Happy Fall Y’all

WOWZERS!  Is it fall already?! Between summer ending, adding in a looong vacation, birthdays, and Ring Day for my baby sister, Elizabeth (Gig’ em), we have SO much to catch up on.  Bare with us as we step back into time to recap life and a couple of our designs in the world over the past few weeks.

Hmmm, where to start…we have had the pleasure of working with one of the sweetest couples from Sugarland that needed their newly purchased home to be revamped for their new beginning in the DFW area.  There has been a lot to do and quite a bit of face-lifting on the agenda.  New paint, new bedding, custom draperies, custom shutters, the list goes on and on, but WOW the transformation is unreal!  The project is still in progress so we wanted to show a tiny before and after of the master bedroom paint and custom window treatments.

BEFORE: The master bedroom was a dingy downer before but had great natural sunlight to the room.

AFTER: The “Embellished Blue” (yes, that really was the name of the paint color) not only made the room look larger but added a bit of cheerfulness to the room as well!  These pictures show the color to be a bit more vibrant than it really is.

The sheer linen draperies really warmed up the room.  We loved the detail in the scrolled stitching.

In the mix of working on this project, we started the designing the new YODREAMS YOGURT in Waco!  They are going to have a big GRAND OPENING so those of you Baylor fans, students and locals stop by sometime for a yummy treat.  Pictures are to be taken next week so until then we have this pic for all the suspense and to be a little tease!

With fall being here, we have been switching out our summer decor with garlands of fall foliage, acorn filled hurricanes, mercury glass pumpkins and gourds.  Anyone have some of these??!!  If you don’t, Plush Pumpkins are a must have! We wish they could be out on display year round because we love them so much.

They also have acorns (adorable!), mushrooms and hearts.

Some other ideas on fall decor…

Sometimes prices on these type items start to add up fast, we love trying to mimic the same look on a lower budget.  The pumpkins with lights can occasionally be found at TJMaxx, Ross and Marshalls for a fraction of Pottery Barn’s price.  Birds similar to the crows and black birds (on the front porch pic) can be found at Dollar Tree. And there are many different ways of screen printing images onto fabrics for the antler pillow look. Check out our Pinterest page under the DIY board.

Hope everyone is making their homes picturesque with lots of pumpkins, scarecrows and berry branches!  Once again, HAPPY FALL Y’ALL!
