Decorating for Fall

Happy October! This is hands down one of my favorite months, and for me, it’s all about transition - the weather is shifting, the leaves are falling, and we’ve got holidays just around the corner. So, today I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite décor tips to get your home ready for cooler days. Because there’s nothing quite like this time of year – especially in Minnesota. Enjoy!

FLORALS

You don’t have to repaint your walls or switch out all of your throws and pillows when the season changes. Instead, add a punch of color to your home with a bouquet of fresh or dried flowers. I’m loving this bunch of bright yellow tall branches in a stone vase – it’s the perfect way to add a touch of dramatic fall presence to the space. Oh, and P.S. - if you’ve got little kids and are worried about them knocking over a vase, try putting it on a sofa table or on top of a cabinet so it’s out of reach. Keeping things functional is what I’m all about!


GREETINGS

How adorable is this fall welcome?! Changing out your door mat seasonally is a great way to greet your guests and to celebrate a fresh start. It adds instant curb appeal and makes your home feel all kinds of happy. Pair it with some fall flowers, and you’ve got one gorgeous entry!

Over the yellows, oranges, and reds that dominate this time of year? If you love fall colors but want something different, think beyond the traditional palettes. I personally love shades of burgundy and magenta, and I recommend pairing them with a combo of neutrals and greenery – it makes for a stunning array.


FREAKY STYLISH

Anyone else absolutely crazy about Halloween? I’m obsessed! Every year, I go all out, and any excuse for a skull or something scary at my house is a must. If you’re as wild about this holiday as I am, try stashing bits of creepy crawlers or cobwebs around the house in unexpected places like bookcases and chandeliers – it’s a ton of fun when people notice them, and your kids and guests will love it!
