A recent trip to World Market changed my decorating plans for the family room. I found a beautiful object in the store that I admired, and noticed happily that it was on sale for 50-percent off. I told myself I didn’t need it and kept shopping. But it haunted me. Halfway through the store I knew that pretty French wall clock was coming home with me. (This post contains affiliate links.)
I still love the turquoise clock that previously took up this space on the wall, but told myself I could swap out the clocks according to the seasons.
I’ve loved French wall clocks for as long as I can remember. This one became the inspiration for the fall decor in my family room.
I had the fall garland on hand and draped it across my rusty ceiling tin.
On the coffee table is a simple fall vignette. A Moroccan-style lantern adds a little warmth while a single baby boo cozies up to decorative carved balls.
Since I removed the turquoise clock, I replaced the turquoise lamp with this hammered pewter accent lamp. I propped the lamp up on a cigar box I recently found at Binny’s Beverage Depot for $1.50. I used another cigar box in my entryway’s fall decor.
Baby Boos add a touch of fall decor.
The Windsor chair is softened with a sheepskin throw while a basket of blankets is ready to warm cold tootsies on frosty fall evenings.
Finally, a fall spray adorns the top of my new French wall clock. I also dragged my French script pillows out of storage. I wasn’t planning on a neutral color scheme for this room, but the clock re-routed everything.
Does that ever happen to you? A single object totally changes your decorating direction?
