Capture the season and welcome guests with Autumn wreaths that will transition well into the holidays.

A festive way to welcome guests or bring a bit of nature indoors, wreaths are just that touch your home needs to feel like Fall.
Lovely Little Vignettes member Deemurph created this colorful Fall corner in her home with a handsome Danish bar cart and some other finds from her favorite vintage store in Los Angeles, 45 Three Modern Vintage. I love how the warm colors are seasonal, but not in a kitschy way. I don't see any pumpkins or Indian corn here, but this lovely little vignette certainly feels timely.
The great thing, she points out, is that it will be "easy to change up this corner as the seasons transition." She says, "All I have to do is change the painting and my flowers . . . and VOILA! . . . a whole new scene!" Looks great, don't you think?

On Thursday, I posted a photo of the Halloween window display at Marc Jacobs's San Francisco store. Not surprisingly, a few of you called it "cute" and "cool." But community member Mica said the windows in Jacobs's West Village, New York store are "way crazier," with "a zombie swamp diorama in all three windows." She shared this photo of the window display. I must say, these decorations do look much spookier, but the San Francisco store takes the cake for chic and cute.

Leave it to Marc Jacobs to make Halloween décor chic, humorous, and pumpkin-free. Strolling through San Francisco, I stumbled upon his window display and I fell absolutely in love with his pink cow ghost. In her oversize coat and pink skin, the mannequin looks a bit tortured, too. His painted paper moon looks quite realistic, as does his flying tissue bat. I only wish I had room in my foyer to spook the trick-or-treaters with a mooing ghost.

Orange isn't just for pumpkins. While it's one of the more unusual colors for painting the exterior of your home, it can look great when executed well. I especially love the bright, poppy colors of this home. While it's a bold choice, I think that the colors work really well together. The turquoise blue outlining the door frame offsets the orange of the exterior, as well as the bright colors of the door panels.
Have you ever considered painting your house orange? If not, take a look at the gallery and see if you might reconsider.

Want to add some easy Fall style to your next table setting? Then take this tip from event designer extraordinaire Preston Bailey. Glue Fall leaves (especially desiccated ones, like these) to the exterior of plain glass votives. The candlelight will add a beautiful glow to the table, and illuminate the shape and details of the leaves.
Now is the time to start thinking about your Halloween décor. But before you go deck your house in all black and orange, consider another color. Lovely Little Vignettes member Bonchic1 chose a pink and orange palette, rendering her Halloween décor more chic than spooky, yet still festive. She also used glittery pumpkins, crystal candlesticks, and a mirrored tray, creating a truly glamorous display. I love it! I know the Halloween season is short, but I've always been cautious of having a black and orange palette in my home; it doesn't look right for some reason. So I'm really inspired to expand my Halloween colors now!
