1- I found this beaded chandelier in an antique shop. My guess would be that it's from the 60s. The hardware was bright and shiny silver when I purchased it and the beads were vibrant orange. I finally decided to spray it with a coat of copper paint to tone it down a bit... There's no electricity hook up above our dining room table, but this gives the feel of a lighting fixture.
2- This card was recently sent to me by my grandma. It was so pretty I had to put it on display! I think I will save it to decorate again with next year as well. Or perhaps even frame it.
3- I recently re-did this wall. It used to be home to a print in a thick black frame and black iron sconces on either side. I think the new mix of various copper and gold frames warms up the wall.
4- Full view of the bureau. Lots of orange and yellow candles. So pretty to light them all at night and see the shadow of the chandelier.
1- This little vintage pumpkin was from my great-grandparents house. I love how dainty it is.
2- The ceramic pumpkin sits on the TV stand where there usually is a candle. It's next to a pewter pitcher (vintage, via my husband's grandma).
3- This plush pumpkin was gifted to me by my grandma while I was in college, to decorate my dorm room. Not sure of it's origin....but I like that it is a baby-friendly decoration!
4- The pumpkin sits on top of the TV next to some (more!) candles and a vintage pitcher. I have a whole table setting worth of these leaf-y pieces. Very 70s.
Thanks for taking a peek into my home! I'm sort of a minimalist when it comes to decor... but I think a few little things can make a space feel special (and festive!) and pretty vintage things certainly do the trick.
