Hello sweet friends! Welcome to our Fall Blog Hop!! If you’re coming from Crystal and Cleats, welcome!!
So, it’s finally FALL! The best season of all, if you ask me! It means pumpkins, sweaters, boots, scarves, crisp sunny days! Okay, well maybe that’s what it meant back when I lived in Georgia – now its more so an extended summer, but with pumpkins. Sometimes, I’ll turn on the AC and light me up the fireplace and just pretend for a few minutes 😛
But, even if its still hot as all get out here in SoCal, that doesn’t mean the Fall decor falls by the wayside. In fact, it’s the exact opposite! I’m a bit proponent of fake it ’til ya make it – and Fall decor is no exception! I mean, if I pretend it’s Fall inside, maybe the outside will finally catch up? (A girl can dream, right?!) 🙂
Being that it’s my favorite season, I definitely go all out with the Fall Decor – at least downstairs. Then, our master gets a little pumpkin spice thrown in too, and I’m done! And even though I go a little Fall cray cray, you can add simple Fall touches to your home with one simple trick!
My secret? TEXTURE TEXTURE TEXTURE! Think pumpkins, cozy blankets, and some faux greens and Fall stems! Allow me to explain more (or rather, SHOW more) below! So without further ado, here is a room by room tour of our Fall decor this year!
Our family room is composed of a giant comfy couch and our fireplace, which is really the focal point of our home. But, our home is VERY open concept, so all the rooms kind of blend together downstairs, which meant I had to keep a kind of similar theme. Initially, I wanted all NEUTRALS. But once I got that home, I was craving some of the warmth the traditional Fall colors provide. So out came the rich oranges and reds, and I must say, I haven’t tired of them yet! They just add such a cozy element!
Whether you like option 1 or 2 better, you can see that both have SO much texture. From the blanket to the faux plants to the pumpkins, wood sign (by my amazingly talented friend Emily over at Queen B Home), and burlap leaves, theres no shortage of different textures here. That’s really, to me, what pulls a room together – a combination of different textures all playing off each other and working together!
Here, the faux greenery and Fall stems add he texture, and of course, what is Fall decor (or any decor, if you ask me) without some buffalo check!
So of course, I also have already rotated through two versions of my dining room tablescape. Oops! I love both, but the second version with the pop of blue just hit the nail on the head for me! The deep blue was unexpected, and yet so perfect!
And of course, again – texture! Lots of layers on each place setting = texture for days! Add in the macrame table runner, pumpkins, and those burlap leaves again, and you’ve got texture galore, and a really home-y feeling!
My favorite part of the living room now is my new DIY deconstructed/reconstructed vintage sofa! I’m SO thrilled I got it done in time for the holidays (tutorial coming soon, post One Room Challenge – promise!)
It was just SO fun to decorate this new piece for Fall! In and of itself, it has lots of texture (wood, burlap, drop cloth, throw pillows), so adding to it was easy peasy!
And then of course, there’s the other side of the room, with the fun distressed buffet I found on Facebook Marketplace a few months back!
I actually kept the kitchen fairly understated this year. I figured the rest of the downstairs was decked in Fall, so the kitchen could get a little break! 😀
Similar to the kitchen, I kept the master pretty understated this year – and I always tend to keep things neutral in here because we have a blue rug (not pictured) that can tend to clash with anything else!
Aside from the master, I did throw a few pumpkins in our upstairs nook, because you really can never have too many pumpkins!
So what do ya think folks? Do you want to try to add a bit more texture to your Fall Decor! And no need to spend the big bucks here – go to the Target Dollar spot, grab a blanket scarf or two for $7 and a few $1 suede pumpkins, then head to Michaels or Hobby Lobby (and catch their sales!) for some great Fall stems, and Voila! Fall Decor tackled!
I hope my Fall Decor (and texture trick) will inspire you to add some cozy Autumn touches to your home. And be sure to head on over to Hayden at Two Paws Farmhouse for some more amazing Fall decor inspiration!
