Dress Up Your Home for Fall

The temperatures are starting to drop. The leaves have turned beautiful colors of rust and gold. Cozy evenings by the fireplace, braised short ribs, roasts, harvest vegetables and red wine are starting to sound just right. It’s fall and it’s time to tidy away the patio furniture, carve some pumpkins and polish the silver for Thanksgiving dinner. It’s easy to celebrate this season in your home with a few simple and inexpensive decorating ideas.  Bring the outside in – A few boughs with dark red leaves make a brilliant centerpiece for a hallway or dining room table.

Exchange your summary throw pillows for ones in rust, chocolate brown or hounds

tooth – the trendiest fabric this season. Fill your favorite vase with pumpkin colored roses or mums. Pull up your braided summer area rugs and fill your home with richly colored ones.

Pumpkins and gourds brighten up an entryway. Use miniature pumpkins and gourds for

a mantle piece. Add autumn leaves or harvest vegetables for more color.  It’s fun and easy to make over your home for the fall season.
