Cozy Early Fall Hearth Room

Last week I shared my Late Summer mantel here in the Hearth Room.
So now that the calendar says September,
 I'm ready to bring out the cozy factor for Fall!

Of course that means keeping a Sunflower theme going,
 along with a few light touches of Fall.

When planning this room before we moved, my first thought was that it had to be cozy. This is my go-to spot to sit down with a magazine or book for a quick time out or to put up my feet for a minute. A TV is inside the armoire, so when not in use it's easily closed and hidden. No matter the season, it's a  comfortable place to relax.

If you missed the mantel with my dried sunflower wreath,
from last week you can catch it here.

It's fun to change up the pillows and the quilt on the ottoman for each season.
Early September, I add in some warm colors and texture. 
This month I'm using my Sunflower pillow 
and the Kilim pillows that I bought last year.

I like to keep a quilt or blanket on the slipcovered ottoman because
it's my big-girl kitty's favorite hang out spot.
Plus I get to add a little more color in here with a quilt.

You can see just a small fraction of my Fall magazine stack
here on the old trunk.
It's easy to grab one and let my mind wander for a bit.

This pillow from Elliott-Heath Designs
is just one of a ton of wonderful pillow designs.

I'm using my two down bed pillows that my husband's grandmother
handmade for us for our wedding.
I love the original vintage ticking, plus they are super comfortable
and can be squished and squashed to your heart's desire.

My antique cast iron coal stove door has found a home here. 
It was part of a small parlor or bedroom stove that was originally painted white.
Two very heavy concrete alter candlesticks are usually here as well.

My reproduction fishing creel is here on the old carpenter's bench 
with a late summer small bouquet with black-eyed-susans.

The little leather bound book/pouch was attached to an old creel 
that finally fell apart last Fall.
It was hanging by wire, so I just attached it to this one.
I think that maybe it had been a way to keep track of "flies" for fishing.

I tried to keep the mantel "leaf free" for a bit until it's later in the month.
Then I'll be using a wreath that has a more fall vibe.
(I'm trying to pace myself here with Fall
and not go crazy too quickly!)

I've been tweaking my flower arrangements this week;
adding in a little more Fall color.
I'll be sharing those soon. 
I hope you all are having a great week.
Rain and cooler temps are getting me excited for Fall!

  1. It all looks so cozy for fall Debra. You know I always love your armoire in this room. My fave piece you have in your house. It looks great. Happy Thursday. xoxo Kris

  2. Very cozy and perfectly fall. Love those old quilts! I wish I could find some around where I live. Seems like the only ones left are the super ugly colors and would never work with anything in my home. Sometimes I think the little old ladies that sat around making these were colored blind. ;)

  3. Your Hearth room is always cozy, love your pillows. Adding different textures is so fun this time of year.

    Have a great weekend!


  4. Lovely! I love all the Fall colors against all the neutrals. It's a very soothing room.

    XO- MaryJo

  5. I love all the neutrals with the fall colors; perfect blend! The pop of color from the darling sunflowers are my favorite!


  6. I know how much you love Fall, and these comforts really do make us feel good, don't they? I love that architectural piece - unique! The folded quilt and pillows on your reading chair look super inviting and comfortable. I'm enjoying the changes to fall too.

  7. Debra,
    Love all your Sunflower additions!
    Warm hues against the white, indeed, makes this room warm and cozy for Autumn!
    That cooler weather is due this week!
    Bring it on!
    P.S. Canceled our Annual Trout Fishing Trip for 2020.

  8. You have really great taste and a very beautiful home. Love to many things about it to mention.

  9. I love your bright autumnal accents. Looks great!

  10. Debra I love your cozy hearth room! I love the pops of color you chose for fall against the neutral background of your hearth room. And I love your armoire - I've been on the hunt for one similar! Thank you so much for sharing your hearth room with us at Farmhouse Friday!
