My September Foyer Decor

Just A Touch of Fall In The Foyer

How can it possibly be September? Does anybody else besides me think the summer went really fast? There is a crisp Autumn coolness in the air now. Today, when I went out to run errands it was only in the 50's! I'm definitely ready to add some Fall decor, but I'm not ready for lots of orange yet. So, I was pleased to come across these sweet pumpkins in creme and green. 

I think they add just the right touch to my September foyer table display. You may recognize the placemat from my Summer Tablescape post I did recently. And, I thought the deco pear coordinated well with the look. Sort of a nod to September harvest time. The whitewashed pumpkin in back is wooden. I'm really starting to like the white/creme color decorations and am considering more for Christmas and Winter decorations. 

I found this sweet lamp on sale on the clearance rack at Bed, Bath and Beyond at the waterfront while I was in the Pittsburgh area. One of my sisters already owned one so I knew how pretty it is. It is great for adding ambient light to a dark corner.

This is what it looks like with the lights on. Each light is a flower shape. The branches are bendable so they can be arranged in a variety of ways. I think this tree will work well not only for Fall, but also at Christmas and then afterward for Winter decor. 

Now, this is what I'm using for a simple Fall wreath. I picked up two pine cone and leaf garlands on the $3 shelf at Target the other day. I simply interwove the two garlands together and shaped them into a circular shape, then hung it on the door. I think this looks OK, but it would probably be better if I bought a plain foam wreath, covered it with fabric and then wove these garlands around it. But, I'm OK with this as is for now.

Finally, I want to show you this pretty quilt I picked up at a shop I love to go to when I visit my hometown in West Virginia. The store is called Mulberry Lane. I was attracted to the pretty quilt pattern, but also to the bear figures and paw prints. I just knew how lovely this would look hanging over the banister in my foyer. However, a certain cat (Cassie!) decided to play with it and seemed interested in even wanting to jump up on the banister to explore it. So, this lovely quilt is now a topper on our bed. It's not a full size quilt, it's more of a throw, measuring 50"x60", so it is only a topper on the bedspread. I really liked the way it looked in the foyer but, alas, I don't want my sweet kitty to get hurt by falling off the banister, so to the bedroom it goes! 

Are you doing any Fall decorating at your home? Hope you will take a moment to leave a comment. Your comments make my day! I'll be pinning these foyer decor pictures to my pinterest page. Feel free to pin them, as well, and point others to!

Until Next Time,

Love all your Fall decor - I agree that it's too early for orange pumpkins 🎃 yet! We don't do so
Much Fall decorating over here in England, but I'm learning from my American bloggy friends!

I absolutely love your fall decor. The cream and green pumpkins are great as is the beautiful new lamp. I look forward to seeing how you use the lamp in different seasons/holidays. However, that gorgeous quilt is my favorite, of course! It's so unique using the wedding ring pattern with the insets of the bear and the paw. How creative and lovely!

I always enjoy seeing how you decorate for the seasons! And yes, summer flew by. We had a cooler August too, so I feel like it's really fall here. Bet it's pretty in your area when the leaves change. The first thing I thought when I saw the quilt was how appropriate with the bears you see by your house. And the pumpkins are great. I love the colors. It says fall in an understated way that kind of eases you into the season. As for retirement, I am so looking forward to it. I'm currently planning some ways to make it happen next year. So much I want to do when I have more time and less stress!

I wanted to say that I love how you did that wreath! I love the simplicity of it and wouldn't change a thing!

So glad you stopped by from Southamsdarling! Hope you will return frequently!

Debbie Styles Life said...

Thanks, Sharon. I like using Fall items with less orange right now!

Debbie Styles Life said...

Thank you, Karen, for your kind words! I think I will leave the wreath as it is right now. Simple is best, sometimes, right? I'm so excited that retirement is in your near future. I hope it works out for you to go forward with your plans! Take care.

Lovely decor Debbie but I agree I can't believe we are into September already. It will be Christmas decorations before we know it. Thanks for sharing with us at #overthemoon link party and have a great week.
