Falling for Fall: Tips for Decorating Your Space for Autumn

As we sadly close the chapter on summer, we welcome a new season (preferably my favorite) with open arms. In my opinion, autumn has to be one of the prettiest, if not scenic seasons ever. The foliage mixed with the transformation of the cool weather is undeniably superior. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, spring and winter but there’s just something quintessentially unforgettable about fall. As the days become shorter and fall makes its annual appearance, you want to make sure that your house, apartment or office looks the part. With just a few tips, you can have your space up and running before September rolls around.

Fallling for FallThe most important part about decorating your space for fall is identifying the appropriate color spectrum for the season. For summer, the color scheme was completely bright and effortless. For fall we’re going to see hues in bold and invigorating shades such as violet, emerald, cobalt, orange, and gold. Take some throw pillows in a color such as orange and pair them with gold accessories such as a rug or plush blanket.

Purple accents really create the perfect pallet for fall but are also equally beautiful. Take some fresh lavender or lilacs and place them in purple, blue, or orange jars around the house. If you cant find any fresh lavender or lilacs, opt for twigs instead. Twigs play well with the season and look just as chic in colorful jars scattered around the house. NOTE: Twigs also make the most beautiful center piece for dinner parties or special occasions.

Falling for FallWindow décor is especially important when redecorating. Orange is a huge color for fall so choose curtains entirely in the shade or featuring some form of it. If orange is a color you would rather not use then go with a shade in purple, yellow or brown. Remember, choose colors that are in the same color spectrum for autumn.

Falling for Fall Any way that you can incorporate the color orange into your space is much appreciated. As far as your bedroom goes, try accessorizing with orange and white sheets or a simplistic orange plush blanket. For a more sophisticated appeal, mix colors such as cobalt and orange or purple and orange for a bold feel that is simply invigorating.

Fallinf for Fall Pumpkins are an absolute must when transforming your space for fall. However, if you’re not keen on having pumpkins strewed around your house, a fun way to make them more chic is to decorate them with fun patterns and colors. Whether you decide to paint over them or add unique features, it’s a really fun project to complete over the weekend that literally takes no time at all.

I hope that these tips helped you a little to take your place from summer chic to autumn ease. Also, feel free to take the survey below and don’t be shy to send pics on how your decorating projects actually turned out. Happy Fall!

I am a journalistic enthusiast, born and bred in Washington, D.C. When I'm not busy meticulously constructing posts, I can be found burying my head in an epic novel, cooking a delicious mess in the kitchen, scouring local thrift stores, and spending way too much time binging on Netflix (Arrested Development anyone?). I cannot live without a good playlist (Billy Holiday is preferred), working wifi (sometimes not always working), and Dunkin Donuts coffee (caramel swirl is my go-to flavor). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to the email below. Happy Reading!
