Pumpkins ARE Fall
Ripe pumpkins are a sign that fall has arrived, so carved or not, you can use them as décor in and around your home. Place one or two on the kitchen counter and as a centerpiece on your dining room table. If you have a front porch, place a few there too.
For added elegance and charm, try using white pumpkins here and there. Remember, you can’t have too many pumpkins adorning your humble abode during the fall season.
Wish Visitors a Happy Fall
Greet your visitors with a “Happy Fall” by adding a fall wreath to your front door. Look for wreaths that feature leaves, pinecones, apples, pumpkins, and fall colors such as orange, brown, and yellow.
Hang the wreath on the outside of the door and add a little sign with a fall greeting on it. Your mail person, pizza delivery guy, and visitors will appreciate the sentiment.
Sprinkle a little bit of fall all around your home by adding a few decorative leaves to any hard surface. Place one or two leaves on bookshelves, countertops, end tables, and the like, and use bare branches to create interesting displays in the corner of a room or a vase atop your entertainment center. The idea is to bring the outdoors in, embracing all that fall entails.
Add a Touch of Fall Color
Fall colors invoke feelings of warmth and coziness, so be sure to add them to your home’s décor. Add shades of maroon, burnt orange, yellow, and brown in a variety of textures to give your space an autumn vibe. Toss a few fall-colored throw pillows on the couch or cover the back of your easy chair with a warm-hued blanket for the fall touch you’re craving. You may also wish to add some fresh-cut flowers like heliopsis, alstroemerias, or daisies, all of which give off that fall vibe.
If you don’t have to worry about small children or pets, burning candles is a great way to make your space look and feel cozier and more fall-like.
Look for candles in various sizes and shapes, and burn them all at the same time. The soft glow will add warmth to your space that’s lovely and inviting. For even more ambiance, try turning on dimly-lit lamps to flood your room with soft light.
Fall is a beautiful time of year. The cool weather and warm colors evoke feelings of togetherness, warmth, and coziness, which is why many people want the fall vibe in their homes. By following the easy tips above, you can transform your living space into a cozy haven of autumn warmth.
