Seasonal Apartment Decor Tips and Tricks

There is a lot to love about fall: the cold air, the warm cider, the leaves turning colors before your eyes. While December may have a reputation as the “most wonderful time” of the year, autumn is a close second. And that means we can’t help but celebrate when summer comes to a close and fall falls right into place.

One way to showcase your appreciation for the season is to embrace it inside your apartment. You can’t renovate when you’re renting, but you can certainly decorate. A few seasonal ideas include:

Rely on Nature

You don’t need to hire an interior designer to give your apartment a facelift; Mother Nature makes the perfect decorator. It’s easy to create a festive and fun autumn environment by bringing the outdoors inside. Consider buying a few seasonal plants from the local nursery or scouring open space for pine cones and branches that you can display in small vases. Orange and yellow flowers make wonderful additions, as well. 

Bust Out the Decorative Pillows

Pillows might be small, but they tend to pack a powerful punch. Decorative pillows are one of the most affordable ways to add temporary color to your apartment. If you’re looking to spice things up for fall, consider pillows that come in orange, yellow, maroon, or brown hues. 

Hit Up a Craft Store

Your artistic achievements might be limited to a loved one displaying your fifth grade artwork on their refrigerator for six months straight, but that doesn’t mean a craft store can’t inspire some creativity. Simply walking around for half an hour can give you all sorts of ideas on how to decorate. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty (or gluey) buy some of the pre-made items on display. You can often find great deals on seasonal wares. 

Go With Autumn-Themed Art

Art is the ideal way to accent your wall without having to paint it. To make your pad autumn-ready, look for art that represents the season. You might opt for pictures of September mountainsides or harvest moons. If you’re looking for something more whimsical, consider paintings of pumpkins or turkeys, cute conversation pieces that your visitors will gobble up.

Add Tiny Touches

Adding some tiny decorative touches around your house can make a big impact. These include a rustic wreath on the front door, some pumpkin spiced candles in the kitchen, a scarecrow on the back porch, or a cornucopia at the center of your dining room table.

The key to seasonal decor is to keep things simple; you don’t want to spend hours spiffing up the living room only to take it down once winter arrives. These tips are terrific ways to accessorize for autumn and “fall” in love with your home all over again.
