I love love love fall.
And now that I have my own apartment, I love love love EVERYTHING to do with decorating it. And that includes bringing in some seasonal touches whenever the weather changes.
I know, that sounds like a lot of work. Growing up, “seasonal decor” included a major haul of tacky decorations from Party City, but those are definitely not what I’m referring to.
Here’s how to fall-ify your home in just three simple steps:
Bring the outdoors in
Bringing in the outdoors is key for any season, but especially when the weather starts to change. Reason being, when everything else is dying around you, it’s nice to have a little green plant in your cozy space that gives you a taste of better weather. Rustic elements, like wood, are also perfect for creating a warm, inviting atmosphere.
Add warmth with color, metallics, and textures.
Play around with different colors and textures! Think plaids, patterns, warm neutrals and even deep oranges and reds. I’m not usually one for a ton of color, but I love rotating a pop of it in with a throw or a pillow! Metallics (gold, of course) are also big for fall. Try incorporating it with a gold accent piece, tray, or lamp.
Switch up your scent
Scent is hands down the easiest way to make your home feel like fall. If you don’t have enough time to do tips #1 and 2 on this list, by all means–this tip is your jam. There are so many amazing candles out there, whether you like something more subtle or more bold.
