The New Neutrals

It has become quite obvious this season that the neutrals of tans and gray have become all the rage in decorating.  The combination of gray and beige (grage) is all the rage.  I am starting to see are return toward browns and earth tones, but this time it is paired with grays.   For any questions on my design ideas go to or contact me @ mavinhilldesigns@gmail.

Garage Door Makeovers

Don't ignore your garage doors.  They are often the first thing you see in the morning when you leave and the last thing you see at night when you come home.  Also don't be afraid to paint garage doors a color.

Take on Fall

Now is the time to transition your house, both inside and out, to fall.  Buy some great mums at a farm stand and use different variations of them in the same color.  Use ornamental gourds and squashes in urns to dress up your front entrance.  Display a great bowl on your dining room table and fill it with mini gourds or acorns.  There are so many inexpensive things you can do to make your house look
 great in this new season
