Tobi’s Top 10

Sectional Sofas

For this month’s Top 10, I’ve decided to focus on sectionals.  Sometimes you just need a bit more sofa!  Some rooms yearn to be completely casual.  If you’ve got a large family, or simply want to spread out, a well-designed sectional might be right for you.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in this morning for “Design Time with Tobi Fairley” on KATV’s Good Morning Arkansas.  I talked all about getting your home in the spirit of the fall.  As fall approaches we begin changing our wardrobes to reflect the changing seasons.  Why not do the same for your home?

Today on the blog I thought I’d show everyone some great fall decorating ideas from around the internet.

Etch Them

Southern Living has a great idea gallery on their website with new and creative ways to use pumpkins in your fall decorating.

Stack Them

I love all of the creative ways that the folks at Southern Living are using pumpkins in this great article.  You can view it HERE.

Southern Living also has a great article with tips on putting together a fall display to greet your guests using mums.

Another great idea book I found online with lots of fall inspiration is over at Better Homes & Gardens.

Harvest Greetings

I love all of the great ideas found in BH&G’s “All Harvest Long” and they’re easy to implement in your own home.

Here are a few products to add instant fall color to your home:

Montana Stripe Woven Cotton Rug
Dash & Albert

 

Whisp Ceramic Dinnerware
Serena & Lily

 La Fiorentina Pillow
Shop Ten 25

 Cashmere Throw

Restoration Hardware

Enjoy the cooler temps and changing colors ahead! – Tobi
