As autumn begins to usher in cooler temperatures, crisp breezes and brightly colored, falling leaves, it’s time to start bringing the style and color of the new season into your home. Adding pops of fall colors and seasonal decor to your front door, patio and living spaces is easy and budget-friendly, and you don’t have to be a master crafter or expert designer to get the job done.

Create a warm, inviting home filled with the colors and textures of the season with our simple autumn design ideas. Whether you prefer to fill your home with fall by way of fresh, baked goods and colorful centerpieces or with seasonal textiles, wreaths and more, we have decor ideas we know you’ll love!

Here are 5 autumn decorating ideas we love to help you bring this beautiful season into your home!

Centerpiece Style
Creating a beautiful fall centerpiece is simple, affordable and doesn’t require a lot of time. Choose a large copper or glass bowl and place assorted gourds of varying shapes, sizes and colors into the bowl, and voila! You'll have a unique, seasonal centerpiece that you can modify as you like throughout the season.

Fresh Flowers
Pick up a few seasonal vases and place fresh sunflowers or alstromeria in them for a truly autumnal look. Place vases throughout your home, including on your dining room table, beside your bed, on your desk and even in in your bathroom for a vibrant, seasonal look.

Cozy Up the Kitchen
Autumn is certainly the season when cooks like to get back in the kitchen to prepare hearty stews and soups or baked goods like fresh breads, pumpkin muffins and an assortment of seasonal pies. Since you’ll be spending more time in your kitchen, cozy it up by decorating it for autumn with seasonal hand towels, oven mitts and cookware. Break out your copper mugs and seasonal trays, and keep a small vase of sunflowers out to brighten up your kitchen space.

Colorful Textiles
A simple way to bring the feeling of fall into your home is to add seasonal textiles to the rooms in your apartment. Grab a few plaid throw blankets in fall colors of red, yellow, orange and gold. Choose seasonal pillow covers for your throw pillows, patterned and colorful hand towels and a bright, autumnal tablecloth to finish off the look!

Pumpkins, Gourds and More
Gather up a variety of pumpkins and gourds in all shapes and sizes, and place them outside your front door, along your patio or even on top of your table for decoration. The bright pops of orange, yellow, green and gold will instantly transform your front step and your home into fall ready.
