Well. It’s official.
Today is the first day back to reality for us.
Which means… summer is over.
Perhaps not summer as a season (we still have a few weeks left to hopefully enjoy some extra sunshine and warmer temperatures).
But summer as a lifestyle.
So it seems fitting that today I’m sharing my first in a series of fall decor posts. Over the next month I’ll be sharing all the spaces in our home transformed for fall; though I have to tell you that I’ve definitely gone non-traditional with my fall decor this year.
You won’t be seeing any red or gold; orange or purple. It’s all blues and greens and some natural greyish tones. Maybe a bit of wheat thrown in for good measure.
And I’m loving how these non-traditional colours still manage to feel “fall”-ish even though they aren’t quite what you’d expect. I kept things pretty simple on our blue and green fall mantel this year, and it feels just right to me. What do you think?
I’m joining up with a talented group of my blogging friends today to share our fall mantel decor and I can’t wait to head over and see how they’ve started decorating their homes for fall…
I’ve shared the links to all of these beautiful fall mantels at the bottom of this post!
As I mentioned, I love how our non-traditional blue and green fall mantel decor seems to bridge the gap between summer and fall nicely. September is an odd time of year; not quite summer anymore but not really full blown fall either. In fact, it’s probably one of the nicest months of the year where we live. The temperatures are usually lovely and we often have many clear sunny days.
Nothing is quite as beautiful as the color of the leave turning against the bright blue sky, now is it? And something about decorating with greens and blues this fall just felt right…
The tall glass vases are from HomeSense, the faux gingko stems are from Ikea, and the blue and green fall garland is from Michaels.
The old newel posts were found at a vintage shop.
Oh, and did you might notice the chairs?
I’ll be back soon to share more details on that recent change! It’s made quite a difference to our living room as a whole…
Want to remember this?
Ready for some more awesome fall inspiration??
