While fall has long been my favorite season, I’ve never been one for over-the-top decorations. What I love most about seasonal decor is the added sense of coziness that comes with the warm palette.
Even on Thanksgiving, which tends to be when every single leaf- and pumpkin-related item somehow finds its way to the forefront of all home decor, I try to keep things relatively simple.
As you can see, last year I went with a plaid tablecloth with matching napkins and woven chargers. That “Give Thanks” wood carving usually hangs out on a window sill in the living room.
All that is not to say that I don’t love some seasonal decorating. Here are a few of the more subtle pieces I’ve seen this year.
Crate & Barrel’s Thankful Doormat
Honestly, this is something that could live on our doorstep year round. It’s simple, and, let’s face it, we all need to be reminded to be thankful from time to time.
Birch Lane’s Pumpkin Place Card Holders
See, I don’t hate pumpkins! These shimmering gold ones work just as well with a tradition autumn palette as they do with a more modern, neutral one.
Wayfair’s Karie Plaid Linens
Imagine the runner strewn across your coffee table, while the placemats and napkins are used in the dining room. Again, this comfortable plaid can easily be used year round.
Joss & Main’s Lyssa Pillow
To me, Halloween is a tricky holiday to decorate for. My dad always went all out, but it seems like so much trouble for a fleeting holiday. This pillow, with its orange and vaguely cobweb-like pattern seem like the perfect compromise.
I really just started adding seasonal decor to my apartment a few years ago. Maybe that marks my official transition into adulthood? How about YOU? Do you add seasonal touches to your home? How much? Do you just do “fall” or do you have specific Halloween and Thanksgiving items? I feel like I add a new piece or two every year, so I’d love to know what the norm is…
