It may still be in the 90s here in northern Nevada, but the calendar says September and that means it’s not too early to start the transition from summery home decor to something seasonally appropriate. Read on for tips from The Find and try these easy home decor switches to move from summer to fall.

Layering textures is an easy way to evoke that crisp fall feeling, and it’s quick to do. Start out small – try layering a cozy throw blanket on the sofa or at the end of the bed for a bit of visual warmth, or work in some of your favorite seasonal pieces on the mantle or entry table.

Add natural elements

Fall decorating is a breeze when you incorporate the season’s bounty. And bonus – it’s easy on the wallet! Pile apples in oversized glass containers, or try adding pumpkins, pinecones, acorns, and gourds to your decor. Not a pumpkin fan? You might change your mind if you stick to a neutral color palette – try a few beautiful white pumpkins artfully displayed in a basket.

Change out the fabrics

Fall is a time for velvets, knits and cozy sheets on the bed. Change out your throw pillows and blankets, and consider working in a seasonally appropriate accent color or two. You don’t have to go overboard with the orange, either. Deeper tones suggest fall without screaming it.


Keep it simple

The easy addition of a pretty fall wreath can go a long way in evoking the seasonal switch. Those incorporating wheat, leaves, small pumpkins, or acorns are a lovely bridge between summer and fall.

Soften the lighting

Clustered candles and table lighting can help create fall ambience, with none of the harshness of overhead lighting. The Find has a great selection of beautiful and distinctive lighting – come in Thursday, Friday and Saturday to see for yourself.

Moving from summer to fall decor doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Use these tips to make the switch subtly and elegantly. Above all, keep your decor simple, opt for a neutral palette with pops of seasonal accents, and add elements slowly to keep your decor interesting and fresh all the way through the season.
