It’s finally September. Kids are back in school and many of us look forward to cooler weather. Pumpkin Spice Latte, anyone? To get in the spirit of fall, consider a few simple additions to your home’s décor. Read on to learn our Décor Tips for Fall and how to decorate your home for the upcoming season!
Wreaths make a great statement about the season, whether they’re hung on your front door or someplace inside your home. Fall wreaths typically include a combination of leaves and/or flowers in shades of orange and red, plus pinecones, mini pumpkins, and burlap.
Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins!
The addition of traditional orange pumpkins is one of the easiest ways to help your home feel more like fall. If orange isn’t quite your style, a variety of pumpkins and gourds come in non-traditional colors such as white, yellow, pale green, and dark green. Look for gourds in grocery stores, farmers markets, and roadside stands.
One of our favorite things about fall is the changing colors of the leaves. Leaves can be incorporated vertically in floral arrangements and horizontally in table centerpieces. Other popular elements bring in corn stalks and wheat to share the feeling of the fall harvest.
The things that remind us of fall aren’t limited to what our eyes see. Scents such as apple and pumpkin spice—made up of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves— are powerful triggers for memories and can set the tone for fall in your home. A variety of candles offer fall scents, or you can make your own!
Great fall décor often pairs wonderfully with rustic and vintage pieces. If you’re looking for great accessories to fit with your fall décor, come check out the selections at Rare Finds Warehouse. We have many pieces in store our that will fit with your home style. Hope to see you all soon!
Many houses feature a home office that serves as a command for a center for family paperwork, finances, and keeping track of school and activity schedules. Your home office needs to be functional, but you want it to reflect your style as a part of your home.
To help your home office feel more like a part of your home, here are 5 things you can use:
Consider using a furniture element such as a cabinet or bookshelves to store and display your office supplies in style.
- One with glass doors on top and closed doors on the bottom would allow you to display mementos and awards while storing less attractive office items out of sight below.
- You can use a sideboard or console as a storage piece for your printer and office supplies and use the top for paper organization.
- For an office that serves double-duty as a craft room, perhaps a cabinet with multiple drawers and open storage will help keep all your supplies sorted and neat.
Once you have chosen the big pieces for your home office, you can incorporate more of your personality through the smaller storage accessories and decorative accents.
- Rattan storage baskets help keep your supplies organized and easy to see.
- A unique magazine rack can be a great way to sort your incoming mail and bills.
With so many great options for making your home office work for you, the trouble will be narrowing it down to what fits YOUR personality and style. Come check out the great selections at Rare Finds Warehouse.
If you’re new to the minimal design trend, you might feel a bit overwhelmed by the scale of work to get to the minimal look. Achieving minimal design takes time and experimentation, so settle in and enjoy the journey. Here are a few tips for getting the most out of minimal design and living:
Simple Color Palette
By keeping colors neutral, you create a clean backdrop to whatever else you put in the room. A light-colored neutral—such as white, light gray, greige, or whatever neutral trend strikes your fancy—can help the room feel more spacious. Color can add interest, but if you’re targeting minimal design, you will want to use colors within the same family or two colors applied sparingly. If you decide you want a different accent color later, it’s easily changed.
Minimal design is best achieved by choosing simple shapes and straight lines for furniture, décor or patterns. Clean lines allow the eyes to travel the room without distracting details.
Texture and Natural Elements
When you apply a neutral color palette to a room, adding a variety of textures keeps your space from feeling too industrial or clinical. Wood accents help warm up your space, contribute to the texture, and add a bit of color while keeping within your minimal design.
Function, Function, Function
To make minimal design work for you in a way that is sustainable, your selections need to be purposeful and functional. Choose furniture pieces that have multiple functions, such as an ottoman or bench with hidden storage, or an entryway table with drawers for storing your keys/wallet/sunglasses out of sight.
A pretty basket can hold those “not clean enough to put away, but not dirty enough to wash” clothes, adding an interesting feature and providing a place to hide store things without cluttering the space. Make use of drawer and shelf organizers to keep your things neat and visible in your dressers and closets.
If you are looking for a great minimal piece to work into your space, Rare Finds Warehouse has many items to choose from. We have a great selection of pieces with clean lines and loads of function. Come visit our Warehouse any day of the week! Our warehouse is at 6500 E Stapleton Dr. South, in Denver.
