Refresh for Fall

With summer coming to a close, we’d normally be hanging on to every last sun-filled day, concert in the park, and barbecue with friends… but this summer unfolded quite differently than we had planned. While not ideal, we are definitely ready for a change of season. As we look ahead, we know that we will be spending plenty of time in the comforts of home, hosting intimate gatherings with family and friends, and enjoying the beauty of fall in Colorado.

With this in mind, our thoughts immediately turn to creating a sanctuary at home.  Reinvigorated by all of our gorgeous new arrivals (and 6 months stuck at home, staring at the same old décor) has us ready to start anew! Our fall décor sale is the perfect time to refresh your home for the season and get set for the upcoming holidays with 15% off rugs, lighting, art & mirrors, bedding, pillows & throws, florals, dinnerware, barware, flatware, and table linens, September 10th – 14th.

4 WAYS TO REFRESH FOR FALL

  1. Thoughtful Layers

Let’s face it, we’re spending a LOT of time at home. With the weather growing colder, we can’t think of a better reason to create a warm and inviting space to curl up with the family. Discover easy updates with our textural, hand-woven rugs, the perfect pairing of pillows or a cozy throw to revamp your room. From bold, graphic designs to nubby neutrals, our latest arrivals in handcrafted textiles are just what the doctor ordered.

  1. Relaxed Yet Refined Bedding

These days, personal space is at a premium so your bedroom should be the ultimate escape.  We’ve introduced two new bedding collections for fall that are simple yet sophisticated, easy to layer, and always inviting. Not ready for a whole new bed but in need of a refresh? Try swapping out your shams. It’s an easy way to experiment with a new look, low-commitment, and gets you that updated look you’re seeking.

  1. Simple Updates with Easy Additions

Looking for an easy update but don’t know where to start? Not ready to commit to new colors or patterns? Sometimes the simple addition of a new lamp, a stylish drink table, or a piece of art can do just the trick without opening Pandora’s proverbial box of re-decorating. Good lighting can transform your space, the right piece of occasional furniture brings style and functionality, or the pop of statement-making art can be all you need to give things a little boost.

  1. Elevate Your Spread

We know we’ll be dining-in more, hosting small gatherings with friends, and gearing up for holidays at home. There’s no better time to get a jump start on your entertaining arsenal than at our Fall Décor Event. From handcrafted, artisan dinnerware to mix-and-match pieces that bring a bit of fun to your table while dining-out is well…. out. Plus, our gourmet department has been stocked with entertaining essentials, charcuterie boards, seasonal preserves, and gourmet nibbles to help you turn-out an Ina-worthy spread in minutes.

We hope you’ll join us for our Fall Décor Event to shop all of our latest arrivals, refresh your home for the fall, and get set for the holiday season. Shop September 10th – 14th and save 15% on rugs, lighting, art & mirrors, bedding, pillows & throws, florals, dinnerware, barware, flatware, and table linens. Visit us in-store or shop online and use code FALL15 at checkout.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

This year, Mother’s Day is looking different than ever before. We find ourselves in challenging times but everywhere we look, we are all in this together, trying to support one another, and to navigate these uncertain times with as much grace as we can muster. At the helm is mom, working from home, juggling homeschooling, cooking 3-meals a day… and then some. As we continue to look forward to a future on the other side of all of this, we are focusing on the positive; there are still special occasions to celebrate, gratitude to be given, and love to share.

We put our heads together (virtually, of course) and came up with a collection of thoughtful and easy-to-give gifts from a distance to remind mom, grandma, or even your gal-pal, that you’re thinking of her, sending love, and looking to brighten her day.

Flower Power

Who doesn’t love receiving a gorgeous arrangement of spring blooms? It might be a bit more challenging to find a florist right now or you may have concerns about sanitizing delicate, fresh flowers. Enter our gorgeous selection of remarkably real faux-botanicals. We’ve designed a collection of cheerful spring arrangements that are easier to maintain than their fresh friends and can withstand a little wipe-down. My personal favorite is our Vietri Hibiscus vase filled with a bouquet of dahlias, poppies, and ranunculus. Best of all, the vase is a beautiful keepsake that can be refreshed with fresh or faux blooms season after season.

A Little “Me Time”

No one could use a little pampering more than mom right now and our collection of personal care gifts is just what the doctor ordered. Gift her a trio of bath salts, body wash and lotion, throw in a glass of chardonnay and an hour of silent bliss and she’ll emerge rested and relaxed. Or send Niven Morgan’s signature collection of nourishing wash and hydrating lotion with our chic, white marble soap dish. It’s a perfect pick-me-up for the powder room or master bath.

Fragrance Factor

We all need a little calm and serenity in our homes — a bedroom, a book-nook, or a bathroom to light a candle and Zen-out for a bit. We’ve stocked up on spring scents in beautiful vessels to help mom find a little inner peace. Fresh from LAFCO, Duchess Peony and Blush Rose, both hand-poured into beautiful blown glass jars (which, by the way, are perfect for re-use when your candle has burned down.) Or, new to the website, an array of Japanese-inspired jar candles, reed diffusers, and home or body mist from Voluspa.

Keepsakes

Looking to take gifting to the next level? These handcrafted gifts from artisans around the world will make mom smile for years to come. We can’t think of a nicer way to say, thanks, than our Match pewter “Grazie” keepsake box from Italy. For something rustic yet refined, our hand-forged Rosa votive holder from Jan Barboglio is always in bloom. Or, a classic for all the right reasons, a beautiful, handmade frame with a photo of you… because she definitely wants to see your face right now!

We continue to offer free shipping and local delivery so you can shop from the safety of your home. We’re happy to deliver a beautifully wrapped gift within a 15-mile radius on minimum purchases of $100. If there’s something you’d like that’s not online or just need a little help finding the perfect gift, email us at CustomerService@HomefestDecor for complimentary personal shopping services.

Bold & Bountiful: Fall Centerpieces

That fall feeling in finally here, the weather is starting to cool, the leaves are changing, and I for one, am excited to pull out my boots and scarves!  In addition to embracing a new fall wardrobe, I couldn’t be more ready to usher rich autumn colors into my home with cozy throws and pillows, abundant fall florals, and a few home accent pieces that exude the richness and warmth of the season.

If you’ve been following Homefest for a while, you know that one of our favorite design solutions is our collection of “instant centerpieces”… particularly this time of year, when we go from tailgating and pumpkin-clad porches to Thanksgiving feasts to Christmas in a matter of weeks.  Our instant centerpieces are an easy way to update your mantle or table-scape for every holiday and season with a few simple elements.

This year’s selection, if I do say so myself, is one of our best!  With a beautiful centerpiece tray, ranging from shiny metallics to a rustic wood trug, as your base, we’ve curated a collection of hurricanes and votives, seasonal botanical elements, and accent pieces in rich fall colors to create a beautiful fall centerpiece.

The best part is, you can buy the entire centerpiece kit online (with or without the tray, for those of you that already own one).  It’s as easy as that… and it can be easily updated for Christmas or New Years by swapping out a few elements.  So make sure to check back for our holiday centerpieces in the next couple of months!
