Trendy Ways To Update Your Home Décor For Fall 2016

As temperatures begin to dip, we tend to retreat to the comfort of the indoors in order to beat the cold. Instead of mourning the loss of those warm summer days, focus on creating a warm, comfortable atmosphere in your home. It’s time to embrace the changing season by updating your home with rich fall colours and cozy décor. Whether you want to bring new textures or welcoming autumnal scents into your space, here are a few easy ways to revamp your decorating statement this autumn.

Throw Pillows: 

Changing your throw pillows is a simple way to alter the entire look of a room. Swap out lighter summer hues for pillows in darker shades like burnt orange or espresso to instantly make your room in tune with the season. This tip works for both the living room, the bedroom or anywhere in your home with a couch or comfy chair.

Area Rugs: 

If your home has hardwood floors, the addition of plush area rugs can instantly create a warmer atmosphere that will surely be welcome as the nights grow colder. For a particularly cozy touch, try layering multiple area rugs in complimentary shades.

Seasonal Centrepieces: 

If you really want to embrace fall, try using the season’s signature golden leaves as a decorative touch for your table. Swap out traditional floral centerpieces for mason jars or vases filled with faux-leaves for a cheery seasonal touch. If centerpieces aren’t your thing, you can still incorporate autumn nature into your home with a wreath of leaves or seasonal greenery such as a Japanese maple plant.

If, like many of us, your home does not come equipped with a fireplace, a plentitude of candles are the next best thing. Make up for the shorter daylight hours by lighting candles in all shapes and sizes. Scented candles in seasonal scents like pumpkin spice or cinnamon chai help to usher the season into your home, and capture the festive fall spirit in the air.
