen, a bag of dollar store goodies, and cans of spray paint at the ready. And you know what, it just didn’t happen. Do you ever have one of those weekends where you start out with the greatest intentions and then slowly dial back to accommodate for a few extra hours of cuddles in bed? #worthit

So instead of sharing my own DIY project, I thought I’d do the next best thing and share a few of the fall projects catching my eye this season. Refresh your seasonal decor with these creative yet simple ideas.

Mud-Cloth-Pumpkins-DIY decorating fall

Painted pumpkins are huge this year, which is great because they last so much longer than the carved variety. This mud cloth design idea from Homey oh My is an updated take on the typical fall color palette.

fall DIY wreath craft decorating

Living in the South, I developed a love for wreaths. They’re a homey touch that adds creates a sense of warmth from your guests first knock at the front door. This gold spray painted leaf wreath from Wild Ink Press is elegant but not outdated.

fall pumpkin craft diy thanksgiving

Love this idea to use painted pumpkins as a chalkboard to share your dinner party menu. Thank you Better Recipes! I don’t really want to host Thanksgiving at our house this year, but this DIY almost makes me want to.

fall-wreath-DIY_project

This floral fall wreath project from A Night Owl looks slightly easier to execute than the leaf wreath and adds a nice punch of color to a plain Jane door.

Fall-Pumpkin DIY project

Confession: I love succulents, but I struggle to keep even these durable guys alive. Enter the magic of faux flowers and plants. This pumpkin and succulent arrangement from I Heart Naptime is right up my alley. Plastic is impossible to kill.

.
How do you decorate for fall? Do you recycle the same decorations or do you prefer to refresh every year with natural elements: winter squash, leaves, etc.? One of my friends in Arkansas has been hanging the same wreath on her front door for more than 20 years. It’s not Halloween in her ‘hood until the witch wreath comes out!

Color Crush: Blush

Some may say that pink is more of a springtime color, but I firmly believe – and I’m confident Elle Woods would agree with me on this – that pink is always appropriate. Especially blush pink, which pairs so perfectly with a multitude of colors: gray, jewel tones, even warm, earthy shades. Adding a touch of pale pink simultaneously softens and brightens any space. Embrace the girliness!

Pink lockers - such a a cute storage idea!

Okay, so those lockers may be a little bolder than blush pink, but how adorable are they? Cutest office storage ever! Here are a few other ways to integrate this sweet shade into your home.
