How to: Transitioning from Summer to Fall Home Décor

Summer to Fall Home Décor

Fall inspires us all to change. Maybe it’s because we’re used to going back to school this time of year, maybe it’s because the leaves change colors or the temperature drops. Whatever it is, we like change in the fall. Of course, this means we also like to switch it up from summer to fall home décor. It can feel like a daunting task to transition your entire house from summer to fall, but it really can feel drastically different with some stylish fall home décor.

Swap Out Your Color Palette

  • Summer to Fall Home Décor

Lavender and pistachio green are great for spring and summer but fall welcomes in deeper shades. Rich jewel tones like navy, emerald green and dark teal are a refreshing change of pace. Or, go for a classic fall color palette of rust, burnt orange, mustard and burgundy to leave your space feeling warm and cozy. If you’re looking for something a little moodier, try working with blacks and grays. No matter what fall home color palette you choose, some different pops of color from your summer palette can really change the look and feel of your home.

Accent in Plaid Home Décor

Plaid is a fall classic — sometimes you stick with what’s good. You know that saying, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it”? Well plaid isn’t broke! Plaid is a great fall pattern and you can easily add it in to transition from summer to fall. Just look for plaid pillows, blankets, rugs and other accessories.

Bring in Velvet Home Accessories

Velvet accessories are perfect fall home décor because weightier fabrics feel cozy and still look chic. Velvet accent pillows are an easy way to incorporate velvet throughout the house without going overboard or spending a lot of dough.

Pile on the Throw Blankets and Rugs

  • Fall Rugs

  • Fall Throw Blankets

Throw blankets are such a great way to transition from summer to fall home décor because they invoke warm and fuzzy feelings. When you look at a throw blanket, don’t you just want to curl up by a fireplace with hot chocolate? We do! Similarly, rugs can make a room feel warm and cozy. So, swapping out a rug for a shaggy or furry one is perfect for fall.

Get Familiar with Tassels and Fringe

  • Tassle Pillows

  • Fringe Rug

Tassels and fringe are coming back in trending fall décor for 2019! Tassels and fringe take pillows, throw blankets and rugs from boring to fun. These accessories are the perfect way to add a little flair to your fall home décor without it being overwhelming.

Use Texture

Using texture is a good way to transition from summer to fall décor because it adds a little more substance to your space. Sweater material blankets, fall plants, vases with patterns, it all adds a little something to your home.

Incorporate Natural Elements

Fall Foliage
  • Pumpkins and Gourds

  • Wood Accessories

We tend to gravitate towards more earthy vibes when fall rolls around, so natural elements feel, well, natural to go from summer to fall home décor. Accessories like pumpkins, gourds, apples, pinecones and wood are all easy ways to add that nature vibe to your home to welcome fall indoors.

Changing out your home décor and accessories doesn’t have to be a complete overhaul. Just incorporate some fall elements here and there to change the look and feel and give your home that cozy feeling. We don’t blame you if you watch Beetlejuice while sipping hot chocolate when you’re done.
