Fall Fashion

Back in June I showed my living room mantel and hearth. 

 And now my fireplace insert is in transition to something I like better.

For now the hearth is a stage for some things I'm enjoying for fall.

I also keep my club chair covered in white in summer like I do almost all of the furniture. Here it is back to its fall look.

Fabric pattern is Laura Ashley "House Party." I think I picked it as much for its name as for its design!

On display are some of my very favorite decorating elements. Garden style, wicker, wire, white pottery, brown transferware, dried flowers and weeds, tin.

Has your fashion changed for fall too?
Hope you're enjoying it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Ciao for now!

  1. This room is so lovely and so is the mantle decor.
    I just love the toile club chair and the white linen draped over the back.


  2. That is such a warm and inviting room to cozy up in. I love all your display items. Some of my favorite things. Thanks so much for joining the party.

  3. I'm moving in! I want a living room like yours! So pretty and calm.
    You do good work!
    Hugs- Tete

  4. I love everything you do. Your home is just precious.
    Now, I am needing some pretty vintage pieces to go over a couple of club chairs that so need to be replaced or money for either at this time. But, maybe I'd be happier to have something pretty on them...thanks so much for the inspiration.
