Fall Decor in a Log Home

Fall Decor | Creative Cain Cabin I got a little jump start on my Fall decorating and pillow sewing and have finally got around to showing you what I came up with.  If you remember I wanted to introduce a new color, turquoise, a color I thought would never fit into the cabin but as you can see I was wrong.  I didn’t go overboard with the color but did a little color pop with the pillows. 

Fall Decor | Creative Cain Cabin I swapped my slipcovers to Henna and Khaki to give it all a fall feel, and added the yellow and white buffalo check curtains. It always amazes me how just a fabric change can make a room feel so different, but since I did these pics the curtains have another new look. 

Fall Decor | Creative Cain Cabin I am seriously thinking about getting new furniture, I have all the slipcovers they make for mine and I am tired of the colors. I would love a charcoal gray so that may be my next purchase. That’s if I can find the time to shop, with home and school I barely have time to get groceries. Taking 4 classes is a lot of work, for this old gal.  

Fall Decor | Creative Cain Cabin I know Ikea has a big variety of slipcovers but I worry about the quality. I have had my JCPenney Linden Street line for 6 years now and it looks the same as the day we purchased it and the covers always wash up perfectly. The only issue I have is the slipcovers are so hard to put on. I have to pull and tug to get them in place and then take a tylenol for the pain. My hands actually hurt for days after a slipcover change. 

Fall Decor | Creative Cain Cabin I really love to have a fresh new look several times throughout the year so slipcovered furniture is for me. If you would like to know how to preserve your pumpkins and gourds for fall decorating, I reveal my secret here

  1. Hi Dawndie! Oh, I’ve just gotten to a place where I can actually visit my sweeties. Your living room looks wonderful and I love your subtle touches of fall! I like your slipcovers but I know how it is we get a little tired of our furnishing. Your pillows look wonderful. Hope you’re doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;:)

    1. Shelia, My life has been crazy and what I miss most is visiting everyone. The only way to keep up is to quit sleeping, I guess.

  2. Your room is just perfect for fall. I don’t think I’ve ever noticed how gorgeous your floor is!! Your couch looks great to me but I understand about getting tired of things. I love that slipcover look but don’t think I’d have the patience to wash and replace the slipcovers – it’s such a good idea though.

    1. Stacey, Our floors are in need of some TLC they are just cheap pine wide planks but are so scratched up from the dog. I guess at some point we will need to replace them.

  3. 4 classes! That is quite the load for the beginning of going back to school. Best of luck as you pursue your dreams!

    1. Barb, I have a constant neck ache from carrying the backpack and can hardly keep up with everything. I think next term I will do less classes. Thank you for the encouragement.

    1. Thank you Kris, I’m so glad I got the slipcovers changed that was hanging over my head and it’s nice to have a new color in there.

  4. I love your pops of turquoise. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate, sweet friend. xo Laura

    1. Laura, My plate is running over for sure. Next term I will take fewer classes in hopes of keeping up better.

  5. I love your room…and the pop of turquoise is a-w-e-s-o-m-e! I’m loving my new slipcovered furniture & it is perfect for people like me who love to change things up frequently! For now, I just have the oatmeal coloured covers..but it’s wonderful to know I can switch them out anytime I feel the urge (although I’m loving them and I too have introduced turquoise into our family room!)
    Our master bedroom is painted turquoise…with lime green punches of colour…who knew they looked so great together? And I’m seeing turquoise more & more with orange, lime green, even orange!

    1. Charlotte, I love turquoise and orange together. I have more of the burnt orange but it fits well with my home. I would love a dark grey slip but mine doesn’t come in that color so that’s why Im thinking of going with a different brand.

  6. Love the turquoise. The little pumpkins look great in the bowl too.

    1. Thank you Pam, I am enjoying the new color.

  7. Your room looks wonderful for fall, Dawn. I really like your galvanized bucket with the flowers on your pretty turquoise table!

    1. Thank you JoAnne, I get those buckets from a friend that owns a maple syrup place. When they get old she gives them away.

  8. Your living room looks lovely and the turquoise adds a great pop of color. I love the light, airy look you’ve created. I have an almost-white sofa. I love it because i can change the look of the room with throws, pillows and accessories without having to change slip covers. Those days are over for me.

    1. Susan, I love my lighter colored slips for sure. You are right just fabric can give it a whole new look.

  9. My sofa and cover are from Ikea I haven’t washed them yet but will because they need it, I’ll let you know if it’s easier coming from Ikea.
    Love your home and colors that you use!


    1. Rondell I went last week and looked at the IKEA ones and they look much easier to replace than mine. Can’t wait to hear what you think.
