Fall touches…my family room

I think I’ve mentioned before. I love fall. It is probably my most favorite season of the year. Most years I have gone all out with my fall decorating. I would use garlands, pumpkins, pictures…you  name it.  This year however, I decided to take a much more simple approach. I wanted to have a cozy fall feel to the room without the clutter of too much stuff. It is different than I have done before, but I like it.

I did not want to completely tear apart my room to decorate for fall this year. Instead I just added a few fun touches. My blankets and pillows get added for texture and warmth. I love the color of my couches because they accept the colors of the season so well.

I added a pumpkin to my books on my ottoman.

I kept the flowers in the vase and added some chestnuts to the glass cup. Then for my cabinet all I did was find an old flashcard that said fall and displayed it on an antique metal comb.

I decided to display a painting of a pumpkin I painted last year to my table.

My orange chair is perfect on it’s own for fall, but I love my old fashion milk container next to it filled with a pillow and flour sack.

In my entry way, I kept things super simple and only added a vase of sunflowers to my dresser. It adds a little bit of fall charm along with my giant white apple.

I added my wood cork apple to my old radio. It goes so cute with my fall picture of Utah State.

So there you have it. Some fun touches I have added to my home to warm it up for the fall season. I love how just displaying a few things fall makes the room feel warm and cozy.

I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new home...one we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
