Your want your home to be visually appealing to your guests. Your seasonal decorating allows you a chance to express your sense of style, and the fall is an ideal time to refresh the décor of your home.

Popular today are the earth tones that speak to us of fall. Fruits like pumpkins, pinecones, apples and yellow corn can provide the inspiration for fall inspired vibrant palettes.
Regardless of how large or small your room is - or how cluttered it is - there is always room for constructing a distinctive themed space. The following are easy strategies and tips that you can try when decorating the different rooms in your house this fall season.
• Start collecting miniature pinecones and gourds and place them in medium size baskets. These look great in an entrance, in front of the fireplace or on the mantel. Make a centerpiece for your table from an assortment of leaves and dried flowers or add a vase of these to a side table.
• Emphasize your couch or chairs in the living room with plush cushions in orange, burgundy, and deep chocolate tones. Offset the cushions and pillows with a blanket or throw in a contrast color.
• Create or purchase a fall wreath made from leaves, pumpkins plus an abundance of gourds. Hanging such a creation on your door is an excellent way to celebrate the fall. If you’re the crafty type, make a few extra to give your neighbors as gifts.
• Create a feeling of comfort and warmth by adding cinnamon scents and some pumpkin spice candles in your bathroom.
