Labor Day weekend has passed, and summer is officially over. But don’t be too sad about the beach – fall brings new opportunities to decorate and celebrate! Here are just a few quick ideas to decorate your home for fall 2019.
If you’re planning to paint your home, pick out furniture or hang new curtains this fall, then consider using warm fall colors. We’re thinking deep reds and oranges, soft browns and fawn colors, with gentle shades of dark green.
According to interior design blog Italian Bark, caramel is set to become one of the most popular colors in 2020. Use this butter-soft shade of brown for upholstery, accent walls, or kitchen appliances. It’s a classic, laidback look.
Do you keep plants, or decorate your home with fresh flowers? Then this is an easy way to decorate your home for fall. Swap gaudy summer flowers for fall branches and leaves in rich colors.
Small squashes and pumpkins add a seasonal note to your home decorations, too – whether or not you carve them for Halloween! Try asking at your local farmers market or wholefoods store. Often, they have squashes which are too small to sell for food, but which work perfectly for home décor.
As we transition from summer to winter, get ready to snuggle up at home with cosy fall decorations and furnishings. Choose dark colors – like deep leather sofas or dark wood shelves – with splashes of bright, warming color. This is a great moment to get on board with the trend for bright copper appliances and kitchen details.
Finally, don’t forget that a candle can brighten up any room. Choose tall pillar candles decorated with seasonal fruits and leaves for a truly sophisticated look. And the right scent goes a long way – think woodsmoke, caramel apples with cinnamon, or even the infamous pumpkin spice.
