For the Kitchen
Homes are meant to be shared with the ones we love, whether it is through hosting an elaborate dinner party for all your friends or simply hosting breakfast for our little ones before school. However, we open our homes up to others one of the greatest faux pas of design is not having enough seating. Poly & Bark is just the company you are looking for to solve all your seating issues.

Perfect for updating your master bedroom or guest bedroom this fall, we love the Grayson Jersey Knit Quilt and Shams. This bedding is elegant yet so incredibly soft and welcoming with its t-shirt soft, jersey-knit material and detailed ruching across the top. Available in heather gray or white, made of 100% cotton knit jersey with a lightweight recycled poly-fill, this quilt offers all-season comfort and class to any bedroom. Pair with the Diamond Weave Cotton Blanket for lightweight, additional warmth during any season. This 100% cotton blanket is soft to the touch and will keep you cozy all year long.
Slip into softness this fall with a new set of sheets from Gryphon.

Believing that your bed should be your happy place, all of Gryphon’s luxury bedding is crafted of the finest Supima® cotton keeping you comfortable and cool all night long.

Look forward to slipping into bed every night this season with a lux sheet set from Gryphon.
If you’re like us, you’ll soon be expecting house guests over the holiday season. With that in mind, now is a great time to put a few finishing touches on your home.
For starters, upgrade your bathroom’s decor with the Better Homes and Gardens Double Soap Pump. This soap pump is made of glass with brushed nickel finish pump heads and a satin finish steel wire caddy. It’s just the right size for most bathroom countertops and sinks and is refillable and easy to use. Fill the pumps with soap, hand sanitizer, or lotion. The bathroom soap pumps also come with a soft foam bottom to cushion and protect countertops.
Be sure to upgrade all of your bathrooms, although you don’t necessarily have to do anything too fancy to make your guests feel at home while they’re staying in your home. We like the simplicity of this Rain Clear Lotion Dispenser, which can clearly be used for more than lotion.
While you’re upgrading your bathroom, you might as well clean up your kitchen sink as well. We really like the iDesign Blumz Soap Dispenser and Sponge Caddy Organizer as it instantly creates compact storage for your kitchen sink. It easily holds 12 oz. of soap, while the caddy stores your sponges, scrubbers, or sink stoppers.
Finally, be sure to add a nice wastebasket to your bathrooms. The Ilese waste can features modern, stylish and practical accents for your bathroom that are sure to match any existing decor as it’s made from durable materials that are built to last long while still showing off elegant style.
Spruce up your guest bathroom and bedroom before the holiday rush with some new bath and bedding products from Cariloha. Cariloha’s sheets, bath items, and blankets are all made with temperature controlling bamboo, making them soft and comfortable no matter the temperature outside. They are also twice as soft as cotton, eco-friendly, and odor-controlling.
This bamboo towel set comes with a large bath towel, a hand towel, and a washcloth – the perfect set for guests coming to visit. The woven bamboo is highly absorbent and soft, too. You might just have to get a set for yourself!
Soft, comfortable, and cool sheets are a perfect way to make your guests feel welcome in your home for the holidays. These Resort Bamboo Bed Sheets will make them feel like your home is a five-star hotel. These bamboo sheets are thermal regulating, super soft, and durable. The extra-softness of the bamboo and sateen finish will make your guests feel like they are floating on a cloud of softness. They fit up to mattresses 18” deep so you might want to get a set for yourself, too.
Add a little bit of vacation mode to your guest room. The Flamingo Bamboo Beach Blanket will make your guests feel like they are on a true vacation even if it’s cold outside, and adds a splash of color to your room. The ultra-soft bamboo is comfortable and cozy, and your guests will love wrapping themselves in the blanket after a long day of hanging with family and friends.
Now you can energetically protect your home and ground the negative energy for good. The Shungite Cube is a stone of life energy which makes it a favorable crystal to have in your home. It’s been said to absorb and neutralize the harmful effects of EMF’s as well as other negative energies (like stress and emotional frustrations) that disrupt the natural energy balance in and around your living space. When you place a Shungite Cube in the four corners of your room, your family can stay grounded and protected 24/7.
When you start to get your home ready to host guests this fall for the holidays, you need a quick and easy way to put things away! Get the kids’ areas organized with Stuff ‘n Sit by Creative QT! Take control of your kids’ stuffed animal collections by wrapping up dozens of them in one comfy “bean bag chair” that instantly cleans up a room.

For the Living Room
There is no better time than the season of change to update your home furnishings, rugs, and decor! Out with the old and in with the new will give your home a fresh new look this fall, just in time for the fast-approaching holiday season. Whether you are preparing for a cozy winter indoors or prepping for all the visitors this season will bring, a few small changes may just make you feel like you’re living in an all-new room. Bring out the best in your living spaces this fall, no matter their size, with a new area rug or a few new accents furnishings from Safavieh.
Living areas can start to look drab and dingy year after year with the same furnishings and decor, which may have even gone out of style, making your rooms look dated and uninviting. However, it is simple to update and refresh a room with just a few small changes that won’t break the bank. A simple tip for modernizing your current looks is to leave the large furniture and simply update accessories giving the space a whole new aura. Here to help is Safavieh, your one-stop shop for home furnishings and accents this fall.
Inspired by the muted shades of fall and winter, we love the Abstract Collection area rug in shades of ivory and charcoal. The contemporary design brings a bit of subtle character to our otherwise plain living space while also creating a cozy and warm space on the wood and tile floors. Hand-tufted with a sturdy cotton backing, this high-quality area rug will not only update any space for this season but last for many years to come. This beautiful, plush rug is perfect for curling your toes into on those cold winter days or keeping kids’ bottoms warm while playing board games on the floor. With matching runners and more, you can easily update your entire open living space in the same or similar prints and patterns with Safavieh.
You can’t get through the fall season without throw blankets in your home. Having throw blankets in various spots around your house not only adds to your fall decor but gives you some warmth and coziness during the cooler months. The Black Hills Blanket is a soft, 100% cotton throw that gives your space a fall feel with its Southwest design.
This throw from Slow Tide will look great in any room. The Black Hills Blanket will compliment a bedroom as an added piece to your bedding or draped across the couch in your living room. This blanket is reversible, giving you two color options and also has a fun, fringe border.
Creating a home that is warm and inviting is a must for decor. Lighting that is both functional and ornate is exactly what a home needs. How your home is decorated tells so much about you as a person. Lighting does so much more than just allowing us to see in the dark. It sets the mood of the room and the tone you are trying to convey to your guests. Brightech offers a wide array of lighting to help convey your personality to your guests.
The Jacob LED Floor Lamp is both elegant and bright. It serves as a functional light source with up to 2,400 lumens of light from three included LED bulbs.
Lighting serves so many purposes. One is to make a home for more spacious but not barren. Pieces like the “Z” Wood Tripod Led Floor Lamp pair with a wide variety of decor, adding accent and taste to any room. It provides soft lighting that is perfect for accenting a room. The beautiful Z design on the tripod adds beauty and a break from the norm in traditional design. The wood boasts a natural wood finish, and the white shade diffuses the light perfect for a calming effect.
Lighting, like that from Brightech, plays so many roles in your home. It opens up doors and tells a story, perhaps one that is bigger than you even realized. The story of your family and the story of who you are. Go ahead and invite people in this fall, share your story with them.
Turn a new leaf this fall and refresh your office or home decor with ErgoErgo. ErgoErgo has developed an ergonomic chair that promotes postural health, core strength, flexibility, and balance with “active sitting”. Unlike other ergonomic options, like an exercise ball, this chair does not roll away and is constructed to create a cushioned seat. Not to mention, it comes in so many fun colors and different sizes. One day of sitting in an ErgoErgo and you can feel the difference in your posture and how aware you are of your body. By practicing healthy sitting you also improve concentration and focus. ErgoErgo is perfect for the office, a home office, or the playroom.
Rugs might be one of the easiest ways to really change up a room and if you’re looking to update your home office space this fall, check out Nuloom’s collection of braided rugs including this Chindi Braided Rug in ivory.
Our home office needed to be kid-friendly, and perhaps you can relate. The kids are back in school and they now need a dedicated space to focus on their homework after school. While you want that space to be free of distraction, it doesn’t mean that it should be void of color. These braided rugs have all the color you could want in a child-like pattern your kids will love.
Available in ivory, blue and multi – as well as a variety of sizes, you’re sure to find just the right color and size for your room this season.
If you’re anything like us, you’re horrible at printing photos large enough to hang on the walls; and even when you do print them, it takes months to hang them on the wall. Mixtiles will hopefully speed up that process as they easily turn your photos into stylish squares that mount directly to your wall with a sticky mounting strip that sticks to your wall like magnets to your fridge, and can be repositioned as often as you’d like leaving no damage behind. It’s like a real-life version of your Instagram feed and at only $11 per image (with free shipping always), printing your life with Mixtiles is a no-brainer this fall.
Mixtiles are available in a variety of styles: Bold, Classic, Clean, Ever and Edge. Bold is a black frame with no mat. Classic is a black frame with a mat. Clean is a white frame with no mat. Ever is a white frame with a mat. Edge is similar to a canvas painting. We chose Edge to match the other canvas prints in our home, but each style prints beautifully. Speaking of which, the print quality of these 8×8 squares is amazing. The colors in your photos will come alive and bring you right back to the moment you took the images. We’re so pleased that we’re already thinking about what other images we want to print.
Mount them all together or add to other areas of your home that need a little something extra (such as the baby body part frames where we decided to add images of the newborns that went along with those parts); whatever you decide to do with your Mixtiles, we can guarantee you’ll want more.
Cooler temperatures require cozy blankets, and PediPocket is the perfect blanket for cuddling up on the couch, catching up on some zzz’s and keeping you warm from head to toe. PediPocket is 6 ft. in length and is made of plush,velvety fleece…and even has a spacious pocket for your feet so you can snuggle up while covering your toes! It is substantial enough to keep you warm on even the most wintry of days, yet delicate enough for breezy summer nights.
For the Dining Room
A wise woman once told us that if you want to take care of your furniture, you better protect it- especially if you have kids. Granted, this person also covered her sofa in plastic, but the intent behind the message was solid. Kids are the reason most of us can’t have anything “nice,” but that doesn’t mean we should completely throw out the concept of having a nice meal at the dining room table.
Ardea Home makes it easier to enjoy the holidays around the dinner table. They fully recognize that kids are gross; that kids touch (and sometimes lick!) everything, including the table. As such, go ahead and put an Ardea Home tablecloth in this Geo print on your table this year. Easy to clean, and free of any lead, Bisphenol-A (BPA), PVC and phthalates, you can safely get hands-on without messing up that expensive table while you eat, create, drink and spill. Simply wipe off any type of mess or spills.

A modern twist on a classic design, the Geo Tablecloth features bold geometric shapes, inspired by the motifs found in traditional Mexican Talavera tiles, and is perfect for everyday stylish living. The clean lines and neutral color go with any kitchen or dining room decor. Dress it up for the holidays or use it as your everyday tablecloth. It’s waterproof, stain-proof, and kid-proof.
Before you know it, it’ll be time to set the table for a holiday feast. Do you have everything you need to be the ideal host? We found that we really lacked child-friendly glassware, but Juliska had exactly what we were looking for.
From their Al Fresco Collection, the Isabella Acrylic Tumbler is versatile enough to accommodate any kind of beverage – from a double old fashioned to ice water to sweet tea. In Juliska’s iconic bohemian Isabella motif, their acrylic glassware was designed with the adventurous entertainer in mind; and unlike actual glass, if your child or Uncle Bob happens to knock one of these glasses off the counter, you don’t have to worry about it breaking.
Fall Home Décor & Fall Decorations
From fall embellishments you will want in every room, to monogrammed gifts you can buy for yourself, or for a friend/host/birthday/wedding shower gift, to throws that will keep you cozy all year round, Mud Pie’s Fall Collection is finally here and has something for everyone. Decorate your house and make it a home with everything Mud Pie.
First and foremost, you’re going to want these Nested Chicken Wire Pumpkins! This set of two chicken wire pumpkins features coiled wire leaves and wrapped twine stems. We think they look great by the fireplace, on the dining room table, or just about anywhere else in your home. They perfectly complement any home decor.
We also love the Preserved Boxwood Wreath. Yes, it looks great during the fall, but we honestly feel like it could be displayed year-round (if being used outdoors, you may want to bring it inside during the most humid months). Dress it up with a fancy bow during the holidays or keep it simple. It looks great either way.
Happy Fall Y’all! With cooler temperatures finally within reach, it’s time to dust off your fall decorations and enjoy the season. JCPenney has a countless collection of decor staples to add to your home this year.
Start with this hand-painted Glitzhome Metal Rusty Pumpkin Yard Art. With a simple message “Happy Fall,” you can proudly display this pumpkin in your yard right up until you’re ready to bring out the Christmas lights. Use the stakes to set it into the ground, hang it with the attached twine or the post mount to display indoors.

Another must-have this fall is this Barley and Wheat Wreath. We love it because it has a wonderful fall vibe that can be hung all season long. The description claims it’s for indoor use, but we’ve had zero issues with it being outside as long as it’s protected from the elements.
Ten Thousand Villages is an excellent choice when choosing your fall decor this year. Not only will it make your home look amazing, but it will make your heart feel good, too! These ethically-sourced gifts and goods are crafted by hand by thousands of villagers all over the globe.

Oh, my gourd! Autumn is finally here, which means it’s time for pumpkin spice everything, including pumpkin spice candles and bath bombs, and everything in between!

Inside of each candle, you’ll find 1 of 10 dazzling gold toned rings. Each ring comes with a pumpkin-colored CZ center stone and decorated with chocolate CZ stones.
Early fall is the calm before the storm, it is the time when you can shop, prepare, and take your time getting ready for the influx of guests and relatives during the busy holiday season. Take this opportunity to update, accentuate, and decorate the areas of your home that need it, or simply those spaces where you know people will gather (i.e. the kitchen). Fall is all about fun, food, and family, so make it beautiful and enjoy your comfy, cozy home while you welcome in all the love and good tidings the season brings.
