Tips for Decorating Your Home for Fall this Autumn Season

  |     |   Decorating, Lifestyle and Culture

The days are growing shorter, the weather is chilly, and Starbucks is introducing pumpkin spice lattes. 

Yes, autumn is here, which means it's time to decorate your home with autumnal elements (fancy eh?). Even if your apartment does not have much internal space, you may nevertheless provide warmth for the fall.

Here are just a few ideas on how to decorate your home with the coziest season of the year's looks and scents.

Oh my – throws, pillows, and blankets.

Put some lovely wraps and cozy blankets out on display to accomplish two goals at once (being warm and decorating for fall). Nothing compares to the comfort of a warm, earth-toned blanket on a relaxing day. Choose traditional patterns like plaid and fabrics like chunky cable knit to give your home a "autumn atmosphere." This one from Pier One Imports, this cable knit throw from Wayfair, or this reasonably priced pumpkin throw cushion are three that we particularly adore.

Bring out them candles

You'll need a bit extra light in your home as the days become shorter to improve your mood. Get your votives, tea lights, and rustic lanterns ready! Invest in some fall-scented candles to transform your flat into a cozy retreat for the season. (Just remember to blow them out before you leave or turn in for the night!)


Such a sweet way to welcome fall into your house is to use small pumpkins as décor! Any grocery shop in the United States, including Trader Joe's (here in California), sells items in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes.

Build a Wreath

A vibrant fall wreath may be used to adorn doorways, windows, or even an empty area over your stove or mantel. You may make one yourself for a reasonable price or purchase one for a reasonable price. To add pops of orange, red, yellow, and brown, you can also use corn cobs, tiny pumpkins, zucchini, berry garlands, or fall flowers. Find some wreath inspiration here.

Fruit Garland

Run a lovely berry garland down the wood of any banisters or mantles you may have to create the ideal autumnal statement.

Make a fall-themed table centerpiece.

Create a DIY centerpiece to decorate your table with seasonal flowers, pumpkins, leaves, pine cones, and of course, candles. All you really need to make something that looks festive at every meal is a few autumnal accents, a tabletop, and your creativity. Alternately, arrange various-sized autumnal vegetables, gourds, pumpkins, etc. on the dining room table to create a (cheap) centerpiece.

Autumn Flowers

Use dahlias, ranunculus, and gathered yard trimmings, including leaves and branches. Then, depending on the size of your arrangement, put them in a straightforward vase or a rustic pot to create a design that would look great on your mantel.
