Fall kitchen decor
I finally got around to decorating the kitchen for fall. Actually, I should say I finally got the kitchen clean enough for 10 whole minutes to photograph the fall decor in it.
I typically like to display small groupings of similar objects above my cabinets. I find that allowing open space between these vignettes gives a more cohesive look than covering every square inch with individual items. In graphic design, they call this technique “giving the eye somewhere to rest” … or something along those lines.
This year I added some indoor/outdoor rugs I got on sale from Ballard Designs. They are still 15 percent off until Oct. 22, I believe.
I love indoor/outdoor rugs in the kitchen because I can use my Swiffer SweeperVac on top of them and it is also OK for them to get wet. One thing I will mention about these particular rugs … you’ll want to use double-sided carpet/rug tape under them because they will scoot around if you don’t. I get my rug tape from Walmart (in the painter’s and duct tape section).
Here’s another vignette I created on top of the counter.
And of course I updated my drink station with my fall favorites: caramel apple cider and café mocha.
I hung up my fall, one-hour napkin curtains.
Have you finished decorating your kitchen for fall? Does it ever stay clean enough for you to enjoy it? If so, what’s your secret? 😉
