Want to know something random?! I hate pumpkin spice lattes. Really, it’s true. And I know hate is a strong word, but it’s pretty accurate. This weekend I was in Starbucks and it seemed like pretty much everyone around me was going coo-coo over pumpkin spice lattes and I just can’t get into it. NOT. AT. ALL. And to be honest, I don’t really like pumpkin flavored anything. Unless it’s pumpkin bread, but only if it’s not too pumpkin-y and even then sometimes I don’t like it. Anyway, I’m totally rambling and probably boring you to death, so let’s move on. Today I’m super duper excited to share some cozy fall decor in our front room. I spruced it up this weekend and I gotta say–I LOVE IT so much. In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever loved this room more than I do right now and that’s saying a lot. I think it’s just the pops of orange and browns that are making me so happy, which is a bit surprising for this neutral loving gal. But it feels so darn cozy and you guys know I love me some coziness. I took about 4281 photos, so grab your coffee and get comfortable!
You might remember that pumpkin patch pillow from last year. Isn’t that so adorable? I was excited to bring it out of storage and use it again this year. It just makes me happy.
I stacked up a bunch of my vintage suitcases and that cute wicker basket to make a fun focal piece in front of that old screen door. Then I used a little plaid throw (from Hobby Lobby) for just a pop of fall color in this corner. And of course I had to grab some fresh sunflowers because they always remind me of fall.
My idea for this room was to make two focal points: one on the coffee table/trunk and another over in the corner by door. I wanted to keep everything else super basic and simple. So for this coffee table I just combined some faux fall florals, a little wooden pumpkin, and that old clay pot. I love the dark orange color on that chippy pot–I think it’s perfect for fall.
And I couldn’t resist piling up a bunch of mini pumpkins in that wire basket!
I loooooooove the way this room is looking for fall and I had so much fun putting it all together. I think the pops of color have really brought this space to life and I just wish I could hang out in here all day long with a cup of coffee and a good magazine. Maybe even a brownie. A girl can dream, right? Too bad I have 981,702 other things to do and three little people to take care of. BUT in my imagination, I’m there. And so are you!
Thank you sooooo much for dropping in today. And while you’re here you might want to stop by these other fall posts for a few more ideas:
