Today is all about decorating our house for Fall and finding those amazing affordable deals at HomeGoods. I had no idea what style I wanted or what my plan was for each space so I just went shopping with an open mind and let the merchandise speak to me.

I tend to stop at HomeGoods once or twice a week, just to see what they have. As you know, when you see something you love,  you need to grab it or it will be gone the next time you shop.

I shared our family room makeover with all of you a couple weeks ago and many of you loved the iron mirror. I found this amazing lush wreath full of dried leaves and flowers that I tied to the mirror with a thin piece of wire. The cute squirrel from HomeGoods looked adorable on the mantel as well.

When I started shopping, I wasn’t really sure what color scheme I was planning to do in the living room but this pillow made the decision for me. A simple saying stitched in orange along with the orange edging on the pillow was the perfect color to set the stage.

I grabbed every neutral off white pumpkin I could find and mixed in faux greenery and dried grasses to create a rustic look. One thing I knew for sure was, I wanted the space to appear cozy, warm and inviting while keeping with the rustic modern feel of the space.

The wheel barrel is something I saw about a month ago while shopping in HomeGoods so I immediately grabbed it knowing it would be perfect for the holidays. Anytime you see a large piece like this, it could even be a basket, snag it as they are great for filling a fireplace with your favorite decorative items.

The two chairs from HomeGoods are a purchase I made earlier this year. When I was on my Fall decorating #gofinding trip a couple weeks ago, I found this beautiful geometric orange pillow that I knew would look great for Fall.

Our kitchen is fairly open to our living room and we are planning to swap out all the lighting in the next few months.  There isn’t anything wrong with the lighting, it’s just a bit too traditional for us and lends an Italian Old World look.

I found this beautiful gold striped candle holder and this round tray basket. I filled it with faux berries, an ornamental pumpkin and two candle holders.

Our dining room is a work in process but I must say, I love the table runner full of pumpkins. I filled two carriages of assorted pumpkins for this room all in blues, greens and whites.  When in doubt, buy more and return what you don’t use!

I layered two runners featuring sea colored pumpkins and then added the pumpkins and candle holders. I snipped some fresh greens and dried ornamental grass from my yard and placed them in between the pumpkins.

My intention was to decorate this space with vases and all candles but when I started shopping, I kept seeing all these beautiful pumpkins and thought, where can I put those? That is when I decided the dining room table would be a great spot for a collection of pumpkins.

I decided the purple and gray velvet pumpkins added a pop of color and a lush texture to the glass and ceramic pumpkins.

Our kitchen is nothing like our previous white kitchen and while I still do love a white kitchen, this one happens to be growing on me. I decided to use the pumpkin sign ( I used 3M double sided tape to hang it)  from last year along with the dishes and platters to create a festive scene above the refrigerator. The Fall platters, dishes and water pitchers tied in perfectly with the faux leaves and pumpkins.

Not to get off topic but I am thinking large iron lantern styled pendants would look great in the kitchen.

Lastly, the front door has been a challenge for me since we moved in. It’s large in size and the entrance area boasts a significant space for decor.

I am normally not a fan of faux flowers or arrangements but these two oversized metal buckets filled with fall decorative accents were perfect for the front door. I mixed in real plants, ornamental grasses and pumpkins and the faux planters turned out to be a great find.

When you are stuck for inspiration and  just can’t seem to wrap your head around what you want to do for seasonal decor, just go shopping at HomeGoods and see what they have. Often times I show up to the store with one design in mind and completely change my mind once I start shopping. That is the whole point of #gofinding! It’s a treasure hunt to create a home with unique merchandise that you love and is affordable.
