Fall decorating is all about adding warmth, creating an inviting space, and of course, expressing your own style.
THE SHADES OF FALL:
The secret to tastefully decorating for fall is using colors and items already found in nature. Think: earth tones and natural materials like pinecones, wheat, wicker, and greenery.
A fool-proof fall decor tip: Decorate your entryway for fall with a wheat wreath, or two. And line your porch steps with pumpkins. Your guests will be greeted by an array of inviting autumn shades and warmth.
When in doubt, layer pumpkins. An assortment of pumpkins in a range of hues is a failsafe way to transition your home for the fall season. Place them on your kitchen island, bookshelf, or a coffee table for a fun and festive look.
Fall florals, foliage, and dried greenery can also instantly transform a corner inside your home. A blend of deep burgundy flowers and autumn foliage in earthy hues makes the perfect addition to any fall decor.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE ACCENTS, BUT KEEP IT SIMPLE
Properly layering pillows, throws, and textures is a fall decor trick all of which can be updated from season to season. Start with a base of neutral throw pillows and add one or two patterned styles of blankets or pillows in warm hues that embody the season. Textures like fur and wool add a seasonally appropriate touch.
Look for items that inspire that create a home feeling. Use candles to create a warm glow and beautiful atmosphere. Add styling touches like bowls filled with fall fruits or vegetables, this can also visually communicate the change in season.
Some fall-colored blooms, pinecones, and candles can be used for a great mantel decor. Drape some natural and seasonal garlands, like cotton branches, along the mantle to really make your space feel festive.
Set up a drink station on the counter or on a bar cart with hot beverages. Copper mugs and vintage glassware look particularly celebratory. Focus on a few key areas where your family and friends tend to gather, this will make your home feel welcoming and warm in the cooler days ahead.
