Fall Nesting 2011

Thursday, September 22, 2011

With two hours to spare before the linky party closes, I’m joining the Fall Nesting Party The Inspired Room is hosting!  I love the change in seasons, especially since we live in a place where the seasons actually change.  Four whole times a year!  In our house, fall means chili and football, homemade bread, and leather boots.  And I change my décor out like I change my wardrobe.

Keeping all of the big ticket items neutral {like walls and sofas and rugs} allows me to swap out the accessories for a new look.  And while this sounds expensive, if you just make or buy a few things each year, every season gets cheaper and cheaper.  This I made four new pillows covers {cost = $30} and a wreath for the front door {cost = $25}—everything else is old news.

I changed out the blue curtains for the brown and put away the fish for the pumpkins…


The coffee filter wreath never went away but I finally hung the window frame {uh-huh—the one just sittin’ on the curb}, swapped a few candles for the divine, spicey fall ones {bird silhouette from last year}, and made this wreath that’s been finding it’s way through the halls of Pinterest {April also made one and did a whole tutorial, so just go there for the deets!}

I made a few pillows, set out a few fake pumpkins, and swapped out the blue shutter for another one I rescued from the streets and painted kelly green.

And this might be my favorite!  I just printed this cute little guy from Graphics Fairy, filled in the blank spaces on Photoshop, and printed him out orange.  I might never put him away…

And that’s pretty much it!  At this point, almost 230 people have posted fantastic, creative fall décor ideas and recipes over at The Inspired Room.  Head over there for some inspiration, have fun, and keep it cheap!

Happy Fall Y’all!
