Happy fall! If you are coming from ShabbyFufu, welcome! If you have never visited our blog before you should know that this is our mother daughter joined blog and today we are going to show you some fall decor in each of our homes!
We love fall for so many reasons! Here in MN the air is crisp and the leaves change colors and you can’t help but crave a pumpkin spice latte. BUT one of the main reasons we love fall is the home decor! Pumpkins, warm color tones, fuzzy blankets, we love it all!
Let’s start with Kim’s home!
Autumn is in the Air here in the Midwest, with warm days and cool nights, making the air feel crisp and the leaves start to change colors. The sun is lower in the sky which means the sunlight slants into the house giving everything a warm glow. When the days turn cooler I change up the textiles and accessories to a more warm and cozy feel. Lots of texture in throw pillows and extra blankets around. Faux fur is always a favorite of mine since I always like a touch of glam. This year I added faux fur pillows and a fur blanket in neutral gray and taupe tones to the family room for extra coziness.
I added a bit of bling with a beaded pumpkin pillow from Homegoods and a silver vase and silver votives. I found the sparkly gold leaves at a favorite shop last year and added them to this arrangement of neutral fall leaves and dried flowers, so easy!
I found this dough bowl at a thrift store and grouped my velvet pumpkins that I won in a giveaway from Love Feast Shop in it and have it on the coffee table. I added a few hydrangea from the yard. They dry naturally this time of year, simply cut and go!
For my mantel I wanted to use this painting I had just bought, so to tie it into my fall decor I looked to nature to make a mantel garland of sorts. I used seeded eucalyptus and clippings from the garden- leaves, sedum and hydrangea along with some white mini pumpkins. Super easy and cheap!
I used elements from nature to add some Fall touches to the kitchen as well. Hydrangeas from the garden, fallen leaves and mini pumpkins bring the outside in. I used an old burlap coffee bag I found at a local antique store for a table topper. I love that it says Minneapolis on it!
On the Island I gathered a bunch of hydrangeas from my garden and placed in an old chippy planter. They dry naturally without any water in the planter although the colors do fade over time. I found the planter and candlesticks at my favorite antique store.
I cut some sedum from the garden and put in a white iron stone pitcher. Apples in an antique milk glass bowl scream Fall!
The Sunporch adjacent to the kitchen gets sun all day. I had some fun in here with new blue zebra print pillows and a “Thankful” pillow to add a seasonal touch. A plaid throw and a few pumpkins complete the look 🙂
Now for Lacey’s home!
This year I wanted to try something different with my fall decor and stray from the traditional style and go for a more modern glam vibe. In my home I added a deep plum and mauve color to give the room a pop for fall! Fabulous faux fur pillows bring in a cozy texture and deep warm color flowers set the tone for fall.
When I bought this mauve chair at Goodwill for only 15 bucks I was originally thinking it would look great in my bedroom, which it totally does, but in the spirit of switching things around for the new season I wanted to give it a go for my living room! Bringing in the mauve pillows and accessories pulled the look together and made the chair a statement piece!
I styled my coffee table with a large gold leaf shaped tray with gold candle votives on top, next to a large gold vase and a white velvet pumpkin. I love the simple accessories in gold tones, they really pop against my reclaimed wood coffee table!
For my dinning area I set up a couple different options for centerpieces. This first one I have dried flowers with orange and mauve tones to add in a more classic look for fall! I added some gold candle sticks and a wood tray for some dimension and texture. This texture combination almost mimics what I’ve got going on in my living room and on my coffee table. Adding similar elements from one room to the next creates a cohesive flow!
In this second option I added two more bouquets full of fall-esk flowers to add in more layers which made for a grander more colorful tablescape! To achieve the height and dimension of this tablescape one of the flower vases is set on a marble cake platter! Love me some marble!
On my kitchen island I created a simple centerpiece with candle sticks with ceramic pumpkins on the top of a wooden tray!
Get the Look!
