Transitioning summer decor to fall decorating without the fuss
Good day friends! There certainly was no fussing for me in terms of decorating for the fall season. In fact, this year was the easiest transition for me. Today I am sharing transitioning summer decor to fall decorating without the fuss.
Most of you know I have been busy over at Home pressure cooking.
I still miss all my friendly happy faces over here at Debbiedoo’s. I obviously still love to fluff the house too per season. The thing is though, honestly it is without any stress or worry. I have realized since not blogging over here as much that we as bloggers really tend to over do it. We put a lot of stress on ourselves in terms of staging, photographing and getting our content out there in a hurry. There is only a small window of time before you are considered too late. It’s all crazy stuff. I don’t have those stresses anymore and simply am sharing on my own terms, and my own schedule:)
Because I loved my tablecloth curtains so much that I did in the summer, I really was not ready to take them down. In fact, they may even stay up until after the New year. I feel with the colorful and happy pattern I can decorate around them for the season. That is exactly what I did for fall.
Most everything I had already in my Fall bins. The only new purchase I made were some colorful pumpkins I found at Michael’s. The colors were non-traditional and just so happen to coordinate with my valances. Find my NO-Sew kitchen valances HERE.
Another interesting note since I am not such a regular here. I notice I did not stress on perfection. For example, the paper towel holder needs paper towels. That would have never gone unnoticed before.
Here is a recent quickie project my husband and I did behind the back splash. I found the pretty copper faux tin sheet at Home Depot for less than $20.00. I have always struggled with finding just the right accessory to put behind the stove. This took care of that. We used self adhesive Velcro strips. That way no damage to the decorative tile.
I love mixing copper, silver and bronzes. I don’t believe everything needs to be so matchy matchy. I very well could be wrong according to top designers, but I really don’t care. I like what I like and it’s our home:) You should always decorate with things you love.
The copper platter and tea pot Mike and I have had for years. I can’t remember if that was something my Mom found for us, or we found it at a thrift store.
Clearly I love my roosters:) Always have, always will.
Now on to the dining area.
I simply added a few fall accessories of things I already have.
On the summer wreath I added a fall flower or two. Again, keeping it a simple transition. Whew, those outside windows need a cleaning! We will tackle that job soon. We had lots of rain last week and wind. Dirty windows are the norm around here.
Remember my DIY Gather here lazy Susan? I just brought that back out for the season. I love it still. Find how to make your own lazy susan here.
My owl stencil is perfect for the season. (No longer available) I have pillows and signs galore of all my stencil projects.
That about covers the easy fall decorating in the kitchen. Next I will share the family room!
Thanks for stopping over today. As mentioned most days now you can find me over at Home pressure cooking!
Great to see y’all!
You can find some blasts to the past Fall decorating HERE. I have lots of budget friendly crafts and home decor ideas for you.

Debbie, your home looks warm, inviting, and lived in – unlike some of the blogs out there where rooms look untouched by humans or pets. I love your mix of metals and the simplicity of your fall decor.
Thank Pam. It certainly is lived in. Every last square inch of it lol.
As always, it is beautiful! And 10 minutes?? It took me two days! And my results are still under my scrutiny, changing things every day. . . You’re my inspiration, Deb! I have a question, though. To the left of your cook top, that piece with the bent spoons used as hooks. Did you DIY that? Is there a tutorial? If you bought it, do you remember where? THANKS! Have a happy Saturday!
Hi Judy, Mike bought that for me a few years back at Cracker Barrel. They have some of the cutest things. Thanks for stopping by.
Thank YOU for getting back to me. I’ll wander over to CB and take a look. 🙂
You’re welcome Judy! Good luck.

I love your curtains, also. I would leave them up as long as possible.
I am! I love them so much too!
Everything looks beautiful, Debbie! Your kitchen & dining room are always lovely at any time of year. I love your whole relaxed, mix & match attitude. I’ve been doing a lot of the same. I decorate how I like & I share it. Just the fact that my Fall decor is colorful probably puts me at odds with everyone else!
Hi Gina!!!!! I was so happy to see you on Instagram the other day. I have always loved loved loved your home and style!
Debbie so happy when I see an email from you. I love the warmth and beauty you have made. I lost my house to fire and all my things in it. I have to start over. Still looking for the house I want to live in. I have been following you and I have the chance to not put in this house everything I always used. Thank you for sharing.
Oh Jody, I am so sorry to hear that. Blessed though you didn’t lose life. Most things can replaced. Start shopping in thrift stores and antique malls. You will be surprised what you can find to rebuild your home with new treasures. Best wishes to you.
Sumple is always best…your home is very inviting, as always. So very nice to have a post from you today! Happy Fall!
Thanks Kathleen. It is nice to be here today!
So glad to see your fall decorating! Always a bright spot in my day when you post on here. I followed you faithfully and learned so much from you. I loved your stenciling at the holidays with your mom (she is a hoot)? and sister! And your mom sharing what was in her makeup bag? Hope you share your family again this year.
I will Ginny. They will be here again for Thanksgiving. I will think of something fun for us to do together:) I am sure my Mom has new makeup by now too LOL. She let her hair go naturally gray now, so she has a new look. Stunning I must say!

I love the tin piece behind your stove. I am getting ready to do the same thing. Love the country feel of it. Love the color of your pumpkins.
Norma Rolader says

Thank you Norma. Blessings to you too.

What a great tip about using Velcro on the tin backsplash! And I love how you framed it.
That frame was part of our already decorative back splash. However, a frame would be a great idea as well.
I love your kitchen…..we spend a lot of time in our kitchen so I have it decorated like I do with the rest of the house, maybe even a little more. Love everything you have done in your kitchen. Looks Great 🙂
Kitchen’s are always the heart of the home for sure. You must love what you live in. Even if you can’t afford a whole lot I believe in thrift stores. You just never know what your next treasure can be.
Happy Fall Debbie!
Your home looks great all “falled up”! Its sunny and 90 today up here in New England, not fallish at all yet! I haven’t brought myself to start fall decorating yet, it’s still full on summer here and I am taking this all in!!! I know what is lurking not too long from now, LOL!!!
That is true, and I don’t blame you. It’s actually still quite warm here too in the South. I can’t help myself though. I love the season so much! Thanks for stopping by Kaycee.

Love the kitchen dressed for Fall Debbie!…The faux tin on the stove backsplash is so beautiful..the perfect compliment for Fall…I am sure you are enjoying your boys this Fall as football season is gearing up! Happy Fall Debbie!
Your kitchen is always so much fun to see, Debbie! Just keep breaking those decorating rules….it’s working!
I love your beautiful kitchen. Everything is amazing looking. Thank you for sharing.
About 5 years ago we purchased the faux tins in bronze and did a whole back splash. I love the rustic look. Your home always brings such joy to all of us on your blog. Hugs!
Thank you sweet Denise! So much.
Debbiedoo you should really do home interior work you would make a fortune
Thank you Barbara, very sweet. I have dabbled in it. It was fun!

I love the ’tile’ focal point—that really brings the room together. We will be replacing our stove soon and there will be a big gap on the wall, I’m actually thinking this may be perfect.
