Fall is officially here! It’s time for light jackets, pumpkin spice, and watching the leaves change color. It is also the perfect time to add a little flair to your home! To get you started, we’ve put together a list of some of the best ways to spruce up your home for the autumn months.
Start with Your Front Stoop or Porch
The oranges, reds, and yellows from the changing leaves are beautiful. Why not extend those colors to your home by dressing up your front stoop or porch? Adding garlands, pumpkins, and mums to the front of your house symbolizes hospitality. Don’t feel that you have to stick with normal Fall colors, though. Muted colors such as cotton or charcoal have become very popular over the past few years. These colors also add a sense of elegance and sophistication.
Create Foraged Displays
Decorating your home for the Fall doesn’t mean breaking the bank. Fortunately, there is so much to work with already. Forage for things like pinecones, leaves, branches, and other natural elements so that you can make your home an extension of the outdoors. Foraged elements can be used for centerpieces in the dining room and on side tables throughout the house. Visitors will take note of how special these charming additions are.
Introduce Plaid or Tartan Designs
Plaid and tartan patterns have become very popular when decorating for the Fall. The overlapping colors create a sense of coziness which invite friends or family members to relax in the space they are in. The most exciting thing about plaid and tartan patterns is that there are hundreds of options available so you can choose a design that speaks to your personality. You can also go with bold or neutral designs depending on the room. The choices are endless!
