Well, it’s really fall now – at least in most places! Our weather here has unfortunately resumed it’s summer personality, but I’m hoping for some relief soon. In the meantime, I’m decorating, baking pumpkin bread, and burning my favorite Chai Latté candle. In other words, enjoying all-things-fall!
Fall is definitely my favorite time of year. I look forward to decorating for fall almost as much as I do Christmas! And nothing makes me happier than incorporating things from nature to usher in the season. I naturally gravitate to a more neutral fall palette. As you know, I’m not the biggest fan of the bright oranges and rusts, haha! I like to do a more muted and pared down version of fall. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to incorporate items from nature as part of your seasonal decorating. With fall decorating, a little goes a long way. You don’t need 85 pumpkins on the porch with bales of hay! I sometimes think Pinterest has made us all think we need to go all-out with our seasonal decorating, but I disagree. Just a touch of the season brought in through nature says fall in a subtle way, and reminds us to slow down and enjoy the season we’re in!
Today’s post continues with more fall decorating, and as I did with my kitchen and mantel, I’m keeping it simple and subtle. This year I’m very into the faded versions of fall colors. Blush, faded greens and rusts, and some cream create a more subdued version of fall that really works for me right now. These are traditional fall colors, but in more muted and slightly toned down shades. This subtle fall decorating feels as seasonal as the brighter versions, and I love how soft and cozy it feels!
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!)
Hi friends! Today I’m excited to be joining the Project Design group, hosted by Classic Casual Home, Most Lovely Things, and Rough Luxe Lifestyle. When they asked me if I wanted to join in this month and the topic was fall doors and tablescapes, well, you know how I love a good tablescape – I couldn’t say no! And if you didn’t get a chance to check it out, I’ve recently written a free e-book on tablescapes! I’ve shared twelve of my favorite table settings, along with sources and all my tips and tricks!
I know I’ve said this before (I know!) but I love fall so much! And the last couple of years, I’ve found myself drawn to a more neutral fall decor palette. And since I have to do my Christmas decorating a little earlier this year due to my blog hop coming up, I wanted to touch on fall and Thanksgiving for just a little while longer. At least for this week! After that, I might be forced to give in…
