“Our tree-lined streets are set ablaze,
our kitchens filled with the smells of nostalgia: apples bubbling into sauce, roasting squash, cinnamon, nutmeg, cider, warmth itself."
- Shauna Niequest
Ahhhh, October is here! Our biggest tip for decorating for fall inside your own home, is to bring in elements & feels that are special to you. What do you associate fall with?
What takes you right to those sweet memories?
How to bring in a cozy fall feel without going overboard:
- Use pumpkins in simple ways. Stacking, placing in nooks, and incorporating neutral flowers or greenery that wont steal the show.
Heirloom pumpkins are quite magical with their neutral tones , but if you’d rather stick with all traditional orange, those are always classic and you can never go wrong!
(If you don’t have heirloom pumpkins nearby – check out some awesome DIY versions like this one!)

- Use wall décor such as prints, that can be easily changed throughout each season, or base the colors within artwork to the season.
[ brown tones during fall, evergreen tones during Christmas, blue tones during winter, and bright greens/fun colors during spring and summer ]

-Display lanterns. They have a way of taking you back in time, while also creating a pretty ambiance. Perfect for hanging on hooks inside, or on the front porch.

-Bring the fall feel with scent. Essential oil diffuser blends are a chemical free alternative, and will fill the house…. as if you spend all day baking pies. (yeah right. haha!)

-Display photos from past fall memories in dough bowls, or trays throughout your home. It is always special to see some of your favorite memories displayed.
Favorite place to print is Artifact Uprising!
It’s truly all about keeping it simple, and mixing in natural décor with textures like woods and galvanized metals. We hope you have the best of times this fall!
