IT'S A COLORFUL LIFE FALL TOUR 2020- PART 2: ENTRY AND LIVING ROOM


Hello everyone!  I'm so excited to welcome you today as we kick off the It's a Colorful Life Fall 2020 Home Tours!  Jewel of Jeweled Interiors and I are always so excited to organize this tour, we have an amazing group of color-loving bloggers lined up to share their Fall tours with you for the next few days.  I know you'll soak up every bit!  Today I'll be sharing my Entry and Living Room with you, all cozied up for Fall.   (*This post contains affiliate links, including Amazon.

Last year I used super colorful Fall decorations to go along with the rest of my house, but this year I wanted to tone it down a bit (believe it or not!) and stick with a touch more neutral Fall decor.  There's still plenty of color on everything else in my house, though!  I'm not going to do a lot of talking today, just let you take your time and enjoy the photos.  Drop a question in the comments if there's anything I can help you with! 





I wanted to concentrate on using more natural elements this year. Heirloom pumpkins, pheasant feathers,  and dried flowers were just the ticket for the look I wanted.

Our home has a fairly open floor plan in the main living areas.  The Entry opens right into our Living Room, so let's tour there next.  As I said, plenty of color around the room so I kept the Fall decor more muted and simple this year.  If you saw my Summer tour, you might notice that I actually haven't switched out any of the pillows since then except for adding in the leopard.  I liked this mix so much I thought it still worked beautifully for Fall.  


So if you're familiar with my home, something new might have caught your eye!  When a friend with a killer sense of style texts you and says "I just want to get rid of this coffee table", you drop what you're doing and drive a ways to go get it!  I've kept an eye out for a glass and scalloped brass top table like this for years, and she knew I loved this style.  It was incredibly kind of her to offer it to me and I hope she knows I'll treasure it and take good care of it!  (If you loved my brass trunk coffee table don't worry... I do to... it got relocated to another room and isn't going anywhere!)

The trio of brass candlesticks are a recent estate sale purchase.  An elderly couple in our church was paring down the contents of their home and I fell in love with these.  They will always be a sweet reminder of the precious lady I bought them from... I'll never forget her welcoming us with a pan of brownies when we had just started at our current church 17 years ago (my husband is a minister).

I've been playing lots of musical furniture around here!  You might also notice that I slightly rearranged the furniture in the living room by swapping the pink chairs and the love seat around.  With the dimensions of our room the sofa always has to stay where it is, so this is about the only option I have for rearranging furniture in there.  It's nice to do occasionally for a change! 



If you've followed here for a looooong time, you might remember these DIY fur ottomans I did about 6 years ago.  They've been living in our Study/Bonus Room to prop our feet on in there, but I pulled them back in the Living Room to take the place of the green malachite stools for the season.  



But the green stools aren't going anywhere!  They just found a new home for a while flanking this vintage chest that I picked up out of my neighborhood on trash day.

Acorns- linked so you can see them but I think you'll have to check your local store.  Also spotted similar here.  (I painted mine of course!) 


I've been trimming the limelight hydrangea blooms from my backyard as they begin to fade, they dry so beautifully!  



On the mantel, I gathered some oak branches to put in a pair of blue and white vases, a recent Facebook Marketplace find. A few more pumpkins and some lanterns finish it off, along with a pheasant pelt that my neighbor gave me years ago when he heard I liked pheasant feathers.  The colors in the feathers are just exquisite! 






Even though I tried hard to stick with mostly natural, neutral Fall decorations, I couldn't resist popping in that little green gingham faux pumpkin that I painted last year.  



Can you even decorate for Fall without including some leopard print in the mix?  I think not.  😂



So that's it for today!  In my next post I'll be sharing a little more of my Fall tour with you... the Dining Room, Breakfast Nook, and a few other shots here and there around the house.  Be sure to subscribe to my blog by email so you never miss a post!

    1. Thanks Julie! A calmer palette for Fall felt like a good idea this year... ;)

  4. I have always appreciated your "LOVE" of fun colors and your free use through out your house. Your home always has a "HAPPY" personality. After saying this...I have to say, your slightly toned arrangements in your foyer and mantel are some of my favorites! I agree that the sofa pillows looked great this past summer and surprisingly look quite fall-like now. Great job as always.

  6. The glass and brass coffee table is a real treasure and so perfect in your space. Do you happen to know the brand name? I realize that it is vintage, sought after and hard to come by. Enjoy!

  8. Beautiful. I love the toned down look this year. I have some chairs ready to recover and love your pink. How is the velvet holding up? I have a yellow lab so I am hesitant even though he's not allowed on the furniture. Happy Fall!

    1. It's been holding up perfectly! The cats like to lounge on it often and there have been small stains here and there. I just dab them with a damp cloth and it's been fine!
