Whew! This summer has just flown by, hasn't it? We've been very busy here in NE Ohio, and have made tons of amazing memories. I got to see my baby brother get married, I had fabulous floor seats at the Bruno Mars show for my birthday, and we even took our first family vacation. I have to say, this has been one of the best summers ever, and I am sad to see it come to an end.
As wonderful as summer is, I have to admit, I am pretty darn excited to welcome fall. First of all, my teenager is back in school. This allows me a LOT more peace and quiet during normal working hours. Don't get me wrong, I adore my son. It's just that he, like many teens, can be pretty loud and boisterous, usually at the worst times possible. And when HE gets all riled up, so do the little ones. Not fun. Not fun at all. So back to school season allows me to get more done, both with the kids and the blog.
Another reason I absolutely love the fall months is because it gives me an excuse to decorate. After a busy summer, why not spruce up your space for fall, right? Anyway, my favorite decor for fall is all about exotic looks and bold colors. I absolutely adore Indian and Moroccan-style decor. The fantastic, lush fabrics, vibrant jewel-tones, and intricate designs are just my style. That's why I fell head-over-heels in love with the Desert Caravan Collection at World Market.
This gorgeous collection of home decor items offers a wide variety of desert-inspired looks that are perfect for the fall season. There are so many colors, textures, and styles to choose from. While I absolutely go nuts for the bright, bold jewel tones, there are a lot of more neutral looks to choose from as well. That's one of the things I love most about the globally-inspired decor from World Market. They always seem to have the perfect pieces to suit any style.
Here are some of my top home & decor picks for fall, as seen in the collage above:
Aren't these items just spectacular? I just love the warmth and richness they provide. I truly believe that some unexpected pops of color can do wonders for any space. Something about warm, jewel-tones just feels homey and welcoming to me. I have already started my fall decorating, and plan to incorporate many of these products into our home. In fact, I have a decor wish list a mile long, from the Desert Caravan Collection alone!
