Fall is the best for warmer tones and darker hues. This is the time you can experiment the most with red, green and so much more. You can incorporate fall inspired spaces for most of the spaces in your house. Autumn décor is not just about the warmer tones but more about how you can easily incorporate the festive décor in the year-end to your existing fall décor, so this needs to be just the right amount. Whether or not this can last a year-long depends on the choices you make now. Let’s get started!
Faking a Mantel
Don’t have a mantel? That’s alright, and you can fake one. A bookcase, sideboard, cabinet, console table; use the top part of any of these to create a mantel. You may need to re-position this to the living rooms as that’s where family and friends are expected to gather the most. You can easily get fall foliage collection paired up with fairy lights stretching all over the top of these shelf-tops and create your very own personalized mantel without having a fireplace or buying new furniture to enjoy your autumn home makeover. You can have the most realistic artificial plants as fall foliage looking amazing with their pre-lit feature.
The right light is not always bright
Since autumn is that season that represents the most welcoming time of the year, the lighting for your home space must also exude the same feeling. To ensure this make sure you get a bunch of candle holders. These with lit up candles can set the mood just right for your guests. Skip the confusion of choices and get black candle holders, these blends in very well with all and any décor. Alternatively, you can also go for the electric versions that will make it easier as you wouldn’t need to clear out the molten mess later on. Light fixtures are also very important, and if you can get a material with the stone texture, it would go brilliantly with the warm hues of the season.
Let’s talk colors
Fall wreaths, pumpkin décor and the rest, are very common, but choosing the right colors for your walls and the rest of the décor is very crucial at this point. For the warmer tones, you can choose bright orange hues paired up with creamy tones for the walls. This is one of the most common of choices, and alternatively, for a modern touch, you can choose a green hue paired with grey tone, a sunny yellow hue, cobalt blue or red tones. Once you have selected a color palette, you can go ahead and choose how you wish to incorporate it. You can have the furniture with these accents against lighter tones or have brown colored pieces paired with these. No, while we talk colors, we can’t miss out on the green, so in case you find your color palette devoid of lush green colors you always have the faux plants and trees to lean on.
A little more green maybe?
We understand interior plant maintenance is a cumbersome job, but when you are on the hunt for the trendiest autumn décor, you can’t skip this basic. A large indoor tree might not be what you are looking for, but you can go for bushy plants with dark green hues. If you want something even smaller, get planter pots in brown hues and small faux greens. These can be placed on the bookshelves, cabinets or any other space that fell short for being the mantel.
The harvest décor
It is evident that this is the season of harvest, to cherish that you don’t need to grow a real pumpkin; a simple décor change can bring out the best of your home at this part of the year. Pumpkin shaped accessories like lights, centerpieces, candle holders, wall art, table sitters, accent décor, tin yard pumpkin sets; these are just a few items to name that you can incorporate in your interior décor. The best part about these accessories is that after the season is over, you can go ahead and replace them and store away for re-using next year with a twist. These can help uplift the ambiance and set the right tone for the season, but you can eliminate them from the décor set-up anytime you like, unlike wall paint or furniture.
Don’t miss out the corners
While decorating it’s easy to miss out the less relevant part of the house, but this is where you can miss the most. Let’s start with the steps of your house; you can line them up with Mexican sage or boxwood. For the porch or if you have a small balcony for that matter, you can have pumpkin shaped lights, or pumpkin accents places carefully. In case you have a sitting arrangement there, you can throw in oversized pillows. Just skip floral prints and keep them packed in fabrics of warmer tones like red, orange, black or cream. The table décor is equally important, where you dine; you need to set-up the table with harvest accents like bamboo centerpieces, jute table mats or anything else that spells harvest for you.
The door and the welcome mat
Wreaths on the door may be a must for some, but if you want a trendy taste, this autumn gets a welcome door sign. You can have this sign decorated with orange and black with simple fonts if you want more of an autumn feel you can also use pumpkin shaped stencils to draw on the door sign. With this, you can have a black doormat, without a scary Halloween sign, which can be a part of your décor year long, even after you change the décor.
Summary: The most traditional and trendiest of home décor for this season. Starting from doormats to accents, color palette, and lights, everything you need to know to set-up the perfect ambiance for the season and upcoming holidays.
