Fall Pumpkins Design

Fall into Natural Décor

Oranges, yellows, reds, and everything pumpkin is right around the corner. Is your home ready for the season? With all of the beautiful colors in nature right now, it’s a perfect time to bring some of those natural elements into your home. Here are my favorite tips for getting your home fall ready.

  1. Sugar pumpkins and gourds– These fall fruits make great table decorations or accents on the mantel. Sugar pumpkins are the little ones that can be cute on their own, or look elegant painted white. You can pick some up at a local farmer’s market, or just stop by the farm itself! Adding a few candles in with your arrangement will make it look soft and seasonal.
  2. Leaves all around- Colorful leaves can add some spice to a room when sitting in a bowl, candle holder, or just spread out on the table. Real leaves will dry out and crumble easily, so for a cleaner and longer lasting look, try silk leaves from a craft store.

Person Finding Fabric

How to Choose the Right Fabric for Your Custom Furniture

You have pictured the perfect piece of custom furniture, and now it’s time to pick out the fabrics that will bring your dream to life. Before you pick out your fabric, think about how the piece will be used.

Is it in an adult-only space or an all-purpose room?

Will the furniture be used daily or for more formal occasions?

Will the piece of furniture be in direct sunlight?

With your furniture’s use in mind, here’s how to choose the right fabric for you.

Linen: Linen is best suited for formal living or adult areas because it soils and wrinkles easily. The fabric does withstand pilling and fading, but it won’t withstand heavy wear. And, if it is soiled, it must be professionally cleaned to avoid shrinking.
