Mornings grow crisp and cool, leaves turn brilliant shades of red and gold, and fall sweeps over us. As the landscape begins to change, we find ourselves seeking warmth and comfort indoors and out. Transition your home from summer to fall with your own personal touches.

Bold Foliage

In an ideal world, we wouldn't be judged by outward appearance, but this world isn't ideal. Don't let browning summer foliage make a bad first impression. Replace dying plants with stunning pops of color: orange helenium, purple mums, pink aster, yellow goldenrod, and blue sage. Consult with your local garden supply store for plants that grow best in your climate zone.

Patio Furniture and Decor

Fall is one of the best times to purchase outdoor furniture and accessories. Use Overstock promo codes from places such as discountrue.com to save even more money on end-of-season closeouts. Choose throw pillows and blankets in warm hues, and use candles in spiced pumpkin or cinnamon apple fragrances to add an extra layer of comfort.

Pumpkin Fun

Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin! This versatile gourd comes in a variety of colors and textures and can be used indoors and outdoors. They can be cooked and eaten, painted and glittered, carved and admired. Whatever you choose to do with your pumpkins this fall, choose to make them uniquely you. Consider turning one into a planter. After cutting off the top and removing the seeds, fill with soil and plant your favorite fall flowers.

Rest and Relaxation

Change in temperatures stirs the desire to snuggle on the couch in a warm blanket with a hot bowl of soup. Create an atmosphere of rest and relaxation by making a few changes to the interior of your home. Swap out bright, cheerful pillows with those in deep, rich shades like burnt orange, plum, and ruby red. Add a soft, fluffy blanket to the couch or your favorite chair.

Smells of the Season

There is nothing like the smell of caramel apple pie baking in the oven. The smell of your favorite fall delight can trigger pleasant memories and feelings of contentment. Cinnamon brooms, seasonal air-fresheners, and citrus concoctions simmering on the stove are simple ways to fill your home with the fragrances of fall.

As you celebrate with family and friends, make this fall one to be remembered. Take in the smells and sights of the season. Most of all, enjoy eating and laughing together in the comfort of your beautiful home.
