Easy Fall Decor Changes to Make to Your Home Right Now

Friday, October 12, 2018
If you know me, you know that autumn ain't my thang. Maybe it's the personal vendetta I have against the fall transition from summer, or maybe I just can't fux with any season that's not summer. 

NVM, fun fact: it's probably the trauma I suffered as a child around Halloween time. My parents took me to Party City to pick out a costume. The ghoulish decorations always scared the shit out of me, so I stayed very far away from the horror mask aisle. I don't remember much except turning the corner of one of the aisles and a bloody masked man jumping out at me, yelling "RAHHH!". I cried & screamed bloody murder so f*cking loud that Party City legit declared a Code Yellow. Turns out, that masked man was my father.

Needless to say, I literally loathe anything Halloween. Except pumpkins; pumpkins are chill.

Now that I finally have my own place (which just so happens to be on the beach), Seasonal Affective Disorder is in FULL effect. Summer is over, it's windy AF, and the local snowbirds have officially flown south for the winter. And I'm just over here trying (emphasis on trying) to get into the holiday spirit.

Here are some easy Fall decor changes you can make to your home without breaking the bank or looking too gruesomely tacky. The goal was to swap out some of my year-round decor for some rustic autumn looks instead of adding clutter.


1.  UPDATE YOUR TABLE RUNNERS


"Gather" table runner from Big Lots (only $8! Steal)

Others I'm loving, available on Amazon:
   

2.  SWAP OUT YOUR THROW PILLOWS / SHAM COVERS


'Fall' Throw Pillow  |  Big Lots
Set of 2 Velvet Throw Pillow Covers  |  in color Velvet Green; Amazon
Teal Pumpkin Throw Pillow  |  Big Lots
Round Knit Pouf  |  in color Off White; Amazon

Did you know that you don't have to buy a brand new throw pillow if you're tired of your current throw pillows? A few years ago I posted a life hack: Amazon offers a humongous selection of throw pillow COVERS that are literally a fraction of the cost. Finally, a solution to those ugly generic throw pillows that came with your couch for free.

3.  ADD FALL PLACEMATS, MINI PUMPKINS AND ALL. THE. SCENTS.


Maple Leaf Placemats  |  gift; similar here & here


4.  HANG GARLAND + ADD TCHOTCHKES TO MANTLE OR TV STAND


White Pumpkin Garland  |  Target, sold out;  similar in orange here
Galvanized Lighted Metal Pumpkin  |  Hobby Lobby
Furniture Details  |  See post: Our Seaside Boho Corner Apartment


5.  TRADE FLORALS FOR COTTON STEMS + FALL FOLIAGE


I posted a full tutorial for these DIY Faux Rustic Cotton Stems here!





What are some of your simple fall decor secrets? Let me know so that I can take notes for next year!
