Warm and cozy are the feelings that are most suited for fall decorating. Pumpkins, apple picking, hay rides, cider – they all solicit feelings of comfort. As you prepare for the fall season, consider what needs to be cleaned up for hosting guests, celebrating upcoming holidays, and being comfortable as the weather becomes cooler.

If you are prepping for a home sale, keep decorations minimal and simple; clean, tidy, and welcoming should be the ultimate goal. Here are a few more ideas for both indoor and outdoor staging and/or decorating for fall: 

FRESHEN UP

A clean coat of paint is always a great way to provide a facelift to an area instantly. Keep the colors neutral and make sure they look professional. Consider power washing the exterior of your home, as well as clearing downspouts and gutters.

FOLIAGE

Incorporate fall foliage into decorations, such as simple vases with branches of leaves, a bowl of gourds, or apple cinnamon-fragranced candles. Outside, rake up loose leaves, pine needles, pine cones, and other foliage debris. 

WARMTH

Add throw pillows and comfy blankets draped over chairs or couches as an invitation to settle in. Use candles or wax warmers with a single spiced scent to add aromatics. A clean welcome mat and/or door wreath can create a warm entrance

LIGHT

Lack of light can make a space feel small; this may be cozy, but it’s not always appealing. Use lamps to create soft lighting, and if you have a fireplace, have it cleaned and burning for showings or guests. Consider adding walkway lighting outdoors to enhance your yard and curb appeal.
