Good Monday morning!
I want to thank Kristen and Lindsay for inviting me to be part of their Fall Home Tour series. So many inspiring bloggers are part of this series, so be sure to check them out. Yesterday, Julia knocked it out of the park with her creative and creepy Halloween decor.
I love Fall and everything associated with it... jeans and boots, a crackling fire, the smell of cinnamon, a cozy throw, football, soup, hayrides, pumpkin farms, apple picking, cool air and changing colors.
Fall is the perfect time to cozy up our home by adding some elements from Mother Nature.
Pumpkins, dried hydrangeas, a painted gourd and some birch logs add texture around the fireplace.
I love clipping branches from the yard and bringing them inside.
In the living room, I simply added cable-knit pillows, some stacked books and more pumpkins.
Thank goodness for small, white pumpkins. They go with any decor and can be stashed anywhere.
Thanks to its earth tones, our side entry lends itself well to Fall decor.
I keep it pretty inexpensive and uncomplicated using pumpkins and branches again.
Since we're talking about "fresh" Fall decorating, I thought I'd take advantage of Fall's fresh air and create an outdoor gathering space to enjoy a glass of wine with friends.
I simply gathered some items from around the house and brought them outdoors to create a cozy, comfortable, alfresco Fall table.
An old rug was the perfect size for a tablecloth, and gives off a boho chic vibe.
You can't go wrong decorating with nature.
"Shut the Box"... my kids' favorite after-dinner game :)
In case anyone wants to do a little light reading about hunting... ha! :)
Lindsay and Kristen... did you notice I have a glass of wine waiting for you? Cheers to you for coordinating this fun series, and allowing me to share how I cozy up our home for Fall.
I hope you all will visit Jennifer at The Chronicles of Home tomorrow to see what fabulous Fall ideas she has in store for you.
