Incorporating natural elements is one of the best ways to bring the beauty of the season indoors. Add a few branches to a vase to add color and intrigue. Our in-store selection of artificial stems is full of beautiful options to choose from.

Nature offers the best color tips. Mix up a neutral palette by introducing Fall colors. We love the burnt-oranges, siennas and marigolds that the season brings. Combine colors and textures for an intriguing look.

Tip #3: Layer up with Textiles

Layering up with textiles is one of the easiest and quickest ways to transition your home decor from Summer to Fall. Focus on adding textures with warmer tones and richer textures. Adding cozy throw blankets to the foot of your bed, sofas and on your front porch guarantees they'll be close at hand for a chilly evening.

Tip #4: Create Seasonal Arrangements

Combine natural elements such as foliage, gourds, pumpkins, pine cones and fruit to make a colorful seasonal arrangement. Antique dough bowls are our favorite container to use. They can be moved around if you need to free up a space and can be easily changed with each season. Not sure how to put it all together? We are always happy to help create something just for you!

Tip #6: Add a Festive Fall Fragrance

Fall comes with some of the most delicious fragrances like pumpkin, vanilla and cinnamon. Set the mood with a gorgeous Fall-scented candle or reed diffuser. Spicy Apple, Simmered Cider and Farmhouse Pumpkin are a few of our favorites.

Tip #7: Include Metallics

Metallics can make a space feel glamorously autumnal. We especially love the way metallics look against natural materials like wood and leather. And don't feel like you have to stick to one color. Just look at how the copper and silver compliment one another. Stunning!

Tip #8: Create a Welcoming Entryway
