It’s already the middle of September which means it’s time for those bright candles and bamboo chairs to be switched out for fire pits and plush pillows. Here are some great ways to embrace the fall season by drinking pumpkin spice lattes and updating your home decor.
Curtains can be an eye catcher or a way to act like you care what your living room looks like. We go for the eye catcher! Patterned curtains are a fun way to bring extra color to a room and make it more interesting. If you want the classic fall look stick with the oranges, browns, and reds. If you’re wanting a more modern look, go with the slick grays and blacks. Maybe throw in a deep shade of purple.
Thanks to Pinterest, wreaths are sprouting up like weeds, only pretty, all over homes. A popular one is made of burlap bows and fall leaves. Turn your kitchen into a craft room and make a wreath for your bedroom with sunflowers, twigs and your initial with a wooden letter. If your family is really into football, make one out of your favorite teams’ colors. Nothing says fall like football season!
Walking into a candle shop is usually overwhelming and results in a headache. Avoid that feeling by buying the same scent instead of switching room to room or at least floor to floor. Some favorite fall scents are vanilla, pumpkin, pine cone, and apple spice. If you’re not wanting the clunky candle style, get some bronze and gold candle stick holders for that cozy medieval ages look.
Pumpkins are completely underrated because they’re typically only used during Halloween season instead of all fall long. Make your neighbors jealous by infusing your home with fun pumpkin designs. Hot glue gun some painted numbers onto stacked pumpkins on your front porch to use as your home address. Glitter a bunch of small ones and line the mantel with them to bring a little something more to your chimney.
Leaves and Flowers
Fall’s most recognized change is the color of the trees. So it only makes sense that you would bring those colors into your home with leaves and flowers. Dress up that dinner room table with an arrangement of dried leaves but make it over the top with twigs and long stemmed flowers. If you’re into the pumpkin ideas, try sticking flowers into it. Like a disco ball only with flowers and a pumpkin.
