Fall-Inspired Home Decorating Ideas

Posted by Treetopia in Home Decorating with Treetopia

While fall isn’t as popular as spring when it comes to decorating, the beautiful colors that come with the season inspires many people to spruce up their homes. In fact, there are a host of ideas to bring in the spirit of autumn. Here are some to get you started.

 

Go Orange

Whether in stripes or solid hues, add a punch of orange to furniture and accessories.  If you’re planning a change in furniture, go for an orange dining set for a chic look. Remember to choose different shades and make sure the brightness suits your taste and overall design. To balance off the orange, mix in rusty reds, yellows, and browns. Turquiose and pink are also great colors to add. Red and orange stripes, for example, create a retro feel when mixed with hints of turquoise. Consider these colors for your wallpaper or accessories.

Color-Coordinated Furniture

Use your furniture as the base color for bright accessories. If you already have a vibrant sofa, use simple throw pillows with fall-inspired prints. Brown or beige furniture works well with orange and yellow accents.

Neutral tones that can be maximized in fall are those made of natural fiber, like a rattan chest that doubles as a living room table or a brown burlap armchair.

Nature-Inspired Prints

From flowers and leaves  to birds and butterflies, nature-inspired prints are perfect for autumn. Curtains or wallpaper with orange and pink flowers or leaf prints work well in bedrooms and living rooms. Add simple white cushion covers or bed covers with bird or leaf prints. Another great way to brighten the living room is by placing a plush rug with nature prints or an orange-based design.

Decorate with Flowers and Fruits

Fresh flowers in tall orange vases do wonders in sprucing up a bare cabinet or side table. A basket of oranges and lemons or a layer of pumpkins serve as beautiful table centerpieces. A strawflower wreath on the door is a welcoming sight for guests.

Put Up an Orange Tree

Orange Christmas trees reflect the beautiful color of trees during autumn. Simply put a traditional size or a mini tree in the living room or entryway to usher in the vibrancy of the outdoors. For small spaces, opt for slim trees like Treetopia’s Bunny Delight Pencil Tree which is tall, slender, and comes with clear lights. What’s great about these trees is that you can leave them up until Christmas and redecorate for a fuss-free holiday decorating.

You don’t have to overhaul your entire home to reflect the beauty of fall. Adding small pieces of decor is enough to exude a touch of autumn bliss in any home design.
