For the love of Owls

During the summer months I tend to be a minimalist in terms of my home decor.  Generally, I love to decorate according to the season, but during the summer we tend to live outside and I don't do much indoors.  Now, as we are gearing up for the Autumn season, I find myself looking through my Fall and Halloween themed decoration which I have on hand.

I have a lot of decorations which I really love to use during the months of September, October and November, and I've already started to bring some of those out for display.  Yet, I've found a great love for cutesie owls, and I enjoy growing and adding to my new obsession.  This Fall I am planning on adding a couple of simple items to my small, but beloved collection.

While I love the look of owls, I certainly don't want it to become overwhelming within my home.  I want to use owls as a cute accent and not a focal point. 


So, I pick my pieces carefully.

Right now, I have three small handmade owl cushions lining the arm of my loveseat.  Next, I am thinking of adding one large pillow, such as the one I posted above.  Another option that I am toying with is purchasing a throw blanket to drape over the back of the sofa or loveseat.

Finally, I had found a cute burlap owl, door hanger - which I may try to recreate.  But, first a trip to the craft store would be in order.  Seeing that I am not a very crafty person it is a little unnerving to invest in the materials for a project which may or may not work out as planned. 

Do you have fun with decorating and do you like to take inspiration from the season?

I love those pillows! What a great theme! I do add a few seasonal accents but I can't say I'm overly talented in this area!

Love that pillow! I have recently fallen in love with Owls. I do not decorate our home to suit the seasons. I just decorate for holidays like Christmas and Halloween. And even then, I do not put a lot of stuff out.

I love owls! That pillow is adorable!

You obviously have mad home decor skillz. Can't really say the same for myself. Me - it's all about clean, simple and uncluttered. That said, I do enjoy the standard Christmas and Hallowe'en stuff, especially now that we're raising a family!

LOVE the pillows! I too love owls, but also wouldn't want it everywhere I looked in my home lol. I don't have any owl accents yet, but want some! :) I actually have some safari accents here and there though ;)

Those pillows are so cute. I don't really decorate eith the seasons except for hockey season lol then I pull out the hockey blankets and pillows for the couch but that doesn't count. So I guess I just decorate for Christmas as I am a Santa fanatic!

I love to decorate in sports memorabilia because it works for every season, all year long! Unfortunately my wife disagrees... :(

I love the owls too. I think its going to be the theme for my daughters first birthday. As for decorating my own house... yeah I need help.

Owls are awesome, My cousin makes a ton of owl stuff to sell at craft shows and it is always a "hoot" (sorry)...but everyone loves them, they sell out fast!

Owls are one of my big favorite themes too. The mascot of my kids school is the Hibou so weblike to find all kinds of owls and send to school.

I love the owl theme that is going on this year. I've almost bought things several times but resist since I just changed home deco recently, for the billionth time!

OMG, I'm in love with those owls. What a great theme for the season. I usually change my colors according to the season. IF I get around to it!
