Pumpkin Season!

Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year! I love when the air gets crisp, leaves start to turn gold, red and orange, and pumpkin patches start to sprout up everywhere. I love pulling out my sweaters and scarves, lighting candles and cozying up to watch a movie.

In honor of my favorite season, I want to highlight the beautiful color Orange, or shall we call it pumpkin?!? Orange also happens to be my mom’s favorite color, so when I see it I lovingly think of her!

Here are some beautiful examples of rooms that have an autumn palette featuring the color pumpkin. Take notice of the hues in each picture and how they evoke a sense of Autumn warmth or Halloween whimsy!

Love this as a dinner centerpiece. The white pumpkins are a great contract to any colorful tablecloth or runner. Add votive candles for more ambiance.

Love the Autumn tablescape! Warm metallic tones and jeweled hurricanes gives this table just enough glitz.

Copy Cat: Modern Glam Living Room

Ever see a picture online or in a magazine that inspires you? You love it SO much you want to re-create it in your own home. In my new Copy Cat series, I’ll show you pictures of inspiration rooms found online and I’ll recreate them using accessible and affordable vendors. You’ll learn how to go about finding similar items and design elements to help recreate the look you love!


Here is our Inspiration Photo 

Modern Glam Living Room

04064dcd20869916a6f29b44f5299b21

To recreate this design, I suggest simplifying the elements in the room and make a list so it’s easier to find them when you’re out shopping. Rememeber, we dont have to find exact replicas in order to attain the look. Similar items that give off the same vibe will give you the look you love!

hello there

As you can see above, I’ve identified the objects by their shape, size and color.

Here is our shopping list

1. Simple geometric rug in black and white or cream

2. Cream sofa with modern, clean lines

3. Monochromatic, Tribal Pillows

4. Fun/unique gold chest of drawers.

5. Two matching crystal lamps

6. Round Gold Mirror

7. Small Gold Accent Table

8. Graphic wallpaper

9. Gold accessories- bonus points for finding a vase and obelisks.

Now let’s start to build our room up piece by piece, starting form the bottom up!

Rug

This rug works because it has a monochromatic black and white palette similar to the one in the picture as well as a simple geometric pattern.

Pretty in Pink

Champagne, rose, flamingo…what do these words have in common? They are all shades of PINK! and in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I want to pay homage to this beautiful color!

Pink is extremely versatile. It can be soft and femenine or bold, vibrant and assertive. Used at any capacity, it can add tons of personality into a room. Its not always your first thought when choosing a color pallette, but Pink can be an amazing accent to many colors; i.e brown, grey, black, navy blue, turquoise, orange and even red.

Here are some great examples of how this color can be used:
