It might not officially be Fall until Wednesday the 22nd (mid November for San Diego), but Fall has arrived in my home and I’m not one bit mad about it! I love adding a few Fall touches to my kitchen every September. Fall decor is so just warm and inviting isn’t it!? I always keep it simple in this space because (like in most homes) our kitchen gets trashed and then cleaned multiple times a day and too much decor combined with every day family clutter is just.. too much! But it doesn’t take a lot to welcome this beloved season. I started by adding some new inexpensive neutral rugs. I’m always drawn to neutrals for Fall!
I love to add items with lots of texture to up the cozy factor and rattan is a favorite go-to of mine! I just set some of my often used kitchen items and a pretty candle on a rattan tray and my kitchen instantly felt warmer.
I was a little torn on what to put on the shelf over my cooktop this year (I added garland and pumpkins last year!) and ended up just adding a simple wheat wreath over my mirror with my beloved candle holders on each side. Mini white pumpkins had to make an appearance too of course. It’s just not Fall in my kitchen without them. :)
Adding vintage (or vintage looking) art to a more modern space has been trending for a while now. Something about that mix of old with new is so fun isn’t it? I’ve wanted to add some art to my kitchen for a while but just couldn’t find anything that really spoke to me until I came across this rooftop painting at a boutique in my hometown last time we were visiting. It was love at first sight because the rooftops reminded me so much of a favorite trip Kenny and I took years ago to Italy. Also… GREEN! So many shades of my favorite color. I knew we were meant to be together the second I saw it. :) I don’t have a link for this exact canvas but I linked a few fun similar looking options. Flea markets, antique stores and etsy are fun places to find art like this too! You really don’t have to spend a lot.
This is a picture from my kitchen decor last year.. sharing it because I didn’t get a pic snapped of this whole window and I kept it close to the same! Favorite faux olive branches in a crock next to candles on the left and then pampas grass in a vase on the right. The pampas grass I used last year was real.
This year I used faux pampas grass and I LOVE it! Unlike the pampas grass I shared in my last post this grass doesn’t shed one bit! It’s so realistic looking and I love how tall it is (easy to bend the branches to adjust the height for your vase!). The color is so beautiful too.. instant Fall!
I’m still playing around with my cabinet shelves but love my long metal tray below it. One of my favorite accessories for holiday decorating! Right now I just placed a pretty vase (works great with my green painting!) and a wooden tray on it. I might add some Fall flowers to the vase at some point.
My white terracotta jars are back in stock! They are perfect to hold faux eucalyptus branches (or any branches/flowers really!). I picked up this wood serving tray at the Nordstrom sale and couldn’t love it more. It’s hard to tell in this pic but it’s huge! Fun for a little Fall moment on my island. :)
My fun fall dish towels are from Anthro a few years back.. they always have so many cute options! I’ll link a few favorites out new this year at the bottom of this post with sources!
I brought out a favorite cook book on a gold stand in my kitchen. Platters & Boards is actually more of a “how to style your food and make it look pretty” vs. how to cook it.. totally why it’s a favorite at my house. Ha.
Then I added some faux pomegranate branches to my other white terracotta jar. A few velvet pumpkins never hurt anyone either. :)
Simple Fall kitchen decor! I’ll take it. :)
