Fall Decor in Our Home (Simple Updates)

Slowly but surely I’ve been welcoming the Fall season into our home.  One of the quickest ways to change up the decor seasonally is by switching out the pillows on the sofa.  Over the weekend, I spotted two plaid! pillow covers at Pottery Barn and brought them home.  They add the perfect cozy feeling I want for Fall with the pattern and colors (brown, tan, orange, and cream), but also have light blue, which goes great with my drapes and existing blue pillow and throw.

With the sofa properly outfitted, the rest of the house was sprinkled with Fall touches.  Don’t pumpkins signify Fall?  These ceramic pumpkins from Hobby Lobby had purple stems and leaves, so I spray painted them gold.  
Before putting them on the wooden console table, I tried them out on the gold glass table. 
A gold bowl filled with pinecones, apples, and pears sits on the second shelf.
I waited for weeks to find these lanterns half off at Hobby Lobby- I just kept missing the week they were on sale.  Finally, I picked up three- two shiny silver ones, and one giant aluminum one.  

In the butler’s pantry, I added my Hobby Lobby Harvest sign that I’ve had for years.  

                                                 Are you in the Fall decorating mode yet?

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Love the changes. I looked at the plaid covers too, but we are sporting more greens around here these days (and I didn't like the orange version). I have the same harvest sign…need to pull it out today!

  2. All of these decorations are gorgeous! I love your lanterns! I just started getting in the mood for fall. Today is the first cool crisp day, so I'm itching to buy some mums. I also decorated our dining room table.

  3. I love the color scheme! Love the idea of spray painting the stems gold. I need to get on it with the fall decorating since it is finally in the 80's in Texas! Yay! (Isn't the 80's considered fall?!?!)

  4. I LOVE these touches. I am using cream this year and may have to scoop up those Hobby Lobby pumpkins. Really love the corks in the chevron bowl, too. It all looks understated and great, girl.

  5. Just added some fall touches yesterday. The funny thing is I never would have considered Sept 17th "late" for fall decorating but being involved in the blog world this year makes me feel so far behind! I don't think I'll ever be able to do fall decorating in August though 🙂 Really like your simple touches, that's the route I took too, nothing too intense!

  6. Love the pumpkin idea. Did you paint the pumpkins cream or did they come that color? Was at Hobby Lobby today and couldn't find the exact ones, but found ones that I could spray paint it needed. Thanks for all your great ideas!!

  7. I am loving those lanterns! What great finds. Isn't Fall the best? Now, if only the Houston weather could get the memo that it's time to turn down the heat. Hope you guys are well! 🙂

  8. oooh, it all looks so cozy and great! love your pumpkins, lanterns and cozy pillows! and great find on your new bag, too!
