This Autumn, we decorate the Transitional way
Fall is almost here and the fall decorating ideas for our Transitional home are pouring in! So, I wanted to show you how we do Fall at MYWELLIHOUSE! I already started looking for fall inspired ideas because I’ve been feeling a little festive lately. So, sit tight and relax because I am about to give you my favorite and easiest fall decorating ideas for your Transitional home. Now, let’s get inspired!
I love using neutrals and pops of color because they work like a blank canvas. This is why I’ve chosen to go with pops of burgundy, gold, black and brown. Most of this color palette I already use in my home all year round and the rest are my designated colors for the holiday. This way I can easily transition into every season without breaking the bank. Now let’s start with the basics!
They are a staple icon for Fall, and we all know that! When we think about Fall, we think about pumpkins and Halloween. But this doesn’t mean you have to style your home with orange and skeletons for it to look like Fall. You can still have fun by using colors that compliment your style and personality.
Luckily, decorative Pumpkins come in a variety of styles and materials. This is why Pumpkins are one of my favorite and easiest ways to give that Fall vibe to my transitional home. So, don’t be afraid to play around with some colors, textures and sizes. For example, right now, the velvety pumpkins are really trending and look super stylish. Also, a lot of handmade fabric covered pumpkins are IN and everyone is loving them. This is definitely a good way to incorporate a Fall staple, that looks original yet stylish.
Fall Inspired Wreaths
What is the first thing you see before coming in your home? Your front door! Your main entrance sets the mood for your home and this is why I believe is so important to make your entrance welcoming. Now don’t panic! a little goes a long way so you don’t have to go above and beyond to make an impact. This is why wreaths are the perfect addition to your doors. They come in different sizes and textures and more than often can easily transition into the seasons! I found a lot of pretty ones that will make any door or window look super pretty. However, if you want to upscale the look of your front door, just add a few floor lanterns, an outdoor bench and a nice rug and your look is complete.
Candles and Candlesticks
Candleholders, Candlesticks and Candles are my go-to, because they give my Transitional home a romantic vibe. They are versatile and can add an elegant and sweet touch to any space. When it comes to candlesticks, anything with a vintage look wins my heart. On the other hand, Candle jars are also a great way to add visual elegance to your spaces. My favorite scent is Anthropologie’s Volcano Capri blue; they come in beautiful and colorful glass jars!

WICKER AND SEAGRASS BASKETS
How to use baskets this fall
Second to anything-pumpkin, a good seagrass or wicker basket screams Fall decorating and Throw Blankets, more than anything. In other words, these baskets are the perfect addition to any style during this season. You can hide toys, books, shoes, blankets, pillows and really, just about anything. And because they can even style a bench very nicely when placed underneath it, Baskets are definitely a must have item. No wonder why I consider them one of my staple elements when decorating my Transitional home. See my favorite baskets right here!
HOME ACCENTS DECOR
Ok, so we have covered and talked about the fall items that will make the most impact. However, if you feel like you still have some empty spaces you can opt for using little accent pieces. These are often inexpensive and can be used all year round. I always implement modern accents in my decor along with organic elements to achieve that perfect transitional look.
And that’s a wrap! I hope you love all of my decorating ideas for this fall and had as much fun as I did! Remember, first pick your colors out to make sure they all go well together. Then pick your must have items for your space. And last but not least, fill out empty spaces with inexpensive fall inspired accents. And because you have made it this far, here is a little sneak peek of my Fall Tablescape with a very Transitional flare. Thanks for reading!
