Fall in the Family Room

No matter what your color scheme in your home, most of us like to add some warmth when the temperatures outside start to drop.  I do, too.

I have never loved fall colors in my house but this year I've modified them.  If I had to say I had a 'fall theme' it would be 'copper.'

I lightly sprayed all my faux fall foliage with a light layer of copper to tone down the reds and yellows.
And then I was much happier.

A mix of real and faux gourds and pumpkins fill a dough bowl on the coffee table.
I found this faux silk brown plaid fabric when I found the blue plaid for my living room.  I thought it was the perfect fabric to add some warmth to this room for fall.  I very rarely buy throw pillows.  I like to make my own so I can have as many as I want and use the fabric elsewhere to tie the room together.
I filled the vase on the sofa table with fall foliage, branches and eucalyptus.  A bust of a horse brings some of the brown to the table.
Remember the topiary  I made in the Spring?  It's still going strong.  I never transplanted it out of the plastic pot it came in and I set the whole thing in a copper pot for fall.

 I'm enjoying the changes and I'll most likely keep the room like this until Thanksgiving is over.
I'll be back soon with our Fall kitchen and a complete Fall Home Tour.

We got our new stove (love it!) and all that's left to finish in the kitchen is the back splash. From Farmhouse to French Country Part Two

AND we're finally getting an estimate on our new bathroom tile today!  We've had to keep rescheduling because of being busy.  Our Master Bathroom

I hope you're having a wonderful day!

I'm joining these linky parties:


  1. What a beautiful family room. I reallylike all of your wood furniture.

    1. Thank you, Mary! My husband made the table behind the sofa and put a new table top on the industrial cart. He also made our dining room table and front entry table. I am a blessed woman!

  2. :D I can see why you luv it! And yes, I'd keep it through Thanksgiving as well. Just beautiful Lynda.
    Copper spray paint huh? Who knew? I used a dusting of white and cream, and was not happy with the results. Will have to try this. Thanks for the tip!! :D

    1. Thanks, Gee! I have used all my copper up and need to get some more!

  3. Simply gorgeous ! I also use white and cream and never thought of copper spray paint - how genius - have to pick some up !!!
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful family room!

  4. Your fall decorating looks fabulous. Love your style. The copper accent was a great idea. I have some faux pumpkins I may fix up with an idea like this. I love that horse bust behind the sofa- what a great accent.

  5. Your family room is lovely and I really like all your touches of fall. So glad I stopped by and I am your newest follower.
