In the evening air, the pumpkin cools down, it stands along the highways, goes down early in the evening and reaches for your favorite cuddly sweater – all telltale signs of the arrival of autumn! Although it may be sad to say goodbye to summer, the good news is that the fall decoration season is officially coming. It's a season that's all about nature and probably the most fun you'll have decorating all year round.
With so many fall folk items available at local stores, it can be overwhelming to choose what suits your personal style as well as the style of your home. They may be attracted by tiny gourds, leaf garlands, and pumpkins galore, but these can easily become messy in your home if not strategically added. We've put together our best tips to prepare your home for fall in no time!
1) Beware of pumpkin overload – Our first practical tip is not to buy every pumpkin in sight. We know it's hard! However, a combination of textures, colors and shapes is one way to ensure that your fall decoration adds more interest and variety to your spaces. Consider creating a centerpiece with a large pumpkin, a candle lamp and a small pumpkin or pumpkin, and then add some loose leaves to fill the room. Wooden boards, logs and branches can also give a natural touch.
2) Reuse Existing Pieces for Spooky Vignettes – Take a look at some of your everyday decorations and simply add seasonal accents. It can be a lot of work to pack up your standard decorative elements for the season, and you can also keep some of the more functional parts in the room while still having an autumnal look. Items such as pillar holders, geometric metal shapes or balls, trays, baskets, and decorative balls are great examples of neutral items that can be used with your seasonal decor! Take the tray that is currently on your ottoman and house candles and coasters, and add a few mini-pumpkins and a touch of green for a fresh look. This can be changed any season and creates visually appealing seasonal vignettes around your home.
3) Unwrap some everyday decoration items – Once you've determined which items are left over, you'll want to work on some of the rooms to avoid over-decoration. Fall is a time for layers, so do not be afraid to beautify your current décor, but there are still some standard rules for decoration. Select ungraded groupings, vary the height, and remove the excess. Unwrap the excess items and keep in mind that you may not see them until after a few months, when winter comes around the corner!
4) Try a monochrome look – If you're tired of orange, burgundy, yellow and gold – try white! Nothing looks more crisp than some plain white pumpkins paired with soft linens, white candles and black and wooden accents. White pumpkins go well with a "modern farmhouse" and are good with silver, if you prefer. With white, you can usually use more of your existing decor elements.
5) Distinguishing Between "Fall" and "Halloween" Decoration – To get the longest season of the season, start with fall decoration and avoid witch hats, owls, and black cats by mid-October (of course, black cats) are your furbabies, then they can stop). It can be so tempting to try a mix of traditional autumn decor and witch hats – just think about how long you want to leave your decor out. Neutral Autumn items can be displayed longer in the season than pumpkin lanterns and bats!
6) Do not forget the exterior! – There may not be an easier season to decorate the exterior of your home than fall! Look at your local farms and greenhouses to collect hay bales, corn stalks, pumpkins and mothers! Use your existing urns and arrange small groups of seasonal items around your door or porch to welcome your guests invitingly and comfortably. Remember to select items in different shapes and sizes to get a nice visual balance!
