Bringing the Colorado outdoors in in your fall home decor is easy. Revamp and refresh your home with the changing of the seasons.
Fall is a beautiful time of year in Colorado: crisp, blue skies; endless seas of gold, red and orange; and trips to the mountains to bask in the splendor of changing aspens and bugling elk.
With so much inspiration to draw on, it’s easy to bring Colorado fall into your home decor. From simple DIY crafts to stocking up on fall accessories, there are plenty of ways to decorate your home or apartment to reflect the beauty of the season and get your home ready for Thanksgiving.
Here are three ways to get your creative fall decor juices flowing!
Bring the Outdoors In
Aspen leaves, pine cones, and evergreen boughs are abundant this time of year. Gather a few to make your own centerpieces! Fill vases or scatter along a table runner for quick and easy fall decor.
If you’re feeling crafty, try this simple craft: Autumn Leaf Mason Jar Candle Holder. Take mason jars and glue found leaves (try Aspen leaves for Colorado flare) to the outside. Place a votive candle inside, tie raffia or a ribbon around the jar, and voila!
Embrace Fall Colors
As the leaves change and fall from the trees, take inspiration for the color palette inside your home. Accessorize with rust, gold, and orange colors. Add throw pillows to the beds, couches, and chairs in your home. As temperatures drop, set out flannel and wool blankets.
Enjoy your fireplace
Make your mantle the gathering place for the season! Dress up the mantle with garland or hang a seasonal wreath over the fireplace. Brew a pot of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and you’ll be prepared for cozy evenings in front of the fire.
