As life transitions from summer heat to autumn chill, make sure that your lifestyle doesn’t follow suit. While the bikinis do need to be packed away, your summer attitude doesn’t have to go anywhere. Cold months means more time spent indoors — so why not make your living space as beautiful and inspiring as it could possibly be?
