As the weather cools down and the pumpkin spice lattes start flowing, we like to transition our homes for the new season as well! There’s something about a home decor refresh that gets us more excited for the upcoming season. From the textures to the scents, we’re rounding up our 5 favorite ways to transition your home from summer to fall.
Layer For Warmth
Nothing screams fall like layers! Just like you transition your wardrobe from summer to fall, you can transition your home in the same way. Add layers like throw blankets and extra pillows to make your home feel cozy for fall. You’ll end up using them for actual warmth when the temperatures drop, too!

Store Bright Decor in Favor Of Warmer Hues
It might sound obvious, but with the transition to fall, it’s time to put away any bright summer decor! Store any colorful pieces and bring out warmer hues like charcoal grey, burgundy, and ochre.

Change Up Your Scents
Another often overlooked way to transition your home from summer to fall is to switch up your scents! Scent sets the mood, and warm fall-inspired candles are a must. Go for scents like vanilla bourbon, praline pecan, and cedarwood. Or, try one of these DIY versions!

Dress Up Your Table
Fall (& subsequently winter) are all about entertaining — AKA, all about food. 😉 Gathering around the table with family and friends is hands down our favorite part of fall, so make sure you decorate your table accordingly! A fresh fall centerpiece and festive placemats should do the trick.

Add a Wreath To Your Front Door
A wreath on your front door lets you know it’s fall from the moment you get home. Wreaths are typically associated with the winter holidays, but we love a version made from fall leaves or seasonal greenery.
Congratulations, you’ve just transitioned your home from summer to fall! Now pour yourself a glass of mulled wine to celebrate, or try one of these fall cocktail recipes. Happy decorating!
