Autumn Touches

I thought I'd share some quick pics of the Fall decor I've added to the house the past couple of weeks. (While I post this, there is snow falling outside! )

The above is my entry way. I've actually done a little makeover in this whole area. I painted the large mirror black, and added my columns and glass top that I had in my storage area. The painting is one of my latest - in my chandelier series, and the urn was brought in from the other room . The white pumpkins add that subtle autumn feel here.
I'm not usually a huge fan of pumpkin orange, but I had to buy this deep orange/red colored pumpkin. It is a beautiful color.On my fireplace mantel, I switched my artwork, and added another painting also from my chandelier series. In my iron urns, I added branches that I spray painted white. I purchased the Chinese Lanterns from Whole Foods. I love the delicate tissue-like look of these Chinese Lantern branches.

Now that I've added these Autumn touches, I am in the mood for Christmas decor, especially with the snow falling outside!

and I have to say I think the Readers Digest book are very pretty - they have the great bindings. I would def use them in a bookcase too!
