I am ready to get the seasonal updating with fall decorating favorites ball rolling. Postings of home decor and fall decorating ideas from several hundred of my blogging and social media friends confirm fall fever is going around.
Let the brisk mornings-cinnamon flavored-pumpkin decorating-colors on parade-sitting on the front porch-spice tea sipping-football tailgating afternoons-sweater wearing-sock feet snuggling with the one you love-crisp evenings spent in front of a fire pit season commence. While we’re on the subject, let me ask you this. Fall or Autumn. What say you?
Now to the seasonal updating with fall decorating favorites portion of our show…
I’ve been looking “foyer” to this seasonal update for quite some time. The wallpaper I selected for my Mother’s Day gift (Mother’s Day 2015) is finally up where it belongs. Getting this wallpaper project to completion and fall coming to Louisiana have something in common. It seems to take forever. I learned a long time ago that patience is a virtue in the pretty on a penny process. Count the looking “foyer” to fall wallpaper project and estate sale chandelier makeover as the first seasonal updates of the fall 2016 season.

Cotton bolls placed in and around collected sea shells is a match made in memories from my childhood heaven. Cotton fields remain an integral part of the fall harvest scenery in our area. A farmer friend with acres and acres of cotton fields generously supplies me with several bundles of cotton stalks for my fall decorating needs. Another good friend supplies me with the dried hydrangeas and eucalyptus bunches perfect for fall arrangements in another fall decor essential, the dough bowl. Good friends bearing gifts are rewarded with the house special, a fresh apple nut cake.
An accidental placement of this antique chair in the foyer and the light of a late afternoon produce an effect worth keeping.
Maybe it’s the lighting, the off-center placement, the new wallpaper or the combination of all three, but I love how it all works together. Ambience plays a significant role in interior design and decorating, and light is at the control.
I’ve noticed the change in the color of the afternoon sun. It is white bright, full of nuance as it streams through the window panes and French doors to shadow dance with colors, patterns and textures.
Simple. Elegant. Fall.
