How to get Autumn into your home decor

I love Autumn, everything starts to get a little more snugly and you can dim those lights a little earlier.  So now is the time to get the home decor all Autumn-ed up.  This certainly doesn’t mean spending any more money on new things, as we all have too much stuff and too little money, right.  We can just make Autumn come into our homes with a few bits of colour and imagination.  For me the colours of Autumn are oranges, browns and reds inspired by all those falling leaves.  How old do you have to be before your too old to swoosh your feet through Autumn leaves on the pavement? Take my word for it you are never too old.

So theses are my three simple fixes to bring some Autumn into you home decor with the minimal of effort.

Number one: Cluster all those brown’s, oranges and reds together with a smattering of green of course.

My living room is grey, as is everyone it seems.  I’m not going to redecorate for the seasons, life it just too short but I can pull all my dark things together just to make it all a little richer.  These are a few of my Autumn inspired pieces I will try and showcase this Autumn. It can’t all be white decor you know.

Have a rummage around and see what furniture combo you can put together, you know that dark old chair that sits in the bedroom, maybe and few old brown books you’ve got sitting in cupboards and if the spines are all too colourful why not stack them so you just see the pages.  The dusty library will be a look of 2018.

Number 2: Say it with flowers

There are so many inexpensive flowers in the supermarkets these days but if you have a garden you might be lucky enough to get them for free.  The weekend before last there was a bit of work needing doing in the garden meaning digging up a huge hydrangea, which was absolutely smoothed in flowers.  Here’s a pic of how many there were.  I couldn’t keep them all but shared them with the neighbours and grabbed some myself for an Autumnal table centre piece which has been sitting on my kitchen bench and still looking good.

Don’t forget the foliage either.  Bunches of twigs, pine cones scattered about the place…get creative.

Number 3: Food food food. 

I do like my food and my cooking does go a bit more rustic  in the Autumn months, not that it’s ever fine dining in my house.  So take advantage of the season and get some squashes and pumpkins.  If you don’t like to eat them then just use then as decoration.  A bowl of squashes really dress up a kitchen.  Hey and we are getting near to Halloween too so this weekend I got myself a little pumpkin and did a bit of carving, it created a great little decoration for an evening with a good friend.  The pumpkin soup I made was not so bad too (I never like to waste)

Changing seasons for me means changing decor.  A few tweaks here are there keeps it interesting, but it doesn’t have to mean spending money and getting more stuff  – right?

Have some fun this Autumn, it’s not too late to Autumn-ise your home

    • Hi Kerri, glad you liked the blog post. the Autumn scene is gorgeous but I must confess I didn’t take that shot. It’s all a bit too wet at the moment where I am for the leaves to look that crisp. The hydrangea pics however are mine and I had great fun stacking all the heads on the steps. Hope you continue to enjoy the blog
