It’s cooling off just about everywhere here in the U.S. and we even enjoyed a dip in temps this weekend thanks to the season’s first cold front pushing through. We relished the 79-degree high on Sunday, and lows in the 60s had some people hunting for sweaters and boots!
Fall is a great time to cozy up at home and enjoy the longer evenings once we “fall back” in time. It’s also a great time to infuse warmer colors into your home décor palette.

Bigger is not always better as recently proven by the lighting fixtures seen on the outside of this gym and massage therapy facility. Instead of installing big, glaring neon lights for the exterior of their business, these savvy owners chose miniature gooseneck lights to add a hint of style and character to an otherwise bland and boring building.

While remodels and renovations are time (and budget) consuming, a simple refresh can be a quick and easy weekend project. By refresh, we’re talking about what a difference a fresh coat of paint can make on walls and doors. Consider re purposing a few items that are collecting dust elsewhere and use them as new decorations. The resident that is the proud owner of this half bath used vintage blue Mason jars, previously table centerpieces at her wedding.
