Fall Home Decorating Ideas to Use Today

What comes to mind when you think of fall — the vibrant hues of changing leaves? Finally getting to wear your favorite sweater? The appetizing scent of freshly-baked pie? There are many wonderful home decorating ideas to incorporate during this fall season to greatly enrich your home décor.

To begin with, create a cozy feeling in your home by moving furniture into small, conversational groups. Add plenty of pillows, large and small, and a few plush throw blankets which are just right for reading a good book or snuggling up for an afternoon nap on a cool day. A really easy home decorating idea to use today!

If your home decorating idea calls for a more drastic change to your home décor to usher in the fall season, buy slip covers in deep shades that imitate nature, such as, deep red, forest green or warm brown. When spring arrives, replace your fall slip covers with lighter shades and fabrics. You may also want to consider having two sets of window treatments–one for spring and one for fall–for a more complete seasonal change.

One way to bring a touch of fall indoors is to create simple wreaths and garland with grapevine, dried leaves, pinecones or greenery and berries. Silk flowers as well as fall-colored ribbon can also be added to the wreath as an elegant accessory to complete your home decorating idea.

Take advantage of the abundance of fruits and vegetables that are harvested during the fall season. Visit your local grocer or farmer’s market or take a trip to a farm to pick your own pumpkins, gourds, apples and pears. Apply a coat of lacquer to each piece to avoid fading or spoiling, and then place them in bowls, baskets or glass containers. They will enhance any room in your home and will look especially nice as a centerpiece for your dining table.

Another home decorating idea is to use potted mums to add brilliant color to your home. Golds, reds and purples look stunning in rustic baskets or flowerpots. Add a coordinating ribbon around the base of the container for a decorative touch. To add interest and create an eye-catching display, position the containers of mums at varying heights.
