Ahhh. The smell of pumpkin spice lattes and hot, fresh cinnamon rolls are already starting to fill the air. With fall just around the corner, everyone is getting excited about what decorating updates they can make to their homes to make it feel more like fall and less like sizzling summer. With family gatherings starting to increase in the weeks to come, you want your home to be warm and inviting. And decorating for fall is just the way to make sure all of your guests feel like they’re at their home-away-from-home. 

Here are 4 decorating tips to get your home ready for cooler weather and hotter coffee!

Tip #1

While your first thought when you hear the word velvet might be a flashback to the 1970’s, one of 2017’s hottest decorating trends is actually velvet inside your home! Think velvet couches and chairs that create such a luxurious feel that will welcome many guests into your home throughout all of the holiday gatherings. If velvet furniture is a bit of a stretch for you, try throwing a velvet pillow on your furniture pieces to give a bit of a warmer touch! 

You can also add a unique twist to the velvet touches with rustic textures like woven baskets, wood walls, and wood furniture. These pieces bring a masculine touch to a rather feminine fabric, which ties the look nicely together.

Quilts. This All-American classic is sure to bring back some nostalgia from the good old days at your grandparents’ house. With warm weather heading out of the door and cooler weather creeping in, you will be looking for cozy options to keep you warm all night long.

So dig out those quilts from your grandma, throw them over your bed, and get ready for some serious cuddle time with your loved one. Quilts are totally in!

Is your home due for an update and a serious upgrade, but you don’t want to spend a crazy amount of money (because, hello, Christmas is right around the corner)? Well, you’re in luck because one of the hottest trends for fall is faux finishes.

If you’re looking to give your home a spruce this fall, try adding faux finishes to your walls, floor tiles, or furniture. Without costing too much and wasting too much of your family time, faux finishes could be the perfect solution to creating an updated look on a budget.

If you live in south, have been in the south, or know anyone that is remotely close to the south, you know how much we love our door wreaths. Literally any occasion, holiday, birthday, or family dinner calls for a new door wreath to be hung. But in 2017, wreaths are getting a bit simpler.

Twigs, puff balls, and metal rings all serve as great options for door wreaths that dress up your door for fall! Use warm colors like burnt orange, dark yellow, woodland green to give your wreath the fall feel it needs! And, whenever anyone drives by your house, they’ll see the wreath and know you are already sitting inside by a fire with your pumpkin spice latte in your hand!
