The Best of Fall

It might still feel like Summer outside, but the first day of Fall was this past Sunday! Have you started to decorate your home for the Fall season? It can be hard to find seasonal decorating inspiration when it’s a constant 90 degrees in the state of Florida, but we have compiled a few of our favorite ideas to help get you started this season!

  1. Etched Pumpkins

Decorate the front steps of your home with pumpkins in various shapes, sizes and colors. Choose a few moderately sized pumpkins to etch the numbers of your house address into the sides of the pumpkin and arrange them accordingly. Instead of using your home address you can also choose to etch initials, a name, or fall leaves.

  1. Fall Arrangements

Spend an afternoon in your local Hobby Lobby, or Michael’s to select various fall foliage and a vas to create an arrangement.  We recommend selecting red maple leaves for the focal point of the arrangement surrounded with other fall essentials. Once it’s completed, place on a mantle, window sill or side table.  

  1. Floral Pumpkins

This is the perfect centerpiece for a Thanksgiving dinner or other Fall gathering. Select a pumpkin from a local patch, preferably one with a flat bottom, and then stop by your local nursery for fall  flowers and plants.  We recommend viola, pansies, thyme, and greenleaf. To get started, cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin, scoop out the seeds, clean the inside and outside with a wipe, and line the interior with aluminum foil. Fill the pumpkin ¾ of the way with potting soil and plants.

Hot Interiors

We’re in the midst of summer, and everything is heating up in the interior design world. There are several hot trends right now that we absolutely love!
If you’re planning to update your home’s interior design, or getting ready to move in to your new home within the next couple of months, check out what is trending this season.
Are we missing a trend that you think we need to know about? Tell us more about it on our SeaGate Homes Facebook page!
  1. Green with Envy: Create statement walls with emerald green, one of this season’s hottest colors. A dramatic effect can be created by coordinating gold and black accents in the rooms’ accessories. If emerald green is too bold for your taste, then paint the walls either white or taupe and add emerald green features for a fresh faced look. It will look just as great, and will still be on trend.
  2. Au Natural: This trend is super easy to accomplish with your homes current interior design scheme! Creating an earthy look can be done by adding wooden accents in furniture, flooring and accessories. One great feature about the Au Natural trend is wood comes in several different shades and finishes suitable for all design tastes. Complete the look with a neutral shade on the wall, and one bold accent color such as a deep purple, green or blue. A trial run of the Au Natural trend can be accomplished by replacing the rooms’ current coffee, side and dining tables with rustic wood tables.
  3. Stripes: Wide, Skinny, and Chevron: We cannot stress enough how hot stripes are right now! It doesn’t matter if they are skinny, wide, horizontal, vertical or chevron, everyone wants them in their home! And they are a great way to create an illusion in any room!If you want to create width and space within a room, then wide horizontal stripes are a great option! A room can be given height by adding skinny vertical stripes. A wall accented in chevron is a bold design move that will give the room character! Coordinate the rest of the interior with softer, neutral shades. Vertical, horizontal, and chevron stripes are a big design commitment! If you’re not ready to commit then consider adding furniture and accent pieces with stripes in softer shades that coordinate with your current design scheme.
