7 Tips and Tricks for Decorating Your Home for Fall

Summer is winding down, which means fall is on its way! It’s time for cooler weather, pumpkins everywhere, bonfires, and everything else that gets people excited for the colder weather. If you’re as thrilled about autumn as we are, then fall decorating is definitely on the forefront of your mind. We’ve laid out a few tips for decorating your home for fall for people in need of new ways to bring their favorite autumnal décor to life. You won’t regret the way these ideas create a warm and welcoming home for you and your loved ones.

Fall Decorating Tips and Tricks

1. Add Autumnal Throw Pillows and Blankets

A simple and cozy way to bring autumn into your house is to swap out your throw pillows and blankets. Bring a pop of color to your living or family room with warm colors such as burgundy or a deep orange. If you don’t have much room for storage, choose standard-sized throw pillows and get various pillowcases that you can swap out each season. You could even create a quilt with some awesome autumnal fabric so that you can get in some quality crafting time with the family.

2. Switch Up Your Welcome Mat

Another simple tip for decorating your home for fall is changing out your welcome mat. There are so many cute varieties that will liven up your steps and create a welcoming atmosphere right off the bat. We recommend bristle door mats with patterned mats underneath to give an extra-inviting touch.

3. Utilize Natural Textures

Wreaths are another tried-and-true way to bring some beautiful fall decoration to your home. Make sure those wreaths are brimming with natural elements such as wheat, which adds a natural texture that is quintessentially fall. Not to mention, overly colorful, pre-made wreaths don’t have nearly as much character as homemade ones. If wreaths aren’t your thing, make a wheat bouquet with pops of color from your favorite fall blossoms.

4. Bring Life to Your Outdoor Space

Make your porch an extension of your yard’s natural beauty by adding a wide range of foliage. From pumpkins to fall-colored blossoms, a nature-filled porch will add brightness and an inviting atmosphere to your porch. But don’t forget about your backyard! Add some potted plants with autumnal blooms and wheat accents. The more you play with livening up your outdoor space all around, the more your home will look like an enchanting house out of a storybook.

5. Use Tin Flowerpots

One of the best ways to show off those autumn blossoms—both inside and outside of the house—is with tin pots. They’re a great way to give your home a more rustic, autumnal aesthetic that allows for a nice backdrop when paired with pumpkins. They also make for wonderful centerpieces on the table!

6. Include Autumn Aromas

When it comes to the inside of your house, make sure to include plenty of autumn aromas. Whether it’s with essential oils or candles, bringing in scents of cinnamon, clove, and orange can do wonders for creating that fall atmosphere. If strongly scented candles aren’t for you, try wrapping cinnamon sticks around a plain candle with twine—it will still give off that cinnamon scent, but not in an overwhelming way.

7. Pick a Focal Point

Finally, to keep from going too overboard with the decorations, aim for going big on just one area of the home, like the table, mantel, or hutch. Then spread small arrangements throughout the house as an accent to the focal point. Soon you’ll be on your way to a wonderfully fall-themed house!
