Fall Decorating Tips from Down to Earth



It's hard to believe that the autumn season is coming.  Before we know it the crisp, cool fall air will be here!  

Here are a few simple tips from Down to Earth at Gardner Village on what you can do to make your home feel cozy and comfortable this fall.












Be inspired by your favorite things about fall and bring in colors and textures that make you and your home feel warm, bright, and cozy.















There are so many great colors of fall!

Choose four or five colors that suit you and your home and use them repeatedly around your home in different rooms and areas to create harmony in your fall decor.
















Bring the outdoors inside this fall by using elements like burlap, jute, pinecones, and twigs for a more beautiful, natural approach to fall decorating.



















This fall, instead of using obvious "seasonal decor" try going for an overall "feel" of the season and use things that incorporate fall colors and textures like rugs, poufs, ottomans and pillows.

















When going for a "fall feel" in your home, a couple small changes in each room will go a long way.  Just change out few throw pillows and add a cozy throw.


















If you are planning a family gathering for the holidays NOW is the time to order your furniture. 

















To ensure that your home looks and feels great in time for your gatherings be sure to stop by Down to Earth and let our consultants and designers help you order the perfect pieces for your home this fall season!

 Are you planning for Christmas?  A beaded spider is a great gift for friends and family along with a copy of The Legend of the Christmas Spider.  With plenty of color options this creepy but cute spider is sure to excite all who see it.




Kumihumo

Colorful braids have been created for centuries in cultures around the world for utilitarian uses, home and garment d├ęcor, rituals, and religious ceremonies. 

Learn to use a numbered disk and colorful textile fibers to make a patterned circular braid.

 Somewhat similar to boondoggling or friendship bracelets, this is a perfect technique for creating a color coordinating rope for special projects. 






Portable Creation Station

Using a simple TV tray you will create this fun & function Portable Creation Station to sit by your side as you sew.  

No more getting up to head over to the ironing board as you sew, with this creation you will just turn to your side, press and you're back to work.

 Pocket is perfect for holding your sewing essentials.






To Dye For

Have you always wanted to learn the art of dyeing yarn? 

In this AMAZING mini class you will learn the tips and tricks you need to hand paint and/or injection dye two of your very own skeins! 

 Do both skeins the same or mix it up your choice! You will paint the yarn during class and get your skeins back after they have been steamed.




The Perfect Present

Your little one will love these adorable, snugly and hug-able friends.

 A hand-knitted doll with hand-sewn clothes and accessories will be the perfect gift for this holiday season.
