I love a cluster of pumpkins and gourds on the front stoop as much as the next person. I think it has become our “go-to” fall decor for interiors. Everyone receives their Fall Pottery Barn catalog and copies page 8 clustering pumpkins and gourds throughout the home. I think there is a different way to decorate for fall or “fallorize” your decor. With these 5 steps you won’t need to display a single pumpkin or gourd… except when junior brings home an art project from school (in that case..what a sweet little gourd). Here it is 5 pumpkinless fall decor tips.
Step 1. Fill a tall glass vase with water and long branches from your tree outside….viola centerpiece. photo via dominomag.com
Step 2. Add cozy texture accents with a wool blanket or sweater pillow. Think fall textures and add a pop of it to your sofa, chair or bed. photo of blanket via pendleton-usa.com & pillow via findingfabulousblog.com/
Step 3. Mix in vintage or rustic accents to your decor. This can be done with a stack of vintage suitcases as a hall table or towels rolled up in a distressed bucket in your bathroom. photo via apartmenttherapy.com
Step 4. Replace your cracked or chipped staple mug with a “special” mug. One that makes that cup of cocoa taste oh so much better. of course…mugs via anthropologie.com
Step 5. Bring in the aroma of fall with a cented candle in a spicey scent and amber color. photo of candle via anthropologie.com
Follow these easy steps and you are on your way to enjoy another lovely season. Happy fallorizing! Xo ~ Annie
