1.  Picture Perfect Fall Decorating
If you’re a closet shutterbug, Redesign + More can help you take photographs of pretty fall foliage or other scenes that say “fall” to you.  The idea is to blow the photos up and display them on tables or, create a feature wall in your home using picture rails. It’s fun to display photographs in frames of varying shapes, sizes and finishes for amped-up visual appeal. You can change up photos each season for a continually refreshed look and feel.

2.  Fall Welcome Wreaths
Wreaths are traditionally associated with Christmas but more and more, wreaths are becoming a fall decorating essential as well. Adorn your front door with a wreath made out of wheat, berries, pinecones or acorns for a simple but elegant way to welcome guests to your home. A simple pinecone wreath, for example, can be updated for the holidays with the easy addition of red berries, green leaves and ribbon.

3.  Simple Slipcovers and Toss Pillows
Updating your home doesn’t have to mean buying all new furniture. Your existing furniture can get an instant makeover by using slipcovers and toss pillows. Replace cotton slipcovers and toss pillows in warm fall colors like chocolate brown, green, red and rust.

4.  Clusters of Candles during the Fall Season
Candles add a warm glow to any room in the home. Place scented candles in large hurricane vases. Nestle the vases in individual bases made from pinecones or fauxfall berries. Candles with woodsy fragrances like pine or balsam or sweet scents like vanilla or cranberry will send a delightful aroma throughout your home.

5.  Mad for Plaid My Fall Favorite
Plaid is a fall favorite.  Replace cotton throws and cushions with ones graced with plaid, this is an easy way to transition your home from summer to fall. Grays, reds, greens and navy blues are traditional plaid colors and perfectly suit a fall-themed home.

6.  Pretty Pumpkins for Fall
Traditionally on display during Thanksgiving and Halloween, pumpkins make a lovely all-season fall addition. But how do you use them as decorative items, rather than jack-o-lanterns? Simply place a group of three pumpkins on your front porch on top of a welcome mat. Or, carve the insides out of a medium-sized pumpkin and fill the shell with flowers for a beautiful and natural floral display. Try painting a large pumpkin white, and then paint an interesting pattern on top in a different color. Display on a cake stand for a veritably unique centerpiece!

7.  A Bounty of Books & Hot Tea, Ready for Fall?
Fall is the perfect time to curl up with a hot cup of tea and a good book. Instead of leaving your books perfectly lined up on your bookcase, pick out the ones you plan to read for the season. Display them in neat stacks on tables around the house. It won’t cost you anything and will also motivate you to read those books that have been collecting dust on your bookshelf! (I prefer a cup of hot tea with a flavored creamer its absolutely delicious) 

8.  Gorgeous Garlands will bring the Fall Indoors
Pinecones can easily be strung together on a piece of twine to make a long and lovely garland. Beautiful and natural, a pinecone garland looks stunning strung along a staircase banister or a mantelpiece. Try this in your home.

9.  Change to a Fall Color Palette
A simple home redesign is to add fall colors to your home this will provide a fresh, updated feeling. Change out light-colored bathroom towels for ones in rich fall browns and oranges. Switch your bed linens from summer’s light, white cottons to coffee-colored flannels for warmth on cool nights.

10.  Area rugs for fall and winter
If you’ve got wood or tile flooring throughout your home, warm things up with area rugs during the fall and winter months. Hand-woven or hand-loomed rugs in spice colors like cinnamon, paprika and saffron will instantly give any room a pop ofcolor while also making things a bit more comfortable underfoot.
