Fall part deux......

Well, it is not summer anymore in the Niagara Region. This weekend has been a steady drum of rain on the roof and 50 degree weather. That makes it snuggle up in front of the fire time, if I could only stop finding things to do around the house. Kitchen reno begins in 1 week; therefore spent 2.5 hours wandering around Home Depot getting all our supplies yesterday. Our basement reno is still purring along with homemade light fixtures and vintage furniture redos, that I am super stoked about. Eventually it will be done for a little photo op.

While parts of the house are in shambled redos, the rest of the space is sparkling quite nicely, with fall glory. I keep trying to do the minimalist displays and as you'll see it never works out. It always feels bare to me.
This is a picture intensive post. ENJOY!


Welcome! The view of the whole room.(I think it is the first time shown this way) We take a lot of flack for having the very large room split up but, it works great for our 2 people lifestyle right now. It also keeps the television(across from the sectional) from being the focal point.


1 of our gallery walls. I am art obsessed. There are 4 gallery walls in our home. Another post for another day.




the basket is a ZULU basket from South Africa, the cigarette piece is my photo in a Pottery Barn frame. antique corbel, birds nest, gold mailbox door, vellum books(new collection for me). the black lantern is Restoration Hardware iron.








wool lap blankets are handmade from MacAusland's Woolen Mills
they are super soft and give the same vintage vibe as the points blanket from Hudson Bay company without the price tag.
















i have leftover birds nests all over right now. family members are hunting them down for me.
i like the texture they add to certain areas.






i snuck 1 orange porcelain pumpkin into the front foyer. it blends nicely with our tiger.






vintage display with RH duomo lantern.


Thank you if you made it this far. Is the weather inspiring your fall decorating?

Have a great day

Meg
