Too Soon? Fall Decor Tips For The Ghost-ess With The Mostest
September is just days away and you know what that means… Fall! Pumpkins! Crisp air! Crunchy leaves! Halloween! Candy! Spooky movies! Warm drinks! We just know we aren’t the only ones who look forward to this time of year. What’s not to like? For those of you who are like us and have an itch to decorate for spooky season as soon as September hits you’re in luck. We’ve put together a list of must-haves to give your home that perfect fall feel. Here we go!
- Trick-or-texture… Fabrics like burlap, velvet, chunky knits and faux fur can easily transform your home into a cozier space quick. We like to incorporate these textures through key decorative elements like blankets, oversized pillows and layered area rugs. Can’t forget plaid! Incorporating this classic pattern to those same pieces adds a fun touch. There’s a color combination to complement any room.
- Gourd-geous lighting… Lighting can make a huge difference! We recommend playing around with different types of lighting at various heights and brightnesses. We love to keep it simple with string lights over the fireplace mantel or fall-scented candles on the coffee table and book shelves. If possible, turn the lights down low and ignite that fireplace. This will add to that relaxing, spooky feel we love so much during this season.
- A fab-boo-lous color pallette… Like the changing leaves, think warm colors. Incorporating earth tones and a monochromatic palette is a great way to reflect fall vibes. Think shades of orange or tan, deep red and purple, olive green or yellow. Natural tones like these give a nod to the fall foliage we adore so much. If you really want to make an impression, add some copper or gold elements. These can break up the monotony of your monochrome look while also tying everything together.
- Creep it natural… Adding some elements like wood, leaves, pumpkins, gourds, acorns or pine cones can really add to the look and be the finishing touch you need. Include some seasonal or dried floral arrangements in a tinted glass vase, mason jar or metal milk jug to really give it that extra touch.
We hope these suggestions help you create a space that brings you all the comfy fall feels. Remember, if home financing is in your future we are here to help. Call us at 952-942-0110 or visit CambriaMortgage.com/Connect to begin the home loan process. Happy decorating!
