Kara’s List - Second Week of October 2019

Hi guys!

The last time I blogged was over four years ago. At that time, I was working for a design firm in Richmond, VA and was blogging on the side with the intention of turning “Kara Theresa” into an Interior Design company. In the spring of 2016, my husband and I moved back to New Jersey and I stopped the blog to focus solely on growing my business, Kara Theresa LLC.

Three and a half years later, I’ve got the cutest little four and a half month old girly, the most supportive husband and a growing business with new, exciting projects in the works!


Because I love shopping. AND I constantly get asked what my favorites are for home decor, tabletop, clothing, shoes, accessories and many more! I believe that someone’s personal style should coincide with the style of their home. For example, if your wardrobe consist of jeans, brown, leather shoes and white tops, your home should could consist of shades of white textures, with touches of brown, leather furniture and varying blue fabrics.

The 8 items listed below are just some of my fall favorites, both home decor and fashion picks. Some of these items I have purchased for myself, some are sitting in my cart and some are accessories that are spec for a current project.

ONE - I'm all about keeping the kitchen counter minimal and de-cluttered. If you use your knife set on the reg, opt for this chic marble block.

TWO - I live in flats! I have a pair of similar Madewell, brown flats that I wear several times a week. I love this color & am always a fan of the pointed toe.

THREE - Obsessed with the combination of glass, vegetable leather and brass details. Top off this canister with some greenery and you’re good to go!

FOUR - When it comes to holiday decor, I like to keep it very simple and make sure that the decorations mesh well with my aesthetic. These pumpkins are the best centerpiece for a coffee or dining table.

FIVE - You can never go wrong with white dishes! I love the textured, white glaze of these mugs.

SIX -I have a million throw blankets in my apartment but I think it’s completely appropriate considering I am always cold…right?! This plaid throw will be a timeless piece in your home. Use code GUESTPREP to get 20% off your purchase!

SEVEN - Current Elliot has the softest jeans so I turned to them for my most recent purchase. I bought this pair and am expecting them in the mail any day now. Use code CEFRIENDS to get 30% off your purchase!

EIGHT - This is the time of year where I start to have a candle burning at all hours of the day. Madewell carries some of my favorite candles and I love the sleekness & scent of this one.
