The leaves are starting to change and the air is getting cooler, which means fall has arrived with all of its beautiful colors. It’s time to put away all the bright colors you’ve used all spring and summer, and start bringing out the Halloween and autumn decor. The great thing about fall decor is that the best colors to use are the ones naturally occurring in nature. If you like to change your decor season to season, now is the time to start. To help, we’ve put together tips to kick start your transition from summer to fall.

  1. Lamps - As the seasons change, so does the amount of light that you’ll be able to use. Start thinking about where you’ll need extra lighting, as the natural sunlight will mostly all be gone by dinner time. You can also utilize lampshades to help bring out the fall theme by decorating them yourself.  
  2. Rugs, Rugs, Rugs - As mentioned before, for most of the country the temperatures are slowly dropping, which means you’ll want an extra layer between you and the floor. Don’t be afraid to overdo it with rugs by layering when necessary. One other easy way to help bring more autumn into your life is a fall themed bath mat.
  3. Display Nature - Bring what’s outside, inside. Fall is a great time to use the natural resources around for decoration. Whether it’s firewood, or even small sticks, bringing in natural wood will change the feel from summer to fall instantly. Decorating with leaves will also instantly bring the season into your living space, whether it’s with pressed leaves or a whole wreath.
  4. Plaid - If there was one specific pattern that looked best during the fall season, it would be plaid. Try incorporating the pattern into many aspects of your decor, whether it be throw pillows, blankets, or even slip covers for your furniture.  
  5. Decorate Pumpkins - Although traditions tell you to carve your pumpkins, simply decorating them will stretch their longevity significantly. Painting them is a popular idea, but try adding other materials to them as well, such as ribbons or lace.
