It’s FINALLY that time of year again! Leaves are starting to fall from the trees, temperatures are dropping (unless you live in NC and it’s still sweltering hot) and the Pumpkin Spiced Latte has arrived; HELLO FALL! Since I can’t curl up in cozy sweaters by the the fire, I decided to add touches of Fall around our new home to help me get in the spirit! Below, I’m sharing 5 easy ways to add a little Fall to your home!

  1. PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS! Who doesn’t love a great pumpkin for Fall? I grabbed a couple felt pumpkins from Home Goods and swapped them with some of the vases I already had. I also added some Fall-themed potpourri to the coffee table (the mini orange pumpkins). Not only are they adorable, but they smell delicious too!

  2. UPDATE YOUR COFFEE TABLE: My coffee table is one of the first things I change with the different seasons! I recently stopped into one of my favorite local boutiques for home decor and gifts located in Cameron Village, The Local Squirrel! The Local Squirrel has the BEST selection of Fall-themed accents + great jewelry, shoes, books and more! I decided to swap out my summer colored books for a more neutral palette that reminded me of Fall. Coffee table books are a must! I also added a few other finds from the Local Squirrel including this fun chevron tray, white picture frame and yummy smelling candle! I cannot say enough great things about The Local Squirrel, and if you live in the Raleigh area, you have to check them out! I promise it will become a favorite for you too!

  3. FALL-THEMED PILLOWS + A COZY THROW: Look for pillows with lots of texture and pattern and that are also in a Fall color palette (think oranges, red and yellows). I found this fun fringe pillow at The Local Squirrel and knew it needed to be mine. I also added a matching cozy throw (also found at The Local Squirrel) for a touch of cozy.

  4. CANDLES: Fall is more than just mums on the porch and cute pumpkins, it’s all about the heavenly smells too! I love to grab a couple of Fall-scented candles to burn throughout the season. I love the one I found from The Local Squirrel because it smells good and looks cute!

  5. NEW COFFEE MUGS: I like to update my mug collection in the Fall for all of the warm beverages I know I will be drinking. Hot coffee in the morning, apple cider, hot cocoa….you name it, and ill be drinking it! I snagged this adorable mug from The Local Squirrel and can’t wait to put it to use. I’m thinking a few of my girlfriends will need one for their Christmas present (too soon?).

Try one of these tips or do them all! Your house will be cozy, smelling yummy and full of Fall in no time!

OK, I realize this took me wayyyyyyy too long, but I am so excited to FINALLY share my Seattle apartment with you guys starting with my home office tour. It's been so fun to have a space that is all my own (although often times taken over by my husbands junk-we only have 900 square feet people) and allows me to be inspired and create for you guys. It's definitely small and being taken over by clothes, but I love it! As you will see from the rest of the apartment, we went with a netural bohemian theme. My office has tons of natural light (when it's not raining) and was pretty easy to decorate considering the size. I basically have one wall in the office that isn't a sliding door or windows, so I knew it needed to make a statement. I have always loved gallery walls but have never been confident in my ability to style one, so I called upon Minted and their personal art styling service.

The Art Styling Service from Minted is seriously amazing! It's super easy and convenient and before you know it, you will have a perfectly designed gallery wall. I simply took an easy style quiz so my designer could have an idea of my personal style and get a taste for the things I liked. Next, I uploaded photos of the exact space where I wanted my gallery wall to hang (iphone photos worked perfectly). My stylist (Kathlyn-she was amazing) then sent two options to choose from. She included pictures of what they would look like hung on the walls so I could visualize for myself.

Kathlyn did an amazing job and I actually loved both choices, but I ended up going with the second option because it had a little more color. I didn't include much color in my apartment except for subtle pops of blush pink, so I decided to be a little bit more adventurous with my office. Also, I immediately fell in love with the vintage car print. This design reminds me of Old Havana which is definitely on my bucket list of places to visit.

After I made my choice, I sent Kathlyn the dimensions of my wall and she sent back the correct sizes for each piece of art. Kathlyn then placed each of the items in my Minted shopping cart. This was super helpful because I simply had to checkout (I didn't even stress about making sure I had picked the right sizes).

After about a week, I received the art and Ben and I hung the pieces according to the directions outlined from Kathlyn. Seriously, the whole process could not have been easier. It was SO helpful to have someone put together a gallery wall for me without all the stress. Especially for a girl who has a hard time making decisions when it comes to home decor. I am in love with the way it turned out and can't wait to show you the rest of the pieces we picked!

The Minted art styling services start at just $79 for an art wall and $99 for an art room! It's seriously like having your own personal interior designer minus the insane cost. I couldn't recommend it more.
