Fall has officially arrived!! Now it’s time to bring the outdoors in by incorporating the colors of the season into your home decor.

I created this tablescape two years ago. It totally gives me heart eyes when I look back at it. So much pumpkin yumminess!! I may have to recreate the look this year.

Pumpkins don’t just have to be porch decor. Bring those beauties inside!

When it comes to fall decor there are so many ways to cozy up your home. The beauty outdoors from the changing colors of the season is great inspiration for colors & elements you can bring inside. I chat about how to add cozy touches to your home with throw pillows, blankets & more here. For now, let’s focus on bringing in natural elements like pumpkins and greenery to take that coziness up a notch.

A beautifully colored Cinderella pumpkin is the perfect addition to this spot. A cozy throw and velvety pillow add texture to soften the look.

Of course the main natural element of the season in my opinion is pumpkins. With so many sizes and colors it’s easy to incorporate them into your decor. Even if you’re not a big fan of seasonal decor you can implement touches just by adding a couple of simple pumpkins to a shelf or table. There is a plethora of faux pumpkin options out there…fabric, wood, ceramic, foam, etcetera. They all make my heart go pitter-patter. Today though, I want to focus on the real deal grown on a vine cuties that I just can’t get enough of.

For my table this year I did a mix of real and faux pumpkins on one of our handcrafted long decorative trays available in our shop.

Just like us, pumpkins come in every shape, size and color you could dream of. The natural beauty of each ones imperfect perfection has me swooning every year around this time. When I enter the local grocery store, farm store or Lord help me, the pumpkin patch, it’s full on blackout mode. I can’t resist bringing ALL of those cuties home and finding a spot to let them shine.

On the shelf on our living room I decorated with a white pumpkin & an accent of seeded eucalyptus to give more interest to the vignette. Handcrafted wood lantern and wood & glass bead strand are available in our shop. Handcrafted corbels are the brackets for this shelf.

A simple mini white pumpkin can be used in a multitude of vignettes, so those are my number one suggestion if you’re just starting with adding in real pumpkins to your home decor.

A yummy fall candle, a seasonal bead strand and a white pumpkin pull this simple vignette together.
My kitchen counter staples are breadboards, antique white dishes & pitchers and seasonal touches. Here I added mini pumpkins and eucalyptus as my seasonal pieces. I also added one of our handcrafted wood pumpkins.
Obviously you can’t go wrong with a book, a candle and a bead strand. Here’s another vignette with those same decor items. Add a white pumpkin and seasonal floral touches to instantly give it fall vibes.
I love using white dishes to elevate items in my kitchen decor. Thrift stores are a great place to find antique and vintage dishes for a great price.
Okay, so apparently I have a candle obsession… I can’t help it, they smell soooo good!! Check out my fave candles here.
Look at the sweet curly vine still on this pumpkin stem…swoon!!

Bring in the pops of seasonal color

I tend to use a lot of neutral colors in my home decor, so I am mostly drawn to the white, pale blue and peach colored pumpkins. If you prefer a bit more traditional fall color go for yellow, orange or striped pumpkins. In the tablescape I created a couple years ago I mixed neutrals with the more traditional colors.

By mixing the traditional fall colors with softer pale tones in this tablescape it helped make the look blend well with my other decor.
Seeded eucalyptus is a great accent greenery. I place sprigs of it throughout my decor to soften the look & add an additional natural element.
Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! Next to the stove I ground all the frequently needed items in a basket or on a tray. Here I added a mini pumpkin and some seeded eucalyptus to a vintage creamer. The whitewash pumpkin is an item we handcraft and offer seasonally in our shop.

Mix real and faux to add more interest to the space

In both floral arrangements and vignettes I like to mix real with faux to create interest and give a more realistic look. In many of my floral arrangements I use faux florals and real greenery to add more natural movement to the look. I do the same with my pumpkins. In areas where I use multiple pumpkins I mix real with faux because it adds more texture and realness.

For my table centerpiece I used a mix of real and faux pumpkins and gourds. Pop in sprigs of seeded eucalyptus to add more texture to the look. Can you tell which pumpkins are real?
Even the bedroom gets a little sprinkle of pumpkins. I sometimes like to use dried naturals in place of florals or greenery for fall. The double tassel bead strand here is a new style in our shop. I love the statement it makes with the oversized tassels and chunky beads.

This old champagne bucket (thanks mom!) is great for making seasonal floral arrangements. I implemented the colors in other areas of my home for fall to tie the look in with the room. I added seeded eucalyptus and silver dollar eucalyptus with the faux florals and dried barley to add natural movement. When it dries out it holds its shape pretty well. If you’re worried about it drying out you could add water depending on the vessel so the greenery stays alive longer. I’ve done this for a few arrangements in the past. The double tassel decor strand and handcrafted decorative tray are both available in our shop.

There you have it!! I hope this inspired you to think of real pumpkins as more than just outdoor decor. Bringing them inside to decorate with truly adds such beauty and texture to any space inside or out.

Happy Fall, friend!!

Bringing in natural elements to your Fall Decor

Styling decor beads in your home. Decor bead strands add texture and beauty to your home

Decor beads are a fun and easy way to add interest & beauty to any vignette

One of the most frequently asked questions I get about the products we make is, “what are decor beads strands?” My answer…they are a beautiful decor accent piece that adds a pop of texture and interest to a vignette. But how exactly do you style them? If you’ve never used them before you may not see a use for them. Prepare to fall in love because I am going to show you a few ways to easily incorporate them into your home decor.

Draping a strand of decor beads over a book stack is one of the most common way to display them.

Did you know we handcraft and sell a variety of décor bead strands in our shop? I started crafting the strands years ago as a hobby. I am so humbled to now have the opportunity to have the strands I create become a part of our customers homes. It’s definitely a pinch me moment to think about the fact that the strands I’ve created are now in people’s homes all over the country!

When it comes to creating a vignette it is important to include layers

Let’s talk layers! When it comes to decorating my home, just like a cake, the more layers the better!! If we’re sticking to a cake analogy, and why not?!… Then think of the decor beads as the pretty layer of extra frosting on the cake. Not the base layer, we’re talking the beautiful added layer of frosting flowers and balloons that as a kid we’d fight over. (Okay, I’ll admit, even as an adult I still want that piece.) So the beads aren’t the frosting on the cake, they are the extra frosting… ya baby!!

Here I incorporated a wood & glass mixed strand of beads with seasonal colors to add an extra layer of visual interest.

How many strands is too many?? Answer: You can never have too many!

Once you see how easily a vignette is transformed by adding decor beads to it, you will realize you want them in every vignette. I’m not just saying that because I sell them. Truly they make styling your home so much fun!

Pictured is one of our looped strands. I placed it at the base of a candle to add extra texture to this vignette.
Our full glass strands make a statement. Pictured is the pale blush with ivory tassel.
There’s really no rhyme or reason to how you style the beads. I draped this strand on an old book to add that extra layer with the candle and brass bunny.
Our Aquamarine full glass strand is one of my favorite colors to use in spring and summer. Here I draped it over an old flea market spindle that I painted.
Our jumbo looped strands make a statement with their oversized tassel. A large vase is the perfect way to display a jumbo looped strand.

Changing decor strands out seasonally is the perfect way to incorporate the colors of the season throughout your home

If you are wanting to add in a seasonal touch, or incorporate a color scheme into a space our glass strands always make a statement. The wood and glass strands are full of texture, so you can’t go wrong there either. We are constantly adding new colors and patterns of strands to our shop. It is fun to let the colors of the season inspire us to create new options for our customers.

For my Valentine’s Day shelf decor I added a strand of wood beads with a blush pink tassel. The color tied into the shades of pink I used throughout this space.

You Can never go wrong with neutral

Not sure where to start?? Decorating is supposed to be fun, so don’t overthink it. If you aren’t sure where to start when it comes to adding decor bead strands to your home…go neutral. Neutral strands can be used year round and fit into any style or color scheme in your home.

I added a wood strand with cream tassel to this vessel to keep things neutral. Candles and a touch of greenery finish off the look.

Are you ready to add the extra frosting to your cake?

Alrighty, are you inspired to incorporate decor beads into your decor? I hope this was a helpful way to get your creative juices flowing. Now, go style those beads and tag us on Instagram to show how you styled that extra layer of “frosting” to your decor.
