When I redecorated the living room in our home, we went from “sixties church lobby” to “cozy and chic”.  Seriously, I know it was church-lobby, because when I sold our sofa in a garage sale, guess who bought it?  Yup, a church.  For their lobby.  Ew.  I’m embarrassed.  Okay, moving on…

I scoured blogs before settling on a decorating plan.  Blogs are the best place to find ideas, of course!  Have you ever read Nesting Place?  I had met “the nester” at a conference and she was so kind.  Since then, I’ve loved her blog as a source of inspiration.  Speaking of inspiration, on HGTV, I noticed that the designers would often find an “inspiration piece” and then work everything around the colors and textures of that piece.  But I didn’t have an inspiration piece!  And I like different colors and textures depending on the season.

Living in the Midwest, we have seasons.  Not just, seasons, actually, it’s more like S-E-A-S-O-N-S.   We go from very hot, very lush greens to frigid icy, whites and blues.  Being near the beach, I’ve always loved coastal decorating with whitewash woods and watery blues.  But it looks silly in January in Chicago.  Sand and sun are the last things on your mind when there’s a blizzard outside.  Christmas here is a White Christmas most of the time – it just doesn’t go with coastal style.  But the same is true with the dark browns and rich ambers of fall.  They don’t go with the spring green of Chicago.  What to do?

Well, thanks to The Nester’s advice, I decorated my living room like this…  The permanent, costly pieces are in black and white.  The furniture is white, the curtains are white, the sofa is black, the chairs are black & white.  They provide a neutral background for my seasonal accessorizing.  The pillows, the coffee table chachkeys, the art  – the easily changeable, less expensive things are in a seasonal color palette.  For example, I have a photograph of a beach walk for the summer.  It’s blues and grays and very seasonal.  It feels good in the summer, paired with my blue tray and painted glassware in bright summer colors.

But at this time of year in the fall, I swap it all out for a black/brown/gray mirror piece, brown and black pottery, a simple brown bowl of apples.  Nothing says fall like crisp, red apples.  Put them in a bowl on the table and add a cozy Simply Vanilla scented Renuzit air freshener.  Mmmmm, can’t you feel the cozy?  And talk about budget friendly?!  The apples are less than a dollar a piece and so is the Renuzit Adjustable Air Freshener!  Use a bowl you have in the house and voila!  Seasonal decorating.  You have just been put in the fall mood.

Fall Pillows and Vanilla #choosethemall #renuzit #shop

I swapped out my brightly colored pillows (on my neutral sofa) for some fall-colored brown and green ones.  Add a Renuzit Simply Vanilla and you have created not only a visual invitation to sit down and relax, you’ve also created a feeling of comfort warm scent of vanilla.

October is coming and you know what that means.  Pumpkins!  And… pumpkin lattes!  Pumpkin Latte is one of the Renuzit Special Edition scents this year.  I bought the air freshener at Walmart and it inspired me to pick up a pumpkin roll, yummmmmm.  When I got home, I made a latte. *sigh* It was wonderful to sit with my lovely snack and enjoy the pleasant scent of pumpkin lattes.  Yum!  How about putting a Pumpkin Latte Renuzit Cone in your kitchen to create a fall retreat?

Here in the Midwest, fresh peaches are delicious in the fall.  The new Renuzit Cone comes in a Purely Peach scent that creates a warm, cozy feeling in my kitchen.  Mmmm, can’t you just smell the peach pie in the oven?

Have you noticed the new shape of the Renuzit air freshener?  I love the teardrop shape of Renuzit Adjustable Air Freshener!  It reminds me of a rosebud, just opening.  In addition to the white cones, they new Renuzit also is available in a premium black.  I put the After the Rain scent in my powder room to add a fresh scent for my guests.

    Gardenia is my absolute favorite scent. I think it is a great idea to have a different scent for each room. Its almost like entering a different world each time you visit the the individual rooms. A little vacation maybe.
