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!
When we were house hunting, nothing was “move in ready”. Meaning nothing was up to my taste, or just really needed a lot of work. If you are like me or many other home buyers in today’s market, you want something that is READY! Ready for you to add your special touch and live happily ever after. No need to panic!. Any house could have a lot of potential but you might not be able to see it. Let me walk you through our experience so you can have some insight when house hunting.
YOU want move in Ready? Reality is, that comes with a very high price tag. But what is really “Move in Ready”? It depends on the person’s perspective. Technically speaking, it refers to a house or property that is ready for immediate occupancy, which usually includes operable plumbing, electricity, locking doors and windows, and passing certain required pest inspections; the basic stuff. Now, for US trying to buy our forever home, we want the right floors, the right paint colors, the perfect kitchen, updated bathrooms, you name it- WE WANT IT!. I am here to tell you that as long as that home is on the perfect location, has good bones and of course, good price tag, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
My #1 advise when house hunting, is overlook. You can still find a good property that works for you, keeping in mind that cosmetic details can be tackle down the road, just make sure your house has good bones and is technically move in ready. In this particular room space we removed popcorn ceiling, added new floors, new crown molding, removed outdated light fixtures, painted the walls and added recessed lighting. As you can see, it looks like a total different space and these changes were accounted for when we made our offer.
Everything else, is just decor and style and time for you to have fun!. Think about your color palette and do not deviate too much from it so your space looks cohesive and balanced. Find below my 5 top tips to style your space.
1. Pick your style and stick with it. Do you like Rustic, Modern or Transitional?. A little bit of everything? Find your style, what defines you, find your inspiration and start creating. Create your own inspiration board and start adding things you might like so later on you can redefine what must stay and what has to go.
2. Pick your color palette for your main big items. This is a tough one for me or at least it used to be. I realized that dark colors mess with my mood. I had this stage when I wanted a lot of things in dark navy blue but came to realize light colors bring me the peace and tranquility I am looking for in my home. So make sure the colors you pick talk to you and represent your vision. Stick to 2-3 and work around those. Neutral colors are the best since you can mix and match with anything.
3. Assess your area and figure out your must items. For instance, big couch, coffee table, area rug and entry way table. Sometimes less is more and your space will look clean and less cluttered. Also, it makes it easier when you want to re decor your space without breaking the bank.
4. Home decor items. This is where you can have all the fun. These often times are inexpensive, can be repurposed for other areas of your home, and can be rearranged to suit your decorating mood. Go for statement pieces in different sizes. Books, candles, flowers and vases are some of the items that have ton of usage in all decorating styles. I find myself changing things around the house almost every day so it looks like new, as if I had just bought new decor. HA! Got ya!.
5. Last but not least, have fun!. This is your space and it represents who you are. Remember our home is our fort and when we get to it, we want to feel at ease.
