Making Your Home Feel Like Fall

Happy OCTOBER! It's good to be back to blogging and back into the swing of real life, after such a long break while planning for our wedding (then the actual wedding & honeymoon!) I have some fun fall posts coming your way, along with lots of wedding recap posts very soon.

Transitioning into fall is really fun for me, but I feel the need to do it slowly. If I'm being honest, it's hard to say goodbye to summer! I feel funny about putting out all my fall decor all at once (especially before the leaves have even changed!), so I try to bring things out in stages. Here's my process:

1. I'm not really into the orange and red colors, so I try to keep our fall decor neutral. I made these white and gold foil pumpkins last year that I put out again this year. Arranging them in a gold bowl is the perfect accent.

2. I brought out my warm blankets and draped them over our blanket ladder and couch. My favorite blanket is from Costco, if you can believe it! But here are a few of my other faves:

Anything you can do to add texture to your home in the cooler seasons is a great way to warm things up.

3. Next I'll add some fall flowers to my porch. I picked up some Mums today to make the porch a little more festive. (Mums aren't my favorite, but here in Michigan, that's really all you can find and I actually love the peachy pink and white ones I found). I'll be sharing a picture of them on Instagram today. @michaelanoelledesigns 

4. I've got my eye on some really sweet fall pillows to spruce up my sofa for the season, too.  I'm a big fan of adding a few neutral seasonal pillows to the mix!

Some favorite pillows from Etsy:

5. Next on my list is to find a new delicious smelling Fall candle. When I can, I love to support small, local businesses, so I think I'll go to my local antique store, The Found Cottage, to find a homemade pumpkin spice or apple pie candle. 

Some favorite candles:

Once we get into November, I'll probably hang a little thanksgiving banner and put out a Give Thanks print. As I said, easing my way into the new season is more fun! It gives me time to really enjoy each part of Fall. 

How are you transitioning your home to reflect Autumn?

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Welcome back! I love how on your side of the world you decorate for the different seasons... and you get all the good holidays during winter to make it less depressing!! There is NOTHING in winter here so nothing to really decorate for. It would be more fun if there was. P.S loved following along little snaps of your wedding and honeymoon X
