I love decorating for the seasons and holidays….but I don’t love the mess that comes along with bringing up several bins full of random decor from my basement. I decided it’s time to keep my seasonal decorating minimal. By “minimal” I mean I’m not going to decorate EVERY area of my house, and I’m going to keep most of my everyday decor out while incorporating some seasonal decor.
The first area I decided to focus on for Fall decor is the kitchen. There’s something about a Fall scented candle burning, my Acorn Spice scent Mrs. Meyers soaps and sprays (my FAVORITE scent by far!!), and some hot apple cider brewing in the keurig that just makes the season feel so welcoming and warm. The only things I changed out in the kitchen were some of the plants I had on the counters. I changed the green faux plants to goldenrod faux plants. I added an autumn berry wreath from Kirklands above the oven hood and it absolutely makes such a statement in the room. Since I don’t keep a wreath up year round, I hung it with a heavy duty Command hook. I also added a copper Autumn Harvest sign below my oven hood on the backsplash. I used Command strips to hold this up. Add in a fall scented candle and soaps and I felt like this space had just enough of the Fall-feeling.
The second space I decorated was the hearth room. I changed out the tall cactus on the mantle for this amber vase with golden leaf arrangement. It didn’t quite look full enough, so I added a couple of faux stems in a similar color. I added some wicker pumpkins in varying heights next to it. I also had some woven pumpkins from Target a few years back that I put on the hearth coffee table. The final thing I changed was the pillows. I debated keeping the black and white ones that I use every layout, but it just didn’t feel right. I found these rust orange and green velvet pillows and they were exactly what I’d had in mind for the space.
The final area I added some Autumn decor to was the dining table. I found this Pampas Grass bundle and some faux stems to add to the vase. The vase was one that I have out all year long with faux green stems. I decided not to add anything to my dry bar and just kept it simple and neutral. Come October 1st, my decor will change over to Halloween….and I might add some spooky vibes to the dry bar. Stay tuned!
What do you think of my Fall minimalist decor? Do you like to go all-out for Fall decor or keep it simple?
