Now that Labor day has come and gone and the transition from summer to fall is upon us it’s the perfect time to bring the changing colors and natural elements of the outdoors inside to give your home a fall-like look. I have been looking for Fall decorating ideas for weeks now and would like to share a few of my favorite Fall makeover inspirations with you.

Bring the autumn season to life through seasonal candles. My absolute favorite candle season is fall, the smell of baked apple and pumpkin and spice are like a little bit of heaven.

The best thing about decorating for fall Is that you can harvest things from the outside such as acorns,leaves, moss, pine cones and tree branches to create decorative accents, garlands and centerpieces.

Create a display with seasonal foods such as a jar full of candy corns,  filling a bowl with floating apples or displaying a tray of autumn inspired foods such as pecans, pistachio nuts, berries or red apples

Decorate with Pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colors. You can create a unique display or incorporate them into an existing display to dress it up for fall.

Lantern displays are fabulous to decorate with, as you can tailor a lantern grouping for any season, but fall is my lantern season of choice.

Shift your throw pillows,blankets,  towels, place mats, curtains and other textiles to darker richer colors like hues of chocolate brown, burnt orange, eggplant and lipstick red.

Try using heavier fabrics, weaves and blends to bring in a more rustic tone. A personal favorite of mine is Burlap; by adding a burlap table cloth, throw pillows, picture frame, cork board or burlap wreath you are able to give your home a natural autumn like feel.

 A few other cozy fall fabrics that you can choose from are cotton flannel, ultra-suede, chenille, velvet and wool.

As an advocate DIYer I am planning to take on several Fall DIY Decor projects and look forward to sharing my stories and tutorials along the way.

Happy Fall, Y’all!
