Seasonal Decorating Inspiration for Fall Home Decor
Seasons change and so should your home decor! While the weather slowly cools down in Charlotte, it’s time to give your home design a revival and get your house ready for holiday guests and parties. Welcome the new season by swapping out your summer and spring decorations and instead start thinking about how to incorporate various fall seasonal items. Having seasonal decor throughout your home will get you in the spirit of the season and will impress your guests over the holidays.
Pumpkins, Gourds, and Squash
Pumpkins are typically the main focus once fall begins to bear its changing leaves. Whether it’s our coffee, our desserts, or our scented candles – pumpkins steal the show. Give your home that fall feeling by using pumpkins and gourds in your design plans. Better Homes and Gardens suggests hollowing out different sizes of gourds and squashes to use as a vase or candle holder. Decorating pumpkins can be a fun activity with family and friends and the finished products are great additions to these fall-themed arrangements.
Fall Front Porch Curb Appeal
The curb appeal of a home is always a main focal point. Make that first impression intentional by matching it with the current season. Adding outdoor furniture or decorations that are on theme with the season can create a warm and inviting entry to the home. Add rocking chairs with plaid blankets or wreaths with your favorite foliage and get creative with your outdoor aesthetic.
Assembling seasonal centerpieces and runners can help bring a tablescape to life over the holidays. Using elements that are typically paired with the season like plaid, gourds, neutral colors, and fall flowers can add a special touch to your meal while hosting guests. Incorporating greenery like branches with berries, chrysanthemums and pansies, fountain grass and sage, and other perennials can also bring your dining areas to life.
Bring the Outside in
Connecting your outdoor space with the interior of the home creates a more inviting atmosphere for your holiday guests. The outdoors in the fall, especially in North Carolina, are always a crowd favorite whether you are picking apples, decorating pumpkins, or sitting by the fire under a blanket. Use your favorite outdoor activities as part of your design inspiration on porches and patios to add a personal touch to your home’s entryways.
As the seasons change, use this time of year as inspiration for your home design plans. Once your home fits the aesthetic of the season, it will be time for holiday parties and hosting. Your guests will be impressed by your attention to detail and look forward to seeing your seasonal home design ideas come to life again next year.
