With another summer fading into memory, many of us are looking forward to cozying up to fall. If you're ready to bring fall into your apartment, here are some ideas to tastefully and affordably add a touch of the season to your decor.
Warm textures and fabrics
Fall decor is all about warm and cozy. Swap out brightly-coloured, summery throw pillows in favour of fall prints or warmer, heavier fabric like tweed, plaid flannel, faux fur or leather. You can still keep it colourful -- choose burnt orange accents for a sensational seasonal flare.
Fill up on fall foliage
Summer is the season for vases of fresh flowers. When fall rolls around, get into the spirit of the season by placing branches of fall foliage or wheat stalks in vases. Rather than clear glass, opt for vases or bottles made of coloured glass in warm, seasonal colours. Adding acorns to the bottom of the vase will enhance the autumn aura even more.
You can quickly add that cozy fall feeling to a living room or bedroom by tossing a warm throw blanket into the mix. Look for heavy plaids in seasonal colours, faux furs, chunky knits and cozy fringes.
Baskets of abundance
To accentuate the abundance of the season, try decorating with woven baskets overflowing with an abundance of what makes autumn amazing. Smaller baskets can be filled with apples, pears, pinecones, gourds, and other colourful reminders of the season. Place these smaller baskets on tabletops. Larger baskets can be placed on the floor. A basket by the front door is a great place to toss scarves and hats. A basket by the sofa makes a great place to toss cozy blankets when you're not snuggling up in them.
We hope that these seasonal decor ideas help to bring a touch of fall into your apartment.
