Simple Fall Touches in the Living Room

As you may know, fall is my favorite season. The landscape - here in New Hampshire - explodes with color and we reap the benefits with spectacular views.

A favorite quote sums up my feelings perfectly:

"Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile."
~ William Cullen Bryant

Whereas the colors of Autumn are abundant, I opted for a quieter rendition for our home decor.

In keeping with my 'less is more' mindset, a gathering of simple objects welcomes the new season.

Blades of wheat are tucked in a saved amber jar and framed owl photos capture the wilds of nature.

Before and After of Painted Wall Unit - Stained Wood to Gray Paint at Pieced Pastimes

For those of you that are interested, this is a before and after of our wall unit that I just painted. As with life, I hemmed and hawed as to taking on the challenge, but I finally gave in. I still like the old wood cabinetry, but I love the brighter painted version much more.

The mantel is once again a sparse gathering of collected objects to emulate the season at hand.

The owl theme continued onto the coffee table.

Another change in our living room is this new cross wall. I have been collecting them for a while and wanted to incorporate the crucifix from my grandmothers casket into the mix.

It turned out just as I hoped it would - a quiet homage to my faith.

Fall is more than a season to me. It's the last few days of open windows and the beginning of nights by the fire. It's snuggling with a favorite quilt. It's apple picking, pumpkin carving and fair days. It's reminiscing about days gone by and planning the days ahead. It's all of these things and so much more.
