14 Simple Fall Decorating Ideas

14 Simple Fall Decorating Ideas

Who has been puttering or fall nesting around their house? I started to and then had a couple of unexpected deadlines I had to attend to this week. Oh, and then the sun was SO WARM and inviting yesterday I got off track to spend some time outside! It’s nice to get in some good vitamin D when we can, right?

But I am back to it and can’t wait to show you a few results of the puttering next week!

In the meantime, I thought I’d pop in quick with some simple fall decorating inspiration from my home over the years.14 Simple Fall Decorating Ideas

1. Decorate fillable lamps

Did you know you can find fillable glass lamps? It’s a fun way to add a little seasonal decor.

Here are some similar fillable lamps, and here’s a post with ideas of things to display!

2. Pair books & organic elements

I love decorating with books all year round, but you really can’t beat them for the fall and winter! Combine them with pumpkins, artichokes or other organic elements for a fun combo.

Line up pumpkins on your mantel, group them together in the center of a table, or on a stool, or in a basket on the coffee table (I got my velvet pumpkins here).

10. Bring in lanterns and candles.

Flickering candles set the mood (battery operated candles like these often come with timers so you can set them to come on automatically!).

Throw rugs and runners are all really easy to update. Put soft rugs by your doors and runners to your hallways or kitchen (also if you missed where I get cute towels you can find some HERE).

Fall Home Refresh: 5 Ways to Bring Your Home to Life!

Fall Home Refresh: 5 Ways to Bring Your Home to Life!Fall home refresh –  sponsored by World Market

I couldn’t be more excited about the beginning of fall! The weather was gorgeous in Seattle yesterday, so it was fun to be outside and see the leaves already turning! But home is where my heart is, so here are five of my favorite fall home refresh tips to bring new life to a space:

1. Design a welcoming area for people to gather.

It’s so important to have a dining table refreshed and ready for fall. The more welcoming your dining area is, the more your home will come alive with what matters most, your friends and family!

Simply adding a runner or placements plus a bowl or a lantern as a centerpiece can make your table feel extra inviting.

I got my table runner from World Market last spring and the lanterns just a couple of weeks ago. They have so many great items for setting a table and making it welcoming, I always find the best stuff there (you can find fall items I love at the end of this post).

2. Invite in warmth with lamps and lanterns.

On a chilly fall night, you’ll want to have candles, lamps and lanterns you can light or turn on to warm up the room, even when it’s getting dark outside!

3. Soften every space with layers.

I don’t think you can have enough layers in fall spaces.

You can use an area rug or runner to soften a hard floor, or even layer one over another rug to define a space and add color. Jack is a real fan of rugs because he can get cozy, nap or watch for funny business in comfort around the house.

Pillows are an invitation to relax and get comfortable, so pile those plump and cozy pillows everywhere. Add extras to your sofa, daybed, chairs and bed.

Everyone in your home, including your furry members, will thank you for thinking of their comfort.

4. Multiply textures and function with baskets.

So, how many baskets are too many? Honestly, I’m not sure you can have too many. Organic elements bring life to a room!

Baskets not only add texture, but they are a stylish decorative element as well as bring organization to any room. I love pieces that serve more than one purpose!

Hang some baskets on the wall, set a few on shelves to store and display your cozy blankets, tuck a couple here and there to stash all the unsightly things, and use them to cover up plastic plant pots which can elevate a plant to be a statement piece in a room.

5. Bring in your favorite little touches.

It’s the little things that bring a home to life, so make them more personal to show off your unique style. What do you love? A fun new dish towel doesn’t take up much space in the kitchen, but can add so much personality, style and a seasonal touch to your home.

What are the elements that speak to you this time of year? Add more of those. It’s your home, make it your own.

Your home will come to life as you fill it with fall comforts, your stories and own unique style (and of course, your favorite people and furry friends.)

What are your favorite ways to refresh your home in the fall?
