Fall table decor with wheat grass and white pumpkinsFall is the perfect time to decorate the home with pumpkins! We especially love the look that white pumpkins offer and how they can add a little festive fall cheer. The white hue of the pumpkins is easy to match or accent any color palette in any home. If they weren’t seasonal we’re sure some people would use them to decorate year-round because they look so cute!

Browsing around the internet and Pinterest we have seen a bunch of fun and festive fall decor ideas using pumpkins. Besides using white pumpkins, we love the look of using multiple hues (as seen in the fireplace below). It creates an interesting and eye catching display and is completely fall.

Take a look these photos and see how these people have used pumpkins to decorate with fall in their homes!

:: Anchor A Coastal Living Room With Furniture ::

Tuesday Tips

A coastal living room with fun, electic decorThe living room is an essential room in every home. It gets used daily and is often one of the most seen rooms in the house. That means design in the living room is crucial. One way to ensure design success in the living room is to properly anchor the room. Anchoring is just a fancy term that refers to pulling the room together and there are many ways to anchor a room. One of the most known ways to anchor a room is to use a rug, or rugs, but one of the beautiful things about design is how there are more than one way to do things.

One of the best way to anchor a room using furniture is to use a neutral colored sofa and matching chairs. There are two reason why they should be neutral colored and these pieces specifically. First, these pieces in neutral colors are important because they are going to be large pieces that every living room needs. They will take up space and will stand out if they are a bright, loud color. Second, the neutral colors allow you to build, layer and design on top of them. Set bright red pillows on the sofa to match the red striped rug you lay or the red side table you set in between your neutral colored chairs.

By using these pieces and neutral colors it allows the eyes to see them, but not fixate on them and move onto the more important design elements of the living room. Also, if you have the space, you can use two neutral colored sofas to anchor the space and now your chair options are as open as the color palette you choose.

We’ve gathered a few images to give you a visual of what we’re talking about. Each image shows a beautiful, coastal living room that is anchored by furniture. These spaces are anchored by furniture and allow the designer to decorate the rest of the room as they please. Have a look, take notes and be inspired to try this technique in your home.
