Pumpkin spice lattes, colorful leaves, leather boots, and warm apple pie are just a handful of things that instantly bring up thoughts of fall. I’m sure you have some of your own favorites to add to that list as well. I'm sure it's no surprise, that there are other items that represent the season when it comes to home decorating!

Knowing what those items are and how to put them to use can be extremely helpful when it comes to enhancing your seasonal decorating. Incorporating the following "ingredients" into your decor will have your home looking delectably decorated for the season. Out of ideas this year and need to add some new pieces? Or maybe you are tired of that colorful plastic decor that you throw out each season and finally ready to invest in long term pieces. Sure, you may decide to store some of them for part of the year to decorate for another season, but these classics will last as long as you choose to keep them and will wow your guests each time you pull them back out.

Pillows and throws are a super easy way to bring in color and comfort to a space. To really warm the place up, toss them onto any and all seating areas in your home. Your home will be oozing with so much comfort it’ll be hard to resist sitting down and snuggling up.

One way to ensure that you always have seasonal pillows on hand, have some covers custom made. This allows you to swap them out whenever you need to without having to rush out and buy new ones. Pillow covers are easy to store, easy to clean, and easy to use each and every year.

Be sure to check out our selection of fabrics and pillow inserts so you can have covers that reflect both the season and your style.

2. Branches and Leaves

Step outside and you’ll see that natural elements are available at our fingertips. When the leaves start changing colors, grab your shears and snip off some branches. Fill a vase with them and enjoy. Adding a simple accessory such as that may not seem like much, but it really does make a seasonal impact. Want something for the wall? Gather a collection of leaves in various colors and shapes, press them, and then put them on display in some frames.

3. Essential Hues

We know the traditional colors of autumn to be brown, red, orange, and gold. Not only are they classic, they are essential if you want the space to look and feel seasonal. This doesn’t mean you can only use those colors. Quite the opposite in fact. Jewel tones, such as deeper shades of green, yellow, blue, and red are other alternatives you can choose from. For even more ideas, check out Pantone’s fall color palette. You’d be amazed at how stunning their non-traditional fall picks will add some dazzle to your season. When picking colors, aim for rich ones, placing them in unexpected spaces. To keep the space from looking overwhelmed, incorporate white or soft cream so the eye has a place to rest.

4. Fireplaces

As temperatures begin to drop, it’s time to bring the focus back to indoor living and entertaining. Make the fireplace the focal point of the room by positioning your furniture toward it. It doesn’t get much more enjoyable than gathering with loved ones around a crackling fire. If you don’t have a fireplace, consider purchasing an electric one. They aren’t as effective as a built-in fireplace, but they can still bring an additional layer of comfort to the space by taking the chill out of the room.

Rugs complete a room, but layering them takes it a bit farther. There are several benefits to layering rugs. Layering helps you define a space and highlight scale better. It allows you to bring in extra textures. It also gives you the opportunity to incorporate more eye-catching contrast. Try layering a small earthy rug on top of a larger plain rug and see what a difference it makes. The doubling up underfoot not only adds an extra layer of comfort, it adds extra style for fall.

6. Reclaimed Wood

Some exposed wood throughout the space can really make your home have that autumn feel. There are unlimited ways on how you can use it throughout the space. Keep it simple with some shelving or a tabletop or opt for something bigger like a statement wall covered in it. It doesn’t really matter how you use it, reclaimed wood, paired with seasonal colors, will reflect the beauty of fall with ease.
