Work It

Work It

Whether you work it in your home office or work it in your kitchen, I’m loving these organized baskets, bins and bookshelves!  The natural rattan and woven baskets, greenery and throws warm up the utilitarian features while still keeping everything in its spot.  Fall is a busy season with kids going back to school and all of the travel and activities, so here’s some inspiration to help you work it, better!

To Cut or Not to Cut: How to Make a Hairstyle Choice This Autumn

To Cut or Not to Cut: How to Make a Hairstyle Choice This Autumn

Every person comes across the idea of cutting their hair at some point — and in autumn, when you want something to brighten your days, it can happen quite frequently. However, how to make the right choice from so many available options? If you struggle with such issues, you come to the right place.

Below, we’ll tell you about some amazing hairstyling trends this autumn that will work both for light and radical changes — from bobs and waves to bangs, mullets, and pixies. Read on and remember that a haircut is a just form of expressing yourself. If you want to do something about it, don’t hesitate too much.

Finding the Right Cut for Long Hair

Is it really possible to have a good-looking haircut during autumn if you have long hair? Well, the answer is yes. It is quite simple — you just have to pick the right cut. For instance, a layered bob would look amazing with longer hair as it would be easy to style and care for.

If you decide to get this hairstyle, you won’t need to spend hours washing and drying your hair every day. Besides, it will be perfect for those who don’t want to spend a lot of time styling their hair every morning. And you can always make a drastic change next year if you’re going to miss your locks.

All you need to do is pick up a pair of hairdressing scissors from a reputable site like Scissor Tech and watch some tutorials on how to cut your own hair or visit your hairstylist. Either way, picking up the right hairstyle is essential if you want to make the most out of your hair this autumn.

Alternatives to Complicated Hairstyles

The weather doesn’t always allow for complicated hairstyles to work. So, if you feel like making something different this fall, try to go for something simple. For example, asymmetrical bob with wavy locks could work perfectly — it allows you to go for different styles depending on how you wear it. You can leave it straight or curl it depending on your preferences. And it looks great for all occasions.

Here are some other hairstyles that you might want to try out:

Platinum Pixie

A cool thing about having short hair is that you can easily go for platinum blonde, making any pixie look truly unique. If you want to show off your pixie this fall, consider dyeing it blonde or using highlights. You can also go for dark tints.

And if blonde isn’t what you like, you can always go for some natural color like caramel or soft brown. These shades look good on all hair types — even if you have coarse hair. They give your hair a subtle hint of color which looks good in any light and adds depth to your haircut.

Pixie With Bangs

One of the things that you can do with your pixie this fall is to go for bangs. The great thing about them is that they are so versatile. Depending on your preferences, you can have them straight or wavy, thick or thin, long or short. But whatever you decide on, remember that bangs are not for everyone. So, consider them carefully before deciding whether or not to go for them.

Bangs are great for hiding imperfections on your face and adding volume to your hairstyle, especially if you have naturally straight hair. They are also great for hiding part of your forehead if you have one that makes you feel uncomfortable about yourself. And they look amazing with any haircut.

Mullets for Fall

What are mullets? Mullets are classical haircuts that involve cutting hair short at the front and leaving it long at the back. The trend was prevalent in the 80s and 90s among men, but lately, women have embraced mullets as well. This autumn should be no exception! And the best thing about mullets is that they work very well with long hair, so you won’t need to cut it short.

Hairstyles With Bangs

Bangs are always in style — they look great with all hair colors and with any hair length. If you’re thinking about getting bangs this fall, instead of going for a blunt cut, try to experiment by getting them layered. Doing this will allow you to change your hairstyle every day, choosing how you want to wear your bangs depending on your mood. You can also change their length by trimming them at home — so feel free to play with your haircuts!

Curly Waves for Fall

If you have naturally curly hair, you’re in luck! Locks look terrific in autumn. And if you’re planning on cutting your hair this fall, consider getting some waves — they are beautiful and easy to maintain. All you need to do is use some conditioner when combing your hair, and voila, you’re done! After a while, your waves will start looking great as the conditioner helps your hair look shinier and healthier.

Final Thoughts

Autumn is a season that makes us want to experiment and try different things — and haircuts are no exception. If you’re going to get a haircut this season, don’t hesitate too much and go for something new. Who knows — maybe it will change your life.

You can try one of the haircuts we mentioned earlier or go for something more original — it’s up to you. Just remember to do what feels right for you. If you do not succumb to outside influences and trends, you will soon find yourself much more comfortable in your skin than ever before. Good luck!

The Ghostess with the Mostess

The Ghostess with the Mostess

Are we still doing ghost chairs, or are they so 2010??  My cats literally claw and eat wood, so I’m a huge fan of any kind of chair (acrylic ghost chairs, tolix, etc.) that is not wood or fabric.  The ghost and tolix chairs are actually shockingly comfortable, and I still think they’re super stylish, not to mention we’re heading into the spooky season, so why not embrace it?  I’m just loving these clean, crisp dining spaces, so nice for the upcoming winter months when we all gather ’round for hearty healthy meals at home, I’m feeling super inspired hope you are too!

Oooh Horses

Oooh Horses

Is it literally possible to drive by a pasture of horses and not exclaim “Oooohhh horses!”?  I think not!  I personally do the same thing with cows, even though here in Vermont there is no shortage of farm animals, I still get happy when I see them out grazing.  And while I told my husband “Mark my words, if I ever start talking about getting a horse, stop me right there” (the expense, the work, ha ha I think the equestrian life is better left to those who know what they’re doing and have more money and patience than me!).  But that doesn’t mean I don’t love equestrian and barn life details in interior design…  Can’t have horses?  How about a gorgeous mural of horses?!  I’m just loving these found wood accents, vegan cowhide rugs and beautiful barn-inspired details, minus having to muck out a stall!

Wood for Good

Wood for Good

Do I spy a wooden sink?  Little wooden face and eyes? Live edge wooden table and matching rattan dining chairs?  Building a home in Vermont (where not one single tree has been cut down!) has put us on the wood tip!  People here love their wood and natural finishes, and I’ve seen them in a lot of unexpected places, but I don’t think ever a sink!  Anyway, feeling this cozy natural vibe this autumn, how about you?

Need It Like Neon

Need It Like Neon

It’s been such a crazy year, who else is going nuts from staring at the same four walls in their wfh space?  I know a lot of design blogs will tell you to make your home office calm and muted so it’s a clean and relaxing space, but honestly after staring at Zoom squares all day, I feel like the thoughts in my head should be memorialized in neon, ha!  I know I’m not alone on this one! If you too are tired of boring wfh spaces, think neon!  Redfin has some fantastic ideas for decorating with neon, and your truly is quoted as well, so jazz things up and check it out! Neon signs are pretty easy to come by these days, Etsy in particular is a great source, so why not?! These are some of my faves, you can even get customized ones “Get me the hell out of this” comes to mind, lol, but we’re all going a bit nutty so why not memorialize it in neon? After all, why not?!

A Cozy Nest

A Cozy Nest

The cozy nesting season is upon us!  I mean, not if you live in the south obviously ha ha I spent my childhood sweating it out in my cute wooly Fall clothes when it was still in the 80s in October no joke, but now that I’m a New Englandah, well, I’ve already put on my heater and gotten out my fluffy robe!  While these spaces don’t necessarily highlight the traditional Fall colors, you gotta love the gray, and it gives you a great palette for holiday winter whites and sparkles too.  So even if you’re somewhere hot, toss out a fluffy throw, light a candle, the cozy season is upon us!
