Welcome to my favorite time of year. I just love, love, love autumn! I love the striking colors of autumn-the beautiful hues of red, orange, yellow, and brown. I love the warm scents of autumn-glorious scents of apple, cinnamon, hazelnut, and pumpkin spice. I love the warm autumn days and crisp cool nights. I love Halloween with all the ghosts, goblins, and jack-o-lanterns. I love hayrides, bon fires, s’mores and clambakes. There is so much to love about this time of year so let this wonderful season inspire you!
Bring the warm colors of autumn inside. Spice up your bedroom with heavier linens in rich shades of pumpkin, russet, or brown. Swap out your lightweight summer pillows for ones in richer darker hues.
Freshen up centerpieces with pumpkins, gourds, flowers, and rosehips. Think outside the box when it comes to choosing interesting containers as centerpieces.
Autumn’s crisp cooler weather calls for layering up your home. Add cozy wool, cotton, or chenille throws over furniture where your family gathers. They can then wrap themselves up with warmth on those chilly nights.
Boost your curb appeal as you freshen up your front door or porch with more pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks, leaves, and mums. This will definitely add a festive fall look.
And don’t forget about your outdoor living space. Give your back porch or patio a boost with fall décor. There is still plenty of time to enjoy some outdoor entertaining so don’t neglect adding some festive décor to this area. It will add quite a nice touch when you have your next bon fire or clam bake.
“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face” –John Donne
