As we enter the fall season in full swing, it’s time to decorate your home and property to get that cozy, autumnal feel for the holiday season. Whether you’re looking for ideas to spruce up your interior or are trying to perfect your outdoor fall harvest scene, we’ve got you covered with plenty of creative ideas.
Minimalism Goes a Long Way
For your outdoor décor, embrace a minimalist approach and see what you can do with it. A must for outdoor décor is vibrant pumpkins, which only takes a fun trip to your local store or farmer’s market. Aside from this, a touch of fall foliage in the form of a wreath is a welcome addition that adds fall style and sophistication with minimal effort.
Reflect the Essence of Autumn in Your Home
Expressing your personal style while embracing the fall season in your home is the perfect way to embrace what the season has to offer. One idea is to incorporate natural colours in various parts of your home to reflect an authentic fall ambiance. This can be done by adding colourful pumpkins, gourds and vases filled with richly hued leaves. For an impressive centrepiece that combines these elements, take your favourite pumpkin, hollow it out, and add an autumnal bouquet: include anything from violas, pansies, fresh herbs, or other tasteful fall foliage.
Bring the Indoors Outside
If you have a deck or large porch, consider transforming it into an idyllic dining room. Bring out a rustic picnic table and add some decorative gourds and a vase or two filled with pinecones or fall foliage to create a lovely outdoor setting. Consider including candles and upholstered chairs for an additional touch of sophistication.
Get Creative with Your Pumpkin Displays
There are multiple ways to make your collection of pumpkins on your front steps stand out even more. Follow classic carving methods to make timeless creations such as jack-o’-lanterns, all of which when illuminated from the inside give a warm, inviting glow to guests. Another option is to add a bit of personalized artistry to your carving or etching patterns. Carve a fun message into your pumpkin or etch a classic fall design. Etching your pumpkin creates an artistic, visually appealing look and also makes your pumpkins last longer than they would if carved.
