With the kids back to school, I can slowly feel summer melt into fall. I am not ready for full on pumpkins and scarecrows, but it’s nice to slowly transition into autumn in my kitchen decorating with natural elements. I’m joining a few blog friends today to share how we add fall touches to fall to our kitchens. I love this view now that we finally moved the old computer cabinet. It really opens up the entire space!

I added some natural elements to the island with some awesome mugs I bought at West Elm. A bag of apples from our grocery store in a rustic wood bowl, and some grasses from the yard are and easy and inexpensive way to bring in fall. I love being able to snip the grass from my yard, it makes me feel so “harvest-y”.
If you missed it, I found this rug on Facebook Marketplace. It was a vintage rug that someone cut in half, and bound the edge on. It makes for a perfect runner! A friend of mine said it reminded her of the final scene from Willy Wonka where everything was chopped in half. The colors are perfect for that summer to fall transition, and they go so well with my peach removable watercolor wallpaper. On the sink ledge, I added a vase from the shop with a few more grasses, and a snippet of goldenrod that grow wild on the side of my house.
Under the sink, I hung some of the peach towels from my Spoonflower shop for a pop of orange color. I get a lot of questions about the towel bar from Schoolhouse Electric under my sink. We installed it where the false drawer front is when we painted the cabinets 9 years ago.
It’s the perfect place when you want to dry your hands and need a towel at the ready. People always wonder if it gets in the way if getting at things under the sink, and honestly, it doesn’t. I just scootch them over to the side when I need to grab something. Having them hang also helps them dry between uses.
The one thing I have ready for fall is my glass canisters filled with coffee and teas on our open shelves. I love my ice tea in the summer, but I really love my different hot tea in the fall and winter in the afternoons. There is something so comforting about it when the air gets a little chilly outside.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of our early fall kitchen with natural decor. You can find more of my fall decor here, or you can see more of my fall kitchen decor here. Make sure you visit the other bloggers sharing their kitchens!
