Day 823: bedroom updated for fall
I just love fall (have you noticed?). Remember last year when I scored some yardage of a great Ralph Lauren plaid fabric? I wanted to make stockings out of it but never did. Then it occurred to me that it would make a beautiful blanket, but -- surprise! -- nothing became of that either. So I finally just took it off the bolt, cut it in half, and put each piece on one of the two beds in our house.
It really cozied-up the guest bedroom (see it before here) and inspired a few little fall-ish updates.
A stack of old books, a few bits of early-fall foliage, and a deer antler (Wes thought I was crazy for bringing it home from an antique store -- but I love it!) on a copper platter warmed things up a bit. And after I gave the green ceramic yard-sale lamp to my cousin, I brought this turned-wood lamp home from Target. The black shade came out of a closet, which explains it disheveled shape.
I even swapped the blue and white plates for some brown transferware plates I wasn't using.

I really thought your room was from a magazine at first and you were using it for fall inspiration! WOW! It looks incredible!
this looks great! I love the simplicity of it all!
I love how cozy it looks!
Looks SO GOOD! I love that lamp with the trunk... and the wall color. Oh, and I love the blanket too. :)
I thought it was from a magazine, too. Lovely!
ya'll are too kind! you spoil me :)
It looks very warm, snuggly and unique (am slightly creeped out by the deer antlers but I get creeped out easily). Likes a lot.
Jennifer that is seriously the best free makeover I've ever seen- I LOVE how cozy it makes the room feel. It looks like something out of a Ralph Lauren photo shoot- love love love it!
It seriously looks great! I love the lamp - love it. I've been looking for one like that for our bedroom. And I love the little things you put together on the tray - it looks great!!
But the best idea?? That plaid on your bed. I just may have to steal that idea....
So I just stumbled upon your blog, and I LOVE it! Can't wait to read more!
I definitely dislike my guest bedroom now :) Looks great. Also, what camera setting to put your camera in to take these inside pictures. They are so crisp.
Amanda -- switch a few things out, you'll feel better about it! and all I did was turn OFF my flash. that room as beautiful natural light, especially at midday, when I shot these.
Looks great! My mom has an old trunk just like that I am thinking of stealing.
Beautiful, yet not overdone. I love it! I especially love the trunk used as a bedside table. Nice touch.
This is lovely. Perfect time of year to get out your plaid!!!
I loved the summer look and love the fall look as well. Fantastic job.
i LOVE your fall updates! perfection.
That trunk is beyond fabulous!
