1. CREATE A WARMING AND INVITING GLOW WITH CANDLES
Decorating with the best candles can not only help to make a room feel more warm, inviting and cozy – as well as smell great, they are a wonderfully versatile decorating tool, and can help to add character and style to almost any room in the home.
2. UPLIFT YOUR HOME WITH FALL FOLIAGE
Nothing quite embodies the changing of the seasons like the changes found amongst nature; from the colors of the leaves on the trees to bright summer blooms being replaced by rich fall foliage. Bringing the beauty of the outdoors indoors with the best winter houseplants and fall flowers and foliage can be a quick and easy way to switch up the look of a room and help make it feel more fall-like.
3. CONSIDER YOUR FALL CURB APPEAL
Your fall wreath ideas need to be given pride of place, which is why they are simply the best for fall front door decor, though we love to see them used above the mantel in a living space or as a table centerpiece in a dining room or kitchen.
4. WARM UP YOUR LIVING ROOM FOR FALL
Fall decor doesn't need to be a seasonal touch: you can use favorite fall paint colors to warm up cool rooms quickly and easily. Terracotta decor and brown living room ideas are wonderful for fall. This season sees a return to simple, restrained palettes – and being close to nature has moved from greens of the forest to a soft, neutral palette of fossil tones, raw materials and natural elements, such as stone, textures of cotton and linen with soft earthy browns, warm terracotta and clay putty tones as a contrast.
5. INDULGE IN FALL CRAFTS
There's no better time than when the weather is cooler and wetter to indulge in fall craft ideas. While halloween decor ideas will take precedence, with pumpkin carving ideas easily the most popular way to decorate, we love no-carve pumpkin ideas, too, which will allow you to display your pumpkin for the holiday then, just before it starts to soften, repurpose it for the pot.
6. MAX OUT FALL TABLE DECOR FOR AN OCCASION
A celebration at this time of year is the perfect excuse to indulge in fall table decor ideas.
7. WARM UP HARD FLOORS WITH COZY RUGS
If you can only add one item to your fall decor ideas, an area room rug is an excellent choice. One of the easiest ways to add color, warmth and texture to your room this fall is to introduce a versatile – and easily changeable – rug. More flexible than a carpet or other form of fixed floorcovering, rugs and runners offer a fantastic way to soften a hard stone, tiled or timber floor, and can also be layered onto soft floors to provide extra interest or to define zones.
8. DRESS YOUR THANKSGIVING TABLE TO PERFECTION
Fall decor stretch right up to and beyond Thanksgiving, when we start to think about Christmas instead. If you're hosting the Thanksgiving feast this year, you likely have a lot on your to-do list, and between carving the turkey and baking the pumpkin (or pecan) pie, setting the table should be high on your priority list.
9. DECORATE A FALL MANTEL TO IMPRESS
While we're big fan of fall trends, the very best fall decor ideas are inspired by nature. Look to the best plants for fall color and fall flowers for ideas for your fall mantel ideas and wreaths, but don't be afraid to choose dried arrangements that can be carefully packed away after the season and reused or even repurposed with the addition of fresh flowers.
10. GATHER AROUND AN OUTDOOR FIRE PIT
Let the good times roll with outdoor fireplace ideas and backyard fire pit ideas that will keep everyone cozy outside even when the temperature drops. Setting up an enclosed seating area around a fire pit, log-burning brazier or chiminea is a tried-and-tested way of adding the cozy factor to your fall decor this fall. As well as warmth, the fire will add extra light and can be used for seasonal treats, such as toasting marshmallows or warming mulled wine.
11. HIBERNATE AT HOME IN A COZY LIVING SPACE
Cozy living room ideas are pretty much top of most people's lists at the moment – for obvious reasons, when you consider that the most used space in a home is the living space. Fall decor ideas should be functional and, above all, comfortable – particularly if all you crave is a soothing space to unwind in at the end of a busy day.
12. WARM UP WITH HOT SHADES
In a cool bedroom – or one that you want to feel warm and welcoming – red is a great choice. 'Red has become enduringly popular lately – and is a very stimulating shade. In this palette, it also represents the moment during exercising when you are at the top of your game,' according to trend forecasters, TrendBook.
13. INTRODUCE A SEPIA-TONED GALLERY WALL
An eclectic, reddish-brown gallery wall with mismatched frames and art is the perfect recipe for fall. This gentle fall color scheme will add a sophisticated elegance and a refinement to any room in your home, and is a go-to for anyone who wants an easy-to-live with tone that will go with almost any other color, even beyond fall and winter.
14. INTRODUCE YEAR-ROUND INTEREST WITH ORNAMENTAL GRASSES
Ornamental grasses bring movement and sound to the fall garden, and carry color and interest through to fall and winter. They are the ideal solution to early-fall doldrums: as summer flowers fade, their subtly colored foliage and sprays of tiny flowers will take center stage if you are planning a winter garden.
