Fall Decor Ideas FAQs:

What are the Fall Decorating Trends?

Natural elements are always a great idea for fall decorating this time of year. Gourds, pumpkins, and wheat sheaves are all simple additions and popular options for decor pieces. You'll see those themes in popular warm hues of fall colors throughout this post. The fall color palette will complement almost every design style.

When Should I Start Decorating for Fall?

Technically, the arrival of fall is during the fall equinox on September 22 or 23, and that is a popular time of year to start fall decorating. But really, when you start decorating for fall is a personal preference. The seasons change at different times depending on where you live. Maybe the cool temperatures and changing fall foliage come early where you are, or you're just in the mood, so you start in early September. Or you might not want to start until October, when you start thinking about Halloween. Whenever you're ready to start decorating for fall is the perfect time.

Over Mantel Fall Artwork

Finding a piece of artwork that you can hang over your fireplace mantel is a great place to begin. And the best is finding a piece that will fit into a frame that you already own or one that doesn't need a frame at all!
