Yay! Fall is finally here! Even though the weather in Southern California is still pretty warm, you can tell there is a crispness in the air and the mornings and nights are getting just a bit cooler. The five degree temperature drop makes me want to light the fireplace and cozy up the house. Fall is my favorite season and I’m so excited Baby Girl will be born in the fall. Normally I go all out but this year because I’ll be bringing the baby home and I’m not sure how I will be feeling about switching out decor, I found myself searching for easy updates I could do to our home to transition from summer to fall. Below are some simple tips to make your home feel ready for fall with minimum effort.
- Update your Greenery – Switch out your real or artificial plants with fall foliage, twigs, leaves, pumpkins, acorns, and pinecones. Scatter these items on your mantle or coffee table, and in lanterns, vases, dough bowls, or any sort of vessel to bring the outdoors in. I usually replace the succulents and more desert-looking summer plant accents in my home with pumpkins, gourds, and leaves for complete fall vibe.
- Cozy Throw Pillows and Blankets – Nothing screams fall more than cozying up by the fireplace with a chai or pumpkin spice latte underneath a cozy blanket. I love incorporating heavier and cozier blankets in my living spaces and playing with textures such as faux fur, velvet, cable knit, and wool. The denser fabrics give off a cozy and comfortable vibe and items like blankets and pillows are so easy to swap out throughout the seasons and can easily be stored once the season is over.
- Smells Like Fall – I just love fall scents and candles are an easy way to not only make your place smell great but can also be cute decor pieces as well. Some of my favorite scents for fall include notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, sandalwood, vanilla, brown sugar, and apple.
- Fall Signage – Swap out the signage in your home to signage with cute fall sayings or quotes on them. DIY yourself with a chalkboard and some chalk or search for fall prints on sites like Etsy and print them out at home. Stores like Target, Michaels, and Home Goods also sell signage seasonally and it’s usually pretty inexpensive.
That’s it! It can be easy as that to transition your home from summer to fall. How will you be getting your house ready for the new season? What’s your favorite way to decorate for fall?
