If you’re having a bit of trouble deciding where to start, we have a few pointers below that will make your fall re-decorating adventure a breeze.

Focus on gathering spaces

Fall is typically the start of the much-anticipated holiday season. This means lots of time spent with friends and family members in your home. Approach your redecorating efforts by starting with the rooms and areas in your home where people are most likely to congregate. This allows guests to enjoy your seasonably-sensible spaces as much as possible and creates shared energy of fall excitement. Your living and dining rooms are the most likely places to start, but the kitchen could be just as well. A lot of cooking for big groups happens this time of year, and that group will probably make its way into the kitchen to help at some point.

If gathering spaces aren’t your immediate priority, focus on the places that are important to you. Or focus on places where you spend the most time. This would likely include the bedroom, living room, or your home office.

Start with a spot that means the most to you, and simply work outwards from there.

Use seasonal fall decor

One of the simplest ways to spice up space for fall is the use of fall-themed decor. Thankfully, Ashley Furniture has endless quality options if you choose to go this route. These items are very affordable, easy to set up and add a special charm instantly to wherever you put them.

Maple leaf garlands are a very popular item. They can be used both indoors and out and in a wide variety of settings. This might include your fireplace mantle, bookshelf, front porch, or even a window sill. You could also hang one over your door, beside which sits a fall-themed upright welcome sign.

Harvest wreaths are another fantastic method of instantly giving your door or wall an explosion of beautiful fall colors. Ashley also offers fantastically-crafted pumpkin wreaths adorned with orange ornaments.

Pumpkins are an extremely easy fall accessory and are of course, iconic for the season. If you want a change from the traditional real pumpkin, Ashley has the gourd for you! There are a variety of festive pumpkin-themed decor items available in a wide selection of colors and sizes.

Enjoy spending a bit of time browsing the many options Ashley has for fall decor. It shouldn’t take long for you to get plenty of ideas. Of course, if you have questions or need a bit of help, don’t ever hesitate to give us a call.

Remove out-of-season colors

Balancing fall colors with your year-round decor might require a bit of extra attention, but shouldn’t be too tricky at all. Start by minimizing the variety of colors in the room. Remove anything out of season that is too visually distracting or feels out of place for fall. Pivot to oranges, deep reds, and softer brown tones instead. This can easily be done with a few throw pillows or blankets.

But don’t worry too much about adhering to a rigid range of fall-related tones. Sometimes bright greens paired with a burnt orange or brown can appear quite stunning. For instance, green gourds could look wonderful with a fall-themed topiary on your side table. Just add the right colors to them or around them, and enjoy. By focusing on using quality items that are soft to the touch and offer that fall coziness factor, your guests (and you) will be instantly charmed by the autumn awesomeness of your room.

Embrace the coziness

Keep your guests warm and cozy by the bonfire with some warm and soft outdoor pillows. These will feel so warm and inviting as you sit around the fire enjoying each other’s company. Bring out some fuzzy throw blankets while you’re at it and make it a fall evening your guests won’t forget. When it gets too cold and you need to head inside, don’t be afraid to bring some of that outdoor splendor with you. Pinecone and twig arrangements alongside your other fall-themed pieces go a long way toward creating an inviting space to be.

Another cozy accessorizing strategy for fall is to mix plaid patterns into your usual palette of bed sheets and blankets. There is something about plaid that just exudes a sense of warmth and invitation. Don’t forget about your smaller outdoor spaces as well. Your little sitting chair on the front or back porch would benefit from a cozy companion such as a small throw or pillow. You’ll keep coming back until the temperatures drop too low and it will be time to start bringing out the Christmas decorations.
