When you think of fall, what comes to mind? Leaves turning crimson red, golden yellow, and burnt orange? Pumpkins, gourds, corn stalk bunches, and other front porch decorations? Crisp mornings and football weather? Soup season? Or how about snuggling up and sipping some warm cider with your special someone? Well, fall is all of these things, and more!
Fall forces us to make a shift towards spending more time inside, as temperatures drop and the days grow shorter. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, since it also gives us some special opportunities to enjoy warmth and coziness indoors. And when it comes to your home, fall is a great time to refresh your décor so you can refresh your at-home experiences. To that end, let the seasonal hues of fall bring you some inspiration!
Welcome Fall with an Accent Wall
Rich browns, lush greens, deep blues, vibrant oranges, and rich reds—earthy tones are a must for creating a beautiful fall space. You can blend and add splashes of color with accent pillows, blankets, or other accessories. Or if you’re ready to try something a bit bolder, you can infuse some color into your interior environment with a fresh coat of paint on the walls.
Not ready to repaint the entire room? You don’t have to! Painting a single accent wall is the perfect way to add some color and spruce up your space for fall. Don’t shy away from using vibrant autumn colors, as long as you balance your new color with the accents around the room such that they coordinate and complement each other. Obviously, you’ll want to take into account the color of the surrounding walls as well, to ensure that the total color palette works together harmoniously.
Don’t want to repaint any walls? You don’t have to! You can also consider painting other features as accent areas – like perhaps your ceiling, or a door, or your window & door trim, or your crown molding (if you have it). If you’re willing to think outside of the box a little, you’re sure to find some ways to infuse color into your space, whether in a bold way or in a more subtle manner.
Decorate with Plush Throws and Pillows
Another way to blend some fall color into your space is to play with your accent pillows and throws. Try draping a faux fur or plush velvet throw over the back of a chair, a sofa, or even across an ottoman. This will make your space look and feel warmer and more inviting. If you’re having a hard time deciding whether to go with faux fur or velvet, you could always just choose a throw which offers the best of both! Our Velvet Faux Fur Throw is stylish, chic, and luxuriously cozy – to the point that you’ll want to wrap up in it every time you come in the room!
Add Some Cozy Layers to Your Bed, Too
Fall is also a great time to spruce up your bedroom by adding some extra touches of texture and accent to your bed. Your bedroom should be the most comfortable sanctuary in your home, some of which includes choosing things that bring you real joy and real relaxation. We’ve mentioned adding some throws and pillows. Conversely, you could use some new shams to cover the top-layer pillows you’ve already got. Another great option is to add a quilted blanket or coverlet as a top bed layer, or use it as a folded feature at the foot of your bed. These can be used to add some soft texture, give your bed a more finished look, and also provide you with a little added warmth on a chilly night.
Take a look at our Lux Diamond Blanket/Coverlet which comes in two sizes and is available in an array of soft, neutral colors – perfect for adding both texture and comfort. Also check out our new Lux 3-Piece Duvet Cover & Sham Set it’s soft, luxurious, and stylish!
We wish you a Happy Fall, and we encourage you to take this opportunity to create a warm, cozy, indoor oasis for yourself and your loved ones!
