Autumn Breeze

Yesterday was a brilliantly breezy day in Dallas and this morning as I write, its 55 degrees.  In honor of this welcomed shift I want to introduce some beautiful fall color into my home.  Home decor and design is one of the easy ways for me to mark the changing seasons with my family.  And I'm not talking about decorating the mantel with pumpkins or little Mayflower replicas.  I enjoy changing the entire look and feel of my home. Sometimes this simply involves re-arranging the furniture, pulling out some of my darker autumn and winter decor.  Today, I'll tuck away the brighter objects and floral prints for next spring and re-introduce some rust colored velvet pillow covers, a few beautiful pieces of dark pottery and clear the decks for Fall.  What do you do to mark the changing seasons in your home?

I don't! The more I read design blogs, the more I see that I have no idea what to do with my home to keep it current! ;) I do put out decorations for each holiday, but that is it! Maybe next year (having a baby in 6 weeks) I will start doing fun home changing projects! ;)

I do change things for the seasons. I have a goal of meutral backgrounds and furnishings with a fall/winter and spring/summer "wardrobe" of sipcovers to utilize. That and accessories and I am good to go. But I am not there yet!

I'm searching for some velvet pillows for our couch right now. Since I don't really have rooms decorated fully I won't be changing much, but I figure pillows is a good way to go!

This color is fabulous in the home. It really brings out the true nature of this time of year. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.

I try to keep my home neutral and then change pillows, throws, a few decorations, and the such to keep it current for the seasons.

Isn't it nice when it FINALLY cools off in the South? I change out the matelasse coverlet to a down comforter! XX!
