Temperatures, spirits and retailers all point to fall’s arrival. As a girl’s thoughts turn to fall home decor ideas so does the search for seasonal home decor items. Perfectly timed with the first day of fall, the Williams-Sonoma email I received this morning showcases fall colors, textures and patterns. Inspiration is everywhere, and the sights and sounds of fall make it very easy for this girl’s thoughts to turn to fall home decor ideas.
An aromatic dried Lavender bunch knows no season and is a visual goodie all year long. Dried Lavender bunches bring forth the ooh la la fragrant factor.
Lately I’ve found myself growing more and more inspired to tackle a DIY twig & branch chandelier. I have a candle chandelier at the shop that I believe is the perfect canvas for my art interpretation or disaster. Hopefully it goes in the interpretation direction.
Covering the chandelier in its entirety with twigs and branches and perhaps painting it with spray paint is what I’m initially thinking. Color may lock the fixture into a specific palette, and leaving it in a natural state may better serve its purpose for fall and winter decorating. Keeping the fixture as a candle holder will make it holiday worthy and allow me to change the candles out to coordinate with seasonal colors.
Speaking of display ideas…
As I was cleaning out the refrigerator over the weekend (this girl really knows how to throw down a good time!) inspiration struck. My antique dough bowl has been used to house everything from magazines to fresh cut greenery, but oddly has never come in contact with dough. I retrieved it from the man cave coffee table, removed the magazines and remotes, and placed the veggies in it. It made both a pretty display and a pretty picture. A fall arrangement of pumpkins and squash, eggplant, mustard greens, red onions and snap beans awaits. I love an edible arrangement, and the vibrant colors of fruits and vegetables make great subjects for displays.
I’m looking forward to the crisp fall temps, being able to hear the high school bands performing at the local Friday night football games from our front porch, and the home decor offerings of this wonderful time of year.
