Add Interest to the Fall Chill with Jackets

This weekend we experienced the first snowfall here on the east coast (OcSNOWber!) and it got everyone thinking about cold weather clothes. For me, one of the best parts of fall is that I get to wear layers! Over the past few years, I have been dubbed the "layering queen" by friends and family. Most of my base layers are the same basic colors. The more a piece of clothing is exposed, the most interest it can add to an outfit. Whether its an eye-catching pattern or a rich texture, the outermost layer is where you can spice it up!

Jackets: Velvet, Fringe, Feather print, Bird print, Plaid.

It's the Idea that Counts

Let's say you are in the market for a headboard. What do you in envision? My guess is it's very palpable, but it doesn't have to be! It can be fun (and even cheaper) to challenge yourself, and look at things in unconentional ways. What are headboards for, in a design sense? Unless you have back problems, wall art can serve the same purpose. It adds beauty and visual interest to a space, and show off who are really area unique, creative soul who likes to have fun with design! A few wall art pics:

Wall art: headboard, window, chandelier.

Monday Motivation: Mix it up!

The best way to combat Monday Blues: add color! Bold prints are to be embraced in all their forms this fall, from tried-and-true plaid (top right corner), to a new take on animal print (bottom left corner). When your mood is down and you need to uplift your spirits, dress the part! If you read this post to late, after you've already dressed yourself and left the house, use it to look forward to next Monday.
Have a great week!

Weekly Motivation: There's No Time Like the Present

Sometimes the best way to motivate yourself is to take it slow. Paying attention to a task along the way to its completion can be just as fulfilling as the product itself. One of the best cases is DIY projects. What is more satisfying than the knowledge that you can make anything more beautiful and meaningful with your own hands? Below are some steps on creating inspiring 'florals' from fallen leaves. The rest is over at DesignSponge.
