Every year I struggle decorating our home for fall- my default mode is lots of white, greens, and light woods that naturally feel more summery. I usually just end up buying tiny pumpkins, scattering them around the house, and calling it a day. This year though, I really wanted to tie in that summer feel. What better way to do that than with a little gold?
Do you guys follow Idle Hands Awake? Marlene did an amazing bedroom makeover, and I kept coming back to how she used copper botanicals to brighten up her bedside. But seeing how this house is a Florida home, we of course had to use palm fronds.
I had pretty good success shaping the fronds post painting, but to make sure there is absolutely zero cracking, shape the fronds before spraying.

Stick the fronds into a weighted can. Lightly spray paint the top of the fronds, making sure to really cover the tips.
Flip the fronds over and repeat to the underside.
I love how these go with the Anthropologie inspired vases and helps keep transition the rest of home into fall!
Shortly after shooting this, I saw something similar on Anthropologie’s site. I have to say, I prefer the DIY! Mostly because I’d feel ridiculous spending $30+¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
What’s your favorite season to decorate for?
