Do you love all the beautiful fall decor you see in magazines and on Pinterest, but aren’t sure how to create the look for yourself? Here are five easy fall decorating ideas you can try in your home today to create a cozy look.
Pretend we’re sipping coffee in my kitchen and eyeballing the last Munchkin in the box because neither one of us wants to look like a greedy little doughnut fiend by popping it into our mouth faster than you can say “pumpkin spice.”
Look around my house and you will see a box of fall decorations on my dining room table, a newly crafted wreath on my front door, and an oldie-but-goody leaf monogram on our china cabinet. That is the extent of my fall decorating so far.
Keep looking and you will see the sectional pillows in disarray because the dog and kids (and husband – let’s be real) don’t see the point in having a well-styled couch.
Be careful not to step on a Lego. Or dog kibble. Or a tiny, dirty sock.
You may think, “I thought this chick was some kind of crafty home blogger. She should have her shit together and her pumpkins carved by September 1st and a spotless home.”
I hope you think, “Mmm…this is a tasty Munchkin. Oh, look – my kid has that same Lego that’s on the floor. Hey, that’s a pretty wreath. I wonder if she’ll teach me to make that?”
I admit to being a bit of a voyeur. It’s fun to scour Pinterest for homes beautifully decorated for fall, full of amazing autumn crafts. However, it is very easy to feel frustrated and a little depressed about our own spaces after looking at such delicious eye candy.
A lot – and I do mean a LOT – of work goes into decorating and photographing a home tour that’s worthy of a magazine feature. We don’t see the clutter that’s pushed just out view, and often don’t hear about the time spent shopping, crafting, and planning.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at shots from five of the best fall home tours. Instead of thinking “Ugh, my house will never look like that!” let’s instead think “Wow, here are a few fall decorating ideas that I can learn from these talented people and use in my own home.”
