With cooling temperatures and leaves falling everywhere you look, fall represents change and is the perfect opportunity to give your home a fresh update. From introducing soft lighting to dressing your furniture in all things cozy, there’s so much you can do to pumpkin spice your home this fall. Take inspiration from these tips on how to make the transition:
Add Seasonal Scents
One of the simplest ways to jump into fall (without having to do a complete revamp) is to add seasonal scents. Look to classic fall aromas such as cinnamon, pumpkin, gingerbread, spiced apple or vanilla. Infuse your home with scented candles, air fresheners or potpourri. If you love to cook, make a few of your favorite fall recipes such as pumpkin bread, apple pie or basically anything with cinnamon. Nothing smells better than the real thing!
Introduce Soft Lighting
Our days are getting shorter, causing less natural light to stream through our windows. To make up for this loss of light and help create cozy fall vibes, try adding small lamps or accent lighting throughout your home. This Stacked Gold Floor Lamp is a sophisticated choice that provides a lovely ambience in your living space or dining room. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party with friends or settling down for the night with a good book, this exquisite Bergolo Floor Lamp is an ideal choice for providing an extra blast of light and elegance to your space.
From Netflix binge sessions to lazy Sunday afternoons on the couch, what’s fall without the perfect cozy blanket? Drape your sofa with a cozy throw and pillows piled high. In your bedroom, try switching out your cool cotton sheets for a set of classic plaid flannel sheets. They’ll surely keep you warm on cooler nights! Finally, a big trend this fall is patterned and textured bedding. Dress your bed with your favorite patterned duvet, quilt or blanket and accessorize with rich textures to make your bedroom a warm and stylish sanctuary you can look forward to coming home to in the evening.
Shift to Fall Colors
Rustic fall tones of orange, brown, olive green, mustard and deep cranberry can be beautiful options for wall décor and accent pieces during the fall months. Shift your color scheme away from bright summer shades to these fall colors. Consider renting this cozy velvet Jaden Chair to add a polished look of sophistication to any space. Make it feel extra-seasonal with a faux fur throw blanket and ethnic print throw pillow. For your home office or entrance hallway, this rustic brown and white Duke Area Rug is an excellent choice that combines wild charm and sophistication. Or, a textured rug like this ultra-soft wool Magenta Rose Rug will infuse your space with a burst of beautiful color.
Choose Fall Accessories
Warm up your home with your favorite fall accessories. These can be DIY creations, nature-inspired pieces, or one-of-a-kind accessories that hold a special meaning to you. Look for natural wooden accent pieces you love. Or, for a low budget option, find woodsy elements at your local farmer’s market like moss, small branches or grasses. Then use them to create beautiful fall-themed centerpieces. Set an inviting tone by accessorizing your front door with a classic fall wreath complete with leaves, pumpkins and berries. Add a splash of orange indoors or outdoors with decorative pumpkins and bright orange throw pillows.
