In Minnesota we've got fall in full effect! The leaves started changing about a month ago, we're sitting in the 50-60 degree range most days and....PUMPKINS! Lots of pumpkins every where.

It can only mean that snow and sub-freezing temperatures are on their way soon! I can't help but dream of cozy cabins and cottages with warm fires, the windows frosting over and perhaps a hot cup of tea in hand (or whiskey cider!). I think I'd be happy escaping the winter in either of this beautiful spaces, but I'm curious as to which you prefer - a homey lake cabin or rustic beach cottage?

DECORATING ON A BUDGET: Modern Mix Living Room For Under $1000

Melanie here! After moving to Minneapolis with only what could fit in my car, I was left with a ton of rooms to fill up - and had almost no furniture to fill them up with. I literally didn't even have a bed when I first got here! 

I also moved here with a strict budget. Since it's important to me for my home to represent my personality, I set out to fill each room with special and sturdy pieces without breaking the bank!

This round up includes a collection of warm, vintage-inspired pieces mixed with edgy details - all in a neutral palette with fun pops of color. These pieces are easy and approachable, but pull together nicely and add lots of personality to a room!
