Our 2013 Autumn Entry


Each year I try to switch up the elements of my entryway decorations for the fall. I love this time of the year with its bevy of beautiful and comforting colors, and I want them to welcome me as well as all who visit our humble home. 



For the last two seasons I paired my freebie buffet from my parents' house which I painted and distressed somewhat, with a one dollar yard sale mirror and fabulous castoff lamp.


Then this past July, on our way back from Lake Heron and Niagara Falls, I purchased this pretty faux arrangement in a beautiful rusted out pot for only $20 at a flower shop in Lake Skaneateles New York.


Also newly added is one of my favorite pictures of Michael and Grace from when they were just toddlers. The photo is placed in a weathered blue wood frame which really pulls the blue from the lamp's shade into the vignette. 



Last year I painted a yard sale chair in Annie Sloan's Antibes green chalk paint which I had won at the Haven conference that June. A pretty corn husk pumpkin sits inside a grapevine wreath adorned with faux bittersweet. Such a perfect pop of color in the entry don't you think?






I love the simple mix of styles used to create this year's vignette, like the weathered plant pot and Home Good's chippy blue frame, both paired with a more contemporary lamp base with a big bold shade. 


As you well know a home is always a work in progress, and most of us are looking to create a comfortable yet stylish living space on a pretty tight budget. This challenge, at least for me anyway, is what makes decorating so much dang fun!

  1. So what you're saying is that I should take the antique Uncle Sam bank off the table in my entryway that has been there since Flag Day? Okay... I'll break out the pumpkins!
