can you believe it’s the last friday in october? yup, halloween is a mere five days away which kicks off the holiday season. are you ready? but before we shift into high gear with the countdown to christmas (a mere 60 days) let’s savor these gorgeous fall days. so come on in and sit a spell as i share my fall home design updates. there’s nothing fancy, nothing special just a festive fall attitude here and there in our home. when i was a young girl, i always knew what season it was thanks to my mom. every spring or fall the pillows would be exchanged, new tablescapes created, and crystal bowls filled with candy corn or chocolate eggs. i guess you’d say i caught the home design bug honestly! and i can’t help but think of my mom every time i’m tempted by yet another christmas pillow…
let’s start the tour at our front door. oscar is ready to greet you. after he decides if you’re friend or foe he’ll let you step inside. the gothic urn filler is from grandinroad, a favorite online stop of mine for decorating inspiration. isn’t this skeleton adorable? when i spotted mr. bones at Pier1 earlier this fall i knew he had to come home with me.
it’s a laid-back day where i’m wearing a favorite Ralph Lauren polo bear sweater. a new addition is trotted out every fall. take a peek here. J.Crew skinny jeans, similar striped shirt, and Ryan loafers keep this ootd prepilicious.
pumpkins set the scene for the front steps along with lanterns, gourds and mums.
inside the house a variety of pumpkins spruce up tables and shelves. similar glass pumpkin.
pillows and throws are a simple touch to welcome fall in style. similar Ralph Lauren pillows.
i’m always a sucker for paisley.
my mother always had a centerpiece for her table whether big or small. the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree. similar glass hurricane.
a cute diy for those special trick-or-treaters. fill a surgical glove with candy! how easy is that?
this instant pot is the handiest gadget ever! the pumpkin soup was ready to eat in eight minutes.
love this titan peeler which skins veggies in no time.
don’t let this swiss chard salad fool you. it’s a hearty fall dish with the addition of mushrooms and hazelnuts.
this plum prosecco cocktail is refreshing and light.
dinner is served! mr. style had three helpings of soup. can you say delicious?!
here are some outtakes of our friday photo shoot. whenever i plop down oscar decides it’s time to slather me with smooches.
“mr. demille, i’m ready for my close-up.”
here’s our fall porch, pumpkins and all. just love this time of year!
all right, gang, it’s time to get this friday underway! thanks so much for stopping by. oscar, ollie and i wish each of you a lovely weekend!
