As I started adding touches of fall to my home this year, I noticed I kept wanting to simplify my spaces. I think the above image represents this perfectly!
In years past, I felt the more decor the more festive it will be!!! I’m sure some of you can relate; I took out every pumpkin, leaf garland and tchotchke out of the bin marked “Autumn” and went to town! LOL!
I don’t know if it’s my taste changing, my boys getting older, or just wanting to simplify all aspects of my life. I just think less is more sometimes. Can you relate?
So, after picking up a few pumpkins and gourds at my local grocery store I selectively adorned my spaces with simple, understated Autumnal touches. Let’s take a look!
My front door got a makeover recently, you can read about it here. I re-purposed a wheat sheave I made last year and decided to decorate my door with it! Remember…shop the house!;)
Yes, it is has to go on the storm door….ugh! LOL!
In my kitchen…a white Cinderella pumpkin (my favorite) perfectly placed on a silver tray with eucalyptus
It smells good too! :)
The only thing I added to this kitchen shelf was a green pumpkin and LOVE how it turned out. Simplicity at its finest!
A few gourds and citrus displayed on my counter ready to use!
Three baby boos perched under an antique family heirloom (made into a chalkboard)
In my family room… a dried gourd purchased years ago (still a favorite) on my family room mantle
(ignore the lady taking the pic in the sunburst mirror…oops;)
And on the other side…a velvet pumpkin gifted to me with another sheave of wheat
All of this took no time at all. We all lead busy lives. However, placing a few touches of fall around your home is an easy thing to do. Simplicity is understated and can make a big impact on one’s mood and how they go about their day! We all have to go to the grocery store, so pick up a few pumpkins and adorn your spaces!
I promise, you will feel better;)
Have a Wonderful Week Friends!
