As a California girl, summer is my favorite season. But sadly, it’s coming to an end and fall is approaching, which means it’s time to cozy up the house with plush throw blankets, extra candles and warm sheets. And to help, Wandeleur’s new home editor Alyssa rounded up five trendy, easy and accessible ways to infuse a comfy, cozy fall environment into your apartment or home.
I fell head over heels in love with this home the minute I saw the tiniest of peeks on instagram. And I should have known I would. The folks beyond this gorgeous abode are such a dream team. With the interior design gurus at Pencil & Paper Co. dreaming up every detail and Leslee Mitchell behind the lens, it’s should be no surprise these images are going to come with me tonight when I try to convince my hubby that a move to Nashville might be a good call.
Pencil and Paper Co designs homes that we want to live in. We love finding the diamond in the rough…nothing better then bringing an old house back to life. We were inspired by the relaxed vibe of old cedar shake homes in the Hamptons for the exterior. We freshened up the original dark brick by painting it white…love how the white pops with the original cedar shake.
For the interior of the home we love a clean bright white space. We Painted all the walls a crisp warm white ( Delicate white from Porter Paint) with soft gray accents. Repose Gray from Sherwin Williams is our go to perfect gray! We love this palette with warm brass accents. Our favorite Eugene light in the kitchen from Circa paired with School House Electric Lighting through out the home.

However much I love the blooming beauty of spring, and the endless August sun of summer, fall will always have my heart. I mean, who doesn’t want another excuse to wear cashmere?! Another one of my favorite ways to get cozy for fall is by draping pretty much anything and everything indoors with cuddly, fuzzy sheepskin. Anything goes here, so get creative!

Remember when we all fell head over heels with this sweet nursery? It’s definitely worth taking a second peek at, because Jess tucked away darling details in every nook and cranny of her son’s precious bedroom, and this DIY feather art definitely might be one of my favorites. It’s perfect for any room, really, making it fall nicely into the “must craft” category. (See the other DIYs here, here and here).
Dip the feather into the bin so that the dye comes up about 2/3 of the way. Let it soak for several seconds to a minute until you see the lightest color you’d like to see on the feather. Remove the case from the dye and set aside.
Add several more spoonfuls of dye and stir to make your next shade. Dip the feather in, slightly lower than before.
Pour out half the bin of dye, then add in a pinch or two of navy dye and stir thoroughly. Dip the very tip of the feather in, then remove and lay flat to dry 1 hour.
Dot the feather with the 18k gold marker and let dry.
Place glue dots on the back of each feather and press onto the watercolor paper. Place in the frame and hang!
If summer had an official drink, it would be a glass of rosé. Refreshing, crisp and light, it’s the perfect #SipsForSummer. But our friends at the Glitter Guide just did the impossible: they made rosé even more delicious with the scrumptious rosé wine slush cocktail. Summer is sadly coming to a close, but our love for rosé knows no season—trust us, we’ll be sipping on this well into the fall.
Head to the Glitter Guide for the full recipe behind this scrumptious cocktail and if you missed them, try all of our cocktail hour all-stars: the Spicy Paloma from Sugar and Cloth, the Slushy Coconut Lime Margarita from Apartment 34, the Honeydew Ginger Crush from Camille Styles and our own Salted Watermelon Slush!
