As soon as we sold our last leather chairs with our previous home, we started the hunt for new ones. It wasn’t until 6 weeks ago, that we ordered two of these lounge-y top-grain leather chairs for the living room and then, boom, demo started unexpectedly. They’ve been wrapped up and then we finally I thought hey, let’s enjoy them in the office. But this weekend, with some time to myself and an itch in my fingertips–I started playing with layouts and finishes in the living room and before I knew it, I unrolled a too-small rug for the space, and plugged in a floor lamp and even hung a picture on the wall. It felt so good to have a small corner of our home feel normal. And to see our things in a space that we haven’t had the chance to really use yet. We’re so anxious! We’re so excited!
Our home has always welcomed fall colors easily. I think it’s just the type of decor I naturally gravitate toward and this home is no different. After my living room nesting, I clipped some branches from the yard, and lit my favorite fall candle and found the perfect white pumpkin at the grocery store. But for the most part, fall decor doesn’t have to be literal.
Swap out your floral stems for something more leafy and fall colored. Scents will go a long way (even if it’s still hot outside). Textiles bring Fall indoors more than anything–I linked a few great pillows (for a great price below along with a bunch of other budget-friendly decor pieces I gathered for the season!

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.
