As much as I love summer months, I crave the crisp autumn air. If I could just bottle “fall” and spray it all over my home, I would.
I love the colors of autumn, the temperature, the wardrobe choices… it’s all great.
Since moving into our new house in the spring, I really haven’t done anything decor wise. I really just wanted to live in the space and get to know it over time before painting and making any big purchases. Plus I had no time or energy with this human growing inside me.
But now I’m ready. Bring on Autumn!
Here are 4 ways I’m bringing the outside in this season:
These craft pumpkins are by far the easiest thing you can do to take your home from summer to autumn. The best part is they aren’t too Halloween-y so they can stay up well into November. I love them on my mantle!
I was weeding my garden and these lovely ornamental grasses were overgrown and hanging down into the sidewalk. Instead of just throwing them in the compost I trimmed them up and put them in a vase on the mantle beside even more craft pumpkins! I love the fall vibe the grass gives off. It reminds me of a corn maze.
I have a confession. I can’t even keep succulents alive. But this little guy seems to be pulling through! I’m so proud. To show him off a put him in the center of the dining room table on top of a wood round my husband cut (and we used for our wedding) and a horn my husband found! the succulent, the horn and the wood really play off each other well and make such a simple centerpiece that we are loving. If you can’t keep a succulent alive, a pot of faux succulents might be just what you need!
I’ve recently gotten into weaving and am exploring the different ways to hanging my pieces on the wall. For this piece I chose driftwood and I think it looks great. I love the white washed look of driftwood and would love to see more if it around my home. If I didn’t have such a curious little one running around I would love to put a large piece of driftwood in front of my fireplace, but in our house that’s just asking for trouble!
Would you try any of these in your home this autumn? Let me know in the comments or hop on to Instagram and let me know!
