Now that you've softened the floor, dressed the sofa, and decorated the table it's time to add inspiration to the walls. Consider creating your own works of art by taking photos of fall imagery and framing them in handsome wood or elegant metals. Most home furnishings stores carry a wide selection of framed prints landscapes, still lifes, Impressionist visions, abstract contemporaries. Special cards and notes you have received can also make a lovely statement as a framed memento. Don't forget children's artwork to add color and whimsy. By using ready-made, standard frames you can change out the work as often as new pieces are brought from school! You can also frame up a host of non-paper elements; try a family heirloom quilt hung on a wall, or a needlepoint scene crafted over several months, elegantly framed. Perhaps you have collectibles that would benefit from shadow boxing, like tickets and programs from shows or sports memorabilia. Make it personal and flexible to suit your mood and the changing seasons.
Reorganized Furniture: Temperatures are dipping and it is a great idea to group your furniture into cozy conversation areas, preferably near the fireplace. You can also place a set of furniture close to windows which get maximum sunlight during the day. Warm Scents: It's a great idea to use slightly darker more opaque hues of upholstery during fall as it will make your home feel cozy and warm. However, you can use potpourri oil or even burn cinnamon sticks on your stove for a long, lingering fragrance in your home.
A wreath was once hard to get a hold of and when you did, they were expensive but today, you can make your own wreath using different material and make it for a fraction of the price. You can start gathering fall items around the stores or in your own back yard. Twigs, acorns, and different colored leaves are just a few of the many different items you can use in your wreath. You can make it out of straw and wrap a ribbon around it or you can use artificial flowers, like mums. These are absolutely beautiful during the fall season. They come in an array of colors ad look great in barrels, baskets, or wreaths.
