If you haven’t guessed it already, fall is my absolute favorite season. Unfortunately, it always feels like it’s the shortest season of the year. Partly, because it’s the busiest time in our home. Between my husband’s amazing job as a teacher and coach and my seasonal home decor business we are always moving at a pace too quickly to just sit and relax. So, decorating is happening a little earlier than normal. I am slowly adding soft fall touches without going full blown fall.
I wanted to give you an update on the main area I focused on, yesterday. I think it’s the perfect example of not going overboard before fall is officially here. It features what I call “transitional decor,” decorations that you can use all year and move around to create different looks. I added some settle and not so settle fall inspired pieces and textures. As the season officially opens, later on this space may change to really showcase the beauty of autumn and thanksgiving.
I love mixing textures when it comes to design. Adding a weaved basket to hold some extra cozy elements is a great way to blend rough texture with soft ones. It helps draw the eye up, while making a cozy, welcoming environment.
I mixed antique books, a vintage inspired corbel, faux foliage to tie in the above wreath, faux gourds and pumpkins along with a real pumpkin from our own backyard garden. I wanted to bring some of the outdoor beauty of fall to be the show piece in our upstairs family room. I kept it simple and only used what I already had. As the season comes into fruition, this space could change to become even more festive.
I hope as you prepare for the fall season, this post gives you some inspiration. Please let me know what you think by commenting below, or interacting on social media! Give me a follow on Instagram or find more inspiration by following me on Pinterest. As always, make today beautiful!
