Fall Touches in Our Home

At this time of year, I like to add a few touches of the fall season to our apartment. I prefer decorating for fall with fresh, natural items, mixing them with other decor elements. This year, I used pumpkins, chrysanthemums, and pears, among other things. I employed blue and white whenever I could and kept things simple, incorporating the fall seasonal decor in only a few rooms—the ones that we use most often.

Our elevator foyer:

In the living room, pictured below, I decorated the ornamental fireplace. I keep the fireplace sparsely decorated in the summer, so I enjoyed adding a few more layers to both the mantle and the inside of the fireplace to cozy it up a bit for the fall season:



Adding brass and gold elements, like these vintage brass candlesticks, the modern decorative orb, and the antique books with gold lettering, adds warmth to the space:




I tried several variations for the fireplace interior:




The kitchen:



Blue and white cotton plaid napkins like those pictured below are currently in the dollar spot section at Target at a price of $3 for a two pack!


My daughter has had so much homework that she hasn’t had a chance to paint me a chinoiserie pumpkin, so I decided to give it a try (don’t laugh!):


The family room:




The seasonal additions to the family room include a faux antler on the coffee table:



Thanks so much for stopping by today.  How do you decorate for fall in your home?

  1. What fun to have this tour & to see the little autumn treasurers here and there! I like to create an autumn display on the wide windowsill over the kitchen sink, where I can enjoy it often.

    1. I am glad you visited Nancy! I always enjoy seeing your intricate seasonal displays on your windowsill. I don’t like to put anything on our windowsill because I am afraid it will draw attention to our awful view into the back of another high-rise! Enjoy your day!💙


    1. It has been so warm for us in Chicago Janet that I wasn’t ready to to move on to fall decorating, but when October rolled around I figured it was time! I love green and white pumpkins too and will look forward to seeing them in your home! Enjoy the day and thanks so much for sharing.💙


  2. Lovely to see your home dressed for fall! I agree with you, it’s time now… I’m planning to swap the throw pillows for cozier ones, add a faux fur blanket on the sofa…maybe some mums… Great post, Elizabeth!
