Daylight Savings

You've probably noticed that daylight is slowly dwindling away as we head toward the winter equinox. Also, most of us "lost" another hour due to Daylight Savings Time when we turned the clocks back. Sure, it's darker and the air is getting crisp, but we have a few ways to embrace autumn and turn a little darkness into light.

Embracing Autumn's Colors for Your Decor

We love the deep rich hues found in nature during the autumn season. When there's less daylight we want to gravitate toward getting warm and cozy and feeling grounded. With that, interior designers also recommend shifting your decor to match the seasonal mood. That could be a rug in a deeper rust tone, some throws in reds and browns or a couple pillows in darker hues to create a warm and romantic vibe.

Make the Most of Sleep

You probably feel cheated by losing that hour of sleep...We do! You can offset that by improving your sleep habits. Sleep studies show that you can optimize rest by putting clean linens on your bed (so go wash your bedding right now or treat yourself to some new sheets). Experts say new bedding that you love increases your willingness to get into bed. Let us know if that works for you!

Some Comfort Food to Warm the Soul

Now that fall is here and the temperatures are going down, you might want to warm up with hot foods like chili or butternut squash soup. Here's one of our favorite chili recipes from our friend Nora Taylor from @nora_cooks_vegan_.

Light up the Night

It’s candle season and our new candle collection has arrived. As the days get shorter, our candles provide warm light as they scent the air, creating a romantic and relaxing vibe. As the holidays are upon us, they also make great host gifts!
