The onset of fall marks a couple of big milestones, such as back-to-school, Halloween, andunfortunately for us and our electricity bills–a significant dip in temperature. Luckily there are a myriad of uncomplicated and budget-conscious ways to ensure the vibes inside your home aren’t indicative of the chilly weather outside. Keep reading for three sweet and simple décor ideas for your home, inspired by the commencement of autumn.  

 

Scented Candles 

In addition to working magic on a visual level, (a.k.a. ambiance), candles, particularly of the scented persuasion, can enforce fall-vibes on an olfactory level, as sense of smell is a strong factor in human perception. For strong autumn associations, opt for candles with scents incorporating vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon, and apple.  

 

Employ the Outdoors 

Is there anything more autumn-esque than a vase full of twigs, berries, and pinecones? We think not! Autumn-inspired crafts using nature are by far the most cost-effective approach to transitioning your decorating scheme into fall-mode, and fortunately, the DIY ideas available on the internet are practically endless. 

 

Colorful Throw Pillows 

Throw pillows are a super simple and relatively inexpensive way to breathe new life into any space, especially if you’re tasked with simply replacing the pillowcases. To celebrate autumn, opt for throw pillows that incorporate colors associated with the season, such as orange, red, and plum.
