the half of the week is over and I didn´t do anything until today and have nothing planned the next days including the weekend which means we are going to stay in every day and enjoy the cool Fall weather with hot chocolate and all the delicious foods.
I also have to say sorry for the flood of picuters but I love Fall and decorating our house so I really couldn´t decide which ones to pick. So when it comes to Fall decoration I usually stay true to my theme.
It wouldn´t be Fall decor without any pumpkins and in my opinions there can´t be enough and I have some everywhere. From real mini pumpkins to creme colored ceramic colored to real looking miniatures. Pumpkins are the best.
Candles are not only great to make your house smell like the holiday you are going for but also for decoration. From Yankee Candles to Bath & Body Works there isn´t a ugly candle. Beautifully made and in so many different colors available candles are for sure an eyecatcher.
Decorating with all the common and rich Fall colors like burgundy, orange and a golden yellow provide a even more fallish surrounding. I got some adorable candle holder and also got a bunch of artificial flowers in said colors. This really helps to set the mood for all your decor.
Are you decorating seasonal or do you have the same decor year round?
since this is the week which makes Fall finally official I have some fun Fall posts for you guys coming. The first of all is a home decor post I am sharing today. I love to play with my table scapes throughout the seasons and of course I had to try out a new one since Fall is my favorite season. I was thinking about a leopard print Fall inspired table scape but after I saw these vibrant burgundy pieces I was sold immediately. Also this might be the more Fall appropriate color. But still thinking about the leopard too.
Most of the pieces I got from Depot Online but I am also trying to link similar pieces for you. Table scapes have somehow always been one of my favorites to play with in Fall and Winter. I get so many ideas and I can get really creative by setting them out.
The pumpkin shaped plates are the perfect pieces to serve aperitifs or little snacks before or after dinner. A charcuterie or cheese plate – how I made – is also great and a huge crowd pleaser.
To set some focus and also have the color reflect in the table decor I got small plates in burgundy for the salad and also little small velvet leaves in the same shades. Throwing in as much color as possible never hurts.
Is there a home decor trend you love above any other thing?
since Fall is finally here I started decorating inside and of course ordered myself some Fall candles. Candles always get me in the right mood for any season. And since my favorite season is Fall the most of my candles smell like pumpkin – also my favortie scent.
I light another candle every night and love that my whole house smells like Fall then.
Staying at home on a cool and misty Fall day and cuddling up on the sofa with some comfortable loungewear, a great book and an awesome smelling pumpkin candle is THE dream every time Fall rolls around.
Most of my candles are from Village or Yankee Candle or Bath & Body Works and I get them over Candle-Dream or the Yankee Candle site.
These are the candles I got for this years Fall decoration:
Leaves, Thankful and Pumpkin Patch from Bath & Body Works
It has been over three years now since we moved into our house and I have to admit we are near crossing the finishing line (yes, it took me this long) on remodelling and decorating and furnishing. I re-did room after room and it took me a while to find out what I wanted for each of the rooms. The house was ready as we moved in but we didn´t like all of the wall colors so we first had to paint and then move on with decorative bricks or wallpaper or art.
Art itself is a difficult theme to talk about cause it somehow is like style. You see pictures or paintings you will like and a lot you will dislike. What your friends think looks amazing might creep you out and vice versa. And another huge factor in terms of art is the price. If you want to have an original hand painted piece it can cost you up to thousands of Euros (or even more) and who can or wants to spend so much money?! I am sharing an affordable way on how to decorate your walls with pieces you love for an affordable price. All you have to do is find what you like and be a little creative.
Places to look for art
Ikea // Let´s start with the easiest place and that would be Ikea for me. Simply because you walk in and choose what you like and leave. Most of their pieces are already framed or canvases but they also have different kind of pictures without a frame and a huge section with all shapes and color of frames so you can get creative on your own. I got my Jamea Dean and Audrey Hepburn cavases from Ikea and love them a lot. They are a classic piece in color and print and will match everywhere around the house.
Amazon // Another place to look for prints, pictures, paintings is amazon. I got my “Prada Marfa” canvas from amazon and I absolutely love it. It is hanging above my makeup table and totally completes my little beauty corner.
Etsy // And last but definitely not boring and with the most choices – the Etsy market place. I love to browse all of their downloadable pictures cause so I get them right away and can decide which kind of frame and size I like. It is the perfect way to customize your picture.
What kind of art do you prefer in your home? Does it have to be rare and exclusive or do you combine personal photos with modern prints.
As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
