All it takes to get your home feeling like fall is a trip to your local craft store and a little rearranging. Most of the changes I made were from things I already owned that were stored away or in other parts of our home.
The living room and dining room are the places that I made all of the changes. These are the rooms most seen and used by ourselves and our guests. And because we didn't transform the whole house, we could easily pull fall inspired things from other rooms to add to these.
First, I removed all of my cool tones from the living room, including pillows, accessories and artwork.
I replaced the artwork by the TV (which I moved to our bedroom) with a skyline painting featuring lots of warm tones.
I also got rid of the sea foam colored pitcher and replaced it with a brown ceramic pumpkin and orange glass vase filled with leaves, sticks and pine cones I purchased at Hobby Lobby.
Then it was time for the bookcase. Unfortunately, I don't have a good "before" shot to show you, but I can tell you all I added was some berries, a red candle and some pine cones to my already existing glass jars. Yet another easy fix.
The dining room table was also an easy makeover. I changed my table runner to a nice mustard yellow one I had, added my glass blown pumpkin luminaries, a fresh bouquet of flowers, and switched out my white napkins for brown ones.
As I mentioned, we switched out things in the living room with things from other rooms of our house. So in turn, our bedroom got a mini makeover as well. The gold throw we had on our bed with replaced with the blue throw we had in the living room, instantly making the room feel cool and calm. The only other change in this picture is the flower arrangement (from green to pink). I thought it was interesting to see what a difference 2 little changes can make in a room.
The dresser before was lacking a little something, but now that the artwork that was hanging in the living room is in our room, the dresser seems complete again. And the blues in the picture work well with the new blue throw.
Do you see some changes in your home that you can make to bring Autumn inside?
