6 Ways to Sparkle Up Your Home This Fall

Leaves are changing, the air is getting colder, and the days are getting shorter. It’s that time of year when we turn our thoughts to decorating our homes so they match the season. This means that it’s time to talk about how to decorate your home for fall! If you need some inspiration on how to get started, this Sponge and Sparkle-approved guide will help you figure out everything from what seasonal decorations are right for your home!

1) Temperature down? Heat up!

Incorporate ways to heat up your decor! Get cozy with a fireplace and light some candles. Don’t forget to add pillows. This part is always exciting because pillows come in all shapes, sizes, textures, and colors. You can bring a lot of fall flair with the right pillows in each room, as well as with your backyard furniture! For the colder months, adding a weighted blanket is always helpful too. The weight of the blanket will help you sleep better and also make you feel more comfortable. Plus, when you’re not using it, it will look great on the couch or your favorite chair.

2) Incorporate fall colors.

One of the easiest ways to get your home ready for fall is by incorporating some of the colors of the season. Think oranges, reds, and yellows. You can add a pop of color with some new throw pillows or a fall-themed table runner. Or go big and paint an accent wall. Incorporating fall colors into your decor is an easy way to give your home a fresh look for the season. If you are not a fan of the bright reds, oranges, and yellows, you can always tone it down with duller tones like browns, tans, and maroon. These colors are a bit more neutral but just as festive.

3) Fall scent favorites!

A great way to make your home feel like fall is to incorporate some seasonal scents. You can do this by lighting candles in fall scents like pumpkin spice, apple pie, or cinnamon. Or, you can use a diffuser with essential oils in these same scents. Additionally, potpourri is another great way to add some fall fragrance to your home. If you prefer a natural alternative, you can boil cinnamon sticks, orange peels, and vanilla extract on your stove. This will allow the aroma to spread throughout your home!

4) Bring the outside in.

Fall accents really bring the outside season into your home! Adding wreaths and garlands is an easy way to add some fall flare. You can find these items at most craft stores or even make them yourself. You can pick fall foliage, like colorful leaves, sunflowers, berries, and so on. Adding some pumpkins, either real or fake, is also a great way to decorate for the fall season. You can put them on your porch, in your windows, or even inside your home. The pumpkins will last through Thanksgiving, as well! The hardest part about this project is deciding which pumpkins you want to buy! There are so many different styles, sizes, shapes, etc. The perfect pumpkin may be waiting for you just around the corner!

5) Halloween Decorations!

One of the best things about fall is all the fun seasonal activities. From corn mazes and pumpkin patches to Halloween parties and hayrides, there’s so much to do! And what better way to get into the spirit of the season than by decorating your home with some festive fall flair? Here are a few ideas to get you started on Halloween decorations – whether you like to be subtle or go all out:

1. Decorate with pumpkins, leaves, and straw – the basics – to embrace the fall season.

2. Opt for unique centerpieces such as jack o’lanterns, black cat ceramics, and so on.

3. Check out your local thrift store for unique Halloween pieces. But remember, as your local cleaners, we have to advise you to be mindful of your purchases here. Only buy things that you will want to store away for next year and reuse – do not create clutter!

4. Look for Rae Dunn holiday collectibles while you’re at it! You can use them and even resell them for a profit later.

5. Go all out with lighting. While you look into new lamps and lanterns inside your home, be sure to add some lighting outside for the young trick-or-treaters!
