Welcoming Fall Home Tour: Simple Touches of Autumn

September 17, 2017
Share me:

Happy (almost) fall, friends!  I’m so glad you stopped by for the Welcoming Fall Home Tour!  I’m thrilled to be included with a fantastic group of bloggers who’ve brought their creative talents together to share some fall decorating ideas and inspiration with you today.

If you’ve arrived here from House of Hire, I’d like to extend a special welcome to you!  Lauren has such amazing style, and I’m sure you were inspired by her beautiful fall décor!

If you remember, my theme for summer was “easy and breezy,” and I guess I’m carrying that theme straight into fall!  By keeping my décor simple and adding elements slowly, I hope to make my fall décor last until it’s time to decorate for the holidays.

I’m excited to show how you can ease into fall with subtle changes to your home–most of which you probably already have around the house.  You really don’t have to go all out (unless you want to, of course) in order to bring a touch of warmth to your home for the cooler months ahead.

By the way, you’ll see I’m sharing lots of vignettes with you today–that’s because we’re installing wood flooring in our bedrooms and hallway and things are a bit of a mess around here!  Thanks for understanding–I promise to share some wide shots with you later!

Enjoy, and thank you again for stopping by!

Natural Elements

One of the best ways to incorporate fall touches is to feature natural elements.  They bring in just the right amount of fall–and they’re easy on the budget!  In fact, my favorite source for fall decorating is our yard and garden.  Think leaves, branches, acorns, gourds, apples–and of course, pumpkins.

Another option is to check out the grocery store for bunches of greenery.  They’re usually very inexpensive–in fact, this eucalyptus (which you’ll see throughout my home) was only $2.50 a bunch!  Needless to say, I bought a bunch of bunches!

I added it to our mantel, table settings, entryway … pretty much all over the house!

Other natural elements you can use to add a feeling of warmth to your home are fossils and wood–shown below in the bowls and bead strands.  I also love the look of corks–a few tossed in little bowls adds a simple fall touch to any space.

I love using fresh herbs and seasonal fruit in my fall decorating.  These lovely red pears called to me when I saw them in the grocery store.  Not only did they add a pretty touch to our countertop for a few days, they were delicious!

Those beautiful rosy pears also made an appearance on our dining room table …

I’ll share more fall table setting ideas with you in an upcoming post!

Textures

Layering textures is a great way to bring the feeling of fall to your home.  You can easily add or subtract elements to achieve the look you’re going for.  I don’t usually have this much stuff on my sofa, but I wanted to show how well different textures can work together.

Throws, fur pillows, natural fiber rugs, tweed, linen, and my favorite texture, velvet, all add beautiful visual and tactile interest to a space.  I rearranged these pillows to achieve different looks and had fun finding all the ways they can work together.  I was a little surprised at how much I liked the look of fur with fur!

I carried some fall textures into the kitchen as well by displaying some favorite linen and cotton textiles and a leather tote.  Not only does it create a pretty vignette, I love having everything right at hand!

I wanted our hearth room to feel really cozy for the cooler months since we spend so much time in here, so I added some soft pillows and knit throws.  Now we’re ready for fall Netflix marathons!

To balance out some of the deeper tones I’m using this fall, I incorporated softer textures and greys in vases, pillows and throws.

Patterns

Pattern is another great element to layer in to your fall décor.  This year, I added a bit of plaid to the mix with buffalo check pillows.  These pillows were one of the few things I brought back from last year’s fall décor.  Last year, I paired them with rich green.  This year, I’m loving how they pop against blue …

And wine!

My diamond-patterned throws always appear somewhere in my home.  They seem to work for every season and in every spot I place them!

Candles

As the days get shorter, it’s a great time to gather up your candles and create some autumn ambiance.  Nothing brings out that cozy fall feeling (and scent) more than candles.  I use them liberally during the fall and winter months.

Woven Items

Wicker, rattan, bamboo, and sea grass trays, baskets and chairs all add a beautiful touch of fall to your home.  Here, I added a shallow woven tray to prepare our entryway to greet fall guests.  It’s also a great catch-all for keys and such.

In the hearth room, a rattan chair draped with a fur throw, provides a cozy spot to sit by the fire.

Books

Books are a great way to add a cozy feeling to your home for fall!  This is a great time to bring out books you’ve been meaning to read or re-read.  By seeing them on display, you’ll be encouraged to pick them up and read them over the cooler months to come.

Cookbooks–especially ones that evoke memories of comfort foods like soup (and dessert) also make a great addition to your fall décor.  Soup happens to be my favorite autumn meal, so I put together a post sharing several of my favorite fall soup and stew recipes.

Thank you so much for stopping by for my home tour!  I hope you found some ideas for your own home!  For more inspiration, please check out my fall home tour from last year, as well as 17 Easy Fall Home Décor Ideas and 25 Fresh Fall Porch Ideas.

I do plan to add more fall touches to our home as the season progresses, so I hope you’ll check back again in the coming days!

Remember, when it comes to decorating your home, there are no rules!  Do what makes you happy, and it will never be wrong.  My favorite home accessory for any season?  A friendly pup! (And yes–this is his friendly face!)
