Touches of Fall Around The House

See the touches of Fall around the house by clicking here.It’s my favorite time of year, fall!  It’s the time where the weather cools off a little, the anticipation of the holidays starts mounting, fire pits, and coziness is all around.  I know I sound so typical, but it’s a great time of year.

This is the first fall that we’ve been in our new house and my first fall in Colorado.  I can tell you right now that the Colorado fall colors are the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen.  Decorating for the holidays in our new house is a little tricky though.  I’m not 100% sure where I want things to go or how I want to set things up.  But that’s the beauty of a new house, you get to experiment.

This year I tried to keep our fall decor fairly minimal and incorporate a color I don’t typically decorate with, purple!  You’ll get to see a lot more of that wine hued color on our Fall Front Porch, which I’ll post about next week.

There are also a ton of other ways to subtly decorate for fall.  See if any of the ideas below would work for your home.

  • Add a few pine cones in a bowl or vase
  • Use some sticks in a large urn, or down the center of a table
  • Add some textured throws to your couch, like cable knit or fur, to really amp up the cozy factor
  • Diffuse some fall essential oils so your whole house smells amazing
  • Use apples and mini pumpkins in a large bowl, vase, or basket to decorate
  • Store cut up wood in a large handled basket near a fireplace

What do you think of the touches of fall I used?  Do you think you could incorporate any of these ideas in your own home?

    I love fall, too! I love how cozy all your decor is without being overwhelming. And those multi-colored sunflowers look great with the purple placemats!
