Happy fall to you! I am sharing our neutral fall mantel today. The fall season is not quite here yet, but it is my favorite season, so I am getting a jump start on decorating.
My decorating style continues to evolve from my rustic fall mantel last year. My mantel last year incorporated vibrant oranges and greens. Over the past year, I have been moving back to neutrals. Neutrals are my comfort zone and each time I attempted to incorporate a colored wall or bold furniture piece, I always changed my mind or grew tired of too much color. I love how neutrals add a bright and fresh feel to our home.
To style my neutral fall mantel, I pretty much shopped my home this year! I incorporated a few cute little pieces from the Dollar Spot at Target-the acorn garland across the window, a few burlap pillows on the chair, and the chicken wire pumpkins. Every other piece was found somewhere in my home.
Aren’t these chicken wire pumpkins the cutest things? I thought they each deserved a pedestal, so I placed them on top of vintage crocks and added some straw for a farmhouse feel.
I love incorporating architectural salvage into my vignettes. This piece works nicely with the galvanized letters I picked up last year at Michael’s.
These chunky metal and wood lantern style vases are amazing! They were a great deal of the day from Decor Steals. I fell in love with them the minute I saw them and I was so pleased when I opened the box. They have been a staple in my decor ever since! Love them.
Did I mention their size? They are incredibly chunky and tall. Each one would look lovely as a table centerpiece or a few on a large harvest table. An arrangement of twigs and wood flowers give this statement piece life.
The vintage crocks were found at estate sales. Each one has its own character and size. I love this one because it almost has the veining appearance of marble to it.
I fell in love with this vintage wooden chair. It is not in the best condition, but the cane seat and details legs were all that it took for me to dig into my purse and shell out the $7 at a garage sale. And, don’t get me started on the fun tobacco baskets.
This acorn was part of the vignette I created last year with my coco nutty sweater acorns.
I hope you enjoyed my neutral fall mantel. It was so much fun styling the space and I can’t wait until the leaves start changing!
