Holiday Decorations by DGR Interior Designs

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my home. With Thanksgiving being so late this year, Christmas really snuck up on me! I can’t believe it is next week. So who else was really delayed this year on getting those cards out and all your decorations up? Welcome to the club. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year and I think bring out all the decorations, enjoy the magic of Christmas and decorate, decorate, decorate. I love sparkle, fresh greens, and holly to spruce up my home. Share how are you decorating this year?

Thanksgiving Tablescapes

That time of year is here again and although I love every aspect of Thanksgiving my favorite part is looking over Thanksgiving Tablescapes for inspiration. From traditional to modern, make your table all your own this year. Add gold, or pink or choose whites and oranges. Whatever inspires you, I say go for it and have fun. Here are a few of my favorites to get you inspired. I am so thankful for your business, your support and I want to wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving!

A Glamorous Halloween

This year it is all about a glamorous Halloween! Glitter, glitter and more glitter. Halloween is not just for the kids anymore. We adults can also have a great night by throwing a dinner party, having some great Halloween cocktails while all the trick or treating happens. Of course, my favorite part is the home decor. Set up a designated area for scary cocktails  and use some glitter decals for glasses, decorate with some sparkly skulls, some black striped straws and you’re well on your way to a very glam night. Here is some inspiration to get you started, Halloween is just two weeks away! Enjoy.

Fall Fabric 2014

Fall officially arrived this past Tuesday, although it may not feel like it this weekend. We had a few nice cool crisp days, but this weekend we get to enjoy a few days and probably the final days of some 80 degree weather here in the East Coast. Regardless pumpkin picking will be happening this weekend, getting mums for the front steps and maybe even planning to make an apple crisp. There are so many wonderful fall activities, but of course my very favorite is adding some fall home decor. Transitioning to a different season can be easily done by swamping out some of your home accents. Pillows, bed linens, curtains and bring out the throws. Did you know that if work with me, you get access to a seasonal choice of fabrics at incredible prices that you can’t get anywhere else! One of the many perks of working directly with an interior designer. Here is just a small sneak peek at this years fall fabrics. Love what you see? Contact me and we can go shopping to create the perfect custom home accents to help you transition to fall.

Back To School Organization from DGR Interior Designs

Happy first day back to school today for Branford! In honor of back to school, I wanted to share some back to school organizing tips. It is all about labeling, chalkboards, creating stations so that everything is organized. It will make mornings better, the evenings smoother and altogether keeping all those school items organized will help your sanity. As we get ready for Labor Day weekend, this is a great time to get organized and get ready to fully kick off fall in a few weeks. Hope everyone had a great first day back and enjoy the last weekend of summer.
