Are you ready to decorate your home for fall? Celebrate the season with these wonderful fall decorating ideas, tips and inspiration.

HOW TO DECORATE FOR FALL

Decorating for fall is all about bringing the colors and warmth of the season into your home. Colors such as burgundy, rusty red, plum, aubergine, deep greens, mustard, and bronze are a nod to the changing colors outside.

Start by switching out summery throw pillows for ones with richer colors and more texture. Add throw blankets to your couch for family members to easily cozy up.

Adding candles with fall scents such as apple or pumpkin spice will instantly transform your home for the season, making it feel cozy and inviting, even if you’ve done minimal decorating.

WHEN SHOULD YOU START DECORATING FOR FALL?

September, once the temperatures start to cool down, is the perfect time to start decorating for fall. With kids back to school, the summer is officially over and it’s time to embrace a new season! Of course, some people like to get a head start in late August and others like to wait until the much cooler weather in October.

CHEAP AND AFFORDABLE WAYS TO DECORATE YOUR HOUSE FOR FALL

  • Bring the outdoors in – use branch clippings and greenery from your yard
  • Add layers and texture to your couch by switching out throw pillows and adding throw blankets
  • Fill a bowl with apples, mini pumpkins or another seasonal fruit or vegetable
  • Put fall scented candles in every room
  • Fill a dollar store hurricane vase with acorns from your yard
  • Use pinecones as decorative accents

FALL LIVING ROOM DECORATING IDEAS

Star with a color scheme for the autumn season. You can stick to traditional fall colors like burnt orange, amber and rusty reds or go the more non-traditional route with saturated blues, greens, and plums.

Add  touches of copper which mimic the colors of the season in a fun way.

Decorating for fall doesn’t have to mean completely redoing your decor. By simply switching out a few throw pillows and adding a few decorative touches to your mantel or coffee table, you’ll embrace the season without overwhelming your living room.

For mantel decor, layer in greenery or faux leaves with mini pumpkins (real or faux). Finally, add ambience with candles in your favorite fall scent.

FALL KITCHEN DECORATING IDEAS

Decorating your kitchen for fall can be as simple as adding some branches to a vase or seasonal fruit to a bowl. You can of course be more elaborate and switch out shelf decor for seasonally theme items, add in a fall-themed kitchen towel display copper canisters and scented candles.

ELEGANT FALL CENTERPIECES

Eucalyptus makes for an affordable, elegant yet simple base for a fall centerpiece. Simple drape it down the center of the table and alternate the placement of mini pumpkins along the sides.

If you are planning a fall soiree or need a beautiful centerpiece for your Thanksgiving dinner, creating your own flower arrangement inside a hallowed-out pumpkin always has the wow factor.

FALL DECORATING IDEAS FOR OUTSIDE

  • Use a variety of cinderella or heirloom pumpkins
  • Use chrysanthemums in a variety of sizes
  • Purchase containers from the dollar store to act as planter pots
  • Layer in mini candle holders with tealights
  • Scatter fallen maple leaves amongst the flowers and pumpkins

When decorating your front porch or front steps for the fall, chrysanthemums and pumpkins are always a winner.

Again, start by picking a color scheme. Use that as a starting point to purchase your mums and pumpkins.

You can use mini orange pumpkins, white pumpkins, plastic dollar store varieties painted to match your color theme or even the pretty fabric kind. But don’t stop there! Apples or pears (real or faux) look amazing as part of an elegant fall table setting, too!

Tablescapes are another place where you can layer in copper elements. Copper Moscow Mule mugs add the perfect punch of contrasting color to this otherwise monochromatic color scheme.

Make it a beautiful fall!
