Our Fall Décor Tips and Tricks
Use Fall-foliage to create table centrepieces, accents, and wreaths to incorporate natural elements into your décor.
Wood elements are classic Fall décor! Experiment with displaying wooden charcuterie boards, customize your wooden spoons with paint, or embrace simple wooden frames for photos. Our Charing Cross homeowners can check out Brooklin Vintage Decor in Courtice for some amazing seasonal finds.
Sisal rope, rattan furniture, and jute twine provide just enough roughness to tactfully juxtapose all your fluffier textiles. They’re also great neutrals—perfect year-round décor!
Swap out your throw pillows or pillow covers for seasonal ones. For all our Lyon’s Creek homeowners, check out the huge selection at Natasha Bradley Home in Niagara.
This year why not find that perfect set of bowls and plates for all the lovely family meals and warm soups that are a staple this time of year. Our residents at Pine River can easily visit the Cookstown Antique Market in Angus and find exactly what they’re looking for!
BONUS Halloween décor ideas!
No room for orange in your home décor? Not to worry! Incorporating other Halloween elements that work with your design like shades of green, purple as well as subtle hints of spookiness, will add a touch of Halloween to your home without changing your whole colour scheme.
Pumpkins everywhere! Place pumpkins in unconventional places or decorate them in bold colours to add a touch of fun to your decorating.
Don’t neglect your front porch or entryway when considering Halloween décor! Why not get a fun seasonal doormat or go on a family adventure to find some natural beauty to bring inside? One option you can try is to use fallen branches and a coat hanger to make your own witch-y door wreath or use sturdier branches and old brooms or extra straw to create a “Broom Parking” station. When in doubt, carved pumpkins are the perfect Halloween-season, front-porch decor! For all our Simcoe Landing homeowners, check out Twig Gardens and Co for great local finds.
Kraft paper and chalkboards are great for creating fun Halloween signs and designs to decorate your home and are staples of Fall décor. Have some fun as a family DIYing some Halloween signs for #LancasterFamilyNight!
