Transitioning into Fall

As of yesterday, it's officially Fall, which I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around. The summer just flew by and here we are, one week shy of October (and one month shy of my 30th birthday!). As we ease into fall, I thought it would be fun to share simple and affordable ways to incorporate the new season into your decor, without going overboard with super "themed" fall decorations. What reminds you of fall? How do you incorporate the new season into your home? Thank you, as always, for sharing your thoughts and ideas!

I wish you all a fabulous weekend! I'm signing off early today for some much needed girl time with my mom! First we're heading over to Rogers Gardens in Newport Beach then lunch and a little shopping on Balboa Island :)  xoxo - Julie

Create a warm ambiance with the glow of a 
scented candle or dimmed lighting.
Clockwise from top: (1) wood-filled candlepot via west elm; (2) rustic outdoor lanterns via etsy; (3) posh lamp in gold + white via modern chic home; (4) pumpkin spice all natural soy candle via etsy


Food & Tabletop
Nothing beats a freshly baked pumpkin cupcake or 
fancy hot coffee or cider. Add a touch of texture and 
color to your table with linens and a simple centerpiece.

(1) pumpkin cupcakes with maple frosting via house beautiful (i'm dying to try this recipe! these look mouth-watering); (2) linen napkins from pottery barn; (3) irish dream espresso drink; (4) blacksmith handled serving bowl via pottery barn


Bring in texture with a cozy throw  and a 
few accent pillows in neutral or warm fall colors.  
From Top: (1) pom pom throw via west elm (yes please!!!); (2) patch lumbar monogram pillow via pottery barn; (3) love wool throw + pillow and (4) birds on a wire pillow (both will be available via modern chic home soon - email me if you need more info!).


  1. Ooo these are so snuggly and welcoming. I feel like I want to pull up the throw right away! Have the best weekend, Julie. xo

  2. i really like that pompom throw from west elm! as for me, i tend to lean towards changing around the color palette a bit. right now, i very much need new curtains, i've painted the living room and the color needs to here's looking...;) hope you enjoyed your time with your mom! happy weekend julie.

  3. Loving the black and white graphic chair with the big fluffy white blanket...want to wrap up in it and read a book!

  4. Beautiful post. October already....I know it. Crazy. Have a nice time shopping! :)
