Fall Decor Ideas for your Home

So tomorrow is officially the first day of the fall season!  Although the arrival of fall means that winter isn't too far away - I still love the fall season!!  The colours, the smells, the weather and the overall landscape. It's just gorgeous!

My children are even getting into the spirit of the changing season - they love to collect fallen pine cones, visits to the local apple orchards and pumpkin patch.  They are just itching to pick their own pumpkin! 

I have already jumped into my fall decor.  I started with the exterior with a fall harvest wreath made of natural materials in rich and sophisticated colours like - espresso brown, burgundy and eggplant.  My personal tip on a wreath is to go natural (if you can).  It just looks so much better.  If you can't find one you like, try making your own - you can use natural materials like grapevine and various 'findings' on nature walks like pine cones and colourful leaves - don't forget the glue gun!

But I think the favourite outdoor decor item of my children is the scarecrow.  I have one for each of them.  You can make your own or buy one (they are available at so many stores).

Other great ways to celebrate the fall season - try bails of hay at the door step or on the porch.  Add some baskets of hardy fall mums and some pumpkins.

Also check out your local nursery or grocery store for beautiful (already planted/potted) fall flower baskets.  they are so full and lush.  The colours are so spectacular and it's so easy just leave at the door step and voila!  Just water when needed and don't worry about the drastic temperature changes that come with the fall season, these flowers are designed for it.

For your interior, try some simple bowls with mini pumpkins, pine cones and/or gourds.  Try switching your white candles for olive or orange tones.  Bouquets of sunflowers and Gerber daisies look so fall festive.  Bowls of fresh picked apples is another great table centrepiece.Tall glass vases with sticks in the corner of any room add a natural and organic feel to the space.

To keep fall decor looking modern, mix the natural elements with more streamlined pieces.  Try mini pumpkins in a glass bowl, contemporary floral arrangements with fall flowers.  In order to achieve a modern look, keep it simple and streamlined.
