With that being said there are some things that we change, and add to make our rooms feel more "Fall".
Something about Fall puts me in a reading mood. I know people talk about lounging by the pool in the summer with the latest best seller, but for me Fall is the season for reading.
Roaring Fire, Hot cup of Tea, Great Book, I'm set!
I wrote all about out new flannel bed in our Fit for Fall post last week! But for me Fall and Flannel go together like peanut butter and jelly, like spaghetti and Meatballs, like Oprah and making people cry!
And a little plaid is always welcome in fall!
Fall is the time to get into the kitchen! After of summer of cooking outside and chopping up salads, Fall is the time to get back into the kitchen and whip up some good old fashioned comfort food!
There is something so homey about a chess board! I don't have any fond childhood memories of Chess! I think the first time I played chess was on the computer! But I love a game of chess, Lee always beats me but I still love to play!
Having a chess set out makes it much more likely you'll play it, and just looks cozy and welcoming to me!
Wood! Thick wood candle pillars, wood bowls, woven baskets! Anything in a wood tone! Even a jute rug seems to have a fall feel to it!
So take the tablecloth off your wood table and let it go naked! Wood is in for Fall! ;)
Flowers are a must any season, but make sure that they're fall flowers because nothing looks weirder than tulips in a vase, in October!
These were my pick me up flowers from Lee last Friday! For those who were wondering the vase is from a local second hand store! It's actually a cookie jar!
Apples are hands down my favorite/go-to fall decor item! I have always used bowls of apples as fall decoration! Apples come in the perfect shades of red, yellow and orange for fall!
You could also use pears or some other fall fruit! A bowl of nuts also looks very seasonal! I like the idea of using something you would already have or use (like food) as decoration, then you can admire it for a few days, and when you're done looking at it you can eat it! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner (or apple dinner as it were)!
Like I said, nothing too crazy! We like to decorate for Halloween so our "Fall Decorating" usually involves a dismembered body or two! ;)
