5 Ideas to Decorate Your Home for Fall
Fall has arrived! The leaves are changing colors, there’s a crispness in the air, and we’re ready to embrace the cozy vibes the season brings. As the weather gets cooler and people start spending more time indoors again, it’s only natural to want to refresh the look of your home. There are so many ways you can decorate your home for fall it can be hard to know where to begin. If you’re looking for some fall decor inspiration, here are a few of our favorite ideas.
1. Create Seasonal Tablescapes
Whether it’s a big dining room table or a smaller table in a hall or entryway, you have a lot of room to get creative with table decorations as the seasons change. Tablecloths, placemats, candles, fall flowers, foliage, and – of course – pumpkins are just a few ways to create a table you’ll love looking at all season long.
2. Mixing Woods
Fall decor is very rustic, so wood is a perfect way to bring that look into any room. But remember that wood doesn’t necessarily have to be perfectly uniform throughout a room. Mixing finishes and tones is a great way to add some variety and warmth. For example, Anthology laminate flooring, from Mannington’s Restoration Collection®, combines the three most widely used species in flooring: White Oak, Hickory, and Maple. Each of these species has unique character, grain, and color variation. Together, they create a rich and dramatic visual canvas.
3. Include Some Texture
Fall decor can be rich in both color and texture. Decorating with texture in mind helps bring dimension to a room. Materials like wicker and burlap are both perfect for the season. Another idea is to create an arrangement of branches and fall florals. Fabrics like velvet and suede are also great for creating a warm, cozy atmosphere.
4. Add Some Dark Accents
As colorful as fall can be, it can also be a moody season at times. If you want to capture a little bit of that energy, including some black or dark gray accent pieces like side tables, lamps, and vases, can do the job without making a room feel too dark.
5. Change Up Your Accessories
Accessories like throw pillows, blankets, and rugs are simple but effective ways to mix up your home’s decor from season to season. These are all easy ways to bring in classic fall hues and prints without getting locked into a look. Once the seasons change, all you have to do is put the fall accessories in storage and rotate some new ones in, that add some winter style to your home.
