I don’t have a lot of room to store seasonal and holiday decor, so I went for a more simplistic route to decorate my apartment for fall.
Mini pumpkins and gourds can be found at Trader Joe’s for an excellent price. So I scooped some up to tuck in here and there.
I love the way they look against the vintage mason jars. And at the end of the season I won’t have to store the pumpkins and gourds. I’ll just throw them away.
I tucked some in here and there on my blue hutch among the white dishes. I am beginning to love the “less is more” way of decorating.
The white dishes are the perfect backdrop for fall gourds and mini pumpkins.
In a small space h0me, you have to pick and choose a few optimum places to arrange your decor or it begins to look cluttered.
The idea is just to add some here and there to bring a touch of fall into your home.
With this strategy you don’t have to go anywhere but the grocery store, local farmer’s market or your yard to find seasonal decor.
If I had pine trees close by I’d be adding pine cones to the mix.
Tuck some in around a candle vignette. This one is on my new dining room table.
Add a couple of gourds or mini pumpkins to a vignette. It adds just a hint of the season without going overboard.
This painting on my living room wall from Hobby Lobby always reminds me of fall with the tall brown grass.
Just about every other week Hobby Lobby has their paintings on sale for 50% off.
I like to pile mini pumpkins and gourds onto a tray or dough bowl.
This is a very simple and understated way to bring fall into your home. After the fall season is over, this look will go right on into Thanksgiving.
I haven’t decided what au naturel decor I’m going to decorate with for the Christmas holiday. But I’m looking for inspiration on Pinterest.
If you have any ideas we can all incorporate into small space homes, please leave your suggestions in the comments.
And here are Charlie and Ivy pics for the day.
Charlie Ross is looking pretty spiffy after his hair cut yesterday. I got this photo of him when we went out on the patio this morning.
And here’s Ivy Lou on top of her cat tree. She loves to gaze out the window at the birds and squirrels from her high perch.
