I really enjoy dressing a home for a season as well as the holidays. It comes natural to me to do I guess because I was raised seeing my parents decorate the house, plus all the floor changes I did for visuals working in retail. Changing the colors really changes the mood. Sometimes it can be done through paint. Sometimes the change can be made with textiles (for example inside with pillows and window panels). Fall can be tricky: September is Fall, but then there is Halloween in October, and then Thanksgiving, it's still Fall. Although I do enjoy decorating for seasons, I also like to allow each holiday its moment to breathe (lol - unlike in retail establishments that already have Christmas set LONG before Halloween). And living in a rental house, it's even more important to make it a home with some holiday or seasonal decor...
Since I do like to decorate for both Halloween and Fall, I don't get too gory on my Halloween decor. This year, I did more mixing for a creepy fall look, but I can easily remove the Halloween details afterwards, to keep it pure Fall for Thanksgiving. Outside is more Fall - I'll just remove the "Turn Back" signs and crows after Halloween. And I have a pumpkin for Jeff to crave for a Jack-O-Lantern.
Love the simple black metal lanterns I got from HomeGoods (back in FL). I removed the glass, making it easier to fill with plants or details in my outdoor decorating. The cork covered cylinder is also from HomeGoods - For Fall, I used it inside the stoop lanterns en lieu of a candle...
The inside entry was tricky to do - since I don't have a buffet or table to create a holiday vignette. I carried the colors from outside into the entry, but mixed in more of my skulls from Halloween into the decor. After Halloween, the skulls will be removed, and replaced with photographs I shot a few years back on a trip we made to Georgia in the Fall. I'll share pics of the inside entry shortly so stay tuned!
