Fall Interior Design & Decorating Ideas

Decorating for the fall season is as easy as pumpkin pie! If you want to impress your Thanksgiving guests with some of the things that make fall so beautiful, take a look at these ideas to accessorize your home with seasonal interior design.

Bring the outside in to your interior design by adding fresh fall flowers to your home. Sunflowers and alstromeria are great choices because they pop with the traditional yellows, reds, and oranges of fall and they'll remain beautiful for up to a week. The trick to keeping blooms fresh is to remove all leaves below the water line and change out the water every few days.

Create the illusion of fall in the middle of an oak forest by including fall foliage in your interior deisgn. Head to the craft store and pick up some silk autumn leaves if you can't make it up to the mountains to collect any fresh specimens and sprinkle them on your bookshelves, mantel, or any flat surface. You can also trade out your bookends with a small pumpkin for a bit of an extra touch.

Warm up your interior with accessories in autumn's hues. Switch out those blue pillows with some burnished gold ones and take that brown leather chair out of the garage and bring it into the spotlight. Combined with the two previous ideas, this will make your decor shine!

Don't forget to honor the season's traditions and incorporate the time-honored symbol of harvest, the cornucopia. Fill it with fruit, vegetables, gourds, or flowers and make it your own!
