It's officially Fall and, although it still feels a little summery here in San Francisco, I wanted to share my 5 favorite things about the Fall season!
1. Quick and Easy DIY Projects
I think a home is a constant work in progress...that's the fun part! There is always something that can be easily updated to give your space a fresh and modern look. My favorite way to give a room a facelift, is to paint the furniture. Whether it's a new coat of paint in a bold color like this DIY, or some very on-trend palm fronds, this project is so fun and makes such a huge difference to a room! Just a little acrylic paint does the trick!
2. Delicious Recipes
Breakfast is my favorite meal and there's nothing like a warm bowl of oatmeal on a chilly morning. I love this recipe for Carmelized Banana Oatmeal my daughters came up with on their blog. It's sweet and healthy and with brown sugar and cinnamon, it'll make your kitchen smell like Fall!
3. Cozy Bedding
The thought of sinking into a warm, fluffy bed makes me so excited for crisp fall weather! My Morning Dove comforter is so plush and cozy, it's perfect for an evening in bed with a good book.
4. Good Books
I have a book club with some of my friends and I can't wait to dive into our Fall book. It's called Crashing Through: A True Story of Risk, Adventure, and the Man Who Dared to See by Robert Kurson.
5. Favorite Tea
Each day after lunch I make tea for my two graphic designers, Heidi and Kristin, and myself. It's so healthy and comforting and really warms the body and the soul. My favorite tea right now is Peppermint Tea from Trader Joe's. It's caffeine-free, so you can drink it any time and the peppermint is so soothing and relaxing. We love it!
