How to Decorate Your Bedroom for Fall

August 28, 2013

Cooler temperatures, the crackle of leaves under your feet, pumpkin-flavored treats, football games, and thick cozy sweaters all evoke the excitement of the fall season! There are many aspects to love about fall; why not embrace it in your bedroom?

Transition your bedroom for autumn the same way you do your wardrobe, food, and attitude. This fall, stay warm in your bedroom with luxurious fabrics and cozy colors for a great night’s sleep. Here are some decorating tips for embracing those chilly autumn nights in your bedroom:

  • Warm, Earth-Tone Colors –  It’s time to change up those bright or non-existent colors in your  bedroom for warmer autumn-inspired hues, including red, orange, brown, yellow, and gold. Warmer colors help your bedroom feel more welcoming and comfortable, especially during the fall. Add these colors to your blankets, linens, curtains, or if you’re feeling bold, your walls!

  • Cozy textures – Your autumn wardrobe probably consists of knits, wool, fur, and cashmere. Take inspiration from your fall clothing and embrace those textures in your bedroom. Look for thicker fabrics for your rugs and blankets to make a statement and increase your comfort level. Add fall-inspired prints, such as leaves, for a subtle nod to the autumn season.

  • Soft lighting – Setting up dimmer lights in place of harsh lighting can create a cozy environment in your bedroom. Use colored candles in fall hues to add more autumn inspiration. Don’t be afraid to decorate with candles, especially scented candles to create a warm ambience. Smells such as apple pie, pumpkin, maple, or the always classic vanilla, will create an environment that smells as good as it looks!
