10 ways to perfect your autumn home decor game
Accessorise your couch with fall colours and & cushions
When spending time in front the TV or reading a book on your comfy couch, the second best thing to do is curl up under a thick throw blanket and dip into the fall pillows & knitted cushion covers. Use autumn colours – various shades of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, pink, magenta, blue and brown – and make the most of the season by inviting these shades into your home. As the temperature drops, surrounding yourself with golds, reds and yellows will be an instant mood booster.
Add woollen tartan to a chair or armchair
As you decorate your sofa with pillows, you should do the same thing with your chairs and armchairs in your home. There is just no better way to transform a plain chair then adding a kaleidoscope of fall colours by using appropriate fabric. The moment your guests enter your dining room they will be amazed by the variety of options.
Scatter decorative pumpkins around your house
This step doesn’t require much explanation. Head to your nearest grocery store and stock up on small, decorative pumpkins. Go for whites and yellows for a more sophisticated look that helps your home transferring to winter, or pick oranges and greens for that really authentic autumn kick.
Add sweater to your candles
Don’t throw your old sweaters away just yet! Use your clear tealight holders & votive candle holders as a base and dress them up a bit by measuring the height of their sides first and then cutting of pieces of your sweater’s arm. It is not only adorable but a very cost conscious and earth-friendly option.
Fill a wase with acorns and sycamore leaves
Clear wases are just so versatile. In case you don’t really feel like fresh flowers anymore, the second best alternative is filling your wases with acorn and other loose crops such as walnut, chestnut, maroon or corn.
Light a pumpkin scented candle or use autumn lanterns

Fill a large bowl with fall-coloured leaves, branches and seeds to create a centerpiece on your table
Your imagination can really go wild with this one. Pinecones, leaves, crops, apples, pumpkins – bring the whole harvest into your home and give thanks for what nature has given us. I still remember the days when we created these in my school and then at home with my parents. We just went for a nice, relaxing walk to the nearby forest and picked up everything that caught our eyes. Then bringing all this home and arranging it together as an autumn home decor piece – little bit I knew about home decoration back then!- still reminds me of the great times we had together.
