Living Room Fall Decor 2011

With the onset of Fall, my desire to decorate goes beyond the dining room table so I thought I'd share with you some of the seasonal changes I've made to our living room.

First, I'll show you the layout of the room and then we'll focus in on the details. 


This is the view towards front entry. We've updated a few things in the LR  recently with new furniture, pic on wall, lamps, etc.


Still waiting on the fireplace update....but we do enjoy sitting in these fireside wingback chairs.

Fall Mantelscape for 2011

Faux grasses were placed in a short black wooden vase to give height.


On one end table, faux fruit was placed inside a wooden chest that holds drink coasters.


On the other end table, some seasonal touches are added with a bright faux bouquet and a white pumpkin.

A fall centerpiece for the coffee table  is created from three cylinder vases placed on a mirror.

Faux leaves and votive candles were placed on gold glass beads in the inserts on top.

Glittered pumpkins are placed on orange "ice" chunks inside the bottom of the cylinder vases.



Some tall grasses in a black vase, a square orange pillar and a leaf bowl adorn this tabletop.

Leaves and pumpkins are placed on the shelves of the etagere.

I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my living room.
I find the colours of fall very appealing and have enjoyed adding them to my already "fall-toned" decor throughout the house. 

Thanks for visiting. I hope you'll check back again later on to see some other displays I've created in the kitchen.

I'll be linking this post to these fabulous blog parties:

Oh wow, everything is gorgeous. I love the mantel and all of the end tables, so pretty. I also totally adore the coffee table vignette. What a great idea to place the candles on a mirror and the pumpkins under the candle is perfect. Very creative. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

I'm so glad I "landed" here from Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday! Love your fall decorations, but what caught my eye is the hurricanes on the mirror. I have used my similar hurricanes in several of my posts, but hadn't thought of putting them on a mirror--you can be sure I'll be "using" your idea soon. What a great idea! I'm following you; hope you'll find mine interesting enough to follow too!

Amanda said...

I, too, love the hurricanes on the mirror! Simply stunning! I am picturing silver and gold at Christmas on my dining room table! So glad to have found you thru Tablescaper!! Your home is so warm and inviting! Love, love your mantel, too!!
