Simply orange.

I've seen so many lovely rooms decorated in neutral tones for autumn,
but for me it's all about orange.  It's such a cheerful accent color
 that instantly warms and brightens our house as the days get shorter and cooler.



Peonies and olive bucket from Hobby Lobby 
liven up this corner of our living room.



I just plunked three bunches into the bucket.
Easy!




It's been so long since I've bought any new autumn accents,
but this pretty throw was 75% off, so why not?





A few items from my dwindling stash top my pie safe.



Orange candles and twigs from our yard decorate the mantel.





Cinnamon scented pine cones are a must during fall and winter.





These days I don't make a lot of changes for the seasons.
I have very little left in my decorating stash - and I'm not at all sad about it.
In fact, I just dropped off another load of stuff today!






I cut back all my hydrangeas today, but I didn't bring any indoors to dry.
It's been an awful season for outdoor allergies, so I'm trying to keep
our house free of my allergy triggers.




I bought a very inexpensive Wally World off-white area rug
to keep my toes warm and tide me over until......pigs fly, I guess.
It's not as blindingly bright as it appears in this photo, and best of all,
unlike my old red rug, it doesn't clash with orange.  :o)



Thanks for visiting!

  9. Yay!!! So excited to see what's going on up North. I attempted to cut down my hydrangea this afternoon and then it was too cold, so I came back inside to warn up and forgot all about it until you just mentioned them! That's what happens when you get older I guess :)

  13. I love, love your crisp autumn room! As always, you've done it up perfectly... even with a dwindling stash. My fav' is the olive bucket and peonies!! Enjoy the cooler weather and keep those tootsies warm. Although, it seems that it's easier to keep warm these days... at least in flashes. Orange you glad I mentioned that? xoxoxo

  14. So happy to hear from you....love your posts. I, too, am a 'fall' orange person....love the different colors but they do not blend in my decor as well as they do for you. I go easy on the season changing also....maybe because of the 'season' of life I'm in??? Blessings.....
