Blankets, pumpkins, and leaves – boy, do we love fall. Here are a few ideas to bring this festive season into your home. Special appearances from your favorite globe.
Decorate with food
Nothing says fall more than pumpkins, but they aren’t just for carving or for pies. Find pumpkins – real or artificial – of different colors and sizes and pair them with a focal item to create an eye-catching arrangement. Fall herbs like rosemary and thyme can be wrapped into small, decorative bouquets.
Turn functional, wearable items into decorative accents
Soft items like blankets, throw pillows, and sweaters aren’t just for keeping us warm – use them as background elements to create coziness and warmth in your decor. Try hanging brimmed hats on your walls or putting cardigans and scarves in your bookshelves. A soft blanket placed on your coach is a must – it’s functional and attractive.
Bring in elements from the harvest
There’s something about fall that is beautifully organic and earthy. It makes sense to have decor that evokes Mother Nature. Think beyond fall leaves and pine cones. Deer antlers, potted moss, corn stalks, crates, and reeds are a few ways to invite the season into your home. For something a little different, incorporate moon-themed objects and images – it is the season of the harvest after all and this makes us think of full moons and long, dark nights.
