Nothing rivals the magnificence of autumn’s beauty – harvest time, the turning leaves floating through the air to blanket the ground in a cloud of crimson, orange, yellow, and gold, and the radiance of the last sunny, clear-blue days of the year before winter moves in. With these autumn decorating tips, you can bring the splendor of the season into your home with decorations, fall flowers, and a recipe for coziness.
For a festive autumn feel in your home, you will want to create an inviting transition from the outdoors to your front steps. Create a seasonal entrance by adorning the front porch with a wreath of sunflowers, baskets of mums, and pumpkins. The bright colors of these seasonal items will prepare your guests for the visual treat they will enjoy upon entering your home.
Be sure to take advantage of autumn’s lovely colors by bringing them into your home. To create a festive feeling, you do not have to do anything drastic like painting your walls or completely redecorating. Simply switch out small, easily changeable items like throw pillows and blankets, rugs, towels, placemats, napkins, and tablecloths for items in shades of yellow, orange, red, gold, and purple. You can also enhance the visual decor of your home by incorporating fall flowers with stunning centerpiece arrangements featuring blooms in seasonal colors. In addition to an eye-catching centerpiece, placing accents around your home with fall flowers also creates a warm, autumn atmosphere. After you have colored your home autumn, complete the look by incorporating festive items like ceramic pumpkins and scarecrows. You can also fill a wicker cornucopia with decorative corn or freshly picked apples.
No home’s decor is complete without an aroma to complement the atmosphere. Create a festive scent that will make you want to curl up on the sofa with a good book and a cup of cider by boiling cinnamon sticks, clove, and lemon or orange peel in water on top of the stove. The boiling spices will fill your home with a cozy scent appropriate for the cooler weather of fall.
