I have a tendency to go overboard on holidays. As you’ve heard me
say write, I subscribe to a “more is more” mentality. But this year for fall, I’m changing my ways. I feel like I’ve done just enough to make our home feel cozy. But I’ve stopped short of making it gaudy and overwhelming. In short, it’s simpler and I like it.
It all began with these pretty pillows from Marshall’s. I needed a little change from our summer look. The vibrant colors spoke to me. They told me to bring them home. What could I do? When pillows speak to you, you ought to listen.
I still kept the gingham patterned pillows from the summer. It’s a little crazy to keep such different patterns together. Totally not me. But, I’m digging it. And those small pillows are perfect for baby propping, an act that is very important in the Woodward household. And navy is sort of becoming my favorite color.
And here’s our mantel. Have I mentioned how much I love having a fireplace mantel? It is THE BEST.
The “W” pumpkin was a gift from our friends Jon and Ann.
I have a little plan for that window between the windows. Don’t worry, I”ll keep you posted. Plan on something before Henry graduates from college.
And did you spot that pretty afghan on the chair from our Junk Bonanza trip? I. Love. It. It’s such a nice fit for our home.
I still have a little I’d like to do this fall for decor, but it’s a far cry from the first year I decorated our home for fall. Which is kind of funny, because many of the elements are the same. I just scaled everything down. I have tubs of fall decor that I’m planning to get rid of soon. No need to keep stuff I don’t need. I’m in the mood for a major purge.
More fall decor tomorrow. I know. You are totally on the edge of your seat.
