While I was working on some Halloween projects last night in my living room, such as rearranging some furniture and making creepy spider egg sacs, I realized how much my living room has changed over the past seven months of living here. I thought it would be fun to share some photos of how the room currently looks now in October and how it used to look back when we moved in.
Here's a fun fact: the first recorded use of the word Pumpkin as a color name in English was in 1922. When you really get to thinking about colors, especially in the realm of paint chip swatches, you hear things like papaya whip and shell brook and poisoned apple. Crazy how people come up with these names and call them colors.
There is just something so invigorating to me about fall. I love everything about it, the occasional rain, a slight chill in the air, and the holidays that come with it. It's the only season I actually make an effort to welcome into my home decor every year. I went on a googling mission to find autumn-themed DIY projects that not only bring nature indoors but incorporate fallish things in a stylish way. Here are 3 simple projects that involve stuff you have around the house and a few things from Mother Nature.
Fall is almost here! I can feel a shift in the weather (aka no more searing heat), I don't have to burn holes in my wallet by cranking the A/C down, there is less usage of my Coolerest Sleep Pad, and I finally feel like I can cuddle up with a warm cup of hot coca and a soft throw around a fireplace (check out these electric fireplaces if you live in an apartment or home without a fireplace set-up). I went searching for a couple of throws that I could see myself using this season. The throw I'm currently using are quite old and dingy, no matter how many times I wash it. These throws actually go from lightest to heaviest (completely unintentional I promise) which is funny because I can totally see myself trading throws each month as the year gets colder since in Texas it doesn't truly cool off for a few more weeks.
