Have no fear for we have the simple guide on how to make your home feel authentically like fall.
You do it with your clothes, but now it’s time to do it to your home. To truly have a fall home, you want your home to give off a sense of warmth and comfort. Now that the weather’s going down, you can finally pull out all of your throws, blankets, rugs, and pillows that have been neglected for the past couple of months. Lay them down on some couches, chairs, and beds. Layers not only increase physical comfort but are also pleasing to the eye.

When someone thinks about fall, one of the first things that come to mind are the colors of the leaves. Make your home part of the woodlands by incorporating fall colors. The rule of thumb is that you should stick with earthy tones such as brown, green, orange, yellow, red, or purple. However, you can add any color as long as it has a warm tone. Even if used subtly, this will give your home an instant touch of warmth.
Bring the Outside In.
While playing with earthy tones, bring in some natural resources such as tree branches. Although simple, this will instantly make your home feel rustic. Pumpkins, flowers, pine cones, and vines of leaves are great to place all around the house. Whether it’s on table tops, above the fireplace, or around the staircase, they’re eye-catching in any room. You can also create a focal point to your room with a floral or nature inspired centerpiece. A centerpiece can help guide your guests into your design flow.
Add a Little Shine.
Want to add a little chic warmth? Mix in some metallic, like brass, copper, and gold, for a little glimmer and shine. Copper and gold can give off a unique sense of warm to your home. However, you don’t want to overdo it to the point where it blinds your guests. You want to do it subtly with some vases, lighting fixtures, or decorations. The goal is to have some metallics peeking through to elevate your design.
