It's always sad to say goodbye to summer, but autumn comes with lots of things to look forward to – especially the decor! It's the perfect time to make some decor updates both inside and outside your home to embrace the season entirely. Whether you've got a go-to fall style that you're ready to break out, or you're looking for some new seasonal decor, we've got some decor tips to get you started.
Welcome the fall into your home by updating the decor on your front door or porch! A classic pumpkin-lined porch will always be in style, and a bristle doormat or an oak-leaf wreath is perfect for a condo or apartment building. A large vase with maple leaves and twigs can also be inviting and is easy to change year-round for seasonal decorations!
If you have room for furniture on your patio or front deck, wicker furniture is always in fashion for autumn. Using cushions in fall colours, like burnt orange, yellow, and gold, can also help fit in with the seasonal tones.
These traditional autumnal colours that we all know and love will never go out of style for this season. However, a prevalent trend for fall 2020 is incorporating rich purples and deep pinks as accent colours in the decor. Whether in your furniture, centre pieces, table settings, or outdoor furniture, using a pop of "millennial purple" acts as a great statement among bronze and deep orange colours.
As long as you use the accent in a couple places, like napkins and a flower in the centrepiece or sofas it can tie a more traditional decor together in a modern way.
Is there anything better than cozy knits for fall? Knit blankets and pillows are great additions to any room to embrace the season. Even the trendiest spaces, with industrial or modern furniture, are easily softened up by a few knit blankets in the fall.
Knits are excellent materials and patterns to use for your fall decor to make your modern space feel comfortable and inviting.
Lighting is one of the best ways to make your modern space feel cozier. Hanging fairy lights has been popular for a few years now, both inside and outside. A twist on this trend this year is using small lights as part of your decorative pieces. DIY jars filled with lights, burlap, and rope can make beautiful centre pieces indoors and outdoors.
Wrapping small LED lights around your wreaths and dried flowers is also a great way to modernize a very traditional decor trend. Using candle holders and glass vases is still a must this year!
