As September comes to a close, autumn begins to make its dramatic and colorful entrance into the world around us. Suddenly, trees are changing colors, the evening air is becoming crisp and cool and pumpkins (or pumpkin spiced lattes) are popping up everywhere we turn.
If the start to the fall season has you inspired to bring the sounds, sights and scents of autumn indoors, now is the time to get down to fall decorating. You can easily transform your home into autumn-ready with just a few changes and design updates. Simply breaking out your favorite throw blankets and decorating in fall colors, like red, orange and gold, will have your home feeling like fall on the inside in no time!
Here are 5 easy ways to jump-start fall at home, so you can cozy up indoors and soak up the best of this beautiful season!
Break Out the Throw Blankets
Autumn brings it with it cooler temperatures that call for warm, snuggly blankets. Now is the time to unpack your fall and winter throw blankets and keep them handy for November nights spent cozied up on the couch.
Go Gaga for Gourds
Fall is the season for gorgeous gourds in all colors, shapes and sizes! Decorate your home with unique, brightly colored gourds in bowls, on trays or along window sills. They’ll add instant color and dimension to any room in your home, and have you feeling like fall in no time!
Sweaters, Scarves and Boots
It’s time to unpack your sweaters, scarves and boots and hang them neatly in your hall closet for easy grabbing on the go. You’ll love unpacking all of your favorite cool weather clothes from last season, and hanging your brightly colored scarves and sweaters will have you ready to cozy up and head outside for a brisk walk in the crisp, autumn air!
Pumpkin & Spice
Fall isn’t fall without a whole lot of pumpkin and spice! Gather up pumpkins in all shapes and sizes to decorate your front door or patio. Pick up cans of puree and begin baking your favorite seasonal delights, like pumpkin bread and muffins, apple spiced cakes and pumpkin pie!
Red, Orange & Gold
The easiest way to bring fall into your home is to start by adding splashes of fall colors into your living spaces. Pick up red and gold throw pillows, orange hand towels with pumpkins or leaves on them or even a seasonal quilt to lay across your bed. Your home will have an instant burst of seasonal color, and you’ll be feeling like fall right away!
