If you’re anything like me, I always like to keep my home décor updated for each season. With many of us spending so much time at home this year, it’s great to keep your interior decoration varied and up-to-date. Without spending much money at all, you can make your home look totally different for each season. Today I’m going to share with you how to decorate for fall and winter. These are all easy, budget-friendly, and chic fall décor ideas to spruce up your home this season.
One of the easiest ways to make your home feel cozy and warmer this winter is to lower the lighting around your home. After doing this, you can add additional lamps and fairy lights around the house to bring more warmth into your space.
If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace, lighting it is one of the best winter activities and will make any home feel welcoming this winter. The fireplace is the perfect central focus area for winter decoration, and you can do so much to change the dynamic of a room. Try adding candles on either side of the fire with fall and winter adornments above the mantel. Don’t forget about the fireplace logs. You can always change out traditional wood logs for white birchwood logs to highlight the fireplace even more. An alternative to wood logs is pillar candles placed in the fireplace. Pillar candles allow you to still achieve a cozy fireplace scene without using wood logs. Finish off the fireplace with a decorative fireplace screen. Click here for ideas.
Create a Fall Wreath
Making your own fall wreath is an inexpensive way to create a warm first impression of your home. There are so many different creative ways to put one of these together, and the materials you choose to add to your wreath are completely up to you. Personally, I think pampas grass, pine cones, a hint of glitter, and mini dried florals look fantastic for fall, but if you are looking to stretch the wreath through to winter, consider making one with curled orange and red ribbons. Paper & Stitch has a great DIY tutorial on making fall wreaths.

Create a Winter Theme Centerpiece
With the holidays approaching, this time of year is usually packed with family gatherings and events. While this may not be the case so much this year, intimate dinner parties are a good option for smaller groups to gather. Create a beautiful centerpiece for your dining table that’s fit for the season. Simply take a bowl or urn of your choice, and fill it with greenery, winter flowers, pine cones, and some fun winter or holiday adornments. Aim for a unique and impressive centerpiece to add flair at your next holiday dinner party.

Layer Textiles in the Bedrooms
One of my top interior design tips for winter is to layer textiles in the bedrooms. Especially if you are welcoming guests to stay with you this winter, it’s the perfect way to make the bed look sumptuous and welcoming. Add multiple cushions on top of each bed, and layer throws on top of the quilt. Especially if you live in a colder climate, you’ll appreciate snuggling under the layers each night when you head to bed!
It’s easy to make simple switches around the home each season to keep your décor fresh and modern. None of these ideas will cost much to implement, yet you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a new home ready for the new season to begin!
