Happy Fall, Y’all!! It’s our favorite time of the year and there is so much to love about this season. Fall leaves, cooler temps (hopefully arriving soon) , boots and sweaters, football season, and pumpkin spice everything. Adding a little bit of fall decor in your home can make a big change. This early fall living room refresh shows you just how easy it is!
Today I’m thrilled to be joining with some of our super talented friends. We will each be sharing our favorite rooms for our Celebrate Fall Home Tour, hosted by Leen of Sand Dollar Lane. You will get to see 14 lovely home tours, full of lots of fall inspiration and ideas. The fabulous list of home tours is at the bottom of this post. If you found us by way of Angie of Postcards From the Ridge, welcome!
Typically the living room is the first space to receive the fall treatment. Real pumpkins won’t be available for another week or two, so we are sharing how we use faux pumpkins. Adding natural elements, such as twigs, greenery and flowers lends to a more authentic look.
Start With a Focal Point
This pumpkin painting was a gift from a friend a few years ago. It became the cornerstone and focal point for the mantel decor. Kind of like life imitating art.
How to Create Fall Floral Centerpieces
Next, we created the floral arrangements for each side of the mantel. You may have read Jenn’s post on how to create an Easy Limelight Floral Centerpiece. We used the same idea to create these arrangements. The limelights came from her yard, while the greenery is from my decor stash. The curly twigs have been collected over time.
We love creating and crafting our own decor. A few years ago, we created a super-cute fall pillow using THIS method. It adds a personal touch to the living room. We used free artwork from Graphics Fairy.
We love, love love vintage wooden dough bowls and trays. Over the years we have collected a few wasp nests. When they are dried out, they look great displayed in the bowl. Other natural elements are moss balls and pinecones.
A couple of years ago, we bleached some pinecones. They look much lighter – almost blonde-like.
When the temps finally start to cool, we love to have a big basket filled with throws. This way, everyone can snuggle-in and be cozy when watching TV.
We hope that you have enjoyed our part of the home tour! Next up is the very talented Michelle, of Thistle Key Lane!
