Guest Picks: A Fall-Inspired Living Room
Rooms inspired by fall need not be so cliché. You don't always need pumpkin, apple and scarecrow decor. Instead, opt for a mix of textures and layers with bits of rustic wood and metallic gold sprinkled throughout. The result is a cozy space that you may just want to stay in all year-round. — Dana from House Tweaking
