Official or not, I’m just going to come out and say it: Happy Fall!
We are in the middle of closing on our house sale, and I started to feel really sad because I never got the chance to do a real fall home tour in this house. Then I stopped complaining to myself, and decided to decorate my house for autumn, even if we would only enjoy it for less than a month.
I am so glad I went with it, because it brings my heart so much joy to make spaces beautiful.
I have some great tutorials coming your way on the projects for this space. With that said, I decided to hold back on publishing the room by room tour of our house in it’s natural state until I could show you it all decked up for fall.
I wanted to stick to really soft, neutral decor, focusing on white pumpkins & some natural greenery.
One of my succulents had babies… that sounds weird… but before I put them into their own plant pots, I thought I would have fun with them in my home decor. If only one of them had this many, I think I’m going to have an army of succulents next year!
I brought in some fresh branches to decorate our master bedroom with, and I am actually kinda in love with the pop of color they add to this corner of our room.
I can’t wait to share how I made these fun fall pillows with you- It’s a super affordable way to dress up a space for the holidays while keeping that fresh, natural feel.
To keep vines fresh and alive for the season, just add a bud vase to the end of the vine for a fresh supply of water.
I thought that green might look too summery, but once I put it up I was sold!
Now if the leaves were a little more brown, I’m sure they would look even better!
I’m going to miss this room. My husband built this bed in the room, so once we move it will all come apart & we’ll be putting our mattress on the floor in the new place for a while.
The great thing about going neutral is that it blends in with my current decor. Nothing is competing for attention.
I also added candles in all my vases on the mantle. It just adds an extra happy glow.
Here’s a close up of the pumpkins & fresh greenery I assembled right on top of my log crate.
When going neutral, use linen fabrics, either copper or galvanized metal, and a light to medium tone of wood.
I have been so blessed to live in this beautiful home with my family, but we are about to open the next chapter in our life, and I’m sure we will make the next place even more us.
Coming Up Next in my Fall Tour: Stay tuned for the tutorial on how I made these pillows!
