1 FALLING LEAVES FALL MANTEL-Give your mantel a nod to fall. Neutrals, white pumpkins, burlap leaves and other autumn elements.

You know it’s fall when the mantel at StoneGable sports white pumpkins and falling leaves! Oh, yes! StoneGable is being slowly transformed and getting ready for a few fall tours in just a couple weeks! I love all the orange and saturated color that fall brings but for early fall I’m showing off the softer side of fall with a neutral mantel. 


Today is HOME STYLE SATURDAY and I’m sharing one of my most popular mantels!


Here’s the spring mantel. I styled it with an easy transition from summer and fall in mind. Instead of recreating the wheel, I just tweaked it!

I changed out tulips for burlap blooms…

I added more books and white pumpkins…


And hung a fun-fun-fun burlap and book page leaf garland!

Hope my fall mantel has inspired you today!!!

  23. Love the leaf garland and the neutrals.

  24. Looks fantastic! Love the neutral Fall decor.

  25. I still like these leaves. Is it the teacher in me that likes the old fashioned machine that cut out shapes before the fancy machines of today?!! I think I did this a few years ago but made my leaves a bit simpler??? But I did not save them!!! I hope I have time to make them again. I still like them. Thank you for sharing.

  26. When I look at your room designs I would just love to sit in your inviting settings and read a book with a nice cup of tea. I love your ideas because they are possible to recreate at an affordable price. Thank you for sharing all your helpful hints.
