Fall’s beauty doesn’t have to be limited to the beautiful changing colors of the leaves around your home. It’s easier than you might think to bring that fall look and feel inside your house as well. Check out some simple suggestions for adding a touch of autumn to your interior from us here at Martin’s Flooring:
Pumpkins & Gourds Galore. Pumpkins aren’t just for carving, you know. Paint them, bedazzle them or just go au natural orange and they will create a festive, fun fall feel. Mix in gourds of various colors, shapes and sizes by making a trip to your local farmer’s market!
Cinnamon Spice is Nice. Fill a small wooden crate or rustic woven basket with some of those cinnamon-scented pine cones and your home will smell heavenly. Another option? Make your own potpourri by filling a small saucepan on the stove with some water, add an orange (sliced), 1 cup fresh cranberries, 3 cinnamon sticks broken in half, 2 teaspoons of cloves and 2 teaspoons of nutmeg and let it simmer on low. Be ready for your loved ones or guests to say “Wow, it smells so good in here!”
Wreaths are Wonderful. Wreaths are a popular way to celebrate seasons beyond winter. For fall, make your own with those beautiful abundant and colorful leaves from the trees, some pinecones, Indian corn and even corn husks and acorns.
Lighten up with Candles. Want to be bathed in the smell of pumpkin pie but don’t want to do the baking? Have no fear; there’s a candle for that! Visit your local Yankee Candle retailer for such seasonal scents as apple cider, cranberry pear and autumn lodge. It will be hard to choose!
If you’re looking to delve a bit deeper into some crafts, don’t discount poking around on the ever-popular ideas site Pinterest. It’s a great way to spend a rainy day inside your soon to be festive fall home.
