Now that we have officially entered the fall season (as of September 23 to be exact), it may feel like we are on the downhill slide into winter when it comes to lawn care. But for sellers, fall is the perfect time to spruce up the exterior of your home and boost that curb appeal...
The temperature may still be warm, but the daylight hours are shrinking and there is a hint of color change appearing in the trees…fall is in the air! Bring on the pumpkin spice, cozy blankets, and bonfires! Here are a few of our favorite ways to add some fall spice to your home decor this season.
Mad for Plaid
For whatever reason, plaid blankets, place mats, and throw pillows bring out all of the fall feels – we think it may have something to do with the classic color combinations that plaid prints often display. Try re-purposing your lighter weight plaid blankets as layered table cloths or grab a few throw pillows (we love these from Target!) for a subtle, yet timeless nod to fall and its changing colors.
Who says wreaths have to be round? If you are a DIY-er then this wreath is for you. Cluster your favorite fall items (corn husks, dried flowers, etc.) into a bouquet and secure to a burlap sash for a fresh take on an old favorite.
Pumpkins are a fall favorite, so of course we are including these in the mix. Create a beautiful display – perfect in an entryway! – by gathering things like mini pumpkins, gourds, pine cones, and even a branch or two of colorful leaves. Play around with placing your fall objects in whatever vases, jars, or pots you already have on hand! Don’t yet have an entryway table? Here are a few we love from Pottery Barn and Target!
Keep It Classy
Not a huge fan of reds, oranges, and yellows in your decor? We love these beautiful recycled glass pumpkins from Pottery Barn. Fill them with dried foliage, light strands, or candles – they’re both elegant and versatile!
For a simple twist on pumpkin decor, swap the carving knife for a paint brush. We love fall-themed words and phrases like “Gather” and “Warm & Cozy”, or a “Welcome” pumpkin for the front step, but have fun and be creative!
We hope these simple ideas get you started on cozy-ing up your home decor for fall!
