It's Time to Decorate Your Home for Fall

As the trees display their vibrant colors and the air turns crisp and cool, fall can be a season of change for the inside of your home as well.
Whether it's a matter of adding some throw pillows, finally having the time to do some repairs, or painting an entire room, we found this article with some great ideas from three home decorating experts.
That back-to-school vibe is in the air, and even if you're not a student, you might want to create a space for reading or pursuing a hobby. Any quiet alcove or area can work. If possible, utilize natural light. For example, a window seat makes a perfect reading niche:
If you don't have one, pull a large, comfy chair up near a window with a small side table that can hold your laptop or a book and mug of hot coffee. If the table has a drawer, you can keep necessary items on hand. Otherwise, keep a decorative bin or basket nearby.
For painting or accessorizing, you can't go wrong with classic fall colors like gold, burnt orange or brown. Autumn flowers such as mums, or even a branch from a maple tree can be displayed inside or out to add a splash of bright color and enhance your decor.
When making design changes, don't forget the big picture. After a busy summer of wear and tear, your home might need some touch ups. Maybe door frames or baseboards are scuffed, the floor needs to be polished, or carpets are in need of cleaning.
Finally, fall reminds us that the upcoming holiday season is not far away. Now is a great time to polish silverware and prepare your dining room for any entertaining you have planned.
