Getting ready for the new season.....

Remember my promise to countdown to Fall and Diwali......well here is the first of many. With the cool air comes my desire to redecorate for the season. The carpets that were rolled away for the summer are back. The cushions change from pastels and lighter hues to more vivid colors. Do you re-decorate with the changing season? If you don't, then I highly recommend it :-) I am not talking about buying new things. Look around you or dig into your cupboards and you just might find things that give your space a new look!!

I bought these fall leaves last season for just a couple of dollars and now they are the centerpiece in my dining room. The silver plated two part server is a flea market find! My plan is to surround myself with hues of  Red, Rust, Gold, 0range and Yellow......it is perfect for Fall and the Festivities ahead.

I heard someone once say, a home needs to be "INTERESTING" and not PERFECT! What do you think? I agree with this sentiment completely. Make your home "YOUR" perfect haven rather than picture perfect! Hmm....okay the last few words came out of nowhere and are mine :-)




Another pick from the Shop at My Dream Canvas. A golden rose......perfect for the new season...

Hi Anu.

My home is FAR from perfect, but I do try to shake it up a bit from season to season.
