Today I’m sharing easy fall decorating in my fireside room.
Don’t you agree?
Now, let me share easy fall decorating in my fireside room.
Hanging out in this fireside room is a big part of our day when we’re home.
Cozying up to the fireplace in the early morning hours makes for a great start to what lies ahead in the day.
And then getting it good and hot for our toes after being outdoors in the cold is so inviting.
It’s been a wonderful space for my family.
Do you have a place you like to get cozy for fall?
Here is a view into our fireside room.
I love easy decorating.
Especially during busy seasons.
Today I will share a tour of our fall decorations in our fireside room.
The letters T – E – A is what you’ll see before you enter.
I’m a big tea fan and love my brimming-hot cup of bergamot tea.
I painted the above letters with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White.
You can see a video from my YouTube channel below where I share my Thrift finds.
These letters used to be red.
Watch the video to see what they cost and looked like before.
Antique Victorian sofa.
I did a total makeover of this gorgeous rustic sofa a few weeks ago.
Here’s a link if you’d like instructions on how to paint a fabric antique sofa, here.
And here is the video sharing the before and after.
I have two black iron sconces on both sides of the black framed mirror.
I bought the sconces from Etsy.
On the sofa is a farmhouse pillow cover that has off-white canvas fabric with bluish-gray stripes down the middle.
It doesn’t show in this photo, but the back of the pillow covers have blue and white ticked fabric.
If you saw them in real life, they are comfy, soft, and the perfect farmhouse style I love.
I added some fall touches by writing FALL on a black chalkboard and propping it below the antique mirror.
Plus, I placed a Victorian vase on the floor with some Fall flowers in orange and off-white.
On the sofa is a Fall pillow that says, ‘Hand-picked farm fresh pumpkins.’ I don’t have a link for this pillow since I bought it last year.
Don’t you think the pillow is so simple and sweet?
In the photo below, you can see this area better.
I wanted to balance the room with black since, on the other side, there’s a black chalkboard inside the antique mantle frame.
I love how this turned out.
Especially getting my husband’s help was a blessing.
He is such an amazing guy who loves precision and things to be straight.
We balance each other out cause I am a wing-it kind of gal.
I think this turned out better than I imagined.
Here’s an up-close photo below of an antique WWII Navy Panoramic framed picture. I bought this from Etsy.
It feels good to have something authentic from WWll.
It was a great find.
Here is a full view of my fireside room.
The tan jute area rug is from Rugs USA.
Most of our jute rugs come from there.
I love the combination of the colors tan and grey.
It has a muted, soft neutral look.
The huge window in this room is perfect for bringing in natural light.
On the mantle, I have two silver candelabras.
I found them at Goodwill for $6.99 each.
Here is a post where I share two different ways to polish silver, here.
In the back is a taller candelabra.
I placed two white and one green pumpkin in the front and bright colored leaf stems.
In the back is a huge chunky gold framed mirror I found at Goodwill for $19.99. Another amazing find.
On top of that is an old French Quarter framed wall art from Michaels many years ago.
Victorian young woman oil painting.
When my husband and I were first married, there was a yard sale in the neighborhood where we lived.
This magnificent Victorian oil painting was for sale with masking tape across the front that said $2.00.
At the time, I had no idea what drew me to buy that.
It was the first thing I bought that was vintage for our home.
For years I carried this oil painting from home to home.
It was unframed and beginning to warp a bit.
My husband noticed it and had his friend, who had a framing business, frame it for my birthday.
It was the most thoughtful gift, and I still am so grateful for my husband’s thoughtfulness.
This has been a famous chalk-painted chair on my blog lately.
It has been viewed more than anything so far.
Especially on Pinterest.
Here is a link to that post here.
It’s an easy step-by-step tutorial on how to paint a fabric chair for beginners.
I painted both chairs the same ‘Paris Grey’ color.
They all coordinate together beautifully.
My guests asked me how we got our furniture to be the same color.
It is a talking point in discussions.
This antique chair is my favorite.
It’s my morning chair where I drink coffee and sometimes write a blog post.
Fireplace mantle chalkboard.
This fireplace mantle was almost garbage after I brought it home from a thrift store.
I propped it up sideways in the back of my old suburban.
By the time I brought it home, it was broken.
It was the most disappointing moment for sure.
My husband grabbed some wood glue and some clamps and brought it back to life.
I was so happy!
It’s more solid with the glue and is one of my favorite pieces for all seasons.
I painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White.
I took some sandpaper and gave it a chippy look.
It turned out to be my all-time favorite DIY!
I placed an array of pumpkins at the base.
On each side, I put creamy white-leafed stems.
I love how it is decorated for fall.
The saying I found on Pinterest.
Below is a bookshelf.
I’ve been slowly collecting old vintage classic books that have black, green, brown, and blue linen cloth binding.
I don’t know why, but there is something about the smell of old books that is nostalgic and takes me back to the many hours hanging out at our local library.
It is still a fun thing to do.
Do you like going to the library?
Our tan Ikea loveseat.
I originally bought this loveseat from Craiglist, and it had a white cover.
Over time, it became dirty.
The tan cover was $50 at Ikea—a great replacement.
The fabric has a soft feel which I love.
The secret I learned to get the cover on without a struggle is to take it out of the dryer after 20 minutes while it’s damp.
That made washing it so much easier.
These floral pillows are gorgeous!
What I love is they have all of the colors in my home.
Blue, creamy white, white, green, grey and tan.
I bought 3 of them off of Etsy.
They are thick linen.
The little brown, oblong pillow with a burlap trim adds a fall color.
I have a link for that here.
Vintage wood radio.
You wouldn’t believe this was vintage.
The radio works great.
In the front, I added three small pumpkins.

It was great sharing my fall decorations with you.

Have a wonderful week.
Until next time, bye for now.
