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.
Please excuse the reflection of Sunday football on the glass. I kept most of my original decor in the living room but just added a few fall touches, using some gourds, an amazing smelling candle, and one of two fall tabletop topiaries.
I added some more fall decor to our living room bookshelves as well. The mercury glass pumpkin doesn’t scream fall, but blends in with our existing decor. And I got smart and turned the TV off for this photo!
The dining room is where I really tried to incorporate more purple because I already had some wine colored place mats. Using them on the table and some orange a yellow sunflowers really brought the fall inside. I also have some potpourri that smells like heaven that I used in candle holders down the middle of the table.
Well that’s it for our indoor fall decor this year. It’s fairly minimal, but I am thinking of getting some fall themed pillow for our living room. If I get them I’ll be sure to post about them on Instagram so you can see them.
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?
