Change your view. The view out of your windows changes with the season, so couldn't your window treatments change, too? If you have curtain panels consider changing them to a more seasonal color, whether retail or custom. You may also want to consider thermal panels that can help keep the cold out as the temperature drops. If you have blinds or roman shades you can do the same thing-update them with warmer, fall colors, or in either case, update an existing valance on your windows.
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.
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.
