SOME FALL FUN

It’s been a while since my last post, almost about 2 months! Time flies and sometimes life just gets in the way. Between my daytime job, kids and everything in between, life has been a little bit hectic. Today’s post is just a quick look at some Fall decorating ideas. Here in Montreal where we live, true Fall is so short – the colors don’t last very long, so I like to make the best of it and bring some Fall inside too. I’m personally more partial to neutral decor rather than too many autumnal colours. I do prefer to see them outside rather than in. I’m also trying to find white pumpkins for our stoop, but for now I kept with the traditional orange. Whatever color scheme you choose, try to take the time and enjoy your decorating. It’s a nice way to escape from all of life’s crazy moments!

Hope you enjoy, happy decorating!

A combination of mercury glass and resin pumpkins. I love how all the textures and metallic tones play off of each other. How cool are the faux studded ones? They were a must when I saw them! I bought them all at HomeSense.

Notice the pyramid – you always want to try to create a triangular shape when arranging items together. Usually an odd number works best, but because there’s so many varied sizes here, the even number works fine. I love the baby pumpkin, so cute!

You can see how well they work in my dinging room - you've seen this room in previous posts. They suit the space and don't scream Fall but they're a subtle way of highlighting the season. Even though there's many of them, the 'non-color' keeps it simple.

Here I put the studded pumpkin with my hurricanes. The symmetry keeps it simple and elegant.

Here I used another baby pumpkin with some driftwood and more books of course! It's simple to make a Fall statement and keep it understated.
