Inspired and Motivated

So even though I was able to get my front porch decorated for fall quite easily this year, (click here if you missed it), I am a bit slow getting anything done inside. However, when I saw Kathy’s,  at A Delightsome Life, fall decor I felt inspired and motivated for fall decorating of my own!

Kathy’s style appeals to me. It is subtle and yet eye catching. I love the pillow on the white chair and the side table with the bee.

She has a lot of neutrals and yet enough color that it isn’t boring. Those blue floral pillows behind the distressed basket makes a lovely vignette.

And the lavender with the white pumpkins is just adorable together in this basket.

So after my virtual tour of Kathy’s fall home, I decided to do some fall decorating of my own. I wanted to try to get by with what I already have and not  spend any extra money right now. We have a trip planned for next week and I want to say ALL my money for some really good eats up in New England!

I did buy these gorgeous blue pumpkins from Big Lots. They also had a wreath and a few other things I’d love to have, but I resisted.

I replaced all my burgandy hydrangeas with the blue ones that I had found at Dollar General when I bought my front porch flowers. They look really good with my existing green ones. The mercury glass pumpkins are from last year.

I used the same wreath as last year, however, I would like to add some blue to it when I find something that will work.

Again, I bought these flowers when I purchased the blue flowers for my porch. They look a bit purple in this picture, but in reality they are more blue.

These are more of the same flowers as the picture above. I have them scattered all around my living room.

Adding a few darker blue hydrangeas to this bucket bouquet of pink and blue help to make it a bit more fall-ish.

Using what I have, I am pleased with the update in seasons in my living room. Maybe I’ll find some sales and can add a bit more at a later date.

Thanks Kathy for the inspiration!

      I have seen people spray painting their pumpkins this year. I saw some really beautiful purple ones that I had to show to Ginger. And I plan to paint a few of my own whenever …. haha I can’t wait to see your decor. And I have to tell you that I sure enjoy seeing your comments when I log on after a new post is up. Thanks. 🙂

      Sandra, these are the ONLY ones our store had. I have checked back several times to see if they restocked, but nope! On to Christmas! Thanks for visiting with me. 🙂

    What a lovely unexpected fall color palette. I saw some mint green metallic pumpkins at Marshalls that were so elegant. May need to go back for them. My autumn decor is more homey than elegant, though.

      I am a blue kinda girl although I’d never thought of doing it for fall until I saw these pumpkins! I love homey too. Thats my problem…. I like ALL styles! 🙂
