Hey y’all, whose ready for fall? ♥️
I started decorating for fall yesterday and I’m absolutely obsessed with my fall finds this year. I still have an entire storage container of fall decor to bring down from the attic this weekend (meaning my husband needs to get the storage container down from the attic 😉). I’ve been collecting pretty fall decor for years and I find it therapeutic decorating for each season. Interior design is a strong passion of mine and I’ve always had an eye for details. Fall is a season filled with adventure and new beginnings. After the emotional year we’ve had it’s nice to cozy up to fall throw pillows and blankets and to pick some pumpkins. It’s nice to focus our attention on something positive and simplistic. I NEVER drink coffee and I actually am not supposed to; I was born with a stomach ulcer and it went undiagnosed until I was twelve years old. I lived with stomach pain and issues for years before feeling relief, which has made it hard for me to drink coffee (caffeine makes me sick). But, the other day I just needed a little pumpkin spice in my life. As soon as I drank an iced pumpkin spice latte I knew fall had started for me, regardless of Labor Day still being days away. For anyone wondering, you can start celebrating fall and decorating for the season whenever you’d like. There’s no rulebook, but I usually don’t decorate until Labor Day (this year I just couldn’t wait).
When I worked in fashion retail my favorite aspect was changing mannequins and designing displays. I’d spend so much time on every little detail and I’d feel proud after creating magical moments through design and styling. I believe that your home tells your story and through your story memories are made. To some, an accent chair is just a chair, but to others (people like me) a chair is where your toddler first learned to climb, or the place you sat down to try on your favorite pair of shoes. Every piece of decor and furniture in your space holds memories…good and bad. A store is made to look beautiful to sell you a vibe and a lifestyle, but your home is made to look beautiful to create a vibe and a lifestyle. Who are you? What does your style say about you? I’m a farmhouse kind of gal but I also love luxury pieces, which is a really cool, beautiful combination. At the end of the day I like to be cozy with a glass of wine and feel happy and at peace in my space. Even when I decorate for fall and the holidays my decor reflects who I am and goes with my home’s personality. I have only just begun my fall decorating, but it’s beginning to smell like pumpkins and crisp leaves in my home. I’m hoping to have Andrew bring the rest of my fall decor down from the attic tomorrow, which will fill my weekend with designing and styling. Here’s a little sneak peek at my fall decor and I promise there will be so much more to come…✨
