Though it may still technically be summer, autumn is around the corner. The fall season is a time for harvest and bounty and to create a cozy habitat for the long winter ahead. Give your home a warm and welcoming makeover for fall with a few simple touches and accents that exude an autumnal vibe.
Think ahead and plan to decorate your living space for fall:
Welcome autumnal guests. Greet guests at the door with boxes and bowls with autumnal theme accents. Display on a sofa table or shelf near your entry, and fill with pumpkins, gourds, and dried floral accents. Step outside your front-door and display a fall-themed garden flag for an inviting touch.
Bring a fall flavor to your door. While hanging your flag, check out your front-door and entry. Hang swags of dried flowers and greens or Indian corn and wreaths to beckon visitors and neighbors. Try crafting your own easy-to-make fall wreaths for the home or to share with family and friends; not feeling a DIY project? Simply buy a grapevine wreath at a crafting store and hang on your porch for fall flavor.
Warm-up your living space. Swap photos and pictures from summer with fall-themed mementos that capture past adventures, like apple-picking, vacations, or fall foliage.
Create a seasonal sofa. Add lots of snuggly, textured throws and pillows to warm up your sofa for the coming season. Choose colors such as browns, reds, and yellows for autumnal flavor that coordinates with most schemes and design themes.
Don’t wait to decorate for fall; start planning now! A few simple touches around the home can make a significant difference in the overall feeling and atmosphere of your living spaces. Use these tips to decorate your living room and sofa for fall, and to create a warm, inviting place for all who visit.
