Transitioning Into Fall

We're just a couple days away from the "official" first day of Autumn and I'm so ready. Even though Summer is my favorite season, it's always nice to transition into the cooler months of Fall and finally get some relief from the hot summer days. I'm looking forward to watching the leaves change into rich colors of red and yellow on the trees; I'm looking forward to hot cups of coffee and cider on cool nights; I'm looking forward to big pots of homemade soup; I'm looking forward to fires in the fireplace; and I'm looking forward to adding a few touches of fall decor around our apartment! Today I've rounded up some of my favorite ideas to make the transition into the new fall season. What are you looking forward to most this fall?

[Add a few colorful textured pillows to your sofa. Ruffled Rose Pillows via Etsy]

[Harvest Corn decoration idea]

[Fill glass beakers and jars with large colorful fall leaves]

[Fill a vintage wooden crate or container with fall squash, mums, flowers, and more]

[Line your mantle or dining table with a candelabra or tons of single candles]
[Add a colorful throw to your sofa or favorite upholstered chair]

[Curl up with one of these Cozy Throws from West Elm]

[Have friends over for dinner and serve up homemade Roasted Butternut Squash Soup]

[Fill Mason jars with votive candles and place all around your home to create a soft ambiance]

[Fill your home with the scent of freshly baked Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!]

P.S. Please be sure to visit tomorrow, as I'll FINALLY be revealing the AFTER pictures from the Good Shepherd Charity Project I completed in June! I can't wait to show you how everything came together!)

  4. That first image with the sofa and the floral pillows is simply devine. I'm a summer gal, but like you I appreciate elements of fall. I'm looking forward to apple picking with my children. Family movie night with the fireplace glowing. Wearing boots! Seeing my children dress up for Halloween. Walking the streets of NYC with the autumn crisp air. I'm looking forward to autumn being here!

  5. I want that throw!! i'm loving all the jewel tones!

  6. the oatmeal raisin cookies made my mouth water, I think I am going to have to go make a batch now :) and the ruffled pillows with the eclectic mixture of frames... AMAZING! xx
