Every home has a story, and they are as vast and varied as the world is wide. But they all start with inspiration, and inspiration starts with our surroundings. That’s what home is. Family. Friends. A sense of place. An amazing view. It is all part of what makes a space a home because your home is where you truly live. As homeowners ourselves we understand that your best life begins with a home that inspires you.

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
– Henry David Thoreau

Summer is on a slow sun-filled path to autumn, and it’s time to start thinking about all of the things that wonderful season brings; back to school for the kids, Labor Day backyard cookouts, coffee on the porch in the crisp morning air, watching the leaves turn glorious colors, and a change in your light and summery décor to something more cozy and autumnal.

Even warm-weather lovers can’t deny the pleasure that comes from throwing on a cozy chunky knit sweater or taking part in a jack-o’-lantern carving sesh. As summer turns to fall, it’s time to welcome in the season that’s meant for comfy nights in. In fact, one silver lining that has come out of staying home so much is the opportunity to really get the vibe right in your space.

1. The Front Porch

Perhaps our favorite place to decorate. We use our kitchen and it is often the gathering place for friends an family when they come visit. Especially during the holidays. Simple touches throughout the space can make a big impact. I love animal themed rustic prints. Wooden shelves, rustic bins full of Fall inspired items like pumpkins, gourds, dried flowers and more. ad seme farm to form napkins, books, and your guests will be envious.

6 Keep It Simple In The Bathroom

FP Fall Decorating - Fall Bathrooms

We are all about bringing the Fall colors and feel or the warm Autumn season into our restroom. However you’ll want to keep it super simple. We want the powder room to feel spacious. inviting and warm. We have always felt the gust bathroom is the place to wow your guests. Make it something really special. We always go for a hotel inspired theme. Always high-end. Start with a simple bouquet of dried Fall flowers. Replacing with fresh flowers when you have company. Add some nice soaps and lotion essentials, a few white towels and call it a day!

Going with dried flowers really brings the look of Fall in especially with muted orange, yellow or even burnt red… Learn more here

7. Wall Decor

Where there is wall space there is opportunity. Wreaths in all kinds of sizes, colors, and themes are a big hit during the fall months. We actually change out our wreaths for every season. What would normally be used has a coat hanger doubles as a wreath and art holder. Laying a twig on top is a perfect way to add personality. Installing your coat rack just above a stool, bench or table is another great idea for creating a Fall inspired scene in a corner or section of the home. 

This rustic large wooden wall coat racks with hooks has been handcrafted using the finest natural fir wood which is known for its strength and durability, this will give you peace of mind when hanging heavy items.  Learn more here

Your wreaths do not have to be yellow or orange. Green, off-white and earthy tones are just as good. The idea is to create a collage of wreaths showcasing the different Fall colors and inspiration. Learn more here

8. Setting The table

Fall Decorating - Fall Dining Table

The dining room is perhaps the most impactful place to set a theme for the season. We change out or table setting on just about every occasion we can. Sometimes just for fun we change it up so when guests come over they are always seeing something new and different. For Fall you do not have to go the traditional orange, yellow, browns  and red colors. instead lean into grey, green, olive, taupe and other earthy colors. Utilizing these colors the table will look for sophisticated and elegant.  IN this scene the table setting consists of mint green plates, with light brown checkered napkins. The centerpiece is really the show stopper and should be for your table. Bringing together a variety of dried flowers in green colors with white and adding white candles give this setting a nice formal sitting. All set against a farm to table wood dining table sure to last a lifetime.
