I have lived in my house for a little over 6 years and not changed much of anything up in the way of decor. I’ve done little things here and there but nothing too big. Last summer I finally got tired of all of my big furniture and so I sold it all and I have been slowly replacing those things and redecorating. I know, I know, I have clearly lost my mind.
I am still planning on putting my house on the market at the beginning of the year so everything I am replacing right now I am trying to also imagine it being in a smaller space. If that makes any sense…LOL!!
I sold my couch, love seat, roll top desk, desk chair and media center. I also sold all of my bedroom furniture and upgraded my mattresses to king size. I have already replaced my couch and media center and am about to purchase the matching chair and ottoman and I can’t wait to see what those look like in my living room! I am still shopping for bedroom furniture and looking for a few accent pieces, I haven’t found anything I’m just in love with and I refuse to buy something just because it’s at a good price. I want to absolutely love it. It’s a chore I tell you!!
One thing I found that I absolutely loved was a bookshelf for my living room. With the absence of the large roll top desk and media center I needed something to decorate but I didn’t want anything huge and bulky. I looked at regular bookshelves but they seemed all closed off and dark (I’m doing my living room in espresso pieces, not the typical blogger all white everything) and I love the cutouts on the side of this one, it really opens it up and the living room still feels big and bright!
So after purchasing this fabulous bookshelf and putting it together I finally busted out all of my pumpkins and Halloween decor!! I was like a little kid at Christmas time going through all of my fall decor tubs!! HA!! But really though…it was a little bit ridiculous.
After getting it all arranged just so, and making an emergency Target run for more “orange” things I finally have it all put together and I can’t wait to show it to you!! It’s finally looking like Halloween at my house!!!
(All pumpkins came from the dollar spot at Target over the past couple of years so I don’t have links to each different kind. Sorry!)
Isn’t it super cute?! I am obsessed!!!! I love all of my pumpkins, my wooden signs and especially my Harry Potter books!! I am such a die hard Harry Potter fan it’s kind of ridiculous. HA!!!
One of my favorite pieces on my bookshelf is this Happy Everything Platter. I got the mini version a couple of years ago and have attachments for all of the seasons. I love this neutral polka dot platter but they recently came out with a black and white striped version that I think I need to replace mine with (I am also black and white stripe obsessed). One day…
I got these little wooden signs at my hospital’s gift shop when they were having a 75% off sale!! I love them and they crack me up at the same time…gimme all the booze! HA!
And you know I had to break out my Wicked books to decorate with, right? That really is a good series if you haven’t read them yet! I love the musical but of course the books were better!! And that candle…ya’ll. That is my favorite candle scent of all time and I may or may not have four of them stashed in my pantry because the scent finally came back this year after 4 years of being “discontinued”. Thank you Bath and Body Works!!
I snagged those little burlap pumpkins at Target (the land of cheap but cute pumpkins) and my friend Gina from Desperately Seeking Gina made me the pumpkin hoops!! They are my FAVE and she even has an awesome tutorial for them on her blog!!
I also did a little fall/pumpkin decorating on my end tables in my living room and thought i would throw those on here too…I snagged the Hello Fall sign at Kirkland’s (one of my absolute favorite home decor stores ever) and then three of my favorite books! I decorate a lot with books because they add good height and they are actually books I have read, not just fancy coffee table books that no one ever reads. They also make good conversation starters!
And then my other end table has my newest favorite home decor…the ever so controversial cotton!! If you don’t know what I’m talking about Google Hobby Lobby + cotton and see what pops up. People. Ugh. And also, another favorite book series!
So that, my friends, is all of the fall/Halloween decor going on in my living room. I promise that as soon as I find a cute rug, some throw pillows I actually like and get my chair in I will do a full living room post! I am really excited about it!!
Have you decorated for fall yet??
