The start of autumn signifies the beginning of the holiday season and brings along with it wonderful sights and smells. Capture seasonal elements and add details to your home to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for the holidays. Read on to learn simple ways to get your home decorated for fall!

Add Cozy Elements

Tuck away your lighter weight cotton and bring on the thick knits and lush velvets! Add a plaid blanket to your armchair and introduce holiday colors with minimal effort. Consider switching out your lighter colored rugs used in the spring and summer for a warmer toned area rug. The darker theme lends itself to the warm tones of the season. Not to mention, you won't have to worry about house guests tracking in dirt.

Perhaps the quickest and easiest way to liven up your space for the fall is adding a few seasonally appropriate throw pillows! We offer pillows covers individually or with inserts, so you have the option of reinventing the pillows you already have – or adding a few new ones! This Golden Art throw pillow is perfect for updating your couch, and with the glitzy gold details, it’s pretty enough to stay there through the New Year!

Don’t overlook the bathroom for a little seasonal update! Sort through your linen closet and donate old towels to your local animal shelter. Then, get to work choosing how you will reinvent your space! A luxe berry tone mirrors the beautiful leaves outside.

Darker shades also work well with guests visiting, as a light color will lose its vibrancy quickly. An added benefit – a rich red can last you the whole holiday season, so your Christmas quests can bathe in luxury as well!

Smells of the Season

An inexpensive way to add the beautiful smells of the season to your home is to simmer homemade holiday potpourri all day on your stovetop! Your home will smell like the fall in no time by combining cinnamon sticks, orange wedges and a few drops of vanilla extract. To add more of a décor staple (not to mention save time!) pick up a colorful candle!

Holiday Spirits

If you have been eyeing those stunning bar carts on Pinterest, now is the time to set one up for yourself! Be sure to include various kinds of liquor to appeal to a wide variety of tastes! Gin, vodka, rum and whiskey are considered standard options that work well with various mixers.

Don’t forget the wine! For guests who enjoy an adult beverage on the mild side, offer a mellow red wine. To add a bit of intrigue, serve in a wine punt glass! These unique glasses are re-purposed from wine bottles and offer a fun way to elevate your holiday décor. We offer a variety of colors, so you will be sure to find one that suits your holiday décor theme.
