Fall Decor for the Living Room

Yesterday I wrote about getting the Living Room cleaned up and ready for some Fall “foofing”.  I can’t even begin to think creatively when a space is a big ol’ mess.  So, after a few hours of vacuuming, mopping, and dusting (obviously, I had fallen behind in my normal housekeeping duties!) there was a clean slate to work with.

I don’t have any kitschy Fall decor items, so I shopped my house and yard for things that gave the “feeling” of warm and cozy.

Here’s what I discovered:

soft throw blanket

~soft and cozy throw blankets to snuggle up in on cool evenings.


~yummy smelling vanilla candles and elements of nature (that hunk of wood is from the beach)

basket in the corner

~a basket filled with magazines to read by the fire,


~and containers filled with seasonal flowers and nuts.

This time, I decided to stage the bookcases with – wait for it – Books!

It’s a heavier feel than the light and airy summer look, but it somehow seems appropriate for Fall.

Here it is all together…

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Fall day!
