Do you guys know what Friday is?
FRIDAY IS THE FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF FALL!
I’m a girl who is a big fan of all four seasons.
I absolutely LOVE the summer…no major schedules, staying up way past our bedtimes, meals made on the grill, and days spent pool side are some of my absolute favorites but when school is back in session I begin thinking of everything fall.
I start craving the crisp fall mornings, all the pumpkins, and layers of clothing (we still have some time on this one here in Texas). So while I was home bound helping Britt recover, I invited my favorite fall decorator over to help. Marla (my mother-in-law) to the rescue!
We whipped my house into FALL shape! Here’s a little peek inside…
(Let me add-the lighting is pretty awful. I tried to steer clear of areas with full-blown sunlight, but our house gets a lot of sunlight.)
Marla outdid herself this time and we found ourselves moving furniture around just to give three rooms a new look.
A closer look at the front room fireplace…
I love the way this mantel turned out…pumpkins, cotton, and leaves!
The living room is a much more casual room. As much as I want the pillows to all stay neat, tidy, and in place, I want this to be a space my family finds comfy and cozy. Marla and I found that moose and knew it would be perfect on this mantel.
Some pumpkin pillows with a plaid throw (and a whole lot of baby toys). 🙂
I try to stick to more “fall” decor…not necessarily “Halloween” so I can keep it up until I change it out for Christmas. I decided to keep the Halloween decor to just this one spot so I’ll just switch this area out when Halloween is over.
I’m by no means an interior decorator, but I think it’s important and just plain fun to add seasonal touches throughout our house. And drinking from those pumpkin mugs just makes me happy.
Here’s to hoping the weather cooperates and sends a little “FALL” our way. XO
