Inexpensive Ways to Add Fall to your Home

 Autumn is one of the most beloved seasons on the East Coast. People get excited for changing leaves, temperate weather, pumpkin-flavored everything, and decorating their homes and tables for the season. Especially in the era of quarantine, adding a little something special to your home this time of year might be just what you need to calm your home-schooling/stuck-inside nerves! 

But there's no need to spend a fortune for a little Fall pick-me-up. Here are my favorite, inexpensive options for Fall decorating! 

We all appreciate the delivery people bringing us our essentials, gifts, school supplies and home-shopping splurges. So give them something nice to see when they walk up next time! 

Love this inexpensive combo from Amazon! 


Layering on chunky, fringy throws just makes you want to be inside more. I love this inexpensive, graphic addition from Amazon

Or this rust and ivory striped one from Target 


Fall-color catchalls are a great Fall addition, adding style points to your entry, kitchen counter or centered on your dining room table. 

I love this black bowl for a modern take - fill it with bright red apples for a twist on a center piece. 

And a copper one immediately warms up any surface 


No need to overthink it. Candles are a staple for Fall decor. Pick your favorite Fall-themed scent and splurge on the pretty container. 


Change up your throw pillows. You don't need to pick out ones that say "Autumn" and are covered with leaves - Fall tones, chunky textures and graphic patterns all hint at the changing season. 

Like this inexpensive copper pillow from World Market 

I love this graphic black and white cover from H&M - works great for Autumn simplicity but transitions nicely to Halloween decorating! 


Go outside with your Fall decorating - before the snow falls, enjoy the outdoors as much as possible!  

Ok, so not as cheap as the rest of the items on the list, this fire pit is a great investment piece. Its unique shape means it can fit in tighter places and work more as a focal fireplace too 

Add Autumn ambiance with lanterns 

This set would be wonderful around a patio and this copper-colored pair would be a wonderful table top addition 


Finally, don't forget about adding nature inside and out - grabbing some mums or cabbage plants, a few pumpkins and even just cutting some fall branches can be an inexpensive way of adding Autumn to your home! 

P.s. It should come as no surprise that these fun, inexpensive additions also make for great suggestive staging when listing your home in the Fall! Embrace the season you are selling in and add some Autumnal touches for added homey-ness.

Client Renovation Story: A Masculine Update in South Philly

This year I am happy to present real-life examples, from my wonderful clients, of people making houses their own. In many cases that I will share here, that goes beyond decor and paint. I have been fortunate enough to work with many wonderful clients who saw potential in a home and realized all or some of that potential in their homes so far. Its great to see people making less-than-perfect homes their own, earn some equity in the process and, of course, share their story! ---  For our first Renovation Story we have the wonderful Kevin, who is remarkable with the work he does on homes. (He's also a talented musician and you can follow him on Instagram !)  This is actually his third home I've seen him work his magic on. When I helped him buy his current place almost 4 years ago, it was a typical South Philly row home. It wasn't awful, but it was a little bland and dated everywhere and the kitchen smelled remarkably of cooking oils. But Kevin had a vision and he k

The Tale of Two Bathrooms

I talk a lot on this blog about DIY updates, inexpensive upgrades, and not passing on homes that require a little TLC. I do all of that because I personally find a lot of value in saving the money, making your own equity in a home, and putting your own spin on things. I've had a chance to compare two bathroom projects in my own home. We are finishing up our master bathroom renovation 4 years after we renovated our hall bathroom. Our house is a mid-century split and it came with all of the wonderful mid-century bathroom tile that you surely know well. We had a blue bathroom... A fuchsia half bath with carpet (eww...) We had a light pink master bathroom with a corner shower.... We had/have a yellow guest bathroom.... The reason we were able to afford a house with 4 toilets was because they were dated, and for that I am very grateful! And these bathrooms were SO WELL MADE. I know there are some people out there who hate gutting these mid-century baths, even
