Hello friends! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by!
Today, we are celebrating fall in a BIG way, thanks to Leen from Sand Dollar Lane. Leen put this amazing home tour together with a total of ELEVEN of my blogging buddies! We both love coastal decor, and she has a wonderful way of adding it to her farmhouse style, as well!
And if you’re here by way of Noting Grace, I’m sure you enjoyed Jen’s beautiful decor! I love her style, and those touches of aqua!!! She’s a sweetie, too!
SMALL HOME FALL TOUR – Adding Touches of Fall to Your Tiny House
If you’re new to My Wee Abode… WELCOME! Because I want to get to the ‘good stuff’, I won’t bore you with an intro. But, please feel free to learn more about MWA by visiting the ABOUT PAGE.
Today, we are going to see just how easy it can be to add touches of fall to a tiny home… or any size home for that matter!
Let’s get at it, shall we?
How Can I Make My Small House Beautiful for Fall?
Lots of people living in small homes, apartments, tiny houses, or dorms feel it is quite a challenge to make a small space beautiful… And it CAN be a challenge.
To make this challenge a little less daunting, let’s look at some simple steps to create beauty in any room, for any season!
Start with a Limited Color Palette
Though My Wee Abode always has a touch of color (and some would say *more* than just a touch), using a neutral palette as a foundation for other pops of color gives way to a light, bright, and airy living space.
And, it makes decorating a whole heck-of-a-lot easier as you don’t have to change the basic furniture and decor all the time.
Painting the walls a neutral greige, purchasing a sand-colored loveseat, using white furniture as well as natural furniture, all makes for a foundation that is easy to mix-and-match with decor.
Many people, myself included, can fall into the trap of adding lots of small decor items to a small space. This can tend to make a room look cluttered and even smaller.
Instead of adding LOTS of little things, think about adding larger items to a room, like these demijohn vases on the side of my sofa.
Until recently, I had a small garden bench that served as a side table sitting here. Recently, I felt it was just too small and “boxy” for this area. So instead, I’ve opted for these large glass vases to make a “statement”. (A new DIY coffee table is in the works for holding drinks, etc.)
This large vintage window pane is a mainstay in my small living room. It’s large and so fun to decorate for the seasons. You can see more ways this pretty ‘window’ has been decorated HERE.
Even though large decor items are a must, be sure to not overlook the sweet little additions to your home. Just use them sparingly.
My favorite candlesticks are on the larger side, but adding the acorn candle rings and a sweet little orange and white pumpkin add tiny fall touches.
This fall season, I haven’t used my DIY velvet pumpkins… and I kind of miss them. However, this real pumpkin is fitting well into my color scheme!
Adding some small framed printables to your home is a great way to add a touch of fall. Including your WiFi password on the bottom is helpful for visitors, too!
Using your favorite colors of fall is a perfect way to add fall touches to your home, be it small or large!
This year, I’ve added orange, yellow, and aqua to My Wee Abode. I know. you’re surprised by aqua… not!
These demijohns not only are statement pieces, but they add my fave aqua to this room, along with yellow forsythia (yes, I’m using a spring flower in fall… Shhh, don’t tell anyone).
Pillows are my favorite way to add a pop of color to any room! I actually based my fall color scheme on these two pillows.
And don’t forget the candles. They are a perfect way to add color and some cozy fragrance to your home.
Nothing says ‘lovely’ quite like adding texture to your decor. Textures can be added in a variety of ways.
Here, I’ve used dried wheat in another glass demijohn (glass elements are carried through-out the room) along with my favorite DIY coastal wooden bead garland.
This grapevine spray wreath was an easy 15-minute DIY project (coming soon to the blog). Fall-toned eucalyptus leaves and creamy yellow berries added some great color and texture!
I love these faux berries… they look so real! (Pro-tip: If you are three feet away from a faux floral, and can’t tell if it’s real or not, it’s a good faux!)
Cotton stems and birch logs are an easy and pretty way to add seasonal texture to your home, whether it is autumn, winter, spring, or summer! Adding some orange berries brings in a pop of color, too!
Make It YOU
Finally, whatever way you decide to decorate your home, and whatever elements you use to bring in the season, be true to yourself!
If you like LOTS of color, go for it!
If you love vintage items, show off your favorite pieces.
You want clean lines and no fluff? Go minimalist, or mid-century modern!
Whatever it is, create a home you love!
As for me… Though there is always change and rethinking going-on about my decor, I’m still sticking to coastal cottage farmhouse style.
What about you? What style do you love, and how will you be adding touches of fall to your home?
