Trend Alert: 2018's HOTTEST Top Holiday Décor Style

This year’s hottest holiday décor style is dubbed “Modern Farmhouse.” Inspired by HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” star interior designer, Joanna Gaines, “Modern Farmhouse” is not only practical, modern, and rustic, but cost-efficient and comfortable, too. Gaining traction in early 2018, “Modern Farmhouse” searches on Etsy are up 142% compared to last year and according to Google Trends, interest in the search term doubled year over year.

The “Modern Farmhouse” style consists of warm tones, wood accents, plaid/striped or solid fabrics in dark reds, greys and blacks, beige and sage green hues, as well as galvanized steel, and other rustic, industrial, and vintage-themed materials. When considering your furnishings, “Modern Farmhouse” gears towards imperfect paint jobs, preferring chipping paint and a weathered look in beige or cream paired with bright and bold hues; “Modern Farmhouse” is the opposite of perfection in all the best ways possible. In fact, you don’t even have to match your furniture…

This is a beautiful time of year, when the leaves turn all those magic colors and the air gets crisp. The sun shines brighter, somehow, in the midst of cooler days, and we walk around in wonder at the world's changing beauty.

We walk around, or we snuggle up with a cozy blanket and bask in the sunshine allowed by our floor-to-ceiling glass wall sunroom.



Doesn't it make you want to simply gather and enjoy the company of your friends? It would be lovely, a party in your sunroom where you sit and laugh and converse about the changing lives like changing leaves, all the while the sun goes down and brings a perfect stillness under the stars.

The Screen Matters Kristine Thomason writes for HGTV.com that the screen definitely has to be considered first and foremost. You can't just roll some 42 inch television out to the deck with an extra long cord running into the house. Projectors have gotten much more affordable over the years and there are a lot of options for a screen. Renting a large inflatable screen is one way to show your fall outdoor movie. Another easy solution is a covered patio solution, like LifeRoom by Four Seasons, with automatic screens. LifeRoom screens make for the ultimate big screen e…

How to Host The Ultimate Game Night in Your Sunroom

Remember when the sole mission of summer was having fun with friends? Listening for the sound of the ice cream truck, making belly-flops in the pool, catching fireflies in a jar, collecting seashells on the shore... Our childhood summers centered around the single mission of entertaining ourselves and our friends.
