When designing or remodeling a home, ceilings usually don’t cross your mind. Typically, they’re flat and white and not thought about again unless repairs are needed. But an exceptional ceiling design, whether it’s in a living room, dining area or the master bedroom, can give the room a unique, individual character that leaves a lasting impression on anyone that steps in.
When designing a mudroom, think of how your family will utilize the space. Smaller children are more likely to hang their coats on a hook, versus opening a door to put on a hanger. Having an open slot to place shoes may be used more frequently than having to pull out a drawer and place shoes inside.
Your mantel and fireplace takes front and center in your living room every day, but during the holidays, it should stand out even more. Because mantels are almost always the focal point of a room, what better place to decorate in the fall than that? Whether your mantel is small or grand, there are so many ways to spruce it up with cute fall decorations. We’ve gathered a few of our favorites below!
Decorate your mantel with pumpkins, but not the orange kind! We love the idea of unusual colored pumpkins, like these gold, white and sage ones. If your home decor doesn’t mesh well with orange, you can still get in the fall spirit with other colors. This look is very modern too, so you’ll definitely stand out from the orange crowd!
