My Must-Do Home Decor Projects

Fall is coming.

I have to admit, as much fun as summer has been, when I think of fall I get a bit giddy.  I love a schedule.  I love order.  I love a picked up & clean house.  Fall brings those things.  My home is full of so many sweet young ones all summer long that it certainly does not stay in order.

Home decor and projects for sure take the back burner in the summer.  Another reason to look forward to fall.  I’m feeling the itch to update some things around here.  Paint a few rooms, do a few decor projects.

Here are a few from my Home Decor Pinterest Board that I would LOVE to do:

I must find a wall to paint black. The white frames lighten it up & pop!
Another dark wall.  Love how clean and simple everything is. I’d like to copy that framed ‘love.’

This site is said to have great prices on area rugs.  I just swapped my upstairs furniture with my downstairs furniture, and I really like it, but now I need a pop of color in my living room.  A new area rug would be the perfect solution.
We have a desk in our upstairs landing area that is unused.  I bet if I jarred up all our fun art supplies and made an art station, it would no longer be lonely.  I might top it with a piece of glass, though, as that would be much easier to clean than stained wood.

I like that vase of limbs.  That would be an inexpensive way to add some texture, height and interest to a room & to fill in a blank area.

You could easily change out the pictures, add children’s art, add color, inspirational quotes, scripture verses etc.  Not diggin’ the curtains, though!

Hurricanes and dollar store pillars.  I love candles in the fall and winter.  I love large scale decorative items.  I love cheap and simple.  I love this!

Those numbers are rad.  So is that door handle. The idea of planting grass in a planter and cutting it back in the fall for fall color, texture and beauty is brilliant!  

The size and layout of this bathroom reminds me of mine, but mine has white beadboard and the paint color above it is awful baby poo green.  Sorry, there is just no other way to describe it.  I don’t know why I chose that color over 5 years ago, but it must GO!  My bathroom is dark, so the idea of shutters that still let in light but gives privacy is really appealing.  I don’t think I could do the white shower curtain, maybe big grey and white stripes?

Ahhh… graphic pillows.  I want one that says ‘Rest.’

Looking back on all of these, it is clear I am wanting more shades of white, grey and black.  I love color, but I especially love bringing in pops of color to a more neutral background. 
I sure hope I am feeling this motivated come fall!  I’m itchin’ to get at some of these home decor projects!
How about you?  Got any home project plans coming up in the fall?

    It is kind of funny I was itching for summer so I could work on all the projects I wanted to get done. Currently I’m working on two. Painting all the trim and doors in our house and making a desk for our den. The first job I now realize is huge and will not get all done but I’m excited for the den..I hope it turns out like I have it pictured in my head.

    That wall in the first picture is amazing. I also am liking the black wall.

    did you notice in the first picture that there seems to be a glossy stencil on the wall? I’m loving that look lately too
