Fall decor in our house doesn’t get a ton of time to really shine. Between Halloween and Christmas, there just isn’t much time to enjoy it as Christmas seems to creep closer and closer to Halloween each year…not that I’m complaining. 🙂 (I might be one of those crazy people that starts listening to Christmas music before Halloween.) I do really enjoy getting the living room decked out for a least a few weeks once school starts each September, and decorating a Thanksgiving table, but those tend to change quickly. The kitchen is really the one spot that I can put some fall home decor and let it sit and enjoy it for a few months. Affiliate links are included in this post.
I love to bring in natural elements each fall. Grass trays, wood accessories, and this year after shooting our Thanksgiving table, I fell in love with all the fresh herbs, so I decided to bring some of them into the kitchen.
I always have fresh and faux basil around the kitchen, but bringing in the potted thyme and rosemary added even more pops of fresh green and I love the texture the different leaves add.
I love art in the kitchen…I had a few pieces in there last year too, this year I added a new piece that I found in a great shop in Laguna Beach.
This tray has been a staple in the kitchen since it was first completed…just about 2 years ago. I LOVE it. The wood and brass are a pretty combination and it’s a great size.
I keep a ton of clear vases around and love to fill them with quick little arrangements I whip up from Trader Joe’s bunches of greens and flowers.
Just a tip, when you are putting flowers and greens in a vase, be sure to strip the stalks of leaves where they will be in the water. It keeps mold from growing on the leaves that end up submerged in the water and helps the arrangement stay alive and healthy longer. 🙂
A couple of wood cutting boards layered and standing behind the stove are a great way to warm things up. I found that round one at an antique store. It’s all beat up and has a ton of character. I love to mix antiques into every room. They bring such warmth and a great story into every space.
I picked up this pretty little handmade ceramic dish at one of my favorite shops in Newport Coast. And the brush from a little shop in the Cotswolds. I love to collect little treasures like this on our travels. They aren’t things that necessarily scream “souvenir” but I love it when each piece in a room has a little story and a memory attached to it.
I can’t get enough of these chairs. I have them in both white with blue stitching and blue with white stitching…they are so fun! They make them in all natural too, which I think would be really fun to work in somewhere in the house too.
I love real basil, it smells SO good and the color is so vibrant…but if you are worried about keeping a plant alive, check out this faux basil plant. I own this one as well and it is SUCH a good faux! Everyone thinks it’s real!
You can get a better feel with this shot just how the walk in pantry that I designed fits into the overall space. It’s a long, rectangular room and I think adding this pantry really connected the whole space and made the kitchen feel bigger.
I always add a cute rug with a great rug pad in front of the sink. It’s nice to have something softer to stand on while washing dishes and it’s an easy piece to change every once in a while to freshen things up.
