Bringing the upcoming season into your home with fall decor does not have to be taken literally. There is a wide range of fall-related elements you can incorporate with your modern living room for a more refined autumn makeover. While it can be fun, it’s also easy to get overwhelmed with choices, so we listed 5 easy changes you can make without sacrificing style.
1. ADD A FLORAL ARRANGEMENT
An effortless way to welcome the fall spirit is to include a natural component such as flowers. Darker colors like jewel tones are usually popular, but stay in line with your space’s color palette. A festive floral centerpiece of sunflowers or chrysanthemums would be enough to brighten a room instantly.
2. BRING OUT PUMPKINS, TASTEFULLY
Because pumpkins are so popular in the fall, a common mistake is placing them in every corner of your house. There is no fault in using these as decor, but there are ways you can dodge the traditional jack-o’-lantern. Scoop out the insides, coat lightly with diluted bleach to use this as a flower vase or simply paint a cluster for display. Get more DIY pumpkin ideas here.
3. LIGHT SOME CANDLES
A secret to adding ambiance to your modern living room is burning some candles. Pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and baked pies are in season because it makes any space feel homey. Opt for candle holders that have little to no design to keep it minimal.
4. PILLOWS & THROW BLANKETS
Refreshing pillow covers and adding a chunky knit blanket to your sofa could be an extension of your home’s design. We recommend drawing the line at three pillows to avoid clutter. One large patterned pillow, a medium-sized solid color pillow, and a small throw pillow with a muted pattern can be perfectly accompanied by a fur or knit blanket to create a cozy and warm tone.
5. WARM LED LIGHTING
Nights become longer as we near cooler days and this only makes it a perfect excuse to upgrade your space. Radiating a warm glow with your lighting will keep you feeling cozy in your fall-ready modern living room. Plus, it’s a change that won’t only go with fall but for the rest of the seasons to come. Although there are a ton of lamping options, we recommend using LED fixtures to reduce your electric bill, especially during the fall to winter months, when electric bills run high from heaters.
