With the passing of the Labor Day holiday we can officially say that summer is in the past, and we look forward to cooler days, football games and cider mills. Well, there aren’t really any cider mills near me in southwest Florida, but you get the idea!

It might be time for some simple and budget friendly seasonal updates in your home as well. Looking for a few ideas? Here are several that will look great with just about any style of home decor.

Fall colors are earthy, natural shades of brown, green and beige. You might choose a soft aqua as an accent color, or, go down a different road and bring in a deep pumpkin for color. You choose the accent.

Use this palette on walls, floors, window treatments, in room accents and artwork.

Try this idea for a real room refresher: Remove everything except the largest pieces, then bring in accents of furniture and accessories made from natural elements such as wood, wicker and cotton, using the color palette established above. Accents of iron work well, too.

Keep everything very simple with a ‘less is more’ philosophy. Look for patterns with subtle, natural prints.

You’ll create not only a refreshingly simple, natural space, but also a great backdrop for the holiday decorating that will follow in the months to come.

Coffee Time Thoughts...New Lampshades for an exciting, fresh look!

Freshen up the look of a room with new lampshades. Change the style and/or shape. Just make sure that the measurements of the new shade match the shade you are replacing. Consider a different shade color as well if it suits your decor style. And, once you make the switch, you might even put the ‘new’ lamp in a totally different room or space.
