Guest Post: Ways to Decorate Your House for Fall

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing colour, and when you step outside you can feel a slight chill in the air. Yes, it’s hard to believe it, but fall is upon us.

Fall means plenty of different things: it means the kids are back at school, and it means Halloween is just around the corner. But fall is also a chance to redecorate your house – take a look at these ideas for inspiration when sprucing up your home for the autumn season.

Embrace Halloween

One of the biggest things the fall season brings with it is our children’s favorite day for candy: Halloween. While you don’t need to deck out your house with skeletons, cobwebs, and witch hats, you can certainly spruce up your house in the lead-up to All Hallow’s Eve. Make sure the hedges around your driveway and front door are neatly trimmed and looking their best – these are going to be centre stage, after all! Also, if you’ve been looking for a reason to redecorate the front porch, then now is as good as ever. Buy a new rocking chair or some patio furniture, and make the front of your home look as inviting as possible for all those children who want their nibbles and treats.

Cozy, cozy, cozy

Unless you’re living in the North Shore, QLD, or you’re planning to find new land for sale (Sunshine Coast  sounds tempting now, doesn’t it?), the arrival of autumn also means that winter is not far around the corner. Winter signals the arrival of chilly nights and hot chocolates by the fire, but this doesn’t have to be a bad thing at all – it just means you’ll be spending more time indoors than outdoors, so you should make the inside of your home as comfortable as possible. Buy some rugs to give your living room that warm and cosy feel, get a throw for your couch, and make sure to stock up on mugs for those hot drinks!

Seek inspiration from autumn hues

Putting rugs and throws in your home isn’t the only thing that plays a factor in making your home cosy for the fall and winter season. If you’re looking for a chance to repaint, then warm colours are your best friend – they make your house more inviting to guests, and calm and soothe your mind. Think creamy yellows and burnt reds as colour palettes for inspiration, or just look outside! If you’re not too sure whether a colour will work for your entire house, then just try it out as a feature wall. It’ll be sure to add a pop of life into your room, and change the entire feel of it.
