How to Transition Your Home From Summer to Fall

We are nearing that time of the year again. The transition into colder and shorter fall days. Decorating your home to mimic these changes is a fun way to add seasonal flair to your home. Here are some ways to bring fall into your home.

Color is a simple yet essential way to transition into the fall season. Deep, harvest colors such as bronze, gold, orange, and brown are best for transforming your home. This gives a rustic fall feel without changing huge elements of your home. Ceramic pumpkins, leafs or owls will work perfectly for this. If these colors cannot work with your current color scheme, try using similar accent pieces but with more neutral colors such as white or chrome.

Candles are not only great for filling your home with warming fall scents, but they actually double as decoration. They provide an opportunity for you to play with color once more. When they are lit, they give off a warm and comforting luminosity.

As the weather cools down during the fall season, you want to create a cozy environment for your home. Decorating with some knit throw pillows along with a couple of thick throws will help implement this feeling. You could even swap out any area rugs for something deeper in color yet thicker and softer in texture.

For your backyard, try planting seasonal greenery. They will thrive and flourish in their intended weather, giving your backyard a beautiful and elegant touch. You can also try hanging up some string lights that give off a warm glow. This will reenforce the warmth we are trying to create. It may even be a good idea to add some pillows and blankets out there as well, to make your outdoor lounging time as comfortable as possible during the cold weather. This is why outdoor fireplaces are so popular.

The dining room is another optimal place to work in some fall decor. Try using some decorative placemats. Particularly, ones that are deeper shades or depict a fall theme. Also, a lovely pinecone arrangement makes for an easy and low maintenance centerpiece. Lastly, don’t forget about the table cloth. This can be more simple, but be sure that it has a warm undertone.

Fall wreaths are extremely festive and give a fun hint of color to your door or walls. Though usually associated with Christmas, wreaths can really tie your whole theme together. Wreaths made from artificial turning leaves and pinecones are a big hit. Some decorative mini pumpkins or cranberries also make a great addition.
