With changing weather comes a change in our lifestyles, and this is a great time to cozy up our homes for the coming season. Fall is here and we have some wonderful inspiration for you! Visit our space at Poppyseeds Home Décor Boutique in Stanwood for some of our Fall Decor products.

The most popular design trend right now is Euro/Danish/Swedish Style… a lovely blend of the rusticity of farmhouses, the elegance of European antiques, and the cutting edge of vintage industrial influences. Mix them all together, and you have a fresh way to enjoy Traditional style. Even if you aren't into a house full of antiques, this style is a great way to add character and a sense of history to your rooms. Just one fabulous piece of furniture and the subdued palette of this style will bring it up to date!

Washed in pale, ethereal colors like morning mist gray, fog white, and swaying wheat, this is the new look for Fall and Winter. The colors of nature are brought inside and warmed with fire & candlelight and crystal chandeliers, resulting in warm rooms that feel cozy but live spaciously.

Texture plays a huge role in this style: From sleek silks and satins, to comfortable cotton and linen, to rough burlap and jute, fabrics add dimension and interest. Silver metal and crystal accessories add sparkle and reflect warm light – they truly are the jewelry of your home!

With a subdued palette, your rooms will feel larger and less confining during the coming months of cold weather. It’s easy to incorporate your own décor elements for the upcoming holidays into this style, too… and we’ll be bringing you more ideas & inspiration for holiday decorating soon!

*Don't forget to put our next event on your calendar: Retreat will be bringing more of our wonderful seasonal accents and delicious furnishings to the French Flea Market at Haley's Cottage in Mill Creek, Saturday September 12. Show hours: 10 AM to 8 PM. Click the link on our sidebar for more info!
