Simple & Chic Decorating Ideas for Fall


There is a slight chill in in the air, pumpkin lattes are in full swing, and the leaves are starting to change.  That can only mean one thing - its time to decorate for Fall!  This year, instead of covering every single surface I have with mountains of mini pumpkins, I chose to keep things simple, chic, understated, and best of all budget friendly.  Like many of you, when I think of Fall, I instantly think of rich colors like rust, burgundy, and deep yellow, orange.  There seems to be something about this time of year that makes me want to make my home feel very welcoming with the addition of earthy textures, the smells of musk and sandalwood, and the bright contrast of the color orange.  

As I looked around my small (but mighty!) space, I found many components that I already owned that I could re-purpose, re-merchandise, and re-arrange.  Not only did this breathe new life into my home, but it was free (hence the budget-friendly part!).  Use my photos below as a guide for inspiration, then begin your own transformation.  Click on each photo to enlarge and read a simple tip or idea to help you get started.  

Happy decorating!
