Now that autumn is here, it’s time to beautify your home with elegant fall decor. Choose pieces that reflect your style and the vibe of the season, and they’ll be wonderful to look at every day.
There is no shortage of fabulous options, many of which would look great in any room of your home.
1. Green Accents
Although many associate the color green with spring, don’t count it out as a fall hue. Incorporating options like green throw pillows and glass or ceramic pumpkins in a soft green hue can provide gorgeous elements that complement fall’s traditional colors.
Take a page from some of the many Folly Beach homes for sale. Details that some of them feature, like green trim on white facades, make a stunning decorative statement.
2. Textured Textiles
Furnishings with interesting textures, like soft faux fur throw blankets and pillows with cable knit detailing, can look beautiful in your home in the fall. Mix and match them with housewares that have little to no texture for a charming balance.
For example, if you think your couch is a little plain and boring, add some fluffy blankets and brightly colored throw pillows for a little pizzazz.
3. Radiant Red
Pops of red around your home are a fabulous way to celebrate fall. You could put up red autumn-inspired signs, display red apples, put out a red wagon with flowers, or showcase buffalo plaid plush pumpkins around your home.
There’s no doubt that vibrant red is a hue that’s easy to notice. For instance, you may see some homes in Dewees Island that have bold red front doors that add curb appeal and immediately draw your eyes to them. Create the same effect for your home, both inside and out, with bright red decorative accents.
4. Cozy, Colorful Furniture
Including cozy and colorful furniture is fantastic for adding some (pumpkin) spice to your abode. For example, consider bringing a thickly cushioned burnt orange armchair into your living room or family room and pairing it with fluffy white pillows.
It’ll be great for a fall-style surprise, especially if the room you choose has mostly neutral shades. If you’d rather not keep that chair out year-round, you could simply store it until next autumn. Or, instead of adding furniture, just use a slipcover in a bright fall hue on a chair that’s already there.
5. Faux Candles
Buying candles for your interior is a superb option for creating a peaceful, cozy fall setting. Incorporate them into centerpieces, put them on the mantel, on kitchen and bathroom counters, on end tables, and anyplace else where a lovely soft light can enhance the space.
Make sure to have spare batteries on hand, so you can power the faux candles whenever you want during the season.
One of the biggest benefits of faux candles is that they easily fit into any room, decorating theme, and color scheme.
For instance, you can pair them with colors and materials like beige and galvanized metal or burnt orange and white cable knit, and they’ll still look elegant in any setting.
6. Natural Materials
Handcrafted items using certain natural materials, like pinecones and dried pampas grass, would make a fantastic addition to your home in autumn. And you can’t decorate for fall without bringing in some pumpkins, real or simulated.
Whether you’re getting your natural decorative materials from a store or website or going out to get them yourself, make sure they’re thoroughly cleaned before bringing them into your home. You wouldn’t want to bring unexpected tiny critters into your space.
7. Fall Florals
Marigolds, sunflowers, and goldenrods are some of the most gorgeous fall florals you can blend into your home for autumn. They add an elegant yet vibrant touch, whether they’re real or just look that way. As wonderful as real flowers are, getting silk artificial options can allow you to keep the same breathtaking bouquets throughout the season without continuously replacing them, and you’ll get to reuse them again the following year.
8. Wreaths and Garlands
Choose the right fall faux garlands and wreaths, and they’ll add an elegant touch to the inside and outside of your home. Hang the garlands around windows and doorways, or wrap them around handrails. Place the wreaths on the front and back doors of your home, or use them on interior doors. Display them anywhere you need a touch of beauty and bursts of color.
9. Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns in autumn hues bring a funky touch to fall decor. They don’t need to be big and bold to catch the eye. Even small yet vibrant pieces, like throw blankets or artwork, can create a pleasing fall aesthetic. Pick whatever geometric patterns appeal to you, whether you want to limit them or display them in a grand fashion.
