FALL is here and it is absolutely gorgeous outside! The vibrantly colored leaves, the deliciously warm sun and the crisp smell in the air all combine to create the perfect fall experience. But, alas, we can't always spend autumn afternoons barefoot in the sun-warmed grass enjoying the sights and smells of the season. The next best thing? Bring the fall indoors. Here are some of our favorite ways to do just that.
Have you ever wondered why certain smells bring back specific memories or recall certain emotions? The cell receptors in our nose are actually linked to an area in our brain that controls emotion and long-term memory. Smells can become a powerful part of our memory. And, pleasant smells can help create a positive energy and mood in our space. Reed diffusers, candles and wax melts are all lovely ways to bring the scents of fall in to your home or office. Crisp apple, pumpkin, spicy orange and vanilla are some of our favorites. Of course we love the Frasier Fir scent from Thymes - SO yummy! We sell a variety of options - come and check them out!
Pillow covers, festive garlands, seasonal dishes, seasonal gourds and unique decorations can create a festive and inviting space for visitors, but more importantly for you! A fully stocked firewood rack next to the fireplace and warm, soft throws provide comfort on those cooler evenings. Home décor actually plays a really important part in your psychological well being. "Where we are and what surrounds us contributes to our moods, emotions and even our daily behaviors." (www.decoraid.com.) Our shop is stocked with all things fall!
With shorter days and stormy weather, lighting becomes an even more important consideration this time of year. Consider an extra table lamp, candles or even a strand of twinkle lights. Lighting can have a huge impact on your mood and your state of mind.
Enjoy this gorgeous season and come and visit us for not only unique wardrobe items, but also for items to create a beautiful, seasonal home.
