I’m teaming up with Wayfair to bring you The Fall Edit, a collection of advice, inspiration, and trends for the upcoming season, starting with a Q & A between Wayfair and I:

Fall Decorating and Renovation Q & A with Iced Tea & Top Knots 

Wayfair: Which fall home decor projects do you get most excited about? 

Iced Tea & Top Knots: I get most excited about changing up all my pillows, blankets and flowers throughout my home for Fall.

Wayfair: Are there any design trends you are loving right now?

Iced Tea & Top Knots: I am really loving all of these and hope to implement a few where I can this Fall.

  • Canopy Beds
  • Non-white Kitchens
  • Floral Wallpaper
  • Vintage Accents
  • High Contrast
  • Velvet

Wayfair: What are a few ways people can spruce up their homes with fall decor while on a budget?

Iced Tea & Top Knots: Changing up your decor by season is definitely overwhelming sometimes because of the cost. I have found the picking up a couple new pillows, a new blanket and a new vase definitely help change up your room for the fall season while staying on a budget.

For those working on home renovations this fall, you know how important it is to find the right appliances to go with your design scheme. 

Iced Tea & Top Knots: Advice on Selecting Appliances:

My biggest pieces of advice for choosing appliances is do your research, measure the space you want the appliance to go in and factor in the theme of that specific room.

Wayfair is having a special appliance event from October 5-21. Scout out dream kitchen and laundry room updates including ranges, range hoods, refrigerators, beverage refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, and more.

How A New Space Has Created Such Calm In My Life

My Inspiration for My New Spaces

“Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges.” ~Bryant McGill from the @calm app 

As you all know, I just redid my bedroom and office for 2020, thanks to Wayfair! This was such a great experience and so needed not just for the physical spaces, but for my mental health. 

I am someone who struggles with anxiety, it was the main reason for wanting less clutter and be more at peace. Anxiety is something you may not always notice that someone is going through because it can be very internal especially for me. I have learned what creates less anxious days, it starts with my space being calming and less stuff. 

Setting up my sanctuary and creative office has helped create such calm for me in life and it feels amazing. I am more hopeful now more than ever going forward in life. It feels amazing to have my own mediation corner, my nightstand with my sage and palo Santo, a bed that gives me calming sleep and an office that opens up my creative juices. 

I am excited to keep creating that calm and peace everywhere in my life and to help whoever I can create calm and peace in their lives 

Here is to creating the space we each need!

New Year, New Me, New Space with Wayfair

“Creating a sanctuary in my bedroom as well as redoing my office space to feel more calming for 2020. Take down clutter.” ~Iced Tea & Top Knots

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

~Maya Angelou 

Change can be scary, but with a new year, change can feel amazing. At the end of last year, I knew that I wanted to change the space I was living in mainly my room and my office space. 

What made me want to make the change was that my space was feeling cluttered and I was not liking that. So 2020, rolled around and my resolution was clear, New Me meant New Space. 

Wayfair was the perfect company to help make my space feel like the new again. They helped me create the sanctuary I wanted for my bedroom and the creative space I needed in my office. I took down the clutter and created the calm and creative I needed. 

Please check out the before and afters for both spaces thanks to Wayfair and stay tuned for another piece on creating a new space next week 🙂

Home Improvement Starts With The Details

When it comes to home improvements, I have always thought that to really make a change and splash I would have to go big, knock down some walls and repaint every space, but that is not the case. When I was exploring Wayfair and all its amazing things, I realized making a splash with home improvements is all in the details.

Here are some of my favorite details that I look forward to adding to my different spaces! Hope it inspires you and remember we can all make a splash in our own space.

1. Ridgecrest Mountain Oakley Single Dummy Doorknob with Square Rosette // More Door Knobs 2. Georgian Hall and Closet Knob with Brookshire Trim // More Door Hardware & Accessories 3. Bamboo Varying Length Solid Flooring // More Hardwood Flooring 4. Walnut Laminate Flooring // More Laminate Flooring

1. Almonte Vintage Boho Pink/Saffron Area Rug // More Area Rugs 2. LaCrosse Room Darkening Grommet Single Curtain Panel // More Curtains & Drapes 3. Waldwick 4-Light Lantern Geometric Pendant // More Chandeliers 4. Van Nest 3-Light Kitchen Island Linear Pendant // More Pendant Lighting
