3 Simple Ways to Bring Out the Fall Décor
1. Bring in the Colors of Fall: Stems and Foliage
One of the easiest and most effective ways to bring in the autumn vibes is by introducing the warm, rich colors of fall. Sarah suggests starting with stems and foliage. Opt for deep oranges, rustic reds, and earthy browns. The key is to choose two main colors and one contrasting color to maintain a cohesive look.
When selecting stems, go for taller ones, around 12 to 13 inches above your vase’s rim. This height provides a more impactful and balanced display. You don’t need a lot of stems – just work on making them lush and full by bending and arranging them to your liking.
2. Swap Out Your Accessories: Bowls and Fillers
Another way to infuse fall into your home is by revamping your décor accessories. You don’t need to buy a whole new collection – instead, focus on a few strategic changes. Take that unused bowl sitting in storage and fill it with fall-themed items like acorns or decorative pumpkins. It’s a quick and cost-effective way to update your home.
3. Cozy up Your Space with Pillows and Throws
One of the most impactful changes you can make for the fall season is swapping out your pillows and throws. Pillows with rich, warm colors and textured fabrics, like velvet or plaid, are perfect for creating a cozy atmosphere. Sarah recommends concentrating on a few accent chairs or areas to keep it manageable and budget-friendly.
The right throw, with its softness and fringe details, can instantly make your space feel more inviting and autumn-ready. Look for throws that feature fall colors and textures that mimic the season’s coziness.
These three simple swaps can help you embrace the cozy season without a major overhaul. By concentrating on a few key areas in your home, you can create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
