Every season I do a little refresh of the bed linens on our bed.  I like to change things up a bit to  reflect the colors of the season and how I’m feeling.

With the onset of fall it was time for the pink and red pillows to move out and rich, warm colors to move in.

Here in Atlanta, I think our string of hot days is over and cooler  fall weather is here to stay.  This has prompted me to get  busy  and complete my summer to fall closet transition.

Every year as I begin to remove the summer items from my closet, I challenge myself to think about ways I might we able to wear each piece of clothing into the new season so I can maximize my investment. There are some pieces of clothing where the fabric, pattern or color just won’t work in cooler weather but for others there is hope.

White pumpkins

I was once a purist when it came to pumpkins and would only decorate with orange ones.  Over the last few years I’ve fallen in love with whites and green pumpkins and the sophisticated feel they can add to your decor.

I know like most of America you are probably busy decorating with pumpkins inside your home.

 You might be creating a beautiful centerpiece for your table

Or you might be accessorizing your mantel with white pumpkins.

As you embrace the fall season, don’t forget about all the creative ways you can decorated with white pumpkins outside your home.

Even though I don’t do a ton of fall decorating, I usually build a centerpiece statement for my dining table.  This year it was a use what you have decorating project so all it took was trip to the garage, washing some glass pieces and a little faux bois wrapping paper.

I love using wrapping paper for a table runner and this faux wood grain paper is perfect for a fall tablescape.

Whenever I create a centerpiece arrangement I always use items that will add texture and I always create layers.  I used several of my vintage trophy urns to elevate pumpkins and to hold small containers of mums.  Instead of using all one color of pumpkin, I used a variety which gives the centerpiece lots of depth.

My collection of cloches and glass domes is ever-growing and they are great to use on the table.

Pumpkins perched on top of urns and under glass create the layered look I love.

Fall Vignette By ConfettiStyle10

Hello there!  Today’s post is late because I’ve been a busy bee all morning.

 I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We had beautiful weather over the weekend, here in Atlanta and I was excited because that meant I was able to get lots of painting done and several projects completed and checked off the to-do list.  I also started adding a few fall touches in my home and the first was a quick console table vignette.

This vignette was really quick and simple to put together.  I pulled my large chalkboard out of the garage and propped it on a console table I have in the living room. I choose not to write anything on the chalkboard and instead hung a fall wreath in the center using some wide green satin ribbon.

On the top shelf of the table I scattered a few pumpkins at the base of the chalkboard and placed the concrete bust I bought over the summer on a stack of books.  I place some feathers in the bust head for height and added texture.

The wood book display to the left is a project I completed over the weekend and I’ll have the full tutorial for you on Thursday.  It so was easy to make.

It’s amazing how little changes to your decor can make the season come alive.  Next up my fall dining table centerpiece which I’ll show you later this week.

Do something magical this week!

Happy Friday!

We’re expecting a bit cooler weather this weekend and even though it won’t be cool enough to pull out my fall clothes, I’m really excited about putting away the sandals and pulling out my scarves and boots.  As someone who likes to layer my clothing during the colder months, I also don’t wont to be over-layered or too hot so one of the hottest fashion trends for fall is going to work perfectly for me…

There are so many reasons to love a long vest.  It’s the perfect alternative to a chunky cardigan, a stylish option to replace a blazer, they can be worn with jeans or slacks and they are easy to style with flats or boots.

Here are a few of my favorite long vest styles for fall and how I’d wear them:

Style #1:  I’d pair this black and white vest with a long sleeve black turtleneck or tee, a classic pair of denim jeans and and a pair of ankle boots.

Style #2:  A crisp white shirt, black pants and an animal print loafer would be the perfect pieces to wear with this classic grey duster vest.

Style #3:  To keep this teal, purple and white stripe from looking too dark and heavy, I’d wear it with a black tee and lighter wash boyfriend jeans.

Style #4:  This black vest has a more polished look to it so it can be dressed up or down.  I love the combo in the photo–classic white shirt, denim and an animal print scarf.

I’ve got a bunch of projects to do this weekend but I hope to do a little on-line shopping during the evenings and a long vest will definitely be on the shopping list.

Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you back here next week.
