I wanted to share a quick message with you today that a sweet reader sent me after I shared some simple Fall decor updates I have been making to our home.
“It’s a good to remember that the stuff we already own can be “fixed” to be exactly what we need.” That could mean a lot of different things. From painting a table we already have, to cleaning our homes, or simply adding a new pillow to our beds instead of thinking we need an entirely new bed or sofa! I am personally testing out and experimenting with my Fall Home Decor Trend predictions and slowly adding some little changes. For Friday Favorites I thought I would share them with you!
Fall Decor Trend- Oversized Floral Prints and Texture- I shared THIS new pillow I just added to our bed over on Instagram. And everyone went crazy for it! I actually wasn’t sure if I was going to keep it. After taking down the beach art above the bed and replacing it with just some hats it really pulled it together, feels more like Fall Decor just buy changing a pillow and adding hats! I brought up THIS rug from the basement and hung it over the footboard. Layers equal cozy to me and give that Fall Vibe. And texture is a big Fall Home Decor Trend I brought up THIS chunky wool throw from storage too.
It is always a good experiment to “test” a Design Trend. I originally bought that oversized floral pattern pillow to try in our front room as a test. A test to see if I would like a Fall “trend”. Well at first I didn’t. I put it back in the bag. But typically just adding in one new thing isn’t the best styling practice, it should require a little effort- just like pulling together an outfit!
A clipping from my umbrella plant in the blush vase over on Kevins nightstand adds some life to the space. A simple update. And remember Blush is another hot color for Fall.
Fall Decor Trend- Jett Black- Spray Paint goes along way! I had someone ask me if I am worried about the fumes in spray paint. I told her that it might seem like I spray paint a lot of things, but when I use spray paint it is on little things. I wouldn’t ever spray paint a bed or a piece of furniture. THIS floor lamp base now spray painted in flat jett black really grounds the room and adds some moodiness to the space. (PS- you can go to my Instagram Highlights HERE and under “Spay Paint” you can see what I used and some tips!)
Fall Decor Trend- Shopping YOUR home first! This is totally my trend. But little things that you can try to move around is a good way to get to know what you like! I hung a piece of art low on our gallery wall to “test”. And I immediately liked it! It follows the angle of the banister and it really completes the wall. (You can find that floral painting HERE and our Gallery Wall HERE).
One thing I want to change up in our family room is the curtain panels. I just ordered THESE charcoal linen curtain panels. They just might be my fall- moody curtain panels and thru winter. I think that is one of the easiest ways to change the entire feel of the room, with your window treatments. I also ordered a new curtain rod THIS one that is on sale today only. I want it to go all the way across the window for a change.
