Ready to swap out your summer décor for fall, but don’t want to resort to the traditional orange pumpkins, plastic wreaths of leaves, or bowls of pine cones? There are some modern ways to get your condo ready for the cooler months without feeling like an autumn cliché.
Take a look at these seven ways to bring fall warmth into your home without compromising on your taste in design.
Mugs, trays, cocktail shakers, and other barware in shiny metals add a sophisticated feel to any gathering. With its rich bronze color, copper has an especially fall vibe, but stainless steel and gold can work, too. Don’t forget to include some fall liquors in your bar, such as vodka and ginger beer for Moscow Mules and whiskey for Hot Toddies. Not a copper fan? Pick a different metal, like silver or even a platinum hue. Not a liquor fan? Set up a coffee tray with the same idea instead.
Yes, orange pumpkins are boring, but there’s a lot more you can do. Why not add glitz and glamour to your pumpkins in a DIY manner by painting them and adding a glittery design? Or try purchasing white pumpkins and arranging them by your entryway or on your dining table. Find new ways to add a twist to old designs.
One simple way to give your condo a cozier feel is to add throw pillows to the couch, or simply exchange your summer pillows for more autumnal ones. Replace any pillows you have in light fabrics or airy prints with richer colors in thicker fabrics (like velvet, for example). Add a coordinating throw pillow or two in luxe plush or faux fur, and you’ll feel like curling up on the couch anytime.
Modern Table Linens
Whether it’s a tablecloth, table runner, linen napkins, or a combination thereof, simply adding some table linens can make your dining table look warmer and more inviting. They add a fall feel and also let you and your guests know you are ready for holiday entertaining. To get the modern feel that you desire, choose linens in solid or neutral colors. You may want to stick to browns, whites, and tans, but if brighter colors are more your style, consider a rich burgundy or violet.
Black and White Wall Art
Sometimes the mottos people hang on their walls seem a bit cheesy, or look too rustic. But when done in black and white and in a modern font, the sayings “oh so cozy” or “there’s no place like home” take on a whole new feel. To pull the look together, try arranging the wall art in a space with black and white photographs or pressed leaves in neutral colors.
There are a lot of fresh materials that can add a feeling of fall to your front door, wall space, or centerpiece without feeling dated. Nowadays, wreaths are made of wine corks, faux feathers in golden hues, or spray-painted metallic leaves. If you have any feathers left over, make a feather bouquet by placing them in a crystal vase, copper mug, or white pitcher.
Fall isn’t just a season about dead leaves. Infuse your condo with freshness by keeping flowers on rotation. Try autumn favorites like gerbera daisies or sunflowers, but don’t get stuck with browns and oranges. Throw in some bright yellows and pinks to keep the live bouquets fresh and lively.
Prepping your condo for fall living and entertaining is about more than pumpkins and leaves. Find creative ways to express yourself this fall through what you use to decorate your home, and you’ll enjoy the (slightly) cooler months in style.
