Fall is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start prepping your home for the colder months ahead. Autumn marks the beginning of the holiday season, which is the perfect opportunity to give your home a cozy makeover.

Use fall fabrics, rich colors, and plenty of pumpkins to capture the spirit of Autumn. We’re going to walk you through the 12 easiest décor ideas to help you prep your home for the upcoming seasonal shift.

#1 Fill Your Space with Fall Blooms

Transform your living area with the simple addition of fall flowers and foliage. You can either choose to display live flora in vibrant fall colors, or hang wall art depicting the natural beauty of fall. Choose from a large canvas or a dynamic multi-panel piece to instantly brighten up a blank wall, such as this stunning seasonal scene:

#2 Perfect Your Porch

Porch decorations are absolutely essential for capturing the energy of fall. Change your door mat for a design with autumn leaves, and switch your potted plants for pumpkins. Get ready for the upcoming chilly months, and grab a fall wreath to complete the look.

#3 Wooden Wall Décor

Wood is a versatile material that radiates a sense of warmth. Hang wooden shelves and replace your metallic photo frames with organic wood. Commit to the natural look with wood that is raw and unpolished. You can also replace flowers in a vase with barren branches for a truly rustic vibe.

#4 Three-Dimensional Designs

Autumn is the ideal season to embrace texture. From placing pinecones around the house to hanging baskets of your favorite fall flowers, fall should be a sensorial experience! Someone said a cozy throw blanket?

#5 Luminous Light

Stray away from harsh overhead lighting and illuminate your space with lamps and candlelight. Use yellow-toned, industrial-style bulbs with an oil-rubbed, brassy finish for optimal warmth. You want your entire space to glow. Plus, what better way to capture a fireside feel than with super soft light?

#6 Don’t Forget the Hallway

It’s easy to forget small spaces when decorating your home, but hallways are a great area to add some seasonal character! Use a fall-inspired runner on the floor, and hang your favorite family photos in this underutilized locale.

#11 Focus on the Kitchen

Because autumn is so heavily associated with cooking, your kitchen is the most important room to add fall-friendly details. Commit to a cornucopia of your favorite fall foods, or display decorative candles in sensational fall scents like pumpkin spice and crisp apple.
