With Labor Day in our rearview mirror, we’re excitedly looking ahead to the next season! (Come on, boots and sweater weather!)
It’s a great time of year to take a look around your home and make some easy updates. Fall decor doesn’t have to include pumpkins and burlap! Think richer colors and earthy accents. Here are a few things we’ve been inspired by lately…

We’re often asked, what is the difference between an interior designer and a decorator? It’s a good question – it seems like everyone is a designer or decorator or stylist these days! Interior design and decorating are related; however, one requires a professional degree and the other does not.
Here’s how the Council for Interior Design Qualification explains the main differences:
“Many people use the terms ‘interior design’ and ‘interior decorating’ interchangeably, but these professions differ in critical ways. Interior design is the art and science of understanding people’s behavior to create functional spaces within a building. Decoration is the furnishing or adorning of a space with fashionable or beautiful things. In short, interior designers may decorate, but decorators do not design.
