Fall is a favorite season for many, and one that gets people excited to cozy up in preparation for the colder months ahead. Autumn boasts warm colors and smells of pumpkin spice and apples. If you’re looking to add some fall decor to your home this year, here’s some ideas.
Farmhouse Textures are Perfect for Fall
There’s something about rustic barn wood that brings to mind the harvest season. Fortunately, it’s still very on trend and you can find lots of farmhouse decor, from authentic handcrafted items to look-a-likes. Think candle boxes for your dining table or mantle and a cozy plaid throw blanket for the couch.
Nothing says autumn like pumpkins. But decorating with this fall staple doesn’t need to revolve around the orange, round product we know and love. Get whimsical with it. There are many unique varieties of pumpkin that can add color and texture to your decor. You can use real pumpkins or fake, large or small. You can get creative by painting pumpkins white to go with modern decor. You can use pumpkins and gourds to decorate coffee tables, mantelpieces, bookshelves, guest bathrooms, and kitchens. You can accent them by pairing with fall plants and flowers to give a dose of autumn color.
Welcome People with a Wreath
Before people even step foot inside your door, welcome them to your cozy home with a wreath fit for fall. A natural-looking wreath with twigs and fall leaves is the perfect way to greet your guests. Or if painted wood cutouts are your thing, perhaps a fall leaf or round pumpkin with hand lettering.
Take a Trip Through Nature
You don’t have to run off to the home decor store to get your home decorated for fall. You can create a wonderful fall look by just stepping outside. Collect leaves to place on decorative trays or inside clear vases and sprinkle along the top of the mantle. Gather a bunch of wild flowers. Take a trip to your local pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins of different shapes, sizes, and colors. You don’t have to spend a lot to get your home feeling fall festive.
Fall brings to mind the feeling of togetherness and thankfulness. As many of us have spent more times in our homes this year than in years past, decorating your home to bring feelings of comfort is a simple way to bring joy to you and your family. You don’t have to go over the top with decorations; a few items will go a long way to bring the fall indoors.
