Vase, Stems, Candle, Basket, Blanket, Still, A Tale of Interiors
Happy September! September is my favorite month and I don’t care who knows it. The kids are all back in school, routines are in loop, and fall is on the cusp–can’t get enough of it really. With that in mind, all I can think about these days is getting my hands on some fall branches. When it comes to branches, I’m all about grabbing a pair of clippers and heading outside to get the real thing, but sometimes what you have outside isn’t what you want, and so faux is the way to go.
The rest of the house is getting transitioned to fall (minus the parts under construction) and like I mentioned in the Fall Decor Essentials post, I’m mostly lighting candles (here are our top 21 favorites), placing cozy blankets, incorporating some gingham, and making the greenery a little less green.
We rounded up all the good ones and and I’m putting them all around the house to inspire some fall spirit, and who knows, maybe I’ll be bringing out the faux pumpkins soon. ;)

Hi – Love this image at the top – which room is that from? I would love to know the paint color.
Julia! How do you clean your faux green?!
Love the delicate Burgundy Cotinus and Golden Yellow leaf branches. And I’ve always been partial to the maples too. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest where varietals grew well, especially my favorite, Japanese Lace Maple.
Thanks for the great list with visuals!
Excited to purchase some of the stems. I also love the end table is there a source for that or is that unique find? Thank you.
Great round-up! I need to get some fall up and running in my house and stems may be the perfect way to do that!
Would love a blog post about which stems to put in which vase. I always struggle with that…
That yellow dried yarrow is calling my name!!
I love all my faux and dried stems too! Thank you for your recommendations! (I may need some of these now 😆). Related question for you though please: how do you store them all?! I’m struggling to find a good system. Thank you!
Which stem is the one you have in your main photo?!
Oh my goodness. Obviously I can’t read. Never mind!
These are lovely faux stems. Do you have 6 in the vase in the photo? I have the same vase and these look perfect!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
