Don't we all love the cozy and warm feelings fall brings? It's time to snuggle up and make yourself at home. Some fresh greens and a little bit of black grounded by lovely natural elements will liven up your space for the cooler months. I hope you like it! xo — Melissa from Melissa Loves
Contemporary Robert Abbey Delta Apple 22 1/2" High Table Lamp - $166.91
Strong and warm, this lamp would be so beautiful in a white room on a gorgeous light wood table.
Harbor Coffee Table - $1,298
I love the texture of this piece. It's easy and natural and can double as extra seating or a small table to rest a drink on.
Pair of Metal Peacocks - $88
I have loved these nickel-plated iron peacocks for a while now. They're elegant and have such lovely details. They'd be perfect on a coffee table or fireplace mantel.
Mociun Urban Vine Curtain - $89
I love the beautiful pattern in these curtains. They're strong and calming at the same time. I think they would be so pretty flanking those green table lamps!
Vetiver Beaded Tassel Room Freshener - $15
This Vetiver tassel gives off a nice subtle scent, but its real appeal is the great texture it gives to any spot you use it, like a curtain.
Hammocks & High Tea Pillows
Hammocks & High Tea's new fall collection is beautiful, and this green family of pillows is on the top of my wishlist. They make a bright spot on any couch, bed or chair for when it gets a little darker outside.
Balloon Wooden Mobile by Freya Art
I love the simple wood, sweet sentiment and lovely design of this mobile. It's a perfect reminder to keep following your dreams.
Polka Dot Circles Geometric Pattern by OMG Stencils - $27
This dotted stencil is adorable. It would be great anywhere you need a little interest, but I love it for a bedroom. I have it on my radar for when I paint mine in this exact colorway.
Oxidized Oak Mirror - $398
I love it when classics are turned on their head just a little bit. The two different tones of this mirror make it fresh and interesting. It would be great above a mantel or sideboard.
Elephant Ceramic Figurine, Mint Green by Claylicious - $18
This little guy with soft, rounded lines and a weathered green color would be so beautiful nestled among a collection of white goodies or just resting on a lovely ottoman.
Sstop and Think Bunting by Oh, Albatross - $24
This banner is pretty self-explanatory, and the simplicity makes it stand out. It's a great reminder.
Woodfield Brass Tall Solid Brass Match Holder - $29.50
I am constantly on the hunt for something to hold my fireplace matches. This handsome brass number might just be the ticket.
Merletto Rug - $1,199
I love the warm greens in this rug. I would love to use it as a stair runner in my house, but it would look great anywhere. Where would you put it?
Dachshund Letter Holder - $32
This little guy is so great! He is a sweet, retro place to stash your mail, and he will make you smile when you walk in the door. Plus, his black and brass coloring make him a little elegant and sophisticated.
Fletching Bottle Stopper - $12
I love these! I imagine they would look great just lying around, in addition to looking sharp gracing a bottle of wine.
Parson's Desk, Bone Inlay - $599
West Elm's parson's desk is becoming a classic. It's easy and handsome, but I love the new woods and textures they are offering, including this one with bone inlay. It's a lovely surprise when you sit down at your desk.
Midcentury Danish Rosewood Wall Unit Credenza Hutch by Hindsvik - $1,195
A great-looking vintage piece would be wonderful in a study, dining room or living room.
Darling I'm Leaving Stitched and Signed Print by Leah Duncan - $26
Leah Duncan is one of my favorites. She has a way with beautiful colors and fresh patterns, and there is such warmth in all of her pieces. This piece, with its rich greens, makes me think of a tepee with a small fire warming it from the inside.
Little Bird Mobile by Oh, Albatross
This is a sweet and subtle natural element for a corner that needs a little warmth.
