Easy Fall Home Decorating Tips You’ll Use

Now that we’re spending more time at home, the start of the season is the perfect opportunity to cozy up your space. The good news: you don’t need a lot of time or money for fall home decorating. Splashes of color and simple accessories can go a long way.

Refresh Your Mantel

Begin by updating areas where your family, roommates or guests will gather most—like in front of a cozy fire. Pick a color scheme and stick to it. If you’re not sure where to begin, let an impactful piece inspire your palette. For a neutral backdrop, hang a repurposed window, framed chalkboard, mirror or natural wreath in the center. Display cotton stems or wheat stalks in vases. Complete the look by scattering small decorative items or objects of varying heights to create visual interest. Don’t have a fireplace? Style a console table or floating shelf for a fall-worthy focal point.

Introduce Natural Elements

Fill a statement bowl with pinecones, gourds or acorns for rustic flair. Scatter a few mini pumpkins around a candlestick display, or hollow out a large white pumpkin and add autumnal blooms for a striking centerpiece. Arrange winter squash or freshly picked apples in a basket on your kitchen countertop. Display Indian corn, crabapple branches, oak leaf stems or foraged branches from your backyard as an easy way to bring nature indoors. 

Incorporate Prints in Autumn Hues

Use patterns and prints to quickly transform the flavor of any room. Swap out summery accent rugs, runners, dining-chair cushions, tablecloths and guest towels with fall favorites. Look for large plaids and stripes and warm seasonal motifs. Soft textiles in rich hues give an instant autumnal vibe and make your space more inviting. Get inspired by nature’s color palette including orange, crimson, brown, green and marigold.

Pile on Pillows and Throws

Give your rooms a fast and inexpensive update by draping chunky knit throws over couches and accent chairs. Or display them in a basket for easy access on comfy nights in front of the fire or television. Swap out linen throw pillows for woven ones in warm, earthy tones and place them on seating and beds. Faux fur adds an ultra-luxe look that works well into winter. If your storage is limited, buy standard-sized throw pillows that can be easily refreshed with decorative pillowcases each season. 

Cozy up Your Bedroom

Swap out summer bedding with a down comforter for extra warmth and replace cotton sheets with flannel ones. Lay an autumn-inspired throw blanket at the foot of your bed. Placing a plush accent rug or runner near the bed makes it easier to rise and shine on chilly mornings. Trade in your tired everyday candles, diffusers and essential oils for ones with scents like cedarwood, apple cinnamon, pumpkin spice and pomegranate for autumnal appeal.

Now that your home is set for the season, make sure you have adequate limits on your homeowners, condo or renters insurance.
