Fall Décor in the Entry

We've had some cooler weather, so I finally brought some of the Fall décor up from the basement. I'm keeping it light this year, and not bringing so much up.

 Only a vase of Fall flowers, a Welcome sign, and a Fall painting, atop the yellow tablecloth.

I'll share more later.  Have you started your Fall decorating?

Cool Weather Table Setting

As the days begin to cool off, I start thinking about comfort foods, like chili, or vegetable soup.  With that in mind, I set the dining room table in Fall colors, and ready for soup/chili days.

 This tablecloth has pears and apples on it, as do the dishes.  The cloth is a consignment find, and the dishes are from DT.
The napkins repeat the colors from the tablecloth.  The tablecloth has a crocheted round one layered on top for more interest.
 The candleabra is something I purchased last year at an antique shop.  It is done in a rusty look which I really like.

This is my first Fall decor for this year and is only in the dining room.  The other will come out later.

Changing the Guest Room

I've had the guest room decorated in green all year.  Since Fall is just around the corner, I decided it would be alright to go ahead and change out the comforter to a brown one I already had.

I like the green, but am ready for a change, so here is the room done in browns.

      Are you starting to add some fall colors to your rooms?

My Creative Space

I normally type my blog, sitting on the loveseat in the family room, but when I really want to be creative, I go into my little office space.

My office, per the house plan, is a bed room, but it is rather small, and all I could easily place in here would be a twin size bed, if I wanted to have any extra room at all, the max would be a full size bed.  So I've always used the room as an office (with a twin size bed).  The bed is the loveseat.  It makes into a twin size bed, and is ocassionally used if my grandson brings friends home with him, and since he's out of college and working, that hasn't happened in a while.

Here is my creative spot (since its makeover in March of this year).

The ottoman also serves as a coffee table of sorts, for the area.

Loveseat/twin bed

The left side of the cabinet was a gun cabinet in its former life.  My husband and I added shelving to make it match the other side.  So much more useful and looks 100% better than before.

I had used the cubbies inside the cabinet for storage, but love them as extensions for my desk area.

I am really enjoying the makeover of my office.  The color is Copper Patina by Benjamin Moore.  The large picture is one I had stored elsewhere in the house.  I bought the panels from!!!

So this is where I do my photo editing, and my eBay business.  I have all the package supplies in the closet, and keep my records in here.

This little room serves many uses.

Where is your creative area?
