Fall in Love with Your Home

Fall is here, and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s the season of family, football, food, and festivities. And with a change in season comes a change in home décor. Pumpkins, warm colors, garland, and candles are just a few of the items to add to your list before hosting any gameday watch parties or holiday dinners. Check out the tips for more fall décor ideas to ensure your home is warm and welcoming this season.

Front Porch

The front porch is one of the first things guests see when arriving at your home. It is an important space that is always on display, which means it deserves special decorative attention. Now that fall is here, there are plenty of ways to spice up your front porch that will have you and your guests feel at home before even walking inside. Starting with the front door, you can never go wrong with a leafy wreath, such as this faux seeded eucalyptus wreath, to bring sophistication and holiday cheer to the exterior of your home. Another way to bring in some seasonal flair is by introducing fall colors to your porch with pumpkins and flowers. Try incorporating a stylish planter for your flowers such as this tall black planter from The Home Depot. Additionally, not only is a doormat great for avoiding shoeprints in the house – it can add extra charm to your front porch. A great way to style a doormat is by layering. Check out this checkered doormat from Target to layer under a smaller, solid-colored mat.


The fireplace is an interior focal point. Bringing in elegant, yet cozy décor to this space is important in creating a welcoming area for family and friends to gather. The mantle is a perfect place to add some festive framework to your fireplace such as greenery or garland with miniature pumpkins, candles, or pinecones. Add a chic, effortless touch my leaning a mirror or adding a vase with pampas grass. One of our favorite ways to decorate the base of the fireplace is by creating a sitting nook that invites you to curl up with a hot beverage and enjoy the fire on a cool fall day. Design a comfortable space in fall fashion with a cozy accent chair, a knit throw blanket, and a rust colored throw pillow. Place a woven basket in the corner to hold extra blankets and pillows for the family to share.

 Coffee Table

Another area that sets the scene for gathering with family and friends is at the coffee table. Often an overlooked piece, a coffee table can really tie a room together and showcase your unique personal style. A coffee table is a great seasonal transition piece to highlight new trends and colors in your living room. For fall, we love adding wicker, candles, and introducing warm tones to create a soothing style. You can achieve this look with décor such as this terracotta vase, rattan decorative tray, and ceramic jar candle. And don’t forget pumpkins! Pumpkins are the face of fall and you can never go wrong with adding a few here and there.

Backyard Picnic

Now that we have outlasted the scorching heat of summer, we can finally embrace the cooler fall weather. And what better way than a picnic in your backyard! Enjoy the nice breeze, changing leaves, and warm colors of fall with your family over a nice picnic meal. It’s easy to do and doesn’t require much planning. Set the scene with some fall decor like pumpkins, lanterns, flowers, and a few blankets to sit on. Pack a charcuterie board of nuts, grapes, cheeses, crackers, and jams into a cute wicker basket along with your favorite picnic foods. Bring festive napkins and some mugs with a thermos of hot apple cider to sip on. This is a perfect activity that will allow you to enjoy the new season without leaving the comfort of your home.

Dining Table

There are so many wonderful things about the fall season. One of our favorite activities is gathering around the table to celebrate holidays and share family meals. Whether you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner or a football watch party, your dining table should balance elegance with comfort. This may seem tricky, but a good way to accomplish this is by incorporating neutral and earthy tones, simple patterns, and mixing sleek and soft textures. Achieve this style with sophisticated décor like this taper candle set along with rattan placemats. Throw on a neutral-colored table runner and some garland to complete the look.
