Fall Livingroom

Yes, it’s time to change our rooms for the season isn’t it? I love bringing in the browns, creams and oranges especially with my white Extorp.
I just bought it this past spring/summer so it’s been fun buying different color pillows for it…it’s like having
a new couch each season.

I didn’t buy anything fallish because I figured I had enough, nope I’m wrong, I bought two faux bigger pumpkins from Walmart plus
the two small glitter ones
pictured below.
015
Oh,  I bought the last orange candle that Walmart had too, the short one I found
at GW last year.  There’s my Avon squirrel with the acorns, found him for .50.
016
007
One thing I did do was bring in this end table that I used to have between the two chairs, I was figuring that the sofa didn’t look balanced and
this would do the trick.
 
004
I found the knob on sale at Anthropology.
019
One other project I did was to turn this …
green chair 009
into this!
018
It’s Valspar spray-paint…Peacock Blue. I loved the green for summer and it went so well with the green pillows on the
sofa, plus the green Hydrangeas that I had on the diningroom table. Now it’s fall and soon to be winter and I’m going
with my always favorite/always go back to BLUE. At least for a while anyway!
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.
 
I’ll be joining these parties:

How sweet that little squirrel is with your pretty pumpkins. The white with a little accent of glitter on the small ones is fun!

Everything looks so pretty! Love the owl pillow on your couch. One of these days I'm going to get one of those dang couches!!

Glad to see you spray painted your beautiful blue chair. Yesterday I was out spray painting picture frames. It's so easy and works every time.

Love the fall decor - how simple to tie a burlap ribbon around some books.

I have never had luck with spray paint looking even. I was at a shop the other day and admired a particular shade of a chair. I was surprised when the woman told me it was spray paint.

Your chair looks great.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Rondell, Everything is so pretty and I adore your fall accents! Sorry you couldn't find the pail at Walmart but you can order it on-line and they will ship it to your local store for free.
Hugs,
Sherry

Everything looks very fallish! I love the little squirrel and the BLUE chair! It's gorgeous! I blogged about newly painted chairs today! It must be something about Fall that makes us want to change up colours.
I love the Ektorp sofa, it looks very sweet with the pretty pillows.

Oh I love it all! I had no idea that WalMart carried the faux punkins.

I hope you have a week as beautiful as you are!

Carol said...

I really like that chunky basket you have on your coffee table with the big pumpkin, and I adore the owl pillow I can see in the background -- so fun!

I LOVE your sofa, Rondell!!!!
You lucky girl! Changing the pillows for each season is so cool. Like your little cabinet being used for an end table, too. The whole living room looks saaaweet!! I caught up on your previous posts while I was here. Your house is beautiful girl!
Lovin' it over here!

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Isn't it amazing what a difference a pretty little knob can make? And a new color for your chair! I just have to look at something different every one in a while. And yes! A white sofa is perfect for that.

Amy Marshall said...

Hi Rondell, I saw the sweet comment you left about my mom's fall dining room. I'm so glad you stopped by! I popped over to see what you've been up to and I love all the black and white you've incorporated into your fall decor. Funny, I just bought a white pumpkin tonight and my husband thought I was a little weird but I love it! LOL

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I love the owl pillow and the way you wrapped the books with burlap ribbon. Don't you love spray paint? I'm always changing things up with it. :)

Stacey said...

Gorgeous! Love that owl pillow like the others said.
