Fall is here and I can not wait to warm up my home with woven textures, harvest gourds, natural woods and cozy textiles. It’s my favorite time of year! And although the weather is perfect for spending outdoors, I also love to enjoy my home during this season. Inviting friends over for Sunday supper, watching football with my husband and baking delicious loaf breads are some of my favorite at-home fall activities.
I’ll be honest though, I cringe a little at most of the fall décor out there. I want my home to evoke hospitality and comfort, not spooky orange and over-glittered black. Thankfully, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite modern, yet simple fall home accessories. Think natural materials like bark wood and wheat mixed with a little understated shine found in mercury glass and copper. Layer on the texture with raffia, velvet and mongolian wool. And of course, don’t forget a delicious smelling candle! Here are my favs for the season:
