I am “fall”ing for blue for Fall decor this year.
I am doing this for two reasons.
One, because I love blue.
Two, because I need to keep my interiors simple in these days
of being in the process of selling our home.
I was able to visit a couple of Pottery Barn stores while I was in California
and I caught some great sales.
It’s a good thing that pillow covers do not take up much room in your suitcase!
Pillow covers were on sale for 30% off and I took advantage of that sale while I was away
as I would have missed it if I had waited until I arrived home.
I am toning down the Fall decor and using Fall colors in flowers.
A trip to Trader Joe’s produced two orchids
that I placed in my blue and white cache pot.
I returned my antique French Boot forms to the hearth,
so they can be ready to be warmed by the fire in the months to come.
Several Boo pumpkins line up on mantel.
Velvet pumpkins sit atop my antique French bamboo mini table.
Ok….now back to some “pillow talk.”
The Robin Crewel pillow cover was not only on sale but on super clearance.
I have been eyeing this pattern for a while and was surprised to find a pair of these
in the Pasadena Pottery Barn store. Lucky me! They were 65% off!
The herringbone patterned pillows were already in my stash and
coordinated very well with the Robin Crewel pillows.
Hello pretty blue crewel pineapple pillow!
Between now and September, I may add a few additional fall decor items to this room
however, I am truly trying to keep the look pretty simple this year.
Transitioning the rooms from Summer to Fall decor will be pretty subtle this year.
However, I must admit, the colors I chose for the sunroom are not what I call
too subtle. They are a combination of colors that I used to wear in high school!
When I saw pillows in these colors, I knew they belonged in the sunroom.
I know that it is still the middle of August …. however, we bloggers pretty much
have to be ahead of the season to hopefully give you some great Fall inspiration.
I am anxiously awaiting for the Fall mums to hit the garden shops!
Now my front porch will be off limits as far as adhering to my simplistic rules.
Cannot wait to fill it with pretty mums!!
Have a most beautiful day!!!
