Take Your Decor From Summer To Fall

The air is crisp, the days are getting shorter, and the bounty of autumn’s harvest is inviting us all to get cooking and get cozy; as we transition ourselves into colder months, doesn’t it make sense to change up our decor as well?

For a long time, I didn’t think much about decorating my home for the seasons. To me, my stuff was my stuff and it didn’t make sense to collect more of it, but over time, I learned how to make certain elements of my decor the focal point with each new time of year, and in doing so I found a deeper appreciation for the seasons.

The transition from summer to fall is a dramatic one, in just a couple of months we’ll be hiding from the cold, so there’s no time like the present to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere that evokes the beauty of fall.

Summer To Fall

Go Green: Plants are by far one of the easiest ways to change up your decor from one season to the next. Whether it’s a potted plant or a gorgeous bouquet from the farmer’s market, seasonal greenery adds a burst of color and freshness to your space. If your green thumb is lacking, try picking up some dried flowers, which are available at many markets this time of year – they never wilt and can be used in a multitude of ways.

Opt for texture: Take a cue from your closet and display a combination of seasonal fabrics — like wool and velvet –throughout your home. Try mixing patterns, colors, and texture with oversize throws and soft velvet pillows. Toss a favorite sweater over the back of an armchair or hook a hat over the corner of your couch to add an extra bit of color.

Go natural: Autumn is the perfect time to display natural materials, like woven baskets or carved wood. Pull these organic items forward and allow them to be the focal point of a dresser or tabletop. A grouping of palo santo smells amazing and contrasts beautifully against a copper vessel, or display your jewelry against a naturally carved box.

I am welcoming Autumn with dried leaves and flowers on the walls, painted pumpkins in every corner, and switching out the throw pillows and blankets for cozier colors.

Dried flowers and velvet curtains would be so pretty!

Apothecary Candles in chamomile and fig, Rosemary and thyme burning at the same time gives off the most beautiful scent that makes me feel cozy and reminds me of fall. I’m also making some knit throw pillows to snuggle up with. I love fall!!

I love color so jewel tones and hues of rust are added in with pillows, throws, curtains. Flowers are must. Also getting my wood burning stove ready. I love the smell of burning wood.

Lovely tip! Gold and red tones are taking over this time of the year, and it’s just beautiful to mix and match them with other hues.

I love this idea. I just moved a month ago and got rid of a lot of things so I don’t have enough decor to switch out… But I might try this out by displaying some of my jewelry with more brassy copper tones for a more autumn feel!

I love this concept. I never decorated for the seasons much, except when it comes to the seasonal decor itself. Subtle changes seem to really be the way to go.

Also, I am ogling over that pumpkin (?!?!) jewelry box. I want seven!
