I have a slight addiction for changing the decor in my house on a regular basis. Although I buy things at discount stores like HomeSense or items on sale at other stores, it eventually becomes quite pricey to keep updating your home. We moved into our new home just over a year ago so there is always something new to decorate in my opinion! In an effort to save a bit of money (and stop driving my husband crazy) I have decided to focus more effort on altering the mantel above the fireplace for the different seasons and holidays.
Here is my homage to autumn mantel style:
The picture hanging above the mantel is a mosaic. As a result, any light shining in the house reflects off the glass tiles. It’s a stunning piece of artwork purchased from Pier 1 Imports. If I were a professional photographer then perhaps I could have captured its beauty but alas I am not. You will see a more detailed photo of the tiles below.
The large vases and their foliage were purchased at HomeSense as was the centerpiece and the candle in the center of it. The straw pumpkin, gold lantern and two embellished candles in the centerpiece were purchased at Pier 1 Imports. The gourds are from Frootogo, a local orchard located in Waterdown, Ontario.
