Pretty Fall Spaces {fall decorating ideas}

 

Hi everyone! I’m Jessica and I blog over at Four Generations One Roof and I’m so happy to be here today sharing a slew of pretty fall spaces. I have lived in New England my entire life and fall is absolutely beautiful here. The colorful leaves, abundance of apple orchids and crisp mornings are something to be treasured for sure. Whether you are incorporating fall items you already own, purchasing inexpensive fall decor or bringing the outdoors in, these ideas are sure to inspire your inner creativity.

 

Fall decorating doesn’t need to be elaborate. This pretty space below dictates simplicity by using fresh flowers, greens and branches from outside. The casual burlap table runner ties everything in nicely.

I love how Melissa used fresh greens and lavender to add a hint of fall in her kitchen. So pretty!

Laura created this fabulous vintage door vignette on a blank wall in her festive dining space. The simple white pumpkin and small dish filled with herbs are perfect for this space.

In our family room below, I incorporated the traditional orange and brown fall colors via pillows and a throw. Sunflowers are also a great seasonal flower which look fabulous just about anywhere.

An easy way to add a subtle hint of fall is to swap out your lamp shade for a neutral shade as shown below. The dried fall leaves from outdoors along with the textured linen shade add just enough to say, “fall!”

Do you have a small entry? Try adding a basket filled with apples and fresh greens from outside. This clever idea is simple and inexpensive.

Adding a plaid brown blanket to your bed is a great way to introduce fall to your bedroom. Looks like a cozy place to cuddle up with a book!

We added pumpkins and dried oak leaves to our dining room table this year and I must say, I love the simple look. We use our dining room to eat, do homework and play games so minimal decor for us is best. It doesn’t take up much room and it’s easy to move!

Living with four generations under one roof tends to get complicated sometimes when we decorate so my mom and I usually decorate together, although this year for fall it was just me. She is away on a tour with my dad of the mid-west and gone for a few weeks. I think she will be thrilled when she gets home and everything is decorated. Don’t worry, I did leave a few rooms for her to get her “fall on” when she gets home ;). Now it’s time for you get busy and create your own pretty fall spaces. Be sure to come back and tell us how you incorporated fall in your own home!

Friday Finds 6.27

This week has been a particularly rainy one, and I’ve gotten a little antsy looking out my windows waiting for the weather to perk up. I’m the type of person who always has to be busy with something, and so I tried my luck with some of these awesome DIY projects this week (although mine didn’t turn out nearly as well):

With the Fourth of July coming up, I wanted to make something festive that I wouldn’t throw away as soon as the day was done. This Fourth of July Clothespin Wreath from Washi Tape Crafts is cute enough to leave up all year round.

 

I love flowers, and couldn’t pass up an opportunity to try this Gold Fruit Bowl DIY by House of Earnest. While gold paint creates a chic look, bright colors make the whole ensemble even more eye-catching.

 

 

As the days get (hopefully) more sunny, outdoor activities will become a regular routine. I love the playful look of this Painter’s Canvas Picnic Blanket I found on A Subtle Revelry’s blog. Such a cute and easy way to enjoy an afternoon laying on the grass.

 

 

I can’t wait to try out this gallery wall I spotted on The Proper Pinwheel. The random but unified collection of frames makes the room visually interesting but not overwhelming or distracting.

 

 

And while I like accessorizing rooms with textures, colors, and funky pieces, I’m starting to realize an appreciation for more minimalist, natural-looking decoration. These easy ways to decorate with tree branches on A Hammer and Heels brings a simplistic and earthy vibe to any room in the house.
