Happy September! September is my favorite month and I don’t care who knows it. The kids are all back in school, routines are in loop, and fall is on the cusp–can’t get enough of it really. With that in mind, all I can think about these days is getting my hands on some fall branches. When it comes to branches, I’m all about grabbing a pair of clippers and heading outside to get the real thing, but sometimes what you have outside isn’t what you want, and so faux is the way to go.
The rest of the house is getting transitioned to fall (minus the parts under construction) and like I mentioned in the Fall Decor Essentials post, I’m mostly lighting candles (here are our top 21 favorites), placing cozy blankets, incorporating some gingham, and making the greenery a little less green.
We rounded up all the good ones and and I’m putting them all around the house to inspire some fall spirit, and who knows, maybe I’ll be bringing out the faux pumpkins soon. ;)

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
