With the right combination of furniture and décor, you can really embrace the fall season and take it all in until the winter comes around. If you’re stumped for ways to use your interior design scheme to make your home feel autumnal, though, continue reading for some helpful tips.
Start with the Front Door
The front door is the first thing you and your guests see, so it’s the perfect place to start with some décor for autumn. A leaf-filled wreath that displays all of the vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow that are seen on the falling leaves throughout your neighborhood is an easy, fast, and affordable way to welcome the season. And if you have the room, add some white and orange pumpkins, various colorful gourds, and perhaps even a hay bale to really complete the look.
Updating Your Furniture
You’re certainly not going to throw out all of your furniture and buy new pieces just because autumn is here—unless you want to, in which case you can find great deals on modern furniture at sites like unicheinteriorfurnishings.co.uk. But you can redecorate your furniture to make it look more autumnal.
Add cosy throws to your sofa or your bed, opting for the colors of autumn and warm hues that will invite you to snuggle in as the weather outside gets cooler. Add silk leaves to your bookshelves, or purchase a string of silk leaves and add them to your fireplace mantel.
If you do want to actually purchase and add new furniture to your space, stick with vintage pieces that are affordable and add a unique touch to any room. You can go with a simple armchair, for example, or even a hallway table or end table in the living room.
Throwing in Elements of the Fall
There are plenty of ways to decorate for the fall throughout your home. You can, for example, create a simple centerpiece on your kitchen table using pine cones, silk leaves, flowers in vases, and candles.
In the bedroom, you can simply update the colour of the sheets and/or comforter that you use on your bed. You may be transitioning, for example, from the bright blue color of summer to a warm orange hue for fall.
Even in the bathroom, you can add decorative vases filled with candles that you can light as you relax your stress away in the bath. Or you can incorporate fragrant potpourri that comes in the shape of pine cones, small silk leaves, and tiny pumpkins.
You can even go a step further and replace some of your window treatments if it isn’t too much trouble. Add sheer curtains in vibrant hues like yellow, which not only bring in the colors of the leaves outside, but also add some much-needed brightness as the days get shorter. Sheer is also a great way to let plenty of sunlight in.
Enjoy the Season While It Lasts
Remember that fall is a unique season that doesn’t seem to last as long as it should, so take every opportunity to decorate your home to welcome it and enjoy it.
