Fall is finally here! Which means pumpkin spice lattes, plaid, and gatherings. Make your house guest ready one room at a time, beginning with the living room. Whether you have a functional fireplace or a focal wall, these tips can be applied in multiple guest spaces.
Tip 1: Support a local farm by buying pumpkins and in season fruit to line your mantel with. Get a variety of sizes and use perception to add interest.
Tip 2: Use what you have on hand, rather than buying pricey details. The “blanket” under the oranges in the bucket is actually a shirt that I thought fit the fall aesthetic.
Tip 3: Shop at thrift stores (especially those that foster a cause like the Habitat ReStore and Salvation Army Thrift Store). The candlesticks on the mantel were a Habitat ReStore find.
Tip 4: Use heirlooms and pieces with a story. The focal point mandolin was my husband’s great grandmother’s.
