DS Tip Of The Week Fall Design: Preparing the Nest

For many people, Fall is a favorite time to decorate the home. It’s a time when we return back to our routines as school begins again, and the carefree days of summer drift into a distant memory. It’s also a great time to prepare our nests (homes) for the long winter months.

For the next couple weeks our Decorating Solutions Tip of the Week is going to focus on Fall Design! This week’s tip comes from Interior Designer Laura Hoffman. Laura works at our Appleton store, and helps customers in the area create the homes of their dreams.

Laura also loves to spend time in her kitchen. She says that as it gets cooler, she loves to bake, and make hearty soups and warm breads.  

So how does the idea of comfort food translate into interior design? Pretty simply! As Laura explains, “I love to bring in lanterns, gold candles, white lights and warm toasty throws on my sectional. I also enjoy bringing in some dried hydrangeas and Chinese lanterns along with yellow twig dogwood branches, pine cones, and white and orange pumpkins to decorate my mantle. I toss some beautiful fall-colored pillows around my living room, with a couple blingy ones as well.”

You can also fill a big wooden bowl with green and red apples and set it on your table. And don’t forget to give your exterior a little fall flair–place a beautiful fall wreath on your front door and wait for your guests to arrive.

In addition to our wide variety of accessories at Steinhafels, you likely have some of these items in storage, in your yard, or you can check out a local Farmer’s Market for gourds and other fall-inspired plants! Our designers are hard at work on many more quick and easy design tips for you. Check in next Monday for another fall inspired #DSTipOfTheWeek.
