Hi there, friends! I’m still talkin’ fall here on Home Made Modern! If you’ve been too busy to visit me the past couple of weeks, you may have missed some of my favorite fall finds and my updated fall wreath. I also shared what I like to do around our house to get ready for my favorite season…say it with me…fall! I’m jumping on today to show you my fall mantel, inspired by some cuter-than-cute sweater pumpkins I got from Joann. Last year, I embraced a lot of color and went with a turquoise and orange theme. This year, I stayed much more neutral.
I fell in love with this little guy. His neutral sweater and metallic gold stem inspired the rest of our family room.
I also found these faux bois candles dipped in copper at Joann.
Here’s the full mantel full of neutral color and natural textures.
And another closeup of my favorite thing in the room right now:
I filled my Nate Berkus knock-off bowl with some more gilded gourds and leaves from Joann.
I kept our foyer pretty simple this year, as well. An appliqued fall pillow from the Country Living Fair and an acorn frame with more leaves keep things uncluttered but seasonal.
Finally, I decked out our dining room table with a splashier bit of orange. Paired with white and burlap, these orange branches still feel neutral. The branches are artificial stems from Joann. The key to making them look like the real thing is to bend and twist them so they look more natural.
Here’s one parting shot of our family room. It looked pretty cozy the other day after I finished refreshing for fall, vacuuming, and fluffing. Do you ever just walk around your house and admire it? Don’t get me wrong, there’s stuff I would change, but sometimes I’m really happy with the way it looks. At least while it’s clean…which lasts 5 minutes before the kids mess it up.
