Hello fall! Colorful leaves, hot chocolate, an excuse to wear a jacket, pumpkin flavored everything...all the things I love about this season. What I enjoy most is decorating to change things up a bit at home. I'm a firm believer in making your home a space that you love coming to reflect who you are. What better way to do that than decorating!
Sooooo, the plan was to have my fall decor up and ready to share photos with you within this post. But the way my working mom & wife life is set up...
I'll be sure to post my photos at a later date but what I can share are things I consider when I decorate during the seasons and my fall decor inspiration that I collect from Pinterest (it's a lifesaver for everything).
When decorating for fall:
- Start small. You don't have to decorate the entire house. Just focus on 1 room where your family or guests will congregate or a small area such as your front porch or mantle in your living room.
- Figure out your decorating style. Before you can decorate for fall, you have to know your style so that you know what type of items to look for. Do you like industrial, glam, traditional, etc? If you’re not sure, take this quiz from Houzz.com
- Have a focal point. I plan to focus on the mantle in my living room and working from the colors in the painting that I placed there.
- Don't break the bank. Decorating for the season doesn't have to be expensive. There are great pieces you can find for great prices. For example, Target has quality fall decor items in their dollar bins section (ranging from $3-$10. See my pic below). I also go to TJ Maxx, Marshall's or Home Goods for candles, wreaths, table runners, frames, placemats, etc.
Check out my fall inspiration from Pinterest! We’ll see how this goes!
