I’m going for it.
Sharing some Fall Decor in our Kitchen today. Except it really isn’t decor that would be classified under the typical “fall category”. This got me thinking about why do I personally change my decor a little for Fall or with each season? What is the draw for me? Because it isn’t for everyone. And many pride themselves on doing nothing for each season change.
For me fall decor is about a change. With each new season we have a change in routines. A change in temperature. A change in how the interior of our home looks from the light that comes in.
Sometimes those changes are hard because we hate to see something great leave.
Why not change up the energy in your home for a little excitement about what is to come?
And if you have young kids the things you change in your home mean more to THEM than you know. It means something exciting is coming. Yes. It. Is.
I have had people say to me “Fall isn’t until September 22nd” or “It is too hot to decorate for Fall” or “Why rush summer?”
First of all I think it is most important to keep in mind the WHY. Why is that person decorating for Fall? The WHY is because it isn’t about you, don’t take it personal. It is about what makes them happy.
Kevin and I were talking at dinner one night about how we define a successful child. Both of us agreed that it is if they are happy. End of story.
Light your pumpkin candle in June if you love the smell. Doesn’t bother me. Because it is for YOU!
Today I am joining a group of bloggers to share our Fall Kitchen Decor, hosted by Ella Claire Inspired. I almost didn’t join this tour. Because as I said I really don’t put out “fall decor”. I took it as a design challenge to share some ideas on what to do in your home if you don’t want to buy or have the space for extra fall decor. But do want a fresh look.
Fall Decor Ideas-
Change up the colors. It could be just putting different colors in a different room.
Move things around you already have, try a new arrangement.
Maybe pick-up a new plant, dish, bowl or something to define the new feel of the space.

I also decide on the mood I want. For me I love a moody home especially in the evening. This is when we are eating dinner, doing homework, Scripture study together. Accent lights is key for me and calming my children after a long day at school and activities. THIS star candle holder was exactly the piece I needed to define my “fall look”. Reminds me of my why.
I almost spray painted my chairs black. I took them outside and everything. I just was feeling the black. But then I thought come Spring my mood will change and I will want them white! So I opted to try THESE bistro chairs. They are coming soon, I will have to share the change!
THESE mini bowls were a big inspiration for me- something so small got me excited for the season change. Also adding a little bit of green to the shelves with THIS plates pulls in the green plants and the green pillows on the banquette.
I brought in my blush rug pillow for the texture and a little pop of color. Also I had bought THESE green velvet pillows and really love the green in this space. Two surprisingly great colors for fall.
Could. Not. Walk. Away. From that citrus plant. Isn’t it gorgeous? I added some twinkle lights to the top for a fun moody glow. And my under cabinet lights (THESE Lights are my favorite) even though you can see them under the cabinets it doesn’t bother me because I get that much needed warm glow for a cozy kitchen.
Snapped the below picture after dinner last night. It felt cozy and exactly where I wanted to be. A refuge from another busy day. A fall busy day. Because fall to me is school starting- a chance for starting fresh and intentional.
Here is to making intentional choices in our homes for fall. Choices that make us happy.
