There’s no mistaking autumn. It’s one of the most striking and visually distinct seasons of the entire year. As the lush greens of summer give way to beautiful reds, yellows, and browns, autumn is Mother Nature’s time to do a little redecorating just before winter sets in. So, it’s no surprise that autumn is also one of the best seasons to bring some of that style and natural beauty indoors. If you’re ready for a change of scenery in your home, here are 3 fall décor ideas to help you embrace autumn.
Bring the Outdoors Indoors
Autumn brings beauty outdoors, so why not convey that look a little closer to home? In fact, a short walk in nature can give you all the inspiration (and materials) you need to decorate your home. Fill a tall glass vase with stunning red maple branches. Store some firewood next to a fireplace to increase the coziness. And decorate with pumpkins, gourds, pinecones, fall flowers, and wreaths to add a little spice to your home’s look this fall.
As the weather gets cooler outside, warm things up inside by swapping out lighter materials and colors with darker tones, fall shades, and heavier fabrics. From your bedrooms to your gathering spaces, changing just a few décor items can create a cozy feel and freshen up your entire home. Apply a fresh coat of pumpkin paint to a piece of furniture, add some autumn themed pillows to your couches and chairs, and layer your furniture with heavy and luxurious throws to add even more comfort to your home.
As trick-or-treaters and other guests get ready to stop by for a visit, fall is a great time to dress up your front porch in an inviting way. Pair fall flowers with seasonal pumpkins and gourds of all shapes and sizes on your porch. Or get creative and add seasonal lights, tasteful decorations, and a few festive pillows to a basic porch bench.
Autumn is finally here. It’s a season of change and one of the best times of the year to add a little extra spice to your home’s decor. So, no matter how you celebrate the changing of the seasons, celebrate in style.
