Fall is just about here, and you want to update your house. So, we thought you would like some tips on how you can give your home a whole new look with the new season.
We will take you through different rooms and even give you some money saving tips if you are trying to decorate on a budget. So here are some things that you can do to help your home go from summer to fall in an easy and fun way.
Start With Your Door
Embrace nature’s colors when you give your home’s door a fall decoration. You can start out with something like a wreath made of dried foliage or harvest berries to the door. You can also celebrate different shades of red, purple, yellow, black, blue, green and orange that come with fall with a complete porch display. Arrange some white and green cabbage plants, magenta mums, and a variety of pumpkins in different colors on your porch’s steps or beside a green plant to create a welcome that everyone will love.
Choose Your Focal Point
Before going nuts with your indoor fall decorations, choose your focal point in the home for the wow area. You can choose a mantle, dining room or table in your foyer. You want to choose the place that has the most wow factor, whether you’re going to have a lot of people visiting your home or you plan to simply spend a lot of time with friends and family around your fireplace.
After you’ve chosen the best location, create a gorgeous autumn scene. Vary texture and color by using dried foliage and plants, gourds, acorns and pine-cones.
Consider your room’s scale and the surface. If you are using your dining room, the centerpiece should be spread across its length. If your mantle or foyer table is being used, tall twigs can be included. You can also allow the arrangement to drape down and around your mantle when you include a gorgeous autumn garland. Mix in some non-seasonal things you display throughout the year, such as framed pictures, family heirlooms or candlesticks so that the arrangement’s totally yours.
Put Some Small Arrangements Through Your House
For an approach that is more subtle, create some small fall decoration vignettes through your house. Acorns, candlesticks, and painted pumpkins put on a bookshelf with your books is a good option. Another good option is a vase full of fall colors alongside of miniature pine-cones in a bowl in your bathroom as a great way to add some fall touch to your home. Include some live plants with these groupings. They can either be houseplants or something that you have brought in from outside. Along with adding a wonderful look, a houseplant will clean your air too.
Add Some Extra Textures
Just like you would change out your t-shirts and capris for long pants and hoodies during the fall, you want to change your home’s texture. Fall’s a great time to switch out your summery throw pillows and replace them with wool, velvet, or mohair pillows. It’s also a good idea to put some additional throws around your house. If the palette’s right, use some full foliage for your accessories’ color inspiration. Another great way that you can make your home’s rooms more cozy is to put around some more throw pillows around the rooms.
Fill Up Glass Containers to Display
Vessels made of glass are great to use to display just about anything. You will be able to see the whole composition while you keep your parts organized. Fill jars, bowls, terrariums and vases with pine-cones, apples, miniature pumpkins, pears or acorns. Combine some different elements in the larger containers such as a terrarium and when you are using a smaller one, keep it monochromatic. You can use these by themselves, alongside of each other or along with an existing arrangement.
Include Some Autumn Smells
One of the biggest things that helps with retrieving and forming memories is smells. There’s a reason why pumpkin spice’s so popular. Wood burning in your fireplace and some cider bubbling on your kitchen stove can create a cozy and wonderful fall afternoon at home. When you are considering the way that you can decorate for the fall, you should consider scented candles, since they can be really inviting. Look for the scents that have earthy bases like musk and wood to create a wonderful fall infusion.
Don’t Forget the Table
Along with having the right centerpieces, you should also have place settings that are just for fall for informal and formal mealtimes. Layer napkins and place mats in jewel tones, and then contrast them with umber tumblers for an instant and gorgeous fall update when you are creating some fall decorations for your house.
Use Seasonal Produce as Décor
Fall is the perfect time for gourds, apples, pumpkins and more. When you are looking for a natural and functional way to decorate your table, putting out some seasonal fruits is a great way to do it. Not only will this make your table look great, but it also is going to encourage your family to eat healthy snacks.
Don’t Forget the Bathroom
One of the most commonly forgotten rooms when it comes to fall décor is the bathroom. So don’t make this mistake. There are so many things that you can do to give your bathroom a fall makeover, and they aren’t really that expensive since they usually functional as well as decorative. Here are some tips:
- Put a fall scented candle on the counter
- Use a bathmat and towels in autumn colors
- Get a new shower curtain for the fall
- Get decorative soaps in the shape of autumn leaves
- Have a sprig of cranberries on the counter-top
These are just a few of the things that you can do to help decorate your bathroom.
Use Some Scarves

You can grab them from our closet and use them to add some style and color to your rooms. Since they come in many different colors and textures, they give your room some eccentricity. Best thing is, when you want to wear your favorite scarf, it’s already out. If you don’t have a lot of scarves, you can always look at your local thrift store to see what they have to offer. You will never know what you can find there and for a great price.
