Making the autumn transition in your home

Once summer comes to an end, it’s time to prepare for the cooler temperatures and falling leaves. As the natural décor outside changes, so too should your home décor. Remember, home décor is not limited to the interior of your home and there are a number of ways to achieve the best look.

The entrance to your home will give your guest an idea of what to expect once they open the front door. First impressions are always important which is why it’s important to take the time to properly decorate this area of your home. If you have any potted plants in front of your home, you should make sure that they can handle colder temperatures or move them into a warmer area like a closed patio. You can also put some pumpkins on display in front of your home but you may prefer the hollowed out variety since you wouldn’t want them to go bad.

Another great addition is an autumn wreath for your front door. These differ from other types of wreaths because they focus on autumn colours and often include dried flowers and foliage. Good colours to consider include dark green, brown, amber, cream, and dark red.

In your home, you can focus on these same colours but use various types of foliage and flowers. Roses, ranunculus, various types of daisies, and even some lilies are great thanks to their gorgeous colours. Remember to look for dark green foliage but you can also use wheat and straw. Dried flowers are also excellent choice since they can be enjoyed for the duration of the autumn season and they include all the right colours and textures.

Some of the main areas you will need to focus on include your kitchen, your dining room table, any empty spaces in your living room and, your mantlepiece if you have one. Bedrooms and bathrooms can also use some modest floral décor and it depends on the space you have available. Don’t limit yourself to large bouquets. You can also opt for horizontal flower arrangements or even tablescapes for longer tables. Add other items like pinecones, pumpkins, and similar items to underline the theme of your floral displays.
