This year, have fun with your Christmas decorations by quietly mixing old pieces in with new. People always ask me “Is your Christmas decor more traditional or more modern?” To that, I say “Both!” Incorporating classics like the Magical Christmas Beverage Server and more modern pieces like the Woodland Reindeer (both shown below) gives your home a cozy feel with a new edge and room to grow every year.
To make it easy, these new collections from Tag offer both classic and contemporary pieces, an easy way to set up your holiday decor scheme with little effort.

The unofficial holiday season, although at the end of the year, always seems to inspire all things new and fresh. It’s the time of year when you find yourself saying “Oh, I’d better get on that!” over and over again. And we all know that there’s nothing quite like spending some time to gather new ideas, recipes and inspirations. Pinterest is a great holding tank for all of the things that you want to try. If you are in the mood for fall like we are, check out our Stacks pinterest boards, all of which we have organized and reshuffled, bringing the most seasonally relevant boards to the top: Fall Colors, Fall Decorating, Getting Cozy for Fall and Fall Cooking. It’s a great place to start when forming your own boards as we have already collected some of the season’s best offerings for you!

Winter is a great time to revamp your bedroom. Traditionally in the winter you want to go with darker colors and heavier fabrics as opposed to the lighter designs you would use in the summer. Pick out your favorite color or pick a favorite painting and plan your entire room from there. You may want to paint, but you can get by without painting if your room has a neutral color base. As you plan out your room, it helps to have an overall design in mind or at least a basic color you want to go with. Some people will go with traditional deep reds or greens, but a dark purple or grey can also make great colors for your bedroom in the winter.

An easy way to give any room a new look is by switching up the lighting scheme. Lamps are well known in the designing world for their ability to breathe new life into a space, so demand for different looks in lighting has been on the rise for some time. Thankfully, lighting designers are stepping up to the challenge with multiple releases every year of the newest and best in lighting.
Here are our favorite picks that don’t break the budget this fall:
Elegant with a hint of retro style, the Simple Designs Glass Diamond Shaped Table Lamp is available in six different colors ranging from White to Aqua, allowing you to choose between a pop of color and a simple splash of style. Read more

With football season officially underway and youth soccer in full swing, my house has that feeling of a sports bar mixed with a locker room (somewhat exciting and at the same time unfortunate). In other words, we’ve got sports coming out of our ears! If you’re not particularly interested in football (or baseball, or hockey, or basketball…) like me, that is all the more reason to create a sanctuary for your sports-loving family members. Call it a man-cave if you want, but I prefer to think of it as the “sports zone” of the house. Here are some fun ways to decorate and even include a bar with no plumbing required.
Nothin’ says sports bar like a Football Helmet Neon Sculpture! This fun, bright decor piece is available in favorite team colors. Read more
