Y’all know how much I love seasonal decorating.  For me it is an important part of making my house a home and embracing gracious living.  Plus, there is no better way to subtlety change up your home decor than by adding seasonal touches.

With Simply Seasonal this week, we’ll be talking about getting your house ready for autumn and spilling our secrets to make your house a home this season.

Fall at the Front Door

Fall Decorating Tip No. 1 – Decorate the Front Door

Adding seasonal decor at the front door is an absolute must.  Not only does it offer the first impression to guests, but it also makes the neighborhood more festive.  Plus, coming home to colorful pumpkins and mums is way more charming.

You can go all out with a bountiful display of pumpkins and gourds or keep it more simple with an elegant autumn wreath just be true to your decorating style.

Fall Decorating Tip No. 2 – Layer Texture

Using varied textures in your seasonal decorating adds visual interest and dimensionality.  Just take a look at the pumpkin urns above.  Adding different textures with the fall berries, leaves, and the golden tinged branches made this grouping more interesting and appealing.

Texture is also important to making your home feel more cozy for fall. So get out those fuzzy throw blankets!

Fall Decorating Tip No. 3 – Choose a Theme

Have you noticed the decorating theme in my fall home tour yet? It’s gingham!

I recommend picking a specific pattern or color palette as a theme to use throughout your fall decor.  A theme will help tie your spaces together, creating cohesion from one room to the next.

Instead of using the exact same gingham everywhere, I adapted this theme to each room. So the gingham at the front door is black and white to go with the house colors, while in the dining room I used blue gingham plates.

Fall Decorating Tip No. 4 – Get Creative and Have Fun with DIY

Seasonal decorating can get expensive, especially if you buy all of your fall florals (wreaths, garland, centerpieces) pre-made.  Instead, try creating your own.

For this fall home tour, I did two main DIYs: the cinnamon broomsticks on the front door and the linen plate chargers on the dining room table.  I dressed up the cinnamon broomsticks by spraying them gold and adding cotton boll stems, berry sprigs, ribbon, and fall leaves.  Learn how I made the chargers here.

Fall Decorating Tip No. 5 – Make an Outdoor Space Cozy

Crisp, cool fall mornings are one of my favorite parts about autumn.  I love to bundle up and take my coffee outside to soak up the fresh air, so I wanted to make our balcony more cozy for the season.

To do this I made a seating nook in one corner, adding a pillow and end table. Then I laid a casual table on the patio set, and tossed a plaid blanket over one of the chairs.  Mix in a few pumpkins and mums for a casual but cozy outdoor space.
