Let's Go Shopping For Fall Decor!!


Are you ready for some great Fall finds that are on the softer side of Fall?

In my search for the SOFTER SIDE I ran across a few items that I feel would work well in those homes  that don’t use the typical autumnal colors of  oranges, russets and browns. 

However some of my finds would work equally well in those home’s too.

When I think of Fall weather I start thinking of ways to cozy-up my home, so naturally that involves warm blankets and textures.

I went to Etsy and found some wonderful older pieces that are begging to be curled up in by the fire……

Vintage Fairbo Wool Lap Blanket by Fairbault by AnytimeVintage, $42.00

 Soft and Neutral is the name of the game here!!
Vintage Wool Throw Early's of Witney English Plush by ohthisnose, $75.00

Another beautiful neutral throw, this one is from England…….

This beige and cream throw is another good contender for a soft neutral for just about any room.

If we are laying on the sofa cuddled up in our new throw we might just need a new pillow for our head as well……

Pure Wool Tweed / Herringbone / Blue Check Cushion / by maisiev, £33.00
Soft creams and beiges with a touch of blue in this window pane plaid. Extra texture is brought in by the addition of the wood buttons.

Believe it or not the wood buttons are a perfect segue to the next item to bring into your Fall room...


Vintage 194050s  Lidded PINE BOX with by CarliBeardsleyStudio, $15.00

For those of you that want a custom look or a box made of exotic woods, be sure and check out my friend John who is a wonderful artisan, and makes gorgeous boxes. His boxes are pieces you will want to pass down as a family piece…..

Figured Maple Keepsake Box

Make a list of items that evoke FALL to you, and take a look on Etsy for some vintage finds that will add character to your home.

I also have several Fall boards on Pinterest if you would like further inspiration….
