Today marks the day as the first official day of Fall. Welcome to my Blog!! If your new around here, we are a family of 5 with 1 fur-baby that lives in a small home of approximately 1200 square feet. Given that our home is pretty small, I typically don’t do a large amount of seasonal decorating. I wanted to share with everyone that making small and simple changes can have a large impact in the overall feel of your home.
We’ve recently made some changes to our living room, and I will certainly share all of those changes in a full blog post sometime soon. The living room changes aren’t fully complete just yet, but I am still going to love my home at each stage.
One of the most recent changes that we made in our living was by adding an accent chair. I originally set a budget of 100$$ to obtain a sturdy accent chair to add to our living room. After looking for quite some time, I wasn’t able to find a new one that I loved within our budget. That’s when I decided to turn to a second-hand piece of furniture. I spotted this wingback chair on the Facebook market place for 30$. I checked it out, and it was sturdy and comfortable. I simply over-looked it’s outdated façade because I already was planning to make a slip-cover for this chair. I also was able to snag the amount of fabric for this chair for 17$. This was my first attempt at ever making a slip-cover for a chair, and so far I really like it. It’s certainly not perfect but it’s better than what was previously there.
The main thing we changed in the living room was changing around some of the throw blankets and throw pillows. Adding multiple layers of blankets and pillows in various patterns and textures can really help increase the cozy feeling in your living room. I also added a few neutral color pumpkins and some nature inspired artwork to our wood shelves. (If you’re interested in any of these pillow covers, you can purchase them— here)
We recently mounted our TV above the fireplace. I’ve been wanting to paint the brick around the fireplace, however, I haven’t quite pulled the trigger on that project just yet. The fireplace mantel received some greenery, which helps conceal our TV cords. Obtaining a designated TV cord cover has been one of those on the “to-do list”.
Things in the kitchen didn’t change too much. I recently bought a cake stand that I’ve left sitting out to display items and food. For Fall I decided to add a few pumpkins to it. I also added some faux flowers and drew a few things that remind me of fall on our chalkboard wall.
We recently changed the removable wallpaper in our small entryway that certainly had a big impact for contrast that certainly screams “Fall and Winter”. Here is our typical view from our kitchen. I did a full blog post on the removable wallpaper, and if your interested you can learn more about that—- here.
Our dining room connects both the kitchen and living room. Just like the living room and kitchen, I want to keep things simple. Layering in some faux greenery and some pumpkins keep things simple, yet give off a cozy Fall-vibe.
I love eating dinner by candle light.
