Whether you are refreshing your home this fall to “wow” prospective buyers or holiday guests, embrace the new season with warm hues and beautiful textures that can create an inviting palette to your home decor.
Start with the Front Door
Curb appeal makes the best first impression to create a welcoming touch that carries through into the rest of the home. A bountiful wreath, a graphic welcome mat, colorful potted plants and lanterns for the front porch will add instant warmth and seasonal style.

The Heart of the Home
Everyone is attracted to the kitchen and dining area. Draw inspiration from nature with a linen or grass cloth runner for the dining table paired with a harvest bouquet centerpiece. Hang leaf wreaths and garlands and fill wooden bowls and baskets with a mix of apples, pears and nuts.

Inviting & Chic Living Spaces
Give a neutral living area an inviting boost with accents such as plush pillows, cable knit throws, cozy rugs, floor to ceiling curtains and wall art – mix textures and fabrics in on-trend leather, velvet, suede and tiger prints. Create unique mantel or coffee table vignettes with glass hurricanes filled with gourds and acorns paired with metallic votives to add glimmers of warmth.

Switch out summer bedding for fresh linens and layer fluffy comforters or duvets with textured quilts, cozy throws and accent pillows in an array of rich colors and fabrics in velvet, suede and faux fur for pure seasonal comfort.
‘Tis the season to add festive cheer to your decor. No matter what holiday you are celebrating, we have some great tips for bringing that special glow into your homes. Happy decorating!
Shimmer & Sparkle
Silver and gold metallics will add chic style to any neutral room. We love the elegance of a mantle or dining table adorned with antique mercury glass candle holders and votives, classic white candles, touches of greenery and white amaryllis.
A Mix of Fabrics and Textures
Mix and match cozy fabrics and materials such as faux fur blankets, chunky knit throws, quilted velvet stockings, leather poufs, burlap pillows and red plaid fabrics. It’s a perfect way to layer in warmth an luxury to any space.
Bring in elements from nature for a rustic look by using fresh evergreen and winterberry wreaths and trimmings paired with pinecones, twigs and fruit. Then pair with nostalgic touches such as embroidered pillows with wintry imagery and vintage designs, plaid dinnerware, ornaments and frames.
Fill glass bowls and vases with colorful ornaments, candy, nuts, pinecones, pomegranates, kumquats or cranberries then top with a pillar candle for a unique accent. Try recycling wine bottles and use as candlesticks by replacing labels with metallic wrap or a bow. The possibilities are endless!

Whether a homeowner is selling now or wants to enjoy updates for a few years, smart on-trend solutions will add value and make a home more attractive to future buyers. The collage below features elements from several kitchens we decorated/remodeled along with a list of some of the latest trends in kitchen design for 2016 that we hope will help inspire you to get started planning your dream kitchen.
Kitchens are fading into the backdrop as open layouts infuse more seamlessly into the living room or dining room. The result is a unified, multi-functional space that is perfect for a relaxed lifestyle as well as entertaining.
Metal Range Hoods
While stainless steel finishes continue to be popular in accents such as faucets, pendant lights and cabinet hardware, this trend takes it one step further by using metal range hoods as a focal point either over the stove or a central island. They also provide a beautiful contrast to surrounding materials.
This trend is about more than just adding workspace in the kitchen – its a perfect solution for more storage, charging stations for gadgets, prep sinks, as well as another casual dining area.
Soft, Muted Color Palettes
Although white motifs continue to dominate, designers are adding touches of soft, pastel color in tiles, shelving and other accents. Also using variations of gray, muted blue and green and tinted whites for walls and cabinets are new alternatives to standard white.
The more options for layering kitchen lighting the better. LED and low voltage light strips placed above, below and inside cabinets pair well with ceiling fixtures to provide more ways to set the right mood.
There’s no better time than the start of spring to introduce a fresh look to your space that you’ll love spending time in. The simplest way to do that is by adding rugs, lamps and unique one-of-a-kind items shown in the latest color trends – pastels, floral patterns and pops of bright hues. We hope our collection below will provide some inspiration for accentuating your home this season. Visit our “Florals & Pastels” Pinterest board for more ideas.
