A Cozy Fall Family Room

Last week I shared with you how I decorated our kitchen for Fall.  Today I’m continuing the tour of our home to show you our cozy Fall family room.  I’m all about being cozied up on the couch under blankets in pajamas and watching Hocus Pocus (which I’ve seen at least three times this season).  And yes, for a change of technique, I’ve taken some of the pictures for this post with my phone.  Sorry if they look a bit funny.  🙂 Candles are a great easy way to create a warm atmosphere.  You’ll see that I placed them placed around the room, …
