Updating Your Rental’s Decor for Fall

With the temperature cooling and leaves falling, it’s time to prepare for the new season. Fall is the perfect time to make your home into a cozy and welcoming space. If you are a renter, there are plenty of easy ways to spice up your home’s interior and exterior for fall. Here are décor ideas to update your rental for autumn:

Colors

Having a color palette will create a cohesive atmosphere throughout your space, no matter the style décor you enjoy. Inspiration can be found outdoors, from the changing leaves to the glow of a bonfire. To conjure the colors of the season, look for warm tones. Deep reds, sunny golds, and earthy tans can all be utilized to bring warmth to your space.

Tabletops

To decorate a tabletop, take a cue from the changing foliage. Gather colorful leaves and branches in a vase to bring the outdoors in. For a beautiful and inexpensive centerpiece that reflects the season, arrange small pumpkins, gourds, or pinecones in a basket.

Textiles

One of the quickest ways transform the feeling of any room is to switch out a few textiles – such as pillows, blankets, and towels. A variety of textures helps to add interest to a space. Crisp plaids and sweater-like knits encompass a cozy, autumnal feel. Keep throws in close reach for when the weather gets cooler.

Scents

You don’t have to change the look of your home to change the feel of it; autumn can be evoked by scents associated with the season. As a safe alternative to burning candles, place a diffuser in an open area of the house. Look for scents such as cinnamon, pumpkin, or vanilla to create a warm, fragrant atmosphere throughout your home.

Outdoors

Make the outside of your home just as welcoming as the inside with small touches. One of the easiest ways to ring in the season is by simply arranging pumpkins on the front steps (carving optional!). A welcome mat can brighten any entrance while also keeping muddy shoes at bay. To decorate a door, hang a wreath of leaves, pinecones, or other seasonal options – just be sure to use non-permanent devices such as 3M hooks to hang them.
