Summer often feels like it goes by way too fast. As we reflect on the last few months, it all feels like a blur of barbecues, beach days and fun in the sun. Although the official first day of fall isn’t until September 21st, its already starting to look and feel like fall in Saratoga Springs. Kids are back to school, pumpkin patches are opening, and the air is getting crisper, which means sweater weather! With that being said, it’s time to start preparing your home for fall! This time of year always brings a sense of warmth and familiarity and that should flow into your home. Here are some home décor tips to help make your home feel like fall.

Return to Formality

Believe it or not, the literal décor that spells out “pumpkin spice and everything nice” and “hello fall” are not the vibe this year. It might be hard to steer clear of these in the aisles at Target and T.J. Maxx but 2023 is all about building a chic yet effortless aesthetic in your home. Put down your faux pumpkins and pick up your plaid blankets and seasonal pillow case covers. Pro tip: use the same pillows all year and only purchase seasonal pillow covers, it’s much more cost effective and will take up less space in storage. Another way you can elevate your fall aesthetic is through lighting; replace your light bulbs with GE Relax LED Light Bulbs to cascade a beautiful, glowy orange light in each room. Candlesticks in decorative holders are also a very classic way of adding a sense of moody elegance to the room.


Textures play a huge role in decoration and can help bring so much dimension into a room such as warmth and coziness, which is a must for the fall! Try adding a knit blanket alongside rustic wood furniture or pairing a velvet pillowcase with brass candlestick holders. You might be thinking that this all sounds expensive… but it can be made more affordable by adding in faux materials that mimic the appearance of the real stuff, like substituting real velvet for velveteen, you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of a Gilmore Girls episode, but way better!

Color Schemes

Some of the most popular colors this fall will be deep or earthy shades such as olive and mossy green, warm-toned browns, tans and caramels, and warm neutrals such as beiges and off whites to soften the space. Also trending for fall are bolder shades like berry tones and mustard yellows. A fun yet easy way to incorporate these colors throughout your home is via dried florals and greenery; they tend to have a more muted color palette. Use your arranged stems for your dining room tablescape, on top of your mantel, and even in the form of a wreath to decorate your walls or front door! Here are a few other ways you can include fall colors in your home: glassware, napkins, hand towels, table runners, and floor mats.
