Fall Living Room Update

Sometimes we get so enamored with our decor we may stick with the same look a little too long. Sure we’ll break out a few pumpkins at Halloween, and go a little crazy with Christmas decorations, but other than that we don’t change things around too much. After adding a few bright colors to her couch this past summer, Caitlin thought she’d make a few subtle changes to her living room for fall. She decided to create a cozy, neutral environment perfect for quiet nights at home and the upcoming festive holiday season. Read on to see what she changed — all on a budget!
