Happy Fall y'all {Parlor 2017}

Between the time the Halloween decorations come down and the Christmas ones are put up, I normally do some "light" decorating for the Fall season. I do love autumnal colors, but we do not have much of an actual autumn season way down yonder in New Orleans. I tend to stick with an array of pumpkins, pheasants, antlers, and gourds. Seasonal candles go a long way too.

The parlor mantle features two tortoise glass hurricanes, trophies, porcupine quills (I love natural curiosities.), apothecary jars, and horn boxes. I am also loving the cedar wood scent of this Burberry candle. Oooo la la!
The silver turkey is from Timothy De Clue Collection, Seattle.

Turtle shells in a metal-topped jar also adds a Fall touch.

I am also loving the mercury glass pumpkin and foliage in the ceramic urn. Simple and elegant!

Glittered gourds fill the terrarium, and pheasant feather fill an agate vase. An acorn pillow by artist Lisa Papa is another perfect touch.

Have you read or looked at this book yet, Home??? I love it! 

Fall in the Parlor, y'all!


  1. I love your terrarium. It all looks amazing, as usual.

  2. It all looks so rich and inviting, Ron. I have a velvet leopard print pillow just like yours!

  3. I haven't seen the HOME book yet, Ron. The book with your home in it is one of the few books that I refuse to part with-and still enjoy immensely.

    Love everything. I don't think I have ever seen a collection of turtle shells before though. How do those come about...the turtles die and someone finds the shell?

    Have a great week, Ron. xo Diana

  4. Good evening, Ron! Love everything as usual! Have a great evening! Cheers! xoxo

  5. The custom acorn pillow is the perfect seasonal touch...luv it!

  6. You live in such good taste and style, Ron! After you retire, you really should entertain the idea of having a little shop or booth somewhere. That book - hard to find but after combing the internet, I managed. The preview looks and sounds wonderful. Dear Santa......1.) HOME

  7. I love your classic style, the reason I joined your blog. Elements carefully placed and yet totally usable---form and that!


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
