13 Unique and Stylish Ways to Revamp Your Home for Fall
Are you ready to give your home a Fall makeover?
The transition from Summer to Fall is the perfect excuse to update with fresh accessories or a couple statement pieces. We’re all guilty of using some kitsch items in our Fall decor. The trick to a great seasonal design is to be traditional, yet unique and with-the-times. It’s all about finding fun ways to bring your personality and style to life without scouring the aisles of your local big box stores!
Here are 13 examples of stylish fall decor:
Adding some natural wood gives this space a cozy, log cabin feel.
The easiest way to change a space with the seasons is to swap out pillows and fabrics, along with a few details like the apples on top of reading material placed on the tables above. If you love sunset tones in your home, take it an extra step and paint your walls. The orange color used on the walls above adds a touch of warmth and fun to the room, without overpowering the space.
For daring pops of color without the total overhaul commitment, swap out a few statement pieces! Or take that old discarded piece of furniture from your family’s home and paint or lacquer it for a whole new look. Add fun, updated drawer pulls and voila, a new piece for hardly a dime.
Seasonal touches like a cozy throw or holiday flowers are subtle, without taking away from the current style of your space. Simple and effective! And check out the way this throw is “thrown” over the chair. This is the way to do it… you gracefully fold and throw it over but then add a pillow to hold it in place so it looks just right.
For red-brick homes, a sunset color scheme could end up adding a bit too much orange and red to your space. Go instead with a toned-down green or deep blues!
Replace an accent wall’s framed images with ones that have a Fall theme for a simple and fun seasonal update.
The side table, pillows and coffee table above fit in perfectly with this transitional space! Seasonal decor doesn’t have to be traditional.
Plan on having guests? Set up a decorative table. The above design is beautiful, while not being overly”Fall themed”.
If you decide that traditional Fall colors aren’t your style, pick up some lanterns or new light fixtures for a more unique twist. How pretty is that dining room above? No orange in sight! But what I really love about this space above is the use of the re-purposed wood on the walls. This look is very popular right now and there are so many options. I love the dynamic use of the wood on the diagonal in this space. Stay tuned because we are going to focus on lots of re-purposed wood in the blogs to come. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of it!
Although we concentrate on interiors, your exterior is an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to setting the personality and feel of your home. Don’t be afraid to mix colors and have fun with it. The design above is warm, inviting and eye-catching.
For a traditionally warm feel, use candles. There is nothing that puts you in the Fall spirit quite like a beautifully set table in a candle-lit room. Your family will be spending more time indoors, so make it cozy!
Wicker baskets, pitchforks, pumpkins and antlers set an amazing Fall tone. Mix pops of color, wood and thrift-store finds for a rustic vibe. The room above draws the eye and is a total conversation starter. The best places to find these fun accessories in the fall are the Fall Arts and Craft Fairs. Check your local newspapers for events. They are worth going to and can be a lot of fun.
When in doubt, just add leaves.
