Summer is almost at a close and fall is closing in. Actually, we only have 20 days left to enjoy swimming, camping, canoeing, and light summer breezes. Fall is by far my favorite season of the year. I just love colorful leaves, hot drinks, cozy fires, snuggling under a plethora of blankets, and the chill of winter approaching.
With fall on its way it is time to start thinking about fall home decorating ideas. I'm not sure if its just me but I love to have my home feel as cozy as possible during these cool months. There are a few things that you can do to provide the coziest of settings for your home this fall.
Fall Home Decor Ideas
Swap out light weight cotton blankets for thicker, more snug fabrics such as, velvet. Choose warm colors in hues such as, reds, yellows, golds, and browns. Hang them over the backs of chairs and drape them over your couch to provide the perfect way to keep warm this fall. Blankets add the perfect level of comfort and warmth to your living room.
Natural aspects can add more depth to your home decor. Add vases filled with pine cones or apples to add color and depth to your home. And you do not have to stop at just pine cones and apples try to branch out and use gourds, mini pumpkins, and even a colorful arrangement of leaves. If you choose to decorate with apples, you can also have a healthy snack on hand too!
Give your front door some character and charm this fall with a homemade wreath. Wreaths are the perfect way to add a splash of color and character to share with the world. There are some great tutorials on Pinterest for a variety of wreaths. Go check them out!
Rugs are the perfect way to add depth and comfort to any room. Personally, I love to add rugs to my front room during fall. Unfortunately, my front room is where my dogs lurk when I'm not at home. The last time I put a rug down, it got torn to shreds. Now, I am stuck with placing rugs in places where my dogs are supervised and under my watchful eye.
Pillows should be treated the same as you would your blankets. Switch out your light, summer pillows with thicker, heavier pillows in colors that accent your throw blankets and the weather outside! If you don't have pillows for summer, you can make your own pillow cases in autumn colors to add a cozy aspect to your house.
