There are three stages to decorating for fall in our house: pre-October, Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Pre-October—the days between the beginning of autumn and October 1st—and Thanksgiving have similar décor, with just a few minor changes.  And then there’s Halloween, my favorite holiday!

INCORPORATE FALL TOUCHES TO YOUR HOME

 

fall

Ladies and gentlemen, autumn has officially begun!  For us here at the Poiesz household, September marks the beginning of “Decorating Season” and I couldn’t be more excited.  There’s just something about this time of year that makes my heart happy.  Maybe it’s how the season brings everyone together or the fact that it’s no longer burning hot outside.  Whatever the case is, it’s a magical time that comes with its own set of traditions.

BATHROOM MAKEOVER IN 5 EASY STEPS

 

FullSizeRender_1

Bathrooms are by far the easiest rooms to decorate.  Even though some may disagree (which is more than OK), the reason why they’re easy to decorate is because you always think of accessibility first and then the design.  You want to make sure that everything you need in the morning before you leave the house is front and center, and whether you realize it or not, you always decorate around that.

When I think about our kitchen, I think about our happy place.  It is that one room where I spend A LOT of time in, whether I’m home alone with the pup, with my husband, or with friends and family.  The kitchen is a special place that brings everyone together, and that is why it has to be both beautiful and functional.

OUR DINING ROOM PROGRESS: PHOTOS AND PLANS

 

dining room

When we discussed our “musts” when it came to buying a house, one of the top 3 was a formal dining room.  We both grew up with big families and dinner around the table, and this was something we weren’t going to budge on.  The house we ended up buying has the most beautiful dining room and it was a strong selling point.  We love the height, the molding, the natural light, the open space… we love all of it!  That doesn’t mean this room didn’t come with its own set of challenges.

When I think about being outdoors, I immediately fantasize about being in the south of France sitting outside with my feet touching the gravel, while surrounded by olive trees and lavender, sipping on rosé.  I know this dream sounds far-fetched being that I live in Nashville, TN, but I believe that I can use this as inspiration for our backyard and patio.  You gotta start somewhere, right?

gender-neutral mantle

I guess by now it’s safe to say that I am very into gender-neutral everything.  For me it is as simple as I live with a man and want our home to look like us, and not me.  Meaning, I want our home to look like both a man and a woman live there.  This is something that most people really don’t think about when decorating their spaces.  Let’s face itwhen you live with a man, it’s the woman who mostly does the shopping and decorating, and this is where girly everything starts.
