      Transitioning Your Home to Fall

      With the official start of fall just a couple of weeks away, we wanted to pop in your inbox with some trends to look out for this season as you transition your homes between seasons!

      • Rich and cozy textiles - Think throw blankets and pillows to warm up your space and offer a practical addition to your home.
      • Natural elements- Woods and marbles, antique bowls & pedestals, jute runners, and wicker trays are fantastic ways to transition seamlessly between seasons.
      • Bold taper candles - Olive green and burnt orange are both classic fall colors. Bring in the bold with colored taper candles.
      • Faux greens - Snag some dried artichokes for some green in an unexpected way. They'll last you all season and bring in a soft green to match many home color schemes.
      • Gingham table linens - A tried and true pattern for fall. But go small with simple napkins that compliment the rest of your space!

      Stop in the store or shop online for some of our favorite home decor items as welcome autumn!

      Coffee Table Styling

      It's no surprise that some of our favorite items in the store are those that add to the style and warmth of a home. Putting a personal touch on one's space is something we love to be a part of.

      Whether it's the kitchen or living room, we like to have versatile pieces that can fit in many different places in your home. Today, we're giving some inspiration for coffee tables - high traffic spots in many homes that need the perfect mix of design and practicality. Three important things to remember when styling coffee tables are balance, texture, and function.

      Balance
      Regardless of coffee table size, balance is really important to creating a finished look. Consider the shapes and sizes of your decor items like coffee table books, decorative bowls, trays, and candles to balance the visuals. Pair a larger piece and a smaller piece to create a vignette, while a stack of books gives some dimension.
       
      Texture
      A great opportunity to flex your design muscles and add your personal style is through texture. Woods, marbles, and linens are great ways to add some texture to an otherwise flat surface. Mixing tones and textures creates timeless looks that flow well with any home decor styles. Shop our favorite wood candles and catch all trays here.
      Function
      At the end of the day, one of the most important things about a coffee table is its function. So with balance and texture in mind, keep the space you need for everyday use. Whether thats easily movable decor pieces for family game night, or a more minimal design for cups of tea around the table. 

      We hope your coffee tables are little gathering spots for sweet memories with family and friends while also being a statement of personal style in your homes.
