Mixing Up My Pillows For A Fall Look!


It is that time of year again!! Time to change out the summer look for a winter look in my great room.

I love to change things up a bit for the seasons. It is a way to add a bit of a different look without a major re-do. Pillows are where I make my changes to begin with.

Let me show you a few pillows in my collection....

 In the Spring I add a touch of grass green with my blue and white.

This is what you will find in my room for the summer months. Lots of light, cool blues with just a touch of black.

 In the winter I add heavier textural linens and embroidered fabrics.

Last year for Christmas it was all about black and white and Kelly green.

As you can see I have several pillows that I can coordinate into different combinations.

This year for the Fall/Winter months, instead of the all heavy linen, blue and black combinations I decided I wanted to add Kelly green to the mix.

 So what is a girl to do?

She starts playing with different combinations to see what will work. So I took a bit of Spring, Christmas and winter and made this years Fall/ Winter mix.

After the pillows were in place then I added one of my favorite pieces.......

A vintage Kelly green Chinoiserie pedestal.

This year it is joined with my new floor lamp so I switched it's position up a bit.

 A dear friend of mine brought me this beautiful fern and a cobalt pot and it fits in perfectly.

One day the sun was shining in on the plant and that is what made me want to add the Kelly green for my winter look this year.


 2016's FALL/WINTER LOOK.....

This years look with the addition of Kelly green.

I also did a few color spots of more blues and greens around the room.......

Simple touch!

  Little details.

Since our home is an open concept home I added a touch of Kelly green in my kitchen with the addition of a vintage bowl.....

Nothing spectacular, just a simple touch here and there. I am sure I will be tweaking along the way. After all that is what is fun about decorating, tweaking until it feels, JUST RIGHT!!

Now all I need are my white and green pumpkins and maybe some white mums and I am set for Fall. 

The mornings are cooler and even in the evenings we can feel a crispness in the air.

You can see from this post it doesn't take a lot of new things to make simple changes, just a touch here and there!!

HI Carol Jane, Thank you for asking. We are in a brand new home now, we moved last October, but you can see our new home if you put the word New Home in the search box, the post will come up for you. If you want to see our previous home you can put in House tour and it should come up.

You always put together pretty combos. My pillow colors have remained the same the last few years but I change the texture of the fabrics. For linen to heavy upholstery-grade fabrics.

Can you give me any suggestions of where to look for the green pumpkins? I find the white ones, but never seem to run into the green ones. Any help would be appreciated. I love your fall/winter look!

Marty, I live in California and they always seem to have them here, so I would not know where to tell you to find them. I know sometimes florist or good nurseries will carry them as well as farm stands. Good luck.
