I finally did it.
Temperatures here have been so wonderfully warm that I haven't felt like decorating for fall at all. In fact, I'm a bit upset that fall is here already--'cause I never got my "summer" look for the living room as completely pulled together as I would have liked. I was waiting to show that off--and here it is, fall, already!
But, here was the summer mantle.
So simple, you might not even say it was "decorated"--which, strangely enough, is kind of how I wanted it.
(Please don't mind me there--in pink!)
Inspired by Layla Palmer's Fall Mantle Link-up party, I set about to create something. I took it as an opportunity to play with neutrals and texture--and spend no money. (I did break down and buy the gourds last night, though. Glad I did).
However, there are elements I just love:
The white pumpkin. These are fabulous. I love the creamy whiteness against the rough, old, book.
Look at these faded roses. Love them. They say "fall" to me.
I like the different "golds", here.
Overall, I think it works.
(Since I got this done in time to link up, that's just what I'll do. It's a great resource!)
