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.
A new 'Welcome.' Update your exterior entry way with a new welcome mat, one that can handle the fall/winter traffic and that coordinates with your home. Blanket your rooms with warmth. On your bed and sofa, or on a window seat, add a warm blanket in a fall color that coordinates with your decor (think warm oranges, reds, plums, browns, greens or deep gold tones). This is both practical and beautiful-adding a new color to an often-used living space creates an instant update. If you are changing your entire bedding for the season, consider changing your bed skirt, too.
Outside, there are many ways to celebrate the autumn. If you have front steps, you may want to place pumpkins, gourds, straw and the like on them, and you can even make a scarecrow to sit on your porch. When trees in your neighborhood shed orange and golden leaves, pick them up and add them to your outside collection of fall decorations. If you are a gardener, buy a collection of mums to spread out amongst the front yard. Mums come in many pretty colors and are usually easy to keep if you just water them every day. They bring much beauty to your landscape.
