Autumn is a season of bounty and harvest, a time when there’s a little bit of magic in the air. Bring the fresh feeling of fall into your home, and showcase the season with special autumn décor. From warm colors and cozy fabrics to elements of nature and the outdoors, it’s easy to create a seasonal scene throughout your home for autumn.
PUMPKINS, SQUASH, & GOURDS
From classic, jack-o’-lantern-style pumpkins to fanciful Cinderella pumpkins and multicolored gourds, you’ll find a huge variety of these fall favorites at local specialty stores such as Whole Foods in Fort Lauderdale. For an elegant vibe, opt for white “fairy tale” pumpkins, or create a feeling of plenty with a cavalcade of all different types.
FUZZY, WARM FABRICS
When autumn arrives, so too does the desire to snuggle up in something cozy. Soft wools, warm flannels, and velveteen fleeces are perfect for chilly fall evenings. Set out a couple of throws or blankets for cuddling on the couch during movie night, and continue the look with some furry throw pillows in your living area.
Get the real look and feeling of fire without the danger, melted wax, or soot with today’s new LED candles. These remote-controlled candles turn on with the click of a button, are made of real wax, and give off a credible flicker and glow. Some even feature wicks and flames that move and look completely real on first glance. Choose LED candles with a timer option, and you can set them to “burn” for a few hours before turning off.
Showcase the vibrancy of the fall season with blazing reds, brilliant oranges, rich golds, and warm browns. Decorate with metallic colors like bronze, copper, and gold to your palette to amp up the energy – or tone it down instead with inviting neutrals. Use the colors of autumn foliage for your inspiration.
Bring the outdoors inside your home with elements of the forest like raw wood furniture, tree branches, shiny acorns, pine cones, and nuts. Whether you choose real or faux, natural elements add character and charm to your home and create an appealing fall palette. Use forest décor on your mantle or dining table centerpiece, arranged in glass containers or displayed like a harvest scene.
FALL FLOWERS & FOLIAGE
Perk up your autumn décor with some fall foliage and few fresh bouquets of flowers. Seasonal favorites for fall flowers include purple and yellow chrysanthemums, purple and green potted kale, gold sunflowers, and orange Chinese lanterns. Finish the look with a few branches of fall foliage, and use leaves (real or faux) to create beautiful garlands, wreaths, and centerpieces.
