Five Ways to Bring the Fall Mood into Your Home

We are finally into the thick of fall, which means the decorating you started doing a month ago is totally valid now!  Ok, so if your not super fall crazed like me maybe you haven't started decorating yet and if that's the case I totally have your back because it's never too late (or early) to start!  Here are my favorite ways to strike the fall mood in our house... 

1. Lighting // This is something that I actually prefer all year round but I especially enjoy it during the fall and winter seasons.  Instead of using standard light bulbs in my lamps I like to use LED vintage style bulbs.  They give off this warm ambient glow that I just love.  It's so simple but it makes a huge difference and can be especially atmospheric when your staying up late with a good book.  

2. Dress up your couches // Throw pillows can really help change up the mood in your home.  And don't worry, if you aren't ready to put up your millennial pink faux fur pillows that I know you had out all of spring and summer you don't have to because millennial pink pairs beautifully with traditional fall colors like burnt orange and yellow.  In addition to color palette play around with textures.  Velvet isn't just fall's favorite fashion trend, it can also instantly make your space feel more cozy and glam!

3. Switch up your coffee table // I usually keep books and flowers on mine so I just switched my books out for covers that looked more autumnal and I like to add dyed eucalyptus to all of my floral arrangements to further play around with color.  I also picked up this giant gold acorn from Target that my husband despises but I think it's a nice touch.  So just playing around with little accessories and nicknacks until you come up with something you love is a great way to get into the spirit.  

4. Hang a fall banner // I love a good banner, especially if it includes glitter!  It's a great way to add a little bit of whimsy to your space!  The fire place is of course, the most traditional place to hang a banner but if you don't have one try hanging one on a bookshelf or even on your headboard! I found some great garland DIY inspo here!

5. Bring in the fall scents // So candles are great and trust me I have plenty of fall candles dotted around my house but my very favorite thing is when they start bringing out the cinnamon scented pinecones.  There is just something about the smell cinnamon that just makes my home feel so cozy and festive.  The thing about these pinecones is that you kind of get them as decoration and then the scent is so strong that you can always smell them when you walk into a room.  You can get a big bag of them from most stores like Target or Walmart for less than five dollars and they last for weeks.  I just love them so much and can't recommend them enough! 

So there you have it, some of my favorite ways to bring in the fall spirit.  I hope you all are having a wonderful fall season full of pumpkin patches and spiced lattes!
