Nesting for Fall!

It's time for Metamorphosis Monday!
I usually feature projects I'm working on, but this week I'm nesting for Fall! Are you guys getting in the mood for Fall?
Fall is one of my favorite times of year and I love getting the house warm and fuzzy!
I began transforming my living room from my normal neutral palate to a warmer one.

(I didn't do a full shot of the room, sorry!)


With a few simple changes, the room already feels different...see for yourself


I didn't do much changing the mantle area, I left the original photo collage and sconces, but removed the leaning art and photographs and opted to bring a simplified arrangement with vases and candles.

I changed the white candle in the sconces to a bittersweet color. My "leather" ottoman usually lives at the end of my bed, but I like to bring it out in the living room, not only for the additional seating, but leather just feels like fall!

Colorful pillows help the sofa join in the fun!

I didn't forget my window treatments! Changing from a solid silk panel to a fun plaid and I think it's feeling cozy!
This is just the beginning! Gourds, pumpkins and bittersweet will be following!

Thanks for coming to visit me! Be sure to visit Susan and all the Met Monday participants at Between Naps on the Porch!

Thanks for hosting Susan!

Thank you Susan for hosting!

  3. What wonderful changes! I love that you changed the drapes. They are just perfect. It won't be long until you can light that fire and you have the perfect place it sit.

  4. The room looks beautiful. I love the photo display above your fireplace!!! The drapes add such a warm feel to the room. Isn't it nice to change things up from season to season?

  5. What beautiful fall colors you put into the room. I love it. You have very great taste!

  6. Beautiful transformation. The ottoman infront of the fireplace really has a cozy feel. I love fall as well.

  7. Very nice and a great way to prepare for autumn. Even though it's still hot in Arkansas, I'm getting a few of my autumn pieces out. It won't be long before things cool down!

    I'm lovin' the new curtains and the leather bench looks great in front of the fireplace.
