With temperatures dropping to the 40’s and leaves falling fast from the trees, it’s no longer possible to deny fall is here.
Now, I don’t do much in the way of seasonal decorating, maybe because living in Houston so many years there’s not much of a difference from one season to another. Here in Maine, however, it’s impossible not to be aware of the seasons which inspire some changes in decor.
Let’s start on the front porch where pots of flowers are replaced with pumpkins and gourds
and a new wreath on the front door welcomes visitors.
Inside, change for me always starts with rearranging furniture, so everything is shifted to a new place in the room. ( The hubby groans.) Summer slipcovers are replaced with ones in rich red tones.
I couldn’t decide what fabric I most wanted to use on the sofa, so I had slips made combining seven different ones.
My favorite pattern is the paisley which is repeated on the chairs.
Here and there is a new accessory, a fall arrangement on the dining room table,
a sprig of berries in a vase,
orange and yellow dahlias on the table,
gourds and wildflowers wherever there is a space.
Unlike many of yours, my mantel is not wide enough to decorate, but I did find a garland to lay atop the stone. So, there we are all done for fall and, with a tweak or two, for winter as well. Isn’t it fun to see what we can do to change things up with little effort?
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
