You guys its been to long since I have posted on here! There has been so many things happening in my life lately that I just haven’t really had the time or been inspired much. My favorite seasons are coming up so I am finally feeling inspired to decorate for fall! First on the list is my simple fall dining room.
If you follow me on Instagram you know that I was originally going in a certain direction with my decor. Well, then we found out that we got orders to Japan. Yup, Japan. More on that later. For now that totally changed my direction. I was originally going to actually add orange and go a bit darker. However with our new orders I didn’t want to buy anything new this season. I need to start purging so buying wasn’t an option! Since we will be purging (I have already started) I decided to go simple and neutral. I decided to use things I already have.
I recently decided to change our metal chairs out with wood ones. They add so much more worth and character then the metal ones. It didn’t cost much, I poked around thrift stores and flea markets and picked up each chair from $4 – $15 a piece. I am loving the eclectic look. I added a few pillows and a blanket I made to the end chair.
For the centerpiece I kept things simple. A few antlers, pumpkins, marble candlesticks, a copper kettle, and some smaller ironstone pieces complete the look. The table runner is actually a $10 curtain panel from World Market. Simple and neutral…just how I like it!
Above the side table I added my favorite fall sign from Down Grace Lane. On the table itself I again kept it simple. Some extra plates, bowls, mugs, and linen napkins. The mix of candlesticks is something I always love. It just adds a lot of warmth and reminds me of the colder season to come!
There is something about the holiday seasons that just put me in a good mood! I look forward to family time and cooler weather. this is also the last holiday season for us in the states for a few years so I want to enjoy every moment! I also wanted to show you how this little space looks by candle light, one of my favorite things.
So many things will be changing in the coming year but for now I am going to enjoy decorating this little house of ours before we sell the place. I will be sad to sell and to move back to renting but I won’t think about that too much yet. I will enjoy the process of decorating for the Fall season and take in every moment! We will see how quickly I can get the rest of the house decorated with everything going on. I’ll enjoy this little space for now. What do you think of our dining room fall decor? How is your decorating coming along this season? Are you going all out or keeping things simple this year? As always I appreciate all of you who stop by his little blog of mine! It means so much.
