In the last few years transitional decorating from one season to the next, has become a popular concept and works exceptionally well for people like me. I live in Texas and as much as I love pumpkin spice everything and plaid flannel shirts, our summers seem to be never-ending. We can only dream of cozy fires and hot chocolate with marshmallows while wearing shorts into October.

As I transition from summer to fall, I start swapping out accessories and adding as many warm wood tones as I can pull together.

The coffee table is the largest surface in the family room to decorate and my favorite spot to add items such as a wooden shoe mold, an antique tea box and a wooden tray. I think of it as setting the stage, and these accessories will be the backdrop for what is yet to come.

You can bet that as soon as I see pumpkins at the market, I’ll be loading up and nestling pumpkins of all sizes into little vignettes. Are you the traditional orange pumpkin lover or do you go for the white and gray pumpkins? I love them all and hope to find a few green pumpkins too.

As we are still enjoying the last of summer with morning walks and evening swims, I’m continuing my tradition of bring the outdoors in with tree trimmings or flowers whenever I can. My home just doesn’t feel right without those little pops of green.

Hanging from the mantel is a leaf garland I picked up last year. I like how it blends in with the white mantel. Since we haven’t gone full pumpkin mode yet, it’s a subtle hint of what’s to come.

Sometimes I forget to take pictures of our sweet girl. Sandy our wheaten terrier is thoroughly enjoying the last lazy days of summer doing what she does best.

    Hi Michelle, I love all your uses of texture to usher in the Fall Season. The glass hurricane vessel filled with natural elements is wonderful. I’m a lover of all colors of pumpkins. Everyone needs at least one that is orange!
