An Autumnal Interior

I love fall. It is hands down my favorite time of year. I love the weather, the activities and the feeling of renewal - like life can start over again in September.

On a clicking spree, I came across this great pic below on Southern Living's site.

I am typically not drawn to predominantly rich tones like chocolate brown as a foundation color, but I love how this all works together in this room. The gallery wall (in a nice, high-ceilinged room) is so eye-catching.  The curtains are rich and elegant, but they are tempered by the bamboo blinds and light wall color and rug color. I love the wingback chairs, and of course, the garden stool. Those lamps are pretty amazing as well. I think the only thing I would change is the coffee table - I would love something brassy and leggy to bring out some of the golden tones in the room.

Everything seems collected, like it has meaning, but each piece works together to create an interior that is perfect for this time of year.


  1. I have always loved this room....and the wing back chair looks so cozy! This is the perfect room to show a fall pallet.

  2. I love that makeover- Southern Living has some great fall rooms and this is at the tops of my list!

  3. Bring on the pumpkin spice latte.

  4. Southern Living puts out a "best of" edition every year, and this room is contained in the current issue. Its still on the bookstore shelves, or it was as of a few days ago. I love every room in the best of mag.
