Monday Morning Mix

I can't believe it is already the third week in September.  A hint of cooler weather over the weekend was nice, and I am now ready for Fall.  Is it too early for a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks because I really wanted one this morning!  Actually, does anyone know if they are even serving them yet or is September too early?  As you have probably seen, bright colors are huge this season.  I'm loving the greens, blues, purples, and surprisingly, the reds.  My fondness for this season's colors is very evident in this morning's mix.  Your closet shouldn't be the only place where you incorporate these wonderful colors. 

Try painting an old piece a rich color, or switch out your current pillows for some bolder colors to carry you through the season.  These are some good alternatives to painting a room.  Not only would some of these bright colors be too much for your walls, but painting one piece and switching out pillows is much easier!

Loving these colors below!  How great do they look as accent colors?

Try switching out your bedding, which most of us do when the temperature changes anyway.

Completely off topic from this season's bold colors, I had to share this idea for a possible mini project this week or coming weekend. Who doesn't want a chic looking bulletin board like this?  This would be so easy, and is a great way to organize and refresh your current work space at home.  All you need is a simple fabric and good nailheads.  (refer back to my July 8th post for info on nailheads)

Hope you have a great Monday!
