I have to admit – when we moved into our new house a few months ago, we made very quick progress on making it feel like our home. Everything was unpacked and put away in a matter of hours, a few rooms painted, and some decor arranged. However, then things just came to a halt and we got comfortable. With the change in season and the holidays right around the corner, I came up with a list of small improvements and decor I want to get updated, and we’re hard at work again. This week I picked up a few items to decorate my formerly-bare fireplace. Autumn is my favorite season for colors, and since our living room already has a red and gold theme, the rich jewel tones of fall work so nicely. (FYI, wall color is Benjamin Moore Maple Sugar and the fireplace accent is Vintage Wine.)
A close up of the items on the end. I love the colors. I picked up the pillar candles at Home Goods. I knew I wanted purple pillars since they’d be beautiful with both the orange and the red holders I picked out from Pier 1, and they would stand out against the wall color. Bonus that they are cranberry scented, adding to my autumn theme.
Just above the fireplace I attached a glittery fall garland, and from that I hung some Halloween ornaments from Pier 1.
Here are some close-ups of the ornaments. So cute! I love Halloween, but didn’t want to go overboard with decorations just yet, but I thought these were perfect.
