Fall FAUX-ness

You know the number one thing I love about decorating for Fall?  
It seems that NO ONE is apologizing for putting out anything "FAUX"!  
For some reason, when it comes to fall decorations, "FAUX" goes! And since I have lots of the "fake" stuff, I say bring it on!!!

Today, I am taking you on a tour of the fall decorating I've done in different areas of our home.  And yes, there is lots of "faux" to be found!

A display on the coffee table in the living room

An end table in the living room
Small table behind love seat near front door entry

Kitchen table
Kitchen island display - hope I'm making all of you with outdated Hunter Green countertops feel better about yourselves! Or am I trying to make myself feel better? (on the list of reno's coming up!)

Kitchen countertop display near stove

Sofa table beside fireplace
Closer view of these wire candleholders I got from Partylite last year.
Shelf display near kitchen
Table by front windows where we enjoy lots of our meals.
Close up of one set of my beloved Trio Glass Vases

Small table in dining room

Shelf in dining room

Atop one of Mr. Delight's ginormous speakers (what's a girl to do when the hubby wants loud sound? Decorate around it of course!)
Shelf in spare bedroom (wall colour looks very different - IRL it is actually a terra cotta colour )

Middle shelf on etagere in living room (middle pumpkin is one that lights up)

Top shelf of etagere with similar display

See how I have the light-up pumpkin turned around now for a Halloween display?

Living room coffee table decor
Wreath I MADE for the front door (amazing for me as I'm not very crafty AT ALL!!)
End table in TV Room downstairs

Other end table in TV Room

Close up of decor inside a "squatty" lidded vase/jar.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my decor when I know there is so much Fall Inspiration out there at the following blogs I'm linking to this week.   
Go enjoy some more Fall FAUX-ness!

You are so right about the way everyone embraces faux for fall....or maybe it's the time of year that makes them fall for faux. My favorite is the vignette with the pitcher and th eplate in your kitchen. Absolutely lovely. I must go find some of those trio glass vases. They work in so many situations! Thank you for sharing your charming designs. Cherry Kay

Enjoyed seeing all your pretty Fall decor. All my Fall decor is faux, with the exception of a few pine cones and cinnamon sticks. I meant to stop for a pumpkin or 2 and Fall flowers today, but was back home when I remembered.
Enjoy your weekend.

Enjoy the season!

Hi! Just saw that you linked this up to the party! Ok, I never thought about it before but you are soooooo right about fall/winter giving us permission to go "faux" it! :-) Your arrangements around your house are beautiful and it was fun to take a little tour! Thanks again for joining Inspiration Friday this week!

Natasha said...

I love your decorations. I wish it was Fall here so I could join with all the Autumnal decorating going on in Blogland. I love your ideas-thanks for posting these beautiful pictures.

Best wishes,

Your fall decor is so pretty! ZI really love the kitchen island display! And no worries about the hunter green counters... I think we all have one, or two, or twenty outdated things about our homes! LOL!

Such beautiful Fall vignettes. I have got to get some of those glass vases with the glass inserts. You do such pretty things with those. Love that plate and pitcher in your kitchen and the display under and in glass on your countertop. All of it is so pretty. Thank you for linking all of this Fallness to Favorite Things Sat. laurie

Your fall decorations are just gorgeous. Everything looks so warm and cozy. My favorite is the living room coffee table and blending of the blue in the TV room.
Thanks for visiting my blog and your sweet comments. Annette

Becca said...

I love all of your Fall *faux-ness*! You have quite a gift for arranging vignettes ... I can't pick a fave; however, I especially love the one on your coffee table with the grapes mixed in. I'm a huge fan of *faux* myself. :) Thanks for sharing your beautiful Fall decor, and thank you for leaving me such a sweet note about my Fall buffet! Take care, Becca

sheila from life @ #17 said...

wow, you have been busy :) I do think my favourite is the chubby hurricane filled with the little pumpkins (how cute is that?!) and your Mr Turkey...

Chic Creations said...

Very very beautiful. Love all the displays of Fall. Thanks for sharing.

You have excellent taste there's certainly nothing faux about that, giggle. I posted my fall table at my blog. Used faux grapes.
Hugs! Katherine
