The air is starting to cool over the East Bay and the leaves outside are turning from green to crimson. Kids are replacing sunscreen and swimsuits with pencils and backpacks. After much anticipation, fall is finally here! If you’re wondering how to bring the beautiful transition season into your own home on a budget, we’ve got you covered. Settle in with a warm cup of tea and read our fall decorating tips below.
Tip 1: Festive Pillows
Decorative pillows are an easy and inexpensive way to bring the bright yellows, oranges, and reds of fall into any room of your house. Accompanying a single fall colored pillow with a cast of mellow, neutral pillows will make the color pop and keep the space from becoming too visually loud. We love a lively, mustard yellow or dusty, burnt orange.
Tip 2: Cozy Knit Throws
Nothing is better for a cool autumn night than a cozy throw. Knit throws add texture and comfort to any space and are perfect for snuggling up with a cup of tea and a book. Their inherent coziness means that they don’t necessarily need to be in fall colors, and therefor can be appropriate for any time of the year. A worthy investment!
Tip 3: Comforting Candles
Candles are a fun and inexpensive way to add fall comfort into your home. The mellow flickering light brings us back to a more primitive time, when gathering around the fire meant warmth and safety. They also bring the season indoors with tantalizing fall scents, such as cinnamon apple and pumpkin nutmeg. Good luck coming home with just one!
