Happy Fall Y’all! I feel socially obligated to say that at least once. So there. I said it. Here’s the thing. I know ‘fall’ is a huge deal in the decor world. It’s the start of Pumpkin Spice and all things rustic and cozy and indoors and warm and plaid and pumpkin spice – Did I mention pumpkin spice? In honour of that, today we’re sharing some tips for simple and easy fall decor!
I decided to show you how I do fall. Simple and Easy Fall Decor. Simple because I don’t have lots of fall stuff and easy because – well, I’m lazy and I don’t ever want to put too much effort into seasonal stuff. I started my decorating with my galvanized flower vase, my faux fur rug on the back of the couch and, as always, a giant catchall wicker basket. (I have a hyacinth woven one, but I also LOVE this metal one!)
The most effort I put in this year was moving our sunroom couch beneath the window. Remember back when I gave you my tips for refreshing your decor without spending? Moving the couch was one of my main tips. I pulled out my cozy faux fur throw, some sparkly Ikat pillows (here are ones that are similar) and some taper candles in my vintage candlesticks. I love candles. Love. Love. Love ’em.
And pinecones. I love pinecones. You can get them at the dollar store and they instantly make a room feel cozy and ‘fall-y’. I’m happy that my DIY Storage Ottoman is versatile. It seems to work with almost any season. I remember being worried about the bold plaid – but I especially love it for fall. Speaking of fall-y, something about the season lends itself to stained wood and dried foliage. These hydrangeas are from our garden.
I like blues for fall. Lots of people gravitate towards earth tones, but have you ever noticed how blue the sky is in October? So blue. So blue = fall-y. I’m LOVING these earthenware pots….But dark blue also plays really nicely with green and orange. I got these pumpkins in the Target dollar bin. RIP Target Canada. May you live forever through these cheap and sorta weird pumpkins. It’s also easy to decorate for fall using books. It’s the season when we like to curl up right? So use that to your decor advantage. Books in ALL THE ROOMS!
In the dining room, I deliberately added some sparkle. Little LED lights with a battery pack in some mason jars surrounded by books, burlap and pinecones. Perfect for those evenings when we linger over a glass of wine and stare out into the nothingness – because in the fall, it gets dark early and you can’t see out the windows. Sparkly! Oh and in case you’re wondering, we still totally use and love our upholstered dining buffet! It’s been one of the best furniture flips we’ve done, especially because we planned the entire thing around where to put our turkey platter. <— Priorities, people. We have priorities. 😛
Dudes, I didn’t even hang a wreath! Saving that for Christmas time 🙂 Back on Sunday with more on our KonMari Journey. This week it’ll be all about decluttering craft supplies and paperwork. Hope you have a fabulous weekend.
