Illuminated Fall Decor
This fall I decided to use my older traditional fall decor, add some teal for contrast and lights to brighten the longer evenings. Our days are already noticeably shorter and the lights add a different ambiance.
I have always believed that I can have anything I want, but Not everything I want. The decor in this post is either from my stash or inexpensive diy projects. This allows me to purchase several fall colored light sets. The new light sets that come in different shapes and colours are so easy to use and added a nice update from previous years.
The front foyer has some candles that I have not lit yet. The Welcome sign is a diy project and the large arrangement is various dried florals and real branches for height.
The kitchen has some very simple fall decor in it, but nothing illuminated. The dining room has a centerpiece that lights.
The focal point of the family room is always the fireplace. In the picture there are no lights turned on anywhere in the family room or kitchen. The golden huge of the lights is very cozy. The little lit pumpkin on the mantel is four or five years old, its fun because when turned off the pumpkin is a teal colour.
The decor on the coffee table is the most brilliantly lit. There is also a few lights woven around the basket that sits nearby.
Candles are beautiful especially when scented, but although more expensive I prefer the lights now. They don’t melt, or get hot and I find I turn them on more then the candles.
In addition to my rather short post I have two other home tours from my blogging friends, Lynne at My Family Thymne and Jeannee from Centsably Creative.
This centerpiece from Jeannee with the tall central feathers is a beautiful example of how to add height and elegance to a floral arrangement.
This piece of art from Lynne is the type of artwork that makes a house a home. It conveys her feelings about gathering and sharing. So timeless and beautiful for any time of year.
What type of theme are you using for fall decor this year, traditional, farmhouse, whites, metallics, or jewel colours?
Do you have a favorite style or are you like me and love them all?
