Finally, summer is at an end! Although I love the Houston heat, I am really looking forward to embracing all those fabulous fall colors as it begins to cool down, and not only in my wardrobe, but my entire home!

Updating your interior accent colors and home accessories offers a simple and fun way to stay on trend each season without over investing.

This fall season we are particularly excited to put a new spin on the traditional cranberry hue with the 2015 Pantone color of the year, Marsala.
