What the living room wore

My living room and I have a short attention span. I don’t have a foyer- so it’s the first thing I see when I come home. I don’t want to see the same palette winter, spring, summer and fall. But… I am not wealthy, wasteful, or without a small child who throws things on the floor with regularity. So… I use slipcovers, vintage and second hand to give myself a seasonal break now and then. I am getting ready for some Christmas layering, which inspired me to go back and revisit some summer and fall pictures. How about you? Do you try to redo your living spaces seasonally? Have you already decked the halls?

Summer, summer, summer….

I found these Bois D’arc horseapples when on a walk, vintage pyrex.

Friends made my lemon, so cute and tacky, no?

Vintage fabric found at a flea market, made into pillows after dry cleaning to smooth out and clean.

And then there was September…

A summer statue is a place to rest a fall hat

    In my family, we call them hedge apples and it is said that they keep spiders away!

    That pleather pillow is to die for! I love people who redesign their homes a little bit with the seasons. When I have my own house, that’s what I plan to do. You should do a tips and tricks post about how to do it little by little!

    I’m still living with my parents while I’m in college, but they redecorate every season too :) we haven’t taken out the Christmas stuff yet, but we will after the next week! I’m excited! x

    I absolutely ADORE your decor and your living room! It’s just so cozy! I’m kinda doing the same look in my room. I like the lighter tones you’ve chosen..very brave with a little one!

    I just recently found out what horseapples were. I had never seen them before. They are so interesting to look at.
