I recently made a few subtle changes in my den for fall. Nothing too crazy, just a simple refresh to give off a more fall-like vibe. And today I’m sharing all of the photos with you! Fall in the den: a photo tour coming your way.
The number one reason I love white walls throughout my house is because I can so easily change each room depending on a season. I can change a few simple items, like pillows or a rug, for instance, to completely warm up a space.
And that’s what I was feeling for fall. I wanted the room to feel warm and welcoming.
I added a few pillows in fall colors to the corner basket shown above. I’m loving the brown plaid with the solid green pillow for fall.
A cozy throw blanket draped across the back of the chair shown above adds warmth and interest to the opposite corner.
Tip- when mixing patterns, like above, vary the sizes of the patterns you are mixing. This look works because the scale of the two patterns is different- a small floral mixed with a larger plaid.
I’m loving the simple vase filled with faux fall stems on the side table. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but you don’t have to have a room full of pumpkins for it to feel like fall. Faux (or real) fall stems in a vase is such an easy thing to add to any of your spaces.
On my shelves I love to change out my artwork for fall-inspired art prints. I rounded up a bunch of my favorite art prints for fall in this blog post: Pretty Artwork For The Home: Fall Edition
Tip- vary the color and sizes of your frames. I love to mix black, bronze, wood & brass.
Note- if I purchase a digital print, I always print mine at Mpix.com (giclée print on their fine art paper.)
Another great way to add fall to your spaces is through a scented candle. Even if you don’t plan to light it, a new candle in a fall-like scent will still give your space a fall vibe!
I love to add family photos taken during previous fall months to my shelves for autumn. Don’t have any? Print photos in black and white! I love that look too!
When adding vases, pots, bookends, and even books to my shelves for fall, I like to stick to a neutral color palette. I pack away my brighter decor pieces for a different season.
