This morning I opened the Home and Garden section in the newspaper and proceeded to read a decorating column about fall decor. I was horrified – I reached for a bag to breathe into because I began to hyperventilate. Hay bales on my porch??? Corn and gourds on my coffee table? Plaid and flannel??? Oh please just stop the pain. If any of those items ever appear in my home you all have a right to slap me.
So – in contrast to traditional fall decor I offer you an alternative because it’s simply the right thing to do.
*just one more thing – I’m not into changing decor for seasons – I’m way too practical – however – it can be fun and doesn’t have to cost a lot.
Dia de los Muertos is just around the corner so decorate with candy skulls to add a festive yet ghoulish accent to your interior. Place on coffee tables, fireplace mantels or in the center of your breakfast table. This photo from Dimitri is delicious!
