*Fall Decorating Ideas @ My Cozy Corner*

Hello Everyone...
I've been studying home decor books for about two years. Before blogging I decorated my house by the seat of my pants. I bought what I liked and when Sweetheart and I remodeled our home in 1990 I did hire an interior designer for some suggestions. I did learn a lot about color flowing from one room to the next. 
NOW I read and purchase design books from the Goodwill and love to study the different styles. 
I have decided I love Country ~ My version of Country. My version of French Country.
Last week I posted My French Country Kitchen.  Go Here
I know I don't have all the elements for a real French Country Kitchen, but I love my kitchen and I can't afford to do any major changes at this time in my life. 
I think about remodeling the kitchen to a more a authentic French Country Kitchen and all I vision is the physical  work that does into a redo, plus the $$$$. 
Then I think a trip to FRANCE would be nice and I can see the real thing. (Good Idea?)
All that said and done~Let's play make believe and decorate My Cozy Corner for Fall. 
The Entrance
At My Cozy Corner the front door opens right into the living room.
A floral arrangement is set on a table to signal hospitality to everyone who enters the front door.
Idea # 1
 Floral Arrangements
Living Room
My country living room is truly designed for comfort. The room is physically welcoming with amply stuffed furniture that encourages people to sink in and relax. There is a grouping to accommodate six people, plus extra chairs if needed. 
Idea # 2
 Comfort and personality with a decorative interest. 

Idea # 3 
Seasonal accents. 

Idea # 4
Exhibition Space
Our fireplace with its mantel is the perfect showcase to display  a theme for our living room and expressing personal interests.

Idea # 5
Consider where beverages will be placed.
 Two coffee tables and four end tables provide  plenty of  places to sit a beverage, snacks  or dessert  anytime of the day or night.  

Idea # 6 
Gather books and place them on tables, mantel or shelves to display well-worn spines.

Idea # 7
Light Sources
 My country living room lighting  is very quaint. Stiffel and vintage lamps, and candles provide lighting for cozy reading corners.

Idea # 8
Make your home a reflection of you. Be fearless and love how you live.
Day-to-day use is a priority for my country living room.
I want to share meandering conversations with loved ones or curl up on a deep-cushioned sofa with a cup of tea while listening to music.

Idea # 9 and # 10

    I love all your fall decorations and "fluffing." The fresh flowers make my heart go pitter-patter. I like all your ideas; it's always helpful to get seasonal decorating inspiration from others. I can't wait to start that very thing at our house.
