Happy Thursday, lovelies! It’s supposed to be in the 80’s here again today, but I’m ignoring the heat and welcoming the comforts of fall into my home. Since I invested time and money into decorating my front door, I needed to decorate the space right inside the front door. I’ve inherited some nice pieces of furniture built by my grandfather, and one of them sits in my entryway. It just needed a little fall inspiration. Here it is!
I tried to pull in the colors of my living room (navy and red with yellow and turquoise accents) so that my vignette wouldn’t scream orange. I found the wreath at an antique mall in Tennessee, and I love the little bits of yellow you see there. I’ve had the candlesticks for years. My mom bought them for me at TJ Maxx, and I have enjoyed them so much! I found the paper pumpkins in the floral department in my grocery store for less than $3.
Those shutters are over 100 years old. I got a big pile of them from a house that was being remodeled, and have shared my treasures with a couple people. It’s amazing what you can do with old shutters!
Underneath the table, I have a large amber vase filled with fall leaves. I found the monogrammed pumpkin at Hobby Lobby post-season a couple years ago, 70% off! I bought two and used the other one in my outdoor decor this year. Old books are always great to use in decorating. Sometimes I turn them around backwards, like I did here, to show the texture of the pages.
Are you still working on your fall decor? I’ll probably be adding and changing mine well into October!
