A little Fall color for a change...

Small changes in the Living Room have brought in the Fall color.
This is such a traditional and formal room that I try to just "tweak" it,
more than completely "re-doing" it.

My Pottery Barn urn that held large conch and nautilus shells on the coffee table
during the summer, has found a fat Cinderella pumpkin for the season.

Fall leaves, potpourri, and stone pumpkins now sit on my French inspired tray.

Along with a Lefton Chipmunk, some silver and vintage rhinestone jewelry.

My mantle doesn't see a lot of change, just Autumn bouquets
and a bittersweet wreath to replace the Summer colors.

My mantle isn't very deep, so when I happened to find these "half urns" at Goodwill last Spring I was really excited. They fit perfectly and then I just change out the florals for the season.

A recent addition to the Living Room is a wonderful handpainted piece of art by Dore, from Burlap Luxe. If you haven't met Dore, please go visit her gorgeous blog. She's a beautiful girl, inside and out, and has recently been shown in Romantic Homes Magazine. While you're there visit her Etsy Store, filled with other pieces of her art.

I'm linking with Marty today for Table Top Tuesday

And Kathleen from Faded Charm for White Wednesday.

Please go by and visit the other beautiful blogs for these parties.

Hope you're having a great week,
I'm trying to get back to the routine, after last week.
It was wonderful getting to see family all together,
even though it was a sad occasion.

hugs and blessings to you all,


  1. Your home looks lush and beautiful, Debra! You always decorate with such style.

  21. Hi Debra,
    Don't tell anybody but I'm at my Sisters for a little sister time and a blog break. I did sneak in and take a few minutes to look at your blog and I'm so glad that I did! Your fall decor isn absolutely stunning! Here in the mountains of WV I'm seeing lots of pretty fall colors and decorations.
    I'll be back to posting in a few days.


  22. Now I remember where I left my jewelry ~ hee hee!! Looks so lovely Debra!

  23. What a beautiful living room! Gorgeous -- I can see why you don't need to do much from season to season -- it's lovely just as it is.

    The big urn with the pumpkin -- adorable! And I love the half-urns on the mantelpiece. Perfect for MY narrow mantel, too -- so if you ever get tired of them, sling them over my way.

    Beautiful! And just "enough."

  24. Love your touches of Fall! I really like the touches of bling you added to the table vignettes. So Pretty!
    Enjoy your week.

  25. Such beautiful Fall decor, Debbie! Love it.

    Big TX Hugs,

  26. Ohhhhh Debra, looks so nice! Love the Cinderella Pumpking on the Urn (those Cinderella Pumpkins always remind me of the dear Deb Bock of Garden Party,,,she introduced me to them!)

    Love the Urns you found! Fabulous! And the Sanctuary sign is wonderful!

    Hope you are having a good week, busy getting ready for the Ruffles and Rust Show!

    Hugs and Love,

  27. Debra, You have a beautiful living room with all of the fall colors. It looks so inviting. I can just imagine what it will look like at Christmas time with the fireplace lit. I always enjoy reading your blog and seeing the wonderful pictures that you share with us. Take care Your Missouri Friend.

  28. Your home is beautiful, Debra, and your fall decor makes it even more cozy! I love the dried flowers on your mantel and the half urns...what a lucky find! They look perfect!


  29. Your fall decor is so beautiful. I love how elegant it looks.

  30. I think all of us in this business are "tweakers" in a non-drug related way! We just can't let our stuff just "be"! I know I'm exactly that way, then go to my store and do the same thing. I LOVE all your photos, as always.

    Take care, Sue

  31. Debra everything is just beautiful, love your Fall decor!!! hugs~~~ Daphne

  32. Fabulous, Debra!
    I love your pumpkin and urn, and that sign from Dore is just perfect!

  35. Hi Debra - This is my first visit to your blog and your house is just UH-MAZING! Love all your fall decor, so warm and inviting.

  36. Your room looks beautiful. I love the touches of fall Debra!

  37. Debra, your decorating style is fantastic! I can't help but pore over each gorgeous photo.


  38. Debra,
    Your home looks so warm & wonderful!! And I LOVE your BEAMS!!!!! Wowee girl!!


  39. Your mantle is stunning! Like out of a magazine! I love to change out my little accessories for fall, too, that pumpkin is darling! Love your little world, so happy to be your newest follower!

  40. Hi Debra, This is such a pretty room and I love the tall fireplace and the beams. I also have a narrow mantle and it makes it hard to decorate. The half urns are fabulous and the pumpkins in the urns are so cute.
    Hugs, Sherry

  41. Love your urns with the pumpkins...I do that too and I always think it looks so good showing them off like that. Your vaulted ceiling and the beams are great...you lucky girl! I have become one of your followers.

  42. I had to do a double take on those half urns....Goodwill boy we must have a different Goodwill here because I would never find anything that nice in our local store.
    Good for you!

    Love all that you've done btw,

  43. Your living room is gorgeous. I really had to take my time and explore all of the wonderful eye candy. Such beautiful autumn vignettes!

  44. Debra, that painting is perfect...your home is a sanctuary!
    Love the way the ceiling is reflected in the mirror. UM...can you find me a pair of those half urns at the GoodWill...I love them! All I ever find is baby clothes and not cute ones even.
    P.S. Being with family is reaffirming...especially when you need them the most.

  45. Somehow, I just KNEW
    that you had beamed
    ceilings! And I love
    Dore, too; that sign
    was meant for you!
