I get many decorating ideas from reading home magazines or from visiting the websites of professional interior designers that show portfolios of their design projects. These are a couple of the places I look to for inspiration to decorate my home. I notice how furniture is arranged in living room spaces, the color palettes being used and take note of the accent furnishings that complete the décor.

Hang a fall-themed wreath on your front door. Use corn stalks, straw, pumpkins and other hearty fall vegetables as decorating accessories. Birch branches, long twigs and corn stalks can fill a large vase for a spectacular autumn arrangement. Tie a wide orange, yellow or red ribbon around the vase to finish off the look.

But then, why not play around with textures and combinations. For instance, put together a collage of different sections and you might even add pictures of yourself and your spouse for a personal touch. Or you could place two matching mirrors on either side of the bed above the side table lamps for softer light diffusion that is so very romantic.

This is because the rug is constantly being rubbed and crushed against the floor when anyone walks on it. A rug pad will cushion the rug and keep it looking good for a lot longer than just having the rug on the floor. You don't want your new rug to age prematurely.

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.

Laces, tassels, and other various forms of ornamentation often adorn stately valances and flowing drapes. Scalloped sheer fabrics and sometimes lace are common. The trend seems to be that the focal point is the window treatments, not the windows. Alternatively, another beautiful Victorian look requires scrapping the blinds and instead using mosaic stained windows.

When adding throw pillows into the mix it is always safest to go with a somewhat limited color palette and big geometric patterns. Textures such as cotton and linen are the best fabrics though silk throw pillows do have a place in certain modern settings. If you really like a lot of color then the best bet is to snatch the color palette from an existing piece of art or "busy" decorative item.
