Kiss the humidity goodbye and break out everything pumpkin spice-centered—Fall is coming y’all. While I’ll definitely be missing the warmer weather, I’m looking forward to getting back into the groove of school, the changing seasons and, of course, the changing decor. I always look forward to changing seasons as they allow for the perfect opportunity to try a new trend or update your look—especially in the home! I am already seeing some great autumn decor trends and tricks hitting the scene that will be the perfect finishing touches to your home to help you transition with the seasons. Here are a few of my favorite trends and some fantastic local resources:
Farmhouse Chic—It’s safe to say, Chip & Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper have brought the farmhouse out of the country and into each and every one of our homes. Fall is the perfect time to test out this trend and incorporate it into your home. Whether you love all things rustic or you have a more refined style, you can incorporate this is look into any type of decor. I adore these rustic lanterns from Vintage Now Modern located at 633 S. Main Street, as well as these items made from natural materials at The Rock House Antiques at 415 Mauldin Road in Greenville.
Wicker Baskets—With hectic households, you can never have enough storage. Functional can still be trendy and cute with these wicker baskets from Pottery Barn – visit locally at the Haywood Mall. Store everything from toys to blankets and everything in between. Varying sizes are great if you need to fill a large space or if you want to do a set. Fill a basket with pumpkins and gourds from The Fresh Market at 27 S. Pleasantburg Drive in Greenville to really set the mood for autumn.
Snuggle Up—One of my favorite parts of Fall is snuggling up on the couch with the family to enjoy a fire or a warm cup of coffee. With the colder weather coming in, the beginning of Fall is a good time to take inventory of your blankets and see which ones may need to be retired. A great Fall throw has texture while reflecting your personal style. Mast General Store, located at 111 N. Main Street in Greenville currently has some unique quilts in their Mercantile department, new wool plaid blankets by Woolrich®, as well as some South Carolina-themed blankets in orange and garnet – perfect for watching the Clemson Tigers and University of South Carolina Gamecocks play football!
We are so lucky to experience all seasons here in the Upstate and our homes are the perfect places to display a few nods to Fall. Whether it’s a few additions here and there or a total autumn makeover and takeover, refreshing your home décor this season will be a great way to usher in Fall.
