Embrace Color

Painting is one of the easiest and efficient ways to give a room a makeover. Currently, autumn-inspired hues are the must-haves on the market. Red is an great choice when it comes to fall colors. Whether it’s cherry, persimmon or cranberry, there is an abundance of red accessories -- such as rugs and pillows -- to coordinate, making red a bold, yet safe selection. Along with darker shades of burgundy and cinnamon, reds make a room feel both comforting and energizing, adding a feeling of warmth as the weather gets cooler.

Traditional neutral colors never go out of style, but there are a number of new additions to the category this season. Sand, wheat, mustard, stone and clay, are just a few of the new colors that blend nicely with most existing decor schemes. They also make a room appear larger and more open.

Using a few different but coordinating colors can be a great way to add dimension to your room and highlight decorative trims, furnishings, doorways and shelves. In a large room, different colors can divide space into visually separate areas. This is helpful in a room that serves multiple functions.


Painting isn’t the only way to give a stylish autumn look. Look for blankets, pillows and rugs in darker colors and textured fabrics to complement your furniture. Choose fabric patterns with metallic or beaded detail, embroidery, or Eastern influences. Besides providing an instant updated look, these easy additions will make your home seem warmer and more comfortable. Fill shelves, tables and bare corners with various-sized candles in seasonal scents like cinnamon, vanilla, apple and pumpkin pie. Or, use copper accents wherever possible for a rustic fall look.

Get Creative

Festive fall decorating doesn’t mean you have to utilize Halloween decorations. Seasonal favorites like pumpkins, gourds and autumn leaves look great in and around the home, but try using them in new and appealing ways. For a modern centerpiece, simply line up mini pumpkins, gourds or fruit on a long white platter, low basket or tray. Then add berry clusters, leaves or flowers for a festive garnish.

Fill small glass vases with seeds, dried berries or potpourri for stylish countertop or windowsill decor. Create elegant and simple fall wreaths by repeating one item like acorns, berries or miniature pumpkins in a circle and add a satin bow.

Any of these fall decorating tips are sure to add a feeling of stylish festivity to your home’s interior. The most important thing is to make sure your home is comfortable for you and your family.
