Nontraditional Fall Colors in the Living Room

Wait! What happened? I purposed to not lament the passing of summer this year. Instead, I was going to relish the coming of cooler weather. I was going to revel in the unearthing of my favorite boots from the pile in the back of my closet. I thought I would rejoice as I wakened my old favorite sweaters from their summer slumber.  I was going to have my home decorated for the season ahead of the game giving you all ideas and inspiration to decorate your homes for family and guests, alike. But, life happens. Sometimes it is messy and all our plans have to give way to what the Lord has for us.

That being said, my home is decorated for the season. I had been sharing with you some of the projects I was working on to get it ready for the decorating (here, here and here). This year I decided to hold onto some of summer color and deviate from the traditional oranges and yellows that come with the season.

As I am writing this I am also realizing I had not yet shared with you the finished living room. Remember in February of this year we ripped that room apart when we decided to move the television to a different wall. That turned into a slew of projects that encompassed three rooms in our home. (You can read about them here, here and here.)

 So without any further delay (or better late than never) this is our living room, dressed in it's autumn regalia. 

I repainted the inside of my hutch top to white. 

This is the tv wall that started all the projects this year.

I love the lighting we chose for this room. While I was taking pictures one of the new shows was on HGTV and look at the light! GAH!

Are they doing the hand-jive? 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are all decorated for the season and enjoying the time as you ready for the fast approaching holidays.
