Early Fall Entryway: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart}

This post is sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart!  I am so excited to be a part of the BHG Live Better influencer network and look forward to sharing ideas, updates to my home and their affordable products with you! All opinions are my own. 

Fall weather hasn't quite arrived in the Dallas area just yet, but if I waited for the weather to dictate when it was okay to break out the pumpkins, it might be close to Christmas!  So, with that said, it was time to add a few touches of fall to my entryway despite our summer like temps!  Since I am a neutral loving gal and do not use the typical colors of fall, I decided a touch of metallic gold would be a fun way to jazz up my typical neutral scheme!

I found some great stuff from the Better Homes & Gardens line available at Walmart!  

Let's take a look at what this space looked like before...I love what I had here but it was time for a new look.  Don't worry, though, I did not get rid of any of these pieces and you will see them again!

And now  for the new look....

You may notice that I changed furniture in this space!  I am constantly switching things up and when I saw this cute bench, I knew it would be perfect in this space. It was around $100 and super easy to put together.  I really liked that it came with a gray cushion and the metal construction makes it extremely sturdy!  Bonus can also be used outside! 

To add some texture and a touch of coziness, I added these beautiful, textured throw pillows and a cozy, striped throw blanket.  If you have followed me for awhile, you know I am a sucker for fringe!  These pillows are under $20...a total steal!  The striped throw is a great deal as well.  Since my space is so neutral, I love how the stripes add interest!

Subtle metallic touches were added using items like this gold framed mirror.  I love how the shape breaks up all the angles in this room and the subtle gold frame adds some shimmer to my neutrals.  I simply layered a cotton wreath on top of the mirror for a seasonal touch!  

These black, metal baskets were the perfect way to add storage space under the bench...or in this case, a unexpected place for more touches of fall! The metallic gold handles tie in nicely with the mirror!

Another pop of gold was brought in by adding this darling Edison bulb lamp.  The marble base gives it a modern vibe while the gold cage top adds a vintage, industrial feel.  I love mixing vintage items with new items so it was a perfect fit!

I love the way this little entryway nook turned out and the touches of metallic are perfect for fall!

Since my staircase landing is also visible from my entryway, I decided to continue the metallic touches up the stairs....

This pretty, metallic gold lantern is perfect to style with seasonal touches.  For now it holds tiny white pumpkins but it will be easy to transition it for Christmas!  Pinecones, candles, ornaments, bottle brush many options!  I love pieces like this that can be switched up for every season! 

Speaking of lanterns...I couldn't resist these modern, hanging lanterns!  When I saw them, I knew they would be perfect hanging from my vintage mechanic's rack!  Another mix of modern and vintage!  These lantern are another item that I can be easily updated for each season!

Just a few simple touches and my entryway is ready for fall!  Now if we could just get some cool fall weather, we would be all set!

What colors do you typically use for fall decor?  Do you prefer more traditional fall colors or do you like to add colors that compliment your existing color scheme?
