Fall is officially here, and it’s time to change up your interior design to suit the season. As the leaves on the trees begin to shift their shades and fall, the vibe of life takes an equally as chill a vibe as the weather outside.
Before it’s time for snowballs and stockings, grant your home the warmth of fall decor. Here are a few decorating ideas for your home’s interior that will help ring in the beauty of one of the most colorful seasons of the year.
Your fireplace presents opportunity
Your fireplace is already a focal point in the room it inhabits, but there are plenty of things you can do to decorate the area for the changes of fall. Decorate the mantle of your fireplace with rich golden browns, reds, and oranges. Utilize a leaf garland to set the tone, and go from there.
The kitchen and dining room
Your family will be spending quite a bit of time hanging out in the kitchen and dining room in the next few months, so you want to make sure the most frequented areas of your home are warm and welcoming.
Before you get the pumpkin pies out for supper, make sure you swap out the placemats and the tablecloth. Break out the fall colored flatware, and don’t be afraid to place a few small pumpkins out for display.
What to do in the bathroom for fall
You may not consider the bathroom a place to decorate for the changing seasons, but it’s the perfect space for consistent transition. You’ll need plenty of decorative fall leaves to spread around the house, and your bathroom is one place where you’ll find them useful.
Place a decorative plate. Spread a few colorful leaves over the plate, and set your hand soap, essential oils, and lotion strategically on the plate. You will instantly create a gorgeous focal point in the room, while simultaneously warming the space.
Bring the warmth of the season into the bedroom
Your bedroom is a place where you can really involve the various textures of fall. Add throw pillows to the bed with corduroy and colors like burnt orange and rich maroons.
Swap out your bedding for appropriate complementary colors, and burn rich candle scents to add another layer of engagement to the room. Decorations are not always about tangible things. Sometimes scents can be far more powerful at boosting a room’s aesthetic.
Prepare for the muddy season
Fall brings about some rainy weather, and you’re likely to battle mud. If you have children, the battle could get pretty messy. Set up a functional mudroom space in your home, and create fun spaces for everyone to place the outerwear.
