Swoon Worthy Stuff - Fall Decor!

Cozy Glam
-Fall decor ideas-

I truly enjoy taking the opportunity to freshen up our decor with the changing of the seasons. I especially love adding cozy touches to our home for Fall. Here are some of my favorite inspirations!

1. A cozy throw blanket

2. Luxe textures 
New cushions, A tufted ottoman, or a flokati rug

Ikea velvet cushion cover
Loving these oversized velvet cushions! 
I'll take 4 in grey please.

3. Something shiny
A metallic pouf, a gold print, silver candle sticks, or a tassel garland

Metallic leather pouf Land of Nod

Still swooning over these Land of Nod poufs.

How gorg is this tassel garland by Silver lake sisters

Has anyone ever attempted to make one?

4. Cozy seasonal scents
candles, soaps

This is my number one pick for Fall. I've always been a vanilla girl and this is the perfect mix of vanilla and pumpkin.  Completely obsessed and plan to stock up.

Grab a bottle of this marshmallow pumpkin comfort body wash to display on a pretty tray in your bathroom.  Then run a decadent bubble bath.  There is a great sale going on! (I promise I'm not a spokesperson for Bath and body works!) This scent is just perfect.

5. Dark accent wall

There is something intimate and cozy about a black painted wall.  I fell in love with this setup on the cover of the CB2 catalog.  I'm now considering doing a dark accent wall somewhere.  I'm leaning towards trying one out in our living room.  It is stunning with white details and trim.

Black satin- Benjamin Moore

Loving this color!
I would opt for an eggshell finish and pair it with white trim as shown above.
The first photo in this post of the chair is featured against a black wall also.
Which btw might be my most favorite pin of all time!

What are your favorite ways to prep your place for Fall?

Romantic bedroom Inspiration Board

Romantic Bedroom Inspiration Board
Colors- Blush, Gray, Metallics, with a pop of fuchsia

1.Gray floral bedding -Lush Decor
This bedding is gorgeous in person, as well as a pretty great dupe of Anthropologie's Georgina bedding.

2. Crystal knob- Anthropologie
I purchased a few of these a while back with the intentions of hanging necklaces on them.  I have pale pink ones in Emily's room that hold hairbands.

3. Silver Pouf- Land of Nod
I'd like to get this to place next to my Ikea mirror, to add a bit of sparkle. 
The poufs on the Land of Nod are cheaper than any I've found thus far.  Check out their site for home decor items even if you don't have little ones.(It is a kid's catalog!)  I'll be watching for Land of Nod's holiday sales!

Perfect blush pink paint.  I have done one coat so far, but have to touch up a few spots.  
I love the quality and colors that Valspar paint has to offer.  I have never been disappointed by any Valspar purchase.  I actually won a few cans in a contest recently and was completely thrilled!  I didn't even believe it at first.  This is one of the colors I chose and I also got a beautiful blue paint for Cole's room.  

5. Lingerie chest- Horchow
Obsessed with this mirrored lingerie chest, but I'm thinking I can possibly thrift an old chest and either silver leaf it or paint it with metallic paint? 

Love this and think it would be an easy DIY! 

7.  Art 
I think I could DIY a similar piece of art.  I plan to place it above my white bookshelves I use as shoe storage. 

8. I'd like a pop of hot pink somewhere.  Whether is be a floral arrangement, a book, a velvet chair not sure yet.

9. Gold polka dot sheets- Land of Nod
I found these in a children's catalog, but they do come in a queen size.  I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for discount coupons/sales.

10. Cocoa & Hearts painting- Made By Girl
I just love the colors in this clip of a Cocoa & Hearts painting by Made By Girl.
Her work is simple yet so pretty and chic.  I have her Love Candy Print in our office. 

Ideally Id like to add a small chandelier but Marc has banned me from buying  For the record I only have two.

Here are a few more pinterest inspiration pics.

Love the draping behind the bed.

These candles add a pretty touch and you can't beat the price. ($4.95)

Here is a pic of some of the progress I've made so far.  Well really just the bedding...

Motivational Monday..Better late than never!
