Contrary to popular belief, fall decorating ideas don’t have to be expensive or stressful.

6 Fall Decorating Ideas Every Homeowner Should Try

1. Low centerpieces

The centerpieces you put in your table can make or break the ambiance of the room. With the right centerpieces, it’ll be easier for your guests to hold conversations and bond with each other. 

You can achieve this by using low centerpieces and mixing silverware with acorns and classic china. These decors are not only pleasing to the eyes – they can also be very functional for you and your guests!

 2. Orange velvet accents

One of the easiest ways to decorate your home for the fall season is to invest in pieces that come in shades of orange.

Depending on your preference, you can opt to use one shade of orange throughout the entire home or mix lighter and darker shades of orange together. 

Instead of buying new seats for your living area, you can buy throw pillows in different shades of orange or use flowers, which is in the color orange. Using accents is a cheap and full-proof way of making your space feel and look like fall. 


 3. Layer accent pillows

Pillows are a staple in every household. You need pillows in your living area, bedroom, and oftentimes, in your deck or patio.

And while it’s common practice to use one print in the pillows of the room, consider spicing things up by layering different accent pillows.

You can use one which has a floral pattern, one with polka dots and another in a solid color. This trick will not only add color to any space of your house; it can also provide texture. 


4. Freshen up the front door

Impressions do last, and when it comes to your home – how your front door looks can make an impression.

If your front door is dull and boring, your guests will immediately think that everything inside your house is dull and boring, as well.

In some cases, they won’t even be interested if you have a front door like this. If you don’t want this to happen, take the time to freshen up your front door.

You can do this by applying a fresh coat of paint, hanging a wreath on your door or using pumpkins as decorations in the entryway. 


 5. Pop in some plaid

Most homeowners associate with plaid with fall. Whenever they see anything that’s printed in plaid, they would think that the fall season is just around the corner.

If you share the same sentiment, go ahead and add some plaid in different areas of your house. You can use a plaid blanket in your reading corner or throw pillows which are covered in plaid. Your options are limitless!


 6. Add some fresh flowers

Having flowers indoors can provide a long list of benefits. Aside from adding a pop of color to the space, flowers can also improve the air quality of your house. With this, you and your family will have lesser chances of developing allergies.

For you to depict the fall season inside your house, add some fresh flowers. If possible, look for flowers that come in yellow or orange hues, such as sunflowers and alstroemeria.

Place the flowers in a vase and put them in areas that usually receive a lot of traffic. Make sure that these beauts are visible to all of your guests and family members!

Above All…

Always Have Fun!

    The best is the four poster bed with the fairy lights… so beautiful. I love layering pillows and using different and yet complementary colored pillow covers. Adds so much warmth to any living space.

    Hopefully many will follow your idea for the front door.. It will only not help the house and the people inside it but also will brighten up the day of the people who passes by it.

    The season changing is one of my biggest motivations for deep cleaning/completely revamping my place. We’re in the midst of moving right now, so I’m keeping an eye out for pieces that will really stand out, define wherever we end up. I live in the city but I’ve always dreamed of having my own garden one day and love your tip about the fresh flowers. I need to make a trip to home depot to figure out which plants are the best for inside and will live the longest.
