I picked it up from Pier 1 a couple months ago (See this post for more details on the purchase.). When I combined it with the orange pillow from August, I knew that blue and orange would be my colors for the month of September.
Here is how the room is currently looking:
I picked up this orange mum from Home Depot for $3.50.
I also picked up a bag of assorted colored mini-pumpkins from Home Depot for about $8.
My new blue ghost chairs ended up working perfectly for this color scheme!
Even my new hard cover design books are orange and blue!
I had the fabric for the blue pillow* in my fabric pile. I love it!
I made a quick leaf garland with twine and faux leaves from the dollar store. Cost: $1.
I even had enough pumpkins left over to make a fall centerpiece for our dining table.
Total cost for the room this month: $12.50 for the pumpkins, mum and faux leaves. Everything else was previously owned or purchased for another reason this month (ie: Lou Lou chairs and decor books).
And to keep it real, here is what our throw pillows and blankets look like most days:
And no, the fake pumpkins in front of the fireplace don't stay there long. Charm was all over them the second I put down my camera. That's his big stuffed dog taking a nap on the pumpkins.
At least it's a white dog. It sort of works in the room:).
*And also, I never did sew a cover for the blue pillow I mentioned above. It only takes about 20 minutes to sew an envelope pillow like I did here, but this month was an especially busy one, so I never got around to it. Maybe next month?
Have a wonderful weekend!
