HOW TO DECORATE FOR FALL

Decorating for fall is all about bringing the colors and warmth of the season into your home. Colors such as burgundy, rusty red, plum, aubergine, deep greens, mustard and bronze are a nod to the changing colors outside.

Start by switching out summery throw pillows for ones with photos that represent this season. Add throw blankets to your couch for family members to easily cozy up.

Adding candles with fall scents such as apple or pumpkin spice will instantly transform your home for the season, making it feel cozy and inviting, even if you've done minimal decorating.

WHEN SHOULD YOU START DECORATING FOR FALL?

September, once the temperatures start to cool down, is the perfect time to start decorating for fall. With kids back to school, the summer is officially over and it's time to embrace a new season! Of course, some people like to get a head start in late August and others like to wait until the much cooler weather in October.

AFFORDABLE WAYS TO DECORATE YOUR HOUSE FOR FALL

  • Bring the outdoors in - use branch clippings and greenery from your yard.
  • Add layers and texture to your couch by switching out your photo pillow cases and adding throw blankets.
  • Fill a bowl with apples, mini pumpkins or another seasonal fruit or vegetable.
  • Put fall scented candles in every room
  • Fill a dollar store hurricane vase with acorns from your yard
  • Use pinecones as decorative accents
  • Print the photos that represent this season for you. Make it personal and adorable.

FALL DECORATING IDEAS

I like to start with a color scheme when I am decorating for the autumn season. You can stick to traditional fall colors like burnt orange, amber and rusty reds or go the more non-traditional route with saturated blues, greens and plums.

Decorating for fall doesn't have to mean completely redoing your decor. By simply switching out a few throw pillows and adding a few decorative touches to your mantel or coffee table, you'll embrace the season without overwhelming your living room.

Decorating your kitchen for fall can be as simple as adding some branches to a vase or seasonal fruit to a bowl. You can of course be more elaborate and switch out shelf decor for seasonally theme items, add in a fall-themed kitchen towel display copper canisters and scented candles.

I love decorating my dining room table for fall in preparation for the holidays to come. For Christmas, my dining table centerpiece is usually traditional but for fall and Thanksgiving, it can be fun to mix it up.
