Do you start craving pumpkin lattes before the last day of summer? Do you plan your weekend outings according to the best fall foliage? Are the cool late summer evenings making you pull out your hoodie collection in eager anticipation? Autumn lovers, your favorite time of year is almost here! Follow these decorating tips to get your home ready for fall.
Decorate for Fall
Decorating for fall doesn’t have to be a complex process. We recommend sticking with two main areas to update your space, without going overboard: the front door and your dining table. Set the mood for a fall transition at your front door with a festive wreath. Once inside the house, you can create an autumn mood with a new centerpiece at your dining table. A rustic vase or pitcher paired with a tray of fall foliage and small pumpkins or squash makes the perfect autumn statement, and looks especially great on a farmhouse table.
You can take the updates one step further by switching out some of your wall art with autumn themed prints. Look for rich colors and images showing trees, sunsets/sunrises or even the autumn sky.
Pillows and Throws
Switching out pillows and throws is an easy and low-cost way to update your room for the season. Choose warm colors, such as autumn reds, oranges, and yellows, and fall into your sofa surrounded by comfy new pillows and blankets—perfect for snuggling up in the cooler evenings.
Fire up the Fall Spirit
Shorter days and cool nights are a perfect fit for adding a little flame to your evening! Purchase some new fall candles in your favorite fall scent. Or update your living room or family room with an electric fireplace that will keep you warm and cozy well into the winter.
Just because it’s cooler, doesn’t mean it’s time to completely forsake outdoor living. There’s still plenty of time to enjoy cool evenings on your patio. Just grab your favorite hoodie and light a fire table to keep warm and toasty, and ready for a relaxing evening with friends and family.
With these gorgeous updates, you won’t be sad to bid farewell to summer and welcome fall into your home!
