Fall-ing behind

I'm admittedly behind on my seasonal decor update due to a week away in September and well...just everyday life! But I did manage to sprinkle a little fall festiveness around the house this week even though it was feeling more like summer with temperatures in the 70's.

Here's the extent of my outdoor fall decor:

A wreath on our basement door...

A mum in some stacked copper pumpkins...

...and that's about it!
Oh, and our porch and kitchen door still have the same thing going on.
Both looks are fall-ish enough for me.

Indoors, I've managed to do a little here and there:

Some acorns on the kitchen built-ins and white pumpkins on the kitchen table...

 This wooden cornucopia (old from Pottery Barn) filled with more pumpkins, acorns, gourds, etc. in the dining room...

One faux white pumpkin in the foyer...

And lastly, a new look for the living room mantel...

...which I'm not so sure about.
Is it too busy? Too predictable?
It's practically the complete opposite of my last "less is more" mantel look.

It's one of those things where I can't tell if I like it or hate it.
So, I'm going to leave it like this for now and see how I feel about it in a day or two.

Oh, and some new pillows and a throw on the couch were loooong overdue. 
I picked up these ones (currently on sale) from West Elm:

I'd like to do a little bit more around here for the fall and will share once it's done.
In the meantime, our new couch we bought back in August for our family room is coming tomorrow and
I. Can. Not. Wait!

Have a great night :)

  1. While I'm surprised you used orange pumpkins for your mantel, I'm loving the pop of color! Looks great!

    1. Haha I know, I'm branching out with my colors I guess!
