How to Liven Up Your Home Décor with Fall Colors

Last Updated on October 17, 2017

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.
