We’d like to tell you that we work very hard to make a living at our little company called Design Ideas. But the truth is, we don’t. We play very hard to make our company a success.
Don’t worry, you aren't alone. We all go through the picture-perfect catalogs, magazines, blogger’s Instagram accounts and may even laugh out loud when seeing their spotless kitchens. Their countertops don’t have one smudge, everything is white and clean, the dishes look as though they just came from the store, and how do they always manage to have fruit with no bruises or weird bumps?

Something that we lack as homeowners is the ability to see our home with fresh eyes. We spend so much time living in our house that we forget what it's like to walk in for the first time. That's why it's so fun to listen to first reactions from guests. As the homeowner, you can be reminded of those "wow factors" that make your house a home. On the other hand, as the guest, you are able to pick out the pieces that give the boldest first impression, then go home and get to work! Here are three things that I noticed guests raving about when invited into my home.

Friends, it's time. Time for bonfires, sweaters, and all of our favorite high-calorie snacks and drinks that kind of (but not really) taste like pumpkin. With the change of seasons comes a welcomed change of scenery, both outside and inside your home! All the stores have officially brought out all of their Halloween-inspired items, which usually involve creepy crawlers, black cats, and witch hats. While those can certainly get people in the fall spirit, we have a few interior solutions that won't send your guests screaming.

As seen in Woman's Day Magazine, woven textures and woodland vibes are all the rage this fall.
