Embrace These Fall Decorating Ideas to Make Your Home Ready For The Season
It took a few months to change from summer to fall, but it only has to take a little bit of time to add your own touch of the season to any room in your home. Try these fast and easy autumn decorating ideas to welcome the beauty of this colorful season with color-filled accents.
Throw One On
A decorative throw in the season’s color palette brings fall color to any living space. Plus, it’s handy for when the evenings turn chilly and you just need a layer to snuggle under while you watch your TV favorites.
Make the Switch
Make it a habit to switch out decorative throw pillows for your couch every season. This is one of the fastest and easiest ways to add a seasonal touch to your main living space. Utilize an ottoman with hidden storage to keep the pillows from last season.
Make an Entrance
Welcome friends and family with a fall wreath on your front door that features a mix of the season’s colorful blooms and metallic pumpkins. While you’re there, step back and take inventory of your front porch – where else could you add some fall floral arrangements and seasonal accents?
Harvest the Accents
Close your eyes and conjure up images of the quintessential things that represent the season. Changing leaves, gourds, sheaves of wheat, piles of pumpkins… now let those images be your guide to choosing fall décor accent pieces throughout your home. Display a pair of corn gourds on an entry table. Add a wheat centerpiece to your dining table. Line pumpkins along your mantel.
Let in the Sun
The sunflower, that is. This big, sunshine-filled bloom earns its place as Miss Congeniality of the season, and with good reason. Add sunflower décor in tall arrangements paired with foxtails and delicate LED lights to add a perfect touch in the evening. Or hang sunflower artwork in your kitchen or along a hallway to bring it’s golden hue to the space.
Step On It
Door mats, welcome mats and area rugs present a perfect place to add an element of seasonal décor. Think sunflowers, pumpkins and leaves to start. Add a front door mat to welcome guests, and don’t forget about the back door and kitchen sink too! Runners for hallways add a nice fall touch too.
Change out table linens for fall-inspired ones. A quilted table runner in autumn hues looks lovely on any dining table. Matching napkins, tablecloths and placemats will bring fall’s beauty to any meal.
Light the Way
Whether you choose to put a light, a candle or festive fall décor in them, lanterns are a beautiful way to accent the season. Arrange a trio of lanterns in multiple sizes near your foyer, or add LED candles to several to add light to your front porch.
Make a Big Welcome
Welcome guests in seasonal style with a welcome sign that celebrates the season. Have a little extra time? Try using stencils to add a welcome message to multiple pumpkins.
Glow With It
The flickering glow of candles always seems right this time of year. And it’s all the better when featured in fall’s color palette, like a trio of jar candles or in a fall tablescape for your dining table.
Add one of the best accents of all – fall baking!
