“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” –F. Scott Fitzgerald
When it comes to fall home decor, I like to keep it simple.
Gone are the days of stringing fake cobwebs and precariously balancing scary black crows atop pumpkins on my doorstep. (Although that was a lot of fun.)
Nowadays, I try to use nature as my inspiration, which means incorporating many of the plants and flowers I already have on hand into my seasonal decorating scheme.
In an attempt to make life a bit easier, I’ve also started decorating for the entire fall season, rather than decorating once for Halloween, then taking everything down and decorating again for Thanksgiving.
And since orange doesn’t really go with anything in my home, I try to keep the orange pumpkins and banners to a minimum and just stick with mostly white, green, black, and gold(which also happen to be my favorite colors to decorate with, any time of year).
I just love bringing fall’s natural beauty indoors, so this year I also tried to incorporate as many stems, twigs, leaves, and flowers into my autumn look as possible, either clipped from our own plants or bought at the grocery store.
I’ve found that letting nature provide the inspiration for my fall home décor makes for a more inviting atmosphere that allows the colors and beauty of the season to take center stage, as they should.
Autumn truly is “the year’s last, loveliest smile.” –William Cullen Bryant
