Switching Up Your Art and Decor for Fall

Switching Up Your Art and Decor for Fall

Fall is a transitional time, so when kids go back to school, I start thinking about ways to make our home extra cozy and special. After all, once the temperature gets cooler, we'll be spending more time indoors. Changing the accent decor, swapping out my prints in frames, and investing in new art pieces is a way I like to transition my home with the season. I used to shop at big box stores for this kind of thing, but after becoming an artist myself, I now look for items from other artists and makers.  Artisans appreciate the business, and you get something truly special and not mass produced. 

Places to look for crafted items and art locally are art fairs, art pop-ups, galleries, book stores and coffee shops that feature local artists. Places to look online: Etsy.com, Artfinder.com, Saatchi Art, or simply direct message an artist/maker you follow on social media and ask them for a price list. I promise, it isn't weird to reach out this way. We love it! I already have a long list of artists in mind I want to collect, so I just wait until the right piece comes along in their Instagram posts and hope that it's within my budget.

For many, fall is their favorite season. I really like it too. It's definitely one of my top four seasons. What about you?  Let me know in the comments if you have a special fall tradition.
