Fall is officially here. I have my fall storage containers down from the closet. It is pumpkin chaos around my house right now! Fall decorating is in full swing. I am nearly complete with the small seasonal changes I am making to our downstairs. Although I am not ready to show you pictures of my house, some of my favorite Instagram accounts are! Here are my favorite fall inspiration ideas to inspire your fall decor!
FALL DECOR INSPIRATION – Front Door
Have a window on your front door? A marker made for glass will give you the opportunity to put your seasonal stamp on your entry way. And it is washable!
Have some extra space to decorate around your front door? Create a fall entrance with symmetry by adding plants to both sides of your front door. Add pumpkins to finish the look.
Create a knock-out front porch by layering mums and pumpkins, cascading down the stairs. Having a beautiful brownstone in New York City doesn’t hurt either.
FALL DECOR INSPIRATION – Patio
Have any lanterns that are currently not being used? Bring them back to life by filling them with pumpkins.
Swings are for relaxing. I love that Cindi paired a cozy green throw with the green pumpkins on her porch. The neutrals in the space allow the colors from the pumpkin and the throw blanket to stand out. You can get comfy, too, by replicating this idea.
FALL DECOR INSPIRATION – Entry Way
Go light with white pumpkins with whitewashed wood. This layered look will make your entry way look inviting, as well as light and bright.
This idea is a twist on the idea from above. Switch out candle sticks with matching lamps to create symmetry. Add a fall wreath to make a statement.
You don’t have to buy a bunch of new items in order to decorate for fall. Beth added greenery to her boots. You can do the same by clipping some greenery from your yard and placing them in a pair of boots at the front door.
Use different colors of pumpkins. Linda layered her entry way table with pumpkins in both neutral tones and orange/yellow colors. The mix of the two make this entry way table look very inviting.
FALL DECOR INSPIRATION – Interiors
Kitchens are a tough space for seasonal decorating. I tend to see seasonal hand towels or dishware. Kathleen Field, a Utah designer, had another idea. She kept with the white tones of the kitchen and added white pumpkins and small colorful pumpkins on a cake stand. Using colorful pumpkins that are small, as opposed to large, make the look more pleasing because it flows with the rest of the space. The additional color is just the right amount.
I love the use of old books. Take old paperbacks, rip off the covers, and take advantage of the neutral tone of the paper. Layer those re purposed paperbacks with faux pumpkins and greenery to make a lovely mantle.
And a sneak peek into the changes in my living room. I have added new velvet pillows to the side chairs, pumpkins in both gray and cream to the bookshelf, and added a candy dish to the side table. I hope I can keep my husband from eating all the candy in one week! My downstairs is really coming together. I am so excited about showing you the rest!
