Autumn is the best season to recharge the batteries after a summer full of outings, sun and summer meals with family and friends. In this season, after the first weeks spent outside enjoying the new flamboyant colors on the trees, a cozy and warm interior becomes essential. Discover our 7 tips to take advantage of this season and finally adopt an autumn decoration at home!
An interior in the colors of Indian summer
When we think of fall colors, we think of a variety of warm hues. Mustard yellow, moss green, brown, caramel, orange, eggplant, dark red are popular colors for attractive fall decorating. After all, it’s nature that shines in these tones – the foliage of the trees explodes with Indian summer colors and the sky turns orange-red as the sun sets. So that the darker autumn colors do not look too heavy in your interior, it is good to combine them with light and fresh accents. This will soften the overall picture a bit, but at the same time bring more life.
Fall table decoration
Why not use nature’s gifts to decorate your fall table? Adorn it with autumn leaves and flowers, moss, branches, nuts, chestnuts and pumpkins. The fall season is the best time to make your own decorations from objects found in nature. Let your imagination be free! Chestnuts become small animals using toothpicks. This activity is particularly fun for children and involves them in developing the decor in their home! Leaves are also a great way to bring fall into your own four walls.

Fall decoration outside
When the decoration in your four walls is done, you can take care of the decoration outside. Pumpkins with candles placed in front of the front door will be a pleasant source of light. We also recommend decorating the terrace with candles, lanterns, candle holders or string lights. Candles in glass bowls with a mixture of walnuts and chestnuts will be perfect too! If you have more space, you can use raffia or wooden baskets and put the nuts in them.
Late season flowers to celebrate fall
In summer, we take care of the balcony and the terrace, but not necessarily in autumn. And yet, lying in the sun reading, with tea and a warm blanket – isn’t that wonderful? So think about decorating your patio or balcony! Nothing better than adorning them with autumn flowers. Choose between autumn anemones, chrysanthemums, gladioli or marigolds and transform your balcony into a real little flower garden! Finally, if you don’t have a green thumb, dried flowers are made for you! Inside and outside, they bring warmth to your decoration.
The classic: these full of fun pumpkins!
Digging pumpkins is a Halloween activity particularly loved by children. In front of the front door, on the table or in the garden, pumpkins are the perfect decorative objects! A small decorative pumpkin without engraving is also ideal as a table, chest of drawers or sideboard decoration.
