Simple Fall Decorating- My Fall home tour

Welcome to our fall blog hop! If you’re coming over from my friend Pipers’ at Piper at Home Welcome! I’m so happy you are here.


Adding natural elements for Fall

I live in Michigan, so I am all about Fall. It’s the time of year when Michigan shines. We spend our Saturdays in sweaters, watching college football (GO BLUE), and picking apples from the orchards just down the road. Our trees are magnificent, and living on a lake during this season seems like a dream. Fall to me is so much about the outdoors and the real show that is going on just outside our windows that I concentrate on simplicity inside.

For simple and quick Fall decor. I add touches of warm neutral colors with florals, plants, and textiles (and the occasional pumpkin thrown in). Simple feels right.

Since I am a HUGE lover of plants, you will find lots of greenery mixed in my Fall decor. These mini pumpkins with succulents are some of my favorite Fall decor. They are quick, easy, long-lasting, and you can pop them into any spot. I posted a quick DIY here.

A fresh new tea towel for Fall makes me happy.

Fresh fruit is another Fall favorite to add to my decor. We have an apple orchard down the road, so I always have a basket of apples on my table.

Fresh flowers are a regular at my house (thanks to Trader Joe’s), and it’s one of the first things I do to start transitioning to Fall. Sunflowers are a must, and orange tulips with seeded eucalyptus add a bit of Fall texture and color to my home. A copper vase provides just the perfect amount of warmth.

And speaking of copper….I love to pull out copper bowls in the kitchen this time of year. I have several. Sometimes they hold extra tea towels or become storage for extra produce from the last of the farmer’s market haul. Here I filled a bowl with the patio succulents I brought in to protect from the cold. The beautiful patina against the succulents makes a beautiful centerpiece.

Another simple and easy update I do each Fall is to switch out all of my pillows and throws to heavier textures and warmer colors—instant cozy.


I found the throw while traveling in Ireland. It’s so soft!

I even switch out a few furniture pieces with extra texture to add a cozier feel for the change in seasons. This ottoman is a perfect example.

      My shaggy stool is one of my favorite pieces! It feels a little heavy in the summer so we store it away for the cooler temps. Thank you for stopping by! 🙂

      Piper! How kind of you! I have really enjoyed pulling back and going minimal with Fall Decor this year.

  6. Laura says:

    I love all of your Fall décor Libbie! I love the natural elements and cozy textures! And, I agree with you, Fall is the best in Michigan!

    I love all the copper and the apples. I don’t think people use apples in decor like they should in the fall. It’s all pulled together so well! Great job!!
