Get Your Fall On

October 15, 2018 • DesignHome Decor

i read an article last weekend that listed a couple of micro trends in interior design, and it said pink is nearly over. it also said the next ‘it color’ will be peach, which is basically pink with some brown mixed in. so really nothing big is happening in the color trend department, and i guess our home is safe for a little while longer. just as a fun experiment though, i am adding as much pink as possible to discover where my husband’s tolerance level is at. you think he regrets choosing the life with three girls?

my latest find is the TINT THROW from NORMANN COPENHAGEN, which has replaced our black and white CROSS BLANKET. it’s super warm and cozy for long netflix marathons on the sofa, but because it is such a thick quality, it’s perfect to throw on the floor as a play mat for eloise as well.

i’d say blankets are my achilles heel in interior design, but i have little to no resistance to interior design overall so that would’t necessarily be an accurate metaphor. the thing about blankets is – you can really never have enough of them, especially when you have kids. sofa tents, a house for the dolls, living room camps, reading nooks, fairy castles, playing corners… they’re all just one imaginative step away from a tower high heap of blankets.

but my favorite thing to do in this season (if you haven’t watched comedian iliza’s routine about fall, you need to CLICK HERE stat) is to crawl underneath a blanket with a pumpkin spice latte (#pumpkineverything, seriously, watch the routine!) and a book, our WINTER TUNES SPOTIFY PLAYLIST (thank me later) playing in the background and candles burning on every flat surface in a five meter radius. now if only my kids would both go to sleep at eight at night so i could get my fall on.

obviously i’ll have inspired you now to subscribe to that playlist (or go down the rabbit hole that is iliza’s stand-up on youtube) and to grab that romantic novel (or hit ‘replay’ on when harry met sally for the 11 thousandth time), so all you need now is one of these DESIGN THROWS to keep you warm and stylish.

see y’all after hibernation?
