I truly believe the best part of owning your own apartment, condo or home; is the opportunity you have to get creative with seasonal decor. I grew up in a home decorated to the tee, with each passing season. To say my mother was inspired by the seasons is an understatement…if only you could see our house come Christmas, it’s Spectacular inside and out.
So when it was my own turn to decorate our apartment for fall, I knew I really wanted to bring the natural aspects of autumn into our home. I wouldn’t say home decor comes naturally to me, but rather it’s something I’ve learned diligently over time. So keep decorating with each passing season and I promise something will click.
I believe the hardest part of home decorating comes from carving out your own sense of style, it takes some practice but I particularly like to keep things looking stately and understated. I bet you never heard those words paired together, but for me, it’s all about bold pieces of furniture and natural pieces of decor.
Anway, I figured our crew would throw together a quick guide to help you feel inspired. Below I’ve listed 5 ways to bring autumn inspiration into your home…
I love decorating my home with mums for a few reasons, but my reasoning behind purchasing this plant is that they are a hard plant to kill. Mums naturally take very little water, so if you forget to water them here or there; you’ll be okay.
Secondly, they look beautiful inside and out. I love seeing all the New England front doors garnished with mums, but I personally love having them inside too. I currently have one as a centerpiece on our coffee table, one quaintly placed on my bar cart and a third in my office. Bringing greenery inside is an affordable way to bring autumn inside.
I seem to have a ridiculous amount of dishware specifically fall themed, and while I don’t usually use this dishware year round, it really does make the home feel cozier. Some of my favorite fall dishware items are: TCC Pumpkin Mug, Pendelton Plaid Plates, Acorn Place Cards for my annual fall fest and copper mule glasses to sip hot apple cider out of. Having special dishware I pull out, year after year, come fall, really warms up the kitchen table.
3) Cozy Faux Fur Throws
I honestly live by these throws. My mom gave my brother, sisters and I a throw of our own a few years ago, and I just couldn’t help but invest in more. So I think Matt and I have a total of two faux fur throws in our home. One throw elegantly covers the couch and the second is at the base of our guest bed. Nothing says cozy fall nights in, like this throw. TRUST ME IT’S THE BEST!
Not only does candlelight bring in the perfect warm autumn ambiance, it also brings the rich fall scents to match. If you know me then you know, I light Bath and Body Works fall candles YEAR ROUND. The candles really set the mood, and my favorite scents are cider lane and sweet pumpkin, just in case you were wondering!
5) Natural Toned Vases
I always find that the decor in summer is usually white, blue and bright while autumn embraces a much more natural feel. When decorating for fall look for natural toned vases, trays, and decor. Some of my favorite looks are wood trays, metal vases, and copper. These natural earth tones really are understated making them super easy to take on and make them your own.
Okay, that’s that. Matt and I have been busy decorating for fall and I hope you guys are taking time out of your busy schedule to do so as well. It’s such a fun time to get creative and really budget friendly. Even purchasing a few baby pumpkins here and there will do. xx Aubrey
