Fall Tweaking


Maine houseSince we are in Maine from May to November and our winter visits are short, not too much generally happens here in the way of seasonal decorating.  This year, however, I was so impressed by all the fall changes I’ve seen on blogs, Pinterest and in magazines I decided to make a few here.

Maine houseChange began by removing summer slipcovers and revealing the autumn  colors hidden beneath.

I was not disappointed!  I found a cozy new throw that will knock the chill off as I sit by the fire in the mornings and read your blogs and emails.  I was delighted to find that it has contrasting sides which suits my fancy for texture.

  1. Perfect to uncover the autumn colors in the furniture. That throw looks like just the perfect thing to cozy up in as the weather cools. I like throws even in the summer. It looks so plush and the color is adorable with the rich warm colors. You did a great job!

  2. You’re all set! The warm colors are so nice for fall. I love the new pillows you found – and the throw looks sooo soft and cozy! I have mantel challenges, as well. Seeing your leaves gives me a similar idea. Thanks for the inspiration. Hope you have a great week!

  3. Your stone fireplace is STUNNING! That is a piece of art there!!! Looking beautiful, festive and fall-ish. We are coming up for a quick stay…..checking up on the house painting and closing it up for the season 😦 I’m already looking forward to next summer. L
