With fall swiftly approaching, it’s time to bust out your storage containers and see what seasonal decor is waiting to be dusted off and put to use again. If you’re in need of an upgrade, don’t fret! Here are ten simple and sophisticated ways to decorate your home for the autumn season ahead.
Set The Tone On The Front Porch
The classic pumpkin-lined porch will always be in style, so take a trip to the pumpkin patch or local market for an instant upgrade. Add a bristle door mat to give your home an extra inviting touch.
Line Tin Flower Pots Alongside Your Pumpkins
Metal flower pots instantly give your front porch a more rustic, autumnal aesthetic. Try florals that you might not ordinarily consider in colours like orange and pink, with interesting textures.
Use Wheat For A Naturally Textured Wreath
Since your front door is the first thing people see, it’s a good idea to ditch that overly colourful, pre-made seasonal wreath you might have hanging around in your attic. Instead, stick with natural materials, like wheatgrass.
Incorporate Hints Of Pink And Purple
Traditionally, autumnal colours consist of burnt oranges, deep maroons, and different variations of bronzes—but there are plenty of other colour schemes to consider as well that will set your home apart from the rest.
Set The Mood At The Table
Swap out your all-white chargers for warm metallics instead. Add a mini white pumpkin for a seasonal touch, and rather than traditional place cards, try writing your guests names on greenery in gold lettering.
Adorn Your Mantle With Fall Foliage
Who says a mantle can only be dressed with garland during the winter season? Carry those metallic tones from the dinner table all the way into your living room by adorning the top of your fireplace. Be sure to mix in other materials, like fall foliage or candleholders, for a well-rounded look. Include matte finished items to balance out the shinier elements.
Incorporate Pops Of Autumn Colour Through Everyday Accessories
Don’t feel like you have to buy season-specific decor in order to bring hints of fall into your home. Everyday accessories and useful storage baskets can add a surprising amount of seasonal spirit to your abode. Try hanging your most on-theme totes from hooks and leave a woven basket by your front door to stash scarves, hats, and sweaters in.
Change Up Your Throw Pillows
Another way to create that cozy fall feeling is by simply swapping out your throw pillows. Using standard size throw pillows means you can easily switch out the pillow cases. This minimizes the need for storage and makes a seasonal transition quick and easy.
Make Your Own Wheat Bouquet
The versatility of this plant makes it such a practical and low-maintenance option. In addition to flowers, you can also add texture with different vases. Choose a plain white pitcher with a subtle pattern for year-round use, and if you opt for a wheat wreath, this bouquet will tie in perfectly with your front door.
Liven Up Your Outdoor Space
Don’t leave your backyard out of the fun. Potted plants look great any time of the year, but if you fill them with autumn coloured blooms, they’ll surely make a statement during an outdoor soiree.
