fall mantle, tablescape and barstools

i love fall.  a lot.  i love that the sun is shining but the air is crisp.

the fragrance of mulling spices and yummy candles filling the house.

jeans, sweaters and boots....i could go on and on :)

we recently had our Bible study group over for dinner so i snapped a couple of quick pictures.

since you've last seen the kitchen we have added some new seating.

we went with slipcovered chairs from ikea.  they wash up great and are comfy :)

the barstools are from overstock and add the 
perfect industrial look i was going for up against the brick kickwall


the easy centerpieces were a couple of bundles of dried wheat from michaels.

i keep my fall decor fairly simple.  some fresh mums on the coffee table.
a cozy throw.  can you see the color on the trees starting to change?  


 a few willow branches and a wreath up on the mantle.  

hop on over to julia at hoooked on houses for more fall decorating
and to the nester for more fall mantles!

  5. Beautiful! I love all of it, especially the look of the barstools. Can you tell me where you found your wreath? I haven't been able to find one I like yet, and I like that one.

  6. thanks girls :)

    @mamahubbard: we actually had the table made by a local craftsman because we needed a custom size for that area. i have seen similar ones at restoration hardware.

    @megan: that wreath is actually pretty old. i found it at macy's (when it was marshall fields) in their home section. :)

  16. Your room looks beautiful. May I ask where your slipcovered furniture is from? And how is the white holding up with KiDs running around!? :) I have three, and really want a light colored slip covered sectional, but am afraid to take the leap!
