Style Tips for Your Home

♥ Don't forget to enter my End of Summer Makeup GiveawayLink
Just because the summer temperatures are winding down doesn't mean that your design trends should too. Try these upcoming fall designs to get your home looking wonderfully festive!

High Glamour: There is no reason for your home to look like its feeling an economic pinch. Using rich materials, classy colors and striking curves and shape, whether it's in furniture or décor, your house will be luxurious.

Warm Tones: Bring in some familiar warm tones, like reds and oranges, to help make your space resonate with the season and feel cozy. Bronze and copper hues add an elegant twist. If you don't want such a bold statement, accessorize a neutral color palette with pillows, blankets and décor in fall colors. Don't forget that fall is wine season, so deep purple and greens are also great colors to mix in your decorations.

Curb Appeal: Make the entrance to your house festive for the season and welcoming with some autumn inspired designs. Use plants like variegated croton and mums to bring color to your porch. Adding different size and color pumpkins and gourds can also be a creative way to add color and interest.

Indoor Décor: The pumpkins and plants aren't only for your doorway so consider bringing them inside too. Use them to create center pieces for your dining or coffee table. These natural materials will add textures and unexpected interest on your tabletops.

So what other fall decorating tips do you have for keeping a house looking brilliant?

Love the idea of bringing in warm tones to match the warmth of the fall colors. I love seeing little stacks of hay bails or rustic buckets filled with little pumpkins. Also candles are great for the fall, esp ones that smell like pumpkin pie! Great tips!

PS were having a giveaway on the lifestyle blog!

Living in an apartment you can't do much for decorations outside. I always like doing a hanging fall wreath or something like that. Inside I like doing fall colored fake flowers, acorns, and leaves. :)

Haute World said...

These spaces are just gorgeous - I want to dive into that first one and never leave! Great advice too. I think a warmer color range automatically makes any space more welcoming.

I am beyond stoked to start decorating my new apartment. These are great ideas. The warmth of the space really stood out to me. I think I am going to focus on the little details this season. Accents, throw pillow, pictures, wall hangings, etc. They make such a huge impact in the end.
