Fall Home Décor Accents That Add a Cozy Fall Touch
In Loveland, we are officially in the throes of the fall season. The days are getting shorter, the air is getting crisper, and already, there are more leaves on our lawns than in our trees. Of course, just because things are getting cooler outside doesn’t mean we can’t warm things up inside our homes with fall home décor. Here are a few Loveland home décor accents and furnishings that will create a cozy fall touch to virtually every space.
Bring Texture to Your Dining Room
Snuggling up at the dinner table can feel relaxing and luxurious, making every dinner feel special. Drape just a few blankets over your chairs and place pillows on your seats and benches to make your dining room a place your family will love spending time, even in between meals. Bonus Note: for an added decorative touch, arrange various sized gourdes and squashes on your table for an organic, eye-catching centerpiece. When you’re ready to dine, set your table using outdoor springs, branches, and berries to further the fall theme in the room
Looking for a way to make your windows, doors, and even bare walls look and feel more inviting? Consider hanging seasonal wreaths in some (or all) of these spaces. You can find wreaths in all shapes and sizes and they can be made out of virtually any material to pull together the look of a room. Whether you want an all organic design with actual twigs and foliage or prefer a synthetic layout with faux fruit and leaves, a quick visit to the local craft store is usually all it takes to find the perfect wreath to dress up empty spaces in your fall home décor.
Create a Custom Chalkboard
There’s something about a chalkboard that gives every space that autumn, back-to-school feel. Use Annie Sloan chalk paint in a rich, fall color around the board’s frame. Just a single coat is usually all it takes to transform your original piece into something fresh and new. Once you’ve hung your new chalkboard, add various seasonal themes and messages on the board. You can even let your little ones create one-of-a-kind autumn artwork on the board for a fun, festive touch.
Make a Pumpkin Centerpiece
Many people don’t realize that you can actually use real pumpkins as a centerpiece vase. Cut the top off the pumpkin, clean out the seeds, and voila – you’ve created an organic vase that can be used to showcase a beautiful arrangement of autumn flowers, plants, and sprays.
Change Up Your Bedding
Lighter linens and duvets are perfect for summer slumber; however, once fall hits, it’s officially time to transform your bedroom into a snug and comfy sleeping nook. Mix plaids and flannel throughout the space to create a cocoon-like vibe that offers the perfect place to hibernate during the colder fall nights.
Introduce New Kitchen Accents
Yes, we all love a white kitchen with pale accents, especially during the warmer seasonal months. However, autumn delivers an excellent opportunity to add a few new accents that feel like fall. One favorite color this season? Caramel. Somewhere between beige and chocolate, caramel adds visual texture and interest in the kitchen, particularly when used in smaller doses like with canisters, containers, and utensil holders.
Pick Apples (Kind Of)
Looking for a virtually effortless fall display for your interior surfaces? Clip a few crab apple branches from your backyard. Strip away the leaves from the branch (keeping the fruit on the limbs). Place the branches in a simple vase for an instant arrangement.
Include Your Front Porch
Many people overlook their exterior spaces when making some fall home décor updates to their home. However, just a few decorative touches can encourage you and your family to spend more time on your porch. Create a sitting area using a rocking chair, love seats, or outdoor sofa. Arrange each piece with thick, soft blankets and plush pillows. Finally, add mums, seasonal planters, and pumpkins for a final look that gets everyone gathering together outside (with warm apple cider, of course).
Go Beyond the Pumpkin
We all love decorating our interior and exteriors with various pumpkin accents. However, fall abounds with natural items that make beautiful accents to any home décor. Cornhusks have been steadily gaining popularity as an option for both indoor and outdoor spaces. Readily available at both farms and craft stores, cornhusks can be used to create garland and wreaths that are perfect for wrapping around doorways, porch posts, and mantels.
