Bright leaves, festive scents, cooler weather… The best season of all is finally here! If you’re like us, you wait all year for the chance to add fall flair to your home, whether it’s a classic pumpkin, spiced candles, or a fall-colored centerpiece. Take a look at a few of our favorite ideas for autumnal home design and get inspired to turn your Regal home into the fall haven you’ve always wanted.
All about the deck. Pumpkins, gourds, clustered corn husks, potted chrysanthemums, hay bales, and falling leaves — add a few or all the above to your outdoor space and surround yourself with the fall vibes you love!
It doesn’t have to be orange. If orange, and rust aren’t your thing, use neutral, organic items like green, cream, and white gourds with pinecones, and sprigs of eucalyptus instead. Display them as a table centerpiece, on your favorite tiered cake platter in the kitchen, or across the mantel to get you in the mood.
Brown is back. For the longest time we have seen cool color palettes of lighter woods and gray finishes in the spotlight. But we’re happy to see that warm brown tones are making a comeback in the world of interior design, and the timing is perfect. Add richly-toned brown accents like a chair, pillows, lamp shades, or even candle holders, and pick up those colors in a beautiful Persian-style rug for ultimate fall coziness.
Just a little hint. Looking to add just a touch of seasonal flair to your home? Try decorating your foyer or entry. Place seasonal items on your entry table like a scented spiced candle, replace your key bowl or tray with one in a seasonal color, and add a basket with a blanket or layer with branches and leaves to complete the look.
Fireplace mantel makeover. Add wreaths, candle clusters, and vases filled with branches, and drape fall-themed pieces like wood beads off the mantel. Make sure you have balanced items on both the left and the right and voila, your beautiful fall mantel is complete!
Blankets and pillows. A few of our favorite go-to’s for fall decor are cozy blankets and throw pillows. And you don’t have to spend a lot! Go to your favorite discount home furnishing store and look for two or three pillows in your favorite fall colors or with a fun fall motif, toss them on your sofa with a cozy blanket to match, and you’re good to go. Not only with this look stylish, but that cozy blanket will come in handy on those chilly fall nights!
Fall-themed bar. Add some of your favorite fall elements to your bar or kitchen island. Fill bowls with small apples, kumquats, and cinnamon sticks and place on the bar for your guests to use in cocktails. Use wood chargers under plates, bring out the Moscow Mule copper mugs to add that coppery sparkle, and use cut greenery with twine as napkin ring holders to create the perfect woodland fall feel.
From all of us at Regal Homes, happy fall decorating!
