The crisp crunch of beautiful autumn leaves and the cooler temperatures tell the undeniable story that fall is in the air. Welcome the new season by bringing the warm colors of fall into your Signature homes with these beautiful and simple decorating tips.
Fall on the Wall and Mantel. A beautifully decorated mantel can make for a fun fall focal point in your room. Express your feelings for the season and decorate your fall mantel with gourds, pumpkins, dried flowers, fruit, leaf prints and other seasonal beauties. Adding fresh cut flowers is the quickest and easiest way to add life to any room, add cinnamon sticks or acorns in the vase with orange blooms to create an instant fall makeover. Create a beautiful matching wreath for your door or wall.
Add Fall Foliage to the Table. Bring the beauty of fall outdoors in with these DIY home projects using the season’s leaves and branches. You can use leaves and pine cones to make garland, wreaths and place cardholders. Reuse mini pumpkins and gourds by making them into mini tea light holders and fall succulent planters that will add a breath of fresh air to any table. Add nuts and fresh rosemary to form a table-length centerpiece. A mix of crystal glasses and wood cutting boards share a fusion of rustic style with refined elements.
Stock the Bar. Dig up your favorite fall drink recipes and gather the ingredients so you’re ready for last minute entertaining or a night in.
Layer Area Rugs. Swap summer rugs and layer existing ones. Layering area rugs is an easy way to add color and texture to your floors. Plus, the extra cushioning and warmth will ensure your feet avoid cold tile and hardwood floors during the fall and winter months.
Get Cozy on the Couch. Cozy up your living room sofas and chairs with plush throw pillows in different shapes, sizes and patterns. You can just buy the pillow cases and put them over the inserts you already have. Store them after fall for next year. Add a bright burnt orange colored throw blanket to your chair or couch. Comfy accessories add visual interest to your living room, plus they’ll emit a warm, inviting tone perfect for the season.
Comfortable Dining. Adding cushioned pillows to your dining table chairs will create a more comfortable feel for guests to linger long after holiday meals.
Light Up. With shorter days, you’ll want to add brighter lighting to your favorite spaces. Add corner table lamps and fall scented candles like pumpkin, cinnamon and spice around the house.
Stow the Summer Bedding. It’s time to swap out your summer quilts and bring back the heavy-duty down comforter and thermal blankets. A thick comforter will keep you warm at night while saving you money at the same time.
Create a Reading Corner. Gather cozy cushions and throws blankets in your favorite corner or nook. You’ll be thankful when you’re curled up with a glass of wine and good book.
Spice up the Soap. Switching out seasonal hand soaps and lotions for the kitchen and guest bathroom is a great way to add the scent of fall throughout your home.
Add Accents. Add a variety of wooden accents like bowls, trays, boxes, platters, etc. Wood brings a cozy fall feeling to a home.
Cozy Up the Patio. Restyle your outdoor space for chillier months by adding extra blankets. As summer transitions into fall, the weather becomes perfect for comfortable evenings outside. Outdoor space heaters are easy to find, use, and maintain. Fire pits are also a great way to stay warm and cozy.
