Earlier, we covered the first 5 in this two-part series of fabulous fall decorating ideas. Here are the remaining 5, which are just as great when it comes to getting your home prepared for the upcoming fall season.
6) Add color with pillows. The great thing about accent pillows is that they can be changed out easily for the seasons. Stores this time of year are filling their shelves with fall-themed pillows. With that said, making accent pillows can be relatively easy, so if you’re feeling crafty, dive into a project. Picking your own fabric and doing the work yourself is a surefire way to get exactly what you want for your fall decor.
7) Deck your walls for fall. Another simple way to decorate for fall is by changing out the pictures on your wall. To create a bold fall focal point, shop for thrifty frames of assorted sizes and then fill them with pressed leaves, black and white photos, and fall sentiments.
8) Have fun with paint. Paint is a wonderful thing. With paint, the outdated can look updated and the old can look like new. The great thing is that paint can be used on so much more than the walls inside a home. Today, trends of bold front doors and painted furniture are everywhere you look. Check out Pantone’s fall color report to see the great palette they’ve put together. Those colors, or any color at all actually, can have a really big impact even when added to the smallest item.
9) Incorporate new fabrics. Even if you don’t have neutral furniture, incorporating new fabrics into your home for fall can work. Easy ways to incorporate new fabrics would be by changing out window treatments, or accent pillows and table dressings. A larger project would be to reupholster or slipcover a piece of furniture like a chair. Seasonal fabrics are often limited at department stores, but you should have no problem finding something you like by visiting your local fabric store or purchasing online.
10) Mason jar sconces. There are surprisingly more uses for Mason jars than just canning food. To make quick wall sconces for fall grab some vintage jars and some twine. Fill the jars with cinnamon sticks and LED candles for a warm glow. Once filled, suspend them from cup hooks in the ceiling.
