Fall Decorating

I break from my master bedroom redesign to do a little fall decorating.  I love fall colors and decor but because the summer-like weather lasts until October (it was 85 last week!) and then I blink and it is Christmas so I don't do a ton of fall decorating.  What you see in this picture is basically it and is good until Thanksgiving.

I bought a bag of mini-pumpkins and gourds and let the boys each pick out a pumpkin (including one for the dog).  We use our fireplace frequently in the winter but it is still too warm so far now I decorate the inside of the fireplace.  Not only do I like the way it looks but it discourages little boys from playing the "throw the pumpkin at your brother" game.

I added some fall garland on the mantle...

...and wrapped the sconce candles with a wire strand of berries.

Happy fall!


  1. Meg, this looks so good and I love it in the shell. This gives me a big smile.

  2. Are the sconces from Pottery Barn? I was looking at them online and thinking about them for a hallway. Love them over your fireplace! Great fall decor!

    1. Thank you! They are - You won't be disappointed!
