Summer is gone and the cooler days are just around the corner. It’s time to transform your home decor to match the season and dress your home for fall!
Take a look at these six fall decorating tips from Miskelly Furniture to transform your home from summer to autumn:
Add a Festive Front Door Wreath
A wreath with seasonal foliage is one of the best ways to get the exterior of your home ready for fall. Spruce up the wreath with the freshest-looking leaves, and try to mix up the colors to give it a beautiful, colorful variety.
Warm Up Your Deck or Patio
Decks and patios can sometimes be neglected if the humidity and mosquitoes are too much to bear. So as summer turns to fall, the weather is perfect for comfortable evenings outside. First, give your outdoor space a little cleaning if its needs it. Once it’s ready to go, gather fleece throws and pillows for extra comfort and add a trendy rug to keep your feet warm. Add mini pumpkins and fall foliage to the table.
Add New Accent Pillows to Your Living Room
When the colder weather grows near, friends and family will start spending more and more time indoors. Cozy up your living room sofas and chairs with a variety of plush throw pillows in different shapes, sizes and patterns. These comfortable accessories will not only change up your living room a bit, but will give the entire room a warmer tone.
Decorate a Fall-Inspired Mantel
Your mantel deserves a little love during other holidays leading up to Christmas. Give it some attention during fall! Turn your mantel into an autumn-inspired display by adding pumpkins, candles and leaves. Seeing your festive mantel everyday will make you love the season even more.
Pull Out the Matches
No, we don’t want you put anything on fire! We just suggest lighting up the candles. Since fall comes with cooler weather and shorter days, it’s a great time to put those candles to use. Take advantage of early nightfall and embrace the darkness by lighting scented candles around the house. The candlelit ambiance will give the room at inviting atmosphere and cozy feeling you may be looking for, along with a yummy scent.
Fill the Air with Fall Scents
While we’re on the subject of scents, did we mention that potpourri is an easy and attractive way to release fresh scents around your home? Collect dried natural materials, like cinnamon sticks, cloves, hazelnuts, orange slices and lavender, in a bowl and sprinkle with a few drops of oil to spread the scent through your home. Place a nicely arranged bowl of freshly-made potpourri in the most occupied rooms in the house.
