Autumn Living and Dining Room Updates~

I love switching up my decor for the seasons, and today I wanted to share with you how I've freshened up my house for Autumn.

Let's start with the dining room...the changes here are subtle, but in keeping with the season.
I accomplished this with the addition of a few pretty-but-neutral accessories.

I added an old antler, a couple of vintage silver cups, a pretty tan and white vase...and possibly my favorite accessory here - a pretty pumpkin print (I'll tell you more about that in a minute).

Master Bedroom Reveal~

This post is sponsored in-part by Soft Surroundings.

I'm so excited to share my master bedroom with you all today! This room has been a long time in coming.

My favorite color is gray....so my room has a soft and serene palette that is set off by the lovely gray walls.  The color is Stonewall Jackson by Dutch Boy.  The thing that I like about it, is that it is light and that it is a relatively true gray without too much yellow or blue.

The headboard is linen with nailhead trim (see sources below)  I adore it!

Mary Poppins Blogger Party~

A couple of months ago, I had the delightful opportunity to attend the Mary Poppins Blogger Party thrown by several Utah bloggers for our blog readers.  It was a blast!  And today, I wanted to share some of the details.

Not only do I have an infatuation with gold, but I also have an infatuation with the paint-dipped trend.  So in this project, I combined the two.

Here's the low-down on how to get this great look.
