5 Easy Ways to Transition from Summer Decor to Fall

Sharing is caring!

Can you believe that fall is just one month away? If you are anxious to start decorating for the fall season, there are a few ways you can begin to transition your summer decor into fall decor!

Here are five easy ways to transition from summer decor to fall.

Switch out your curtains and throw pillows

Never underestimate the power of a throw pillow and new curtains! These simple swaps can instantly change the vibe of any room you’re in!

Swap out your summer curtains for darker tones, and swap your throw pillows for something a little more festive. If you don’t want to decorate for every holiday or season with a new throw pillow, go for neutral fall colors that can go with your fall decor no matter the holiday.

Add textured decor

Layering textured patterns can instantly make your home have a simple yet effective fall touch. Add a buffalo check print blanket to your bed, or a textured throw pillow to your couch. These are small touches you can make to your home that don’t require you to take anything down or do anything too intense.

Add soft lighting

During the warmer months, we tend to open the windows more and let the windows serve as natural lighting. During the colder months, it can be nice to add some soft lighting by using candles (real or fake) to light up a room.

Add some soft lighting to your room by adding in a few candles or hurricane vases with fake candles, with a wonderful fall scent.

Bring the outdoors inside

Incorporating outdoor elements into your home decor is a great way to give it a nice fall touch! Pine cones, ivy, and other plants can instantly add a rustic look to your home without turning it into a fall overload in one room.

If you don’t want to chance to bring bugs inside or upkeep, consider finding fake versions of these outdoor staples. You can find them in most craft stores or home decor stores.

Display your seasonal produce

If you are a lover of all fruits and vegetables, consider putting them on display in your home for a nice added fall touch. Apples in a jar on the table can subtly fall vibes while remaining a functional piece of decor.

Fall produce is already starting to show up in stores, so take advantage and put them on display to transition your decor! I recommend going for sturdy fruits that will last a while, or you will end up spending a lot of money on filling a decorative bowl. Also, keep in mind that the fruit you display should last on the counter versus keeping it in the fridge.

As you can see, there are plenty of subtle ways to start incorporating some fall into your home. If you’re not quite ready to take everything down while it’s still 90+ degrees outside, this can be a way to give yourself a little fall fix!
