If you are like me and slowly easing into fall, but not quite ready for full-blown pumpkin spice, then today’s post is for you! I’m sharing some minimal and simple fall kitchen decor that can be easily added and help you transition to the next season.
Even though fall isn’t officially here, every year, in the Seasons of Home Tour, myself and a group of bloggers share our homes decorated for fall, 1 room per week, to serve as early inspiration so you can have some fun ideas in mind before you decorate your home.
This year I approached my “fall decorating” differently. I decided I wanted to clean and organize first! I tackled the inside of my pantry, fridge, and cabinets (if you follow me on Instagram, you saw this in my stories). Then I finally tackled re-painting my cabinets, which has been on my to-do list for awhile. Because I spent every day of this past Labor Day weekend painting, AND because it is still mid-90s temps, I chose to add minimal fall decor and let the freshly painted clean kitchen shine.
I also used mostly what I had, with this woven-basket-wrapped jar and some faux fall branches I got last year from Pottery Barn. Similar branches found here. Because the scale of this one is larger, I let it be the focal point.
Something else I love to have on hand in the fall is baked goods. This pumpkin spice cake is one I bought at my local grocery store, since who has time for baking after painting all weekend? 😉 I think pumpkin cakes taste delicious when chilled (especially when it’s hot out), so we kept this in the fridge until we were ready to eat it.
Another thing I love about the fall season is the all the fruits that come into season. California figs are available at Trader Joe’s, plums are large and juicy, as well as so many other fruits like pears, and apples.
There is something about a clean kitchen (inside and out) that really makes me ready for the next season.
I restyled this little side shelves and I’m obsessed with how it turned out. I was tired of the mason jars I’ve had there for the past few years, and finally I decided to treat them like open kitchen shelves, but just use smaller objects.
I know faux plants aren’t ‘cool’ or ‘authentic’ but it’s what I have available and I love that I don’t have to worry about leaves actually falling and making a mess and I can leave them up for weeks!
So there is my cute kitchen, with minimal fall decor, ready for the next season! I’ll be back on Friday sharing about how I gave the kitchen an affordable update with the gorgeous HanStone Quartz counter on the island, and painted the cabinets! I’ll share details of the paint and the quartz, so make sure to not miss it!
