Like Living On Vacation Year ‘Round Local Palapa Bar

By Melissa Wynn   When you have a favorite vacation destination that you visit every chance you get it is always fun to have a little piece of that place in your everyday life, a small reminder that keeps you anticipating your inevitable return.    Better yet, join Linda Rouland of Rouland Insurance Agency in Chester in the philosophy, “Stop creating a life that you need a vacation from. Instead, live where you want to live and create the life you want today.

Feather Your Nest with the Colors of Fall

[media-credit name=”Jeanne Brovelli” align=”alignright” width=”300″][/media-credit] Feather Your Nest with the Colors of Fall by Jeanne Brovelli, Interior Re-designer La Casa Bella Fine Furnishings As the nights cool and the gorgeous colors of fall begin to delight our senses, we are naturally inclined to embrace those warm Autumn colors. We do this with our wardrobe and we can also do this in our homes. While we can’t change all of our furnishings with each season, there are some simple things we can do to celebrate the season indoors through décor. Changing out or adding to the pillows on a sofa, adding a different throw, putting out an accent pottery piece or vase, or switching to fall florals are just a few of the things we can do that create a whole new feeling to a room. Putting out fall-toned tablecloths, placemats or runners, changing out towels or throw rugs in the bathroom, strategically placing some fall-colored candles throughout the house and adding some autumn potted flowering plants, like mums, are some other ways to add just the right accent to bring that fall feeling indoors. This season some of the new trends in colors in fashion include a true red, a deepened earthy shade of orange, a warm shade of olive, and a honey yellow. These are a few of the colors we might naturally associate with fall. Combining these with...
