Fall is one of my favorite times of the year to add some punch to my kitchen. It’s so easy to incorporate a bit of that fall feeling into the busiest room in the house, so it not only smells good due to all that seasonal baking, but looks good too. Although most of us dream of having a complete kitchen renovation, sometimes it’s the little touches that make a big impact. Here are some great fall products to add a little spice to your kitchen.

 autumn decor

Harvest Candelabrum - This fall candelabrum is a perfect addition to your eat-in kitchen table or any place in your kitchen that needs a lift. It has all the traditional fall colors displayed through berries, fruits, and foliage. Light the three hurricane candles to bring a bit of warmth to those cool autumn nights and enjoy a dinner by candlelight.  


Pumpkin Tureen - Leave it to Pier 1 Imports to come up with such a whimsical and unique creation. Why ladle soup from any old tureen when a pumpkin one seems like such a natural choice? Serve those hearty fall stews, chilis, and soups with panache. This tureen is impressive, it’s whimsical and it’s fun, and you can even get a matching set of pumpkin bowls (pictured above). When not using it at mealtime, display it on a kitchen shelf or even a bare spot on your counter. It makes for a great conversation piece.
 
 fall decor pillows

Embroidered Pillow Covers - If you’re lucky enough to have a banquette in your kitchen, put these embroidered pillow covers from Pottery Barn to work. Pillow covers are a quick and easy way to add a new look to any room and are perfect for that cozy corner in your kitchen. This one comes in two different colors, so you’re sure to find one that will tie into your décor.

 Fall kitchen decor

Pumpkin Dish Towel and Accessories - The quickest and easiest way to add fall color and style into your kitchen is with seasonal dish towels hung over your oven’s door handle. I found lots of adorable styles at Crate and Barrel. The great thing about this store is that you can find matching oven mitts and pot cloths, and even a matching apron. For not a lot of money, you can give your kitchen a whole new look.


Hedgehog Cutting Board - Recently, Krisztina mentioned that hedgehogs are the latest decorating trend this fall. To go with that theme, I found this adorable cutting board and tea box on Etsy featuring a hedgehog and a pumpkin. Leave them out on your kitchen counter for a splash of color and character — these items are both fun and functional. Both pieces are made of rustic wood and are hand-painted and lightly distressed for a warm and welcoming touch.

Little touches like these can make a big difference in your kitchen and inject the perfect amount of autumn into your décor. How do you like to decorate for fall? Leave me a comment below!
