There’s nothing quite like fall. The crisp air, fires, falling leaves, cozy outfits, and warm snuggles, the smells and the food. It’s all very nostalgic isn’t it? September hits and I’m ready to feel like I’m walking through Stars Hollow in Gilmore Girls. You know the reference, right?
There’s no other time I love to decorate for (other than Christmas) than autumn. The warmth and textures, coziness, and extra layers just really feels so much more inviting and I love it. It’s really sweet looking back at years past there’s so many commonalities- I love a little warmer tones and loads and loads of texture. Here’s to this year’s fall home tour!
For me, it’s all about creating moments of peace and little pockets of coziness. But even more so in the fall. When the air is crisp, days are short, and a roaring fire with a cozy blanket can create a soft place to land. That’s what inspires my decorating for fall.
From the porch to the entryway I always like to make the entrance really inviting. This year I kept it simple with my favorite green and white pumpkins, dried olive wreath, and some beautiful white mums. We wrapped up this entryway refresh project just in time for fall and I’m so glad. See the picture/box moulding DIY here.
The kitchen might just be my favorite to style for fall. I love loading up on florals and branches, displaying all the pretty produce, and breads for soups. It’s so simple but truly functional, and feels like autumn. Smells like pumpkin and cinnamon every weekend in the fall. Always with pumpkin bread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, and muffins. My boys love it.
The living room is definitely a space I style and re-style a lot, and one I really love bringing in all the touches for fall. This space houses all my favorite projects like our built-ins, concrete fireplace, beams, it’s just the coziest and so beautiful!
I haven’t changed much in our primary bedroom but I’m hoping for a winter project in here, maybe even before the holidays. I love my neutral bedding with all the cozy layers. The secret to a really fluffy bed is folding the comforter in thirds, adding a quilt, and a knit or another heavy texture bed blanket.
Into the dining room, I keep it really simple for everyday, but I love a pretty tablescape moment. My Thanksgiving tablescape will be coming to the blog soon.
This year I created a large statement arrangement with a mix of fresh, faux, and dried florals. It adds so much texture and was simple to make.
We spend most of our time in the family room together. I don’t go crazy in here but a few cozy throws, and simple coffee table styling is all it needs. Fall decorating doesn’t have to be over the top or even hard. Dried florals and a beautiful worn vase really goes so far!
I hope this shows you it doesn’t take an overhaul to create a warm and cozy home for the season! Time goes so fast but I’m soaking up all the best that fall brings before it gets really cold here in the Midwest.
