Fall is one of our favourite seasons for a good reason – the cooler weather offers a bit of relief from the heat of the summer, and only hints at what’s in-store for the winter ahead. The leaves change in a vibrant display of bright colours, and our favourite spicy flavours once again start taking over menus.
Though the humidity is still high, the littlest touches of autumn have started popping up in shop windows, and there’s no better time than the present to start thinking about your own fall decor. Whether you keep it simple or go all out, consider these decorating tips to get your home cozy for fall.
Incorporate Textiles & Textures
Once the air turns chilly, a home full of texture and comfortable textiles is just so inviting. Lots of chunky throw blankets are perfect for wrapping up in on chilly nights. Draped across furniture or displayed on a ladder, these comfy blankets will be close at hand when you need to reach for one. A couch full of pillows is always cozy and inviting. Think the colours of the season – orange, yellow, red, and brown – piled on the sofa or bed, reminiscent of a pile of leaves. Don’t you just want to jump in?
Textures are another great way to upgrade your fall decorating, try furry pillows, chunky wool blankets and the like.
Display Your Mugs
When it gets cold out, one of the best things to reach for is a mug of hot tea or cocoa – it warms the soul! Why not put your favourite, beautiful mugs on display for all to see. Plus, there’s nothing wrong with easy access.
One of the easiest ways to decorate for fall is with autumn art and foliage. There are countless options for ornaments you can pick up from your favourite design stores or to DIY, like wreaths, signage, and crafts.
Fall themed tableware in the fiery colours of fall dress up any table. You can even re-curate your walls with fall-themed art and photography.
A great way to add colour and interest is by incorporating natural elements into your fall design. Autumn vegetables like pumpkins and gourds are décor mainstays, but you can make them unique with a little crafting know-how. How about a chalkboard pumpkin that welcomes folks into your home with a happy message, or a glitter accented gourd for your holiday table?
Create beautiful floral arrangements that feature all the colours of the season, like bright yellow sunflowers and dramatic purple flowering cabbage, and hearty green succulents that can withstand even the most amateur gardener’s efforts. Don’t forget to fill your home with the spicy scents of the season with scented candles or one of our favourite fall fragrances by Lampe Berger.
