It is that time of year again. Time to transition our homes from summer and bring in all the wonderful home decorating items saved for fall!
In this post, I am sharing 5 simple steps on how to decorate your house for fall using examples from a round-up of fall decor posts I have created over the years. Starting with the first simple step…
How to Decorate your House for Fall?
Remove any Non-Fall Related Home Decor.
The first step to transitioning from one season to another is out with the old in with the new. That means to remove any spring, summer, or winter-related decor. Those pink flowers or those snowflake pillows? Store it. These items will clash with the new fall decor you are about to bring in.
2. Add Pumpkins… Anywhere.
Fake or real, it does not matter, just grab a few pumpkins and place them around the house for a total fall feel. One of my favorite fall activities is taking a trip to the pumpkin patch and coming home with all different varieties of pumpkins to decorate with. Especially the mini ones which are also great to use on fall-themed tablescapes. Woven pumpkins like this small one or this larger size are another favorite of mine and will last year after year.
3. Fall Scented Candles and Pot Pourri:
Fall has some of the best scents in my opinion. Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric. Bring these beautiful smells into your home via potpourri and candles. I absolutely love any fall candles such as cinnamon or my personal favorite, this heritage pumpkin candle scent from Target.
4. Faux Fur Throws + Pillows
Faux fur anything adds to a cozy fall theme. When I get home and see my faux fur throw on the couch I just want to snuggle in it with a big bowl of popcorn and watch Harry Potter. Here are a few of my favorites:
5. Halloween Decor
Each year I felt like I had to choose between decorating for fall or Halloween. This year I plan to dedicate September + November to fall decor. October will be dedicated to all things Halloween starting with a magnificent black wreath on my door and mini pumpkin string lights on my table.
