10 Unique Ideas For Fall Decoration To Embrace The Season

Fall is the season of warmth, the harvest season, and the season where the family enjoys the thanksgiving meal together. What better way to embrace this season than having a fall-decorated home to make it more welcoming, cozy, and soothing?

There are many ways you can decorate your home with fall-themed decorations. This fall, dare to be bold and different. Spice up the dull old pumpkin and lettered rugs look that everyone does on their porch. Be different from others.

Fall Decoration At Home

An intentionally fall-decorated home covers all living spaces; from a fall-themed living room, dining room, office, bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom, is not that hard. It should articulate autumn’s warm and vivid colors, combining nature with aesthetics and popping up the elements that instill an earthy-comfort feeling into your house. How do you do that? Here are the ten unique ideas for fall decoration you can implement in your home.

  1. Use Sherwin Williams Fall Color Pallete

First and foremost, one of the most important things when decorating fall-themed rooms is to choose a base color. You need to choose a neutral palette that compliments the fall colors of red-ish, bright yellow, or warm orange. Check out the Sherwin Williams fall color palette. They have the best overall color palette for the season that will fit whatever your other fall decorations are.  

  1. Let The Light In

A Fall-themed home is closely incorporated with a warm sunny tone. So, what’s the best way to elevate the color rather than letting the natural light in? The natural light from the sun is the best light you can utilize to enhance the color of your house.

Opening up the window treatments will allow the light to sink into your room gently. This great shade of warm light will illuminate the space in the morning and afternoon thus letting sunlight bask through your room in the daytime.

  1. Incorporate Nature

Fall foliage surroundings can also be used as your fall decoration outside your home. By simply having windows at the right angle, you can incorporate their texture and color into your fall decoration in your home.

Not to mention that the different hues in color will accentuate nature and make them seem like beautiful live paintings.

  1. Pops Up Some Colors

As we all know, fall-themed decoration is closely related to warm and fuzzy colors such as yellow, red, and orange. While some might think this is boring, as an Interior Designer I see this as an excellent opportunity to give a vocal point in the room.

  1. Texturize The Decorations

As nature has tons of texture, so should your room.  Using textures to decorate your home, such as a wool rug made from knitwork, dried plants or flowers, and metals with a lot of carving could be a great addition to your fall decoration at home.

  1. Warm Lighting

Not everyone is blessed with sunlight that can enter their home easily. That’s where the additional lighting comes in. Lighting is essential at home so when choosing the lighting for a fall-themed home, try to pick a natural to warmer color instead of cool white color.

  1. Warm Colored Aromatic Candle

A few different heights of aromatic candles can accent your fall decoration at home. Use odd numbers and colors that accentuate your decor. Having an aromatic candle with a warm color as a decoration for your fall-themed bedroom can also help you to sleep better.

  1. Use Wood

Adding wooden furniture or decorations can elevate the feeling of autumn inside your house. The brown color and the beautiful texture will give your house a feel of nature. You can incorporate wooden furniture like coffee tables, headboards, and chairs. You can add small decorations for your fall-themed bedrooms, such as framed mirrors, a floating bookshelf, or even a simple storage box.

  1. Put Layers Of Natural Elements

One of the best ways to elevate the feeling in your home is to make layers using a “natural” element. layer your bedding using different textiles in a fall color scheme, tablecloth layered with solid color napkins wrapped with a rattan holder, or layer blankets on your couch in varying colors and textures.

A different combination of layers will give your house a different yet elevated accent. This way, you can also play with your combination, utilizing all the decorations in your storage and seeing which pairing looks the best. 

  1. Flowers Never Wrong

Lastly, having flowers as your fall decoration at home is never wrong. But of course, you need to choose flowers that grow in the fall. The perfect mix of color and fragrance of the flowers you put in your house will enhance the autumn feeling in your house and heighten the ambiance, making it feel cozier and snuggly than ever before.

Conclusions

These ideas for fall decorations at home are easy to implement and incorporate into your house. Some need a little work, but the others are as easy as adding a new substance into your room. As always, don’t forget to have fun while decorating your house, and make sure the one you choose is the one that makes you feel most comfortable.

Drapes vs. Curtains

Arguably, no other design element sparks as much debate as window coverings. Particularly drapes versus curtains. The common ground with either choice is they offer a unique impact on your overall design.

Both curtains and drapes can speak directly to your traditional or modern design tastes. Manufacturers have done a great job in updating these age-old elements to represent ever-changing interior designs. Drapes and curtains provide artful decorative appeal while providing unmatched function in your home.

Properly hung, they can reshape a room adding height, balance, and airiness, and conversely, they can make a large space feel more intimate. Heavier fabrics offer insulation almost twice that of window blinds while improving acoustics and buffering noises.

Window hangings offer privacy and natural light control. If you are looking for versatility curtains and drapes are affordable, fashion-forward, easy to care for and maintain. They give you the opportunity to make bold statements or provide clean simple lines to any room.

Curtains and drapes can easily help you polish your décor. Both options can frame the perfect view or avert the eye from a less than the pristine outdoor scene. They are also a good choice to change out when you want to freshen up a room without doing an entire makeover.

The Benefits of Planning Ahead

Recently, one of our adored previous clients ordered a new sofa. She found exactly the one she wanted at a well-respected furniture store. She chose each piece of her sectional sofa to perfectly fit her space and taste. She was even able to take advantage of their Presidents Day sale. At the point of sale, she happily made her purchase…


Only to find out her sofa will arrive in July! She was crushed. On the bright side, she will be sitting pretty at the end of the Summer. We share this with you as a cautionary tale. The days of picking up customized furniture same day are now rare. For fully customized furniture the wait (while worth it) will be longer than expected.

That’s why the team at Design On A Dime encourages you to plan ahead. Planning ahead has so many benefits: budgeting is easier, stress is reduced, and more thoughtful choices can be made. If you are considering redecorating for the holidays, now is the best time to plan, we can help! You can take advantage of summer sales while giving yourself and our design team plenty of time to bring your vision to life. Also, our decades of experience work in your favor.

We know how to artfully fete the waters of supply-chain irregularities with unique solutions… Slipcovers, reupholstery, and supple fabric paints are all exciting options. 

We see a furniture update in your future. Let’s start now!

Keep It Simple, Keep It Clean

The key to the elegant design is keeping things simple and clean.  Focus on highlighting textures, patterns, color, size variation, vertical and horizontal details that really shine in a small space.  Design rule of thumb, which in my opinion is really a guideline, is odd numbers when clustering your items.
