Besides placing a mirror above your dresser, like everybody does, why not use mirrors in more unique ways in the bedroom?  I absolutely love the use of mirrors behind the nightstands on either side of the bed!!

This is such an elegant and unique way to add more light (by reflecting the lamps on the nightstands), brighten the room, and fill dead wall space.  The mirrors almost give the illusion of windows too which keeps the room feeling open and not cluttered with art.

If you are having a hard time imagining what I am trying to describe, here are some beautiful bedrooms for inspiration…

Everybody needs a little sun, right?  (Okay, okay, I know I was just in AZ last month, but it was a cool 45 degrees there!  Who would have thought that a climate where the temp reached over 105 on average could be so cool?!)  So Taylor and I planned a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and we leave Wednesday!  I cannot wait!

Again, Ethan Allen has furnished the Dream Home House, this gorgeous house is in Charleston, SC.

What do you think about the kitchen ceiling paint color?  With ceilings this high, I think it totally rocks!

I just love the fun and vibrant color scheme that is pulled throughout the whole entire house!  I have a feeling that painted furniture and this aqua blue and lime green scheme will make a comeback this year (yes, I do still know that the Pantone color of the year is emerald green).

I posted recently about a collection of some gorgeous grey pillows; a very affordable and easy way to change up your room’s design and color scheme!  One more way to change up the color and texture in a room is the rug!!

Source: Arhaus

A little tip when selecting the right size for the room- the front two legs of all the main pieces of furniture need to be resting on the rug!  This way, the pieces all feel grounded and the space is defined as a seating area, dining area, sleeping area, etc… get it?

A room that either lacks a rug or has one that is too small can have a feeling of chaos, that all the pieces of furniture are just floating around the room.  The majority of the time, you will want an 8’x10′ rug for the space.  See my diagrams below for ideas. 

Here is another collection of some beautiful and hip grey rugs for inspiration! And of course, if you need help designing your own space, contact me!

One large source of social controversy all around the world is graffiti.  Traveling from city to city you see it everywhere.  It is accepted as an urban artistic expression but viewed as property vandalism and is completely condemned.

Source: Elle Decor

But what happens when graffiti is taken off the streets and applied to interiors and thus, used in a totally different application?  Here are some highly creative ways graffiti can be applied in a more “accepted” way.

These artists truly are very talented.  I love the vibrant and modern feel the freeform art brings to a room!  And how cool is this furniture below?

Ahh I love fall time!  There is just something about the crisp morning air and the warm colors on the trees that just gets me, and I know I’m not alone here.  The leaves changing start to bring about the feeling of coziness that has been missing all summer.

Fall inspired color schemes are really starting to pop up everywhere!  Some colors with that “fall vibe” are coppery reds, pumpkins, burnt yellows, forest greens, and chocolaty browns.  If selecting a paint or accent color from these, be aware of the feeling you are trying to create…

Red can be a strong color that evokes energy, but with such a wide range of tones (from cherry, to crimson, to wine) there are lots of options to incorporate the color into any space.   There are tones that you can even be comfortable with year-round.

A burnt Orange can be warming but a more vibrant shade can be super modern and lively.

Forest Green is a great way to create an outdoorsy feeling and if accented with other warm fall color will create a “homey” feel as well.

If a more neutral color is desired for a main color, warm or rich brown will evoke a natural feel of wood or stone.

A strong note I will make is, do not feel obligated to use all these wonderful fall colors in only one space; Doing this will actually feel very chaotic.  There is a 3 color max rule for interior design and yes, this includes your neutral!

Source: Country Living

A way to incorporate these colors is to use them throughout the whole house or floor , and to add hints of the color in accents to create a smooth transition between rooms.  Adding pillows on the sofa and candles on the fireplace mantle, and then artwork on the dining room wall, and a rug in another room is how to create flow in color.

I hope this guide helps you to create the feeling of whichever aspect of fall you are trying to evoke in your home, whether it be the falling leaves, a forest stroll, or a harvest celebration.
