I’m back today with the remainder of my little “Early Fall Tour”. Welcome back! 🙂
When I decorate for fall – or any season really – I try to do so in a way that will reflect the season, give my space a feeling of warmth and coziness, and most importantly, still be livable and practical for our day to day life. In other words, I don’t want to be moving hoards of pumpkins every time I want to sit down at the table for dinner, or peering around a giant botanical arrangement on the coffee table when I settle in to watch Bachelor in Paradise on Monday night (don’t judge – you know you watched it too. Can you believe what Kirk did to Carly?!?). 🙂
For the most part, what you see in my photos is exactly what you would see if you walked into my house this afternoon (ok, if I’m being honest you would most likely also see little clouds of dog hair all over too). I love a beautifully staged room just as much as anyone, but I want to inspire you with simple and attainable ways to refresh and enjoy your home throughout the year – ways that will be easy to live with and maintain, but still feel beautiful and comforting. Because let’s face it, the spaces in magazines and catalogs are gorgeous – but not always practical for day to day life.
With that in mind, we’re moving into the dining room today. I kept it very simple in this room – a few pops of fall color, the swap of a pillow or two, and done. 🙂
I changed out the pillows on our little dining bench for a cozy, fall colored plaid pillow, paired with a perfect fall sentiment.
I loved the warm, lighter wood tones I used in the living room, so I incorporated the same look into the dining room with a trio of wood candleholders for a simple centerpiece.
Over on the buffet, I popped a few fall branches into my favorite glass bottle (a little wood slice underneath never hurts!) and filled a dough bowl with apples.
The growler is from a local brewery back home – the brown color is perfect for fall, and I love to display anything that ties back to our hometown. 🙂
For the most part, I tend to keep seasonal decorating to the first floor, but I added a little fall flair to our bedroom too…
I hope you enjoyed the tour – if you missed Part 1, you can read that here. As we get deeper into fall, I’ll be adding and changing things – you know how it goes. 🙂
So, have you started decorating for fall yet? I keep finding myself being drawn to orange and brown this year for whatever reason – what fall colors are you into this season? Share with me below!
