decorating my home with fall artwork

As much as I love summer and was hanging on to every last bit, I finally had to admit that fall was truly here. The days are now cool, leaves are changing color and falling to the ground, and we've had to put another blanket on our bed to keep warm at night. I'm actually wearing socks most of the time now, too. You see, I love being barefoot. I am not a sock or shoe person. If I'm wearing socks, that means my feet are cold. 

As I do near the end of every September, I dragged my big plastic storage bin of fall decor upstairs from the basement and started putting some fall touches in my home.

As a member of the Wayfair Homemaker program, I have been compensated for this post. All ideas and opinions are completely my own.

One thing I've never had in my fall decor stash is artwork. I decided to change that up this year. I wanted something with muted colors that would look good in my living room or bedroom. After looking through the terrific variety of artwork from Wayfair, I chose this metallic forest print. I love the colors in this print and the dreamy look of the trees. I propped the artwork up on the buffet against the vintage window and then created a simple vignette.

 In the morning when the sun comes in through the beveled glass in my front door, the beams dance all over the artwork.

Another thing I really liked about the quality of this canvas artwork is that the print wraps around the sides.

As much as I liked this artwork in the living room, I decided to play around and try the print in my bedroom. I already had the two gray circles (from Hobby Lobby) above the bed - with nothing in the middle! I had tried a couple of things in the middle of the circles and they just didn't work out. I knew something would eventually come along.

It's easy to change out artwork when you use Command Strips instead of putting nail holes in your walls. With this size print (24" x 24"), I can use it in the living room, bedroom, or hallway.

So now I'm liking this artwork both in my living room and bedroom! It was hard to make a decision, but I'm going to keep it in the bedroom since I really needed something on the wall between the two gray circles. I can easily change up the buffet in the living room with other decor.

Do you use fall artwork in your home?


  1. Beautiful Melanie....and what a wonderful way to embrace fall.

  2. That is a beautiful piece of art, Melanie! It looks pretty wherever you put it! And yes...I do use fall artwork, too!

  3. Your canvas art piece is beautiful. I love those mornings or afternoons when the sunlight hits in the house like your pictures shows. So comfy and pretty. Love how you are decorating for fall.

  4. I love the colors and soft focus of this print. I don't change out artwork much but maybe I should!! I haven't even started with Fall decor but maybe this weekend.

  5. It's very pretty, Melanie. I've seen that painting on their site.

  6. Great choices love the art work over the bed!

  7. It's a very pretty print and looks great in both places. Your bedroom is beautiful, if you have ever showed it to us before I don't remember. It looks so restful, the way a bedroom should look.
    Have a sweet weekend.
    Connie :)

  8. I've been looking at some of Wayfair's artwork for months as I still need something in my guest room and my master bath. Nothing has quite jumped out at me yet though....I shall keep looking!

  9. What a beautiful addition to your fall decor 😍

  10. Love the art - I would never tire of looking at those trees/colors.

  11. Love how you decorate. I will decorate closer to Halloween, I love the holiday so much.

  12. No, I surely don’t change out my artwork by season. But you made a lovely choice with that piece! I did however add some shelves to my craft room so that I could swap out some of my own projects and art without putting holes in the walls. Should have done this ages ago!

  13. I have too much stuff on my walls to easily change anything out. When folks visit, they always think there's something new because there's just too much to take in at one time. I change pillow covers and the throws on the couches and chairs when I need a color change. And when I really want to mix things up, I move furniture around, but really can only do that in the living room. The painting you chose has a peaceful, calm quality that I know you are always looking for. :) Happy October!

  14. What a wonderful painting! I have a painting done by a local artist of the mountains in fall here in NC. But it stays up year round above the fireplace. It looks extra special in the fall!
