This year’s fall porch decor takes a decidedly softer take on the season with an emphasis on subtle autumn colors. Fairytale and white pumpkins, along with mums in faded seasonal tones combine to create a porch with a soft, but still traditional, take on the season.
Fall. The season of cozy. And probably my favorite!
I mean, who doesn’t like cozy pillows and throws, falling leaves, and yummy soups and pumpkin lattes? There is such a special feeling in this season. It’s the start of football. And school. And of course, sweater and boot weather!
I mentioned earlier this week that I start my fall decorating with the kitchen, but the second spot I typically choose to decorate is the mantel! I don’t usually do much on the mantel for spring or summer, but in the fall and at Christmas, I like to make it feel special and bring in some natural elements of the season.
Every season has it’s own special feel, but fall is definitely a favorite of mine. There’s just something about the coziness of the season that really speaks to my homebody nature. Give me some yummy soup and a cozy throw and I’m as happy as can be!
Every year it seems summer sneaks up on me a bit. At least when it comes to the outdoors. A few weeks ago I added some summery pillows to the living room, and freshened up the kitchen and family room with blues and whites and some seasonal decor.
But the backyard was another story! It was still a mess from the winter; with dirty furniture, lots of leaves and debris, and of course, dead plants in every pot! 😉
I can hardly believe it’s summer. Well, maybe not officially. But Memorial Day has come and gone and it’s June, so in my world, it’s summer! And with summer comes a strong desire to lighten, brighten and otherwise bring in the season. Do you feel that too? Heavy decor or dark, moody colors just don’t feel right. The summer season has a lightness about it and I want my home to reflect that.
