In the are of Charlotte North Carolina Fall is the perfect time to get your home organized for the winter ahead and inject fresh interior redesign and decorating ideas that feel warm, welcoming and cozy. Ready to update your home for fall?

1 Picture perfect Interior Redesign

If you’re a closet shutterbug, release your inner talent and get snapping! Take photographs of pretty fall foliage or other scenes that say “autumn” to you. Blow your photos up and display them on tables or, create a feature wall in your home using picture rails. Display your photographs in frames of varying shapes, sizes and finishes for amped-up visual appeal. You can change up your photos each season for a continually refreshed look and feel. 


2 Welcome wreaths

Wreaths are traditionally associated with Christmas but more and more, wreaths are becoming a fall decorating essential as well. Adorn your front door with a wreath made out of wheat, berries, pinecones or acorns for a simple but elegant way to welcome guests to your home. A simple pinecone wreath, for example, can be updated for the holidays with the easy addition of red berries, green leaves and ribbon.


3 Simple slipcovers

Updating your home doesn’t have to mean blowing a bundle on new furniture. Your existing furniture can get an instant makeover by using slipcovers. Replace cotton slipcovers with thicker fabrics like faux suede and jacquard ones in warm fall colors like chocolate brown, evergreen and rust.

4 Clusters of candles

Candles add a warm glow to any room in the home. Place scented candles in large hurricane vases. Nestle the vases in individual bases made from pinecones or faux fall berries. Candles with woodsy fragrances like pine or balsam or sweet scents like vanilla or cranberry will send a delightful aroma wafting through the air of your home.


5 Mad for plaid

Plaid is a fall favorite. Calling forth thoughts of the Scottish countryside, this pastoral pattern is an easy way to transition your home from summer to fall. Replace cotton throws and cushions with ones graced with plaid. Grays, reds, greens and navy blues are traditional plaid colors and perfectly suit a fall-themed home.


Home Staging


6 Pretty pumpkins

Traditionally on display during Thanksgiving and Halloween, pumpkins make a lovely all-season fall addition. But how do you use them as decorative items, rather than jack-o-lanterns? Simply place a group of three pumpkins on your front porch on top of a welcome mat. Or, carve the insides out of a medium-sized pumpkin and fill the shell with flowers for a beautiful and natural floral display. Try painting a large pumpkin white, and then paint an interesting pattern on top in a different color. Display on a cake stand for a veritably unique centerpiece!


Home Makeover


7 A bounty of books

Fall is the perfect time to curl up with a hot cup of tea and a good book. Instead of leaving your books perfectly lined up on your bookcase, pick out the ones you plan to read for the season. Display them in neat stacks on tables around the house. It won’t cost you anything and will also motivate you to read those books that have been collecting dust on your bookshelf!


8 Gorgeous garlands

Pinecones can easily be strung together on a piece of twine to make a long and lovely garland. Beautiful and natural, a pinecone garland looks stunning strung along a staircase banister or a mantelpiece.


9 Change your color palette

A simple interior redesign by adding fall colors to your home will provide a fresh, updated feeling. Swap out light-colored bathroom towels for ones in rich browns and oranges. Switch your bed linens from summer’s light, white cottons to coffee-colored flannels for warmth on cool nights. Add jewel-tone throws and cushions to your sofa.

10 Area rugs

If you’ve got wood or tile flooring throughout your house, warm things up with area rugs during the fall and winter months. Hand-woven or hand-loomed rugs in spice colors like cinnamon, paprika and saffron will instantly pop in a space while also making things a bit more comfortable underfoot.

Peggy where do you get your slipcovers? I am assuming online? I have been looking for some nice white ones with a skirt. Let me know if you have a good source. Kym

I like Fall except we don't have it in Florida!!  A few mini pumpkins in the grocery store is about as Fall-like as it gets around here!!  (Well, and all the snowbirds starting to move down for 6 months...traffic gets heavier....does that count?)  Wish we had trees whose leaves would looks magical from afar!
