back in August, i shared the no-cost makeover i created in our guest room - 
a cool, refreshing boho mod style in tones of greens and accented with succulents.

no one has come to stay with us since then, but i've just updated the decor...
and even though there isn't a pumpkin or a leaf in sight,
adding the color orange really works to to bring in a 'fall' mood.
(it's still hot here. but it's October now, so i have to accept the inevitable!)

continue reading to see how a few small changes made a BIG difference
 in the way this room feels...

the addition of a fuzzy chenille throw and orange accent pillows cozies up the bed.
as i was doing this, my neighbor put some things on our private fb group for sale - 
i saw the cactus pillows and nearly passed out!

(i added the orange bloom to them - it's just a swish of paint)

behind the bed pillows, you can see patterned orange shams peeking out...
a comforter that matches them is in a basket elsewhere in the room,
with all of them adding another layer of pattern and color without being overwhelming.
(if you go back to see the 'before' photos of this room in the original post,
you'll see HOW overwhelming that busy print can be in this small room!)

a few more simple additions to this side of the room:

above the bed, i made only one small change to the salvaged junk wall art:
i added a few tiny silk flowers to the faux sweater cacti to make them look like blooming cactus.

on the bedside table, a flower was added to one of the faux cacti in a glass vase.

those flowers, and those shown below, came from one stem of faux marigold blooms. cheap!
i simply pulled each bloom off of the stem, and popped it into place on the cacti.
one or two needed a toothpick inserted into the flower to hold them in place.

on the other side of the room, the chair now has an orange accent pillow,
joined by a smaller copy of the one on the bed.

the table beside it was updated by adding two metal pieces that have been spray painted orange...
on top, the painted vase faux succulents are enhanced with a orange flower - 
and the same flowers pop into the three faux Sweet Sweater Succulents beneath the table.

the side table arrangement changed to include a decor book
that features orange in the bound edge and cover photo,
with an orange candle as a finishing touch.

three of my original Sweet Sweater Succulents nestled in a metal basket beneath the table
are joined by the formerly MIA painted ping pong cacti!

on top of the highboy cabinet, another Sweet Sweater Succulent boasts an orange bloom...
and i still really love the wine corks used as vase filler!
(not *just* because we have a lotta' those around here, either.... ;) ) 

it's so easy to refresh a room for the season with small touches!
