Fall is perhaps the most colorful season of the year, with its crisp cool air turning leaves golden, amber, and maroon. Pumpkins are ripening and bright oranges and yellows are popping up all around. This magical season provides the ultimate in décor inspiration.

So, how can you bring fall to life in your own home? Here are some fall home décor trends we’ve noticed and some tips for giving your home a splash of autumn:

Get ‘gourd’-geous

Baskets and centerpieces are the perfect focal point for a dining space. Consider replacing your usual décor with brightly colored fruits, pumpkins or gourds for dashes of seasonal delight.

Placing accent kitchen glassware on display is another great way to show a hint of fall home décor without taking away from the established ambience of your room. For a warm autumn touch, consider replacing black and white spatulas and any exposed kitchen tools with reds and oranges.

You can also easily create fall-inspired DIY candle centerpieces and take simple white candles to the next level.

Fall in love with autumn colors

The seasonal love doesn’t have to begin and end with centerpieces. A great way to fill your home with autumnal joy is to throw in some accent pieces. With this fall home décor trend, you can find beautifully patterned and brightly colored vases – small enough to fit on your kitchen countertop – which can give the heart of your home the extra pop of color needed to bring out the season.

Spice up your bathroom with cinnamon-colored hand towels – a simple swap that makes a dramatic difference from standard white or beige towels.

Bring the outside in

Brightly colored flowers are a great way to liven up any room. From a pristine white bathroom to a beautiful sun-filled kitchen, making an otherwise ordinarily sterile environment warm and inviting is easier than you think. Place a few yellow, orange and red arrangements throughout your house to bring the romance of fall into your home. Try placing a few bright tulips in a simple vase, or a large arrangement of sunflowers. You really can’t go wrong.

Autumnal aromas

Scent is one of the strongest senses tied to memory, so what better way to elicit fond fall memories than to light a scented candle?

Here are some of our favorites:

You won’t ‘beleave’ your nose. This leaf-inspired scented candle blends the enchanting aromas of Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar, and Warm Clove Spice – the essence of fall.

Autumn couldn’t be complete without this essential aromatic flavor – cinnamon. Cobblestone Candle’s Autumn Citrus and Cinnamon candle is sweet and spicy, providing the ultimate seasonal comfort and an autumnal ambiance you won’t be able to resist.

Fall is an exciting time as we transition from warm summer nights to the cool and crisp ones found in autumn. Longer nights mean spending more time in your home. Whether it’s cozying up by the fire or entertaining for the upcoming holidays, today’s homeowners are switching things up by swapping their light and airy summer looks for warm and cozy fall décor.

Before you break out the pumpkins, however, here’s a look at what’s in and what’s out for this season’s fall home décor.

What’s In

Warm Colors and Velvet Textures

Warm up the room by swapping out cotton pillows and throws for richly colored orange and red velvet ones. It’s an easy way to welcome the season – and your guests – while bringing a cozy feeling to your home.

Go Dark, Go Green

Dark colors like black and dark brown are making a comeback and this fall season is all about the dramatic. Dark green is a popular cabinet color choice for this fall and winter; this natural hue blends beautifully with almost any home décor.

What’s Out

Copper Furniture

Copper home accessories, along with marble and rose gold, have had their day. The new trend is shying away from these overly shiny pieces and moving toward classic, aged brass. If you’ve already invested in real copper fixtures or a copper farmhouse sink, however, your investment is safe, as these genuine accessories remain timeless and will hold their value.

Bland Furniture Sets

Generic furniture sets are on their way out. The new fall décor trend is to mix and match different designs and styles to create a one-of-a-kind look.

Brushed Metal

Brushed metals can give off an industrial look that designers say have seen their day. This fall, look for shiny, warm metals like bronze and gold, as these will add a new dimension of sophistication to your home.

Light it up
