We love summer, don’t get us wrong, but Fall issuch a vibe. Cue the chunky sweaters, apple spice candles, and pumpkin decor- because we are so ready for our favorite season!
Whether it be spending more time baking, cuddling up with your favorite book, or binging scary movies on Netflix, there’s something about this season that makes you want to cozy up and spend more time at home.
So, it’s time to put away the lightweight sheets and bring out all the warm, cozy textures. Let’s look at some easy ways to transition our home’s for Fall.
Swap Pillows and Bring out the Throws
Possibly one of the most basic ways to transition our homes from Summer to Fall is to swap accent pillows. Say goodbye to cool cotton and lace, and hello to richer textures like faux furs and knits. Instead of cool neutrals, think bold, warmer colors when choosing accents for Fall.
While you’re at it, go ahead and bring out those comfy plush throws you’ve had stacked away in your spare room closet all summer. Swapping decor elements like pillows and blankets is a seamless starting point for infusing warmer textures and colors into a space.
Say "yes" to Leather Furniture
Speaking of Fall textures…
This article wouldn't be complete without a mention of leather. Not only is leather a perfect texture for Fall, but it adds an element of soulfulness to a space, instantly making it feel warmer.
When it comes to decorating with leather, it’s best to pair it with soft accents. For example, say you find a gorgeous leather chair you want to add to your living room- pair it with a faux fur throw or soft pillows for the ultimate Fall look.
Decorate the Front Porch
Decorating the front porch or front door is a fantastic way to celebrate the commencement of Fall. You don’t have to wait until Halloween to spice up the entrance to your house. Think fall foliage, wooden decorations, and white pumpkins. These elements of decor also lend an easy transition into Winter- just swap the fall foliage for winter greenery when the time comes!
Wreaths are seasonal staples that bring style and character to the front door. They are an easy way to dress up your front porch area for Fall, with many different options of styles to choose from. Check out our latest article for fall wreath inspiration for your front door.
Decorate with Fall Foliage
We love incorporating plenty of greenery and fresh flowers into our decor, but fresh flowers aren’t always practical or accessible. The solution? Real Touch Faux Flowers and Foliage.
Faux Fall foliage is a great way to infuse Fall vibes into your home. From orange pampas grass in tall glass vases beside the fireplace to sprigs of golden wheat and fall blooms ensemble in a centrepiece for the dining room table, there’s so much you can do with faux flowers and foliage.
If you don’t know how to decorate with faux flowers they can look a little tacky, but there are a few simple tips and tricks to follow that will actually make your faux flowers look real in this article.
For high-quality faux flowers and unique vases, opt for an independently owned home decor store with an emphasis on sustainability and supporting local artisans, like Home by Zinnia’s in Scotts Valley, California.
Throw more Candles into the mix
Candles are a year-round staple to create warm and cozy vibes at home. However, there is a key difference when it comes to decorating with candles for Summer, and decorating with candles for Fall. When transitioning your home for Fall, add more candles to the mix to create clusters of candles (a cluster is more than three).
Clusters of candles make more of a statement than a singular candle in the centre of a table, for example. Mix various heights and widths of candles for the ultimate Fall look. We also like throwing in more texture to the mix by using candle holders made from metal and wood.
