In this second installment of the farmhouse holiday series, we’re all sharing our fall family rooms…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, but I don’t do much in the way of fall decorating. I’ll put out a couple of pumpkins, a bowl of apples, etc. and just leave it at that. In the case of my family room, I just put a mum in a bucket and added a couple of faux pumpkins in a wicker basket tray on the coffee table. It’s just enough to bring an essence of fall to the room without having to bring up bins of decor from the basement.
I also put out a bowl of mixed nuts and a nutcracker I picked up on Etsy a couple of years ago. My Oma always had mixed nuts on her coffee table and I like bringing them out for fall and winter each year.
These mums were $5.00, so I’m treating them like fresh flowers. I’ll just keep them inside until they look sad and then I’ll move them outside or pitch them. And I won’t feel the slightest bit bad about it!
I like putting coffee table decor on a tray, so it can easily be moved out of the way when we’re watching a movie and want to prop our feet up.
If you’re familiar with my family room, you may notice that it looks a little different!
Just this weekend, we got some new furniture for the space and it looks and functions so much better. I’ll share more about it in a few days, but this is my favorite version of our family room. It’s a room I’ve struggled with, because it’s long, narrow, and has a lot of traffic paths, doors and windows.
But that’s what a family room is, right?
Speaking of Sebastian, the other nice thing about the sofa placement is that we’re able to hide his crate and toy basket behind it. It’s still out in the open, but it’s not in your face. You have to walk around the sofa to really see it.
More on the changes in the family room soon!
Until then, here are some other beautiful family rooms to visit on the tour…
