Inspiration for Fall Decorating and Entertaining

Camille Styles- book image

Most people talk about “spring cleaning” but in my house, fall is when I get the urge to tackle a deep clean and move everything. I swap out the light and bright colors of summer for heavier blankets and darker colors for accessorizing. I’ve also started adding to my collection of decorating and lifestyle books and bookmarking my favorite images and tips for future contemplation. While looking at my growing list of must reads, I’m excited to see an increasing mix of titles from design bloggers alongside the traditional interior designers. Some of the traditional and popular interior designers can feel a little intimidating, but still provide beautiful aspirational ideas. The new design bloggers incorporate a little more “how” into their approach creating a terrific balance of high – low when tackling a redecorating project. I'm also loving the "lifestyle" book that mixes a few categories: cooking, decorating, fashion, and entertaining. A few I’m collecting now are:

1. Sarah Style by Sarah Richardson
