Blogtober Day 20: How to decorate your home for Autumn – Guest post

Happy October!

I hope you are well and enjoying Blogtober. Blogtober day 20 is another guest post from the wonderful Emily and this time she is letting us know how to decorate our home for Autumn.


I love fall. It’s a time for new beginnings, family gatherings, and the perfect excuse to bake pumpkin bread. But there’s another side of the season that I don’t love quite so much: cold weather and shorter days. Fortunately, there are ways to make your home feel more autumnal even if it’s still summertime outside. Here are my top tips for decorating your home for autumn:

Pumpkin spice everything

Pumpkin spice is a quintessential flavour of fall, and it comes in a variety of forms. You can use pumpkin spice to make desserts, drinks, and candles—the possibilities are endless! The best part about using pumpkin spice in your decorating? There’s no wrong way to do it. Spraying your home with an all-natural spray made from real pumpkin puree is sure to give your home the warm feeling you’ve been craving since summer began. Or maybe you’d rather infuse the air with a more subtle scent by lighting some candles marked down at Whole Foods (just look for ones that say “Pumpkin Spice” next to the usual candle tags). Either way will be sure to bring out the autumnal vibes in anyone who visits!

Autumnal-themed artwork

You can use artwork to decorate your walls in autumnal-themed pieces. This can be a perfect way to create a theme in your home and make it look more attractive and beautiful. You can also use different types of art, such as paintings, photographs or prints on canvas that has been customized with autumnal colours.

If you don’t want to hang up any artwork yet, think about using some small decorating items like vases or even figurines on display shelves instead! They are very useful because they help add colour vibrancy throughout the house while at the same time giving off an inviting atmosphere when people walk through their doors/windows etcetera.”

Autumn scented candles

Candles are a great way to add some colour and atmosphere to your home. If you’re looking for ways to decorate for the season, adding cosy scented candles is a great way to create an autumn ambience. You can choose from a wide variety of scents that evoke the changing leaves, cool breezes and warm fireside evenings of autumn—like pumpkin spice or cinnamon stick. Candles can be used as a centrepiece on your dining table, or as an accent piece in other areas of your home like bookcases and mantels. They also make excellent gifts during the holidays!

Candles are also ideal if you want to set the mood for romance this fall season. Think about how many times people have set their date night table with wine glasses and soft lighting before enjoying delicious food together in complete silence while waiting for dessert? We don’t want this scenario anymore! Instead, try using scented candles throughout your house so when you come inside after work there will be hints of sweetness throughout every room without being overpowering since most scents last longer than spicy foods.*

Gold, copper, and amber decor pieces

As you’re decorating your home for autumn, you may want to include some gold, copper and amber-coloured decor pieces. These colours are perfect for autumn because they represent the warm and cool tones that come with this season. You can use gold as a centrepiece around which to set up your dining room table or as a decorative accessory in your living room or bedroom.

Gold is a warm colour that represents prosperity, success, and happiness – all things we want during autumn! Copper is also a good choice if you want something with more of an earthy feel to it; this metal has been used for centuries due to its durability and ability to withstand extreme weather conditions including rainstorms (which happen frequently during fall). Amber is another great accent colour since it sits somewhere between both metals on the spectrum of warmth/coolness: it has enough red undertones from copper plus enough yellow from gold so that it doesn’t look too cold like stainless steel would if paired with these hues instead (think about how much warmer wood looks compared with metal).

Rustic wood decor

The rustic wood decor trend is a great way to add texture and depth to your home. It brings warmth and character, making it perfect for the kitchen, living room, or bedroom. You can use it year-round if you want to change things up as seasons change—just swap out the decorations for each season!

Rustic Wood Decor Ideas:

  • The simplest way to incorporate this look into your home is by hanging wall art with an ornate frame (like our Birch Tree Canvas Prints) over a mantlepiece or fireplace mantel. Or try placing a set of wooden plant stands on top of each other in a corner next to some large bookshelves filled with books.
  • You could also use rustic wood furniture pieces like benches or chairs (we love these ones!) instead of regular dining chairs if you’re going for an overall cosy feel in your dining room or kitchen table area that’s perfect for family dinners during autumn evenings spent enjoying each other’s company around the table after work/school has ended for another day!
Warm-coloured throw pillows and blankets

Throw pillows and blankets are a great way to add colour and texture to your home.

You can find throw blankets in many different colours, so you can get exactly what you’re looking for. Warm-coloured throws like browns, oranges and reds are perfect for fall decorating!

Throw pillows are also a great way to add colourful accents with little effort. They’re easy to switch out if you want to change things up or add some new life into your living space.

Fall leaf garland

A fall leaf garland is a great way to decorate your home for the season. To make this, simply gather some leaves and use a hot glue gun to stick them onto twine or yarn. To make it look more natural, try using brown and orange leaves; they’ll add the perfect pop of colour! Once you’ve finished making the garland, display it on your table or in your window so that everyone can see what kind of beautiful work you did!

With these autumnal decorations, your home will be ready for fall.

The season of Autumn is the best time to decorate your home. With its warm colours, crisp air and colourful leaves, Autumn is a perfect occasion to get creative with decorations and show off the best parts of your home. From autumn decorating ideas that are easy to do to some of the best ways to decorate your home for fall, here’s how you can make sure you’re ready for this season:

  • Add more colour! A lot of people think about fall as being “boring” because it doesn’t have any vibrant colours like summer or winter does. However, there are tons of different shades that work great in autumnal decorating (think reds, oranges and greens) and they’re all pretty easy to incorporate into any room! You can even play around with painting some furniture or walls if you want something more permanent than just adding some seasonal touches here and there throughout the house – either way, works well so long as it makes sense from an aesthetic standpoint!
  • Don’t forget about the candles! Candles are an important part of any setting because they add warmth both physically (through heat) as well as emotionally (through nostalgia). They also make great gifts too since they don’t cost much money but look expensive enough due to their fancy packaging which makes them perfect candidates for giving away during gift-giving seasons such as Christmas Eve/Day when everyone wants something special under their tree 🙂

With these autumnal decorations, your home will be ready for fall.

I hope you enjoy decorating your house.

Love always,

Gee xoxo
