I absolutely love to decorate my home! I change things often, always editing and tweaking. My design goal is for our home to always feel welcoming, a place that people can feel right at home. For the most part my home looks pretty much the same throughout the year. However, I amp up the level of cozy in fall.
Fall is a busy season for my family and we spend most of it in the great outdoors. It use to be consumed with soccer but now boys school ball starts in Spring so this year should be a little less hectic. After a long day all I want is to come back home to a cozy environment.
Just a little FYI, you really won't find any traditional fall decorating items in my home. No pumpkins or hues of red, green, or orange. Outside, now that's another story!
We will start off our tour in my living room and conclude out on my front porch. Lately I've been in a blue mood. No I'm not sad just loving any and everything blue. You will notice the blue influence throughout my living room. Lets get started shall we!
tv console got a complete makeover with chalk paint. It's now this lovely gray color that pops off the hardwood floors. I thought it was a good idea to start an art gallery wall and recently added a couple more pieces to my existing layout.
The print in the wooden frame is from a local Nashville artist, Ryan Rado. I picked that up at a pop up shop. I love those by the way, it's a great way to meet new interesting people and support the local market. The leaf print is actually a post card from The Menil Collection, a Houston museum. It's of a piece we saw while there last year by Henri Matisse. I can't wait to discover new art and add it to my gallery wall.
My hubby really doesn't like anything surrounding the tv so we often have to come up with a compromise. I moved the tv to one side of the console so that I could create a small vignette. The wooden lantern was a way for me to add back in a warm wood tone paired with a fun colorful bowl filled with leaves for my gratitude tree. You will find that I like to add greenery throughout my home, it provides a layer of softness and texture.
A few months back I found the most perfect floor lamp and I love it! It fits nicely in the corner and provides the softest light. Just behind that gorgeous lamp are four frames that are mostly empty. One day, my friends, one day. The goal is to add interesting landscapes of the places we have been or desire to go.
