Who doesn’t like fall? It’s the season of crackling fires, comfy sweaters, and the romance of all things rustic. Get your home ready to embrace the season of abundance with these delightful tips for inviting autumn into your apartment.



Hang a Colorful Wreath

A door adorned with warm colors and seasonal textures are the simplest way to offer your visitors a hearty, fall welcome. Try to find a piece that complements the color of your door to maximize its impact. For example, if your door is earth-toned, go for bolder colors in the wreath and vice versa.

Accent Your Space with Decorative Branches

One of the easiest ways to highlight the season is to bring elements from the outside, indoors. Keep your arrangements unique by pairing traditional florals like roses or sunflowers with fall staples like pine cones, dried vines or gourds. Lay sprigs of fresh or synthetic branches on your coffee table or in a flower arrangement for a seasonal touch that requires almost no effort at all. 

Breathe In the Season  

With a spectrum of seasonal scents from spicy to sweet, it’s no wonder why smell is one of the most evocative senses of autumn. Plug in a flameless candle or diffuser with your favorite scent to sink deeper into the season with every breath.

Visit a Pumpkin Patch  

Carved pumpkins are an autumn no-brainer. Keep them fresh by soaking them in a bucket full of water and ⅔ cups of bleach. Trust us—your front porch will thank you. 

Take on Textures  

Autumn is the season of harvest, making elements of abundance a design-must. Don’t shy away from different shades of wood, burlap, or even hay. Modern seasonal potpourri mixes, wood chips or discolored mosses are a great, unexpected base for nestling pumpkins. These small touches will go a long way toward completing your seasonal look.
