Fall in Love with Fall.

It is that time of year when the leaves start to change color and the tempuratures start to fall.  I don’t know about you but I love the Fall Colora.  They are so warm and inviting.  You can change the whole look and feel of your home just by adding a few touches.

In fact, I always change my home from Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter.  By swapping a rug, putting out different tea towels or candles you can warm up your home and create that toasty warm feeling we all love!  Every year at the end of September I roll up my rug under my kitchen table and replace it for another.  Browns, Reds, Golds, Blues….. deep colors, warm colors.  It’s like comfort food for your eyes!  Add a few pillows, switch out a few of your accessories and voilla!  It feels like a new home!

My sister, Melanie Williams shares my love for decorating for the seasons.  In the following photos you will see how she uses her love for collecting things she loves and incorportates them into a visual feast.  Here are a few that she has shared.

Color me Happy!

photo1Colors can change your mood.  A pop of yellow reminds of us of sunshine.  The colorful flowers reminds us that Spring is just around the corner.  What colors bring a smile to your face?  Blues? Pinks?  Corals?  Greens?  All of these colors are easy to find right now.  Pick a combination of colors or stay with one color but use several shades.  I love that these little tables added just the right “pop” of color to this display.  Yellow is an easy color to use in any color scheme too.  Think sunshine and who wouldn’t want a pop of sunshine in their room?

Thoughts of Spring…

photo

With the change of the calender and the hopeful change of the weather, many of us are looking for a change in our surroundings. This could mean something as simple as colorful napkins for your table, a new bunny to tuck on a shelf or a complete room makeover. We are thinking something fresh!

When you think Spring, what do you think of? I think of flowers, green grass and sunshine. When I change seasons in my home, I like to change palettes. I take the colors from nature that we see in that season. I like to pick neutral colors for my walls and then I can change accent pieces with a lot of color and have a totally different look for each season.

This month I will be looking at some different ways to get the change of season in our surroundings even though the weather may not be cooperating.

Its Been a Whirlwind!

Not complaining but it has been almost two years since I last posted.  What a Whirlwind it has been!  Way too long, but I promise to be better about this.  Let me catch you up on things….

We opened March 16, 2011.  We had a private party a few days before with our close family and friends.  It was fun to see everyone and to feel their support.  Nothing was for sale because we just wanted to visit and show everyone around.  We then had a soft opening followed by a Grand Opening, which was April 2, 2011.  Again the support was upbelievable!  Thank you!

I am not going to bore you with a day by day to catch you up with our store but I am going to post a few photos in the album that follows.  Many of you keep up with our store via Facebook and we can now be found on Twitter and Pinterest.

My intentions are to use this blog to keep you informed as to what we are doing at the store, let you know of new trends, and also include informative articles on how to achieve a that “certain look”.  We will also let you know of new products as well.

So glad that you have been patient with us and hope you enjoy our website.
