Welcome to the Fall In Love With Texas blog tour! If you're visiting for the first time, welcome! I'm Andrea, and my husband and I live in a 1926 Tudor-style cottage in a historic neighborhood in Dallas. You can read a little more about us here.
Our home has changed quite a bit the last few years. It's taken me a while, but as my style has evolved I have lightened and brightened our decor. This year's fall decor is lighter and brighter too, and I'm loving the fresh feeling it adds to this wonderful season.
A botanical print from The Graphics Fairy was my inspiration for fall decor this year. Its accents of pink and green fit perfectly in our living room that I redid for last year's One Room Challenge. (You can also visit each of my previous reveals with the links on my right sidebar.) The pretty floral painting from Home Goods, with its background of moody colors, feels fallish to me. I spruced up a berry wreath with a few glittery gold leaves to brighten it.
Our TV armoire, painted Glidden's Deep Sapphire Blue, sets off the gorgeous orange vase that I scored at Ross. (You can see a closeup of the vase here.) I'm still loving our bright plaid silk pillows, even though I never thought I would leave them out year-round. The vibrant colors just make me so happy. The top of the cabinet looks a little bare, but I finally got tired of having to stand on the coffee table to turn the sound bar on and off, so I took most of the ginger jars down :)
The side table got dressed up with a simple basket of pumpkins and some candles I painted stripes onto.
I'll tell you though, it was hot the day I painted these, and my candles nearly melted out there! They're all a little warped now hahaha. The color is Rustoleum's John Deere Green. Yep, tractor paint in an opulent cottage lol. It's just about the most perfect shade of green ever! It really brightened up this formerly dark basket, too.
Across the room, a few touches of fall orange peek out from behind some pretty florals in this chinoiserie vase.
Some fall florals made it into the hallway, also. This vintage telephone niche is original to our sweet old home!
In our sitting room, a lantern painted with Rustoleum's Rustic Orange is filled with a chinoiserie pumpkin. These little pumpkins are so popular now. Of course I went the budget friendly route and made mine, and just mod podged a dollar store pumpkin with a Caspari napkin :)
I truly hope that you have enjoyed these little peeks into our home! I'm so thankful for your visit, and especially thankful to Katie for organizing this fun blog tour!
