Aaaah, the changing seasons! For some people, it’s a new excuse to bust out a new throw pillow or add something new to a space all in the name of seasonal decorating. We see no problem with cozying up your home this time of  year with a little touch of Fall. 

Fall is deep colors, warm textures and inviting smells that make you want to putz around your house in your fuzziest socks.

Here are some go to design tricks for adding a touch of Fall to your home decor.


White ones, gold ones, orange ones. In your kitchen, on your mantel, on your front porch. Real ones or fake ones. The pumpkin is the quintessential symbol of Fall. And you don’t have to like pumpkin spice to use these in your decor.

Light a Fall scented candle:

Some of the most popular scents this time of year are pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, spice. The slightest scent of Fall in a room has the ability to take us back to childhood memories like mom’s apple pie or family dinners. It’s also a good time to trade out the scents of your hand soaps and lotions for cozier scents.

Add a wreath to the front door.

An Autumn wreath on front door is an inviting welcome for guests and adds a bit of ‘Oh hey, Fall good to see you’ to the curb appeal of your home.

Cozy up the bedroom.

According to 5 Points Agent and home stager, Cassee Cunningham, the first item your list should be throw pillows. Plaids, tweeds, or something warm and fuzzy are all good options. Get creative and mix textures and patterns.  Add a blanket to the bed that makes you want to curl up and read a good book on chilly Saturday mornings. Of course, you can do the same in your living room.

What WOOD you do?

There are multiple ways to incorporate wood into your design. Bowls, trays, and boxes work in the various areas. Instead of covering up the wood for the fire place, display it. Add sticks and twigs to floral arrangements. 

Other easy fixes include tossing a container of mums on the front porch for a pop of color or getting some cute new Fall-ish dish towels. A cute dish towel adds a little extra happy to your kitchen any time of the year. It could also make drying dishes a less irritating chore.

Fall is a beautiful time in Charlotte and I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the cooler temperatures. While there is a lot to see and do around the Queen City even in a pandemic, chances are you might be spending a little extra time at home (STILL!) so why not spruce it up!
