Hello! Jaclyn here of The Coveted Home & we are talking home decor transition today. Truthfully, I’m not in the habit of “decorating for the seasons”, I’m actually quite the minimalist when it comes to seasonal decorating. A few adjustments to my decor is all I need to transition from spring & summer into fall & winter. A few weeks ago I started planning to make one of those seasonal changes to my living room– to welcome in fall with its darker days and colder temps.
I love me some hi/low, so a mix of items from my shop, Coveted Home, along with a few pieces from Target did the trick for an easy seasonal update.
I kept it simple by switching out my summer pillows, which were more colorful and bright, for some more neutral colors and opted to keep the color palate on the sofa just black, white and blue. The new pillows I introduced can be found here and here.
I found the black matte candelabra at Target and immediately snatched it up. I love the drama it adds to my coffee table while keeping the palate neutral.
Every few months I change things up on my bookshelf to keep it fresh. By simply rearranging a few of the shelves I was able to add just two new accessories which gave it a completely different look, easy peasy! You can find my newest additions here and here.
I love picking out flowers to match the new scene. Here I added some seasonal flowers with fall colors and little baby pumpkins that instantly amped up the fall vibe!
Once I made all these updates and my house was clean (for a change) I thought “what better way to celebrate the beginning of fall than to host a little ‘end of summer’ gathering?!”
I love to host potluck style dinners. Fortunately I have a nice back yard, so this usually entails grilling, and yard games are a must. I’m a low-key kind of entertainer — cooking for large groups of people stresses me out so I usually ask my guests to bring items for the grill or side dishes. I normally take care of the apps and always set out a few unique pieces of cheese for people to nibble on as well as hummus, olives and maybe some veggies or chips. This time I grilled some jalapeños stuffed with a mixture of blueberry compote and cream cheese–so yummy!
Easy seasonal updates, easy entertaining. With my busy life, that’s just how I roll! Thank you for letting me share it with you!
