Autumn is finally here and, for many, it is the best time of year for decorating. Whether you are shopping for new Atlanta furniture or seasonal accents, check out a few of these decorating ideas for your home.
One can never have enough throw blankets and pillows. Plaid is an all-time favorite for throws but this year, faux fur is another popular choice for cozying up by the fire. Pillows are an easy and affordable way to really add color to your space. You can really go bold with fall colors by adding mix and match pillows to your living room or bench seating. Rustic patterns of red, orange, purple, and country white instantly add that seasonal feel to any room.
Floral arrangements are another great way to incorporate the season into your home. This year, dried oakleaf hydrangeas are in as well as the traditional sunflower, cranberry, and dried ornamentals. Get really creative with your arrangements by putting them in a not-so-traditional vase. Hollow out a styrofoam pumpkin from your local craft store and secure the arrangement with decorative burlap ribbon. Outside, a couple of perfectly placed hay bales are great for stacking more pumpkins and for taking this year’s family holiday photo.
Your autumn look isn’t complete until you get the fire going. Instead of hiding this season’s pile of firewood, put it on display in a neat stack by the fire or in a decorative bucket nearby. If you don’t plan on using your fireplace this season, try stacking the dried logs inside the empty hearth with the rings facing out. Stack a few pieces of unhewn birch upright on a mantle or coffee table to be used as a votive holder. Accent it with burlap ribbon, twine, or dried vines to complete the look.
