Get Cozy

Get Cozy

At the beginning of fall, you should decorate for cooler weather even when it’s warm. This is because things are only going to get colder.

Get your fall pillows out of the attic, drape blankets on the couches, put rugs on the floors, and add some table cloths. Add a seasonal candle that smells like warm apple cider or fall nights. These cozy additions might look a bit out of place in September, but they’ll be welcome soon.

Plus, they’ll get you in the mood for a seasonal change so you don’t feel down when the temperature drops!

Pumpkins

Pumpkins

When adding pumpkins to your home, don’t just think jack-o-lantern. Pumpkins look beautiful simply as decor. Place large ones on your front porch, leading up to your door, or on your fall tablescape. For a perfect autumn pop of color, get faux pumpkins and paint them beige, rust, and yellow.

Switch Flowers For Foliage

Switch Flowers For Foliage

Everyone loves to decorate with nature in the fall. This season is all about the harvest, so our homes should be full of bountiful nature.

But autumn is also when living things wilt and prepare for winter, so opting for dried foliage like wheatgrass or cotton stems will still give your vases a natural touch. Adding dried grass or flowers with burgundy, orange, and yellow can help your house look perfect for fall.

Using dried foliage also gives you the opportunity to save it after the season is over and to re-use for next year!

Go Full Farmhouse

One of the best ways to decorate for the fall is to incorporate a farmhouse look.

Farmhouse design is all about soft neutrals, and cozy elements —it’s perfect for an autumn look!

Here are some tips on how to add a farmhouse look to your home:

  • Feature wooden furniture and highlight communal space
  • Contrast woods with soft whites (tablecloth, cabinets, etc)
  • Add splashes of color using nature (pumpkins and dried flowers)
  • Decorate with antiques and linens

Adding a little autumn to your home is sometimes all it takes to last all season. The key to decorating for the fall is not to go all out for any holiday or weather change. Incorporate your own love of the season into your décor and then let the décor change naturally as time passes—just like the fall.
