Creating a Warm Fall Vibe in Your Home

If you've followed my blog for long, you know that I decorate as often as possible without spending or spending very little.  This post is all about getting a seasonal look for your home without breaking the bank.

Tip 1:  Shop your house.  By doing this, you use what you have on hand.  That's always good. Go through your home looking for items that have colors of the season.  For example, art work that might have the colors you want to feature, blankets/throws, candles, books, window treatments, a rug you could move from one room to another, etc.

Throw pillows are inexpensive and can have a desirable focal impact.

Tip 2:  And I say this "tongue in cheek": Try not to over do it.

Tip 3:  Don't be afraid to mix patterns.  As long as you stay in the same color hue, you will probably achieve a cohesive look.

Tip 4:  Place an unexpected object in the room, example, the colorful tote sitting on the bottom shelf of the table in my room below.

Tip 5:  Create a style board.  There are numerous applications online that allow you to set up collages of how you would like your room to look.  I used Polyvore™ to create my board.

Polyvore SetI was invited by Douglas Elliman Global Real Estate to create a style board showing ways to add warmth to your home.  I was not compensated for this post.

Regardless of your decorating budget, a warm fall look can be obtained very easily by using items you already have.
