Neutral Fall Decor + Our Home Update

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven

It's been a while since I published a home decor post. It's not that I don't love home decor or decorating (in fact I LOVE it!), it's just that it hasn't been a top priority in our lives for the past few years. I kind of felt like our last house in Illinois wasn't permanent so I never felt like truly decorating or making it feel more like our home. Now that we've been 'settled' in our new home here in Ohio, I feel like we are just about ready to really start making it our own.

We have some construction work scheduled to be done in our main living area/great room that will hopefully be completed by the end of October at the latest. Then, we will finally be able to paint over the ugly mustard yellow paint color that is all over the main floor (sorry if mustard yellow walls is your jam... it's just not mine!). However, we were able to paint a handful of rooms in our house including the kitchen, master bedroom/bathroom, Camden's room and the boys' shared bathroom upstairs a month after we moved in. This past weekend we (ok, Bill) painted our front door black and we replaced the hardware which was brass to brushed nickel. It's so rewarding to see the outcome of such a small project! I am so excited to finish some other home projects on our to do list in the near future! 

Since I wasn't really motivated to decorate in our mustard yellow room, I decided to go all out in our dining room and front porch/door for fall. I went to At Home and Target for my decorations and found a lot of cute, neutral fall decor. It's not that I don't love all the warm tones of fall, it's just that I'm not a yellow/orange/brown type of person. Does that make sense? I've always gravitated towards neutral or cool tones when decorating, so fall decor has been a challenge in the past. But, I'm loving the neutral fall decor trend right now! I'm a sucker for a white pumpkin and when I saw little white ceramic pumpkins in the Target dollar spot, you know I bought every. single. one! Target is currently killing it with the neutral fall decor! I have this pillow and a set of these pillows on my wish list. 

I love the black, white/cream and grey hues with touches of gold mixed in for some warmth. If I had my way and an endless bank account, I'd be buying all of the above items in the collage. In fact, I think I need a set of buffalo check pillows for fall! I don't care if my walls are still yellow for another month! I'm hoping to share some glimpses of my fall decor on the blog and on instgram over the next few weeks, so stay tuned! 

Do you love the neutral fall decor look? Or do you stick with the traditional fall colors?

I also have the same pattern in a cream color. I bet you're so excited for your house work to be done, and YAY for a black front door!

  2. YES to all of the home decor! I love gold to warm up neutrals and the pumpkin is adorable! Can you leave it out year round (I totally want to!) Target has had a lot of great buffalo check pillows online!
