One of the most enjoyable parts of decorating your home is getting to swap out seasonal items. Whether you like to make a statement with your autumn decor, or you prefer subtle nods to the changing climate, there are plenty of budget-friendly and beautiful additions to be found. Achieve that sense of coziness and warmth that you want in the fall by taking inspiration from these easy swaps and upgrades:
1. Bird Feeder
There’s nothing nicer in any season than bird watching while you relax with a cup of coffee. And this charming antique-style feeder makes for a design statement that will attract birds and compliments alike.
Whether it’s in an outdoor pit or indoor fireplace, a nice bright blaze is instantly cozy and calming. Elevate the look of your wood stack by piling it into this equally chic and practical copper-colored bin.
Use these elegant lights to add ambience to any gathering and warmth to those frosty nights.
The Living Room
Sometimes your wall décor needs a small refresher to reflect the changing of the seasons. Quickly swap out a summery painting with these elegant sconces, and you’ll have the perfect metallic accent that will last you through the winter, too.
5. Throw Pillow
Combine a few pillows in warm autumnal hues to bring in a subtle nod to the fall foliage. The plantlike embroidery and velvet backing on this one are especially fitting.
This jewel toned tray is perfect for adding a sense of depth and luxury to a coffee or side table.
The Dining Room
7. Wheat Sheaf
Create a sophisticated twist on a rustic theme by starting with these wheat sheaves as table décor.
Place the wheat sheaves in simple cylindrical vases like these; later in the year they can be filled with pine cones or small ornaments.
The plaid pattern on these placemats looks chic when layered with a crimson or cream tablecloth.
10. Wine Rack
Simple rattan chargers help to complete the countryside appeal of your dining setup, and can be used year-round!
Artisanal stoneware baking dishes like these can be appropriated for more than just delicious seasonal dishes; the smaller ones can pull double duty as candy and nut dishes.
Copper-topped canisters bring antique warmth to all that chrome plating in kitchens.
Wreaths hung on interior doors are always a fun addition, especially when updated in a chicly monochromatic flame red.
When you’re choosing fall-ready décor, it’s easy to find pieces that suit your needs. Whether that means items that can be incorporated into other seasons, or budget-friendly knick-knacks that are easily swapped out for holiday trinkets, hopefully these suggestions have given you an idea or two. An elegant, invitingly autumnal home is just a few embellishments away.
