As the leaves fall, we all want to make a change to our home décor. Here are a few ways to make your home feel like fall, no matter what the climate is like where you live.
Wreaths are always a festive choice, and many fall wreaths will last until spring. Branches, and fake fruits such as apples or baby gourds are always a nice touch to any fall decorations. For an added sparkle, experiment with different spray paints or just add a glitter spray as a finishing touch. You will feel like it is fall in New England in no time.
When redecorating for the fall season, consider this whimsical touch. Use wallpaper decals on your older furniture for a completely new look. Whenever redecorating bedrooms, headboards can make a huge difference in the overall feel of the room. Metal frames and headboards are big this fall, and can give the appearance of extra space. An alternative headboard idea from Better Homes and Gardens is to attach vintage hankies to an artists’ canvas and hang it above and behind the bed. For a full-room change, slipcovers are always drastic for any season. Whether you are redecorating an entire room or just looking for a seasonal alteration, throwing slipcovers over your tables and chairs can make for a nice accent to any room.
Table centerpieces and door hangings can be a nice holiday touch, but do not overlook this decorative opportunity just because it isn’t Christmas! Pumpkins, acorns, and pinecones make great centerpieces for the fall months. You could hollow out a pumpkin and use it as a flowerpot or elevate a candle and add stones and acorns to the design. Beaded garland is always a nice touch. You can wrap this around gourds, or plastic apples and throw acorns and leaves in the mix. For extra shiny leaves, rub with a little Vaseline or moisturizer.
With all of your decorations and remodeling ideas, remember the fall colors. Deep, burnt oranges, chartreuse shades of green, burgundies and earthy browns are all really great choices for autumn.
