As fall approaches, your decor should subtly shift, too. But transitioning your space for the colder months can be tricky if you are unprepared.
While it can be tempting to consider ostentatious fall decor – plenty of pumpkins and various shades of orange – more curated fall decorating ideas will take your space from kitsch to cozy in moments.
Whether you choose home ideas with a warm color scheme, standout centerpiece or layers of texture and pattern, fall decorating is all about creating an inviting retreat for you and your family. And even though many fall decor ideas can be applied to other times of year, there is something remarkable about cozy additions that counteract the crisp, cold weather outside.
Lay Down A Rug
If you can only add one item to your fall decor ideas, an area room rug is an excellent choice.
One of the easiest ways to add color, warmth and texture to your room this fall is to introduce a versatile – and easily changeable – rug. More flexible than a carpet or other form of fixed floor-covering, rugs and runners offer a fantastic way to soften a hard stone, tiled or timber floor, and can also be layered onto soft floors to provide extra interest or to define zones. And, when it comes to style, it can add a whole layer of personality to any room, even in the kitchen.
Decorate With Subtle Variations of Brown
Brown living room ideas are wonderful for fall. This season sees a return to simple, restrained palettes – and being close to nature has moved from greens of the forest to a soft, neutral palette of fossil tones, raw materials and natural elements, such as stone, textures of cotton and linen with soft earthy browns, warm terracotta and clay putty tones as a contrast.
Dress Your Table for Seasonal Entertaining
If you’re hosting the Thanksgiving feast this year, you likely have a lot on your to-do list, and between carving the turkey and baking the pumpkin (or pecan) pie, setting the table should be high on your priority list.
If you are a traditionalist at heart, choose a selection of simple yet timeless decorations that you can use every year. A selection of glassware, foliage and candles should be enough to satisfy most of us.
Bring Fall Into Your Foyer
Picked from the garden patch or found in farm shops aplenty, pumpkins, gourds and squashes are a great starting point for creating a seasonal display in the hallway and beyond.
Often associated with Thanksgiving decorating and Halloween celebrations, the humble pumpkin is not just a kitchen staple at this time of year, it is also ideal to display in the home, especially on entrance. Pile them up on a console, sideboard or lone chair for an authentic fall welcome.
Hibernate in a Cozy Living Space
Cozy living room ideas are pretty much top of most people’s lists at the moment – for obvious reasons, when you consider that the most used space in a home is the living space. Living room fall decor should be functional and, above all, comfortable – particularly if all you crave is a soothing space to unwind in at the end of a busy day.
