I’m normally breaking out my boots and sweaters, ready to embrace my inner pumpkin spice latte this time of year (although ew, not really a PSL fan – anyone else out there with me?). However, I’ve been a little slow to hop on the hayride this year – summer just felt way too short with the Mr. gone. Alas, the leaves are already changing in Michigan, so it’s time to reluctantly get with the program and share a few simple fall home decor updates I’ve added to the living room.
To get in the mood, I made homemade applesauce and pumpkin muffins with butterscotch chips to channel some autumnal vibes. Then, I hit the backyard with my scissors. I love cutting some of the beach grasses from our yard to bring the fall indoors.
This Karl Forester is from out by the pool. I tucked a few bunches of it into these new vases that I snagged at Target to fall-ify our mantel.
I mentioned Juniper Print Shop in my Friday Feels post last week, and here is the print I downloaded from their site. The subtle golden fall colors are so pretty, and it was only $20. I put it in a frame that I already had, and it’s really changed the look of the mantel.
In that same post last week, I shared the green and oatmeal-colored Target pillows that hopped in my cart.
This green checked one over here might have just followed me home too…
I love how they mix in with the other pillows I used for summer. You don’t need to swap everything around each season, just adding a fresh pillow or two can really update a space. You can even shop your home instead of the store. I added this big knit blanket that was tucked away in the linen closet. It used to be on our bed a few years ago and now we all fight over snuggling up in this corner.
I love my big planter of jade that normally sits on the coffee table but I swapped it out for a vase filled with some more beach grass. I’m not sure what this stuff is called, but it grows along a marshy spot on the lake, so I snipped a few. It’s so feathery and pretty. The jade found a new home on the dining table for now.
I bought these pretty candlesticks at a local store called Stoffer Home this spring, and they are the perfect touch of coziness on our sofa table.
Other than playing musical pillows and snipping some free stuff from the yard, this is as fall as I’m getting on the inside this year! It feels good to simplify, but still have things feeling fresh for the new season.
My window boxes and front porch are up next as well as a few more batches of applesauce!
