5 Ways to Update Your Home for Fall

​Fall is here! The leaves are falling and everything smells like pumpkin spice and we want our homes to reflect all that seasonal goodness around us. We are sharing 5 ways to update your home for fall and bringing the outside in.

5 ways to update your home for fall


1. Pillow

Throw pillows make a big impact in a room and switching up your everyday pillows for Fall-inspired pillows will create a big statement. Many stores carry graphic pillows with pumpkins or leaves which make seasonal decorating easy but you could also be more subtle with the seasonal decorating and use warm, fall-inspired colored pillows like oranges, yellows, creams and browns. Use a variety of textures and patterns in the pillows to add warmth and coziness to your seasonal decorating.

2. Artwork

We all have artwork or framed photographs around our homes, so this Fall update should be an easy one! Switch out your everyday artwork for Fall-inspired art. Place a Fall print in a simple frame and place a small pumpkin in front and it instantly makes your whole room feel like Fall. Using canvas art in fall colors is a great option to layer on your mantle. The Fall art can be big or small but, no matter what, it will make a big difference in the room!

3. Wreaths

First impressions are everything and your front door makes the biggest first impression this season! Wreaths are a great way to instantly make your front door feel festive and inviting for guests. Orange and yellow wreaths can last all through Fall but green, gold and brown wreaths will look great in the Fall and all through winter as well!

4. Doormats

Another first impression of your home is your doormat. Don't forget this small detail! Since doormats aren't a big portion of the porch, you can add big personality and character in this item since the focus won't be on it all the time. Fun quotes and graphics are great on doormats because they can instantly bring a smile to your guests. If you want to be more sophisticated and formal, use a simple welcome mat and layer it will a larger plaid, buffalo check or colored rug underneath for contrast.

A home should appeal to all the 5 senses, especially smell. If you aren't baking pumpkin pie, cookies or burning wood in the fireplace, then a candle is a quick and easy way to update your home for Fall. Candle scents are so diverse these days and the possibilities are endless for Fall-inspired scents. We found some fun and unique scents below!
