Wondering if implementing fall home décor is worth it? Canadians joke that there are only two seasons in Canada: winter and construction. Often it seems like the cold winter months are the longest season in the Great White North, while the others, especially fall, are fleeting. But as summer wanes, the leaves begin to turn, and the weather cools down, don't skip fall. Arguably, one of the most, if not the, most beautiful season, it's time to start thinking about how you can bring the beauty of fall into your home décor. We've compiled six easy ways to embrace autumn and make your home cozy with fall home décor this season.
The most iconic part of fall is the leaves changing colours. Re-create this outside beauty inside your home by adding some greenery. Pick up some fall plants like mums or ornamental kale and cabbage from your local nursery or grocery store and place them in vases around your home. Or, for a more low-maintenance option, grab a bouquet of dried leaves to put in a vase or fill a bowl. You can also add some real or faux pumpkins and gourds to your décor for a pop of colour.
Try making a fall wreath! This is a great way to add some seasonal flair to your front door. You can either buy one pre-made or create your own using some fake leaves, berries, and a wire wreath form. Try using real greenery like eucalyptus or holly for a more natural look.

Layering your rugs is an easy way to implement fall home décor and to add warmth and texture to any room. Add a second (or even third) rug on top of your existing one. You can also try different materials like wool or shag for an extra cozy feel.
Speaking of cozy, another way to make your home feel warm and inviting is by adding some extra blankets and throw pillows around your living space. Drape a blanket over the back of your sofa or put a couple of pillows on the floor in front of the fireplace. You can also add some cozy throws to your bedroom to make it extra inviting.
With the chilly weather comes the perfect excuse to stay in and curl up with a good book. Dedicate a corner of your home as your reading spot and make it extra cozy with an armchair, blanket, and table lamp. Add some personal touches like a favourite book, trinket, or fall plant to make it your own.
One of the easiest ways to add autumn flair to your fall home décor is by incorporating warm colours into your décor. Ditch the pastels and bring in some richer colours. Think earth tones like red, orange, and yellow. You can use these colours in anything from paint to throw pillows to wall art.
Fill your home with the warm, comforting scents of fall. Some of our favourite fall scents include cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin. Try to make your own potpourri using things like dried oranges, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and pinecones. You can also try a diffuser with essential oils in these scents. Place them around your living space or in strategic areas like near your front door or the bathroom. Candles are another great way to make your home smell amazing. You can find candles with all sorts of fall scents like pumpkin spice, maple, or cranberry.
You could even try baking some cookies or pies to fill your home with the delicious smell of fall baking. But let's be honest - the scent is only a bonus to the real goal of eating delicious pie.
There are endless ways to make your home feel cozy and inviting this fall. By bringing in some nature, layering your rugs, adding blankets and pillows, creating a cozy reading nook, using warm colours, and filling your home with the scent of fall, you can easily embrace autumn in your décor. So get creative and have fun!
