If you love decorating for fall but don’t want to use the same dried gourds and fake leaves everyone else uses, then this guide is for you. Half Price Drapes has come together to bring you some of the best, most sophisticated ways to decorate for fall.
Bring in lots of texture
The first thing you think of when you think of fall decorating should be texture. Think about chunky knits, which are in style and easy to add to your décor. They bring a bold, yet somehow delicate, overlay for sofas, hallway benches, and other large pieces of furniture. You can also add things like wool, fur, and mohair to bring style and sophistication – and tons of texture.
Use artwork wisely
Your walls should be dressed up with bold statements and art is a great way to do that. Choose prints or canvas art that has smoky, mysterious, bold pictures. You can shop at your local art gallery, find art online, or even stop by your local second hand store to find some truly unique pieces. If you’re the artistic sort, then you might consider creating your own art. There are literally millions of tutorials that can make an artist out of nearly anyone.
Let patterns tell a story
Let go of the idea that your patterns all need to match. Instead, mix dots with florals, mix stripes with patterns. If you want a subtle look, then you may consider bold, solid-colored accessories that bring in unique patterns. For those who aren’t afraid to let their décor run wild, consider draperies that make an incredibly bold statement with a very bold and unique pattern.
Colors are important too
When many people think of decorating for fall, they think of colors like orange and brown. While these can be lovely additions to your fall décor, don’t let it end there. You can also add topaz yellow, amethyst purple, or emerald green. The goal is to use bold, rich colors that are deep and bring to mind comfort and warmth.
Skip the dried flowers
Dried flowers and leaves are a popular addition to fall decors but in reality, there are many fall flowers you can buy fresh. Not only will they make your place look amazing but they can make it smell great too. You can also bring floral elements in via your curtains, artwork, or upholstery. Don’t be afraid to mix it up and make your home a unique example of the things you love.
