One More Touch of Fall for the Living Room

When I made the velvet pumpkin centerpiece for the dining table, you can see that post here, I needed to put the cornucopia somewhere, so I moved it to the coffee table in the living room.  That called for a little bit of rearranging.

I replaced the rusty/orange runner with a white one.  This gives the table a lighter look.

Just enough rusty/orange to tie in with the pillow.

A tiny bit of aqua in the arrangement, helps to tie the entire vignette to the room.

The white runner definitely helps to keep the rusty/orange fall color subtle.  Love that.

  1. Marty,
    I'm smitten with your touches of Aqua in your Fall decor! The addition of the Aqua hydrangea in your floral arrangement is subtle and stunning! The hue of your pumpkin under the cloche brings another elegant touch of Aqua in this vignette! Magnificient, dear friend!

  2. Love your home is so beautiful. I love looking at your blog every day. Are you going to have a fall cloche party??

  3. Heavenly calm, Lady M... love the aqua touch.

    Hmmmm... do you think aqua fits to my olive green couch? I am so tired and done with this color scheme now. But I have priorities. Leave and will visit old mum on the 30th, so need to save for shopping down there.

    BTW... do you have a blogger design who swapped your blogger to net? Let me as I am need to upgrade mine too.

    Happy mid-week, Lady M.

    Greetings from a rainy (again) Stockholm,

  4. Very pretty vignette, Marty. I love the cornucopia and the pumpkin under glass.

  5. So, so pretty! Love the cornucopia with just that touch of aqua for a little personality!

  6. Your coffee table display suits the whole rooms scheme, Marty! I am really loving your blue pumpkin under the cloche.

  7. Another pretty vignette, Marty! I love the touches of blue I'm seeing this year. You are really ready for fall!

  8. Nice vignette. Very pretty and full.


  9. Oh Marty, your fall touches are all so beautiful! Enjoy your evening, Gail

  10. Lovely Marty,
    You are right about the white keeping it subtle. It looks really beautiful hon. I am working on my white livingroom today, and trying to keep it subtle as well. It is amazing how things rub off on you after seeing it so long
    on other people's blogs, I absolutely love that now, and I am usually a
    person who likes color............
    Funny how you change!!

    Have a great week ahead hon,
    Blessings, Nellie

  11. Everything looks just beautiful Marty! Makes me want to hurry and finish up my own fall decorating!

  12. Marty, love the cloche paired with the horn of plenty. Olive

  13. Marty, I love the aqua and orange together! It really makes your eye travel back to those gorgeous pillows! I also love your massive mirror above the sofa!

  14. I love your coffee table vignette. I love your whole living room. Beam it up Scotty! lol Blessings Paula

  15. Although I am not crazy about cornucopias I love how you have added the different colors together. Great idea and one I will keep in mind.
