Sharing tips and must-haves for transitioning summer home decor to fall with items you already have in your home.
Most of us decor enthusiest get giddy with excitement at the changing seasons. We cant wait to pull out all the pumpkins and fall color decor. BUT what can you do in between summer and fall?
Completely empty out the space you are about to decorate. I mean take it ALL DOWN!
This is a great opportunity to do a deep clean also, which let me tell you it always needs.
After the mantel was competely cleared, I got to work “shopping” my home for the other items I would use. Most of us have some neutral floral stems in our collection of decor items, books and pottery.
Start with the largest decor piece. Here you can see it is the sunflower painting that I gave a makeover, You can check that out HERE
I had visions of whites, woods, and greens. I remembered the metal soft green shoe shine box I had picked up a few months ago.
It was the perfect color to coordinate with the green background of the painting, I stood it up and used it as a vase.
I filled it with some natural-toned florals and feathers. Feathers are one of my favorites to use in fall decor.
This is a perfect example of thinking outside the box, get it shoebox. Ok sorry, I had to do it. Just because it isn’t a vase doesn’t mean it can’t be used as one.
That leads me to;
Create visual interest using items in groups of threes & stay within the same color pallette. For the summer to fall transition I wanted soft earth tones.
Take a look at both sides of the painting. I used a small grouping of items on both sides. I kept my color palette of whites, woods, and greens.
The ironstone vase and the pottery foot warmer are both white, the books have warm earthy wood tones and of course, let’s not forget the beautiful fresh greenery.
Using the books I created a variety of heights. This is also a great way to create interest. The varying heights help your eyes move around your displays.
The last thing I added was the vintage wooden ice cream bucket on the hearth. The warm wood against the white brick is just BEAUTIFUL.
A few more neutral florals in the bucket and I was done.
I hope these tips help you create a transitional summer to fall display and MORE!
