10 Ways to Transition Your Home to Fall
Switch Up Your Everyday Tableware
When you shop thrift stores and secondhand, you can find fairly cheap sets of dishes. Seasonal dishware on open kitchen shelves can be both functional and decorative. My kids know when school starts, the plates we eat from are going to be switched up! Another idea is to pick up some new placemats that look seasonal. It’s just fun to celebrate the new season with your everyday meals!
Add Seasonal Throw Pillows and Blankets to Your Living Spaces
So many of us have neutral-colored sofas and chairs. Throw pillows and blankets are an easy way to bring in seasonal colors and textures. I pick up vintage afghans and fall quilts at thrift stores inexpensively to bring a seasonal pop of color to our sofas. Pillow covers can easily be crafted yourself and/or be purchased. I like a mix of hand-crafted and store bought.
Trade Out Your Bedding
If you have a neutral-colored bedskirt, it’s easy to change your top bedding with the seasons. Comforters can enjoy a seasonal cover on the outside or you can switch up a quilt or bedspread. Add a few new pillow shams and it will look like you re-decorated your whole room!
Decorate Your Entry
Make the place you come and go through everyday seasonally welcoming! You can start with some seasonal door decor like a wreath, but you can take it to the next step, too. Add some seasonal fall foliage to your garden containers, a cozy throw on your outdoor furniture. Coming and going will be so much more fun!
Play Up Rustic, Textural Accessories
Fall is the season to feast on textural, rustic accessories for your decorating. Here’s a list to gather from around your home and add to your styling:
- all types of metals
- rustic, weathered wood
- woven materials
Fill Up on Fall Foliage
Faux Foliage is a mainstay ingredient to creating the fall season in your home. Adding texture-rich faux foliage to your vignettes mimics natures beauty happening outside your window. Add these textures to your fall styling:
- everlasting fall-colored leaves
- evergreen sprays
- acorns, nuts
- grasses, cattails
- fall flowers: sunflowers, mums, dried hydrangea
- pumpkins, apples
Decorate with Vintage Books
I give my vintage book stash a break in the summer when I need my decorating to be simpler. It makes me happy when I get to bring them out in the fall and add them in so many ways to all the vignettes. There’s so many ways to add their charm and character around your home!
Pick a Fall Bouquet
Fall is when the last of the flowers are showing off their beauty! It’s a great time to take a stroll in the country with your scissors and snip what’s growing on the side of the road. I even fill a bucket with water and drive to where I’ve seen wild sunflowers growing. You can pick up a bouquet from the market, too, but adding some wild goodness makes it even better!
Add Cozy Lighting and Pump Up the Fall Fragrances!
As the daylight wanes, you can bring some cozy to the chill by adding accent lighting. Tuck small lamps into bookshelves or even under your kitchen counter. Definitely pick up a fragrant fall candle, too. I usually get my Orange Spice Candle burning to get me motivated to decorate for fall! And when I’m cleaning while I decorate, I always use Mrs. Meyers fall scents!
