When it comes to decor, I definitely lean more towards the unfussy side of things. Usually, I’m just happy that the table isn’t piled full of tools and mail. But now that we have our beautiful new DIY dining table, and I managed to hang some pictures, I’m trying to make more of an effort to make our home beautiful, everyday. As in, not just when company comes over. Beautiful for us, because we live here.
Also, I think every blogger in Blogland has been posting about fall decor, so I felt the need to jump on the hay wagon.
These pumpkins and gourds cost me around $6 (from Trader Joe’s and the pumpkin patch), which is cheaper than flowers…and they last longer.
Baby Brownie insists on calling them “apples” no matter how much I tell her they’re “pumpkins”. And they’re not for biting.
I placed them on an old wooden platter I got at a thrift store some time ago and filled in the extra spaces with citrus leaves I cut from our lime tree. I added the mercury glass votive holders I got last Christmas from West Elm, on top of a linen table runner we got for our wedding (from Crate and Barrel).
Here’s a little peek into our dining room as it is presently. I hung some family portraits up and the thrift store chairs we recovered are looking great. This room is a fun mix of rustic and modern which is pretty much our aesthetic.
