What makes me happy is the season of fall. I love this time of year. I lightly style the kitchen, so I'm going to share some styling ideas with you today. I adore the fall season—it's a time when every leaf turns into art, and the air carries the scent of warm cinnamon and fresh apples.

As I revamp my space, I love starting with a clean slate, taking the time to wipe down countertops and backsplash to welcome the new season as I change out my decor from summer to fall.

Once I get finished with that, I go ahead and start styling.

I have three distinct areas in my kitchen—a large space beside our stove, a central hub we use for prepping, it’s where the culinary magic happens, and a cozy long island that is a great gathering spot for our family and meal prep.

I usually keep the area next to the stove and the center island with minimal decor because we need the space for food prep and cooking. The fall pieces I'm styling with I found this year at HomeGoods. So, if you are looking for a similar product, now is probably the time to go in there and check it out.

Stove area in the kitchen

Stove area

The area next to the stove is all about functionality, which meets style. I also like to style underneath our range hood with something that we can easily remove when it's time to cook.

Fall vases filled with fall stems

I set up a simple display with two vases filled with fall stems and a candle on the left side of the stove.

I have a rustic wine crate side sign, adding a vintage touch.

Pretty cutting boards

I am stacking on top of that some really pretty cutting boards that, again, can easily be moved when it's time to prep for cooking.

The cutting boards are not just decorative but ready to use for chopping all my fresh fall produce. On the other side of the stove, I just got creative with an older cherished piece that now has a renewed purpose.

Vibrant fall picks

It holds vibrant fall picks, bringing a burst of fall colors and a colorful fall vibe to the space.

Kitchen island

My kitchen prep island is a place where creativity unfurls! I get to have some fun and fill it in with all the pretty things.

Tall glass pot with autumn foliage

I filled a tall glass pot with metallic eucalyptus and placed a few of my favorite things around it.

Velvet pumpkins for texture

Velvet pumpkins for texture, a favorite kitchen towel to create a vignette that holds my candle care accessories, and another candle to add even more warmth and coziness to the space.

Long seating island

Long seating island

I've adorned it with a spectacular runner boasting warm tones and intricate textures. It's extra long and fits perfectly on the island.

Fall table runner

So, I picked that up and used it to set the stage for creatively displaying pieces from older dinnerware I have. It's especially beautiful because I've come up with novel place-setting ideas.

Fall tablescape

I added a long fall centerpiece filled with autumn favorites that stretches the length of the island, placing it on top of the runner.

Fall scene on a table

This area is a haven of beauty meeting utility, a place where every piece is part of a beautiful, larger fall scene.

Hopefully, styling the kitchen with me gave you some great ideas for your own kitchen.

Fall family room decor

Now, let's transition into the family room, the heart of our home, where comfort meets style. As I unroll those soft fall-colored pillow covers, there's one special new addition to our collection that I am incredibly excited to share with you all.

Let’s Get Cozy pillow on the sofa

My Let’s Get Cozy pillow is new this year, a fun touch to my fall sofa area.

Let's dive into the styling process, where every fabric and hue is carefully chosen to invoke a warm embrace, echoing the gentle falling leaves outside, inviting us to snuggle in and truly "fall" into fall.

After adding pillows, a couple of well-placed comfy throws add additional softness to the family room.

I placed a woven tray of well-loved items on the ottoman to create a personal display.

A candle in the midst of the display gives off an intimate, warm glow.
