Oh Deer Decor Inspiration

3

Fall may be hunting season, but the only hunting we’re doing is finding as many inspiring decor ideas involving our favorite fauns. Whether you’re into real taxidermy, or the ever-popular deer silhouette, this trend is one that works for many different room styles. It adds a taste of the great outdoors to your decor, but can easily work in a modern room. Or you can fully commit, and make your place as rustic as a hunting lodge. The deer can also work really well in both feminine and masculine spaces. Dress it up in gold and pink, or leave it unbleached for authenticity. b29c6ce3252b701f65a73dd210801d08

Color Story: Burnt Orange

Fall is finally here! Saying goodbye to summer is bittersweet, but the lazy days of summer are forgotten almost immediately when you throw socks, hoodies and pumpkin spice everything into the mix. One of our favorite aspects of the season are the warm and earthy colors, like burnt orange. This hue perfectly captures the color of the changing autumn leaves and gets us in the mood for all things fall. e6f27a260da5b27c3c2928da081dc1fe

Trend Alert: High Contrast Decor

1

If you have a bold personality and want your decor to reflect that eccentric quality, give high contrast a try. This style is identified by bringing in elements that are essentially opposites of each other. While one might assume this translates into a busy and overwhelming room, the end results of high contrast rooms are often really impactful and dramatic. High Contrast Black and White BedroomA classic pairing is black and white. We love the additional botanical elements to infuse the room with a natural element as well as a dash of color.

Trend Alert: Cool Cobalt Blue Decor

2

With autumn on our tail, you’d think we would be starting to think about warm, earthy colors, but in 2014 we’re moving away from the home decor status quo. This fall we’re going to see a spike in cool saturated colors making its way into homes, specifically the striking cobalt blue. This gorgeous shade works perfectly in almost any room. It’s relaxing in your bedroom, enticing in a living room and clean in your kitchen. It’s a beautiful color to use on your walls, or, if you’re just trying it out, as an accent color. Pair it with yellows for a high contrast look, or with different shades of blues and grays for a more muted approach.
