It’s here – fall has arrived! My summer sheets have been replaced with a crisp woven blanket and I’m anxiously awaiting my first bonfire.
Whether you love autumn or not (can you tell I do?!), there’s no arguing that it’s a season of transition. Here are a few easy ways to get your home in the fall spirit – in hopes that you’ll follow soon after!:
Each spring, I opt to throw my rugs in storage and leave my wood floors bare. Then, when the weather turns, I bring back my cozy sheepskins and jute rugs. Textiles are the easiest way to warm up a space – perfect for those dark, chilly nights!
Replace those bamboo shades and sheer, gauzy window treatments in lieu of a heavy textile to flock your windows. Bonus? Add a fun pattern for an unexpected pop to get you through the seasonal doldrums.
Bring in some jewel tones to accent your existing furnishings. Teal velvety throw pillows, harvest orange table runners and magenta vases make great fall transitional colors that you’ll want to hang on to through spring.
Fall foliage is beautiful and vibrant, so bring in a few sticks, pinecones and dried leaves to accessorize with nature’s bounty. After all, nature is easily the most affordable upgrade.
Happy autumn, friends!
Photographer / designer Peter Bagi launched Mrket after dreaming of owning his own general store. Well-edited with emerging art pieces and curated housewares, Mrket is a must-see for quality design and celebrated function. Here are a few finds I’m craving!:
1. This black walnut cheese board deserves to be displayed daily. What a beauty! ($55)
2. Made of reclaimed wood, the Sailor Sam Lamp ($160) would make a lovely industrial statement in any space.
3. A pair of old style creamers are a classic addition to every kitchen – and fit the bill indeed! ($15)
4. The Yew wood knife holder ($75) hails from the Pacific Northwest and begs to be spotlighted in a rustic-inspired kitchen.
Any beauties you see in the mix? Happy shopping!

First things first — by far the easiest way to freshen up a ceiling is with a bold coat of paint. Doesn’t this bedroom ooze with personality?

Can’t settle on a color you love? Add visual interest by hanging a statement item from above, like this worn canoe attached to a wooden cathedral ceiling.

Salvaged beadboard takes an average ceiling up a few notches and creates a cozy, stylish space.

With two paint colors a steady hand, you can create a patterned statement in any space. I love the look in a small entryway as pictured above.

A gold leaf ceiling screams culture and sophistication. For a less expensive technique, try a metallic wallpaper.
Which is your favorite? Tough to choose, yes?
Nothing makes me happier than glancing down at a quirky object on my desktop in the middle of a grueling work day. Surely I’m not alone, yes? And lately, I’ve been feeling restless with my current desk accessories and am in need of a tiny change. What better way to make a statement than with these three easy-to-incorporate DIY pencil holder ideas?:
Idea #1: Transform a vintage horse grooming brush (or otherwise large bristle utility brush) into a desktop accessory holder! Of course, if you’re not feeling crafty, you can purchase the above item for $68. (via Anthropologie)
Idea #2: Have a spare slinky lying around from your child’s playroom? Link the ends together to create an impromptu circle that will contain pencils, pens, business cards and then some. (via Real Simple)
Idea #3: Grab a ball of twine from your local dollar store and put it to use as a utensil holder that will provide the perfect handmade touch to any desktop. Easy peasy! (via Slumber Designs)
Happy work day, friends!
