Now is the time to transform your home into a cozy nest where friends and family want to gather.

Fall Welcome WreathMake visitors feel welcome from the moment they walk through the door. Decorate your front door with a seasonal accent and an attractive door mat.

Rearrange your furniture and create a conversation pit in front of your fireplace. If you don’t have a built-in fireplace, many electric fireplaces are available on the market that give the same feel and warmth with no mess or outside venting needed.

Light the candles. Choose candlesticks in metallics or warm colors. Gold is popular now. Or purchase votive Partridge Nest Tealight Holdercandles, colored and scented, and place them into gourds or apples you have hollowed out using a votive carver, making your own unique candle holders.

Add fall color pallets by selecting fabrics in shades of browns, reds, oranges and yellows for throw pillows and table runners. These same colors can be incorporated into the area rugs, which are cheaper to replace than the carpet.

Take down the summer sheers and add some substantial curtains, consider thermal window treatments which will help keep out drafts.

Crystal Tealight HolderA touch of black adds sophistication to your home decor. Use it sparingly, a few picture frames, a ceramic vase, a unique candle holder because too much black looks dreary.

Decorate using nature as an inspiration. Continue the theme using fall flowers, or artificial flowers, set about in unusual containers. Try china pitchers, ceramic teapots or watering buckets instead of your normal run of the mill vase.

With these few changes, you are ready to entertain family and friends. Fall is the lead into the holidays. Don’t hesitate, there is no reason to wait for the holiday’s to make decor changes that will uplift your spirits.
