Simple Fall Kitchen Decor: Warming up with Seasonal Color

I can hardly believe it’s September, school has started, and we are entering my favorite season! Fall can never come soon enough for me. I love everything about it. The changing leaves, pumpkin spice anything, and cooler weather (well, that has yet to come, but you know, at some point!)

It’s a season that calls for more nesting, more cozying, more home. But it’s early, so for now I’m starting with some simple fall kitchen decor. I’m warming things up with copper, fall foliage, apples, and (just a few) pumpkins. Subtle and simple. And easily achieved!

There are lots of inspiring ideas for bringing fall into your kitchen. In fact, I’ll bet you’ll be looking for a few pumpkins of your own after today. Or at least a pumpkin spice latté. 😉

I have to say that as much as I love summer, I love fall even more. And my cool blue and white decor had been out and on display since April! That’s almost six months, and I was definitely ready for a change!

One of the first things I do when the fall season rolls around is to bring out my copper. I love it! It’s amazing how much warmth it adds to a room all by itself. I feel the whole space changes immediately.

I also brought in some fall flowers in soft shades of pink. Pink isn’t something I’ve used in my fall decor before, but I love how it looks with the copper pitcher.

I did find some small Casper white pumpkins the other day and I have to tell you, I about did a dance! I had been calling Trader Joe’s and every market and no one had any yet. Finally, I contacted a local farm and they said yes, and I couldn’t get there fast enough! 

I’m also loving this new wood cake stand! I’m typically using white ones but this is such a nice change. And the texture and warmth really work for the fall season.

My fall kitchen decor always includes some fruit or vegetables that represent the season, and since my apple tree had some ready to pick, I brought them inside and filled a copper pan with them.

And of course, I had to light my new favorite candle! I’ve shared before how much I love candles (I might have a bit of a problem, haha) In fact, I have a whole blog post dedicated to my favorite fall candles of all time here. This Chai Latté fragrance is discontinued now, so I’m back to my all-time favorite Pumpkin Soufflé candle (which is very similar).

The copper kettle is a new find and I’m so in love!! I’d been wanting one for quite awhile and I love the warmth it brings to the kitchen. In fact, it doesn’t matter if it’s vintage or new, there is just something about adding a copper kettle to the stove that adds such character to the space!

By just bringing in some copper, displaying some seasonal fruits and a few pumpkins, and adding flowers in the rich colors of the season, you can change the whole feel of a room! This simple fall kitchen decor is casual and chic, and perfect for this in-between time before fall really arrives.

So for now, these simple changes are making my heart sing. It might be hot outside, but inside I’m warming up for fall. And I’ll definitely be getting more pumpkins when they’re finally in the stores!

    Hi Sheila!

    Your decor and style is my inspiration, seriously. I know you have links that are similar to the furniture you have in your home, but I was wondering where you got your farmhouse table and chairs. I’ve been on the search for a new dining set and fell in love with yours. Any advice would be much appreciated.

  2. Morgan Lerner says:

  3. So pretty Sheila!! I love the mini white pumpkins, and the copper pitcher is so perfect for fall 🙂

    I am in SoCal too and this weather sure isn’t making it any easier to get that fall feeling. Good for you for tracking down some pumpkins! It all looks lovely. Now, if the weather would just cooperate…..

    1. I know – that’s so true Donna! I’m so done with this heat! But thank goodness next week is supposed to be cool and very “fall-like” – I can’t wait!

      Thanks for stopping by! And thanks for your kind words!


  7. Everything looks so beautiful and simple! I just love how you mixed in the fresh green apples and your flowers are stunning!!

    1. Thank you Holly! So appreciate you stopping by:)


  8. Lucy AKINS says:

    That arrangement is so beautiful !

  9. Ah, that copper bowl with the fresh apples is a beautiful sight. Nothing beats the real deal, fresh apples, fresh pumpkins. I will live the autumn beauty vicariously thru you, since I’m unable to decorate anymore. Thank you for bringing so much beauty for me to see and enjoy, Sheila 🤗

    1. I feel the same way. I love decorating with real pumpkins and fruits of the season! Though admittedly, sometimes in blogging I have to do things so early I’m forced to add some faux! But real is always my first choice 😉

      Thank you so much for stopping by, I truly appreciate it and am so glad you find it inspiring!


  10. I love the simplicity and warmth of your fall décor! I will be on the lookout for some copper pieces. Love the flower arrangement. I’m not so great at knowing the names of flowers-would you mind telling me which ones you used?
    By the way I just discovered your blog this past spring and it has inspired me so much! I’m trying to redecorate my house in French Farmhouse style which I realize is what I’ve loved all along and you’ve given me so many great ideas already!

    1. Thank you for such a lovely comment – it’s so wonderful to know I’ve inspired you:)

      As for the flowers, I am also bad, haha! I can tell you the greens are seeded eucalyptus, the larger pink flowers are dahlias, the green stalks are millet, the white flowers are lisianthus, and the berries are hypericum. Hope that helps!

      So glad you’re here now Gina!


  11. It looks beautiful Sheila! Love the touches of copper for fall!

    1. Thanks so much Beth! Can’t wait to stop by yours, too!


  12. I just LOVE the combination of copper with that green and white. It’s so pretty and crisp. Simply beautiful!

    1. Aww, thanks so much Michael – so appreciate that!


  13. As always, your home looks stunning! I love how you bring out copper in the fall…and you styled it so beautifully! Enjoy the rest of your week!
    xo Shelley

    1. Thank you so much Shelley! I have to say, I was ready!! And I’m loving the warmth inside, just need to get rid of the warmth outside now, haha!

      Thanks for stopping by!
