I’ll just say it: a lot of fall decorations are overdone and boring. That’s not to say that a giant ceramic pot that reads “Halloween Candy” or a tea towel with some sort of turkey pun on it isn’t fun and awesome (because it is). But if you’re craving new decorating ideas for fall, we’ve got you covered.
Believe it or not, there are plenty of home decor details that scream fall, but in a timeless, whispery way. I understood? Luckily, all of your favorite home decor retailers, from West Elm to Nordstrom and Society6, are on the same fall aesthetic page.
Basically, you add a shot of espresso to your pumpkin spice latte! It’s still the same, but with a little more sparkle. So instead of filling a vase with bright orange plastic oak leaves, install an oil diffuser filled with dry fall flowers. Obviously you still need pumpkins, but swap out this set of simple pumpkins for a gorgeous glass pumpkin.
