Fall Decorating Ideas for your Transitional home

Fall Decorating Ideas for your Transitional home

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!

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!


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!

I have been asked by several friends and followers to give ideas on how to style a nightstand or end table, so I figured it was best to explain it here by giving some examples on how to do this. Usually, styling a certain space can be overwhelming for some and more than often, that space still needs something to feel complete. If this is your case, then continue reading because I am about to tell you the key elements I use and go by, when styling my nightstands or end tables. Follow these simple steps and you will be on your way to have a magazine worthy end table.

My Bedroom nightstand.

1. Table Lamps or Wall Sconces

Lamps are one of the must items when decorating. Because they come in a variety of sizes, shapes and styles, they elevate the look of just about any space. Bringing light to your spaces is an incredible and super easy way to dress up your spaces. If the size of your table permits get a lamp tall enough to add volume to your space. I recommend a minimum of 24”. 

I have added some of my favorite lamps that will make a statement on your nightstand. Don’t be afraid in selecting something that catches your eye. This is probably the easiest way to add volume and character to your space.

2. Books or Decorative Boxes

You don’t have to be a bookworm to have a good selection of old books collecting dust at home. If this is the case, then I encourage you to make the best use out of them. Try to use the books with hardcovers vs the one with soft cover as the thickness of the hardcover adds elegance and depth to it.

For a Vintage look, you may remove the hard cover and try to give it a distress look. To top it off, you can tie brown twine thread with a little bow and a little accent leaf. If doing this is too harsh and you rather not alter the integrity of your books, you can simply turn the books so the spine of the book is facing the wall and once stacked, the whole look is more cohesive and looks nice to the eye.

Old Books that were distressed. I tied twine and added a leaf of Natural dried Eucalyptus.

If you are not so much into the DIY thing, then I am suggesting some books and boxes that I know will work just as fine. See them here below.

If you want a more clean look, i would paint over the hard covers with some old white paint or acrylic. You might need a couple of coats to achieve the desired look.

You can even use fun gift wraps or fabric and wrap the books with it to achieve the look you are looking for. You can be as creative as you want!.

But if you want a very Modern and glam look and you are willing to invest in some nice home styling books, then you can add some interior designing edition books that will upscale the look of your table. I have listed some of my all time favorite.

3. Accent Pieces

Greenery and Flowers. There is just something about it that adds life to any space!. When looking to add warmth, a nice vase with artificial or natural flowers will be the perfect addition to your table. I opt for the vases with big natural looking roses as it gives a romantic vibe to the room. 

Accessories. There are tons of options when it comes to this and they are all often inexpensive. Depending on the mood you want to go for, pick items that will complement your look. Good items are small clocks, accent pieces, wood frames with messages, candle jars etc.

Mirror or Artwork as a background. If you have the ability to add a mirror I would 100% go for it. I have windows and curtains, right on the back of my nightstands but the look of adding a nice accent mirror to yours, might be just what you need. To add character to your room and bring it upscale, a nice rectangular mirror would be the perfect match. Don’t be afraid to make it BOLD.

And you are set! I am almost certain that if you follow these steps you will be successful at styling just about any table at home!. Don’t forget to follow me on my social media channels so I can serve of inspiration with my home projects and styling tips.
