With fall officially in the air, it is time to do away with all your spring and summery looking items in the house and replace them will fall items. Once the summery items are put into their respective places for storing, it is time to get started decorating. Just like we have motioned before about Paint Color Affecting Your Mood, festive decorations can also affect your mood (in a good way). If you don’t already have fall decor, stop by your local Target, Homegoods, or Gardenridge to pick some up. Here is our list of our favorite fall decorating tips for different areas of the house.

The dining room is an easy place to splash in a touch of fall. Replace your summer linens with orange, mustard, or a brown colored tablecloth, napkins and holders. For the table centerpiece, add a few small pumpkins and some fake leaves for a nice fall touch.

The kitchen is another easy area to add in a touch of fall colors. Replace the summer colored bowls, plates, or vases that are on display with fall colored ones. In addition, add some seasonal fake flowers to a bold vase for an instant season change.

Touching up the living room is a matter of a nice wool throw blanket and a pumpkin or two on the mantel. Feel free to use your imagination in this room, as there is plenty or room for creativity here. A fall colored scarf could be the perfect touch to an end table, or perhaps swap out the old throw pillows with some more festive ones.

The front porch is a great place to show off your fall festivity to your neighbors. Adding a fall wreath to the door is always a nice, easy touch. Next, pick up a couple of barrels of hay to create your own scarecrow. Use one barrel as the scarecrow’s seat and use the other barrel to stuff an old pair of jeans and a flannel shirt; add a straw hat and your set. Finally, use some leftover house paint to paint some old potting plants a nice shade for fall. Add in some fresh flowers and you have a beautiful fall porch.

I hope these ideas have inspired you to think outside of the box when decorating you house this year for fall.
