Some Ways to Welcome Fall in your Home
Bring the Beauty of Fall Indoors
As we say goodbye to Summer, the drop in temperature tends to drive our activities indoors. Fun filled picnics and barbecues turn into gathering friends and family around the fireplace and dining room table. Visions of bonfires and cookouts gradually phase to Halloween parties and Thanksgiving dinners. As our activities move indoors, here are a few simple decorating tips you can use to turn your home into a warming environment that welcomes Fall with open arms!
Fall comes with a great range of beautiful items found in nature that can be perfect for creating a warming environment in your home. For example, placing an arrangement of decorative gourds and pumpkins on a mantle or along a dining room table runner is an inexpensive, yet elegant way to prepare your home for Autumn. You could also create a centerpiece themed around fresh or dried Autumn plants. Another stylish idea is to hang a Fall-themed wreath on your door. You could even create your own wreath, with touches of acorns, dried leaves, pinecones and more elements you can find in your backyard! Check out some of these DIY Fall Wreaths.
Cozy up Your Living Room
Fall means it’s time to break out the thick, cozy blankets. Rather than stuff them in a closet, why not display some your Fall-colored blankets? Rolling up blankets and displaying them in a wicker basket, or stacking a few on a bench can help to create a warm, relaxing environment this Fall. Add a few throw pillows to your sofa. Utilize the warming, natural deep Autumn hues of orange, red, and brown to accentuate your living room furniture.
