Layered Rugs and Styling the Coffee table for Fall

Layering has always been  part of my decorating style and rugs are no exception!

In the sun room,   I decided to put a small rag rug on top of my large custom rug.    Smooth pattered bottom rug and solid raggy top the combination of textures.       If you missed the post sharing how I made my custom rug,   here's a link to it.......

I like to keep a simple vignette on the coffee table in the sun room and I have this one all 'corralled" in a tobacco basket..     We need plenty of room for our drinks and snacks!.    

All I have in my basket is a floral design using succulents and pumpkins with a white owl to the side of it.  

I've finished decorating the south side of the sun room for fall......if you missed that post,  here is a link to it.....

Now I need to do something with this side of the sun room.  
 I've had my fairy garden up for several years and I can't decide whether to just add some fall touches to it tor pack everything  away and start fresh!

Have you started decorating for fall yet?


  1. So pretty at your house. Love that big white owl. :):) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. Penny,
    Love how you layered the rugs.. I actually am embarrassed to admit that I never thought of doing that. The white owl is precious!!

  3. I love your rocker with the pale yellow on it, almost like a surprise. Grins, Sandi

  4. Love the raggy top rug! Everything looks so pretty!

  5. What a stunning home you have... so, so lovely...

    I'm following you...
    Will you follow me back?

  6. I have never considered layering rugs before. You certainly have some fascinating ideas.

  7. Thanks Penny for linking up and sharing with us at #BloggersPitStop and have a great week.

  8. What a dream house! I LOVE the layered rugs. Mixing up textures is something I love to do. I also love those coffee table pieces!

  9. Very neat! Thanks for sharing at Friday Frenzy Link Party! PINNED

  10. Penny, everything in the room is eye candy! I don't know where to look next! The coffee table vignette is adorable, and that snowy owl! Wow. I never thought of layering rugs, but I like the look. Very pretty room.

  11. I have not once though of layering rugs, but it certainly looks good when you do it. I have been looking for candelabras for a couple of month and look you have an entire mantel of them. So pretty.

  12. Beautiful! Love your mantel, too, and the sweet wicker pumpkin on the coffee table with your owl. Love owls! Once petted a barn owl at a zoo while visiting family in England. Lovely... sigh!

  13. Love the tobacco basket and the owl! Layering is a great technique that adds interest for sure. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

  14. Wow, your DIY rug looks fabulous! I especially love your owl and wood pumpkins. I haven't really started to decorate for fall yet and only have one fall thing out so far.


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
