Fall Refresh: 6 Versatile Decorating Tips for Any Room in Your Home

Summer and spring are all about making the most of outdoor living, but what we love about the changing of the seasons is the delightful opportunity to make your home cozy again! In the spirit of fall nesting, here are 6 of my fail safe decorating tips that can be applied to any space or vignette in your home.
Happy decorating! 
1. START WITH SOMETHING YOU LOVE like our versatile grasscloth Spring Street desk and this new floral from the Schumacher x Vogue Living collection. Design note: Stripes and florals always play well together and this rug creates a welcoming and distinct walkway.

2. DECORATE WITH BOOKS to showcase your personality and also to create different levels for accessorizing. This is important for visual interest!

3. ADD FUNCTIONAL & CHIC PERSONAL TREASURES whether it’s a horn tray perfect for keys from an east village favorite, John Derian, or a brass and bone inlay bud vase scooped up on a vintage hunt, personal pieces are what make your home yours! 

4. GET LIT with ambient lighting. I always prefer ambient vs overhead lighting. It casts a lovely glow about everyone and everything! This tassel lamp and collected brass candlesticks are perfect for height and light.

5. BRING THE OUTDOORS IN with floral and fauna. Greenery makes a home feel cozy and welcoming. I chose eucalyptus for it’s height and a single hydrangea bloom in a fall and fabric complimentary color.

6. KICK YOUR SHOES OFF, STAY AWHILE! There is nothing more welcoming and equally functional. Than seating in an entryway. Natural bamboo chairs and a gilded faux bamboo x-stool add texture, polish, and a place to take off shoes, set down a bag, and paraphernalia from the day’s activities.
