Simple Ways To Fall-ify Your Home

Happy Friday, Friends! Today, I would like to share some simple ways to fall-ify your home!
I have found over the years that layering and grouping items is really the way to add warmth to your vignettes. Now, y'all know I'm no minimalist, (I wish I was) BUT even the stores layer their vignettes. The picture above was taken at Pottery Barn. I love how they grouped all the items together.
Adding wreaths is a great way to celebrate the changing of each season. 
Same thing applies to pillows, simply change them out with the seasons. You certainly don't want your summer pillows out during fall, or your fall pillows out during Christmas.  ;)
Add a simple Autumn centerpiece to your table and set some real or faux pumpkins beside it.
If you have any baskets or trays laying around the house, simply add some pumpkins and leaves to it for a pretty vignette on any table.
I thought this was a cute idea: Add M&M's to any glass vase and add fall flowers to it. I saw this at my grocery store. I always snap photos when I see things I like and use them for inspiration later on. Do any of you do that when you're out and about?
Fall platters are a great way to jazz up your kitchen during Fall.
Owls are the latest trend for Fall. WOOT, WOOT!! You can find block letters at various stores that spell out things like: Fall, Autumn, Blessings, Thankful...perfect for Fall!
Add pumpkins and gourds to your porch display. I like to toss them into baskets at different heights. :)
If you have metal wall art, a great way to add warmth is by adding a wreath.
During fall, I like to add dried green split peas to my glass containers. It's a simple way to add a pop of color in the kitchen.
I added a pumpkin and some fall leaves and berries. I like to call this....Fall In A Jar! ;)
You've all seen those light-up pumpkins around town. I like to vary my pumpkins at different heights.
Here is another display I did in the kitchen using different kinds of beans you can get at the grocery store. I sat my glass canisters in a basket and added leaves, pumpkins, and gourds around it. In the canisters, I added a pumpkin to each one.
In the family room, I added this wreath to my metal and wood wall art.
You can buy the artificial fall flowers at any craft store and a cute way to add a little pizzazz to them is by tying them altogether with a ribbon, and then you can set it beside something.
In my family room, I have added some big fall plates to the shelves on my entertainment center.
Lastly, I could't help but share this picture. This is our dog, Bentley, taken last Fall when we got him. He was completely "obsessed" with leaves, every time he went exploring, we would find him with a leaf in his mouth.  Isn't he sweet? He is one now, and completely obnoxious, but we love him anyway! ;)
Thanks for taking the time to visit, and have a wonderful weekend! XOXO, ~Liz

  3. Hi Liz ! Love all your fall decor ideas! I really like your pillows!! And Bentley is just precious! HAPPY FALL!!

    1. Hi Lisa,
      Thank you and HAPPY FALL to you, too! :) Have a great weekend! xo, Liz

    1. Hi Jeanette,
      Thank you so much! Happy weekend to you! xo, Liz

  5. This is such a great blog and everything looks terrific! I, too, am not a minimalist. I like be surrounding by comforting colors and beautiful vignettes!

    The post you sent to our mailboxes the other day (about electronic media...cell phones in particular) is so true. I responded via email, but here is an excerpt: "Liz, Thank you for this powerful reminder that what this era has created can also be something so detrimental. I, too, was moved deeply by this important video. Social media is forever a part of our lives and it can be very beneficial, but nothing compares to real conversation and true communication. I truly enjoy your terrific blog. Our styles are very similar and I always look forward to seeing what great ideas and décor you will feature next! We are still in Summer mode here in Southern California, but there is definitely a chill in the air in the mornings and evenings. Our version of Fall has arrived! Best Wishes, Sofia."

    1. Hi Sofia,
      I did post a video called "Look Up" but that was in June. I'm a little worried that you mentioned it being the other day, because I didn't post anything except "decor" posts, LOL! I wonder how that happened, now I'm a little worried. Was this the video you saw? If so, yes, I completely agree that nothing compares to real conversation. :)

      Thank you so much for your sweet comments, it means a lot. :) I used to live in CA and can't believe how warm it's gotten over the years. Glad to hear fall as arrived. Sending you ((Hugs)) from Washington. Have a lovely weekend! xo, Liz

    2. Hi Liz,

      Yes, that is the exact video. I will forward the email I replied to (from my email address) so you can see what I received. I just thought you were resending it to your email recipients. I recently signed up to receive your emails/updates, so I was also a little surprised also by the date of the post.

      Yes, Fall is "slowly" making its appearance in Southern California. Now it's back to the car to unload all of the pumpkins we just purchased at the pumpkin patch! Have a great weekend!

  6. Bentley is such a CUTIE!! Your home is always filled with so much inspiration Liz!

    1. Hi Martina,
      Bentley is a cutie, but such a Rascal! Ha! Thank you for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend! xo, Liz

  10. Well, I think you know by now just how much I adore all of your decorating for any season and everything in between -- always so pretty and fun! Bentley is so CUTE! I'll bet he is a great little companion for you during the day when the kiddos are in school.
