As the leaves start to change color and the air gets a little crisper, it's time to start thinking about updating your home décor for fall. Whether you want to give your space a complete makeover or just want to add a few seasonal touches, these five tips will help you achieve the perfect fall look for your home.
1. Bring in nature.
One of the best things about fall is all the beautiful colors that come with it. Incorporate those colors into your home by adding some fresh flowers or plants, using colorful throw blankets or pillows, or hanging artwork that features autumnal scenes. Did anyone say, "Pampas Grass"!
2. Cozy it up.
There's nothing better than curling up on the couch with a blanket and a good book when the weather gets colder. Make your space extra cozy this fall by adding fuzzy blankets and pillows, arranging furniture so everyone can snuggle up together, and adding some scented candles to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
3. Create a focal point.
A fireplace is the perfect place to focus your fall decorating efforts. Adorn your mantel with garlands of leaves, pumpkins, gourds, and berries, and use candleholders and vases of different heights and sizes to add interest. If you don't have a fireplace, any other area in your home that could use a little sprucing up will do—a bare wall, an empty shelf, or even the space above your kitchen cabinets are all great places to showcase your fall décor.
4. Go for comfort.
When it comes to fabrics in your home, think cozy rather than formal this fall. Opt for plush chenille over stiff linen, soft cotton instead of scratchy wool, and velvety velvet in place of shiny satin. Not only will these fabrics feel better on your skin as the temperatures start to drop—they'll also make your entire space feel more comfortable and inviting.
5. Incorporate warm tones.
One easy way to update your home décor for fall is to simply switch out your light bulbs for ones with warmer tones—around 2700K is ideal. You can also add warmth to your space by creating an accent wall in a rich hue. Peel and Stick Wallpaper is a great addition here. Choose one with a in a base color that complements your existing palette but has a little more depth to it than what you're used to seeing during the warmer months.
With these five easy tips, you can give your home décor an update that perfectly reflects the changing seasons—without breaking the bank or having to start from scratch. So get out there and start shopping for cozy throws, beautiful autumnal arrangements, and warm-toned light bulbs—your perfect fall home is waiting!
