Warmly Welcome the Fall Season with Stunning Décor
As the weather takes a turn, there’s perhaps nothing better than enjoying truly cozy digs decorated with all the best fall décor. By infusing the beauty of autumn into your home and office, you can enjoy all the best parts of fall but without the chill factor. Better yet, the fall décor will leave all your guests wholly impressed and feeling cozier than ever at each visit. Ready to get started? Here’s a look at the top autumn décor ideas for 2021 and beyond.
Embrace the Beauty of All the Fall Colors
Fall colors are in full swing, so invite them into your home to create an autumn scene. Brilliant red, deep orange, rich gold, and bright yellow all set the stage for a beautiful interior design. Don’t forget the dark green and brown hues that complement the brighter tones and help bring everything together. When it comes to color, less is more, so pick your theme and add touches of color where your home needs it most.
Add Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice
As your fall colors delight the visual senses, diffusers and candles can add to the warmth with pleasant scents. Although pumpkin spice is a must, you’ll definitely want to go beyond heavenly cinnamon and nutmeg to keep it fresh all season long. Go with rosemary, vanilla, or cranberry for a nod toward a delicious Thanksgiving feast. Or lean toward pine, spruce, and other tree-derived scents to bring the beautiful forest inside. Whatever you choose, aim to change it up on a daily basis to keep the scents at the forefront of your fall décor.
Roll Out All Your Favorite Gourds
Through all the fall holidays, gourds take center stage and help liven up the festivities. They’re never more colorful and plentiful than in the fall, so embrace their appearance by using gourds in your interior design.
You cannot go wrong with whatever gourds speak to you most. So, pick your favorites and put them on a platter, arrange them around the fireplace, or simply place them right outside your front door. Can’t choose between them all? Go with a pumpkin and gourd wreath (or two!).
Go Big on Dried Flowers and Colorful Leaves
Dried flowers and colorful leaves look absolutely phenomenal together, allowing you to save money on flower arrangements without compromising on your home aesthetics. You can buy the dried flowers outright or head out into the garden to see what’s awaiting your arrival. Hydrangea flowers, for example, dry right on the branch and deepen in color as their leaves start to change as well. Don’t hesitate to add a few bare sticks to the mix to add height and interest to your bouquets.
Highlight It All with Copper and Brass Accents
Copper and brass look simply amazing alongside bright fall colors. To help the metallic tones make a perfect impression, go light on their use. Use a copper tray for your gourd display, for example, or pick a bronze vase for your dried flower arrangements.
If you love pumpkins, then definitely try to find a handblown glass pumpkin donning a bronze-dipped stem. If nothing else, you can use a can of copper spray paint to spice up a real pumpkin for your table centerpiece.
Boost the Cozy Factor with Fuzzy Throws and Pillows
Fall definitely brings the sweater weather, so play that up with plenty of fuzzy throws and pillows. Even when they’re not being used, these soft accents up the cozy factor considerably.
Plus, they’re great to have on hand as you settle down to chat with your friends and family. By helping everyone get comfy, you can keep the conversation going well into the evening and make memories to last a lifetime.
Renew the Focus on the Fireplace
When temperatures start to fall, you’ll undoubtedly wind up in front of the fireplace more often than not. So, take advantage of the natural focus on its warmth by elevating its design.
Add a big statement piece just above the mantle, like a pinecone and leaf wreath, and then put a copper pumpkin right beneath it. You can also go with real sugar pumpkins if you wish. Just be sure to surround it all with your favorite candles and figurines, plus drape an attractive garland along the edges.
With all these fall décor ideas on your side, you’re sure to have a blast decorating your home and office for the season. As you pick between the many decor options, infuse your own personality into the mix to make the space all your own. Once you’re done, invite your friends and family over for a fun game night or simply lounge by the fire solo in total peace and quiet.
