There are so many beautiful cards to choose from by designers and artists, that we almost wish Valentine’s Day wasn’t just one day of the year. The clever cards below are some of our favorites.

Color Story: Marsala

4

Pantone has spoken, and the color of the year is a far cry from last year’s Radiant Orchid! This year’s winning shade is described as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red color”, and has a fitting name to boot: Marsala. This beautiful color is a cross between a cool burgundy and a warm terracotta. We can’t wait to see how designers and decorators use this color in the coming year!
088832d0ba98346b98a7f9c75fac4a34We love this color paired with a light blue for an unexpected contrast.

Professor Patches Inspiration

3

When sitting in a college classroom, most people look to their classmates for fashion inspiration. You see a cute bag across the way, a nice pair of boots on your neighbor next to you, but rarely do you look at the person at the very front of the room. We’re talking about the older professor in the stereotypical tweed jacket with the suede elbow patches. We’re taking a cue from that academic style, and imparting it into some of our favorite fall fashions in the way of elbow patches! Elbow patches instantly add a little something to an otherwise typical sweater or cardigan.  Sequin Patched Shirt

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

Autumnal Entryway Inspiration

With the first day of autumn falling shortly upon us, we thought it was appropriate to welcome fall into out homes by embracing the season as the first thing guests see upon entering the home. Fall brings in a warmer, richer set of colors, and the first chills of the season make the home a welcome respite for those looking to warm up. What better way to represent the season than by making your entryway as autumnal as possible? Check out these beautiful decor setups that are perfect for the start of the season! 7b492b4bebcce5933c08d2d468c6b8eb (1)
