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!

  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!
