40 Modern Fall Decor Inspiration To Transform Your Home For The Cozy Season
1 min read
It’s time to say good-bye to summer as the fall season emerges and brings with it the holidays. Now we start to get excited about Halloween, one of the biggest decorating holidays of the year, and of course Thanksgiving. Even though the climate is still warm, we tend to think of autumn colours, jack-o-lanterns and the taste of apple cider. This in turn is reflected in our homes as we succumb to that holiday decorating urge.
What if your home is up for sale? You’ve staged it beautifully, right down to the table setting; do you refrain from putting out your stuffed scarecrow and pumpkin display? Absolutely not; do celebrate the season, but do exercise some caution. Instead of turning your front lawn into a graveyard, complete with flying bats and howling sound effects, perhaps you could try a tastefully displayed jack-o-lantern instead. There is nothing wrong with festive decorations, but remember, less is more; your home can stand apart from the other homes without becoming a billboard. Keep in mind that your walkways are left unobstructed and that you haven’t created any sort of hazard for your potential buyers.
Here are some easy, tasteful ideas for Halloween and fall decorating:
Instead of plastic figures, use items from nature to adorn your home. Decorate a front porch by tying corn stalks and Indian corn to pillars with raffia ribbon. Gourds and pumpkins make colourful adornments; try overturning a basket and display them spilling out over the edges. They also make a nice ornament combined with a bale of hay.
Either purchase or make a fall wreath by wrapping it with silk autumn leaves and adding a baby pumpkin or squash. Convert it to a Halloween wreath by attaching a stuffed witch. Display your potted mums indoors or outdoors by using a large pumpkin as a vase allowing the flowers to overflow.
