Most pumpkins come in warm shades like red, orange, or yellow. But if you don’t want to introduce a new color to your palette, don’t. Stock up on pumpkins in understated colors—like white, black, or emerald green—and complement your home’s palette, instead of adding contrast to it.
12. Stick a Sign on Your Front Porch
Investing in a front porch sign that says “fall” may seem a little over the top. But there’s no shame in having fun. So do the decorative equivalent of shouting “FALL” from the rooftops and welcome the season with a sign on your front porch.
13. Trade Vases for Rustic Buckets
It’s natural to store bouquets inside vases. But this season, consider more rustic vessels—like baskets, buckets, or even mugs. The containers should make your bouquets feel textured and homey—a perfect combination for fall.
14. Color-Coordinate Your Décor
Fall has a pretty recognizable color scheme, so one easy way to decorate for the season is to streamline your palette. Fill your vases and planters with fall-colored flowers, stock up on neutral throw pillows, and rid your space of colorful accents. The bold move will leave your space feeling more seasonal—even if there’s no fall-specific décor in sight.
15. Fill a Bowl With Pinecones
Keep it simple this season by filling a bowl with pinecones, and making that your go-to centerpiece. The easy accent will add texture to any table. And if you feel like getting fancy, you can always pair it with a candle or a bouquet of fall flowers.
