Have you ever noticed a commonality across all gorgeous homes? You’ll notice that all fashionable homes do one thing: they change with the seasons, whether you’re looking at them intently in a magazine or on your Instagram feed.
Adding a few seasonal touches may completely change your house into a warm and cosy haven when autumn arrives, even if it may seem easy. Here are the greatest ways to decorate your home for autumn, from foliage wreaths to fragrant candles.

Add chunky blankets
A cheap approach to increase cosiness in your home is to layer blankets over your furniture, including your couches, chairs, and bedding. Consider thick, Scandi-style sweaters and tasselled throws as the weather starts to cool.
Light autumnal candles
A tried-and-true method of making your home seem cosy when the weather outside grows cooler and our evenings grow longer is to fill your room with a flickering glow and seasonally appropriate aroma. Pick candles with cosy, autumn-themed scents like patchouli, amber, and musk. As far as autumnal decorating ideas go, this is a simple yet effective one!
Garlands should not just be used throughout the winter, just like wreaths. They will create a cosy and inviting atmosphere in your home whether draped over a mantelpiece or around a stairway. Choose a plain leaf garland and connect seasonal imitation greenery, flowers, berries, and pumpkins using thin green wire for a cost-effective choice. You can simply switch these out with pinecones, baubles, and fairy lights when Christmas time rolls around!
Additionally, why not use the beautiful colours and textures of the autumn season into your interior design? You can easily change out the branches in a glass vase you created by cutting them from your trees as needed. Put the leaves on display in a metal bucket for an industrial look. The metal will draw attention to the leaves’ colour and texture. Bring some logs inside, and arrange them on a faux fur rug or in a log container beside the fireplace for a cosy display.
Put up fairy lights
Any lover of interior design knows that a simple string of sparkling fairy lights can make any room into something truly enchanting. Your home will be warm and inviting in no time if you cover an entire wall with a net of soft white lights, fill a glass jar with glittering wire lights, or simply hang a string over your mantelpiece.
Display fresh flower arrangements
If dried grasses aren’t your style, why not decorate your home with a lovely, fresh flower arrangement instead? For a truly jaw-dropping presentation, seek out bouquets with deep reds, oranges, and yellows and embellish them with your own berries and floristry twigs. If this sounds excessive, consider some plain eucalyptus stems in a vase; they look lovely on a kitchen island or a bedroom wadrdobe (take a look at these Wardrobe Direct gems!) and look fresh in a corridor.
Adopt a Halloween theme to include kid-friendly indoor autumn décor. Hang frightening decorations around your house for everyone to appreciate, like as skulls or bats. Simple design choices, such a garland with a black skull theme to hang on your mantel, will help you avoid overcrowding the room. Your sofa will get a fun yet cosy touch from plush pumpkin pillows.
Opt for plaid patterns and soft leather accents
There are other seasons for plaid (or Scotland). Choose some plaid to swiftly and effectively evoke the autumnal season. This attractive design may transform any item of decor into a autumn favourite as long as the colour scheme reflects the foliage outdoors. A subdued beige and brown checkered blanket or orange plaid throw pillows placed against white chairs will make the ideal autumn complement in any room.
You can also choose leather for a more sophisticated way to incorporate autumn decor. The ideal colour scheme is embodied by leather, which adds a contemporary edge to autumnal design. The material has a unique texture and can be used all the way through the winter. To coordinate with the rest of your autumn decor, add leather elements in various tones of brown and caramel around your house. Add leather ottomans to your hall to create a friendly atmosphere and provide guests with a spot to sit and take off their shoes. Slide your Ottomon under a table while it’s not in use to keep the walkway free.
Try DIY decor
Even though it tends to be less expensive, DIY decorations can expand your options for autumn decorating. Consider using artificial apples as candle holders on your side tables, soap in the shape of a pumpkin in your bathroom, and DIY rustic jar toppers in your kitchen. For a vibrant splash of colour, create floral arrangements using mums and sunflowers, two seasonal flowers, or try some autumn activities for kids like leaf painting and food-themed projects.
