This time of year adding a touch of Thanksgiving color to your home's decor is as simple as well,....pumpkin pie.
Just steal a cue from mother nature and blend fall's rich textures and subtle hues with your everyday style.
For my phase three home, I look for hints of the season that are interesting, super easy and add that toasty warm fall-ish November feel as the air gets chilly ( or in our case here in Chicago this year, more like, as the air gets down right freezing!)
Got a minute? Here's a super quick way to add a splash of color to your front door.
For a Thanksgiving-ready entrance that's sure to welcome your guests in style, over-stuff a hanging basket with a bundle of Bittersweet--available at most local markets this time of year--and finish off with a wired-bow in an autumn palette (above).
This weathered flat-sided basket's an old favorite estate sale treasure that finds its way to my front door each fall. But most major craft stores have similar containers that can work just as well. And the best spot for wired ribbon at the lowest prices? Costco. Their everyday and seasonal ribbon selection and prices are hard to beat!
Indoors I like to add simple, classic accents like this magnolia wreath I purchased years ago from Home Depot (above). Look for them in grocery stores, home store holiday displays and specialty stores such as West Elm and Williams-Sonoma. Add a shimmery, metallic ribbon and they're just the thing to highlight french doors or mirrors.
For quick hit of fall interest, I swap out my warm-weather shell centerpiece for a grouping of gorgeous dark green acorn squash (above). Simple, and let's face it.... way too pretty to eat!
And to add warmth to an open area, this feathered wreath (above), found in most garden centers and craft stores, adds a sophisticated touch of seasonal pop to any wall or mantle.
Hope these simple, fall additions work as well in your home as they do in mine--and keep things bright and cheery throughout the Thanksgiving holiday.
