Fun Fall Decorating For Your Apartment

Fall is in the air, and the cooler weather is on the way.  It is a great time to be in the New Orleans area. Autumn brings beautiful weather, fun festivals and a whole new color palette. Get in the spirit with these fun and easy fall decorating tips for your apartment!

More of a painter than a carver? No problem! Painting pumpkins for Halloween can still create a cool aesthetic without the mess and labor that comes with carving them. There are endless options for painting pumpkins – they can be made as pretty or as spooky as you’d like. They can be customized with fun googly eyes, beads, sequins, or whatever your imagination can produce. You can create solid colors, shapes, silhouettes or multiple colors. One large pumpkin to set outside your door or several small ones placed around your apartment rental near New Orleans will look fabulous after being painted over!

Fall is all about beautiful weather, so the outdoors presents a world of natural decorating resources. Creating natural interior designs is as easy as gathering acorns into a vase or mason jars, painting pinecones to place on a banister or window sill, or fashioning a homemade wreath out of colorful fall leaves.

If you don’t want to bring Mother Nature into your home, fake leaves and greenery are great options for adding fall accents to your apartment.  Art supply stores like Michael’s, located conveniently close to 1st Lake’s Metairie apartment rentals and Kenner apartments for rent on Veterans Blvd and S. Clearview Pkwy have an abundant supply of fall supplies to make your apartment home  fall-ready.
