Freshening up for fall

I’m one of *those* people. You know them. You can clearly tell what season/holiday is coming up just by coming by. Let me be totally honest– I adore the changing of season…and decorating…and one adoration scratches the back of the other in this instance. So with fall swiftly approaching, I took my living room into virtual reality and came up with two ideas to freshen up my decor for fall.

Here’s what I’m starting with. I’ve been into a neutral palette lately, but fall is definitely the time when color comes into play around these parts. I’m a big believer that your foundation pieces—sofas, chairs, etc—should be neutral with color coming in the form of accents. This design belief gives me a lot of room to play with accessories while not having to reupholster my sofa every year (who can afford that?).

And just so y’all know I’m keeping it real, look at my side table…see all that stuff piled in there? I’ve got my girls and their coloring books to thank for that mess.

I’m envisioning the space warmer and richer for fall. I created two different pallets to work within that goal; one with purples and mauves, the other with burnt orange and hints of dusty blue.




Which do you prefer? Any other color palettes I should contemplate?

    Love the purple. It is unexpected but works well for fall.
