How to Decorate Your Apartment for Fall
Fall is here, and so are we to give you some ideas for welcoming it into your lovely apartment. This month The Southerly Blog is sharing four steps for spicing up your apartment. Try out these ideas to create an environment in your home that not only speaks of fall, but smells, looks, and feels like it as well.
Few things feel better than a freshly cleaned apartment, so start new this month by deep-cleaning your place. It will help you start out the month on good terms with yourself because you can feel organized and competent, knowing where things are and knowing that you have a handle on your life. But cleaning not only gives you that psychological comfort; it helps your guests feel welcome and comfortable, too. Plus, a clean apartment is a clean template for your decorating!
- Make crafts.
Whether you’re making a rustic fall wreath or trying some classy crafts you’ve never tried before, things you’ve made yourself add a personal touch to your home that you can be proud of. Nothing says autumn better than a craft you’ve made or a printable you’ve found literally spelling it out for you. Have fun recreating childhood memories by making leaf crafts that show you just how much your artistic talents have grown.
- Take advantage of fall icons’ colors, patterns, and textures.
Leaves and wreaths aren’t the only things you can decorate with this month. Pumpkins (mini or large), flowers, pine cones, and Halloween monsters (friendly or scary) will make you look in sync with the rest of Towson’s fall celebrations. Contrast differing elements together, but use them to create a unifying overall feel. Using fall colors is an easy way to achieve this effect.
- Recreate fall smells.
Smell is one of the most powerful senses. It brings back memories and emotions you may have forgotten about, making you feel like you are right at home. Because so many distinct smells come along with the season you can make almost any pumpkin spice treat or apple cinnamon potpourri to bring together a cozy home.
