Well, I finally faced the fact that summer is over so I started pulling out my fall decor.
This year, I began by decorating my console table with a festive fall vignette…
Sometimes, just starting with one area will inspire you to decorate more.
Although, I am still working on the family room, I managed to decorate this little spot for now while I make other big decisions (like which rug to buy)…
Although, I like using neutrals in my seasonal decor, I always end up throwing in a little orange for fall!
The orange velvet pumpkin was the only new thing I bought this year. I found it at TJMaxx if you are looking for them.
Even a few easy changes can update a room for a new season.
On my shelf, I simply swapped out the summer colored cookbooks for a stack of fall colored ones. This helped to tie them in with the orange velvet pumpkin.
Trays make things easy…
Using trays help to group the accessories together and it’s one of my favorite classic fall decorating ideas. This seagrass one has made its rounds in practically every room. The texture makes it perfect for a fall vignette.
For a pulled together look, it helps to repeat the same colors…
The stack of white bowls carry the white down to the lower shelf to keep things bright.
Most of us agree, you can’t go wrong with pretty storage baskets…
A row of seagrass baskets on the bottom coordinate with the tray. As you can probably see, these also hold my napkin collection.
From this angle, you can see into the kitchen.
As you can see, I haven’t added too much in there yet.
Sometimes, keeping it simple is better.
I just added a few things to the stove mantel – a couple velvet pumpkins to match the one on the console along with some more bundles of wheat.
Last year, I used real white pumpkins but I kind of like the pop of orange up there with these. Although, once I find some white pumpkins, I might end up changing this area again. We’ll see…
So the fall decorating has begun! Remember, autumn officially starts this Friday!
