Fall Scenes Around Our Home

I’m getting this post up a little later than planned, but it’s better than never! As promised a few weeks back, today I’m sharing some of the fall scenes around our home.

I think like one affiliate link is in this post … Thanks for helping me make a few cents at no extra cost to you!

As with most of my decorating (with the exception of Christmas), I didn’t do a huge overhaul for the fall season. Instead, I just swapped a few things here and there that mix with our everyday decor. My motto was to keep things simple and neutral – no shocker there! – and when all else fails, throw in a pumpkin.

The only place that I use some color is our front entryway. It cracks me up that this was our first “renovation,” and the space still looks exactly the same three years later. Some things are just better left as is. Anyway, I love that the traditional fall foliage stems bring a little bit of the outside in. And, no fall decor is complete with out at least one favorite seasonal quote print. Holy blurry photo, Batman! Sorry about that …

I was most excited to jazz up our faux fireplace in the front sitting room. This is easily still one of my favorite DIY projects that Ryan brought to life for me. It just makes the room feel cozier.

See what I mean about just throwing in a pumpkin? They instantly complete little vignettes and add that fall charm. I also never thought that I would be into banners/bunting, but this burlap sign won my heart.

Our dining room currently is a catchall, but you can check out last year’s post for what it will look like in the next couple weeks. I’m keeping the same tablescape theme to keep it easy on myself.

Moving into the kitchen, my floating shelves always are fun to makeover with each season. I wanted to keep it the same as last year since I didn’t get to enjoy it for very long – we were still in the midst of renovations – so I actually had to go back through pictures to remember and copy what I did. Ha!

I found the cutest wooden crate in the $1 section at Target a few months back, and I’m thrilled I finally figured out a way to use it. Isn’t it a perfect catchall next to the sink? Complete with a vase of cotton stems (my favorite) and a wall of antique farm utensils from my mother-in-law’s great grandmother, it’s my favorite little part of the kitchen right now.

Our family room is much of the same – white pumpkins and cotton stems. I also made a drop cloth wreath (look it up on Pinterest) last year that’s hanging over one of the mirrors above our couch. I just forgot to photograph it. Whoops. Oh well, use your imagination. 😉

I hope that you enjoyed a glimpse into some of the fall scenes around our home! Hopefully this goes to show that you don’t have to do a lot with decor to change things up every once in a while.

If you’re interested in any of the decor, first check out my picks for neutral farmhouse-style decor for less. Most of my decor is linked in that post. Otherwise, most of the decor I already had or found in the Target Dollar Spot/TJMaxx. Let me know if you have specific questions – I’m happy to help best I can!

Do you overhaul your seasonal decor or keep things simple?
