Happy Fall, my friends! I have finally started adding some fall decor to our home this month and I have to say, I am loving how it is looking. I started in the kitchen, since that’s where I spend most of my time, and chose a very different color palette this year. As I was decorating, I was thinking about some of the basic things that I do each year to decorate for a new season, so today I wanted to share some tips with you for how to add fall decor to a kitchen.

A few weeks ago, I share my 5 Fall Decorating Essentials with you and those elements are included in my kitchen decorating tips today. I almost always include eucalyptus in my fall decor and this year is no different. the unexpected twist is, that I chose soft blush tone eucalyptus branches instead of traditional green tones.
I fell in love with these branches when I saw them at Michael’s last week. I wasn’t even shopping for fall decor, but these soft tones caught my eye and I decided to give them a try. They became the centerpiece element in my fall decor and I absolutely love it.
TIP #1: CHOOSE A CENTERPIECE COLOR FOR YOUR FALL DECOR
This oversized arrangement takes centerstage in our kitchen and sets the tone for the rest of the decor.
One of the other elements that I love to add to my kitchen in the fall is wood. Whether in a stack of oversized breadboards or a dough bowl filled with mini white pumpkins, I find that wood elements add warmth to my fall kitchen decor that is subtle but beautiful.
I love the look of a vintage bread board propped against the kitchen backsplash.
TIP #2 – ADD WOOD ELEMENTS TO YOUR KITCHEN
My all time favorite fall decor element is copper, and there are so many great ways to incorporate this in your fall kitchen decor.
I usually start by replacing the white ceramic pottery in my glass front cabinets with my favorite copper bowls and pitchers. This immediately warms up the look of my cabinets and changes the look in my kitchen.
I also love the combination of copper and wheat elements mixed together, so I added a wheat wreath above my range and a couple of
TIP # 3 – ADD COPPER PIECES TO YOUR COUNTERTOPS OR CABINETS
If you don’t have open cabinets to display copper, consider hanging copper pots above your range or adding a copper bowl filled with fruit.
I keep some copper in my kitchen all year, but in fall and winter it seems especially appropriate.
The combination of wood, copper and blush eucalyptus branches makes for a subtle but pretty transition to fall.
No fall decor would be complete without some perfectly placed pumpkins.
TIP #4 – ADD INTERESTING PUMPKINS
I like a traditional orange pumpkin as much as the next girl, but I truly adore the heirloom and fairytale pumpkins that seem to be readily available in grocery stores these days. Whether it’s the soft blue-green tone or a muted orange, a dough bowl filled with oversized pumpkins is the perfect way to add fall decor to a kitchen!
I hope this gives you some ideas about how to add fall decor to a kitchen in simple and fun ways.
