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.
A pretty tray holding white pumpkins along with bunches of dried fall leaves on the table pair nicely in this farmhouse kitchen.
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!
Hi everyone! I am Jessica and our blog is called Four Generations One Roof. We are a crew of four generations all living together under one roof, and I happen to be the ring leader. Our blog is where we share our insane living arrangement (going on six years now living together), DIY home projects, renovations, tutorials, room makeovers and whatever else goes on in our home. There are nine of us total — and yes, it’s crazy that we all live under one roof — and so far, we have all survived! Ha. I was thrilled when Better Homes and Gardens invited me to share our family room with you as well as fabulous ideas on how you can bring the much-anticipated SPRING into your own family room.
This year for spring, I decided to use coral and navy throw pillows along with a coordinated throw blanket to add pops of fun bright color to the room.
Pillows are the easiest and most economical way to add color to a room. Many times I will purchase fabric I love and cover old pillows. Don’t worry if you can’t sew; purchase some stitch witchery and iron the fabric together. You will be amazed at how you can change the look with some fun fabric and old pillow inserts. Below, I took an old piece of fabric and covered a canvas dump truck wall hanging that was my son’s when he was a toddler. Paired with a couple of candle stick holders, faux coral and a cute sign, you now have a springy themed vignette for little money.
It’s super easy to transform a room from season to season using just a few items.
I love how they coordinated the pink colorful flowers with the pink throw pillow in both the above and below photo.
What strikes me about this room is the tall greenery in the corner. Anytime you add fresh greens or flowers to a room, it instantly feels springy and fresh.
This room is one of my favorites. Chocolate brown and pink add such a huge impact to a room. This color scheme makes the room feel alive, happy and just what is needed after a long winter! You don’t need to have colorful and patterned furniture to achieve this look. You can purchase fabric and recover pillows, create fabric-covered wall art, or recover books and boxes for shelving displays.
Here is another example of layering framed artwork to create a spring-themed vignette. The mantel is simple yet adds a contrast in color as well as ties in the orange color from the throw pillows and blanket.
There are so many ways to add a spring element to your family room, these are just a few of the easiest and most economical. Of course, you can break out the paint brushes and get busy adding a fresh new paint color to your room. I’m all about that, but for now our family room is sporting some fun new throw pillows, DIY wall art and a colorful throw blanket. Thank you so much, Better Homes Gardens, for inviting me to spend time with your readers. It was fun!
