Transition Home Decor with the Textures of Fall


This week’s guest blogger is Amie Freling-Brown of Meme Hill Studio. She is also a regular contributor to our Happy by Design Pinterest page.

As the weather gets chillier and the leaves start to turn colors, I look to make changes at home — with that brings loads of texture. No matter your decorating style, adding texture to your home can be simple. From modern to eclectic to traditional, and everything in between, the autumnal journey brings in warmth and comfort.

These seasonal changes don’t have to cost a fortune. I turn to accessories with tactile qualities that second for pieces of art!


As a self-proclaimed pillow junkie, I start with the sofas, beds and chairs. For the past few years there has been a trend in global patterns. I absolutely love the nomadic look of these tapestry pillows and poufs.

Pattern Play

It doesn’t matter if the prints and patterns are off from each other. It’s all part of the collected look.

I’ve used them in this traditional home and paired them with cozy throw blankets. The rich, colors, patterns and texture add so much depth to this neutral room. Notice the zig-zag is repeated in both the throw and pillow?

You can never have too many poufs. Here, I’ve mixed the gray and beige. They are great for side tables and extra seating, while taking up such little space.

Nothing says fall more than pumpkins! On a recent shopping trip to HomeGoods I found two entire rows of them, and you better believe that I scooped some up! I was immediately drawn to the silver one with the embossed copper top. Mix and match your pumpkin collection for an interesting, collected look.

A cozy wool throw with extra long, pumpkin-colored fringe adds more texture and a pop of color to this neutral sitting area. More cream ceramic pumpkin jars hold sweet treats that even Rosie the Sheepdog can’t resist!

If you invest in one thing this fall, make it copper. In the kitchen, we’ve added new copper serving pieces from HomeGoods to bring in the autumn colors. It blends in perfectly with the existing vintage copper and black and white decor. Wheatgrass, acorns and pumpkins are scattered throughout the shelving.

The decorating possibilities with mini pumpkins are endless! I added them to the bar area, but later on they will make a perfect addition to my harvest table setting.

A wooden and silver turkey tray gets a quick centerpiece of harvest pumpkins, gourds and sunflowers. It will take centerstage on the island until Thanksgiving dinner.

Mirrors are a perfect addition to a room. They reflect light and give the illusion of a larger space. A rustic wood starburst mirror gives us a porthole view into the formal living room.

Layer on the texture with seasonal colors. Here, I’ve chosen a merlot-colored knitted throw blanket, down accent pillows and botanical art from HomeGoods.

Fall brings the holidays and the holidays bring guests. In the guest bedroom we changed out the summer white bedding for a layered, rich jewel-toned color palette. Paisley bedding from HomeGoods is paired with deep turquoise velvet pillows and a woven throw. These gorgeous rich throws are my go-to for affordable seasonal color and texture.

I take the mix-and-match approach and add ceramic vases, candle holders and seasonal decorative accents to further layer on the color and texture.
