How to Decorate the Interior of Your Home for Fall

Fall Decore

As the intense heat of summer begins to sizzle out, the relief of the cooler autumn air is almost always welcomed with open arms. With a hint of briskness and steaming cups of pumpkin-flavored coffee, fall brings with it a cozy feeling that makes it a favorite season for many.

 

When it comes to fall décor, outdoor designs range from autumnal-colored wreaths and multi-colored gourds to scarecrows and jack-o-lanterns for those who like to get into the spirit of Halloween.

 

If you’re in love with this time of year or if you simply have a penchant for seasonal decorating, you most likely want your home’s interior to give off an autumn vibe as well. A few well-placed items are all you need for just a hint that fall has arrived. If you want to go all out with your seasonal home décor this year, there are certainly enough options to give literally every room in your house a floor-to-ceiling fall makeover.

 

For your consideration, we’ve compiled a list of 10 harvest/autumnal themed interior design ideas to get your creative genius stoked:
     

  • Fall centerpiece – Atop a portable tray, place a variety of colored gourds or pumpkins along with dried leaves and hydrangeas or other dried flowers.
  • Pillow swap – Switch out your everyday sofa pillows with some in the rich, vibrant colors we associate with fall like wine, orange, yellow and chocolate brown.
  • Fresh flowers – Fill up a large vase with flowers that bloom well into autumn. Sunflowers are one example that will usually stay looking fresh for 5 days or longer.
  • Exchange bedding – Lighter-weight bed linens that were great for warm summer nights can be washed and put away until spring. In their place, choose warmer linens in fall colors. You can also swap out your decorative shower curtain and towels for a set with an autumn theme or color scheme.
  • Layers aren’t just for clothing anymore – Tossing a luxurious throw over a cozy armchair with a matching pillow gives an instant feeling of warmth.
  • Think masculine – Springtime is associated with fresh, light pastel colors. In autumn, more masculine patterns like houndstooth, pin stripes, paisley, plaid or bold geometric shapes are where it’s at.
  • Create a warm welcome – To give visitors an instant fall feeling, place a large vase filled with artificial branches and flowers from your local craft store. Choose autumn colors like golden leaves, orange blooms and red berries.
  • Light a candle – The flickering of deeply scented candles lit throughout your home not only gives a feeling of warmth but will also spread the deliciously woodsy scent of the season from room to room.
  • Make a banner – An easy DIY project for any season: pick up chipboard letters spelling a seasonal message (Welcome Fall!) and twine from a craft store near you. Paint the letters a seasonally-appropriate color, and then attach them to the twine with a glue gun. Hang your homemade banner wherever your décor needs an extra boost.
  • Don’t forget the cornucopia – Also known as the ‘horn of plenty,’ the cornucopia symbolizes good fortune and seasonal bounty. Whether you make your own or buy one that is pre-made, a cornucopia as a centerpiece or on a sideboard table is an autumn décor must have.
