1. Add Vibrant Florals and Foliage
There are so many ways you can make your home feel like fall with flowers and foliage. They naturally give your home a lovely dash of life and you can go the natural or faux route. Search for plants that are in season such as: African Daisies, Bidens, Marigolds, Garden Mums (Chrysanthemum), and Sunflowers. Or forage foliage from your backyard! There’s no shortage of maple garland and other fall-inspired faux florals. Whichever your preference, simply create bouquets and place them in a vase or carved out pumpkin. They look great on your dining table, coffee table, counters, desks, and bookshelves.
2. Hang Artwork with Muted Colors
Fall is all about bringing warm hues that mimic the reds, browns, and oranges you see outdoors. An easy way to create an autumn-inspired color palette indoors is by switching out your colorful summer artwork to something that’s more muted and shows off warm, earthy tones. Hang a DIY hand-painted canvas or opt for something you already have lying around.
3. Create Texture with Cozy Throws
The first thing that comes to mind when you think of fall is warmth and comfort (aka coziness). Nothing brings these feelings like a good throw blanket that not only keeps you warm but also adds a decorative touch. Leave out your snuggly throw blankets on your couch, on a chair, or on your bed to add some texture. Another way to add texture and enhance the cozy feel in your home is by adding decorative throw pillows. Make sure to place them in places you want to draw attention to like the living room or bedroom.
4. Embrace Bulbs with A Warm Glow
Last but definitely not least is lighting. Swap out bulbs that give off a cool, blue-toned glow with ones that give off a more golden or amber hue. Lighting is an effortless way to tie your entire home together because the color of the light can instantly transform the atmosphere of a space.
