Friday Faves...Simple Fall Decor part two

Last week I wrote a post about how my seasonal decorating style has changed over the years. I still love to reflect the season in my decorating, but I now prefer a simpler, cleaner, more uncluttered and less "over the top" approach. I prefer real items from nature, like a foraged branch of autumn leaves, over faux foliage. 

You can see what I mean in these two previous posts.

The photo below gives you some perspective of the layout of our home.  When you come in the front door of our house the double arches into the living area are on your right.  The antique library table and wooden cubby featured in the photos above are on the diagonal wall between the archway and the entrance into the dining room, nook and kitchen.  To the left are the doors into my home office and the hallway to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
With that said, you'll notice in these photos that my autumn decor features simple things such as cozy candlelight, stalks of wheat, white pumpkins and dried acorns, pods and nuts.
 I do like to bring out this little squirrel and pumpkin that I've had for many years.

 The warmth of copper is another favorite of mine.
I also enjoy using the texture of wooden bowls, beads and candlesticks in my decor.

Peaceful, warm, and cozy, that's what I want my home to feel like during this autumn season.

 It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and a safe and BLESSED weekend!



  1. It's so fun to peek into your home. It does look cozy and peaceful. Thanks for inviting us in!

  2. Your home definitely looks peaceful, relaxed and cozy - and I love it! Where did you find those teeny, tiny pumpkins? Or are they something else?

    1. They are baby boo pumpkins. I bought them at Trader Joe's.
