Fall Decor in the Living Room

I'd like to move on to the last leg of our Fall home tour.  
Today, I'm going to share the remainder of my living room.

In August, we purchased new couches for our living room.  
(It was torture waiting for them to be made, let me tell you!)
New couches lead to a new coffee table, 
which lead to new curtains, 
which lead to new end tables,
which lead to a new area rug....
oh you know how it goes.  

I wanted to show you this room once it was completed, 
but by the time I had most of the players in place, 
it was time to decorate for Fall.  

Here's my new living room all set for Fall:

I don't know if you remember what it looked like before, 
but you can take a peek here.

I can't even begin to tell you how I love this new look!
All the major pieces are neutral, so I can add whatever accent
colors I want without worry.

I sewed 3 out of 4 of the pillows you see here.
I used the same fabric to make the banner for the mantel.

I'm sure you've seen my gallery wall decor before,
but I decided to give it the Fall treatment.

I had crafted the rag wreath earlier in the year for my dining room.
It was all in neutral shades so it was a cinch to add some orange fabric
scraps to it and turn it into a Fall rag wreath.

I rarely share the shelves of the entertainment center 
because in all honesty, I'm just not confident in my 
shelf decorating skills.   
I was somewhat happy with these, so here you go.

This room did not have a coffee table previously,
I had leather ottomans instead.
This time around, I wanted a coffee table.
I had to order it and  wait several weeks (there's that torture again!),
but I was so happy when it finally arrived.

Here's another view where you can see a bit of the fire place as well.

I hope you enjoyed my Fall tour.

Now that that's done, I guess it's getting about time
 to decorate for Halloween, isn't it?

I really like your new room. This replaced the brown sofas, right. I love your sitting room the way it is. I really like those chairs. But your new room is so different without the brown. It sure seems like we all head to the brown, but light is better.
I like your wall arrangement and those pillows. I think you do a great job of decorating.

Your living room looks beautiful Gina,the new furniture looks great. Why does furniture take so dang long? I bought one chair, it took three months to arrive! Your fall decor is perfect and you did a great job on the shelves too.

Gina, I love your new things- and you have it put together so wonderfully.

Well done, just awesome. Bet you are super excited! Isn't getting freshened up just a great feeling?

NanaDiana said...

Your new furniture is just beautiful, Gina...and your shelves look terrific. You have GREAT taste and shouldn't worry about your ability to stage your shelves. You always do a nice job of everything. Just think of them as mini-mantles!

Love the whole thing, Gina. Happy Fall- xo Diana

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Very nice Gina, the lighter colors are so neat looking with those pillows you made! Hard to believe fall is really here, they say we are going to have a winter like last year so I'm glad I lightend up too!

Debbie said...

I love this!! Really, if I ever get around to posting my living room all finished (or sort of finished), you will be able to tell just how much I LOVE yours because it is exactly my taste and the look I was going for. It's lovely, and fall is the perfect time to show it off.

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Oh girl...I can't believe you doubt your abilities ... you got skills! I love your new furniture. A great neutral color. Love the chicken wire, the vignette on the coffee table and I love how you updated the wreath with the orange. Everything is so pretty Gina! Have a great week friend!

Melinda said...

Wow, looks great.
Could you come by and do mine--cause I haven't found the time yet.

What a beautiful, cozy room! I just love everything, Gina. And I know how a room snowballs but it's so worth it. I love having neutrals, too, you can change things around as much as you'd like. I really like your gallery wall and the rag wreath is so cool...such a neat idea to add the orange, it looks perfect and heck, you can add red at Christmas!!

Thank you for your kind comments today. I have to remember your "painting cabinets at 2 in the morning" remedy for my anxiety!! Maybe a little laundry and vacuuming in the middle of the night? Ha!

Gina, you may have had to wait for your sofas but I'm sure the wait was worth it. They look gorgeous along with your pretty coffee table and your pillows. I took a peek at you fall mantel and I love how the banner ties in with your pillow fabric. Hope all is well with you. It's been so long since I've visited!!!

bj said...

For some reason, Gina, several of your comments came thru to MY email...what the heck...??

Donna Sinclair said...

Wow, what a difference Gina....fabulous change by lightening it up. Don't you love that feeling of....okay, why did I wait so long for this?

Diane Lynn said...
