Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I’m excited to be sharing my first fall decorating post of the season and it’s all about fall mantels! (This tour is hosted by my friend Krista and there are lots of other bloggers all sharing so be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to see all the inspo!)
Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, so I’m always anxious to start collecting pumpkins, putting out cozy blankets, and having my first Pumpkin Spice Latté of the season! Of course, it’s still hot here in California, but we’ll just pretend that there’s a chill in the air already 😉
I’ve been stalking my local Trader Joe’s for the last week looking for pumpkins, and am thrilled to have been able to get some in time for this tour. You see, I had a certain color scheme in mind for my fall decor this year, and it involved being able to find the pinky-orange pumpkins that I saw there last year. I wanted to do something a little more colorful than my previous neutral fall mantel, but nothing too strong. I generally steer away from the bright oranges and dark rusts, but lately I’ve been loving a softer version of that palette. All those warm and cozy autumn colors, but just a bit more faded.
Think soft coral, faded gold, and lots of green, with accents of brass and copper. That’s what I had in mind when I created my romantic fall mantel in shades of copper…..
Of course, I have to have my favorite white baby boos! What would fall be without these?!
I mixed them with lots of eucalyptus, as well as one of these fabulous pink/orange pumpkins! I’m in love with this color!
After having several seasons of a more neutral fall palette, it’s actually a really nice change to have some color in here! I’m enjoying the warmth these colors add to the room, and it’s making me definitely want some cooler weather now!
My vintage French urn holds more eucalyptus and is joined by these adorable copper votives from Pottery Barn. As soon as I saw these, I knew they would be part of my fall decor this year!
I’m seriously crushing on copper right now and these little votives have my heart. They are so versatile and could be used almost anywhere. I’m thinking they may make a reappearance on one of my fall tables!
