You’ll Love These Easy Home Decor Ideas for Fall

Posted on September 20, 2017

With cooler temperatures, yellow leaves, and lots of rain, fall has made a return to Vancouver. While many are already celebrating fall’s appearance with a pumpkin spice latte, you can also celebrate by updating the decor in your house. Embrace the new season with these easy home decor ideas for fall.

Candles

There’s nothing easier than lighting a candle to add to the ambience in your home. The warm glow of a candle makes everything feel cozier in an instant. Look for candles with a fall-themed scent like pumpkin pie, cinnamon, or apple cider – basically anything baking related will do the trick!

Flower arrangements

Try your hand at flower arranging and put together a lovely bouquet for your table centrepiece. You can keep it simple by sticking with a variety of red, orange, and yellow flowers found at your local flower shop or grocery store. If you want to be a bit more adventurous, try using unique accents like maple leaves, twigs, or even apples in the arrangement. You can experiment with a few different arrangement styles through the fall and see what you like best.

Wreath

Hanging a wreath on your front door is another easy idea for fall decorating. You can buy a ready-made wreath or spend some time on Pinterest to get inspiration and create one from scratch. Materials like burlap ribbon, twine, and dried flowers are commonly used, but you’re limited only by your imagination. If you live in a detached house, there’s the added bonus that a wreath on your front door will help increase curb appeal.

Pumpkins

Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween jack-o-lanterns anymore! You can use miniature pumpkins as elegant decorations on your table or mantlepiece. If you’re a crafty type, you can decorate larger pumpkins with acrylic paint, glitter, or spray paint for some gorgeous designs. Again, a quick search on Pinterest will give you lots of fun ideas to choose from.

Lanterns

Hanging a few lanterns is a quick way to add fall decor to the outside of your home. You can put a lantern on either side of your front door to create a welcoming glow, or hang some on your balcony to create a cozy outdoor space to curl up with a blanket in the evenings. The best thing about lanterns? They’re not limited to the fall – you can keep them hanging up through any season!

Visit a local home decor store

To make things really easy on yourself, head to a local home decor store to find accent pieces for your home. We love Parliament Interiors in Gastown, Much and Little on Main Street, and The Cross Decor & Design in Yaletown. Your favourite store will have lots of new pieces for the season in a range of price points for you to choose from. The hardest part will be narrowing down your choices to just a few items.
