Plum, aubergine, eggplant, or ordinary purple...
I was in the mood for something new and different, and decided on adding lively
accents of it here and there to spruce up my neutrals for fall.
A few diy projects and they have a complete new look without much expense.
If you've been reading for long you know of my love for neutrals because of the
versatility, and ease in introducing an entire new color palette...
On a whim I tried my hand at painting an abstract last week, you can read the details here.
I gave my Craigslist buffet gold highlights with a quick Rub 'n Buff here.
One of my favorite items to retrieve from the 'Fall' box every year are
a collection of photos of Detail Boy, I took one every fall when he was young.
Remember that lamp last February when I was in a pink mood here, I'm thinking it's ready
for something new.
Pillows are my favorite accessory for adding pizazz.
The green one on the left I stole from Detail Boy's room and the other three I made.
I like Ikea's Fjadrar 20 x 20 feather inserts for $6.99 here and make envelope style
covers for quick and easy changes! :)
The plum color palette was in the works when I began stenciling the suzani patterned rug here.
This fall floral arrangement came together after a trip to Lowes yesterday,
all the plants in the garden center are 50% off. Hurry! I picked up 3 ornamental kale,
a small mum and the pansies for about $11, the package of mini pumpkins was
$4 at Walmart. I'm hoping if I water it they'll last for my Thanksgiving table
centerpiece. Fingers crossed!
I chose a rustic Pepsi crate as my planter, but the possibilities for containers are endless.
I'll show you how I put it together tomorrow.
Thanks for coming along for the fall living room tour, sweet friends!
