5 Simple Decorating Ideas for French Country Coastal Fall Style – French Coastal Decor Inspiration – Coastal Grandmother Aesthetics – Coastal Fall Decorating Ideas & Inspiration – French Country Style




Hello Friends,

It’s almost that time of year again, my friends…time to pull out all of the Fall Decor! Are the pumpkins, gourds, and fall foliage calling your name yet? Do you need some Fall decorating ideas & inspiration? I’ve got you covered!

Today, a few of my sweet friends and I are having an Early Fall Decorating Blog Hop and you’re invited on the tour! We’re sharing how we’re transitioning our Summer decor to Fall decor, along with sharing helpful tips on how you can do the same!

If you’re coming over from Cynthia at Vintage Grace and Living, welcome! I’m so happy you’ve stopped by! I love all of her beautiful Fall decor, as I’m sure you do as well.


Early Fall Decorating…French Country Coastal Style

I’m not quite ready to go full-on Fall decorating just yet – because it’s still hot, hot, hot here in North Texas – but I did get a jumpstart on my Fall decorating by adding some seasonal decor touches here and there. Actually, I’ve blended late Summer decor with early Fall decor for now, but will be going all in come mid September.

This year, I’m trying something a little new and different for my Fall decor. I’ll still be sticking to my French Country Style aesthetics, but adding a twist of coastal style to it and keeping my color palette very subdued. I’ve never really had any sort of coastal decor in my home, although I love it, so things might get a little interesting.

I’ve aptly named this year’s Fall decor French Country Coastal Style. Does anyone else name their seasonal decor theme/style?
