Fall Inspiration: Gingko Leaves

| |

This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Gingko leaves and branches have been an up-and-coming trend this year, and I’ve been seeing them all over the home decor scene this autumn. They’re also a part of my personal folklore, a tongue-in-cheek reminder of my college years.  The gorgeous ginkgo trees that lined the main walkway of my university (the same place where I met my darling husband) would turn a stunning gold each autumn.  The FUNNY part is that they also drop the most foul smelling berries in the history of berries.  Stepping on one of those puppies could ruin your day– or at least force an outfit change.  Seriously.  Foul.  Yet, so pretty.  Like pretty dog poop.  Which doesn’t exist.  But, similar to ginkgo berries.

Despite the stink, they ARE lovely.  Plus it’s a reminder for us as a couple of those fun years at our mutual alma mater.  I’ve rounded up a few ginkgo inspired looks so you can enjoy the beauty without the smell.  YOU’RE WELCOME.

Gold Ginkgo Leaf Knob

I bought one of these sweet gold ginkgo knobs from Anthropology for our coat closet.  It’s cliche, but every time I touch it, it gives me a little bit of the happy. 😉

Despite the awkward photo, you can kinda see how it greets our college friends with a knowing wink, as if to invite them for a round of beer pong.

Ginkgo… Scarf?  Pillow?  Anyone speak German?

I have no idea what this is because it’s in another language, but I’m going to pretend it’s a scarf and then go covet it because I’m in lurve with the simple design and soft monochromatic colors.

What do you think– did I convert you to the dark side of loving ginkgos too?  Was there a favorite among the bunch, or are you on the fence and not quite willing to love a tree full of such conflicting emotions?
