Autumn’s Early Arrival

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Autumn is in the air and cooler weather is making it feel that way. I love this season! There is so much color and excitement with the changes that take place during this season. The trees are already changing here and there. Though I don’t want to see the green go away, I do enjoy the explosion of color that’s about to happen soon! We can’t stop the change, but we can enjoy it and just let it happen!
I’m excited to show you an Autumn design in my new dining room. Hard to believe that the dining room was renovated two months ago! I made it very Fall friendly. Today I’m showing you one portion of the room. It’s the electric fireplace. I wanted it to be a focal point when you walk in the room. I decorated it with various Fall finds to give it an Autumn feel.

I used this large size lantern right in the middle of the mantel. I placed a “real looking” flameless candle in it. These new types of candles look amazing! From a distance, you think it’s a regular candle with a real flame. The lantern matches the ones I have on my table. I like their continuity in the design of the room.

I used a mantel swag that has some faux pumpkins and gourds on it. It’s twiggy elements are great for a Fall look. There’s plenty of faux leaves, pinecones and berries that fill it out. Adding more items to it made it even fuller. I used green and gold pears, green pomegranates, small white pumpkins and more pinecones. The large white sunflowers have glitter on them. I like the slight sparkle they give. It’s unexpected!

The harvest look is perfect for my dining room. I stuck with light colors. No bright orange tones here. I wanted a soft elegant feel with a touch of rustic. The wreath above the fireplace, purchased a few years ago, has a grass look to it. I added a bow I made from burlap ribbon to give it a shabby chic feel.

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Please stop back, I have a lot more to share of my Autumn Designs.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Autumn Decorating!
