I love giving my home a seasonal makeover, and with fall's tendency for gloomy weather and lack of daylight hours, it's the perfect time to enlist the help of decor to turn my home, room by room, into a cozy space. With a rich palette of browns, reds and oranges that mimic the turn of nature taking place in my garden, and beautiful textiles that bring warmth and coziness, there is so much you can do with decor to create a safe cocooning space that celebrates the season. 

The kitchen is no exception, and while it's not typically a space reserved for decor, we're seeing more and more kitchen decor used in these rooms to bring character and charm. And I particularly love decor that has a seasonal twist - a vase of fresh, wildflowers in the summer, a fruit bowl displaying the season's harvest. So with that in mind, I've scoured the best home decor websites for decorative pieces to bring a cheery autumnal atmosphere to your kitchen this fall.

What decor should I have on display in the kitchen?

To add a feeling of homeliness to the space, decor is as important in the kitchen as it is in all other rooms of the house. It is a space where friends and family congregate, so it needs to feel welcoming and lived in, and decor is a great way to achieve this. 'Kitchen accessories are a great way to then build on those key elements and add a visual pop and some personality,' says Regan Baker of Regan Baker Design.

But curating an eclectic space requires the careful selection of a small number of beloved items rather than culminating lots of random things. 'Start off by picking the most special and sentimental objects you have and work from there. Think about connections - be it color, texture, shape - between things, and let that be how you shape the space,' says designer, Naomi Astley Clarke.

For example, a group of vases with garden branches and flowers to bring the outside in. A beautiful statement bowl full of fruit can also work well. I love kitchen accessories and decor that double up as functional pieces, a china butter dish in a color pop shade, a pestle and mortar made of marble to bring a luxe feel - these practical pieces too can be beautiful.
