Vintage Lovers Fall Living Room
Fall decorating doesn’t mean you have to run out and buy a patch of pumpkins or a field of mums. I love using what I have and displaying vintage finds in unexpected ways. I’m setting a fall mood with warm colors and time worn pieces. I also gathered up all of my vintage landscapes and put almost every single one in this room. Grab a pumpkin spice latte and come on in for a tour of my vintage lovers fall living room.
Sushi’s been wearing nothing but leggings since March (oh wait, that’s me!) so she was excited to get all dolled up for you.
I love mixing old and new and collecting all the things! I like to switch my finds out seasonally and find new ways to display them. It makes me feel like I just went shopping when I haven’t spent a dime.
The mantel is a natural place to start seasonal decorating and it doesn’t get easier than leaning a few paintings against the wall.
I have been collecting old landscape paintings for over 15 years and just found another great one the other day at the thrift store (that my sister told me not to buy. I am not convinced we are related)!
Can you hear the leaves crunching beneath the vintage artists model’s feet?
The room feels so cozy since I placed my sofa and daybed across from each other.
Everything on my coffee table is old and worn including books that were my dads. Feathers stand in for flowers in a vintage teak ice bucket that’s missing a lid (if it had the lid it would go for over 200 times what I paid for it).
I love this polished stone grape cluster that was in my parents house when I was growing up.
Here, I combined two of my favorite things, vintage landscapes and gallery walls, to create this unique wall of art.
I love picture ledges for easily switching up the look of a wall. The floral still life on the top right is wood inlay and each color is a different piece of stained wood! I threw in a round art pottery platter dated Cork, Ireland 1968.
In the past, I would have filled that big green basket on top of the armoire with something but as I get older, I find I like a less cluttered look and think the metal basket looks great on its own.
Every room needs a plant … and a gnome!
A quick and easy update to my rattan daybed was wrapping the black cushion in a leopard print throw blanket. I consider leopard a neutral that goes with anything!
These open shelves are perfect for displaying even more collections.
My antique wallpaper pasting table folds up and has a handle so it could be easily carried from job to job.
These are a few of my favorite things including more vintage landscapes.
It’s so fun having reminders of those who lived before us and the engravings on these loving cups tell a story including that of Edith and Helen, 1916 doubles tennis champions at their country club!
The pipe collection, displayed in a glass jar, belonged to my dad and the smell of pipe tobacco always brings back so many childhood memories.
Kelly has a little lamb and her name is Sushi who thinks this curly knit sweater makes her look chubby but I think she looks adorable. Now that my girls have gone back to school, I have obviously slid into madness.
I’ve been having so much fun decorating for fall in a non traditional way and I’m doing it slowly so I can enjoy the process. I can’t wait to share even more in the coming weeks.

You can take the girl out of Jersey but you can’t take the Jersey out of the girl even if she moves to Texas!
SO TRUE, KELLY
🙂 maybe you’ll be back one day!
Oh my gosh, Sushi in her knit sweater just made my day…she’s a beauty! Such a cozy vibe for fall, creative and authentic, so pretty, thanks for sharing!
You’re so sweet Laurie and you made my (and Sushi’s) day!
You have so many great pictures, i love all the pretty scenery in them that reminds me of Fall, you have so many great collections to look at. Sushi just look stunning in her new outfit and looks so warm and snuggly. Thanks Kelly it all looks so nice.
If it was up to Sushi, she would be running around in her birthday suit all day long! Hope you have a great weekend Marlene.
I always love the way you move things around, and they always look so great in different ways! You inspire me me to pull my vintage things out of the old boxes I brought them home in and use them! Love that wallpaper table!! Do you think it could be used as a desk, or it it too tall? I need a desk and that is so cool. And last but not least! Sushi photos make my day. Such a cutie. 😜
And OMG my mom had a purple set of grapes on our coffee table. Lol. Wish I had them.
I think the wallpaper table is a bit too high and it’s not the sturdiest thing for a desk Becky! I hope you do pull out your vintage finds and put them out where you can enjoy them. Have a great weekend and hope you find a grape cluster at the thrift store soon!
Ok Sushi looks like a doll. Oh my god, she might kill you though, lol. Love it all. The landscape paintings are amazing. It’s a warm and cozy space!
Poor little Sushi! She has to put up with my nonsense even more now that my girls are at school!
Everything you’ve done so far rocks! My favorites are the gallery wall and the german train sign behind the loving cups. It’s really a cool piece, notl only because it’s a unique sign, but it’s artfully and somewhat stealthily displayed. If you ever decide to um… divest yourself of it, I’d appreciate the opportunity to rehome it. Look forward to the rest of your fall decorating.
You’ve got an eagle eye Keith! My dad’s friend gave him that long ago and it’s double sided! I don’t think I’ll be letting it go any time soon.
I love waiting to see how you decorate for each season. Especially using your collections and doing something different every year. Sushi just looks adorable in that sweater.
I am having fun this year because I’m not rushing to do it all at once. Sushi sends hugs Hope!
I love Sushi in her beautiful sweater. I have also always liked outdoor scenes in vintage oil paintings, lovely collection and beautifully displayed. Well done!
Kelly, you have such a great eye for grouping treasures together. You scored big with the antique wallpaper pasting table!
I love the paintings, the feathers, but I have to say sweet Sushi is my favorite. Thst sweater is just precious!
Sushi always steals the show!
