Coastal Fall Decor - Kitchen Island



It's way too hot yet to be cooking anything, so instead, I'm cooking up some ideas for fall kitchen decor. As usual, I like simple displays without much clutter.

I have a pretty white chippy bowl that has been filled with seashells for the summer months. I dumped them out and filled the bowl with moss filler.  I think it's time to introduce the coastal colors of fall to my kitchen. My coastal autumn colors of choice are the blue and grey and cream colored pumpkins.  They will go well with my mostly white and blue cottage colors.





I tried different sizes and stacked them to see which collection fit nicely together. I wound up removing the larger white pumpkin in the background and using the smaller pumpkins for easier stacking.



The next step, after all the pumpkins were nice and snug,  was just to start filling in the gaps with fall filler items. I had a bag of fall potpourri that had very large woodsy pieces, so I arranged those in the holes.


This white  ironstone pitcher is perfect for an easy fall floral arrangement.  How's that for easy?




My fall beach kitchen vignette......clean and simple!




Thanks so much for visiting Sea Glass today -- and hey, if you have cooler weather where you live, would you mind nudging just a little of it down south? ;)

    1. Thanks, Beverly! I'm enjoying this new type of fall transition -- for me, I've always been about the earthy gold and reds of autumn. A coastal fall is a very fun twist!

  7. Very nice! I love the colour scheme- we are using something like this for our new cottage by the lake. And the large woodsy pieces- are those dried pomegranate peels? They're gorgeous, I think I'll have to save ours when they start coming back to the stores!

    1. You know, I didn't think they were dried pomegranate peels until you mentioned it! (I thought it was just a woodsy floral piece in potpourri.) They could be. ;)
