Switching it up, whether big, like the addition of a statement wall hanging or granite countertops, or small, such as swapping out knobs or new barware, can make an impactful change in your home. Discover original ideas and top trends for freshening up your space this fall, here.


The stunning, elegant look of marble is about to become more attainable than ever. Paracca Interiors now offers Marble Attaché by Daltile, a porcelain tile featuring the appearance of some of the world’s finest marbles, without the upkeep and price of traditional marble. Select from six, nature-inspired shades ranging from clean, white Calacatta to dark, sensual Nero in three finishes — matte, satin, and polished — and elevate a bathroom or living space to a sleeker, more stylish setting. The new line also incorporates another chic element: larger tiles — much bigger than the standard 12×12 inches. Says Paracca Interiors Sales and Marketing Manager Sallie Star Paracca, “The biggest trend we are seeing from our vendors is just that: big. The modular or rectangular size is coming in as large 24×48 inches and gives a beautiful, clean look by making your space feel bigger with fewer grout lines! These [Marble Attaché] 24×48 are stunning!” We couldn’t agree more. Paracca Interiors, 1000 Pittsburgh Road, Valencia. 724.586.7777.

Shake up your space with lovely, new additions

“What I love about taxidermy pieces, especially the bigger exotic ones like the bison, is that they are not a very common décor piece,” says Toll Gate Revival owner Seth Hunter. “People gravitate towards it and want to know more about it. It’s a conversation starter and a true statement piece. A single taxidermy mount won’t turn your space into a hunting lodge either; it will add a classy, eclectic vibe with a dash of Americana.”
