5 Accent Piece Ideas for Fall

As the summer winds down and the kids return to school, so many of us start dreaming of oranges, reds, and pumpkin spice everything. Fall is such a beautiful season that it’s hard to wait for the exact right date (Sept. 23rd!) to pull out the boxes of autumn decorations lining the closet. And, why should you? Have a little home decor cheer just a little early with these 5 accent piece ideas that are perfect for the crisp fall days to come:

Swapping your regular pillows and blankets with themed varieties brings the coziness of fall right into your living room or bedroom. Like Christmas, there are so many different choices for fall, from plaid, cabin home feels to classic pillows with pumpkin and gourd designs. Have fun browsing through your local home store (with PSL in hand, of course) and deciding what autumn theme best suits your home. Really ready to dive into fall? Go ahead and check out those  Hocus Pocus themed pillows and blankets that are popping up everywhere. After all, who says Halloween can’t start in September, too? 

Have Fun with Rugs

It’s amazing how just switching out floor rugs can change the entire mood of your home. Leafy oranges, sunflower yellows, crisp burgundies, and even soft purples are stunning rug color choices for fall and will look spectacular alongside your decorations. For outside, don’t forget to change out your welcome mat for something that fits the season, like these Pumpkin Spice rugs from Etsy.

Table Cloths, Candles, and Hand Towels, Oh, My!

The fun of decorating for fall is in the tiniest details. Add some autumn hand towels in the kitchen and bathroom, throw a fall tablecloth on the dining room table, and place seasonal candles throughout the house for those familiar smells of autumn. If you feel like getting creative, you can even make a fall display or centerpiece consisting of faux leaves and autumn knicknacks from the craft store. Fall-colored flowers, mini pumpkins, herbs, painted mason jars, and hurricane candle holders are all elegant contributions to any home display.

Refresh Your Home with New Furniture Accent Pieces

If you’re really craving a change this fall, adding rustic or cabin style furniture pieces to your home is ideal for the fall season. Best of all, these styles will continue to be fitting alongside the decor of winter and even next summer, when thoughts of being back on the lake have you wishing for the return of warmer temperatures again. Think warm-colored sofas, log end tables, rustic wooden bookshelves, and decorative storage pieces.

Take It Outside

Putting up a fall wreath is a given, but creating a welcoming display on your porch or patio similar to your indoor displays or centerpieces lets the cozy begin before the guests walk in. Outdoor chairs with pops of fall colors, buckets of mums, and of course, pumpkins, invite visitors to sit back and enjoy the beauty and wonder of fall.
