My small home is located on the west coast of central Florida, and my county is northwest of Tampa. My style is eclectic with coastal elements. Fall decorating is often a problem because honestly orange doesn’t really fit. This year has been stressful for me. A short case of COVID in August. A month later I get my flu shot and then had a mini-flu episode. I am currently moving my photo storage online which seems to take forever. What I really wanted in my home was soft colors and a relaxing atmosphere. The main feature of my living room is the futon with the oil painting above it. It really dominates the room. Adding pillows and a throw is how I change the futon to fit seasons, holidays, or my mood. Buying the wash and dry white futon cover is the smartest thing I’ve ever done.
Last July I wanted to get a new throw for the futon but in soft colors that would work most of the year. I found a dusty pink chenille cotton throw online at Walmart. I just love it. Remember Florida is a warm environment and 100% cotton is my favorite fabric.
The pillow I added is a brown embroidered leaves pillow I got years ago for fall.
On the table beside the futon, I added soft-colored flowers in a vintage hob-nail vase. Then I finished with several faux pumpkins I painted a few years ago.
Across the room is a small side table with my framed inspirational quote and neutral flwoers.
On the wall to the side of the futon is my coastal swag I made over last year.
Across from the swag is my framed printable, Foxes. It’s one of my favorites year round.
Below the fox art is a table with rustic coastal elements.
I made a vignette of a rustic pumpkin, wood beads, and carved wooden pelicans.
Until I finish the moving of my photos from the last 5 year’s, I won’t be doing any DIY or crafts. I’ll use this decor through Novenmber until I’m ready for the holidays. My family will join me from Michigan on December 29th for a month. I have a growing list of tasks I must complete to be ready for 3 people to join me.
Thanks for the visit. I hope you are all enjoying your fall days.
