If you’re getting swept up in the fall season and want to indulge in a little home decor for fall, we’re here to help. Fall is the perfect time to get a little cozy and feel like your home is a warm sanctuary where you can escape the autumn breeze. Now, we’re not talking about running out and buying long faux leaf garlands and a pumpkin patch’s worth of gourds—though we’re not saying there’s anything wrong with enjoying them. And, we definitely aren’t suggesting that you drain your savings account for the sake of adding seasonal decor only to replace it with something wintry and holiday-appropriate come December. Ideally, your autumn decor should be able to live in your home for multiple seasons and be repurposed throughout the year.
But if you are in the mood to treat yourself and your space to a little something—even if it’s just getting creative with some luxe wallpaper, a throw-pillow placement, or a blanket draping—there are easy ways to make your home feel more fall-ready. Ahead, we’ll give you some ideas on how to style your living space so it feels a little cozier and more atmospheric during the cool weather. Below, you’ll find some of our favorite budget-friendly decor upgrades, so you can break the bank on pumpkin spice lattes, your Halloween costume and fall boots instead.
