While Fall is not all that different from summer time in Florida, it does mean some cooler weather and preparation for the holiday season. Although there is not much of a seasonal change, you can still bring fall into your home through your décor.
Decorating your home for fall doesn’t have to involve a complete makeover. By adding complimenting accents, you can enjoy a new home décor look before the holidays.
Use Fall’s Bounty
Apples, cranberries, pears, and pumpkins are all fall favorites and you can use them throughout your home. Place some Faux gourds on your mantle or use cranberries to surround a pillar candle inside a hurricane vase. Apples are a great touch in a basket or decorative bowl in the kitchen. White faux pumpkins are growing in popularity, as are colorful faux pumpkins. Choose colorful pumpkins that fit in with your current home décor.
Accent Your Home with Fall Scents
Cloves, spice, and cinnamon are all common autumn scents. Scents can be added through candles, essential oils, a cinnamon broom, or by making your own potpourri. You can also mix together ingredients like apples, oranges, cinnamon, and anise and simmer them on your stovetop to fill your home with a great aroma.
While you won’t be able to go outdoors to find brightly colored leaves in Florida, you can find faux foliage at your nearest craft store. Place pinecones in a decorative bowl in the living room. Find faux berry branches and place them in vases throughout your home. As Florida is not known for its fall foliage, use it sparingly when decorating during this time of year.
Swap out bright, summery home accessories, like throw pillows, for warm earthy tones, like red, orange, brown and gold. A new throw blanket is also a great way to add a touch of fall to the living room or your bedroom.
Cozy Up Outside
A fire pit is a great way to enjoy fall in Florida. It’s also a great time to cozy up on your patio furniture and read a book or dine outdoors. Add some brown, orange or gold throw pillows, use a new throw blanket for when the weather cools at night and add some lanterns for more lighting.
There are many ways you can enjoy fall in Florida and bring just a touch of the north down south.
