"Fall"ing For New Decor

Fall is almost here!! With its pending arrival, I have been giving quite a bit of thought to economical ways in which I can redecorate my home for the new season. The major focal point in my living room is the fireplace, so naturally adding some autumnal pizazz to the mantle will add some color and warmth to the space. I have a heart for design but often the pieces don’t come together effortlessly for me so I either seek the advice of my bestie..check her out, or I search for images on the Internet until I find something that I like and can reasonably copy by re-purposing some items that I already have. Here are some images that I plan on using for inspiration in creating my fall mantle. Stay tuned for pics sometime next week, or the week after!!

Thinking about replacing the circles with candle pillars and candles in earth tone colors and yummy fall scents



Excuse the dust…You won’t recognize them once I’m done, and they’re mixed in with my new pieces!!

Do share your fall decorating ideas with me…I won’t steal them!

    How cute! I love decorating also and often look at countless pics online and put together something of my own. Change of seasons is always the perfect excuse for me to get something new. Whether its clothing or home decor. I can't wait to see the pics!!

    Since we are in a temporary living situation right now I won't be decorating. When we buy a house next year I'll be all about it…can't wait! Inspire me please so I can live vicariously through you…

    I was just thinking about how I could decorate for the fall with a small budget. I am looking forward to seeing your finish projected!

    I really like that frame with the leaves, very cute, I wish I had a fireplace or mantle to put that on!
