Fall is a popular season: cool, crisp days, vibrant colors, cozy sweaters, the excitement for the upcoming holiday season, and all things pumpkin spice. Fall is all about transition and change and it’s the perfect time to refresh your home.
After spending most of the year inside, you may be itching for a change. It may not be practical to redecorate your home every time the season changes, but even small changes can make a big impact. With a few key updates, you can quickly and easily transition your home for fall.
Take stock of your current home décor
Before heading out to the store, take stock of what you already have in your home. This serves two purposes: first, you can identify areas you can easily decorate or update, saving you time and money, and second, if you already have smaller décor pieces, you can find similar items in a seasonal theme.
Switch up your accessories
Remember those smaller décor pieces we just mentioned? Changing out these décor pieces with seasonally themed ones are a quick win when updating your home. Fill a bowl with seasonal fruit like apples or pears, add a handful of pumpkins or gourds, or add a fall wreath to the door.
Update textiles and linens
Another easy way to decorate for fall is by updating your linens. It can be as simple as adding table runners, pillows, or blankets in seasonal colors to changing out the curtains and adding a few new area rugs. These are a great way to add pops of color to your home.
Create a signature seasonal scent
Our sense of smell is powerful. A whiff of a certain scent can transport you to a long-forgotten memory. Use this season as an opportunity to fill your home with a signature scent. You can use a scented candle, store-bought potpourri, or create a stovetop potpourri by simmering orange peels, apples, cloves, cinnamon sticks to fill your home with the scent of autumn.
Soften your home with layers
Just like we layer up during the cooler months, you can quickly transition your home to fall through soft layers. Use blankets, pillows, and rugs to soften your home with a comforting texture.
Filling your home with these small touches and comforts will liven up your space for the new season.
