Fall is in full swing, and it’s time to start decorating your home with all the trimmings. Yellows, oranges, reds and purples bring warmth and coziness to a home. As you begin, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite autumn decorating ideas.

Use Foliage from Your Neighborhood

Fall foliage has long been a staple for decorating around this time of the year. Think about how you can make amazing decorations from foliage in your neighborhood. The leaves have started turning colors, so plan now by purchasing any needed supplies to preserve your leaves. You can turn them into gorgeous wreaths or garlands to decorate both the inside and outside of your home.

Candles, Candles, and More Candles

There is no better way to bring warmth into your home than with candles. There are hundreds of ways you can make candles a part of your decorating strategy. From votives to centerpieces, candles fill your home with relaxing scents and an ambiance perfect for chilly evenings. Think outside the box and use things from around your neighborhood such as acorns, pinecones, berries and branches to bring a candle to life. If you choose to create a natural scene, remember it’s important to keep items away from the open flame.

Don’t Forget the Mantel

The mantel is a home’s focal point – especially the closer we get to the holidays. It’s a focal point for Fall decorations as well. The way you decorate your mantel should express your personal design preferences. Whether cozy, simple, plaid, or metallic, the options are endless. Make sure that your mantel design compliments your entire fall decorating strategy. You will want family members and guests to pass seamlessly through your home and immediately feel the atmosphere you are trying to create.
