Autumn is the time of the year when nature creates a golden shower of leaves to cover the earth like blanket and prepare it for the cold and snowy weather to come. It is also the time to invite this warm presence in your home and let it empower and brighten your rooms. It is a wonderful time to experiment and set free all those ideas that have been moving inside your head and never had a chance to get out. Knowing where to start from and what to set the focus on can be extremely helpful in decorating and maintaining the theme of the season within your house.
The front door is a good idea to start your decoration from. Fall is a time of harvest, so make sure you accentuate this at your front door. Place bowls with pears, apples and persimmons on small chairs and tables or the stairs in front of your door to show a sense of fulfillment. Do not forget about the most emblematic fall plant – pumpkins! Just before you use them for Halloween decorations, place those along your front door. They are excellent for capturing attention and look pretty at night, under the lights of a porch lamp. Consider the free resources of the season – the leaves that cover the ground can be a material to create wonderful accessories from. A wreath of leaves combined with garland from garden clippings say a warm welcome better than any sign on your door. Feel free to bring the spirit of autumn to your mailbox too, if you have one. It is usually a place where no decoration is put, but fall is a good time to change this.
Do not forget to follow the appropriate color themes that complement the season. The palette of fall ranges from pale yellow to crimson red. Look no further than falling leaves for inspiration and make your home cozy and welcoming, filled with warmth and comfort. The natural color of any wooden furniture will greatly complement the color theme of the season and make the picture of your home even more romantic. For rooms that have already chosen different color theme, it is possible to still include fall elements. Dress the furniture with orange and brown to make just as good impression and complete the seasonal look. Do not be afraid to set a striking accent, as long as it picks up a hue from the other colors. A flashy red will greatly complement other fall colors like orange and bronze, while making a statement. Remember that most fall colors are not just suitable for the season, they allow great versatility and offer a cozy look throughout the year.
Feel free to make your home even more inviting, by letting the spirit of the season inside. Consider room decorations that will complement the look and the color of your home. Do not forget about pumpkins and other plants that make great décor – use them in vases, jars, trays and baskets cleverly placed where you and your guests can enjoy them. Candles, wreaths of leaves and flowers can further complement a look. Fall decoration allows one to express creativity and originality, so don’t be afraid to
One general advice for anyone willing to decorate this fall would be that usually it is the small touches and personality added in any decoration that provide best results and most satisfaction. You could use this time of the year to express yourself and make your home a display of warmth and style.
