Buh-bye, Summer! We've had a beautiful and hot summer in Toronto, but as much as I love this sweater season, I'm not loving the gloomy and rainy days of Fall. I know I may be a bit late in writing about Fall decor, but I still want to document this transition with it being our first decorated Fall at this house.
I got my hands on some Fall decor accessories early on, back in first week of September! I was incredibly honoured that I was invited to participate in HomeSense's Fall campaign. It was such a fun experience to work with industry pros, from hair and makeup, to professional photographer and videographer, and of course the whole HomeSense crew involved in this Fall campaign. Not to mention, how fun it was to be invited to go shopping for my fave home decor items!!
Here's my haul in the cart on the day of the shoot! I was looking for warm metallic decor, but don't we always add a little more to our cart at HomeSense? ;-)
The one item I was really hoping to get was the gold lantern, and wow, I found it! The throw was a nice add-on item... well, so were the rest of the goodies!
One that caught me by surprise was the tiered tray!! I've always been on the look out for one, but never really found THE ONE. I loved the bamboo details on this one and it was love at first sight!!
Throughout the past 2 months, I've gradually added these items around the house. As the weather gets cooler, the use of warm metallics complements the woodsy Fall decor, enhancing our home with a cozy ambience.
Here's how I used the goodies from my shopping spree to decorate for Fall around our house.
The pack of Fall decorative balls in vignettes:
Here's the copper tiered tray from my haul, together with the decorative balls. It adds just the right contrast to our cool-toned kitchen.
This is the vignette at our entry way's console table. I decided to make good use of this copper tray by moving it upstairs from its usual spot on our basement family room's ottoman. I love the mix of warm metallics by adding the gold lantern from my shopping spree.
The wooden top of this console table helps break up all the gold tones in our entryway:
Just me showing some love for the gold lantern by moving it around the house =) ... Here it is on our living room's coffee table. I've also added my beloved new throw on our couch:
I changed out the blue pillow cover to this darker neutral...
... so that the pillow covers are a neutral backdrop when I add Fall colours in the new silver earthware bowl:
Then I realized, I still prefer soft colours in the living room over the bold Fall colours:
When I finally put out all the Fall decor, which wasn't long ago, I finally packed up these summer decor accessories:
Yes, I know, my transition in seasonal decor is, umm, slow. Thanks to HomeSense once again for the invite to this unforgettable experience! I was able to get the early bird dip in shopping for Fall decor and have my hands on these goodies.
Now that I have our Fall decor down to a T, I think I can start making way for Christmas decor. I'm not really into bold red and green Christmas decor. This beautiful display of soft metallics and pastel winter wonderland at the HomeSense showroom is just my cup of tea.
