It was in the 60’s and rainy here today, so I’m calling it. It’s time to decorate for fall. Of course, that doesn’t mean every room gets pumpkin-ized or hay baled. For me–especially in the less visible rooms–it’s about changing out things like blankets, pillows, or foliage. Since it needed to be gutted anyway (as usual), I started with my son’s room.
I found a plaid throw at Ikea to screamed fall to me. Plaid always screams fall, eh? Combined with the texture of the pillows, I think it warmifies things quite a a bit!
Some brown woven shades have made their way in for yet another layer of texture, but the big fall kahuna is the cowhide rug. I actually purchased it at Joss and Main for our bedroom, but that sucker just keeps getting cut from my to-do list. Until then, it fits in here quite well.
Two points to this post. 1. Preparing for fall doesn’t have to mean pumpkins–although I’ll have plenty of those! 2. My teenager’s room can be clean. Until five minutes after you take a picture of it.
