2. Swap Area Rugs 

Trade those cool-looking summer sisal or cotton rugs for something a bit warmer underfoot. For fall decorating, a natural wool rug offers extra softness, as well as additional insulation.

4. Bring Out The Throws

5. Start a Fall Cushion Collection

Put aside summer’s trendy floral, stripe and nautical cushion covers for a mix-and-match variety of fall cushion designs: think warm spicy hues, vibrant paisleys prints, and interesting screen- or block-print motifs like fall foliage (acorns, leaves), woodland animals (owls, foxes) and a mix of tactile fabrics like velvet, woolens, felts and Ultrasuede.

6. Start a Fall scent-scape

Use up those floral candles and load up on spicy, fall fragrances. Think: sexy blends of spice, leather and musk, or wholesome outdoorsy blends utilizing spice-woodsmoke or yummy fall baking scents like spiced apple or pumpkin pie.

7. Think: Feature Wall

You’ve got one, right? Jazz it up with a rich, mellow yellow, deep moody blue or vibrant ruby red. Or add instant-wow with bold wallpaper. Fall/winter ideas to consider: faux bois, woodland prints or a romantic, Arabesque pattern.

8. Updates with Fall Flowers and Foliage, Indoors and Out

Punch up your porch and deck with urns and container plantings featuring ornamental kale and mums punctuated with small pumpkins and gourds. Indoors, display autumnal floral arrangements in your living spaces, bath and kitchen.

9. Warm Up Your Outdoor Space

Extend the outdoor entertaining season with a portable patio heater. Updating outdoor furniture for fall is easy: just add a smattering of warm, spicy hued cushions and bring out a stack of complementary chenille or cotton throws.

10. Hang a Statement Wreath

Welcome guests with a front-door wreath in the vibrant hues of fall leaves. It’s a great way to set the tone right up front, and the perfect way to celebrate the season.
