The leaves are falling, the weather is getting cooler and autumn is officially in the air! Everyone knows that fall is the season of change, so why not make a few festive fall changes to your custom-built home? While a simple pumpkin on the porch is always an easy go-to, there are more ways to incorporate the feeling of fall into the home. Here are a few of our Generation Homes team’s favorite fall décor ideas for a bit of seasonal inspiration.
Keep it Natural
The beauty of nature can’t be beat, especially the natural elements of the fall season. Incorporating natural fall elements into your fall décor is an easy and inexpensive way to achieve an effortless look. Gather some colorful fall leaves, festive fall flowers, seasonal gourds, rustic branches and dried pinecones to create beautiful centerpieces for your home’s dining room table or fireplace mantle. Place these natural elements in a vase or bowl for a designed look or lay them out loosely for a more spread out arrangement. Corn husks are great for creating fall garlands and wreaths while pumpkins can be layered to create a more interesting display.
Cozy Up Outdoors
Just because the temperatures have dropped doesn’t mean you have to give up on enjoying the fresh autumn air. Whether you have a simple patio or a screened-in deck, there are several ways to liven up the space and create a set up perfect for fall entertaining. A few simple strands of string lights, lanterns, plush blankets and fuzzy throws are all you need to up your cozy up any outdoor space. We suggest using warm reds, yellows, browns and oranges to fully complement the natural fall background. For anyone looking for some extra warmth outdoors, a custom fire pit or outdoor fireplace can also be easily added or incorporated into your home.
Go Heavy on Textures
Varying textures add depth and warmth, two things the fall season is all about. Playing with cozy textures alone add tons of seasonal spirit into the home. Fall textures tend to rely on a lot of natural elements like wood. Wooden crates are great for filling with autumn accents while inspirational wood signs add a rustic feel to the home. Other fall textures include those with a heavier look and feel such as velvet, flannel, faux fur and knit. Easily incorporate these textures in the form of throw blankets, decorative pillows, curtains, table runners and area rugs. A simple texture swap makes a world of difference.
Be a Bit Moody
When most people think of fall colors, visions of bright red, mustard yellow, and burnt orange usually come to mind. While these lively fall shades are definitely reminiscent of the season, fall is also a great time to play around with darker, moodier color schemes. These fall-inspired accent colors include dark reds, deep greens, smoky grays and even rich purples and blues. These are great moody shades that create a darker, more sophisticated fall look. Add some gold accents in the form of candlesticks, frames, bowls, charger plates or glassware for a simple yet elegant touch.
