Fall Favorites

September 12th, 2013

It’s happened and I’m ready. I watched the first few leaves fall from the sycamore in front of my house in the cool morning mist, and I couldn’t stop thinking about pumpkin spice lattes and cable knit sweaters and I’m finally ready to welcome fall.

I rounded up a group of furnishings and accessories new for fall from favorite retailers and online shops – it’s a collection of all things warm and wonderful this autumn. fall home decor picks
