Simple, Stunning Ways to Spruce Up Your Space for the Season
After long weeks of lazy summer heat, these first crisp Autumn days tug our hearts toward home. The happy hum of the holidays is still weeks away, so now is the perfect time to savor the fun of early Fall as you begin sprucing up your nest for festive days ahead! Here are a few beautifully simple decorating ideas to warm up your home with the colors and textures of the season.
Let Nature Inspire You
This time of year, nature gives us nearly everything we need to create a stunning Fall display. Pumpkins, gourds, colorful foliage, and pinecones are all a great place to start. Try mixing these elements together across your fireplace mantel or staggering them artfully down your front steps. Miniature pumpkins make a fun wreath for your front door, while larger pumpkins paired with vivid Fall blooms can brighten your entry. Even a simple garland of pinecones can serve as a striking, rustic accent.
Pick a Palette You Love
Traditional Autumn décor incorporates the rich orange, gold, and rust hues borrowed from nature’s palette, but if that’s not your style don’t be afraid to mix things up! Try combining nature’s neutrals like cream, beige, grey, and green to create sophisticated home accents that can carry you all the way from tailgate season through Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Add Some Sparkle
Nothing complements your festive Fall home like the warm glow of firelight. Now is the time to make the most of your great room fireplace, or to lend some subtle sparkle to your décor with fairy lights, lanterns, or candles. Try adding some tealights to your Fall tablescape or adorn your front porch with a simple luminary. Candles with fun Fall scents like apple, pumpkin or cinnamon can add another delicious layer to your home’s Autumn ambience.
Inviting Spaces Bring Family Together
Nesting together at home is more important than ever these days, so I hope these simple ideas will inspire you to experiment with your own DIY Fall décor! It’s a fun and easy way to make your home a cozy, cheerful haven where your family can savor the season ahead.
