Do you have all your Fall decorations up yet? This is my favorite time of year to decorate! And this year I loved the results so much that I decided to share a little fall home tour with you.
I am not a decorator. And my husband would say that I have too many knick knacks. But making the house look pretty is important to me! Plus it makes me smile. And everyone wants their house to make them smile, right?
Normally when I decorate for Fall, I decorate in a Fall Overload style with leaves, pumpkins and details everywhere, and usually in oranges and reds. This year I toned it down a little. I stuck with a more neutral pallet, and where there are oranges and reds, I kept it minimal.
So enjoy the tour!
The fireplace mantle is pretty neutral, except for my DIY arrangement in the urn. I’m not the best arranger, but it turned out decent.
I kept it pretty simple in the kitchen. I just have one space where it’s decorated. I placed a little sign from the Target Dollar Spot, and then gathered a few silver items – a candle from Anthropologie and my tarnished ice bucket, with a napkin inside. (I like silver pieces tarnished a little!)
I’m most proud of how the dining room turned out! I purchased that table centerpiece at At Home a few weeks ago, but it looks fairly simple to make. I cobbled together the smaller arrangement, which sits on my buffet. Not a whole lot of reds and oranges here.
My china cabinet is so cute! That was a Craigslist score. I decided to display my Fall dishes and these acorn soup bowls that I have. It was pretty and practical.
One of the quickest ways to add decor ANY time of year is with a wreath. I showed you last year how to make a DIY raffia wreath! This year inside, I stuck with a few leaf wreaths. I placed one on the bathroom door (so guests can find the door easily!) and another over a small entryway table.
Finally, dressing up tabletops is my favorite thing to decorate! It’s almost impossible to decorate coffee and side tables when there is a toddler, but I never put anything on a table that is precious or expensive. I repurposed things in my house to create a few spots, like the lantern with the pumpkin and raffia. I also took my favorite rustic plate standish thing and put some faux pumpkins, raffia and a pheasant candle in it.
I hope you enjoyed a little peak at my favorite decorated spots in our house! Decorating for Fall is my favorite from the whole year, and I may just put it all back up after Christmas.
What’s your favorite way to decorate for Fall? Are you a Fall Decor person or a Halloween person?
