Use a “Light” Hand for Early Fall Decor
When adding decor to your late summer home in preparation for the autumn season, use an ‘edited’ hand.
You know… don’t go all out with pumpkins, acorns, or large pinecones. Save that for when we are in full-swing cozy weather (or not!).
Is this as hard for you as it is for me?
Try this tip… Remove all the decor from your room (except for permanent decor on the walls). Then slowly add items to your space, and then…
Take one or two tchatchkes from the space.
This should help give you a minimal look that is perfect for the early fall season.
Sparingly Use Faux Fall Florals
Usually, faux florals show-up in full-force at My Wee Abode. However, this late in the summer, you may want to use ‘fauxs’ just a bit less than how you might want to use them in September.
For the first time, I didn’t use florals on the wreath above my media center. It’s taking a bit to get used to, but I think it’s nice to have something more minimal this early in the season.
What do you think?
Some orange ‘berries’ in my mini black lanterns add a pop of autumnal color, as well.
Also, I added some faux fall stems to the large amber demijohn on my window bench.
Because this area is so hard to photograph, I started with some warm-colored eucalyptus stems… but for a more neutral fall look, the white pampas/plume reed stems worked better.
Which do you like better?
Add Textiles for a Pop of Color
Textiles will not only add a pop of color, but they add texture, as well.
This lovely blue light-weight throw was a gift from a dear blogging friend that visited this past spring. Adding this muted blue color works very well with the amber bottles and neutral tones being used throughout the living area.
It’s Time to Add Some Candles!
Are you as excited as I am to start using candles again?
Here in So Cal, using candles during the summer is a little counter-intuitive. You just don’t want to add any more heat to a room, no matter how small the flame! 🙂
So, I’m excited to use this lovely Bridgewater Candle in the Sweet Grace fragrance, the signature scent in my little loft.
You can place a large white pillar candle in a pretty bowl as a candle holder, too. This little bowl is actually a measuring cup from the Hearth and Hand line (no longer available).
Use Natural Elements for Texture
As you can see above, adding some touches of nature can add an unexpected surprise that can pack a nice little ‘punch’.
Adding some mini pinecones throughout the room says, “fall is coming”, without saying “fall is here”.
This is the first year I’ve used amber bottles, and I’m loving them! Do you use amber bottles in your decor for fall?
