The splendor of fall is on the horizon at 85 East End. Considering nature's rustic appeal and earth-tone colors during the fall season, you may be excited about decorating. Get the most out of apartment living by fusing your favorite outdoor elements and colors into your fall apartment decor.
Fall Decor You Need
Opt for small furniture or decor pieces with warm, gold-tone hardware, like antique brass and burnished bronze.
Natural Wood Look
Choose light and rough wood finishes. The look of fall is rustic and distressed, so fall decor elements should look very organic, bare, and untreated.
Fall decor should be free and flowing rather than uniform and structured. Random and imperfect rather than symmetry and perfection. Remember, arrange a setting as if you found it in nature. When in Doubt, Turn to Burlap. At any point while arranging your decor, if you feel as though you are overdoing it with colors, textures, and patterns, balance the overload with the rustic, neutral look of burlap. A burlap tablecloth or window panels can instantly tone down busy decor while staying with the fall theme.
Try These DIY Projects This Season
Mason jars, candleholders, and vases filled with small fall elements are a quick and easy way to welcome the upcoming cozy season. Some ideas for fillers are candy corn, kernels of un-popped popcorn, tiny pinecones, and crushed fall leaves. Bonus points if you tie a raffia or burlap bow around the jar/vase. A couple of fall-inspired garlands made from real fall leaves, dried fruit, pinecones, and/or cinnamon sticks are perfect fall touches you can add to your mantle, staircase, or a doorway.
Fall In Love with Your Cozy Space
Perhaps the most enduring qualities of fall decor is it looks inviting and cozy. Too add the finishing touch and unify your new fall decor, invest in a few new autumn-inspired candles, golden fairy lights, and/or scattered intimate lighting to create comfortable, cozy spaces in your apartment.
Fall is about reaping the rewards of hard work, and after a nice evening dinner on the town, you will look forward to coming home to a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
