My 15 Minute Fall Kitchen

Bringing Fall touches into our homes doesn’t have to be time consuming. We are all busy with jobs, families, and activities so let’s keep it simple. 

The Fall season is one of the loveliest here on the east coast. The changing of leaves is a sight to behold. The vibrant orange, reds, browns, and yellows are stunning. The smell of pumpkin spice conjures up feelings and images of cooler days and cozy night by the fireplace, snuggled in a warm blanket.

Bringing a touch of the Fall season indoors is easy peasy…just keep it simple.

fullsizeoutput_ab36I enjoy a neutral palette in the home essentials but love adding that pop of colors with accessories.

fullsizeoutput_ab38I don’t plan to buy any faux pumpkins this season, I have a nice supply that I have collected over the years. I am much more of a minimalist these days and would rather buy real pumpkins to use as decor than faux and have to store them.

When real pumpkins start to appear in the supermarket I am sure to pick up several, but for now..fresh flowers will do the trick.

  1. I too have started to bring out the fall decor. I go very minimalist during the summer for easy cleaning so I can focus on the gardens. Now is the time to start making the house more cosy and bring on the orange. I even have 2 large pictures I switch out for the fall season. Hurray for the cooler temperatures! Soon the fall rains will come and I will not have to be constantly watering.

    1. What a great idea on changing out pictures! I love it! Hooray for rain and morning dew! I’ve been watering as well, I actually enjoy it – in the evening being outside 🙂

  2. Perfect Denise! A little goes a long way – especially when it’s as pretty as yours! 💗 Thanks for the great tips, and you’ve piqued my interest with your upcoming posts! I’ll be back! 🙂

  3. I like the idea of velvet pumpkins! But no I have not started to decorate for fall yet, as I don’t want summer to end. Maybe the end of the month. We are still having nice weather, so other than earlier evenings and a bit of cool breeze it still feels like summer on the sunny days.
