15 Fabulous Ways to Transition from Summer to Fall Decor

Are you ready to start thinking about decorating your home for fall? The temperatures may still feel like summer, but we are so close to fall we can envision the leaves turning gold and yellow. To get you ready for fall decorating, here are 15 Fabulous ways to transition from summer to fall decor.

Can you believe it’s that time of year again? The days will slowly become a bit shorter. There will be a slight crispness in the air. The leaves will start to turn.

August is a transitional month. It’s the bridge between the heat of summer and the coming coolness of fall. It brings the end of lazy days at the neighborhood pool and the beginning of school. The bright colors of summer flowers fade into the muted colors of leaves and branches.

Yes, you guessed it – fall is just around the corner! Although I love summer, as a home decor lover, I am ready to start thinking of the changing season.

I adore this season for its warm colors, cozy vibes, and the opportunity to refresh my living space with the most charming autumn touches. And, I love the thought of blue jeans, boots, and sweaters.

Do you need a little inspiration for the coming fall season? Me, too. In today’s blog post, I’m excited to share with you 15 fabulous ways to transition from summer to fall home decor.

15 Ideas for Early Fall Decor

To give you a quick overview, here is a list of 15 ways to easily switch from summer to fall home decor.

  1. Embrace Earthy Tones: Think warm oranges, rusty reds, golden yellows, and deep greens to create a warm and inviting ambiance.
  2. Cozy Textiles: Swap out lightweight fabrics for plush throws, knitted blankets, and soft cushions in rich textures like velvet, faux fur, and chunky knits. These will not only keep you warm but also add an element of comfort to your space.
  3. Autumnal Wreaths: Add beautiful fall wreaths featuring dried leaves, mini pumpkins, pine cones, and seasonal flowers for an instant way to bring a touch of fall charm to your home’s exterior.
  4. Pumpkins Galore: As the weather cools, bring in pumpkins. Use them around your home in various sizes, colors, and materials. From ceramic pumpkins on the mantel to fabric pumpkins on the shelves, they are quintessential fall decor elements.
  5. Warm Lighting: Create a cozy and inviting atmosphere with warm, soft lighting. Consider swapping your cool-toned bulbs for ones with a warm glow. Add some candles or fairy lights for that extra magical touch.
  6. Autumn-inspired Centerpieces: Elevate your dining table or coffee table with a stunning autumn-inspired centerpiece. Combine elements like dried flowers, twigs, berries, and small gourds for a rustic yet elegant look.
  7. Seasonal Scents: Fill your home with delightful fall fragrances like cinnamon, apple cider, and pumpkin spice. You can use scented candles, essential oil diffusers, or simmer pots with cinnamon sticks for a natural aroma.
  8. Fall Art and Prints: Update your wall art with seasonal prints and paintings that showcase the beauty of fall foliage, harvest scenes, or charming autumn landscapes.
  9. Outdoor Comfort: As the weather cools down, create a cozy outdoor seating area with warm blankets, outdoor rugs, and cushions to enjoy the beauty of fall foliage and crisp evenings.
  10. Seasonal Table Settings: Host a fall-inspired dinner party with themed table settings. Use autumnal tablecloths, decorative plates, and napkin rings for an enchanting dining experience.
  11. Layered Rugs: Add warmth and depth to your floors with layered rugs. Place a warm-toned rug on top of a neutral one to create a visually interesting and cozy space.
  12. Bring in Nature: Collect fallen leaves, pine cones, and branches during your walks (a great way to include your kids) and incorporate them into your decor.
  13. Fall Themed Pillows: Spruce up your living spaces with fall-themed pillows featuring cute pumpkins, autumn leaves, or charming sayings.
  14. Cozy Reading Nook: Create a cozy corner with an armchair, soft blanket, and your favorite fall-themed books.
  15. Seasonal Dinnerware: Invest in seasonal dinnerware with fall patterns or colors to add a festive touch to your meals.
