~Transitioning Decor Between Seasons~

Happy Thursday! Hope you've had a great week so far! We are experiencing some abnormally 'cool' and rainy weather, with highs only in the upper 70's.  Weather like this has me in the mood for Fall.  I have been using these dreary days to do some deep cleaning. Of course, with deep cleaning, comes the desire to transition some of my decor for late Summer, in anticipation of Fall. While I am not ready to pull out the true fall decor, I have put away a lot of my Spring/Summer decor.

Throws and Pillows:

One of the things that I like to use are faux fur pillows and throws. These are actually becoming quite popular to use year 'round, especially with the popularity of chic, glam decor right now. I have paired an oversized faux fur pillow with a small leopard accent pillow, along with my favorite leather fringed pouf pillow.

Fresh flowers:

During the Spring and Summer, I have used lots of white and pink flowers. Yesterday, I was so excited to see these orange roses. They provided a perfect pop of transitional color to the family room coffee table. Sunflowers are another favorite for this time of year.

Scented candles:

On one of our really dreary days, my daughter and I went to Bath and Body Works, to stock up on the new fall candles, that we like to burn on a daily basis. While we picked up some in the traditional fall scents, we also picked up some that are quite transitional. For the past couple of days, we have been enjoying 'Marshmallow Fireside'. It doesn't scream, "Fall".  It just gives the home a very warm and welcoming scent.

I've also spent a little bit of time adding some new desk accents. I shared this image on Instagram last week. (Be sure to follow me there, as well. I often post things that may not appear here on the blog.)

I love the crisp look of black and white stripes, with that 'pop' of pink!

What about you? Are you gearing up for Fall?
I'd love to hear how and if you transition your decor!
Thanks so much for stopping by today !
Happy Decorating!

  1. Shenita,
    Gorgeous Roses, dear friend!
    I have similar hues of Gingersnap Roses blooming in the Rose Garden!
    Autumnal decor has begun!
    I begin at the Entry Hall and work my around through the upper level Living Room.
    Thank you for sharing your "beginnings" of Autumnal Decor!

  2. Hi Shenita! Girl, am I gearing up for Fall? YES!!! I can't wait to see your home decorated for the season. You always inspire me. I love the vase and beautiful flowers and those throw pillows, LOVE - LOVE- LOVE! I also adore that candle holder with the dropped beads, gorgeous. So.....until your next post, enjoy adding the cozy warmth of fall to your home. XO, ~Liz

  3. I know that your home is warm and inviting any time of year, but I bet you take it up a notch during fall and winter:-) Love your fall accents, and I bought some summer candles from BBW after you recommended them, and love them still. I guess I need to transition over to more autumnal scents now:-)

  4. This cooler weather has been a fall tease, hasn't it? I'm looking forward to changing things around at my house soon! You've given me some great ideas.

  5. It has been so hot here, I am ready for the cooler months and love bringing fall into our home. One of my favorite times of the year. We love faux fur pillows during the fall and winter months.

  6. Hi Shenita! Oh, your home is just gorgeous! I love seeing everything you do and those flowers are just gorgeous! Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. Shenita, lovely transitions...the roses are such a beautiful pop of color. I need to try the scented candle! Beautiful style, as always! Pam @ Everyday Living

  8. I'm resisting the temptation to transition to fall just yet but I always love the colors of the season. I don't think I've ever bought candles and Bed & Bath before. The roses are beautiful!

  9. Hasn't this weather been glorious? Can you believe it's Texas? You are so right Shenita. It's been perfect weather to do a bit of poofing. I love those roses. The color is so rich and adds such a beautiful pop of color to your decor!

  10. Oh dear friend I have been missing your gorgeous home and décor and here it is, gorgeous as ever! Love your blue and white pieces and how you have them displayed with the beautiful roses and the pillows are swoonnn!!!
    I love that kind of weather, it's just perfect to start doing some tiny-little Fall playing, here and there!!

  11. I'm not transitioning to fall yet because it is still blazing hot here in SC! I don't think I could take the fireside marshmallow candle because I would have to make smores every time I smelled it! I don't have much willpower! Your transitional décor does look lovely as always!

  12. Love your transitions!...the flowers, the beautiful flowers and the scents!...So nice you are not experiencing the intense heat..I cannot wait until the cooler temps come!...

  13. It is really hot where I live, it doesn't cool down until November. I can tell fall is on its way by the crepe mrytle shedding its leaves and the morning air is different so I enjoyed your suggestions on how to transition to fall.

  14. Love those pretty orange roses! I have not done any Fall decorating yet. It is still blazing hot here in GA. We've been fortunate to get some rain lately, but it hasn't really cooled us down much. It's just left it more sticky and humid. Ugh! It doesn't usually really start to feel like Fall here (to me) until October. So, I will probably continue having a "summer frame of mind" until then.

  15. I am so ready for fall Shenita!!! Your ideas are just beautiful. Love the orange roses with your pretty blue and white ginger jars. This week the humidity is suppose to disappear and cooler temps are going to move on in...the perfect week to get into my attic to fish out some of my fall items. Thanks for the inspiration and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!!!
    XO Barbara

  16. I do love the black and white striped and pink...classy. Your transition is lovely. Beautiful candles glowing and pretty flowers freshen up any space. I have been working on a few looks myself. The weather is hot still, but the night do cool a little. Thanks for sharing your lovely home at DI&DI. Have a great week.

  17. Loving ho you transition into Fall! Those orange roses are perfect! Thanks so much for joining the DI & DI Link Party.

  18. Hi Shenita! Oh, honey! Your transition is just gorgeous! Your room is gorgeous! Love seeing all of your touches and those blue and white pieces make my heart skip a beat! Thanks for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  19. That room is so pretty! After seeing all the devastation here it's got me thinking about cleaning out my house. I'm ready to get organized & get rid of the stuff I don't love. I really wish we had some of those 70 degree days!!

  20. Loving the fresh flowers, throws and pillows too ♥

  21. What a beautiful transition to fall! Love the black and white with a pop of pink. Happy Wednesday!

  22. Nice transitioning to Fall. The orange roses are perfect and certainly make me think fall with their great color. The pillows and throws also look fall. I'd say you have made a step into fall.

  23. Lovely! One of my favorite things about fall is that I burn more candles.
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  24. Pretty! I'm gearing up but not doing just yet. The ideas are swirling bit by bit in my mind and I have to figure out what I can do while our house is for sale.

    I love your pillows and definitely the candles.
