Now that we own our own home, I find myself exorbitantly excited about the idea of switching out summer-like pieces for those of a cosier variety. From smokey scented candles to thick wool knits, I’m slowly but surely transforming each room with just a few minor changes* and there’s just something about the whole thing that literally sets my heart aflutter. And while I always have my eyes peeled for the latest and greatest for our homes, there are a few interior design trends on the horizon that I’m particularly excited about. In light of full discretion, the following list can no doubt be incorporated into your homes’ year round, but they ring especially true at this very moment in time. Here are five 2017 fall interior design trends I’m really looking forward to in the coming months.
*I will be touching on this further in a post coming up, so stay tuned!

Before I delve into today’s post, I wanted to take a quick second to discuss the topic of Friday’s post (you can read it here, if you’d like). I’m absolutely overwhelmed by how many comments, emails, text messages, and dm’s I received all weekend long that ultimately said the same thing, in so many different ways. Continue Reading
Depression and anxiety aren’t something that I talk about often here on the blog, and while I’ve done a lot of work on myself to deal with them, they’re still a very real thing in my life and something that I’ve wanted to discuss more frequently as they arise. I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of seeing perfectly perfect everything online and have recently found myself significantly more drawn to more authentic blogs and Instagram accounts. I’m craving that human connection – something that used to go hand in hand with blogging, but has fallen by the wayside as of late. And while I do my best to keep it as real as possible around here there is, of course, a lot that I just don’t have the chance to share. Continue Reading
So I know it’s not technically fall quite yet, but I tend to jump the gun on the season as it’s one of my favourites. With that in mind, I apologize in advance to the summer enthusiasts that exist out there, but please allow me to indulge in my pre-emptive autumn sins just for a second. If you care to join me, I promise it will be worth it. Because, today? Today I’m chatting all about apple spice granola. It’s healthy, it’s delicious, and it’s filled to the brim with all of those warm fall spices I crave around this time each year. And I mean, let’s be honest, there’s nothing more quintessentially fall than the scent of apples and spice wafting through the entirety of your home on a particularly cool morning. It’s fall embodied and it will single handidly change your breakfast game. Simply grab a hot cup of tea and the recipe below, and enjoy this beautiful new phase of life. Continue Reading
While any change of season typically makes me want to hit the reset button, there’s just something about fall that puts that sentiment into overdrive. Lately, anytime I’m graced with a moment of down time, I can typically be found organizing a drawer, decluttering our basement, or purging a closet in its entirety. I’ve fully subscribed to Marie Kondo‘s sentiment of tossing or donating everything that doesn’t bring me joy, or serve a purpose, and I have to admit it feels good amazing. I’ve slowly but surely gotten rid of almost all of our never-used junk and have been slowly restocking with thoughtful, useful, pieces that make me want to do a happy dance. Between replacing my formerly tattered robe with this guy (which feels like being snuggled by soft kittens and has instantly elevated my morning game), the most flattering white tunic, and fall inspired leggings that can be dressed up or down, here are a few things I’ve purchased lately (or that I seriously have my eye on). A few fall essentials, if you will. Continue Reading
While I know there’s an abundance of incredible home tours that exist out there, as the years go on I find myself getting pickier and pickier with the ones in which make the cut for my house envy vertical. As a result, there are very few in which fully embody my design sensibilities to perfection. While most of them check a lot of the right boxes, it isn’t often that there isn’t a single thing I’d change. So you can imagine my excitement when Alaina, co-founder of The Everygirl, revealed her stunning Chicago greystone just the other week. From the sky high ceilings to the monochromatic palette done in such a way so that it’s anything-but-boring, it’s my personal design perfection in every sense of the word. And you simply need to see it for yourself. (PS – there’s a ton of other photos on their site, plus a video tour, here, if you find yourself craving more) Continue Reading
