Room Themes
Porch– Ready for seasonal entertaining, the table is set with vibrant floral dishware washed in red, orange, and terracotta blends. Experience inspiring décor and creative touches for your own upcoming seasonal gathering.

Dining Room – This could be the setting of a quiet wilderness retreat with decorative pieces inspired by stag and beast. Plaid patterns and muted fall tones are polished with unexpected gold accents to reflect a true image of elegant refinement.

Living Room – There’s a warm invitation to stay awhile and unwind. Elegant furniture adds a formal element that is regal and yet cozy. Warm neutral colors of tan and ivory wash the room with a comely feel. Natural wood pieces are cleverly placed among leather accents and velvet details.

Sun Room – The perfect place to find yourself when you need to gather your thoughts and have a quiet moment. This outpost is layered in colors to savor the season; tan, soft rust, gentle teal and a gold metallic touch.

Kitchen – A splash of fresh color in turquoise melamine dishware enlivens the room with a cool touch of refreshment. Trending patterns of feathers and leaves echoes the fall season while bringing a modern flair.

Master Bedroom – Sink into the gentle retreat of the master bedroom. Neutral walls of putty grey are a blank canvas to exaggerate Cerulean blue, complemented with golden wheat color. Ivory repeats throughout, dancing around galvanized candles, natural wood fixtures, and ceramic art.

Wine Room – There’s nothing quite like the suavity of enjoying excellent wine and good company. Inspired by the color the year, rich mulberry hues echo throughout. Warm, textural woods fill the scene along with color as rich as the wine you could enjoy in this room.

Guest Bedroom – Henri Matisse would feel right at home if he were the honored guest. Art is carried into everyday pieces that are as delightful as they are beautiful. Bold colors of red, blue, orange, and yellow, pulled from the featured work of art, are repeated in glass bottles and vases throughout the room.

Den – Wall art collages decorate this room. Each with a distinct style; first, family memories are displayed in black and white frames, true and elegant. Next, find a mixed display featuring rich woods; evoking fond memories. Lastly, a quirky, eclectic mix with a vintage flair inspires this display. Creative style is truly unleashed and yet, finds harmony on the walls.

Garage – This space is ready for entertaining, and just in time for football season. A clever use of space; enjoy the crisp fall air while remaining protected from the elements. Set to host a gathering of friends, a tailgate party, or simply hangout.

‘She’ Shed – Ladies, it’s your turn to take over this outdoor space! A backyard get-away, complete with lounge chairs and a bistro table, set to enjoy some well-deserved downtime. Vibrant colors decorate the space to channel your inner Bohemian spirit.

Outdoors – Fall elements are in full swing, with pumpkins, gourds, mums, crocus and planted containers full of fall favorites. A touch of whimsy is added with decorative birdhouses all around. Featuring a local artist, his creative pieces can be seen throughout.
