Our Fall Sitting Room ...

Pin It!
Happy Tuesday, friends!

I'm continuing our Fall tour today and sharing our little sitting room, which is the first room you see when you walk through the door.  Come on in, toss the pillows off the chairs and grab a seat!


I stuck with the neutral Fall tones in here this year (like I did in our great room), and, admittedly, I like how calm, yet seasonal, I hope it feels in here.



Large ceramic acorns (from Hobby Lobby) join faux leaves and shed antlers, all tucked into a little "dough-ish" bowl:


On our mantel, I took down the blue mirror from our Summer coastal look, and replaced it with this fabulous barn print from Kirkland's ... I knew I had to have it when it was on sale for 40% off! 


The barn art helped to set the tone for the muted colors I'd surround it with ....


My apologies to the faux Fall branches that I took apart to nestle in between our white faux pumpkins.


To lend to the mandatory Fall "cozy" feel, I brought back these handsome throws from IKEA to try and suck you into to sit here for awhile ... 


This cute pumpkin from Michael's helps bring a bit of the green tones from the mantel to this side of the room ... they have the best selection this year (it helps that all of their Fall goodies 40% off, too)!



Just for fun, here's what our sitting room looked like this time last year! 


I think our son has *almost* forgiven me for not bringing back the Halloween mice and bats this year in here ... *almost* !! 


Thanks so much for stopping ... I still have more Fall to share, so I hope you'll join me in the coming days!

Our Fall Sunroom ...

Pin It!
Greetings, friends!

Here we are ... already October 6th!  We'll be putting up Christmas trees before we know it ... but before that happens, I'm sharing a bit more of our Fall home.

Come on in to our little sunroom, right off of the kitchen.  I know I've said it before, but this is the room where I find myself tossing pillows from the love seat ... grabbing a magazine ... and relaxing, well, if not snoozin'.


Just for fun, let's look at where this room started the Fall we moved in two years ago ... we had painted the walls Manchester Tan and there was lots of seasonal color!


Then, the next year, the walls *magically* turned Ben Moore's Palladian Blue ... and furniture, curtains and the rug were traded for other pieces we had in other spots in our home.  I loved this wall color and will be adding it somewhere else in our house!


Then, not too long ago, the walls got a new "planked" look that were then painted White Dove, which we absolutely love and wish we'd done sooner!  At least there is one Fall "constant," and that is the pretty autumnal prints I found at Home Goods a couple of years ago.  See, I "do" keep some items!  


When I put this room back together after planking the walls and removing the bamboo shades, the window just needed "something" ... that's when our oversized clock from Kirkland's came up from the basement to become a focal point.  I like how it "balances" the Fall prints, too!



While there are a few little pieces of rust and orange, I tried to keep the soft muted seasonal tones going in here, too.


A little bit of animal print made its way in here, too ... 


It's hard to believe that in just a few weeks, these prints will come down and up will go something welcoming the "most wonderful time of the year!"  I hope you'll come back then to visit!


Thanks for stopping by,
