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.
The warm glow of candlelight adds a great ambiance to rooms during the fall season. Use decorative candleholders or make your own. Embellish glass containers with leaves, pinecones, nuts and other natural objects to bring the warmth of fall into your home.
3. Fall leaves, nature
Bring the outdoors in with beautiful branches and leaves full of fall color. Warm gold, bright red and glowing orange mixed with brown invites nature to your home with style. Arrange branches in tall vases, scatter leaves within table arrangements and include other natural objects in displays for added texture and variety.
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.
Bring out the colorful throws and warm woolen blankets. Drape some lush fur blankets over the sofa or chairs for a stylish and functional enhancement to the room. For those cooler days and nights, having a blanket handy is nice for a snuggle. Use blankets to add color and texture.
There are many ways to enhance your home for the fall season, but pumpkins, candles, foliage, rugs and blankets are five small touches that go a long way toward a cozy, stylish fall home.
