Fall-Inspired Decor to Add to Your Home

There is so much to love about the fall season, and now that Halloween and Thanksgiving are around the corner, there is even more reason to come up with ways to welcome fall into your home. For the most part, pumpkins are a sure way to excite you and your guests about the upcoming spooky holiday of Halloween. Who doesn’t love Halloween? Many kids and adults spend weeks, even months, deciding on their costumes and perfect haunted house party. For the adults, there are ways to take advantage of this fun holiday by inviting guests over for a dinner party, and incorporating your seasonal accessories, accents, and decor into your home. Read through our list of easy ways to give your home the fall makeover it deserves.

The How-to-Guide to spruce up your home with lovely fall-inspired decor:

Pumpkin Display

Everyone loves seeing pumpkins in fall
The key to a fall makeover is in the presentation

A little jar with mini pumpkins is adorable and festive. Who doesn’t love a little color of orange and green in their living room when fall hits? Now that the leaves are starting to change color, it’s important to keep your home up to date with the changing season. Adding mini pumpkins will keep your energy up and serve as a reminder of things to look forward to, i.e. Halloween and Thanksgiving! It will also give your guests a warm welcoming as they step into your home and see these festive touches. Everyone notices small things like this!

Fresh Smelling Plants

A beautiful bedroom window with a blooming plant and candle creates happiness in the most unexpected ways.

Spring may be special in all its color and glory, but fall is just as wonderful for growing plants at home. Buy a basil plant and keep it in your window sill where the sun shines, and remember to feed it daily. Soon, you will find it flourishing to be taller and stronger than you could imagine. Plus, the great thing about Basil plants is they smell wonderful, and you can always cut a little off to add to your pastas or salads. Decorate your window sill with plants, great reads, picture frames, and some of our high-end embroidered tissue box covers and curtains seen in the above photo.

Neutral or Beige Colored Bed Sheets

Bring out the high-end bed sheets with little touches of beige to highlight the fall theme

Our Jacaranda Living embroidered bed sheets with a Scroll embroidery are wonderful for a master or guest room, especially in the fall season. Put aside your brightly colored bed linens you had from spring and bring out some fresh beige and neutrals. It’s the perfect touch that will complement your new pumpkins, flourishing plant, and candle decorations you’ve placed around your home. Match your curtains to the scroll embroidered guest towels – either in your shower or around the main windows of your bedroom.

Cushions on the Sofa

Add some whimsy cushions to your sofa

Who says animals can’t live on couches? Our Whimsical wildlife designs in amusing settings are just what any home needs during the colder months. These pillows of animals lounging comfortably will certainly put smiles on your and your company’s faces. Choose from our selection of designs that best complement the colors in your living room.

Layer the cushions on your sofa or chair for an elegant look that requires minimal effort

 

Table Setting

Jacaranda Living Takes on NYC: NY Now’s Trade Show at the Javits Center

This week we had a successful trade show at the Javit's Center in NYC! There were a lot of new and old faces who came into our booth, and we are so pleased with the feedback we received about our newer styles. Thank you to everyone who came out to support and shop our collections. Here is a little recap of what we showcased at the show and to give you a peep of our newer styles that you might have missed!

Embroidered Guest Towels

Our embroidered guest towels have always been a customer favorite since we started. Boutiques in both resort areas and cities do really well with our wide assortment of designs on Waffle Weave, Terry Cloth and Linen. They make a perfect hostess gift and powder room pick-me-up! We recently added some new styles to the collection, which customers have been raving about. We really appreciate your opinions as well as your suggestions for inspiration! The new Sand Pipers were a big hit this time around. We showed them in blue and white, and will be doing them in shades of sand following quite a few requests at the show.

We work closely with our team in South Africa who stitch the designs and make each item with meticulous attention to detail. If you have new ideas for a design you'd like to see, we'd love to hear them.

Children's Pillows

Our embroidered designs on children's pillows have been growing rapidly! We’re excited to showcase even more playful imagery of kids playing to bring smiles to your little one’s faces. Discover the ones we showed at the show below and let us know your favorite!

Wildlife at Leisure Collection

As you know, we tie most of our designs to our African roots – the very reason we started Jacaranda Living! We recently wrote a blog post on our Whimsical Collection and what makes it so special. It just launched and has already been getting a lot of positive feedback. The cosmetic bags did really well, especially the ones of beautiful animals in the wild or whimsically resting on a couch.

African Cosmetic Bags

These cosmetic bags are unique and the ultimate must-have to hold your smaller items such as pens, lipsticks and toothbrushes. Pick your favorite design from our collection here.

Cosmetic Bag and Matching Slippers

To round out the last bit from the show, here's a shot of our favorite new Bucket of Lavender design, which adds a little French accent to the collection. Hold onto those summer memories of yours in our Bucket of Lavender! You can shop it on tissue box covers, slippers, cosmetic bags, and guest towels.

Unveiling of the Whimsical Collection at the AmericasMart

The Whimsical Collection is a new line the Jacaranda Living team will be unveiling this week in Atlanta, Georgia at the AmericasMart! The team is most excited about their new Whimsical collection, which consists of the Wildlife at Leisure tote bags, beach bags, pillows and more. The Whimsical line has been a big hit for the team as it has in the past consisted of various pieces that are conversation starters – from Julia Baille’s funny guest towels of men and women playing golf or sunbathing to sleepy elephants on pillows next to airplanes. It is a different collection, unique to the brand’s more elevated aesthetic that consists of elegant white linens and it is very exciting to see the company being brought back to its African roots.
