Home decorating continues to have no hard, fast rules.  Decorate any way that pleases you!  The emphasis is on creating a unique space that reflects your individualism. 

Along with individualism, the key theme of Autumn/Winter is “heirloom”.  Preserving and using timeless antiques and treasures that we already have makes sense in this economy.  Handmade accessories for the home, using traditional fabrics and classic styles are very popular.  

You will see lots of traditional cloths, weaves and knits in the stores this season.  Along with neutral colours like oatmeal, grey and cream, some spicier colours like lime, chili and cinnamon will be mixed in.

To counterbalance all the earthy, traditional fabrics, you can use some bold, colourful patterns like geometrics and large florals.
