Ready for Fall Decor?

Can you believe that September is practically here! I know here where I live in Southern California it doesn’t feel like it…at all. I’m hopeful though for the crisp air. I don’t decorate a whole bunch for the Fall but I do add a few seasonal touches and thought I would share some ideas.

If you are like me and do a light dusting of Fall you don’t have to break the bank to do so. The Dollar Tree has some great pieces. I also want to say that Michael’s and Hobby Lobby have seasonal sales pretty much the entire time so items are typically 40-50% off.

Some examples of simple and subtle Fall decor can be seen below. When I say subtle I mean, that there is a light “dusting” of seasonal decor placed in your home. Its a small touch without changing the entire aesthetic of your home if that isn’t your thing.

A small centerpiece like this is perfectly confined and brings a light touch of the season.

Now for Fall themes there’s several to choose from, but typically decor will fall (pun intended) between these categories below.

Neutral Colors

Also keep in mind neutral fits in to ALL decor styles. Whether your home is glam, rustic, traditional or modern, neutral tones will fit right in. Most of the tones that embody neutral are whites, grays, natural greenery, black and some metallics (silver/gold/bronze)

Traditional Colors

Think of your warm colors. The yellows, oranges, and tans/browns.

Cranberry/Blush: Emerging Trend

Now I personally don’t feel these colors are Fall but I’ve seen it executed beautifully. If you are pink or red lover then you will be excited about this. I Decor Gold Designs executes it very elegantly and I thought I’d share how she used this pop of color in a more glam/traditional style.

I’ve seen others using this color in a more rustic or boho look. The below items I have seen at Big Lots that follow this trend.

I think one of the cool things about this look is you can reuse or reconfigure these colors for the Spring. Below are some example looks with this color scheme.

Now for some of my general season decor ideas. Now my tips and simple ideas to switch up your home for Fall are simple.

Thought I would include a quick DIY for some of you courtesy of Michaels.

Change out Florals/Stems

One major way to change the feel of your home this season is to switch out your florals. The picture below shows the array of ways you can use florals and other stems.

I want to add that you can also use grasses for the fall. The texture and color brings warmth to your home.

Re-purpose your clear Vases

You can fill them with an array of things, and they don’t have to be expensive items! Many of these items you can pick up from the Dollar Store. These mini pumpkins can easily be found at your local grocer and I’m willing to bet you live by or drive somewhere you can collect pine cones…

Porch and Outdoor decor

If you have outdoor space and want to embellish or make it feel extra welcoming, the ideas are endless. Changing out flags, and door mats. Adding some fall colored flowers to the garden, adding extra pumpkins and seasonal decor. I will say the outdoor could be a little more costly than indoor decor but what a way to enter your home this season. Here are some Pinterest finds and ideas.

I hope that gives you all some ideas and inspiration while shopping. Whether subtle, minimal or opulent let your Fall season décor be great! I leave you with the following video from Alexandra Beuter. Until next time friends!
