A Little of Fall, Y'All

       Like so many of you, I have been itching to add a little fall to my home.  Not quite ready to go all out with pumpkins, mums, and leaves - just adding back in some of the cozy fall tones and textures.

My new living room furniture was delivered last Thursday and I also hung new drapery panels.  They are all in the fall color spectrum that I return to again and again.  I flirted this year with neutralizing which is soooo popular right now and sooooo beautiful.  It just wasn't me.  So I have returned to my decorating roots!

(Oops! You can see the foil I've been using to keep our cats & dog off the furniture off to the left!)

We are installing new floors in the living room as part of an entire first floor remodel in the next month or so, which means I am only going to give you a glimpse of how things are for now. (I'm sneaky like that!)

Thanks for coming along on a little "just before fall" tour!

Wishing you happiness,

  2. I am so bad I feel Like I have poison ivy itchin!~ I do not take a thing out though until September 1st. Thanks for sharing with the party.

  3. I love your new sofa and drapes, but the little plaid lunch box makes me smile!!!! Hugs, Penny

  4. Very pretty. I am so drawn to the fall colors as well. I've managed to get some lighter colors worked in to my decor, but still have deep colors as well.

  5. Morning Jane! I absolutely love that sofa pattern and your curtains (separate or together) You are teasing us big time here!!!lol I am soo glad to see someone using pattern AND color. (I have very similar lampshades in my family room too) I love the combination you are putting together and even though this is just a little peek I can see how cozy this room is going to be! Looking forward to more pics! Have a great Monday - Jeannette

  8. Fall is around the corner for sure! Thank you for sharing your home with us on The "Sunday Stop"!!!

  9. I love the red and gold tones in your home and yes I too am anticipating fall. The drop in temperature and the changing of the leaves is always a nice change. I am your newest follower.

  10. I, like you, love the richer tones. Most of my house is in reds and golds. They are perfect to decorate with for almost any holiday.
    Looking forward to bringing out the Fall things in a few wks.
    Love your curtains and Fall vignettes.
