Timeless Fall Decor Ideas for Your Home

When people mention fall decorating, your mind may immediately turns to pumpkins, Halloween, wreaths, and other stereotypical interior design ideas. However, there’s so much more to the harvest season than these archetypes. You can freshen up your home with timeless takes on fall decorating that will impress your guests and keep your spaces looking great from Labor Day to Thanksgiving. Check out these ideas for fall decorating you’ll want to use every year:

Fall Foliage Arrangements Throughout the Home

Take advantage of the gorgeous changing leaves by creating an arrangement using fallen branches with berries, pine needles, and a variety of leaves. Bouquets like these capture the autumn feeling and will last longer than traditional flowers. It’s a beautiful twist on florals that ties into this season and brings nature indoors.

Firewood as Decor

If you have a fireplace, firewood can be more than function; it can be a key decorative piece. Even if it’s not yet chilly enough to light a fire, bringing hardwood in sets the tone for the autumn season. Add some rustic charm and get ready to curl up in front of the fire as the days get cooler.

Family Photo Displays

The fall season brings with it many holidays, and with it, family visits. Go into the attic or basement and dig out your old family photos, and create a display or gallery wall of your favorite memories. Get some new frames or find vintage ones to craft a loving collection of pictures.

Layers Everywhere

It can get cold in the fall, especially in the Boston area, so stock up on throws and blankets. Find comfy wool, cotton, chenille, or even cashmere throws to place throughout the living areas of your home so your family and guests can stay warm and comfortable throughout the season. Layers are a great opportunity to incorporate new colors and textures into the space as well.

Candles Galore

While many people use candles throughout the year, fall is the time to break out candles en masse. Whether you’re into pumpkin spice scented candles, or you just like lanterns or hurricane lamps with pillar candles to create a cozy environment, you can’t go wrong. Just be sure to keep an eye on your candles for safety, no matter where you set them.

Autumn Colors

While certain colors are pegged as fall hues (think orange and red), you can experiment with various fun shades throughout your home. You don’t need to buy new furniture; you can add in new colors via accents and accessories, like blankets and pillows. Try mustard yellow, burnt orange, mellow green, and even sky blue to bring the fall season into your home.
