OrAnGe

creative title, huh...

since everyone else is doing posts on fAll...
i didn't want to be left out...
figured i should as well...

our living room has been transformed quite a bit since last year.
we live in a not.so.big townhouse.
but we try to make the most out of our space.
turns out not much decorating was needed this FALL.
our accent color in our living room is ORANGE.

pictchas for ya'll to view....
our couches have orange pillows and dot pillows
with orange and red polka dots.
i would like to add some browns to this arrangement.
it seems a little bright for fall
but i love all the orange and red.

tray with flowers, remotes and of course my
shredding equipment!
weights and the pink xbox remote (for the dvd).

below big orange vase with stick things.... ladder shelves with orange accents... orange cubes....
these little guys are hanging out on the lil black table.... table decor....
the filler.... i plan to add more decor but i wanted to post a few pics.
i will be adding lots O pumpkins!
also adding a few things to our front entry way.
i'll post more pics after.

btw, orange is a weird word...
i keep thinking i've spelt it wrong....

here is a pic of our living room from last year.... don't laugh, you know you love that floral furniture!

so freakin' cute! i've never really been an orange fan but i have to say, it's starting to grow on me!

that floral furniture took me straight back to my grandma's house circa 1991 hahaha. but don't worry, if you had a peek under our couch covers you would be laughing twice as hard.

xoxo!

I love your living room!! It's so cute! Don't you love how, when you say or write a word over and over, it starts to sound/look so strange? :)

Mrs. Potts said...

Very cute! I like all the little details.
I usually have to look at "the" several times before I realize I've spelled it correctly.

Jorden and Kristin said...

your old floral furniture is about as awesome as my "mexican winter" furniture that we promptly got covers for! lol but i love all the improvements and the fall decor! I just started our decor I feel so behind!

Adorably Distracted... said...

Southern Champagne Wishes said...

I think I still have very similar floral couches being stored upstairs at my house!

Seriously, though, I love what you've done with that room! It seems like it gets a lot of light, which is always a plus. I love the mixture of everything - and am especially crazy about those orange cubes and the table in between them. Adorable!

Angela said...

Wow you have made a wonderful transformation from last year to this year. I love the orange accents and your little wood witch, frankenstein and pumpkin cutouts are just adorable. Where did you find those?? This makes me want to post my fall decorations now, ha!!! I know I change my blog alot but I'm probably going to leave the layout alone now until Thanksgiving comes around, we'll see it's very tempting to change it before then:) We just cooked in ours too last week we did a pot roast and it is finally cooling off and staying cool. Today it hasn't even hit 70 woohoo. You and your hubby are so cute together!!! and so is your little fur baby!!!!
