Fall is a gorgeous time of year when the temperature cools and the leaves turn from green to vibrant shades of red, yellow and orange. There are lots of ways you can bring the majesty of the season into your home.
Flowers are always a must when decorating for any season. Choose flowers that reflect the season such as mums, calendula and sunflowers. Colors like red, orange and yellow are a must, although darker shades can look fantastic also. You can adorn your home with fresh flowers, or choose a long-lasting silk bouquet. Try adding sprays of autumn leaves to your arrangements for a rustic, seasonal look. In fall, you can move away from delicate vases and towards more robust containers like barrels and baskets. Go for wood and brass for an earthy look.
Not only can flowers make the inside of your home look great, they can also improve the exterior. Fill your garden with fall-blooming flowers like begonia, sunflower, aster and chrysanthemum on this thanksgiving 2018. A fall-themed garden flag can also add a nice touch to your exterior space. Try a wreath crafted from rustic materials and autumn leaves for your front door.
To update your furnishings, why not try some new throw pillows and window treatments in rich fall colors like rust, burgundy, or gold. With a neutral sofa, you can easily change the look of a room by adding various accessories. A new area rug with a fall flair can add warmth and beauty to any room. And don’t forget the little things! Some votive candles in gorgeous fall colors can bring a classic look to any room.
Wall hangings are a great idea, as well. Try framed prints that reflect your idea of fall. Gorgeous autumn landscapes look beautiful and add warmth and interest to even the starkest white walls. Let your taste be your guide, but try to reflect some of the beauty of the season in the art you choose.
Another good idea is to make use of the bounty of the season. Try filling a basket with miniature pumpkins or interesting gourds and using it as a centerpiece. Or, fill a bowl with water and add colored floating candles in autumn shades, accented with a few faux fall leaves that will gently lay on the surface.
There are many more fall decorating ideas that you can try. Go with a holiday theme and deck your home out in Halloween or Thanksgiving decorations.
