The summer heat is starting to dissipate and the cool fall air is moving in, which means new produce will be in season, warmer clothing will be necessary, and holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. Here are some ways to acclimate your apartment and organize your life for the change in season.
Fall Decorating Ideas for the Apartment
Clean out the closet – A change in season is as good a time as any to go through the closet and throw out anything that doesn’t fit or you haven’t worn in a long time. Hand the discarded clothing, sports equipment or whatever it may be down to a friend or family member, or donate it to charity.
Fall wreaths – Get in the fall spirit and add a festive fall wreath either inside your apartment or on the front door. Wreaths made out of twigs and foliage are always nice for fall and add that autumn touch that signals the season.
Decorate for the holidays – Here comes the fun part – fall decorating! For Halloween and even all season long, place pumpkins throughout your apartment, including your mantle or fireplace. For Thanksgiving, set up a basket of pinecones in your living room and a cornucopia on your counter for that decorative touch.
Break out the warm clothes and blankets – Fall means that temperatures are starting to drop, so it’s time to break out the blankets, comforters and coats from the back of the closet.
Color scheme – Consider changing your drapes, sheets and wardrobe to more fall-friendly colors like jewel and earth tones to really embrace the season.
