Happy Tuesday everyone! Sorry for the delay in posting. I seem to have a lot of beautiful distractions in my life lately. They are the very best kind of distractions, but distractions none the less. :)
I’ve added some touches of Fall to the kitchen!
Simple groupings that are making things feel cozy. That’s the word that pops in my head when I think of Fall. Cozy.
I picked up a few plants and so far they are still alive! Going on two weeks so this is a new record for me. Feeling good about that! I put the larger plant in a wooden crate.
And then placed a mini white pumpkin next to it in one of my bowls.
You can’t tell in these pictures, but that bay window has such a beautiful view out to the backyard. It’s one of my favorite spots in the house and the view makes doing dishes not quite as painful. Nice to finally have some greenery on the inside as well!
I shopped around my house for a few things to place next to my new blue jars. Baby breath is so inexpensive and adding a bit of it here and there added some Fallness to the kitchen. Is Fallness a word? Is to me now. I’m adding it to my mental dictionary which is full of all sorts of “words” that my husband tells me aren’t really words at all.
Except he’s wrong. :)
I replaced my summer lemons with mini white pumpkins (told you I can’t get enough of them!).
Then added a couple more white pitchers in a tray on the counter.
My display cupboard?
You guessed it.
Added a few white pumpkins there too.
Because why not?
Easy way to Fallify the cupboard. Is Fallify a word? It is now. :)
Do you love how I photo bombed my own picture (far right)?
Here is a picture without the glass so you can see what’s on display without me looming in the shadows. Things are spread out a bit to accommodate for the cupboard doors.
I added a couple of pumpkins to some old candlesticks and a pitcher full of flowers for a centerpiece on my table.. but I didn’t love it.
I’ve already changed it around. And most likely will five more times before I find time to post about it again. That’s my decorating ADD coming out to play. Did you know that you can have OCD and ADD at the same time?
I’m living proof. :)
Added some baby breath to the butler’s pantry too.
And switched my summer snack station to AUTUMN.
Fallifying the kitchen!
One white mini pumpkin and made up word at a time.

I love you and I love our ‘fall’ morning walks.
Right back at ya Shari! Best therapy ever. :) xo
I love the different blues and whites you use in your kitchen! My kitchen is currently an unattractive green… can’t wait to remodel then add in some blue touches!! Thanks for the inspiration :)
Thanks Jo! It’s a fun color for sure.
It looks so pretty. I think the plants really look great. I think every room needs a plant in It What is the name of the one in the wooden box? I love it. isn’t fall without white pumpkins!!
Did you buy the Fiddle Leaf tree?
Hopefully we will start to enjoy some fall weather. The temps are going up one more time. then it will be boot weather. Gotta love Cali!!
Looks beautiful Erin as. Your a very clever lady.x
All the greener and natural elements really makes the space so inviting and lived-in looking (if that is a phrase?) I wish I could find some small white pumpkins like those!
Wow — so pretty! You do have a talent for decorating and word-smithing (is that a word?) :)
I LOVE it!!! You did a great job “fallifying!” I love using little white pumpkins-I need to go get a whole bunch now! It cooled down a bit for just a few days to feel like fall. And it’s back to warm, warm days. Nothing says fall like a few 100+ degree days in October! ~gina
Gorgeous! We decorate with lots of aqua, too…I love seeing it with pops of orange during the fall. Can you share where you found the tiered stand?
Thanks Cathy! My plants are all ferns from Home Depot. So inexpensive! I agree – plants make such a difference. I bought the fiddle leaf fig and it didn’t look good. :( Took it back. I’ll blog about it at some point. I was bummed! Counting down to boot time!
Thank you Fiona!
April – thank you! I keep getting the white pumpkins at my grocery store! So easy to pick up. That’s why I keep getting more of them! :)
Thanks Jboo! Totally a word! ;)
Thanks Gina! I know! I was LOVING it for those two days! Back to summer clothes. :( Hopefully it’s coming soon!
Thank you Jac! That stand is from Pottery Barn but I’ve had it for years. They might still make it??
My mother told me that when she took a linguistics class in college, the professor told them that any ‘word’ which adequately conveys meaning is, indeed, a real word. So there is that…
Awesome. Thank you Donna! Sending your comment to my husband! :)
oh gosh Erin what have you done to your kitchen? so pretty and cozy! I have those blue mason jars too. Got them from target and I just love them. Love all the fall touches. so inspiring! :)
Erin, it’s gorgeous! I love it :)
Thank you so much! Thrilled you like it! :)
I’m so proud of you with the plants!! I’ve bought that type of fern and I cannot keep it alive! I have a dozen other plants in my house that I’ve kept alive for years, but that particular type I end up killing every time! Total bummer, it’s such a pretty plant
Yea! Thanks Meg! I knew you’d be proud of me. :) That fern is tricky for sure – I’ve had to watch it so close. Some of the leaves have turned dry and crispy so I’ve been watering it a lot. We’ll see how long it lasts!
Fallness and fallify! Great words! I’ll be using them.
I think you have the most beautiful kitchen (entire house, actually), and adore how you have “Fallified” the room — that is absolutely a word!
Yea! Thanks Heather! :)
Carol – you are so sweet to say that! Thank you! Made my day. :)
Erin I totally want you to adopt me so I can live in your amazing house :)
Sure, I live in Australia and I’m a grown woman with a family of my own but that’s ok, right? haha!
Ha! Shayne you are welcome anytime! You made me smile. :) Thank you!
It’s GORGEOUS! Where did you get the mason jar utensil holder and canister from? LOVE them!
disregard my comment. i continued reading your blog and saw that you got them at world market. :)
I just love how you decorate! You always seem to know just how much to add so things look balanced and completed instead of junky. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L
Thank you Erin! Glad you found what you were looking for. :)
What a sweet thing to say Heather! Wow. I’m flattered. So incredibly kind of you. Thank you! So happy you like it. xo
Just found your blog – your kitchen is gorgeous!
Hi Erin! Your home looks gorgeous!! I am laughing hysterically about you saying you have ADD and OCD at the same time! I JUST told a friend today that I have both ADD and OCD too!!
I absolutely love your kitchen❤️ was curious about your backsplash- where did you find it? It is gorgeous!!!!!
So sweet of you Brooke! Thank you! It’s Cararra marble and we bought it from a store in southern Utah. You can find Cararra marble subway tile about anywhere though! xo
I love your blogs
Thank you! xo
