I am so excited that it is officially fall! Not that the weather is agreeing with me but in my head it is sweater weather. Yeah I wish. No matter, the inside of my house is officially in an Autumn state of mind! We still don’t have decent pumpkins so until then I am keeping things very minimal. If you don’t know already we are moving to Japan next year so I have already been selling stuff off.
Recently the entryway bench that was there has been sold so it was time for a refresh. I had it all mostly planned out before we even sold the bench (we will be selling the house so I have to make sure I can stage the house). I planned on moving the theater seats from the back entry to the front entry. I however did not measure first! With all three seats it was a bit to long to fit the space. Enter panic mode! Now what do I do!? Lucky for me it wasn’t too difficult to unhook one of the seats and make it into two. Of course I like it better with three but for now we are only using two to fit the space and storing the third in the garage. This is what I came up with.
On the wall I added the hooks that were by the back door to hang coats, scarves, and other things on. I moved the theater seats to one side and the hooks to the opposite side to make room to hang longer items. Above the hooks I added the “hello” cut out I got from Hobby Lobby. In the middle I hung my favorite sign from Down Grace Lane with one of my favorite house quotes from Lord of The Rings. There was a bit of an empty area to the left of the sign so I came up with the idea of hanging one of the corbels I had. On the bottom I screwed in two hooks so I could hang more scarves on the wall. It adds a fun vintage vibe.
The star of the show of course is these vintage theater seats that I am still obsessed with. I took off the end piece as I said and kept the two that say “usher” on them (which is one of my favorite things about these particular seats). The rug was a find from TJ Maxx. I want to say it was only around $15. I added a couple of pillows to the seat to soften it a bit and add a fall vibe. The autumn pillow is from Parris Chic Boutique (I love their pillows!) and the grey linen pillow was bought on our Europe trip in Belgium.
I definitely didn’t overdue it with fall decor. For now there is no pumpkins or anything like that. I just added some subtle touches like the plaid blanket hung up and the autumn pillow to give you the small touch of the season without going over the top. You really don’t need a lot of stuff to decorate for the seasons. I usually go crazy but this year with our upcoming move I am trying my hardest to keep things a bit more subtle. I hope you enjoyed this little entry tour and my touches of fall! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
