The year’s coziest season has arrived and it’s time to take your home decorating to the next level. From floral patterns to autumn colors, decorative cushions, faux fur throws, low centerpieces, and home accessories, there are many ways to achieve a stylish and cozy home.

9 Fall Decorating Ideas for a Stylish and Cozy Home

Let the outdoors in with floral patterns

Florals are a classic pattern that is taking the spotlight this year. For a modern take on floral prints, you can go big and bold. For example, you can use a wallpaper that features close-up images of big and detailed flowers. If you’re using small floral prints, you can keep it more modern by choosing more abstract variations. Smaller floral prints also work well for accent items, like vases and pillows.

Get luxurious with faux fur throws

An easy way to add a luxurious feel in your home is by draping white faux fur throws over the back of your dining chairs. Or, you can drape one over the accent chair in your living room. Faux fur area rugs aren’t going out of style anytime soon. It’s a surefire way to add warmth in your hardwood-floored living room. Faux fur can also be used on bedding, thrown over ottomans, or on your coffee table. Faux fur throw pillows also spell warmth and coziness.

Incorporate autumn colors

Bring out the bright colors of the fall season in your home decorations, from leaf art garlands to basic wicker baskets with overflowing fall foliage, pumpkins, or even just a bowl of acorns and an empty milk bottle of foliage. Another way to celebrate the fall season is by adding an orange velvet accent, such as a throw pillow.

Warm up your entryway

You want to make your home autumn-inspired in and out. You can use banners, stalks of corn, and gourd-adorned hay bales as accents for your entryway. Alternately, you can put up an upholstered bench and top it with some throw pillows and books. Pumpkin-topped planters or pumpkin patches also make festive fall decorations for your porch. And yes, don’t forget your fall garland.

Add some low centerpieces

For your dining table, you can add a mix of herbs or flowers, with some fall-inspired accents like gourds and acorns. Make dining even more pleasurable by making use of your classic china pieces and elegant silverware.

Choose natural accents

This fall season, opt for natural edgy accents like a raw wood coffee table, mason jars filled with seasonal delights like acorns, corns, and mini pumpkins, or a wall accent filled with greens and browns.

Black and white decor are in

If you want to give your fall-inspired home decorating with a retro take, you can try sticking to black and white pieces. For example, you can pair a plain white pumpkin with some vintage items.

Cozy up your bedroom

Make your bedroom fall-ready by simply adding a fur throw – your best cuddle buddy in the cold weather. Go for patterned, colorful comforter over your usual plain flannel blanket, layer rugs on rugs, and create custom candle holders to warm up your cold nights. Cozify your lighting too. Lighting makes a huge difference in the feel of your space.

Fall-ready your kitchen too

Fall decorations include centerpieces that make a statement such as a bowl with berries and white pumpkins, a basket of fake fruits and pumpkins or a tiered display of the same items. Decorations that incorporate pumpkins and veggies look pretty too. For the pumpkins, you can choose natural or faux and made with any material that matches the overall design of your kitchen. As for the veggies, you can use anything from garlic to gourds, cucumbers, artichokes, and tomatoes. Candles and pinecones are beautiful accents too. Note that a centerpiece doesn’t have to be purely decorative. You can come up with something that you can use, such as a bread basket or a cake stand adorned with fall-inspired pieces.

Making your home fall-ready is fun and easy by pulling together nature-inspired pieces and patterns, along with warm, colorful fabrics and throws. With these simple home decorating tips, you can achieve a beautiful, warm, and cozy home that you and your family will love.
