Keeping Up with Decorating Trends
Just like fashion and beauty, interior design trends change with every season. It might not feel like it in Southern California, but we’re in the midst of fall. It’s time to swap the bright yellow pillows for some cozy knit ones.
If you don’t visit home goods stores frequently, it can be difficult to keep up with the ever-changing styles. Instagram is a great place to do some “research” from home.

A couple seasonal ones: #fallintoautumn and #fallintoyourdeco.
