Take a look at my simplified, streamlined approach to decorating in my early fall home tour!
The arrival of fall is tough on me this year. I’m such a summer girl and, even though I actually like fall, I hate that it means winter is approaching. But, I’m slowly coming out of denial that summer is nearly over. Today I’ve teamed up with the lovely Marty from A Stroll Thru Life, along with a group of other talented bloggers, to share part of my early fall home tour with you. I’ll be sharing a little more of our fall home over a three week window.
For today’s tour, you’ll quickly see I’ve taken a very simplified, streamlined approach to decorating for fall this year. At this point, I have zero pumpkins. I have zero fall leaves. I have no shades of orange or yellow. However, I think you’ll see that through some of the layers and textures I’ve added, our decor feels slightly more cozy and warmer than it did in the summer months. My color palette didn’t waver this year from my favorite blues, greens, and neutrals, but the colors have become more saturated for fall. I’ve also found that fig leaves and/or buffalo check have shown up in nearly every room in our home in one way or another. Enough talk – on with the tour!
My Simplified Fall Decor
Our fall entryway so far has seen the least amount of change. I made a few pillow swaps and clipped some fresh limelight hydrangeas. Other than that, I’ve kept most of our regular pieces around and my Doxology canvas still takes center stage.
Our limelight hydrangeas are currently blooming like crazy, and they make me so happy to see! I clipped a few to use around our home for decorating purposes.

Moving on to our living room, I kept the same fig leaf pillows I used for summer, but add some rich green velvet pillows for added texture. They pair together perfectly. Then I added in some faux fig branches I picked up on clearance at the end of season last year at Pottery Barn. I still haven’t moved our giant palm tree print, but I know it’s inevitable that I’ll have to in the next week or two. As you can see below, Bearcat was just daring me to try and move him for my photo shoot.

In our dining room, I continued the fig leaf look with the same branches I have in our living room. I love how the figs look with our buffet table!
I feel like our live fiddle leaf fig grew a foot this past summer while in the dining room. I think it’s loving all the indirect natural sunlight. Don’t mind the Saran wrap on the planter – it’s to keep the curious cats out 😉

I made a few recent changes in our pretty guest bedroom. With a few pillow swaps and the addition of the fig tree from our master bedroom (it was in need of more light), it feels like a new cozy space ready for fall! I think the injection of a bit of green in the room is just what it needed!

I hope you enjoyed the first part of my early fall tour! I’ll be back next Tuesday with even more spaces in our home – and maybe some pumpkins 😉 The next stop is Decorating Delirium. Jennifer has such a beautiful home and wonderful decorating ideas! If you’re looking for even more inspiration, you need to check out all the other stops on the tour.
