Welcome October- Fall in the Living Room


I'm keeping most of my decorations for fall in the living room this year. I like to keep it on the simpler side for fall and Halloween because I know what is right around the corner- Christmas. And I never want to be burnt out on Christmas decorations! I am using mostly things that I already had, keeping  #the20dollarchallenge in mind. 

I bought these velvet pumpkins a few years ago and mixed them in with a few new Hobby Lobby pumpkins that I brightened up with some white and gold paint. 


I also painted these polka dot pumpkins several years ago. Truth, nothing that you love ever goes out of style. People that know me know I am gold and white obsessed. 



I haven't gotten a chance to show you the living room, now have I?!? We painted the walls a gorgeous blue that changes shades throughout the day, and I love it. It ranges from a minty blue to grey blue and is a true chameleon. The pictures really don't even do it justice. The drapes are from our old bedroom and I love that they are serving a new purpose. They almost got put up for sale because I couldn't reinvent them in our room. The pillows are just a mix for now until I make more decisions.


On the other side of the room is our pretty mantel. I love that we now have a fireplace and mantel that doesn't have a television over it. It's fun to decorate. 



I have had the blue and white jars with cotton for a while and I am not tiring of them anytime soon. I added the cotton and other green vines for filler. Both jars I found at TJ Maxx or Ross {truely, a hidden gem for finding cheap blue and white!} I had the foam pumpkins left over from last year and painted them hot pink and gold. The mercury glass pumpkins were also from TJ Maxx last year, placed on top of gold candlesticks.





I feel like I have just enough fall decor inside now. I have a few Halloween decorations I will add in during the next few weeks. I wasn't into Halloween last year, but with a new space it is always fun to experiment and see how things look!

Seriously love everything. Your curtains remind me a little bit of the curtains in The Sound of Music that she makes their play clothes out of which is meant as a TOTAL compliment because that's my favorite movie of all time and I'm so jealous you have curtains like that. & those velvet pumpkins are gorg.
