Fall is upon us. School is back in session. The mornings and evenings are now cooler. Football is again into full swing. We’re more drawn to the indoors as the days are getting shorter. Now is the perfect time to do a room makeover, change up the color or theme of a space, or just update throughout your home. Read on for fun fall ideas to make your home enticing to you and your family.
Pick one wall and paint it a deep, rich hue. Choose a bold golden yellow, vibrant red or burnt orange hue. This one wall will add an incredible new overall feeling to the space, and it may be all you need to do, besides . . .
Add accent pieces that match or compliment your new brightly hued wall. Lamps, pillows, frames, table tops, throws and more will all add to the fun.
Is is time for a new sofa, loveseat, chair or sectional? With the additional time indoors, fall is the perfect time to replace worn out furniture, or just those pieces that you’ve grown tired of. We’ve got so many styles and colors to choose from, all from name brands you know and love. Stop in and see us today, and be watching your favorite football team on your new sectional this weekend.
Nature always lends itself well to style. Set up a centerpiece with those pumpkins and gourds you found at the farmer’s market last week. Choose twigs from the yard to create a lovely conversation piece. As the leaves begin to fall, allow the kids to do tracings of them in vibrant colors, and proudly frame and display them in your home.
Pay attention to detail. New plates and placemats are a nice new fall addition. Go antiquing and pick up a piece or two that adds dimension and quirkiness. Replace your front door wreath with a bright fall colored one, or buy a new welcome mat.
Fall has a definite smell and taste. Just like Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks this time of year every year, so should the smells of fall be in your home. Apple pie, cinnamon crisp, and vanilla cream are all very fun fall smells that can change the whole dynamic of your home. Take advantage of the last of the garden greats. Cook up a large pot of chili and share it with the neighbors, or bake some homemade jalapeno poppers for the game this weekend!
