Happy ‘Official” Fall, Ya’ll!
Even though today is the first official day of Autumn, last week really brought some fall-like weather for us here in the South, and I’m loving it!
I’ve kept my fall decor to a minimum, mainly due to the (still) curious little hands that love to touch everything. I just know he’d see one of my many ceramic pumpkins and think, “BALL!”- no bueno! So only a few pumpkins are on display this year, mostly out of toddler reach, but strategically placed to be noticed.
Switching out my light+bright area rug for a dark grey shag that really grounds the room (cost = $0 as I swapped it out from underneath our master bed), has proven to be the most impactful update to the room.
I added a few fur toss pillows to the seating areas- fur is my ALL-TIME fave texture for fall and winter!
Adding pops of aubergine throughout the room has really transformed it from the spring/summer look I had with tulips and layers of Pool Blue, to a much more romantic feeling.
Another of my current favorite is this driftwood log. I used it all summer to add a nautical feel in our navy blue dining room, but I love it paired with the deep purples, too!
