The change in seasons brings about a wonderful opportunity to redecorate your home. This fall, look beyond the traditional maple leaves, pumpkins, and warm colors, and turn to the runway for great ideas to spruce up your spaces. With classic prints and luxurious leather, the fashion trends of Fall 2013 are a rich source of inspiration that will give your home a fun and stylish edge.

Incorporate this versatile shade in your home by taking down your summer drapes and replacing them with subtle, silvery gray curtains.
