Fall Decor~Bridging the Season

~Bridging the Season~ 
What does that mean?  Well, it's kind of like your wardrobe, maybe it's not quite fall weather but you don't want to wear bright Summer colors anymore. 
 It's kind of easing into Fall.  
Don't get me wrong!  I Love Fall Decorating!  
I'm just not ready for an explosion of fall leaves, pumpkins and lots of red, golds and greens yet. 
 So, I'm easing into Fall 
starting with my Entry table.

My inspiration
 (cause everyone needs a little inspiration, right?)
 was this chocolate brown and creamy white pumpkin. 
 My good friend gave me this beauty
 for my birthday last week. 
 She really knows what I like!  
Isn't it the cutest?  So of course I had to use it right away.
I searched around in my basement storage/staging area for colors that would compliment the pumpkin.
I wanted to keep it simple and only use cream, beige, green and a touch of the turquoise that runs throughout the main living areas.  
I have this weathered lantern that I placed a floral arrangement into and a grape vine wreath hangs on the edge.
I love the top of the lantern, I think it looks like an acorn top.
This is the cute plate that I got for a steal at Nell Hills during the Summer Sale.  It previously had sea shells and sand in it.  White pumpkins and acorns are taking their place.  
I placed this parsons chair here for now with a few pillows from my pillow stash.  I am working on another chair for this space but Mr. Parson will have to do for now.
I put up my ASCP mirror over the chest and stole a lamp from my buffet table.
Simple, Easy, Bridging the Season Fall Decor!  
Maybe now we will get some almost Fall weather. 

Crossing my fingers in the 97 degree heat!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,
XO Cindy

Cindy, this is so pretty! I'm easing into it, as well! Kinda hard to do when the temps are edging back toward 100 for Labor Day. I love your pumpkin. The colors are so soft and pretty. What a lovely transition!

This is perfect for this time of year, Cindy! I love your way of thinking! The lantern looks so cute...I have a lantern and I am totally inspired to decorate it for fall now! Your new pumpkin was such a thoughtful gift, I love it!

Beautiful vignette Cindy!! The weather is teasing us here in NY. Today we had beautiful fall like weather, it's actually kind of cool tonight but by friday we're right back up into the 90's again :(

Lovely vignette!Really like the way you borrow from other areas of your home. I do that, too. Makes things new w/o breaking the bank.

Perfect! I appreciate the idea of easing into fall- which is exactly how I'm planning to do it! I love the lantern with the goodies in it...makes me want to peak in!! The chair looks lovely and I love the wreath hung on the lantern..very stylish! I'm still enjoying the summer weather here in Michigan but you can sense fall is on it's way in.

Jen Lossing, The Consigner Designer said...

This is a nice way to ease into it. It it still 100+ degrees here, so I definitely could use some tips on easing into the fall weather!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty vignette, Cindy! I love that pumpkin. I was going to start Fall decorating a little bit yesterday, but that means a trip up to the attic. With 94 expected as the high temp today, I think I may wait until next week!

I just love how you've eased into fall Cindy and I feel the exact same way! I'm not quite ready to let go of Summer and yet I'm definitely ready to switch things up a bit. You've "bridged" the seasons so perfectly and we are glad you shared this with us at Inspiration Friday!

Well, this is just the perfect transitional setting for Septemeber! Everything is so beautiful! Thank you for joining TTF and have a great day!

What a gorgeous preparation for fall. I am not ready for fall yet. Sweden did not have a summer. It seems we only have fall the whole summer.

Happy day.
