Quintessental Fall Activities

Fall is here, and we are ready to do all of our favorite seasonal activities.

Decorating Your Front Porch

Adding seasonal decor to your front porch is the perfect way to feel festive every time you arrive home. Using items like pumpkins, corn stalks, and mums is a simple way to make a big impact.

Sprucing Up Your Mantle

We love how Jamie from So Much Better With Vintage decorated her mantle in a non-traditional neutral color palette. Old books, metallic accents, and vases of grain create a calm and cozy look.

Baking Apple Pie

If you want to take your apple pie to the next level…or maybe the next ten levels, try out this beautiful rose Apple Walnut Tart from Baking a Moment. We were blown away when we saw this beautiful dessert.

Wandering Through Corn Mazes

There are corn mazes to be found all over the country, but one of our personal favorites is Mike’s Maze in Massachusetts. They go above and beyond year with a unique maze, trivia, haunted fright nights, and a petting zoo for the kiddos.

Going on Cool Weather Picnics

While picnics are usually classified as a spring/summer activity, we think that fall picnics might be the best of them all. Gone are the pesky bugs and summer humidity, and in their place is cool air and bright foliage. Curling up under a blanket while snacking on cheese and crackers sounds pretty wonderful to us right now.

Drinking Apple Cider

Homemade Apple Cider 8

If you’re interested in trying your hand at homemade apple cider, this recipe from Hint of Vanilla looks amazing. She adds brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla bean (of course), and it sounds like the best thing ever.

Fall 2015 Color & Pattern Trends

Autumn Has Never Ever Looked So Good!

cozy fall sweaters

September 23rd marks the start of the autumn season! The season of chunky knit sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, brisk mornings, LOTS of turkey, apple picking, leaves changing, boots, darker hues and days you just want to stay curled up in bed. Although our favorite memories and pastimes of this special time of year stay the same, trends are always changing! So what’s in store for this year? Let’s take a peek…

Color: This Fall we see a more toned down palette that incorporates hues such as mustard, muted orange, navy, olive green and even a pretty blush. There were two shades however that flourished above the rest and seemed to bloom not just from the runway but also everywhere in between…

Burgundy in Fashion:

Taking cue from marsala, the Pantone color of the year, this rich, earthy hue can take a variety of forms. Add a little purple and you get a beautiful sangria shade or add a little more red and you get a refreshing cranberry color. All these tones of burgundy and more can be seen taking front and center this autumn! Bags to coats, dresses to shoes, just add a pop of burgundy to stay stylish and on trend.

Burgundy in the Home: 

From fashion to your front door, burgundy can also be seen trending in home decor. From the switch to colder weather, this warm and spicy hue gives your home a cheerful energy without being over the top. Whether you are looking for a total room transformation or just a quick fall fix, easily layer in burgundy through rugs, pillows, throws, wall decor or even a new statement couch!

Greige in Fashion: The other color that’s trending is greige, a miraculous combination of grey and beige. The hottest neutral this season, greige can compliment just about anything. Even Bobbi Brown labeled her NEW fall collection after this perfectly chic tone, so you know it must be sticking around (at least for the moment!). If you want to dabble in this trend, we suggest trying a jacket or blazer, a pair of ankle booties, or even the greige eye palette to finish your look.

Greige in the Home: Although you can see greige trending throughout the home, it tends to stick to the walls. From paint to wallpaper to wall decor, this soothing and complimentary hue provides a peaceful and modern space that can easily be livened up with a pop of a brighter tone.

Prints: This season in prints we see some of the classics staying strong! There was a lot of Plaid seen on the runway including alternative prints such as houndstooth, gingham and checkered. A variety of stripes made their debut and a few other favorites that can be seen below…

Plaid in Fashion:

Plaid remains an iconic print for fall and winter and this year was no different. This classic and warm look could be seen adorning coats, dresses, skirts, scarves and bags. With more of a “tartan” influence, we were happy to see that this nostalgic print wasn’t going anywhere.

Plaid in the Home:

It’s very easy to add in a plaid touch to your home. Change up your bedding, swap out your summer pillows for a variety of plaid ones or throw a flannel blanket over your sofa for a warm and cozy fall upgrade.

Tribal in Fashion:

Being a huge fan of the tribal look, we were delighted to see it once more on the fall 2015 runway. From beautifully adorned jackets to printed skirts, tapestry covered totes and layers of global prints incorporated with tribal inspired jewelry, this trend is one of our favorites!

Tribal in the Home:

Bringing a chic and exotic touch to your home, incorporating patterned ottomans, kilim rugs and tribal inspired artwork and decor, can easily transform your home into a global oasis. Remember, you don’t have to be a world traveler to embrace this trend!

Florals in Fashion: 

This year, florals were larger than life and whimsical! Floral appliqués were a huge trend, transforming ordinary neutral garments into beautiful art. Giving clothes a realistic feel, we were pleasantly surprised at how much we fell in love with each and every floral design.

Florals in the Home: 

Although when autumn comes around we think of darker and richer colors, beautiful, eye-catching florals still have a place this season. From pillows to decorative wall murals, a refurbished dresser or new shower curtain, bring the whimsical floral to your home anyway you see fit.

Go Paperless with WallPops Dry-Erase Calenders!

A Great Way to Make a Difference in the New Year! 

dry-erase calendars

Style your own yearly calendar by purchasing 3 sets of our 4 piece dry-erase calendars!

In the age of paperless bills, online bank statements, mobile deposit and receipts that are emailed to you rather than printed, we’ve seen the powerful shift of being wasteful, to instead being resourceful.

2015 dry-erase calendars

With a fun array of prints and patterns, there is truly a design for everyone!

One of the many things we love about our dry-erase products are that they are reusable year after year. Instead of having to purchase paper to write down notes or a new calender at the beginning of the New Year, you are able to simply erase and start over. From weekly calendars to monthly, 4-months at a glance and organization sets that include a place for notes and more, our selection just keeps on growing!

organization kits

Start the year right with one of these fabulous organization sets (featuring our White, Eden and Vintage Bazaar styles)

Being on the brink of 2015, there is no better time then now to get prepared for the New Year. Whatever your decorating style or budget, organizational method or schedule, this “green” calendar option allows you to both personalize and reuse while giving you the freedom to remove and reposition whenever you desire!

Not just for walls, our dry-erase calendars make great accessories on folders and books as well as your refrigerator!

It’s a week until Thanksgiving and you’re starting to panic, you have 20+ guests arriving and you haven’t even thought past the turkey and stuffing! I’m sure we’ve all been there; the focus around Thanksgiving tends to be more about the food and less about the decorations. However, by taking just a little extra time to plan out the look of your table, the atmosphere of your special event can take on a whole new meaning.

Place Settings: Even the smallest details will bring a personalized touch to your table. A simple name tag or a fresh autumn sprig or colorful leaf, are all easy ways to achieve this.

Guest room Decorating Ideas

Whether you’re traveling this holiday season or planning to stay put to play host to both family and friends, the thought of where you’re going to stay or where you’re going to place your many guests, is one that’s probably not far from your mind. With just a few weeks till Thanksgiving, making sure that all your I’s are dotted and your T’s are crossed, will make this busy time of year one that both your guests as well as yourself will be able to enjoy!

Guest rooms should be both warm and inviting, a place where your guests can relax and feel at home in, as well as a place to escape to from the holiday chaos or even just a much needed nap. Put yourself in your guest’s shoes, what would make you feel at home, comfortable, at ease?  With just a few simple gestures, you can make sure that your guests are not only happy, but also well taken care of.

guestroom decorating ideas

The Basics:

The basic guest room necessities that every room should have are a variety of standard pillows, extra blankets and throws, as well as a set of towels that should be left out for your guest to access whenever they need. So whether your guest likes their pillows soft and fluffy, or they prefer three layers of blankets to just two, you will be able to rest easy knowing that they will have a good night’s sleep.

For Extra Comfort: 

For added comfort, making sure that your guest has access to a bedside lamp, good size mirror and easily accessible fan, will make their stay even more enjoyable. Having a fan accessible to drown out noise during the night, or having the coziness of a warm reading light are all things we usually take for granted, so making sure that your guest still has access to these home comforts are important to your guest room’s design.

Added Perks:

We all enjoy extra perks, so why not make your guest room extra special with these added accessories! An elegant display of flowers for both beauty and scent, a box of tissues so they don’t have to walk all the way to the bathroom, a warm and inviting wall quote to make them feel at home, a pile of books and magazines for reading material in case they forget their own, and finally a water pitcher and glass in case they get thirsty in the middle of the night. By investing just a bit of extra time in your overall guest room appearance, not only will your guest thank you, but you will feel grateful knowing that you provided a home away from home.
