Dressing Your Home for Fall at Living Savvy

Although it’s still fall, last week had a certain chill in the air that felt more like winter, and I really wasn’t ready for it! The colors of the landscape are beautiful this time of year, but I find myself wanting to stay inside sipping pumpkin spice lattes beside the fireplace cozied up with a good book- you? Shorter days and colder weather may be downsides to the season, but I always look forward to decorating this time of year.

Adding layers, textures and new colors to your home for fall really isn’t all that difficult. To make it easy for you, I’m over at Living Savvy today sharing some of my favorite home decor picks for this season. You’ll be spending a lot more time indoors, after all, so you may as well make your home beautiful, cozy, and comfortable.

Designer Interview at Setting for Four

How was your weekend? We finally had a couple days of sunshine and finished adding new cedar mulch around the trees and flower beds in our yard. We also had a patch of grass beside our deck that grew rather poorly, and decided to dig it out and replace it with the same grey limestone we have around our front porch, other side of the house, and the rest of the deck. Who needs a workout when you’re doing yard work like that? (To say I’m a bit sore this morning is an understatement!)

I’ll be sharing update photos of our yard soon, but today I wanted to send you over to read my designer interview at Setting for Four. Heather is a fellow Canadian who writes a fantastic blog focused on creating a beautiful home. Currently she’s studying decorating and design, and was looking for a little insight on how I got started, what my decorating style and philosophy is, how I approach a new project, and more.

Designing Women Interview at Signature Style Magazine

Yesterday we were blasted with a huge blizzard that is still underway, but has managed to slow down a bit. I decided to put the plans I had on hold for today and possibly pull out my sewing machine and make a few new pillow covers instead. There’s no way I’m bundling up and heading out there!

Right now I feel like we’re in between seasons so I’m not ready to completely switch my decor over to spring. Instead, I think a few gradual changes will help shake off this wintery feeling that seems to be hanging on (someone needs to tell Old Man Winter it’s time to go!).

On another note, today I’m excited to be over at Signature Style Magazine sharing a bit about my design philosophy, how I got started in design, what a typical day is like for me, and a bit more. I’d love to see you there! Author Shandra Ward is a talented interior and event designer with over 20 years experience. Her work has been featured on HGTV, Houzz, Hostess with the Mostess, and more.
