Softer Fall Decor

Softer Fall Decor

Typically I enjoy the pops of orange and red in fall decor, but this year I was definitely feeling a different vibe... I wanted something softer.

I'd say very different from last year! πŸ˜‚

You can always swing by last year's post, Falling In Love With Fall, you'll see lots of bright orange!

I feel like I'm going through a change of style... Well, it's been a slow process but I definitely have noticed it... Softer colors are catching my eye lately. I still love bold colors, but the softer ones are more soothing and comfy to me right now. 

I did keep a bit of orange...

I just LOVE those 'gather' blocks that I made last year! On the other side of them it says joyful for Christmas. 😍😍😍   I have a tutorial you can check out if you want... DIY 'Gather' Letter Blocks.

I don't know what it is, but this fall has me wanting more white and soft blues and greens. So, I said what the heck, let's get out the paint! And so I started painting pumpkins... and painting and painting... I painted almost all of them. All but maybe 2 or 3. 😊

I am sooo happy I did. Hubby put up with my painting mess for weeks at the dining table. He's so great about that! He just let's me do my thing. Love that guy!!

Just keeping the dining table super simple. 😊

Lovin' the shutters hubs and I made a couple of years ago. They work perfect to contain table decor.

I love the combination of the wood and white colors

I also just didn't feel like changing the entire "look" of the house for the season. My motto lately has been 'less is more' and I definitely want less STUFF! So, I weeded out some things I don't really care for anymore. I just wanted to keep it simple, easy, less cluttered.

So what do you think? Do you like the lighter softer style of fall?

Hmmm... I wonder what's going to happen at Christmas time. I mentioned to hubby about only putting up one Christmas tree and he really didn't care for that idea.  He wants both of them up... I said, "As long as you help!" πŸ‘

Here the the links to some of the decor we made.
