It is almost time for turkey, pumpkin pie, and egg nog. Can you believe it?! We are closing in on the holiday season, friends, and it is a great time to keep your eyes peeled for fun pieces that can become part of your holiday decor and tablescapes. Before you can start collecting take some time to figure out who you want to be this holiday. For some of you this may be obvious. Maybe your are hollywood regency through and through and this style is clear throughout your home. Perhaps some of you enjoy taking a bit of a departure from your everyday decor during the holidays or when you throw a sweet soiree. Either way having a general direction in mind will keep your eye focused when you hit the antique markets, thrift stores, or ebay!
This concept certainly has a feminine edge so make sure you’ve got a nice scotch handy for the boys in your life! Think the softer side of holiday colors if you want to go pretty to the max. Soft pink and minty greens and muted gold accents. Balance out these soft tones with deep burgundy, deep jewel toned teals, and warm leathery browns. Bring in some soft texture with these sweet throw pillows. Chose pieces that whisper ladylike. Beautiful crystal barware and a lace inspired table runner will do the trick.
Is sleek and clean where you like to hang your hat? Keep your party modern and chic with lots of black and white with hints of metallic. This look is a great place to mix those metallics. Keep layering and patterns minimal and let the repetition of black and white and textures lead the way. I LOVE a good white out when it comes to holiday styling!
I just love the easy “I woke up like this” feeling of a bohemian home. This look feels as though it has been collected over a lifetime. To achieve this look you can not shy away from color and pattern. Layer, layer, and layer some more! Be sure you have an easy going organic element. Keep arrangements light hearted and not over worked.
Leaves changing, cozy sweaters, bringing out boots—It’s no surprise fall is a fan-favorite season, especially on our Facebook and Pinterest accounts!
We’re excited to celebrate the season with some of our favorite bloggers with the 2015 Finding Fall Home Tours! Our posts are acting as a virtual home tour. We’re the first stop and you can follow along each day from one blogger home to the next from Monday through Friday. All of the bloggers are sharing their homes decorated for fall to provide ideas and inspiration for real home owners. To kick off this year’s Finding Fall Home Tours filled with inspiring home ideas from some of our favorite bloggers we thought we’d get started by sharing our most-shared autumn content over the years! Drumroll, please….

Hi all, Michael Wurm, Jr. of Inspired by Charm here! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the deep, rich, saturated colors, the hearty and flavorful foods, and the pleasantly reassuring smells of leaves, pumpkin, and spices. As the warm temperatures of summer fade and the frost covers the landscape, people quickly move inside.

This year, instead of escaping from the outdoors, I’m encouraging you to embrace it! Grab some pumpkins, your dining room table, and a couple throws. Then call your friends and invite them over for a Fall Garden Party. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite fall-inspired table elements to make your dinner magical and unforgettable! Where are the chairs you might ask? Grab a few bales of straw, cover them with a blanket or rug, and you’ll have all the seating you need. Plus, after the party, you can use them to decorate your house for the season. I even dug through the BHG recipe archives to plan a delicious, simple, and hardy menu your guests will love. With the planning finished, it’s time to party!
