Sprucing up for Fall

I must admit that I don't like the sound of the title of today's post. It is really still summer but the sights and sounds of fall are evident everywhere. To the Halloween decorations in the stores (right next to the Christmas) and to the sightings of school buses. I like the idea and the color of Fall, just not the fact that colder days are coming. So today I will just focus on the lovely colors of fall how I can use them to spruce up my home. I found all of these lovely paintings in the Grandinroad catalog and I think anyone would work.
I like this one simply because of the stripes and the weathered look. It comes in two sizes, 18" x 36" and 24" x 48" . It was certainly pull any room together and would look great a pair.

I love the subtle shades of brown and green, although the sea foam color is not a favorite, it works with the brown and yellow. It is called Washed Tapestry and that is exactly what it looks like to me. I also love the sunburst wheel pillows as well, they look like something that I could actually make.

They are inspired by an ancient Central Asian craft tradition, and are called a Suzani pillow, they have a stylized sunburst pattern. The colors are bright and fall like and the sun pattern helps brighten some dark and cold days to come. I can't tell if it is an embroidered pattern or if it is felt applique so maybe I will put this on my to make list and figure it out. It's no quite yet fall yet, but I think these few item would help me spruce up for Fall.
