  1.  Pumpkins

What is fall without pumpkins, their orange abundance lining walkways, adorning tables and serving as centerpieces at the dining table?  Pumpkins are synonymous with fall and no home is complete without them at this time of year.  Decorate them, carve them, paint them or cut them out to display flowers.  Their decorative uses are endless.

4.  Area rugs

Area rugs bring warmth, color and texture to a room.  They can define a space.  Area rugs can be placed in layers to create even more interest.  Try bold colors or keep it simple with a neutral.  Keep the rug size in scale with the room and furnishings.  Choose warm wool or a plush sheepskin rug for comfort underfoot.
