Fall is more than a season – it’s a feeling.  It’s a warm and cozy feeling you get every time you step out into the cool, crisp air, see the leaves changing color or smell the scent of pumpkin and cinnamon. You can also get that feeling inside your home with our DIY fall decorations guide.

Like every season, fall has its own unique color association, styles and scents you can incorporate into every room of your house. Here’s what our team recommends for decorating your home this season:

Colors

Fall weather evokes warm and fuzzy feelings, which are reflected in its signature colors. Warm tones, such as brown, rust, orange and gold, work best to create that inviting, toasty feeling.

Simple changes, like adding a tan throw across your sofa or using pumpkin-colored throw pillows, can make any couch work in any season. Incorporate fall colors into every room using accessories like gold tins in the kitchen and pumpkin rugs in the hall. A little can go a long way.

Scents

Nothing says fall like the smell of a warm pumpkin pie, so why not have your whole house smell like it? Try placing fall scented candles around your house using scents such as vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar or apple.

Simple Accents

Between Halloween and Thanksgiving, it’s no surprise pumpkins are used as a decorative piece for fall. They look great when done right, which means playing with varying colors. For instance, white pumpkins lend an elegant air to a dining room table or front porch. Traditional orange ones that look a bit worn give a nice rustic feel to a fireplace mantel. The idea is not to overwhelm a space with too many pumpkins and use them as subtle accents for your fall decor.
