Funny. I’m writing a post about fall decorating when it’s 90 degrees outside! Illinois is scheduled for a couple more days of sweltering heat and then our temps drop into the mid-70s by Labor Day. Since it can be pretty hot and humid even through the first part of October, it’s hard for me to get in the mood for fall decorating until closer to Halloween. I’m not ready for the warmer hues of autumn just yet, so I find ways to transition my home decor with neutral colors and natural objects.
This French style crate is a favorite of mine. It used to be bare wood but I transformed it last year and it fits well with this fall decorating vignette. I applied the graphic at each end using the Mod Podge transfer method.
To add a little texture to my fall decorating vignette, I added a swatch of landscape burlap. I love using this stuff and recently made curtains for my family room out of it.
I think these natural and vintage items are perfect for early fall decorating. They’re not too heavy for summer and its lingering heat. Soon I’ll be sharing the book page garland tutorial. It’s so easy to make!
Be sure to stop back the week of September 9th for Seasons of Home – Autumn Edition! I’m joining 6 other bloggers to share fall decorating inspiration with you. Each day one of us will share autumn home decor. Learn more about the other bloggers and the schedule for the week in my recent Seasons of Home post.
