From My Home To Your: Fall Home Decor Accessories

Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been busy switching things around in my home to welcome autumn. I love the change of seasons as it always gives me an excuse to reassess my spaces, see how things are looking and functioning, and tweak details not only for the season, but to make my home more visually satisfying and user friendly. To me, a room is never complete. I spend a lot of time in my home, so I’m always adjusting and moving things around to achieve an even more beautiful look.

Inspired by Charm Living Room

Last week on my blog, I shared a lot of these changes in my Fall Home Tour. While I didn’t add a great deal of “fall decor,” I pulled in plenty of natural elements, shiny metallics, and warm colors to dress my space for the season. I’ve shared resources on my blog for some of my accessories, and I thought it would be fun to do the same thing here on Style Spotters.

As you can see below, I’ve gathered together several key pieces that really helped my space come alive this season. In addition to products, I included a few DIY projects. Part of seasonal decorating is about using the things you already have in a different way – tucking fall leaves in your favorite vase, painting something a different color, etc.

Happy Friday all! This week, since it’s finally starting to feel like the fall we all know and love, I decided to share some decoration inspiration to help prepare your home for the season ahead!

 

Fall means football (whether that makes you groan or cheer is totally up to you). For your next tailgate, revamp an old aluminum chair with this easy DIY makeover from A Beautiful Mess to make a statement out of your seat! Team colors optional.

 

I love this painted geometric cube porch from Little Green Notebook. It brings just the right amount of style and flair to the most inviting part of your home!

 

 

Always wondered how to dry flowers and never knew quite how? Take a look at this tutorial from Cedar Hill Farmhouse and learn not only how to dry them the right way, but how to use them for decoration as well.

 

 

Nature and fall go hand in hand. DIY Enthusiasts pulled together a list of nature-inspired fall decorations, and I spotted this awesome idea while I was browsing. Such a simple and cute way to add some visual appeal to any empty space in the house!

 

 

Lastly, need inspiration for your tabletop this fall? Look at Aunt Peaches easy ways to spruce up your house with these “golden” tips and tricks.

 

 

Enjoy the week!

Welcome to September! I can’t wait for the leaves to start changing color, the days to get chillier, and the return of jackets and leg warmers and mittens! It’s been far too hot for my taste these past several months, and I’m so excited we’re finally in the home stretch. Among many other things, fall is the beginning of the holiday season. Use these clever tips and tricks to get your home ready for all of those holiday visitors!

 

Entryways are one of the rooms that most often get overlooked. Nalle’s House adds a spunky spin to their entryway with an unconventional design approach! I can’t even tell you how much I love that wallpaper. Guests will be amazed as soon as they step foot into your home!

 

 

If you’re impressed with that, take a look at this bathroom revamp by A Beautiful Mess. An easy-to-create geometric stencil, a few paintbrushes and some of your favorite paint colors are all you need to transform any room in your house into a visual hotspot.

 

 

I am absolutely amazed by these LED Mason Jar lights I spotted on Sarah Hearts. Add a hand-spun twist to your home with this chandelier that is guaranteed to impress! Imagine how perfect that would look in any high-ceiling entry way–your guests would be rooted to the spot!

 

 

Eating a meal with your family and friends is often times one of the most memorable experiences people have together. These fall-themed painted burlap place settings from A Night Owl will be perfect for any upcoming family get-together.

 

 

And lastly, I love the delicate homemade feel of these DIY teacup candles from Hey Gorgeous. Whether you take a trip to your local dollar store or use old cups lying around the house, the handmade touch of these cuties will soften any space in your home, just in time for the holidays.

 

 

Until next time! Have a wonderful week!

Good morning all! With all of the activities that create our crazy lives, it’s hard to find time to do things just for the fun of it. These quick and simple DIY’s will treat you to a little me-time, and great pieces to show for it.

 

I’ve never been much of a carpenter, but even I could make this amazingly simple Leather Handled Cutting Board from Almost Makes Perfect. What starts out as a plain piece of wood turns into a gorgeous testament to your inner craftsman.

 

 

Another in-kitchen idea: decorated tea towels. I know, I know, how overdone…But these Confetti Trail Tea Towels on For The Makers were too cute to pass up. What an easy way to add some color and fun to your kitchen!

 

 

I love mirrors–the crazier the better. These amazingly easy Salvaged Yard Mirrors by Killer B. Designs put a creative new (or old?) twist on your framing options. Who says all that junk in your garage is useless?

 

 

I still really can’t get enough of terrariums and air plant vases. Pile on some color with this super simple Paint-Dip Planters tutorial from Vintage Revivals. I especially love how she hung them on her wall–SO ADORABLE.

 

 

And lastly, I love the look of this coffee table serving tray and drawer from The Design Confidential.  A little more demanding than the others, after you channel your inner craftsman one last time, you’ll have it finished and ready to impress in no time.

 

 

Happy creating! Have a wonderful week!

Happy Friday! Summer is officially winding down–kids are back in school, the heat is slowly taking all the color out of grass and gardens, and busy lives reconvene. The Pumpkin Spice Latté is almost back. To mark the end of a wonderful summer, I pulled some gorgeous room decor photos to help inspire us to keep our indoors bright while the days get shorter and chillier (hopefully)!

 

This beautiful fall centerpiece from Hello Natural is perfect for welcoming back autumn! Long-lasting and fragrant, this eye-catching ensemble will wow for months.

 

 

Some of you may have children heading off the college this year–send them with some dorm decor ideas that will let their style show. These 12 Affordable Ways to Add Personality to Dorm Rooms by The White Buffalo Styling Co. are easy, stylish, and budget friendly!

 

 

Always wanted a barn door, but never knew how to install one? Worry no more. East Coast Creative shows us how it’s done with their Upcycled Barn Door.

 

 

Shelving can sometimes be a daunting task if you don’t know what you’re end-goal is. I love the open and light look of these DIY Iron Display Shelves from A Storied Style.

 

 

And if you’re looking to add some spunk to a plain wall–look no further. This brick wall tutorial from AKA Design adds a playful touch to their small space!

 

 

Have a great week, Style Spotters! Until next time!
