FALL REFRESH

With the leaves falling fast and the days getting shorter, that can only mean one thing, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Many of our traditional Thanksgiving dinners will look different this year. For those who are still able to host your family and close friends or even partake in a virtual dinner, here are a few quick and easy updates you can do in time before the big day arrives. 

 

1. Repaint your space – Changing the paint color in a room makes the largest impact. Not only does it freshen up the space but it will also give your room a completely new look. This is something you can do on a budget and on a shorter time line. 

 

2. Update window treatments – Whether you choose to do custom or readymade window treatments, they will drastically give your room an updated look. Styles and colors change over the years, here is an easy way to leave a lasting impression on your updated space. 

 

3. New artwork – Along with a freshly painted room and updated window treatments, adding new artwork to your space will pull it all together. This can be something you go out and purchase or even take from other areas around your house. Sometimes just moving art and accessories from room to room will give those pieces a renewed purpose.

NOW IS THE TIME

September has come and gone and the crisp fall air is moving in. Time for pumpkins, flannel, hot chocolate … and the holidays! This year, more than ever, the importance of starting to prepare for the holidays is essential. 

 

As the industry struggles to catch up from COVID, we are seeing the lead times for furniture, case goods, and even accessories at an all time high, on how long it will take the items to be delivered. Something that typically would take 4 weeks, now takes 12. And the items that are imported from other countries are equally at a halt. As frustrating as this can be, we can all plan ahead to create a beautiful fall refresh to our houses. And if you work with a designer, they can help navigate you through everything and find alternatives to finish your space in time. 

 

However your holidays are going to look this year, don’t get caught off guard! Start now to guarantee your house is ready.
