Fall decorating projects are a great idea considering your kids are back at school and the chilly weather outside. You can utilize your time to go through your cupboards and find items which you can use to add to your home decor. Natural Appeal: You can gather a number of organic elements to decorate your home for fall. Colored leaves, pumpkins and gourds, dried corn, fruits or any such decorations are a great idea and you can use them creatively for simple and beautiful arrangements around your home. For instance you can use a rustic basket, fill it with fresh apples, throw in some preserved leaves and you have a great decorative piece.
It's the little things. Lampshades and picture frame mats are often overlooked when updating for the season, but changing them is an easy and effective way to change a room. Whether it's shades on your overhead lighting fixture or the lampshades in your family room, add a new, colorful shade to create a different feeling in the room. If you picture frame mats are white/cream consider adding a mat with color to add a pop to your pictures. Use the same color on all mats to unify your photos.
Candles have become ever popular accent today. Look for texture like beeswax, and subtle colors ivory, gold, bronzes and coppers to add a gleam. Available in a wide range of hues, scents, shapes and sizes - you can mix and match to suit your taste. Remember to vary the heights and use odd numbered groupings for a more eclectic and festive feel. Include an array of shapes too, cylindrical, square, triangular, and round are among the most popular. Avoid placing candles on the same surface where there is a lamp - good rule of thumb is to avoid using candles where you have another light source. Use scented candles sparingly and with care so as not to compete with each other. Many are made without scent, particularly for those persons who may be allergy sensitive.
