How To Decorate For Fall Without Pumpkins

It's been a week since I blogged, but more importantly...a week since that awful dread of Hurricane Irma came our way. I am happy to report that we are fine and have been working and enjoying the comfort of electricity at our beach home that was spared a direct hit. Our home in Miami (3 hrs away) is STILL without power, but it should be back soon and from all accounts our home was spared there too. Sigh of relief...and will see what the inside looks like once the shutters come down and if any mold has managed to sneak in. But let's talk pumpkins on this Saturday...or in this case, lack of.

Weeks before the storm threats I was invited to join in on some Fall Home Tours with blogging friends and have two full posts coming this week. Honestly I was not prepared to be here at the beach where my decor is clean and sparse. So I took it on as a delightful challenge and one to take my mind off what has been occurring in my home state of Florida. Pumpkins be gone...or just very lightly used for autumn.

How To Decorate For Fall Without Pumpkins


As in all seasonal decorating I tend to approach COLOR first. Here the colors mimic the view outside of the ocean and the sand, so why change that for fall?

The master bedroom has lots of sand tones and deep, angry cobalt blue sea reflected in fall toned pillows on the bed. 
Don't change your linens out if you love white like I do...just add in some color of the season with pillows and cozy throws!

In the kitchen I've added a simple copper bowl with red apples and feel that touches like these throughout the home bring elegant warmth. The soy candles are some of my favorites from the GROVE COLLABORATIVE and I have a special $25 FREE OFFER for you at the end of my post!

 Natural elements from the storm suggest fall so quietly, so head on outside and see what sort of twigs or branches YOU can find to display. It doesn't have to be orange to be autumn infused.

If indeed you ARE a fan of orange...there are lots of plants in the garden centers right now like mums and more that are on the traditional side of the fall rainbow. I clipped these from a bush outside and placed them in a deep blue glass vase beside the bed.

The softer side of fall can easily be accomplished with peach tones, as in this arrangement of David Austin roses and more. You'll see all of these touches in more detail in future FALL HOME TOUR posts soon and I'm excited to share with friends!

You may not think of AUTUMN when you see this collection of old bottles that are faded to perfection, but this coming week I'll teach you some "outside the box" tricks for a new romantic fresh fall look!

Finally...in the kitchen I love to have seasonal products and scents and I've partnered with my friends at the GROVE COLLABORATIVE once again to bring you a great offer! I don't know about you, but I've been using Mrs Meyer's products in both of our homes for years now and love everything about them. They offer quite a few seasonal scents and I'm a stickler for themes in packaging and feel that even everyday objects like dish soap can and should appeal to the eye. It's the little things...
