Fall is finally here! And yes...it did bring some cold weather :) You can bet that I didn't miss the opportunity today to wear some boots and a turtleneck. lol. The weather's not going to last for long like this so I had to capitalize on the moment.
I had a great opportunity awhile back to bring my living room into fall in....July for hgtv.com. It was fun. Also a little hard lol. You have no idea how hard it is to find gourds and pumpkins and what not in July :) So, since I obviously didn't keep my Fall decor up since July, you'll probably be seeing another post or two about how its decorated right now.
So, as you all know, my living room is rather white. White can be cold and stark (or as I see it, bright and breezy :) ), so to bring in a little warmth for Fall, I used textures but kept the color palette neutral.
I love the simplicity of this little nook. The monochromatic take may be boring to some, but I love it. And these gourds/pears are perfect for any season. I bought them last year in San Juan and haven't had to put them away yet. They work for summer and spring as as pears and fall as gourds...And for the record, I'm not sure what they really are anyway lol...probably pears. But then the bigger one is a gourd. I don't know :)
I also decided to bring in some outdoor elements using drift wood, spraypainted tree branches and a humongous pine cone.
chalkboard I posted about here. You can't see it in the pictures, but since its made out of plywood, it brings out the perfect texture for Fall. The white pumpkins are also another project throwback from last year. I'll post about them again later this week :)
