Autumn Living Room

Simple little touches of autumn are my favorite.

Just a few pumpkins. 
Flickering candles and pretty little eucalyptus or natural touches
here and there.
Last week,  I shared a peek at our home wearing a sprinkling of autumn
and today it is all about a closer look at the living room.

I am big on ambiance.
Give me chandeliers and candles and lots of pretty little details that make my heart swoon
and I am a happy camper.

So when it comes to seasonal decor- it is all in the details and creating ambiance
without a ton of 'seasonal clutter.'

In the living room- I keep it fairly simple. 
A few pumpkins on the coffee table 
and mantel decor and that is about it.

The mantel is white pumpkins with gomphrena and dried roses this year
and I am loving it.

I will share a closer look soon.
On the coffee table- an old urn filled with Sedum- which several of you emailed to let me know
was Sedum Autumn Joy- thank you!
I love the texture this plant has- and how charming it is inside the house in a rusty crusty urn.

With just a few white and gray pumpkins 

It speaks simple natural autumn to me.

For a different look- I brought an outdoor lantern inside
and filled it with candles for a bit of that ambiance and glow.
I am loving how it looks- and you will be seeing more of this appearing 
in my porch post coming your way.

And on a small round table behind the sofa- since I changed things up a bit
that urn and sedum moved.

I have to say, I am kind of loving it here even more.

Don't forget to stop on over and see what all my friends are sharing today

And for another autumn look- stay tuned for more of this look 
and the secret those pumpkins have.

Happy decorating everyone.


  1. I do love that floral on your cocktail table, it is all very pretty as always!

  2. One of the prettiest mantels I've ever seen.....and pumpkins with secrets, huh? ;P

  3. I do love that sedum. Is it alive or dried?

    1. It is a potted plant-absolutely amazing!! I am in love with it.

  4. Beautiful Courtney! I love how romantic all of your pumpkins look. They are magical!

  5. Hi Courtney, your vignettes are so beautiful and elegant. It all says "Autumn Time".
    Have a prosperous day!
    xoxo Jo

  6. I am loving the gomphrena and sedum - they have an investing look and texture that go well with those white pumpkins, don't they?

  7. Everything looks so beautiful. I love the lantern what you brought in.

  8. I really like the look of all the white pumpkins. Are they real? I know there is such a thing but I've never seen any in person.

    The mantle is gorgeous! I am dying to have a mantle in my little living room. Problem is where to put it. I have a large bay window on one wall and a large, upright piano on another. The third wall has the TV on it and the forth a large opening into the dining area. See what I mean?

    I enjoy your lovely posts. I am remembering the Christmas ones from last year and those gorgeous pale, pale pink ornaments. Yum!

  9. I love it. I have Autumn Joy Sedum and it never bloomed. I moved it and it's bloomed the last two years. I love it as a house plant. As always, your look is flawless. It's 95 in Texas this week so I'm holding off on decorating a bit.

  10. I think the Sedum Autumn Joy is now my fav Fall plant...I just bought one at the grocery store of all places...Just love the mantel with the elegance of nature's beauty!

  11. You never disappoint...beautiful photos and creative ideas! Happy Weekend!
