Fall decoration should add harmony and warmth to your home, not stressing you with a long to do list during an already busy time of year. Here are eight simple, quick and cheap cases of decorative ideas.
Incorporate dashes of a new color into your existing color scheme. Mix vibrant, rich red or autumn orange with neutral or contrasting colors such as beige, green or blue. If you like green, try a muted tone, which is a refreshing alternative to stronger colors. Start with budget-friendly changes, such as accent cushions, throws, table settings, carpets and candles that add drama and impact.
Bring nature by collecting wood products from your own backyard, finding them at your local home door store or the farmers' market or buying them online. Look for small twigs and branches, pinecones, moss and leaves. Place a combination of them in nice pots, interesting vases, wooden trays, rustic lanterns or hand-woven baskets.
Spice up your autumn dining room by adding some unexpected surprises to your dining table. Use ribbons, yarn or copper wire to tie a name card to leaves or small twigs to make festive placeholders for your dinner guests. Dress up your napkins with velvet straps for a traditional but festive napkin holder. Or use tassels or pearls in a modern metallic shade from a craft shop.
Enjoy the autumn season with land or everyday accents. Get homemade artwork, organic fabric and wooden accessories. Find cozy blankets to add texture and comfort to many spaces.
Select items that will remain current during the holiday, or it is easy to update, to save time and money. For example, twigs, candles and pinecones can be over the winter. After Thanksgiving, replace your autumn pieces with wreaths, garlands, false snow or Christmas decorations. You will give your interior further style.
Be classic by introducing garlands into your space, and you can make them or find them in many materials. Test wheat or grass for the fall, hell or pinecones for Christmas, or acorns and dried berries for the entire fall and winter seasons.
You can hang garlands in the traditional way or experiment with flat wreaths to show gourds, pumpkins, candles or other elements.
Celebrate the season with light, which is versatile and can be added to any space. Stay in neutral colors, then make simple changes of centerpieces, holders and embellishments as your mood or season changes. Installing LCD lamps is a low investment. Too high power, hang large Chinese paper lanterns or beaded Moroccan ships to add warmth.
Create a conversation space around your fireplace. Arrange seating to make the space more inviting and cozy. If you do not have a fire place, sit two comfortable chairs in a corner or corner, add candles to the ambient light and hold a serving tray to place mugs with hot chocolate.
