Embracing Fall Home Decor Under $150

by | Sep 21, 2017 | Decorating, Entertaining, Home, Home Staging

When the air starts to turn crisp and the leaves begin to change, it is time to think seriously about autumn decor. From your curb appeal to your living room there are so many ways to decorate for fall. The season arrives this Friday, just in time to add a fall decor project or two on your weekend to-do list. 
Decorating this time of year can feel a bit overwhelming because there are so many variations of iconic elements that can be used to set the scene. Do you decorate for Halloween with skeletons, witches and zombies first, then Thanksgiving with pilgrims and indians– maybe it’s both at the same time? Or do you choose to just focus on the seasonal aspect of autumn using classics like cornstalks, pumpkins, leaves and pinecones. 

Whichever you choose, it’s important to stick to a theme. Exercise restraint when putting together your fall decor because imagery of the harvest, wooden and rustic signs, scarecrows and candy corn are so plentiful and pleasing, it’s easy to overdo. Simple and minimalist accouterment, like a clean fall featured wreath, can be more effective at capturing the spirit of the season than an eclectic group of autumn objects. To help you better clarify your fall style, Shutterfly put together over 80 fall decorating ideas to spark your creativity this season.

Color Trend for Fall

When you think of fall colors, perhaps bright oranges and reds come to mind as they dominate the most lovely fall foliage. However, think about using that kind of bright coloration sparingly. Paler versions of the same colors will hold you in better stead when you are creating mantelpiece designs or porch scapes. Perhaps a bright leaf garland makes a nice base, but more muted pieces with similar colors will keep your design from becoming a little too much.
This year, I’ve been noticing a trend towards using more neutral fall decor, rather than the traditional palette. Check out some of these popular Instagram photos of neutral fall favorites:

Fall Home Decor Inside

And while it’s possible to spend a pretty penny on snazzy fall designs it’s not necessary to pay much (or anything) for perfect home elements. The rustic nature of the decor for this time of year means it’s just as easy to take on some simple DIY projects and make them really look stunning. 
Create an enchanting autumnal moment for less with my fall home decor picks under $150. Pairing these decor accessories with simple elements like sheaves of wheat, pine cones, leaves and acorns, or a few easy candle designs can complete the overall design.
