Fall Style with Samantha

Fall is here and for me, welcoming a new season never gets old! The changing of seasons allows you to give your home a new look without buying furniture or expensive pieces. It also gives me an opportunity to be creative, which I love! Below are some of my go to tips for spicing up your home for fall. 

1)    Spruce up your front door.  Your front door or porch area is the first thing your guests see when they come to your home; you want to make sure it gives them a warm welcome! Whether you add a festive wreath or a basket filled with fall foliage, spruce your front door up to give it a cozy fall feel.  Try adding vinyl house numbers to tall pumpkins or even painting them yourself, it’s totally trending this year. 

2)    Think warm tones.  Even bright white can give that cozy autumn feel when combined with warm oranges and browns. Throw pillows, table accessories, and accent rugs are high-impact, low-investment places to start. When adding fall color, orange is not your only option. Jewel tones of deep purple, magenta, and even dark teal can go a long way in warming up a space.

3)    Choose pieces that will stay timely through the holidays, or that can be updated in a snap, to save space and money. Pinecones, dried berries, and twigs stay up-to-date throughout the winter. After Thanksgiving, swap your moss and acorns for faux-snow and ornaments to give the same space a new decor.

4)    Bring the outdoors in.  I just love adding stacks of wood near the fireplace and bringing in fresh or faux pumpkins and gourds mixed with some foliage. Don’t be afraid to mix it up, I’ve used many combinations of fresh and faux pieces to create displays. Fresh pumpkins can last quite a while, so they’re a great choice. Use greenery throughout to complement the colourful foliage outside.
