Fall Décor Essentials

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating, Holidays

Fall is here, and it is time to start spending more time inside with your family. As the days grow shorter and colder, we tend to have much more time inside our homes than during summer. Making your home fall-ready is a fun way to celebrate the season. By adding some fall décor to your space, you can take pride in the change of the season and make your home feel more welcoming and inviting. Here are three easy décor ideas to add to your home this season:

Flannel Blankets

Flannel is a distinctive pattern associated with fall. You can add warm or cool tone flannel blankets to your home for a festive look. In fact, it can even be a great addition to swap out your summer sheets with flannel fall sheets. You can even get flannel throw pillows and blankets to add to your living room for a fall look.

Scented Candles

Nothing makes a home more inviting than a sweet aroma. Fall is full of many wonderful scents to add to your space. Look into apple cinnamon or pumpkin spice for festive scent. Plus, there are hundreds of other great scents to choose from that can make your home feel like an autumn oasis.

Seasonal Centerpiece

Make any table feel more seasonal by adding a festive centerpiece. Use holiday-influenced décor like cornucopias or jack o’ lanterns. You even can use a leaf display or candlelit mason jars. Adding a centerpiece can be more than just your dining room display. Consider adding centerpieces to your coffee tables or even over your fireplace mantel to make your room feel even more complete.

Place Mats

You can also make your table feel autumn-inspired by adding decorative placemats. These can be a seasonal addition that you put out each season. Look for placemat sets that are fall influenced, and add a plaid table runner as well to really make the atmosphere feel complete.

Decorating for the seasons is always fun and exciting. Be creative and explore different ways to make your home feel even warmer and more inviting this year. What are some of your favorite fall décor options? Let us know in the comment section, and for more tips and tricks, make sure to subscribe.

Decorating for Fall

Put away the white linen, beach towels and cool toned accessories. It’s fall and it’s time to breakout the corn husks, pine cones and other harvest decorations. Here are a few simple ideas:

Decorate a bookshelf with pressed leaves and pumpkins.

Hang a corn husk wreath.

Display green apples and acorns in apothecary jars.

Spray paint pumpkins silver and white. Make sure you use a variety of sizes. Display them on your mantle with pine cones. This is a very elegant look.

Decorate your dining room table by placing a row of pumpkins and gourds. Add a tall vase filled with wheat.

Fill your votive candle holders with pumpkin or squash seeds.

Make leaves out of decorative scrapbook paper. Glue them to branches for a whimsical look. Display the branches in tall glass vases.

Fill an old tool box with candles, clementines and pine cones.

Hollow out gourds and use them as vases for fall flowers.

Put single leaves, either pressed or fresh, in small glass vases or use old lab beakers — look for them at antique stores. Replace leaves as they brown.

Put together a colorful outdoor fall display using a sturdy wheelbarrow as a base. Fill the wheelbarrow with ornamental cabbage and peppers, grasses, chrysanthemums, flowering zucchini and other seasonal plants. Fill the wheelbarrow with soil and insert the plants loosely, or tuck containers into the wheelbarrow, making sure to fill in the gaps with more plants.

Nuts are as easy to decorate with as they are good to eat. Anchor a candle inside a hurricane lamp. Experiment with different varieties of nuts and a selection of clear containers.

Nestle a candle in popcorn kernels or other seasonal materials such as candy corn or colored clear round stones.

Don’t forget to break out the rich, warm colored throw rugs, pillows and rugs. Light a fire, pour a glass of wine and enjoy autumn.
