Envision yourself finally getting home after a long day, brushing the autumn chill off your shoulders as you walk through the door, starting a fire in the fireplace, and cozying up beside it with your loved ones.
Is there anything better?
Add in some Frank Sinatra or Vince Guaraldi Trio playing softly in the background, a glass of wine, and a charcuterie board, and you have the makings of a perfect, cozy fall or winter evening at home in my opinion.
I am so excited to be collaborating with Wayfair to bring you just the right pieces to help make this vision a reality.
A few weeks back, we completed another project we always envisioned for this space: built-in storage for our mudroom! We have been hard at work knocking out projects we have planned to do, especially before our baby boy arrives in a few short months.
Before our home renovation, this space was awkward, not functional, or reaching its full potential. It was part closet, part pass through from the garage leading to the main entry hallway. When we did the walk through for our renovations, I immediately envisioned this space being the perfect little mudroom and drop zone for all of our belongings when we come home. Once we refinish our pool (hopefully by next summer), this will also be the designated place to dry off and the drop zone for wet towels and swimsuits.
With less than three weeks until the first official day of fall, I can't help but anxiously await its arrival. Fall has always been my favorite season, probably because I never experienced much of one growing up in south Texas, and there are so many things to look forward to. Things like the promise of cooler weather, changing leaves, fall festivals, layered fall fashion (my favorite), cozy living and snuggling by the fire, welcoming the holiday season, pie, quality time with family, our anniversary, and this year, the birth of our baby boy.
Typically, I'm a stickler for letting each season have its own, designated time and run its course, but this year, I have already broken my own "rules." I already tried my first ever pumpkin drink--the Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew (which was actually quite enjoyable and not too sweet) and purchased a few new fall decorations in preparation of decorating our home for the new season. I searched some of my favorite stores like Anthropologie, Target, and Kirkland's for my recent fall purchases and gathered up my favorite finds, so I'm excited to share them with you below!
Living and wall decor:
Now, we will have to wait and see how long I can hold off actually decorating! My goal is to wait until the weekend before the first official day, but we shall see how long my willpower lasts.
