Fresh Fall Decor Ideas

Autumn is our absolute favorite season for decorating, with colorful plaids, quirky gourds, fall flowers and seasonal centerpieces that make us feel cozy and bright. Fall decorating is also inexpensive, easy to do and can easily bring the brightly changing colors outside inside with a little creativity and imagination.

Sweater season means it is more than appropriate to start breaking out your favorite plaid pillow covers, potted mums and seasonal centerpieces. If you’re ready to bring the fresh feel of fall outside to the interior of your home, we’ve created a list of our simplest ways to do it, and it won’t break your budget or your spirit!

As the seasons change, switch up your apartment decor to give it the charming, cozy feel this beautiful season seems to inspire. Break out your scarves and boots and pack up your beachy themed hand towels. Fall is here, and its time to show it!

Seasonal Centerpiece
Creating a beautiful, stylish fall centerpiece is truly a cinch, especially when you use simple ingredients like small pumpkins, colorful gourds or sparkling pine cones. An easy way to draw attention to the center of your table is to place a variety of pumpkins and gourds on a glass bowl, plate or tray, and let the beauty of nature speak for itself. We also love a glass bowl filled with cinnamon scented pine cones for a cozy and charming effect.

Brighten Up Your Bathroom
Bathrooms can get left out when doing seasonal decorating, so this year, give the bathrooms in your home extra love. It’s easy to brighten up the smallest room in your apartment with a small glass bowl of mums or ranunculus, but you can also place a small dish of colorful gourds or some pumpkin-scented oils or a diffuser for ultimate sensory delight.

Gourds Galore
We can’t get enough of gourds and pumpkins in autumn, and they’re definitely our favorite way to decorate. Gourds are inexpensive, colorful, uniquely shaped and creatively made from the earth. Can they be more autumn appropriate? We love to use them as centerpieces, front door decor, side table accents or even along your mantel. More is always better when it comes to gourds (if you ask us, anyway)!

Plaid, Plaid Everywhere
‘Tis the season to break out your favorite tartan colored blankets, pillow covers, sheets, table cloths, napkins, place mats and more! Plaid is undeniably an autumn pattern, and we love to see it used in homes as dining room table cloths, throw pillows and blankets and tableware.

Fall in Love With Fall Flowers
Autumn isn’t just about pumpkins, gourds and falling leaves. It’s also a season filled with gorgeous, brightly colored flowers that can easily brighten up just about any home with the feel of fall. Pick up a few mums in planters to place beside your front door. Clip some mums and place them in vases in your home, and beside your bedroom table, side tables and dining table. Ranunculus, pansies, black-eyed susans, flowering kale and dianthus are just a few of our favorite fall flowers, and all make for beautiful container gardening or as centerpieces inside your home.
