Autumn Texture and a Secret

One of the things I love about decorating for fall is the texture. It's so easy to pull in natural elements like wheat or dried twigs, and even the patina of wood fits in perfectly during autumn. I break my rule of mostly white and add little hits of reds, oranges and brown, especially in natural, textural elements.

Today I thought I'd share just a few autumn details around my house. I truly apologize for the quality of these pictures. My camera really takes awful photos, plus I was in a hurry to snap these shots before heading out the door, which made things worse. So please forgive my sub-par photography : )

Want to know a little secret? This weekend I went on my first-ever buying trip for the etsy shop I'm hoping to open. I mentioned it way back here, but now things are finally falling into place and I'm excited to open the shop by November. So stay tuned for that! Several of the items in this post will be for sale in the shop.

I filled my tarnished sugar bowl with acorns and little pumpkin smell-goodies. I can't remember what the little pods are called but I love them because they smell like autumn and add the perfect bit of texture and color.

How have you added texture for fall? I'd love to hear your ideas!
