Summer To Fall Transition



Pin It

October is here and the warm weather is still caressing us with summer temperatures. The city is full of miniskirts and my balcony flowers are blooming incessantly. Still, when the night comes around (pretty early - it's pitching dark at 8 PM!) the Fall takes out its little claws and scratches at the window with chills and winds. So I am slowly making the shift towards a less summery decor in the living room.




It's a great time to work my way around the light blue inspiration from the Beachy living room, a few months ago. The star of the season is undoubtedly this traditional rug in Fall colors. I've just bought it a month ago and it already feels like it's been here for a looong time (in a good way!). It works great with the golden tones of the camel leather Marrakesh pouf.





Matching the rug, I've gathered a bunch of pillows and a little plaid blanket. After all, we need to be warm and cozy in the evening, don't we? I love the texture mix, with the wool, the fleece, the leather and the sheep skin. The base of the living room is grounded with burnt orange and warm stuff, while the top side of the room (with its light blue lamp and art) still feels free and summery. 





Hooray! The Fall living room has been featured at Christina's Adventures, Social Salutations, It's Overflowing, Little Inspiration, Sugar And Dots, Under The Table And Dreaming and Sugar Bee Crafts. Thank you so much, it really made my day!

    1. Thanks for visiting, Tina! It's funny that I do the same as you do: I take out ALL the rugs in May and I put them back on the floors when the Fall chills arrive.

  12. Fun to see how others transition to Fall. I wasn't even going to bother, but little by little it seems to be happening anyway. I especially enjoyed the plaid blanket and the sheepskin. Nice.
