Let’s face it friends. Fall is so much better than summer. You can pile on the plaid, go all out on the throw pillows — and don’t forget the mugs! Mugs, on mugs, on mugs!!!! The years comfiest decor season is here, and I want to share with you the best ways to do it up. BIG and on a budget.
I’ve noticed I don’t provide enough style ideas on my blog, so I want to start now! Here are a few Fall Decorating Ideas (Collected from Pinterest/HGTV/HouseBeautiful/ and some of my favorite YouTube Budget Stylists) The list below is my spin-off of interior styling to make it work on a budget, and not to break your wallet before the Holidays! Let’s get started:
- Swap In Seasonal Greenery
The branches pick up warm colors of the space. Go outside, and collect leaves with your kids, create a fun and cool fall leaf garland!
- Build Up The Fire
A fireplace, is def a focal point to any room. Warm it up at night, with throw blankets & lots and lots of piled on pillows
- Add A Cozy Throw
Throw blankets are a massive MUST HAVE during the fall season. Check out your local Ross/Marshall’s/TJMaxx for discounted and awesome cozy throws!
- Hang A Wreath
HomeGoods or DIY!!!!!! That wreath already starts at the door, letting anyone know walking by, you’re ready for fall!!
- Style Your Porch
Restyle your outdoor space. Out with the summer patio look, and in with the “mountain range/Tahoe retreat.” Check out Craigslist for patio furniture local neighbors are getting rig of. Or KMart/WalMart to Target — Check out their summer clearance, and restyle main pieces of patio furniture adding in warm weathered textures, and prints!
Your dinning room should have that statement piece. My current dinning table has wooden candlestick holders (Threshold Target Brand) purchased from Goodwill! Style them with a long table runner, warm candles, and some pumpkins!
- Attention Nook
Aside from your dinning area, don’t forget to add the cozy love to your breakfast nook. Fall is about gathering together. Be sure to give additional table scape details to that breakfast nook. From Placemats, to autumn neutral florals (From Trader Joes) in a thrifted vase!
- Bath Mat
Most people wouldn’t think about redecorating the bathrooms. But I do!! From the bath mat, towels, to the decorative pieces to use in the powder room. Continue on the look of fall ALL throughout the your home!
- Layer LOTS of Rugs
Too many carpets? There’s no such thing. It’s an open invitation to put your feet up.
- Reading Corner
Fall is the time I read the most books! Designate an area for quite reading. Curl up with a glass of wine and you won’t miss the warm weather quite so much.
- Let There Be Light
Plug in some extra lamps!! This is something new I’ve been learning. With the shorter days, you’ll want to add brighter lighting to your favorite spaces. Nothing better than that soft glow sprinkled around your living space.
- Rethink The Dining Room
For a more relaxed feel, add pillows to stiff-backed chairs. I’ve purchased 2 chairs from the Goodwill Outlet for ($12 for the pair!) After repainting them,my DIY mind, wants to repaint them just for the cold season! (Possibly a splash of plum or a dark peacock green jade.)
