So I think it’s safe to say fall has officially arrived in Colorado. You guys, this week has been down right cold and we’ve had nothing but rain and cloudy skies. Really, it’s been four straight days of gloomy weather and I’m just about over it. We even had to turn our heater on for the first time this week. And at this point I just neeeeeeeed sunshine. I mean, it doesn’t even have to be warm out. I just want the sunshine. Is that too much to ask? Probably. But the weather people say that warmer temps are headed our way soon, so I’m crossing my fingers and hoping they’re right this time. Anyway, that’s enough belly-aching about the weather. Let’s get on with the post, shall we? Today is a fun one because I’m sharing how I added a bit of simple fall decor to our cozy living room. And the best part is that I’ve joined a group of 16 talented bloggers for a fun blog tour where everyone is sharing how they’ve decorated their homes for fall. It’s going to be a good one folks, so grab your coffee and let’s get started!
I know I say this every time I post anything with our reading nook, but gosh I love this spot so darn much. I actually sit in there all the time to work or watch TV. It’s easily one of my all-time favorite projects we have ever done. You can see how we transformed this empty space into a cozy nook in this post. And if you’re curious about that purdy wreath you can see how I made it in this post.
Ok, so I had to include at least one vintage find in this room. I just couldn’t help myself. How fun is this old antique copper boiler full of pumpkins? I just love those wooden handles. I got this from my sweet mom and let me tell you–this guy is super old. I can remember seeing it in our living room when I was growing up, so it’s really fun to use it in my own living room now. And bonus–it makes the perfect spot for a bunch of pumpkins!
I don’t know about you guys, but as soon as the temperatures start to cool down I always have a candle lit in the house.The colder weather just makes me crave all things cozy, so candles are one of my must-have essentials for fall. This one is Cuban Vanilla and it smells sooooooo yummy.
I was so excited to find real mini white pumpkins last weekend, so I snagged a huge bag of them. Then I promptly rushed home and put them all in this antique dough bowl. Talk about easy and simple coffee table decor for fall.
Our living room may be small, but it sure is cozy this time of year. I just love this room so much–it really is the heart of our home. And it didn’t take much to give this space a warm, fall vibe. It’s simple, but that’s just the way I like. Well I sure hope you enjoyed today’s post and got a few ideas for your own home. Thanks so much for dropping by the blog today.
