Happy weekend everyone! My home is officially ready to welcome Fall and it feels so cozy! I’m sad that September is already coming to an end. The early Fall and holiday months are my favorite and they always go by way too quickly!

I had so much fun adding some touches of gold to my home this year! I’m a long time lover of all things silver (always will be) but I’m really liking the look of mixed metals lately and gold feels so cozy for Fall doesn’t it!? And candles! I love having candles around my home this time of year when it starts getting dark earlier. These flameless wax candles have a timer so it’s nice to have added light in the kitchen with no effort!
Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice. One of my favorite Fall finds! These dishtowels have a little sparkle to them and are way too cute for drying dishes. Which is why I picked up two for me and extras for friends. :)
I love them almost as much as my gold thankful trivet. This I actually have been using in the kitchen! It’s so beautiful as decor and then perfect to lay flat for hot pans/plates. You know.. for my super complicated Fall meals. Like Ramen Noodles and Taco Soup. (I’d add a wink emoji but that implies that I’m joking and.. I’m not.) Ha.
Every year I think I’ll find a new sign or something else to put over my stove for Fall, but I just can’t quit my Enjoy the Little Things sign. It always feels especially appropriate this time of year. Plus it just goes great with pumpkins. :) The orange pumpkins are from this long time favorite set and the small white pumpkins are real. I shared this fun Eucalyptus garland and wreath earlier (found the matching set at two different stores!) and I love the cozy vibe the greenery brought into the room.
A couple of real pumpkins in the fruit basket! This basket it larger than it looks and so are these pumpkins! I added the eucalyptus swag to cozy up the counter too.
Did you notice the new addition to my kitchen!? I fell so hard for these Hicks Pendants I put in my upstairs hallway that I decided to bring one into the kitchen too! Ahhh! So excited about it. I’m LOVING the navy with my kitchen rugs. It’s sitting a little low and I was going to move it up, but it has to be moved up two links and I feel like that’s too short! So still debating placement, but I’m so in love with this light. Of course now I want to switch out my 4 island pendants to something gold to match better! (I love silver hardware with gold pendants.) And if I switch out all of my pendants.. of course I’m going to need some barstools with a little gold to match them better..
I’m thinking of writing a sequel to the book “If you Give a Mouse a Cookie” titled “If you Give Erin a new Kitchen Pendant.” Ha. ;)
For now.. I’m just enjoying a fun new touch of gold and navy. :)
My glass cabinets got a fun update for Fall too! I decided to keep things really simple with our every day Cambria dishes and then I just bought a set of these cute pumpkin salad plates to display. I love the pumpkin plates so much that I’m thinking of picking up 4 more so I can use them in the dining room to entertain too. And how happy is this stack of 3 pumpkins? It’s pretty hard to not have a good day when pumpkins greet you at your kitchen window. :)
I kept our nook table centerpiece really simple because we’re constantly moving it to eat! Just some faux apple branches in a vase sitting on a cutting board. I shopped my house for this one.
My butler pantry shelves were so fun to style this year too. I just used warm woods and whites and golds. Plus another Eucalyptus swag because.. why not? :) I had these shelf lights on the evening right after I finished decorating and Ellie walked into the kitchen and saw it and said “Mom! I LOVE this shelf! Please don’t get tired of it and change it in two days!” Ha! She knows me well. She’s so busy with school and friends and dance that she usually doesn’t comment much about anything else. I was thrilled she noticed and liked the shelf so much.
So just for her I’m going to leave it up for two weeks instead of one. ;)
Some of these items are sold out, but I’ll link everything I can at the bottom of my post! This gold linen pumpkin is beautiful lit up at night with a candle in it! I use one of my timer candles for it.
I really need to take some pictures of the kitchen at night. It’s so beautiful and cozy when the candles are lit and it smells heavenly!
Bring on the cooler temps! We are so ready for cozy evenings at home. :)
