The Buzz :: Fall Favorites

As the fall months approach, it’s a great time to refresh your home. I’ve noticed that I’m gravitating to cool whites and deep indigo blues. Although not typically associated with the fall, the color palette is a great one for any season. It’s timeless. Here are a few swoon worthy fall favorites that caught my eye.

Navajo patterns. Feather artwork. Indoor cactus. I know you’ve spotted them too. Southwestern decor is trending, but with an fresh modern twist. Timeless Native American patterns have inspired a new generation of textiles (like the rug below from Domain), flooring (like the tile above from Curbly) and home decor products that are being incorporated in a variety of dwellings from urban to rural. The earthy desert palettes with pops of bright color here and there is perfect to incorporate with modern and transitional furnishings for a chic boho look. southwest modern decor #cactus #pinksouthwest desert chic // decor trends

Healthy Home :: Easy Indoor Plants

antique chest // bedroom // simplified bee #chinoiserie

As I mentioned in the Rue article, plants are an essential element of home decor. House plants bring the outside in, add a splash of color and texture, but most importantly create healthy homes. These all natural air purifiers not only give off oxygen, but some varieties are known to remove harmful chemicals such as ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene. In addition, indoor plants can even decrease stress while boosting mood, memory, concentration. A win, win, win right? But, sometimes selecting the right plant can be overwhelming so here are some simple tips to keep in mind:
