Decorating Room By Room
Summer is over, and it's time to get into the seasonal spirit of fall. With a few punches of color, decorating for fall has never been easier.
Ready, set, dine
Bring the outdoors in this fall with colorful pieces for your dining table and even your walls. Candles are an easy way to create a glowing ambiance. Set the scene with this gorgeous autumn splendor candle holder centerpiece (PartyLite, $90 for set of three). Place a few harvest vegetables, mini pumpkins or gourds nearby to complete the look. Harvest place mats (Amazon, $20 for set of four) warm up the table, while hand-painted wine glasses (Etsy, $25 for set of two) add a personal touch. Your table is set, but don't forget the walls. A pop of bright crimson and gold in this changing-leaves canvas artwork (Fine Art America, various prices depending on size) will tie it all together.
Inviting curb appeal
Welcome family and friends by decorating your front yard or porch, too. These stacked blocks (Etsy, $11) look adorable on the front steps or porch railing, while this harvest banner (Etsy, custom prices) could be stretched over the top of the door or even along a fence. For your yard, stick a wooden flower (Etsy, $60) onto stakes or attach it right onto the front of your house. And don't forget the outdoor lighting. These grapevine and pinecone solar lanterns (Etsy, $30) hang nicely from a tree or doorway.

Perfect for the top of your nightstand or dresser, these plush brown, white and taupe handmade crocheted pumpkins (Etsy, $17) will match any of your existing decor and help you get cozy in the bedroom. Toss this stunning burnt orange and teal pillow (Etsy, $36) on your bed for a real showstopper, and then serve your partner breakfast in bed on this vintage wooden oak leaf tray (Etsy, $20). Lastly, get shady by swapping your existing lampshade with this hand-dyed velvet lampshade (Etsy, $58), to bring in subtle autumn flavor.
Where we live
Your living room is most likely where you spend the most time. So for the next several months, make it as comfortable as possible while the chill gets thicker outdoors. Get crafty with this designer blooms wreath (DIY with directions from Michaels), which would look beautiful hanging on the wall or placed on a fireplace mantel or shelf. These rustic glowing twig pumpkins (Kirkland's, $60) make end tables come to life, while these cream fall throw pillows (Etsy, $23) are easily incorporated into any color scheme. Finish the look with this woven green, burgundy and gray fringe blanket (Amazon, $30), which not only looks good, but keeps you toasty.
