Transitioning From Summer to Fall Home Tour

Welcome to my transitioning from summer to fall home tour. Today I’m joining a fabulous group of bloggers all sharing their transitioning decorating ideas across the country. Whether I’m your first stop, or you’re joining me from Celebrate and Decorate on the blog tour, I’m thrilled to have you here.

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.

    Your home decor is an inspiration. i love the unexpected pops of color with your neutral decor. May I ask where you purchased the patterned chair with wood arms and the ottoman?

    First, your blog title and graphic are so pretty. While I was reading your post one day, I handed my computer to my sister so she could see how pretty it is. We both oohed and aahed over it together.

    The wooden shoe last is perfect for a transitional fall arrangement. Your home is so bright, airy, and welcoming with the perfect touches for an easy transition to fall.

    Happy Fall,


    P.S. Love getting to be on a blog tour with another Texas blogger…

      Thank you Judith! I think you’re the first to comment on my art work. I love working with watercolors and occasionally show pieces on my IG feed. This tour has been amazing and I’ve had so much fun with this group of lovely bloggers. Happy fall to you too!

    Michelle, Your whispers of fall are perfect. Love all the fresh, green touches in your home. My favorite pic was of your doggy, though. My goldendoodle is almost the same color and is usually sprawled on the floor or tucked in her chair all day when I’m sitting at my laptop; too funny! Fun hopping with you!

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      Thank you Lora, it wouldn’t be much of a home without our sweet girl and it sounds like you feel the same way about yours. Happy Fall!

    Very pretty! Your pooch is so darn cute. I love the subtle leaf garland hanging from the mantle. I love all pumpkins too. I have some orange ones and baby boos growing in the garden. Trying to hold off on picking them. 🙂 I’ll add unique to them as soon as they start showing up.
