When the cool air starts whispering the arrival of the season of cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice, we know it’s that magical time of year once again… fall! The changes outdoors call for a transformation in our living spaces too. Now is the time for us to bring that cozy warmth into our homes.
There’s no better canvas for your décor than your porch! You can spruce it up by hanging a fall themed wreath, adding a festive welcome mat, incporporating fall colors, and setting up a cozy seating area. String lights are also a great addition to make your porch as cozty as possible.
They’re pretty much the ultimate sign that autumn has arrived, right? But hey, don’t just stop at heirloom pumpkins. Visit your local farm stand and grab some corn stalks and hay bales for that extra fall flavor. It’s a super simple decor switch-up that packs a big punch. And, of course, you can’t forget the mums.
Vignettes for entry tables are always a great idea, but don't forget a bouquet of autumn colored flowers. Mudrooms are a great place to display firewood, or stash extra apples from apple picking in a basket!
Start with the most joyful part of autumn – the smells. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice – these are all fair game. A bowl of apples or a pumpkin-scented candle can add a fragrance that fills your kitchen with the spirit of the season. Spruce up your countertops with an autumn tea towel or fall vignette on a wooden tray, adding items such as mini pumpkins, acorns, and spices.
Autumn is a great time for DIY's. You can add a touch of fall by setting up a homemade apple cider bar. Include a spice rack with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves for personalized drinks. Decorate your station with mugs, pitchers, and lots of apple cider! Add a sugared rim station with brown sugar and caramel for an extra touch.
Add pops of color with throw pillows and throws, add pumpkins and gourds, and twinkle lights for a cozy glow. Pops of gold with marigolds and mums can liven up your outdoor space.
Let’s remember how adding touches of fall to our spaces just makes everything feel snug, vibrant, and downright cozy! Tap the link to read more and follow along with me on Instagram @ninahendrickhome!
