Decluttering Before the Holiday Chaos

Ahh, the sweet smell of November. Can you hear those sleigh bells ringing? Or smell that pumpkin spice scent? We sure can. Now that we are that much closer to the two major holidays of the year, we are (inevitably) that much closer to having to make sure our homes are as clean and tidily kept as possible for all those guests and parties. It can seem like a daunting task, so we wanted to let you in on two tips to get you started in decluttering your stuff while still making sure your home is nicely decorated and presentable.


Categorizing your items into seasonal uses is one of the first things you could do in order to minimize which items you still want to leave out on display. Take down any summer-esque decorations, random knick-knacks, or anything that doesn’t fit your fall theme. Thinking about it in terms of what fits the season will make it a bit easier to determine what you should stay and what should get put away (for now).


Once you’ve determined what is staying for the fall and winter seasons, it’s time to put them away. How, you might ask? There are many options you can take when it comes to how you organize things that are not currently in use – you can throw them under the bed, pile them up in the garage, or in the corners of your house and hope that no one asks about it. But is that most effective? Certainly not.

Instead, we suggest investing in a few boxes (very cost effective) that double as decor. You can find these at Target, Walmart, or IKEA to name a few places. Most of the time, you can buy a small shelf to store them in – feel free to mix and match patterns, colors, etc., to also spruce up your space at the same time. We have also included a few of our favorite picks for shelves (on sale)!

If you are wanting a more durable, stylish option, investing in a chest or storage ottoman might be one of the best decisions for you. Easily a statement piece, they can really liven up the appearance of your living room or bedroom, and often times double as a small table/space to place more decor on top. Be sure to check out a few of our picks (that are also on SALE)!

The Perfect Spots To Incorporate Pumpkins Into Your Home

Bree here, from Home Zone Furniture.

Treat your home to some fall flair this October with the perfect array of pumpkins! These decorative gourds are an inspired addition to any room, not just the front porch. The possibilities are endless, but these are my personal favorite ways to display pumpkins in my home this autumn.

On the porch

The traditional way to incorporate pumpkins into your home is with a beautiful porch display. Whether you go for classic orange pumpkins or prefer the trendy white or striped varieties, pumpkins are an easy way to decorate because they fit everyone’s style and budget.

Carving a few pumpkins is certainly an October tradition, but leave a few untouched so they’ll last you until Thanksgiving. Instead of carving, you could also try painting the pumpkins with autumn motifs. It’s a kid-friendly craft that will also lengthen the lifespan of your pumpkins.

In the kitchen

Nothing says autumn like the scent of pumpkin spice wafting from the kitchen. If you carve your pumpkins, save the seeds, wash them off, sprinkle them with salt and stick them in the oven for a salty snack. For delicious baked goods, try pumpkin bread, or treat your family to pumpkin waffles. When cooking up your pumpkin favorites, don’t forget to add in cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. These three spices will immediately remind you of autumns past and make you long for fuzzy socks and a crackling fire!


Whether you’re entertaining or not this season, an autumn centerpiece with pumpkins is a rustic addition to any central surface. Creating a pumpkin centerpiece for your table is largely a freeform art and works best with easy-to-maneuver mini pumpkins. Start the centerpiece with some thick greenery, then add in the pumpkins and other seasonal blooms until the arrangement seems complete and complements the room it’s situated in.

Serving dish

Hosting a Halloween party? Try using a pumpkin as a serving platter. To do this, cut open a pumpkin just as you would if you were carving it, and scoop out the insides. Once the pumpkin is cleared, fit a plastic serving bowl into the pumpkin — you might have to adjust top cutout of the pumpkin accordingly. This little entertainment trick will keep your food from tasting like pumpkin and create a festive serving dish!

Accent colors

Show your seasonal spirit by incorporating pumpkin accent colors throughout your home, from the living room to the bedroom. Traditional colors inspired by the pumpkin patch, like burnt orange, golden yellow and hunter green, will automatically bring a sense of warmth to your space and will last you all the way until the holiday season. In order to make these colors easy to swap out, use them sparingly. Try accent pillows on the couch in the den, a throw blanket at the foot of the bed, or a tablecloth on the dining room table.

How do you bring the beauty of the autumn landscape into your home?

Make Over Your Bedroom With A Few Key Changes

Bree here, from Home Zone Furniture.


At the end of the day, there’s nothing more comforting than coming home to a beautiful bedroom. Whether your style is traditional, boho or contemporary, we can all agree that the perfect bedroom is one that promotes relaxation and rejuvenation.

If you’re feeling uninspired by the state of your bedroom, making just a few small changes can make a surprisingly big impact on your sleep space.


The quickest way to reinvent your bedroom is to change up its color palette. Try rich jewel tones, such as deep plum and moss green, for a cozy, fall-ready atmosphere. For something a little more year-round, go with classic neutral shades like slate gray, cream or light blue.

Once you pick your color palette, make it consistent throughout the room. A disjointed color selection can make your bedroom feel cluttered. Add splashes of color by painting an accent wall, adding picture frames, and choosing the perfect throw for the foot of your bed.


New textiles are essential to a bedroom makeover. After all, what fosters a relaxing atmosphere more than fabulous bed linens? Start with sheets. Do you want flannel for extra warmth? Percale to keep cool? Once you choose your preferred material, determine the color by referring to your duvet cover or throw blanket. Most likely, one of these components will have a print of some sort. In that case, look at all of the layers together to confirm that their colors, textures and prints coordinate.

Not only will new bed linens make your bedroom look drastically different, but they’ll make it feel different, too. Hello, sweet dreams!


If a remodel of your bedroom floors isn’t in the cards for you this season, no worries. You can fake a big change simply by adding or removing a rug. If you currently have a rug in your bedroom, take it out for a rustic, bare-floors look. On the other hand, if your floor is bare (with either wood or carpet), experiment with adding an area rug or two. Adding single or overlapping rugs in different sizes and shapes creates a warm, comfy atmosphere perfect for fall and winter. Be sure your rugs complement the color palette you’ve already selected to ensure you craft a harmonious space.


Last but not least, rethink your furniture situation. For a budget-friendly option, rearrange your bedroom furniture to give you a fresh perspective and utilize the space in a different way. For more permanent changes, consider brand-new bedroom furniture. Whether you’re looking for a bed frame with personality, nightstands with extra storage or an entire bedroom set, we’ve got options that will help you compose the bedroom of your dreams.

How will you be transforming the look of your bedroom for fall and winter?
