General Fall Décor

One of the best ways to make your home feel even more like fall is with perfectly themed décor. Pumpkins and autumn leaves are one of the top go-to items tenants use to dress up a space. It does not stop there! If you have mantels and/or banisters, autumn wreaths and fall decorations are the perfect addition. You can make this the staple to your home or one of many areas. If you do not wish to use traditional fall accents, you can always incorporate fall colors. Add vases with fall colored flowers around your home. You can also add red or orange throw pillows or blankets in your living room areas or on your bed.

Dining Areas

Your dining room has plenty of opportunities to get a fall feeling. First, add in a gorgeous centerpiece on your table. A centerpiece consisting of leaves surrounding a candle is a simple idea. You can also add a vase full of autumn flowers to add a beautiful pop of color. Choose red, orange, and yellow Gerber daisies, mums and gourds. A cornucopia is a great idea as well. Pair your centerpieces with fall themed napkins in matching colors. Look at your local home store for napkin rings that have a fall theme. Fall themed table runners are also the perfect accent piece. Any of these items can be found to accommodate any budget.

Scents

What’s better than the smell of pumpkin or cinnamon apple pie in the fall? There are a variety of ways you can add great fall scents to your apartment. One of the easiest ways is with candles.
