Tips and Tricks to transition from Summer to Fall

Just so you know my home isn’t completely ready for Fall just yet. However, it has been rather cool around here lately so I am excited to share three simple and easy things I do around our home to gradually usher Fall in with some style!


One of my favorite decor items is pillows! You can always switch out your pillows for a quick and simple new look.  I chose to add this beautiful dark navy blue pillow with a white pumpkin on it. (the only pumpkin currently out) Instant fall! I also love to add velvet pillows and sweater pillows because they add immediate warmth. Great textures equal easy transitions to the next season.This pumpkin pillow is a great way to easily decorate for Fall.


I’m sure most of you do this but when the weather starts cooling down and I am ready to transition to Fall decor, throws and blankets are one of the first things I grab! You can never have enough. Am I right? In the Fall I love the large knit throws like the white one seen below that my friend Karen made me. I love the warmth and the coziness they add to any area.Summer to fall decor in the family room.

A beautiful basket and warm Fall colors mixed with blue are one way to usher fall decor in.


The third thing I always do when I begin moving and transitioing my decor from Summer to Fall is to look at what accessories I have that can be switched out. I took flowers out of my large glass vase and added fall colored poms, switched out the art above both dressers, and even added wheat, wreaths, baskets and signs. Each of these small touches were easy and quick and added that natural element that works perfectly for Fall. The best part was that I was able to shop my own home and spend no money!

We are working on easy ways to transition our decor from summer to fall.

Wheat is always a good Fall decoration.

An easy way to transition your summer decor to fall is to change up wreaths.

  1. Beautiful touches of Fall. I love that pretty mirror and what a gorgeous reflection.

  2. Sunflowers, pumpkins, wheat, it looks like you are all ready to welcome fall to your house! I think those are the perfect elements for transitioning from summer to the fall season!

  3. Kelly, Your home looks so cozy styled for fall! I have a similar vintage shutter in my living room, but I hung it over a door as a plate rack. 🙂 Love how you used yours! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  4. Kelly,
    A woman after my own heart… blue with white! AND, French style chairs. The chippy blue shutter could live in my house… just send me an email if you ever want to update your living area and replace the shutter with something else fabulous. 🙂 I saw a beautiful quilted throw today while out shopping in nearby Granbury, TX. The throw was varying shades of faded blue and white SUNFLOWERS. I came very close to buying it, but the price held me back. Now, I am thinking I should create some kind of blue and white sunflower print to make a throw pillow for fall. And, your navy pillow with the white pumpkin would be a perfect companion pillow. Where did you find that pillow?

    I am also enjoying your Instagram feed. Hope you have a great school year!

    Happy Fall,


    1. Judith I am so glad we have connected! I’m definitely a blue and white girl and feel like my style is leaning more towards European Country lately! That blue and white sunflower throw sounds dreamy… I can’t believe you passed it up!My blue pillow is from Luch at Ms. Craftberry Bush and her Society6 page! I got it last year and just adore it!Thank you for the well wishes and for stopping by!Blessing on your week!

  6. The three easy ways to transition your decor are such wonderful ideas AND they are easy! I love your touches for Fall. I also adore that basket you have on the cabinet! Sorry I’m late to hopping on the tour, time got away from me.

  7. Kelly, I love all your fresh almost-fall touches! I love how your vignettes are summery (is that a real word?) with just a touch of something to hint at the coming fall. And that wreath is amazing! So happy to be on the home tours with you!

  8. Kelly, I couldn’t agree with more on how to transition from summer to fall. That photo of the green chest styled and reflected in the floor mirror with wreath hanging on it….perfection!! Cheers to a great new school year and season!

  9. Kelly is is simple early fall perfection! Just enough to hint of all the fall fun and beauty to come. Everything is so gorgeous. I agree about the throws and pillows…instant fall! I love the wheat in the rusty bucket and your trio of books in rustic fall colors. Of course I am always in crushing on your green dresser every time I see it in any season! I love that shot of the mirror with the dresser in the reflection, magazine worthy! I have also been realizing that blue is still perfect for fall. What is more gorgeous than a forest of fall color blazing against a bright blue sky? I love the touches of blue in your home and how you can still make everything look fallish. I am looking forward to all your fall posts!
