Fall Mantle 2017

It may not feel like fall much outside... but I"m making sure that it's starting to feel like fall inside. 
Fall is my favorite time of year- I love it when the weather (finally decides to) change, I love chilly soccer game mornings, hot cups of tea & cuddling under all those blankets that hubby rolls his eyes at. (You can NEVER have too many blankets)

So even if it's 90 degrees outside, I'm going to enjoy some fall decor for a good bit until it's time to break out all things Christmas. 

I thought I'd show you a quick peek into our fall home...

I wanted to stay with a very neutral palette, trying to keep to lots of natural textures, colors & clean whites. I think things are so hectic in life right now that keeping things clean & subtle was a must for my mind right now :) 

The white frames are thrifted finds that have been painted & distressed. The "Apples' sign was a simple DIY a few years back. Grapevine pumpkin & gold leaf were JoAnns finds. The pretty piece of pottery was found at a local craft fair. 

I made the backdrop frame last year (?) I think out of scrap barn wood & chicken wire. Super easy. Super heavy. 

The golden wreath was made in the same way as my Fall Rosette wreath. 
Mirror was another painted thrifted find. 

The dining room gets such pretty light that the neutral/subtle tones just shifted beautifully into this room as well. The table centerpiece happened by accident when I piled pumpkins into that dough bowl to transport them and then decided that I really liked them there :) 

I added a few twirly twigs, burlap leaves & slid an old piece of wood underneath to give it a bit more bulk/length to it. The wood is actually a sign that I wasn't using so I flipped it over to use it another way. 

The buffet is recently painted so I've never had it white for the holidays. I love that I can add color to the top without it feeling so lost & heavy. 
I don't typically go with so many things at once but it gave it an almost flea market/vintage feel to it. 

I love the mix of metallics, glass & various textured pumpkins. 
The metallic candles are all Target dollar bin finds and the pumpkins are from so many different places! I think the dark orange velvet one is my favorite. 

The glass milk bottle was from my dad when he was little so I love having an excuse to put it out. 

Those fabric pumpkins are Target Dollar bin finds from this year!! For a dollar a piece, I bought all I could find. I love the pale green/blue ones!! I'm pretty sure that little sign is Target too. Addiction, much?!

The best thing about our pretty little house is having TWO mantles to decorate. Be still my heart. 

The chalkboard was the perfect centerpiece this go around- I haven't used it in several years so it felt like it was time to bring it out again. You won't believe what it started as!! Check out how I transformed it here

Let's see... the 'give thanks' sign & wooden mirror are Target. The little pumpkins are from various shops. The mirror, post office door & wooden candlestick are thrifted. The two golden signs & orange pumpkin were DIY. 

I still love this little white-washed pumpkin sign.

I had fun adding to my favorite blue table for fall. It makes everything bright & happy. Golds & burlap are the perfect touch for it. 

Ending with one of my simple set-ups. I filled my makeshift tray (put together with an old cabinet door & scrap wood) with metallic candlesticks, candles & pumpkins. A couple marble & copper candlesticks rounded it all together. I love how the light picks up on these pretties!! So so fall. 

How are you guys decorating for fall this year? Are you as into neutrals & metallics as I am at the moment? 

I hope you enjoyed our mini fall home tour. Now I'm off to snuggle up with my blankets & hot tea :)
