Even summer lovers can’t deny the joy that comes from sipping pumpkin spice lattes and tucking yourself snugly under wool bed sheets. Fall has officially come and the season offers plenty of opportunity to sleep in, await the upcoming festivities and redecorate.
As we approach that time of year when it’s actually fun to stay indoors, here’s how you can recreate the autumn vibe right at the comfort of your personal space.
Rethink Your Color Palette
If you’re not a fan of bright colors, you’re in luck! Autumn is all about life slowing down, and darker, muted hues are definitely in season. Take inspiration from nature and set the fall mood by having a mix of browns, dark greens, and deep reds and oranges.
Set Up a Festive Table
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you want to make sure your dining area can accommodate all of your guests and leave a nice impression. If you’re looking for an excuse to remodel your kitchen and dining area, now is a perfect time.
Sporting a nice earthy tone, this set of teak tables and chairs is one of the best upgrades you can gift yourself this fall. Be sure to nab that bowl as well to place your mini pumpkins and other fall vegetables for added effects.
Dress Up Your Porch
Your outdoors deserve an upgrade this fall too! You might want to spend as much time as you can outside with friends and family in the perfect, winter Florida weather. Aside from hanging garlands, consider investing in some weather-resilient furniture for outdoor entertaining.

Set Up a Cozy Reading Nook
One of the best things about approaching the cold months is getting comfy under thick blankets with your thick socks and sweats. Make the most of the snuggle weather by creating a cozy station filled with differently textured patterned pillows, blankets, and faux fur.
Spruce up an unused corner by adding this beautiful settee where you can prop yourself to relax with a book or wine in hand! Complete the look with assorted throws and textiles.
Think Beyond Pumpkins
While there’s no stopping you from filling out every possible corner with gourds and pumpkins, they are not the only decor reminiscent of fall. Dried twigs, pine nuts and candles are just some accessories you can use. Don’t be afraid to mix in non-autumn-related decor just for a hint of contrast.
Hate the after-season cleanup? No problem! You can fill out a decorative basket or storage box with your favorite fall knick-knacks and just display them as is! Then you can pull them all away once the season is over.
These seagrass storage bins look like they are designed specifically for this task.
